Nutrient - Metabolic support nutrients
Metabolic support nutrients provides a combination of vitamins, minerals and phyto nutrients that support the regulation of blood sugar (glucose) within normal levels, and the utilisation of fat for energy. The regulation of blood sugar is important for normal health.
Magnesium, chromium and zinc are important for the normal actions of insulin.
The metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to produce energy requires numerous magnesium-dependent chemical reactions.
A number of manganese-activated enzymes play important roles in the metabolism of carbohydrates. B vitamins are important for enzymes that start the reactions that break sugar into energy, and for the cells’ efficient response to insulin. Vitamin C may help support normal blood sugar and lipid levels. Elevated blood sugar levels may also reduce vitamin C levels within the cell.
Fenugreek seeds and cinnamon bark may help to maintain normal blood sugar levels, blood cholesterol and blood triglyceride levels. Liquorice root extract may help to maintain normal blood sugar control and support normal levels of abdominal fat. Excess abdominal fat may negatively influence blood sugar balance.
Inulin is a non-digestible complex carbohydrate and shares many of the properties of soluble dietary fibre, including the ability to support blood sugar and blood fat levels within the normal healthy range.
