Today we continue on with our talk on Diabetes! We are going to pick back up on the nutrients that we include in our products and how they can help you with your fight with diabetes.
We begin today with Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC). To get this important nutrient in the body, we must provide it in this form as then the body will convert Acetyl-L-Carnitine into Carnitine. Once in the body, this nutrient improves insulin sensitivity, increases glucose storage, and optimizes carbohydrate metabolism and this is according to research done by Crahan in 1999. Carnitine also appears to help against diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy is a non-inflammatory process characterized by the loss of feeling due to disturbances in the peripheral nervous system. Many of you know that many diabetics don’t have feeling in the feet so they get wounds on their feet but they don’t even know about them. So getting something into their body that helps reduce this neuropathy is so vital for diabetes patients. This important nutrient is found in the Pinnaclife Full-Spectrum Multi-Vitamin product and you can find out more by visiting Pinnaclife – Acetyl-L-Carnitine.
The next nutrient we want to focus on is Chromium. Chromium is also found in our Full-Spectrum Multi-Vitamin supplement. It is estimated that over 90% of the population in the United States are deficient in this trace mineral according US Department of Agriculture. In the 1970’s it was established that chromium plays an essential role in the control of blood sugar in humans. It also essential for glucose metabolism and reducing insulin resistance. Physicians and scientists admit that the addition of chromium to supplements is no longer popular. It takes a dose of at least 100 micrograms to correct a chromium deficiency. Our Full-Spectrum vitamin contains 150 micrograms of this important nutrient and this should help us all. To read a complete description on Chromium, visit Pinnaclife Nutrients – Chromium.
We are going to talk about one more very important nutrient today and that is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). This is a very important anti-oxidant that works best when taken together with Vitamin C and Vitamin E. This is how it is found in our Full Spectrum product. CoQ10 has been found to reverse the effects of diabetes on the livers glutathione activity. CoQ10 protects the heart, liver, and the brain, and it if it helps those with Diabetes, it will help those of us who do not have diabetes also. There is much more information to learn about CoQ10 so we encourage you to educate yourself by visiting Pinnaclife Nutrients – CoQ10.
Just as we did with cancer last week, we want to encourage you to view our video on Diabetes as well. This short video does a great job of summarizing the disease and discusses how the Pinnaclife supplements can help you with your battle with the disease.
