The gymnema plant is a large climbing branch that grows in the dry forests of India. The leaves of the Gymnema sylvestre plant contain gymnemic acids, which have been shown to slow the transport of glucose from the intestines to the bloodstream. Some research also suggests that gymnema sylvestre extract can help repair and regenerate the beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin.
Bitter melon is a unique vegetable-fruit that can be used as food or medicine. It is the edible part of plant Momordica charantia. The fruit contains at least three active substances with anti-diabetic properties, including charantin, which has been confirmed to have a blood glucose-lowering effect.
Chromium is an essential mineral for human nutrition and aids in the normal function of insulin. It contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.
Zinc is necessary for the functioning of more than 300 different enzymes and plays a vital role in an enormous number of biological processes. Zinc is a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) and is in a number of enzymatic reactions involved in carbohydrate and protein metabolism.
Water-soluble B vitamins are one of the most important vitamins that can have a great influence on a person´s health as well as on one´s physical and mental performance concerning the nervous system. These essential nutrients help convert our food into fuel, allowing us to stay energized throughout the day. B-complex vitamins, particularly B6 and B12, are vital for the health of people who have diabetes. That’s because these vitamins support nerve health, which is critical when addressing conditions such as diabetic neuropathy.
Biotin is another B-complex vitamin that is necessary for cell growth and for the metabolism of protein, fats and carbohydrates. This vitamin has also been shown to lower fasting blood sugar levels and reduce risk of complications such as diabetic neuropathy.
Alpha-lipoic acid, quercetin, astaxanthin and vitamin C represent a combination of very strong antioxidants. Alpha-lipoic acid is a cofactor in vital energy-producing reactions in the body. It crosses blood-brain barrier and its antioxidant activity shows on the brain level, too. It is especially recommended to help relieve the symptoms caused by diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy and cardiopathy such as: pain, weakness, rigidity, cramps, numbness, tingling and los of sensation in nerves.
Quercetin belongs to a group of polyphenolic substances known as flavonoids. It is believed that quercetin is most active of all flavonoids. Quercetin shows antioxidant and antiinflamatory activity.
Astaxanthin is a member of carotenoids. Its unique molecular lipophilic and hydrophilic properties allow it to filters into every cell of the body. Astaxanthin has ability to neutralize reactive oxygen species. Because of that, astaxanthin is a strong antioxidant and antiinflamatory agent with cardioprotective, neuroprotective, antidiabetic, anticancer, antiasthmatic, oculoprotective, nephroprotective, gastroprotective and immunoprotective effects. Vitamin C is the most important water-soluble biological antioxidant. It can scavenge both reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species.
