InBalance Glucose Management supplements are designed to supply key nutrients to support your body's ability to stabilize blood sugar after eating.
By slowing the breakdown of carbohydrates in the intestine, sugars are absorbed into the bloodstream more slowly, avoiding a sharp rise in blood sugar. The natural ingredients in INBalance work together to promote healthy glucose metabolism which how your body keeps blood sugar balanced.
Healthy glucose metabolism can make it easier to attain and maintain ideal weight. Avoiding after meal blood sugar spiking can also help protect your body from some of the consequences of elevated blood sugar such as vascular disease, including high blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks. Nerve damage, eye and kidney disease are also less frequent when blood sugar is stabilized. Less blood sugar spiking can also improve long term glucose control as evidenced by lowering hemoglobin A1c. Using a supplement like ours to support your body’s response to insulin and minimizing blood sugar spiking is essential for proper glucose management.
MORUCEL: Multiple studies conclude that mulberry leaf extract can be extremely beneficial to individuals with blood sugar concerns. INbalance employs the patent pending ingredient MoruCel tm, mulberry Leaf Extract, to help stabilize post meal blood sugar spiking, by inhibiting carbohydrate breakdown which slows down the rate and amount of sugar released into the blood stream. MoruCel is a rich source of 1-deoxynojirimycin or DNJ, an iminosugar which powerfully inhibits alpha glucosidase, the enzyme which breaks down carbohydrates into simple sugars. Slower release of glucose helps the body maintain proper, healthy blood sugar levels which can improve insulin response in healthy individuals. MoruCel tm also contains fagomine, a nutrient which may support insulin secretion by the pancreas.
BITTER MELON: Bitter melon has been found to enhance the tissues response to insulin supporting insulin sensitivity.Compounds in bitter melon have been shown to activate AMPK, the protein that regulates glucose uptake, a process which is impaired in diabetics. Bitter melon also contains a lectin which has insulin-like activity due to its nonprotein-specific linking to insulin receptors. It may help lower blood glucose concentrations by acting on peripheral tissues and, similar to insulin’s effects in the brain, suppressing appetite. This is likely a major contributor to helping the body reduce blood sugar spiking.
ASTRAGALUS EXTRACT: Astragalus, a member of the pea family, contains an isoflavone that can enhance metabolism and may support the body’s ability to balance blood sugar. Immune strengthening polysaccharides are found in astragalus which has been used traditionally to combat peripheral vascular disease, hypertension and diabetes. A special chemical component in astragalus can turn on an enzyme, telomerase, which maintains the ends of chromosomes (called telomeres) protecting DNA from being damaged. Researchers have found a correlation between telomere length and susceptibility to certain aging related diseases.
CACTUS EXTRACT (Opuntia ficus-Indica): This prickly pear cactus family extract contains a soluble fiber, called pectin, which has been shown to lower blood glucose by decreasing the absorption of sugar in the stomach and intestine. It has been used traditionally for type 2 diabetes, elevated cholesterol and obesity. It’s antioxidant benefits can help decrease oxidative stress and free radical damage which promote aging and degenerative diseases.
At INBalance Health they are dedicated to providing healthy snack bars and foods that are suitable for diabetics, like the INBar, and natural supplements and vitamins for glucose and weight management. They believe a healthy future is your choice. Their goal is to provide you with a complete doctor-formulated program of snacks and supplements that culminates in what they call the “Ideal Body System.” They focus on proper insulin homeostasis which leads to balanced blood sugar levels and in turn supports metabolic pathways that help you attain and maintain ideal weight.
Although originally developed to be suitable for diabetics, this system can work for anyone, and everyone, no matter their present state of health. The same basic principles for glucose, and weight management, apply to those who want to maintain their present weight, lose weight, or simply want to avoid potential health issues in their future.
