- Supports Maintenance of Normal Blood Sugar Levels
The impact of blood glucose on healthcare
The NIH reports that approximately 23.6 million children and adults in the United States suffer with the symptoms and the life-altering effects of hyperglycemia, or too much blood sugar. Typically, this condition is the precursor for a number of devastating health problems that can age the body prematurely and contribute to increasing healthcare costs. The report suggests that hospital stays related to excessive blood sugar problems exceeded $3 billion in 2001, and the costs have risen each year. It is estimated that with appropriate care $2.5 billion of hospital-related treatment could have been averted.
A number of things can be done to support the management of normal glucose levels. Healthy eating, physical activity, and blood glucose testing are the most important and most widely recommended. Recent research has suggested that botanicals used in Ayurvedic medicine can have an impact on supporting the balance of glucose in the blood. Supplementation with vital minerals has also suggested great promise in normalizing blood sugar levels.
Sugar Balance is a unique formula and guide that includes these key botanicals and minerals, with Alpha Lipoic Acid as well as a balanced diet and exercise plan, to help support the management of blood glucose levels and promote healthy glucose processing.
About Blood Sugar
Blood sugar refers to glucose in the blood. Glucose is a monosaccharide, or simple sugar, that is an important carbohydrate commonly found in cells and essential in synthesis of many biological substances. The human body uses it as a source of energy and to facilitate certain metabolic processes.
The body gets glucose through diet. Carbohydrates are the most significant source of glucose to the human body. When food is digested, glucose is absorbed into the blood stream and carried to every cell in the body. The level of glucose, or blood sugar, in humans is regulated by the hormones insulin and glucagon that are manufactured in the pancreas, a gland found in the abdomen.
Normal glucose levels contribute to over-all good health because all functions in the body need glucose. When a glucose imbalance occurs, blood sugar can build up causing a condition known as hyperglycemia, which can be damaging to the entire body, especially kidneys, eyesight, and the heart and circulatory system. Too little glucose is known as hypoglycemia, and it, too, can wreak havoc in the body, causing a wide range of symptoms that are not immediately identified as hypoglycemia. An imbalance of blood sugar in the body can be identified by a health care professional through tests designed to specifically measure glucose.
