Is Glutagenics Canada’s Best Glucose Control Supplement?
Another Metagenics natural health supplement is gaining traction across the country – Glutagenics. With an estimated 5.7 million Canadians in a state of pre-diabetes (characterized by a state of abnormal blood sugar levels) it’s no wonder Canada is seeking a better solution for glucose control. Those in-the-know are turning to Metagenics’ proven formula as a means to greater health and wellness. Here’s why.
Why Canada Turns to Metagenics Glutagenics for Healthy Glucose Levels and What Else You Need to Know
Why You Need Glucose Control
Glucose is a sugar found in your bloodstream which moves to all cells in your body to supply energy.
You need to maintain a safe level of blood sugar to mitigate the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and related health issues, including obesity.
Triggered by food consumption, blood glucose levels vary throughout the day, which is why you may experience gradual or swift changes in energy even if you’ve had a good night’s sleep.
Glucose levels change in some people more dramatically than others, in particular those suffering from diabetes. That said, better glucose control is required for all because as stated in the introduction, you may be living in a state of pre-diabetes whether you know it or not.
At the very least, everyone could use a helping hand when it comes to maintaining optimal energy throughout the day, or both professional and social life may suffer.
Now that you know why you need better glucose control, let’s see why Metagenics Glutagenics is the solution.
It’s Got Glutamine
One Metagenics Glutagenics serving is packed with 3.5 grams of L-Glutamine. This important amino acid can alter blood sugar levels in either direction, as needed.
Studies have found that glutamine supplementation may lower the blood sugar levels of those suffering type-2 diabetes. The occurs when glutamine increases the amount of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) released into your blood. In a recent article about GLP-1 receptor agonists we addressed its role in control blood sugars for diabetics. This makes Glutagenics a great companion (when permitted by your physician) for another Metagenics product – UltraFlora Control which provides a healthy alternative to GLP-1 receptor agonists for losing unhealthy weight.
On the flip side, glutamine also has the ability to increase blood sugar through a series of chemical reactions, where needed. For this reason, those with type-2 diabetes considering a glutamine supplement should only do so under the direction of their doctor. Otherwise, you may seek to increase your glutamine levels should you be risk of having a low blood sugar reaction. This can occur when you’ve skipped a meal/snack, taken too much insulin (diabetics), eaten too few carbohydrates, have excessively exercised, or over-consumed alcohol.
Glutamine is also recommended for gastrointestinal health as it helps maintain the barrier between your intestines and the rest of your body, and assist with optimal growth of intestinal cells. It really is a “super supplement”.
It’s Got Licorice Root
One Glutagenics serving also contains 500 mg of deglycyrrhizinized licorice root. The molecules within licorice root have been found to reduce blood sugar. In addition, they possess anti-inflammatory properties and studies find that deglycyrrhizinized liquorice is effective in the treatment of chronic duodenal ulcers. Perhaps more importantly for Canadian consumers, these powerful molecules are extremely well tolerated by the human body.
It’s Got Aloe
Who knew aloe vera was good for much more than soothing skin irritations? Metagenics for one, as a Glutagenics serving also boasts 50 mg of aloe decolorized inner leaf gel powder. Studies indicate that aloe supplementation may help improve HbA1c levels (a measure of glucose control) in people with type-2 diabetes and may reduce fasting plasma glucose levels in those with pre-diabetes. Looks like those 5.7 million Canadians have something better to look forward to when they add Glutagenics to their nutritional regime. Will you?
