Today, we find blood sugar disorders in more people than ever before, and at ever-younger ages. The concept is no longer apropos that only indulgent, over-sweetened, aging adults develop blood sugar disorders. And the problem has spread world-wide, to Jordan, India, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, South Africa and even Afghanistan to name a few of the countries afflicted.
As the epidemic expands, we find ourselves with 366 million diabetics worldwide at the end of 2011, and an annual death count of 4.6 million. The economic costs are astounding at an estimated 465 billion dollars per year. These are the latest Diabetes Atlas figures from the International Diabetes Federation (IDF).
The period prior to, through and immediately after World War II saw tremendous advances in chemical medicine, in agricultural science and, quite significantly, in food processing. New technologies helped deliver the necessary C-Rations and K-Rations foods to millions of soldiers fighting across the globe. After the war, the new technologies were re-deployed against the consuming public at home.
It is legitimate to propose that the incidence of blood sugar disorders in the form of diabetes and hypoglycemia is accelerating because adults and children of today have been raised on post World War II diets that are too dependent on processed foods and too deficient, therefore, in trace nutrients. Most significantly, minerals in particular and phytochemicals we are only recently coming to understand, have been lost during the growing, washing, storing, hulling, drying, grinding, roasting, freezing, boiling, pressing, gassing, rolling and frying of our modern, convenience foods. Science has identified specific roles for many of those lost nutrients in the regulation of normal blood sugar.
Diet & Supplements
Attempts at holistic control of blood sugar disorders and protection against their complications can be made on several fronts. Exercise and weight reduction are of paramount importance in the battle to re-establish normal blood sugar control. A whole foods diet is certainly mandatory. An organic, virtually grain and starch free diet that seeks to maximize trace nutrient content is ideal. Including sea vegetables liberally would be one way to assure continued presence of trace minerals key to balancing blood sugar.
Dietary supplements ranging from simple but highly nutritious yeast through multiple vitamin and mineral tablets to specialized, sophisticated formulas could help body systems reorient themselves toward normal operation. These supplements and lifestyle changes could do much to lower elevated insulin and/or blood sugar levels, or raise lagging blood sugar.
Given that we cannot expect a universal and instant awakening to the dangers of the modern diet, we must find other means to combat its ill effects.
A five-point holistic approach:
Diet can be modified to reduce the amount of glucose-producing foods (i.e. starches and sugars.)
The inflow of glucose can be inhibited by high fiber diets rich in protein and adequate in fat. All three macro-nutrients, protein, fat and fiber, are known to delay conversion of starch to glucose by the intestinal lining and to delay sugar absorption from the gut.
We can suppress endogenous (inside the body) glucose production by the liver with supplements rich in caffeic and chlorogenic acids like blueberry leaf extract and blueberry leaf tea.
We can stimulate intracellular (inside the cell) glucose metabolism with substances such as cinnamon and caffeic acid, found widely in plants.
We can enhance the ability of insulin to stimulate glucose transporting proteins (GTPs) through supplementation with trace minerals and corosolic acid.
We believe specialized supplements should include specific dietary fibers, trace nutrients, new bioactive botanical extracts, and key trace minerals known to normalize secretion of insulin and metabolism of blood glucose. For example, vanadium, chromium, zinc, manganese and copper are known to help, with vanadium and chromium alleged to mimic insulin’s action in opening cell membranes to the entry of glucose. Caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid plus certain fibers, all of which can be concentrated in standardized botanical extracts, inhibit absorption of glucose from the intestine. Caffeic acid and other phytochemicals additionally enhance glucose metabolism within cells. These are some examples of the synergism that can be found within Glycemic Vibrance H, a formula designed to help restore missing nutrients required for normal blood sugar and to correct the biochemical confusion that leads to blood sugar disorders.
Glycemic Vibrance H is intended to mark the path to a more holistic approach to blood sugar control. Nutrients in Glycemic Vibrance H have been selected for their role in supporting normal insulin uptake at the cellular level by providing a correct balance of nutrients associated with normal glucose metabolism within cells. Other ingredients inhibit the conversion of dietary carbohydrate to blood sugar at the border of the intestinal lining to help maintain normal blood sugar levels.
Antioxidant supplements can reduce peroxidation and improve overall antioxidant status, helping raise levels of cellular antioxidant enzymes normally suppressed by elevated blood sugar. Some key antioxidants identified by science with application in protecting against the effects of elevated blood sugar are in Glycemic Vibrance H.
Additional antioxidant formulas are also available. They include Green Vibrance, Super Natural C, Rainbow Vibrance and CranMax. All supplements targeted for blood sugar management are most effective as part of a well designed whole food diet low in grain and starch, combined with exercise and a diet of multiple small meals rich in fresh vegetables and protein.
Can I take the Glycemic Vibrance with insulin?
You should discuss this with your doctor. If your doctor is okay with you taking Glycemic Vibrance with your insulin he will most likely recommend adjusting your insulin levels.
Can I use Glycemic Vibrance with any other Vibrant Health products?
