nutraMetrix Advanced Level 90 is a combination of vitamins, trace minerals and herbs that help maintain healthy blood sugar levels and promotes optimal uptake and use of blood glucose.
Maintaining healthy, normal blood sugar levels is important to overall health because of the negative impact that high blood sugar levels can cause on the body. Blood sugar levels are
determined by how many carbohydrates are ingested, how rapidly the body breaks down carbohydrates into simple sugars and absorbs these sugars into the bloodstream, and how rapidly
cells uptake the sugar from the blood. nutraMetrix Advanced Level 90 helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels that are not too high or too low.
Promotes healthy blood sugar levels
May help promote the normal release and activity of insulin
Supports a strong immune system
Promotes weight loss
Reduces sugar craving
Supports healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels
Promotes cellular health in peripheral nerves and cardiovascular system
Glucomannan is a soluble, dietary fiber shown to promote healthy blood sugar levels by delaying stomach emptying and promoting a gradual absorption of blood sugar from the intestines.
Glucomannan is also known for supporting healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels while promoting weight loss.
Alpha-lipoic acid, found in the mitochondria, is an energy producer found within cells. Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant. Alpha-lipoic acid has been shown to increase insulin
sensitivity. Alpha-lipoic acid promotes the production of energy fat and sugar, which aids in the elimination of glucose from the blood and helps regulate healthy insulin function. Alpha-lipoic
acid supports healthy glucose uptake by the muscles and assists in normal glucose oxidation.
Gymnema is used as a medicine plant for hyperglycemia in India. The leaves of Gymnema suppress glucose absorption and help with reducing sugar cravings. Gymnema has been known
to support healthy blood sugar levels. There have been several studies on gymnema and the effects it has on blood sugar levels. The results have shown the Gymnema supports healthy
blood sugar levels.
Ginsengs are part of a group of adaptogenic herbs from the plant family Araliacae. "Ginseng," means "essence of the earth in the form of a man". "Seng" is a term employed by Chinese
medicinal root gatherers for fleshy roots used as tonics. American ginseng grows in shady woodlands with rich soils. It is native to Ohio and found mostly in the Appalachian region of the
state. Its range outside of Ohio extends into the eastern half of the United States, from Quebec to Minnesota, and south to Georgia and Oklahoma.
Ginseng is helpful in maintaining normal blood glucose levels. Ginseng is also believed to possess outstanding healing properties, increase wisdom, longevity and even cure neurological
disorders. Ginseng is an adaptogen, which helps the body quickly restore proper balance, slow the effects of aging and fight fatigue. It has been used to maintain good cardiovascular
health. By acting as an adaptogen it aids the body in directly dealing with the effects of mental and physical stress. Ginseng is used to enhance physical (including sexual) and mental
performance, and to increase energy and resistance to the harmful effects of stress and aging. In traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng is a tonic used to increase strength, increase blood
volume, promote life and appetite, quiet the spirit, and provide wisdom. Ginseng was used in assisting with memory, improving cognitive and gastrointestinal function. Ginsengs promote
Yang energy, improve circulation, enhance the immune system, increase blood supply, revitalize and assist recovery from weakness after illness.
Artichokes, nuts, beans, whole grains and shellfish are the main sources of magnesium. Sixty percent of the body’s magnesium resides in the bones. Magnesium operates as a co-enzyme
for optimal nervous system functioning, to support the regulation of body temperature, energy metabolism, DNA and RNA synthesis, and the formation of bones. Magnesium works
alongside B-vitamins in the production of energy. It conducts nerve impulses and helps maintain a healthy heart. It plays a part in protein synthesis, which is necessary in muscle
development. Plus, studies point to a potential role for magnesium supplements in energy metabolism efficiency in endurance athletes. Magnesium is also well known for its role in
supporting-bone building properties, working in conjunction with calcium.*
Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafood, including oysters. It is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins. It is also involved in the
regulation of gene expression. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that has functions in 300 different enzymes. Zinc plays a part in almost all biochemical pathways and physiological
processes. More than 90 percent of the body’s zinc is stored in the bones (30 percent) and muscles (60 percent), but zinc is also found in virtually all body tissues. Zinc also plays a role in
wound healing, immune system support, promotes a healthy prostate gland and enhances fertility enhancement by means of sperm production in males. Because zinc is involved in a great
number of enzymatic processes it has been found to positively affect a large range of bodily functions including digestion, energy production, growth, cellular repair, collagen synthesis,
bone strength, cognitive function, and carbohydrate metabolism (glucose utilization and insulin production).
Chromium is found naturally in some cereals, meats, poultry, brewer’s yeast, broccoli, prunes, mushrooms, fish and beer. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that plays an important
role in glucose metabolism, supporting healthy insulin levels, and maintaining healthy blood levels of cholesterol and other fats. It may also help with appetite control. Chromium has been
shown to support healthy blood sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels as it increases insulin sensitivity and to aid in weight loss. Chromium can contribute to an increase in lean body
and muscle mass.
Vanadium is found naturally in seafood, mushrooms, some cereals and soybeans. Vanadium a trace mineral is known for being effective in supporting healthy blood glucose levels.
Vanadium increases muscle mass, blood flow, glycogen synthesis and storage, while mimicking insulin activity.
Biotin is naturally found in egg yolks, peanuts, beef liver, milk (10 mcg/cup), cereals, almonds and Brewer’s yeast. Biotin is known to promote healthy blood sugar levels. It also helps to
strengthen hair and nails, increase energy levels and promote normal cholesterol levels.
