Product Overview: Diabetes in general affects approximately 25.8 million Americans as of 2011, with 18.8 million individuals diagnosed with diabetes and 7 million undiagnosed (National Diabetes Fact Sheet, 2011). More than 90% of the diabetics in the United States are Type 2 diabetics, and the incidence of Type 2 diabetes has increased by over 50% in the past 30 years. It is also estimated that 24% (almost 1 in 4) people in the US have symptoms of insulin resistance, placing an estimated 70 million people at risks associated with insulin resistance, including the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (American Diabetes Association, www.diabetes.org).
GluT-reg4 contains dietary supplements that help with insulin receptor sensitivity and blood sugar homeostasis, helping to decrease the negative effects of poor blood sugar regulation. GluT-reg4 helps decrease the negative effects of oxidative stress, supports cholesterol and vascular health and helps increase cellular energy and metabolism and improves insulin receptor signaling. GluT-reg4 contains the antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and the nutrients chromium, benfotiamine and pyrroloquinolone-quinone (PQQ). ALA is reported to help improve insulin receptor activation, increase AMP-K activation and improve glycemic control. Chromium provides support for healthy glucose metabolism and helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and fats. Benfotiamine is a lipid soluble vitamin B1 (Thiamin), which can help improve carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism to produce cellular energy. Pyrroloquinoline-quinone is a redox cofactor that is involved in mitochondrial energy production and in insulin signaling activation.