Yes, Since Diabetes and Syndrome “X” can reduce antioxidant activity within the cells, Rainbow Vibrance and Green Vibrance can help improve antioxidant status. The antioxidants can protect the tissues which are sensitive to blood sugar fluctuations, ie: eye, nerve and Kidney.
About Vibrant Health
Vibrant Health is a brand for those seeking, well… vibrant health. Their promise is to design and market the most nutritionally valuable food supplements they can for the benefit of all men, women, and children. Delivering on that promise is a serious endeavor, and they work diligently toward that end for you.
Vibrant Health's products provide supplemental nutrition that supports human biochemistry. The human body carries an infinite wisdom that guides it toward optimum health in response to appropriate dietary improvements. The steady decline in trace nutrient value of their fresh foods — as evidenced in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's analyses of their food supply — has, in the opinion of Vibrant Health, established a mandate for supplemental nutrition. They believe supplemental nutrition is no longer an option, it is instead a necessity if one hopes to achieve robust and vibrant health.
In the category of green foods, their Green Vibrance was the first green superfood introduced into health food stores in 1992. Since that time, Green Vibrance has undergone twelve reformulations in order to incorporate the latest nutritional materials that will enhance the underlying rationale of Green Vibrance. They have addressed joint health in the same way, introducing Joint Vibrance in 1995. Joint Vibrance is the most comprehensive formula for the support of joint health, and includes botanical ingredients synergistic to the nutritional roles of Glucosamine, Chondroitin sulfate (CSA), MSM and hydrolyzed bovine and avian collagen.
Urinary tract health is addressed through U.T. Vibrance and U.T. Biotic. The former is a formula based on D-mannose and complementary botanical ingredients. The latter provides cranberry extract and probiotic bacteria intended to maintain the proper microbiota associated with healthy urogenital tissue. Their patented Cran-Max capsules are recommended as regular, daily supplemental nutrition for urinary tract health, yet the product may be even more valuable to vascular health. Its broad range anti-oxidant properties also make it valuable as a general nutritional supplement.
Curcuminoids from standardized turmeric extract are found in two potencies in the Vibrant Health line, 250 mg. Curcuminoid-95+ and Maximized Curcuminoids at a strength of one gram per tablet. More anti-oxidants are found in Life Preserver, their multiple antioxidant formula that goes far beyond the standard A, C, E and Zinc to incorporate alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10 plus a full range of water soluble, fat soluble, botanical and mineral antioxidants. They have yet to see any other antioxidant formula that is so complete or presents so bold a position of support for cellular health.
Vibrant Health's combination of soy phytosterols (i.e., beta-Sitosterol, Stigmasterol, Campesterol, Brassicasterol, Ergostanol, Stigmastanol, etc.) and policosanol in pleasant, chewable Enhanced Cholesterol Blocker tablets delivers plant substances known to be effective in blocking absorption of dietary cholesterol with potential benefits to blood cholesterol levels. Glycemic Vibrance H capsules provide trace nutrients that may support normal blood sugar levels within the normal range.
Vibrant Health's quest for the plant with the greatest biomass of sulfated polysaccharides led us to red marine algae of the family Gigartinaceae. Several of these Gigartina red marine algae have shown themselves to be the best sources yet discovered of sulfated polysaccharides. Vibrant Health's Gigartina Red Marine Algae combines the five strains of Gigartina shown to deliver the most sulfated polysaccharides.
A costly extract of their algae isolates the sulfated polysaccharides of Gigartina Red Marine Algae into what we call RMA extract. They then incorporate the extract into a unique ointment based on emu oil with herbs and essential oils. The result is RMA Ointment, a quiet little product with ability to soothe skin. Plants can be the source of many key nutrients. Vibrant Health has turned to them as the source for highly bioavailable trace minerals. Their newest phyto mineral is a patented calcium fructo-borate, a form of boron found in plants. The patent for the material in their Super Natural Boron confirms its ability to support normal levels of hormonal Vitamin D and testosterone. Keeping these hormones at optimal levels helps maintain bone health, as has long been known. Every mammalian species tested, in fact, has shown improved calcium retention and strengthened bone tissue under supplemental doses of boron that would equate to 3 milligrams daily in humans. Current evaluations of their food supply and eating habits place the daily dietary intake of boron from food at 1 to 1.25 mg.
50% of your body's immune cells line the intestinal tract. They're your first line of defense in your immune system. Their Immune Defense links bovine serum immunoglobulins (a more concentrated source than colostrum) with arabinogalactans, RMA extract and beta glucans into a powerful immune support formula.
Zinc is an important support nutrient for immunity too - and for many other structures and functions. Without enough of it, we can't grow, repair damaged tissue, digest food, taste food, smell anything and carry on over 380 other enzymatically controlled bodily functions. Vibrant Health thought zinc was a fine place to start building a line of mineral supplements. A Man's Zinc joins zinc arginate with soy sterols. Kreb's Zinc offers a general purpose supplement of the full Krebs complex zinc for the entire family.
