Chirositol has been shown to promote healthy glucose metabolism and blood sugar levels. Chirositol helps to control blood glucose and storage of glucose by helping to bring sugar into the cells. It will not, however, cause low blood sugar in those with normal blood sugar levels. Chirositol also acts on our serotonin levels in the body by raising them. Serotonin is our body's 'happy hormone' and it has been shown that reduced serotonin levels with a poor metabolism is linked to increased sugar cravings. By balancing serotonin and blood sugar, Chirositol also helps to control appetite.
Chirositol has also helped people with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is an insulin-resistant disorder with resulting elevated male hormones. PCOS is a very challenging condition to treat and Chirositol effectively reduces excess male hormones, reduces weight and appetite, and normalizes ovulation, thereby improving fertility.
Cinnamon Bark Extract
Cinnamon is known to have an anti-diabetic effect. It helps lower blood sugar levels and also can improve sensitivity to the hormone insulin, which is the vital hormone needed for keeping blood sugar levels balanced.
The special compounds in cinnamon are able to help reduce levels of total cholesterol, LDL “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides, while HDL “good” cholesterol remains stable. Cinnamon has also been shown to reduce high blood pressure, which is another threat for causing heart disease or a stroke.
Chromium might help regulate blood sugar. Some evidence suggests that taking chromium picolinate orally can lower fasting blood glucose, insulin levels, and hemoglobin A1c. It may also decrease weight gain in type 2 diabetes patients who are taking certain diabetic medications.
Chromium plays a role in the insulin-signaling pathways that allow our bodies to control the amount of sugar we take in, helping balance blood glucose levels and giving us stable energy.
