Maintaining Blood Sugar

Maintaining Blood Sugar

Glucose management, or maintaining healthy blood sugar levels both while fasting and after meals, is vital to lasting health. Blood sugar health involves gluconeogenesis, or sugar production in the liver, as well as the conversion of starch (such as ingested grain) into glucose. Healthy glucose elimination is also important to maintaining healthy glucose levels.

Glucose Management / Blood Sugar Information & Research

1.
How can you maintain healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range?

Consuming a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight and engaging in regular physical activity supports already-healthy blood sugar levels. For added support, maqui berry extract, clove extract, white mulberry leaf extract, extracts of the brown seaweeds Ascophyllum nodosum and Fucus vesiculosus, and benfotiamine (a form of vitamin B1) help support already-normal glucose levels. Green tea, which contains the compound EGCG, and bilberry may also help.

2.
Which supplements help you manage glucose?

Extracts of maqui berry, cloves, green tea, bilberry, cinnamon, curcumin, brown seaweed, white mulberry leaf, sorghum, Ginkgo biloba, Irvingia gabonensis, amla and shilajit, the minerals magnesium, chromium and iodine, omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, the polyphenol resveratrol, the five-carbon sugar L-arabinose and the fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 known as benfotiamine are all available as supplements to help maintain already-healthy glucose levels. Supplements that activate AMPK, such as an extract of the herb Gynostemma pentaphyllum, lipoic acid, the flavonoid hesperidin and green coffee beans also help support normal glucose levels.
