More about AIM GlucoChrom ingredients:
Chromium 200 mcg (per capsule): GlucoChrom’s chromium is derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast that has been organically bound to trivalent chromium. Unlike most chromium supplements, which contain synthetic forms (such as chromium nicotinate or picolinate), GlucoChrom offers a truly natural, bioavailable, and easily absorbed form of this trace element that the body recognizes as food. Due to nutrient-depleted soil, food processing, and overconsumption of refined carbohydrates, as much as 90 percent of the North American population may be chromium deficient. Symptoms of chromium deficiency include glucose intolerance, which can lead to diabetes, as well as fatigue, nerve pain, and high cholesterol. Chromium improves the body’s response to efficiently use insulin by regulating the movement of glucose out of the blood and into the cells, thus maintaining stable blood sugar levels.
Vanadium citrate mcg (per capsule) Evidence suggests that vanadium is an essential, ultratrace mineral needed for cellular metabolism. It may also be involved in the reduction of serum cholesterol by suppressing cholesterol synthesis by the liver. Vanadium is thought to activate insulin receptors, thus improving insulin sensitivity and promoting a healthy reduction of blood sugar levels. In addition, vanadium also appears to play a role in healthy pumping of the heart muscle as well as strengthening of bones and teeth.
Gymnema sylvestre leaf, 4:1 extract This woody climbing plant, native to India, has long been used as a treatment for diabetes. It is known to stimulate insulin secretion while lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Favored for long-term use as a supplement for blood sugar stabilization, gymnema has been used with success in diabetic patients and is noted for lowering blood glucose levels of patients who have fasted for testing. This herb may also improve the health of the pancreas by regenerating beta cells, which make and release insulin. Recent scientific research with gymnema extract has shown positive results for Type II diabetes.
Bitter melon fruit (Momordica charantia) Bitter melon, also known as balsam pear, is a tropical fruit that grows in Asia, East Africa, and South America. Bitter melon may help to lower blood sugar levels by increasing the activity of hexokinase and glucokinase, the enzymes in the body that convert sugar into glycogen, which is then stored in the liver and used later for energy. Some evidence shows that bitter melon may cause a renewal and recovery of the insulinproducing beta cells of the pancreas. The fresh juice or extract of the unripe fruit has been clearly established to have blood sugar-lowering action.
