What Is It?
GlucoFunction is a combination of key nutrients, antioxidants and herbal extracts designed to promote healthy glucose uptake and metabolism, microcirculation, and pancreatic function to support healthy glucose utilization.*
Uses For GlucoFunction
Glucose Metabolism: Chromium, magnesium and zinc are key nutrients involved in glucose transport, utilization and gluconeogenesis. Optimal plasma levels are associated with healthy glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism and lean body mass. Additionally, a recent study suggests a synergistic relationship between chromium and biotin, suggesting that the combination may provide additional support. Bis-glycinato oxo vanadium is an organic complex of glycine and vanadium specially designed for enhanced absorption and tolerability. Research indicates that vanadium promotes healthy glucose metabolism, particularly supporting healthy hepatic and skeletal muscle glucose utilization. Numerous studies indicate that the water-soluble polyphenol polymers found in Cinsulin® cinnamon promote healthy glucose and lipid metabolism, in part through supporting healthy receptor activity. Momordica charantia, commonly known as bitter melon, is a traditional Indian vegetable noted for its ability to support kidney health and healthy blood glucose metabolism. Gymnema sylvestre promotes healthy glucose uptake into the intestines and supports enzyme activity for glucose utilization.*
Microcirculation: Vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid are powerful antioxidants to support red blood cell and vascular health. Additionally, vitamin C maintains healthy red blood cell sorbitol levels. Alpha lipoic acid supports nerve health and ocular health, supporting microcirculation, nerve conduction velocity and oxygenation to the retina. Furthermore, studies indicate that the water-soluble polyphenol polymers found naturally in cinnamon may support healthy blood flow.*
Pancreatic Function: Several preliminary human trials indicate that Gymnema sylvestre promotes healthy pancreatic beta cell function, in part through nutritional support of the pancreas. Additionally, alpha lipoic acid promotes healthy beta cell mitochondrial function.*
