A scientifically advanced formula takes advantage of a long list of nutrients that are reported to support normal glucose regulation. Those with concerns with sugar imbalance often choose Vana- Chrom.

When is Blood Sugar Support helpful? Blood sugar imbalances

Clinical Applications Research:

Thiamine (as hydrochloride) (B-1) has a Co-enzyme form as thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP). Riboflavin (B-2) is the component of two major energy enzymes - flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), and Niacin (as niacinamide)(B-3) functions in over fifty metabolic reactions. The B Vitamins are involved in all aspects of glucose (blood sugar) metabolism. Vitamin B-6 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride) is also important in glucose metabolism. Vitamin B-12 (as cyanocobalamin) is an integral vitamin for the metabolism of carbohydrate, protein and fat. Proper DNA replication is dependent on the function of Co-enzyme B-12. Biotin is involved in reactions specific for release of energy from carbohydrates.

Magnesium (as aspartate) is a cofactor for the reactions that metabolize carbohydrate in the Kreb's cycle, and is also needed for ATP (energy production). All reactions using vitamin B-1 are dependent on magnesium.

Zinc (as picolinate) is important in normal insulin function - synthesis, secretion, and utilization (Free Rad in Res and Comm 1991; 14:289-96). Zinc deficiency is suspected as having a possible role in the development of diabetes (AJCN 1987; 45:877-895). Zinc supplements have helped in the healing of resistant leg ulcers in diabetics (Diabetes. A dietary approach. 1992; 3:1-2).

Manganese (as aspartate) is a cofactor for many carbohydrate metabolism enzymes.

Chromium (as picolinate): Chromium is known for its effects on blood sugar control mechanisms (Mertz, W. Chromium in human nutrition: a review. J Nutr 1993; 123:626-633). It most likely exerts these effects because of its important role in making up the GTF (glucose tolerance factor) of the body.

Vanadyl Sulfate: The functions of vanadium are still being researched. It appears that vanadium is very important for its role in glucose metabolism (mimics insulin), and its role in lipid metabolism. Recent research indicates that vanadium was able to partially preserve pancreatic beta-cells in rats, and that this preservation was, “both critical and sufficient for a long-term reversal of the diabetic state” (Cam MC et al. Partial preservation of pancreatic beta-cells by vanadium: evidence for long-term amelioration of diabetes (Metabolism 1997; 46:769-778).
