Why the WSN® Glucose Support Formula
Experts agree that the key to managing diabetes and insulin resistance is proper diet, balanced nutrition and moderate exercise.
What do we mean by nutrition? Nutrition is the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for growth, health and good condition.
If you can't get all the nutrition you need from food, you must supplement your diet with vitamins and minerals.
The WSN® Glucose Support Formula was designed specifically for diabetics to nutritionally repair the cells so that you can get and maintain normal blood sugar levels, lose weight more easily, and increase energy levels.
Nutrition is essential to life. We all know that it would be best to receive the nutrients we need from the food we eat.
However, in our modern world this has become impractical and just about impossible. Modern food processing, fast food, poor food choices, and unbalanced diets contribute to inadequate intake of vital nutrients. Many of today's modern "foods" can actually rob the body of essential vitamins and minerals that it needs to maintain normal blood sugar levels.
The Science Behind the Ingredients
of the WSN® Glucose Support Formula
Foodform® GTF Chromium
GTF is an abbreviation for Glucose Tolerance Factor.
The organic chromium found in brewers yeast is the richest food source of chromium and is known as Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). When GTF Chromium is converted to Foodform® GTF Chromium, it becomes an even higher potency organic chromium yeast, which is the most safe and effective form of chromium.
Foodform® GTF Chromium has been shown in human studies to be 258% more biologically active than inorganic chromium and far more active than just chromium yeast itself. Inorganic forms of chromium such as chromium picolinate, are poorly absorbed, where only as little as 1% to 3% is absorbed, regardless of how much you take.
Foodform® GTF Chromium is patented and available nowhere else.
Studies show that GTF chromium stimulates insulin activity directly by binding to both insulin itself and specific insulin receptors.
GTF chromium has the following benefits:
- Helps control blood glucose by promoting glucose uptake by muscles and organs
- Stimulates burning of glucose for energy
- Reduces fat levels in blood
- Helps maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels
- Increases the good type of cholesterol (HDL)
- Suppresses hunger symptoms
Chromium has been found to be an essential nutrient for glucose metabolism (the set of chemical reactions that happen in living organisms to maintain life) and maintaining normal blood sugar levels. It helps the insulin in the blood bind to the surface of the cells in the body so that the sugar in the blood can enter the cells and be used for food and energy.
Studies suggest that vanadium may reduce blood sugar levels and improve sensitivity to insulin in people with type 2 diabetes. In one study of people with type 2 diabetes, vanadium also lowered their total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol.
Over the past 15 years, considerable evidence has accumulated to show that vanadium will imitate insulin action in a number of isolated cell systems and produce glucose lowering effects.
Banaba Leaf Extract - Also Known as Corosolic Acid
Banaba leaf extract is a time-tested and traditional medicinal plant in Asia. It has been used for centuries as a diet-aid to slim bodies, for high blood-sugar control, to heal mouth ulcers and abdominal pain.
Its active ingredient is known as corosolic acid and studies have shown it to significantly enhance glucose transport. Corosolic acid activates the “shuttle” that attracts glucose molecules, which are then transported into cells for energy, thus stabilizing blood glucose levels.
Studies on non-diabetics indicated that blood glucose levels were not affected by banaba leaf extract supplementation. Banaba leaf extract has been shown to be safe without any adverse side effects.
Gymnema sylvestre, an Ayurvedic herb, has been used in India for the treatment of diabetes for over 2,000 years. Gymnema sylvestre came to be known as "destroyer of sugar" because, in ancient times, Ayurvedic physicians observed that chewing a few leaves of Gymnema sylvestre suppressed the taste of sugar.
The primary application was for adult-onset diabetes, a condition for which it continues to be recommended today in India. The leaves were also used for stomach ailments, constipation, water retention, and liver disease.
The action of Gymnema sylvestre on the pancreas was first documented in the late 1920's. In recently published research from 2004, scholars at Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington D.C. showed Gymnema sylvestre to be supportive of normal body weight and normal blood lipid levels. The herb has been used since the sixth century BC to support normal blood sugar levels in the body.
King's College in London published study results in 2005 showing the gymnemic acid in Gymnema sylvestre was also supportive of normal insulin levels in the body.
White Kidney Bean Extract
Phaseolamin or Phaseolin is one protein derived from white kidney bean which has been researched extensively in America, Italy, Japan and Norway, and is backed up by clinical trials that showed a 66% to 75% reduction in starch absorption.
Phaseolamin (Phaseolin) is an amazing, non-stimulant, all-natural nutritional ingredient. It is the first nutritional ingredient that has been clinically and scientifically proven to neutralize starch found in foods such as potatoes, breads, pasta, rice, corn and crackers.
How does Phaseolamin work? During the digestive process, your body converts carbohydrates, found in starchy foods such as potatoes and pasta, into sugar. Your body does this by breaking down the carbohydrate molecule with alpha amylase, an enzyme that is found in saliva and is also produced in the pancreas.
These sugar calories are either burned off, through exercise, or stored as fat in fat cells for future use. Unfortunately, inactivity means that these stored fat cells accumulate. The result is weight gain.
