Puritan’s Pride Blood Sugar Specifics is a dietary supplement containing ingredients which contribute to maintaining the correct glucose-insulin balance, supports a healthy metabolism of the organism and promotes weight loss.
The product contains chromium in the form of a chelate (chromium picolinate), guaranteeing better assimilability and bioavailability of this microelement which is necessary for your health. Chromium picolinate is a complex comprised of trivalent chromium and picolinic acid.
The preparation contains also an extract from cinnamonum cassia, providing a unique set of biocative substances that regulates blood glucose levels.
Chromium – a mineral essential to life (microelement), present in active sites of different enzymes where it is also involved in the metabolism of fat and carbohydrates. Chromium is important to people with disorders related to unstable blood glucose levels and its deficiency decreases the sensitivity of cells to insulin activity. It causes also a decrease in the immune system and efficiency of the organism, disturbs the appetite control mechanisms and may be a factor leading to the occurence of type 2 diabetes.
This element in the right amount facilitates the permeability of glucose from blood to cells and reduces insulin requirements, interacting with it in many metabolic processes, including the protein synthesis. It is because chromium is a part of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) – a substance released in the liver during the increase of glucose or insulin concentration, enabling the permeability of glucose, aminoacids, fatty acids into cells as well as accelerating its metabolism.
In addition, chromium reduces the amount of total cholesterol and its LDL fraction (so-called bad cholesterol), simultaneously increasing HDL concentration (so-called good cholesterol) and it therefore minimises the risk of heart attack and prevents the development of arteriosclerosis.
Cinammon – a popular spice derived from dry bark of the cinammon tree with antiseptic (disinfecting), antifungal, antibacterial, antivirus and anti-inflammatory properties. Cinammon may decrease glucose levels in the organism because it improves capacity for processing glucose and insulin. It has been observed in the research that cinammon had a positive effect on the insulin sensitivity, helped to decrease blood sugar levels and caused a significant drop in body fat among diabetics.
Morever, it reduces cholesterol levels and minimises the risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Cinammon is not only a well-known spice, but first and foremost a source of active ingredients showing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory potential. Its use improves a blood lipid profile, reduces glucose levels, affects the reduction of body fat, insulin balance and increase in muscle mass – intensifies the transport of nutrients (glucose, creatine, aminoacids) into muscle cells.
To sum up, Puritan’s Pride Blood Sugar Specifics is a dietary supplement intended primarily for athletes (promotes the reduction of body fat, stimulates anabolic processes), diabetics, prediabetics and other people with disorders related to glucose-insulin imbalance (reduces blood sugar levels, improves the insulin sensitivity), for people with cardiovascular diseases (decreases cholesterol levels, restores the right LDL: HDL ratio, prevents artheriosclerosis and heart diseases) and for every person within the framework of preventive healthcare in order to maintain full health of the organism.
