DiabetNat - 45 Capsules
Diabetes mellitus is a disease characterized by excess glucose in the blood (hyperglycemia).
In type 1 diabetes, pancreatic cells producing insulin (hormone which helps glucose enter cells) are destroyed.
Type 2 diabetes, the most common in adults may result from insufficient production of insulin or the difficulty of the cells in glucose uptake (insulin resistance). This type of diabetes has a strong connection with obesity.
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most serious problems of public health importance because of its complications (damage to blood vessels, retinopathy, blindness, cardiovascular problems, decreased sensation in the lower limbs, diabetic foot, increased susceptibility to infections, greater difficulty in wound healing, impotence, kidney failure). Thus, it becomes essential to prevention and control of this disease.
The DiabetNat is a dietary supplement particularly useful in cases of type 2 diabetes and obesity. It comprises Borage (Borago officinalis), Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa), Green Tea (Camellia sinensis), chromium picolinate, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C) and DL-a-tocopherol (Vitamin E).
Borage (Borago officinalis)
It is a medicinal plant with hypoglycemic action, i.e. contributes to reducing the amount of glucose in the bloodstream. This justifies its high importance for diabetes.lt also has other properties of particular interest to this disease since it may be useful in development of complications which are characteristics.
It is tonic, with efficacy in states of general debility. Exerts an anti-inflammatory effect and is useful for problems in the airways, urinary tract (kidney and bladder inflammation), heart and liver (liver cirrhosis, gallstones). It may also be used in gout and rheumatic diseases.This plant has depurative activity, ie, has the capacity to purify the blood. lt diuretic, contributing to the alleviation of edema, especially in the legs.
Borago officinalis is extremely rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (oleic, linoleic, palmitic, stearic, among others). These compounds provide an important protection against cardiovascular disease. It can also be used to treat various problems and soothe the skin (eczema, rubella, measles, freckles, varicella, wrinkles). It emollient and improves the strength of the epidermis. This plant is also antidiarrhetic, soothing and slightly sudorffera. Can be used in states of nervousness.
Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa)
The extract contains Banaba corosolic acid, a compound that stimulates the transport of glucose from the blood into the cells of the organism. As such, it is important for the regulation of blood glucose levels.
Studies have shown that this plant has the capacity to promote transport and reabsorption of glucose at the cellular level (similar to the action of insulin). The corosolic acid exerts a hypoglycemic effect, acting by inhibiting gluconeogenesis (synthesis of new glucose molecules) and stimulation of glycolysis (breakdown of glucose) in the liver. Also maintains normal insulin levels and controls the appetite, promoting weight loss. The effect is similar to that of insulin, without synergistic action. The extract of Banaba has also other compounds that potentiate its hypoglycemic activity.
Green Tea (Camellia sinensis)
Green tea has immense therapeutic properties. According to studies, has a strong antioxidant action, by its content in flavonoids.
Contributes to the prevention of premature aging and of many diseases, particularly various types of cancer (especially in the intestine, esophagus, lung and skin).
Another significant action is well documented and this plant is its role in effective adjuvant regimens slimming and anti- cellulite. It lipolytic has the ability to eliminate fats. Its efficacy in hypercholesterolemia by reducing blood cholesterol levels.
The flavonoids and proanthocyanidins contained in this plant allow it to be cardiotonic and venotonica. Strengthens the heart and blood vessels and is useful in preventing cardiovascular problems.
Green tea is also a diuretic, antibacterial, astringent, immunostimulant, antiplatelet, anti-diarrheal, digestive and carminative (helps eliminate intestinal gas). Xanticas bases, especially caffeine, gives it properties nervous system stimulants, being useful against fatigue.
This plant prevents the formation of gallstones and kidney and has a bronchodilating action, allowing its use in the management of asthma. Holds hypoglycemic properties, i.e., contributes to reducing the levels of blood glucose and inhibits transformation of fat. This is especially advantageous in obesity.
The chromium is a mineral essential to human nutrition plays a key role in glucose metabolism, being very important for the production of insulin (hormone which transfers the glucose from the blood into the cells where it is used as an energy source).
The chromium picolinate is the best source of chromium, as is the way the body absorbs better. There are several ben- efits. Having regard studies, helps the body to utilize insulin more effectively, contributing to the maintenance of normal glucose levels in the blood. Improves reception of glucose by cells, increasing cellular energy. Promotes a reduction in body fat levels. Facilitates the removal of grease is hypocholesterolemic and promotes weight loss by reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis).
Also participates in the formation of muscle mass, increasing muscle definition.
The chromium picolinate is especially suitable for people who consume large quantities of sugar, appetite for the consumption of foods rich in carbohydrates (particularly sweets), since this compound helps to reduce the same ease.
The presence of adequate levels of chromium is particularly useful in obesity control and prevention of Type 2 diabetes, which have insulin resistance.
Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C protects against many diseases because it strengthens the immune system and has an antioxidant action, including diabetes. This vitamin contributes to the strengthening of blood vessels by increasing its elasticity and strength.
It also has a regenerative effect on vascular walls. As a result there is an improvement in blood flow to the extremities. This becomes particularly important for diabetic, taking into account the adjacent vascular complications of diabetes (retinopathy, impaired blood flow and decreased sensitivity of the members, cardiovascular disorders, lesions in blood vessels).
Vitamin C also helps to maintain the health of blood vessels, skin, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, bones, teeth, gums and joints through their participation in the synthesis of collagen. Fosters the healing process, which in diabetic patients is difficult. It also antihypertensive, antiviral, antihistamine and Protective vision and airways.
This vitamin works synergistically with vitamin E to eliminate free radicals, since regenerates the antioxidant potential of the same.
DL-a-tocopherol (Vitamin E)
Vitamin E exerts a very strong antioxidant, providing protection to all cells.
Thus, it plays a role in the prevention of many diseases.
Protects against cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
Prevents the development of cardiovascular diseases, since it reduces levels of "bad" cholesterol (LDL-cholesterol) in the blood and prevents the formation of blood clots.
Contributes also to the health of the skin. Delaying aging, stimulates the healing process and protects against injuries caused by ultraviolet radiation (UV).
Not recommended for use during pregnancy and lactation.