Phaseolamin, an exclusive, all-natural nutritional ingredient extracted from kidney beans, helps "neutralize" the digestive enzyme alpha amylase before it can convert starch into glucose, which then turns into fat. Essentially, it allows the carbohydrates to pass through the system possibly with less caloric intake.
Indian Kino Extract
Indian Kino, also known as Pterocarpus marsupium, is a tree which commonly grows in western and southern parts of India and Sri Lanka that has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine.
Extracts of the leaves, flowers, and gum of this tree have been used medicinally in the treatment of diarrhea, toothaches, fever, urinary tract infections and skin infections. The heartwood and bark have a long history of use in India and have been used in the management of diabetes.
Pterocarpus marsupium has been shown to protect and regenerate beta cells (beta cells are cells that are located in the pancreas), as well as lowering blood glucose levels. It reduces glucose absorption from the digestive tract and improves insulin levels by helping repair the insulin producing cells of the pancreas.
Biotin is a water soluble B-vitamin essential for assisting in metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and protein. Biotin is essential for healthy cell growth, and is often recommended for hair, nail and skin conditions.
A considerable amount of research suggests that biotin plays a role in regulating the sugar supply in the blood and is involved in energy metabolism.
Intestinal bacteria produce a small amount of biotin, which may be absorbed and contribute to daily needs. However, in people who have poor intestinal health, biotin levels may be less than optimum.
Biotin supplementation has been shown to, improve glucose metabolism, improve glucose utilization, improve glucose tolerance, and increases glycolysis (a metabolic process that breaks down carbohydrates and sugars through a series of reactions and releases energy for the body) in the liver and pancreas.
There has been a lot of recent interest in the role of Vitamin D3 (often referred to as Vitamin D) in the human body. This often overlooked vitamin is actually manufactured by the body if we get enough sunshine, exercise, and calcium in our diet.
However, people who live in higher latitudes in either the northern or southern hemispheres do not often get sufficient sunlight exposure, especially during the late Fall or Winter months. As a result, many of us remain deficient in vitamin D3 throughout much of our lives.
Exercise and calcium from our diet are also required to manufacture vitamin D3, so that further complicates things. Most of us do not do enough exercise and fail to eat calcium rich foods like vegetables and/or dairy products, or oily fish.
Although we make vitamin D3 in our bodies, data shows vitamin D3 deficiency is common, especially in people with diabetes.
Until recently, medical understanding of vitamin D3 has been limited to knowledge about bone health and calcium absorption. However studies over the past decade have now shown vitamin D3 has actions in the body unrelated to bones, including assisting in normal immune function, normal blood vessel health, normal organ function (including the pancreas). Vitamin D3 is required by the pancreas to make and release insulin.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant.
The health status of the digestive system and the kidneys significantly influence magnesium status. Magnesium is absorbed in the intestines and then transported through the blood to cells and tissues.
Eighty percent of American women and seventy percent of men do not eat even the recommended daily requirement of magnesium. And most soil throughout the world is deficient in magnesium. Thus, most foods today, even those supposed to have a high content of magnesium, are low themselves. As a single essential nutrient, magnesium may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient! There are many reasons for this widespread deficiency: nutrition, stress and drugs.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism.
Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral, needed in very small quantities by almost all life forms. Although it is just a trace mineral, meaning it is present in our bodies in very low quantities, it does perform many important functions in the human body (it is found in the bones, liver, and kidneys).
Serious research into the importance of molybdenum has been carried out only in the last 20 years or so. Evidence shows molybdenum is needed for optimal health, and lack of it triggers certain health problems.
Molybdenum plays a role in a number of important bio-chemical processes, like waste processing in the kidneys, development of the nervous system, and the activation of enzymes that are involved in breaking down food to produce energy.
Zinc is needed by over 300 enzyme systems in the body. Some of those are involved with the metabolism of blood sugar and are so important that a lack of zinc, in and of itself, can cause type I or type II diabetes.
Zinc is highly concentrated in the insulin-secreting cells of your pancreas (called beta cells). Insulin is stored in these beta cells together with zinc. Beta cells must have zinc to function properly and without it they are in big trouble.
In fact, beta cells contain their own special zinc transporter called zinc transporter 8 that enables beta cells to take up zinc. Zinc directly influences how insulin is produced and secreted by your beta cells. This means that if you have a deficiency then you can’t store and release insulin properly.
Thus, adequate zinc is required for the healthy function of your pancreas so as to help regulate your blood sugar in an optimal way.
Diabetes is characterized by higher than normal blood sugar levels. Long-term elevations in blood sugar increase the body’s production of free radicals (tissue-damaging substances) that cause many of the complications of diabetes including eye and kidney damage, heart disease, and memory impairment.
Vitamin A is an antioxidant. Antioxidants, as their name implies, help to prevent the damaging effects of oxygen and other harmful substances on your body's tissues.
However, the essential roles of vitamin A in alleviating some of the complications of diabetes cannot be over-emphasized; diabetics should therefore be encouraged to consume more vegetables and vitamin A-fortified diets. This will go a long way in improving life expectancy and patients' outcome in diabetes.
Furthermore, a study in 1996 reported improvements in blood glucose levels in diabetics taking diet supplements rich in vitamin A. These suggest that vitamin A and beta-carotene may be associated with insulin secretion and carbohydrate metabolism.
