Ultra Preventive 2000 Series
A Dietary Supplement
Gluco-Support Formula provided by Douglas Laboratories is a synergistic and comprehensive combination of vitamins, minerals, herbals, and other nutrients carefully formulated and specifically designed to offer nutritional support for healthy glucose metabolism.
Gluco-Support Formula tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to nutritionally support their healthy glucose metabolism.
Studies show that a high percentage of adults in North America and other developed countries eat less than the minimum daily allowance of 10 or more essential nutrients. Adequate amounts and proper balance of these nutrients are needed not only for maintaining good health, but also for the dietary management of the bodys structure as well as the optimum functioning of its various systems, including the immune system.
The Gluco-Support Formula has been carefully developed to contain the right proportions of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and other nutrients without danger of toxic build-up or other side effects. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitive relationship with other nutrients, allergenic potential, and long-term safety.
Certain nutrients such as beta-carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins are included in high-potency amounts because of the vital roles they play in antioxidant protection, energy production, the maintenance of healthy blood cells, the nervous system, hormonal balance, and more. Minerals and trace elements are provided in their safest and most bioavailable forms. Gluco-Support Formula contains not only the base formula of Douglas Laboratories Ultra-Specific Nutrition 2000 Series that offers intensive support for the healthy functioning of the body in general, but also a blend of herbs and additional nutrients specifically formulated to offer additional support of the bodys mechanisms that maintain healthy glucose metabolism.
Glucose metabolism that is associated with abnormally high blood glucose can lead to high levels of glycation. Glycation is the non-enzymatic attachment of sugars to major molecules in the body, including proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids. Glycation reactions generate advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) and glycotoxin intermediates. AGEs cause abnormal and destructive functioning of body proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids. AGEassociated damage is suspected in the pathogenesis of many diseases and age-related deteriorations. There are three primary routes by which nutritional components can help prevent AGE formation. Maintenance of normal blood glucose levels is fundamental to preventing AGE formation.
Chromium is an integral component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), a naturally occurring compound of chromium, nicotinic acid, and amino acids that is essential for proper glucose metabolism. Adequate chromium nutrition is essential for the formation of GTF and subsequent control of blood glucose levels. Gymnema sylvestre is an Ayurvedic botanical that may assist in the normal regeneration and repair of healthy pancreatic beta cells. Gymnema is also suspected of reducing intestinal glucose absorption. Biotin serves as a cofactor of glucose metabolism and induces glucokinase, an enzyme that encourages cells to retain glucose for energy production rather than release it into the blood stream. Alpha-lipoic acid appears to enhance glucose use by muscles by augmenting muscle protein content.
