Natural Factors WellBetX Berberine 500 mg If you’re working on maintaining your blood sugar or cholesterol levels, you need to know about an enzyme called AMPK – your body’s metabolic master switch. When this switch is activated, you supercharge your body’s ability to metabolize blood sugar and cholesterol. How can you “turn on” this switch? One way is with berberine, a plant alkaloid found in goldenseal and Oregon grape root. Our berberine is sustainably sourced from barberry and provides a clinically studied amount of 500 mg per vegetarian capsule, so you reap all the berberine benefits. Benefits Supports blood sugar balance Helps support healthy cholesterol levels Helps maintain cardiovascular health Feature Summary Blood glucose (sugar) management is a key part of maintaining a healthy body, yet millions of Canadians struggle with ailments related to poorly controlled blood sugar and insulin levels. The unique ways in which WellBetX Berberine acts on the body makes it a useful natural option for improving blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol levels. Berberine is a naturally occurring compound extracted from the roots of various plants, including barberry, goldenseal, and Oregon grape, and is likely responsible for the beneficial effects of traditional tonics made from these plants. Modern evidence shows berberine works to restore the insulin sensitivity needed to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and promotes cardiovascular health by helping to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol in people with poorly controlled blood sugar. Every vegetarian capsule provides 500 mg of pure berberine, the same concentration used successfully in clinical trials to enhance insulin sensitivity and prompt a hypoglycemic effect that supports weight management. By lowering blood sugar berberine minimizes the body’s production of insulin, the fat-storing hormone. All WellBetX products are made with the highest quality ingredients. They provide essential nutritional support designed to balance blood sugar and promote cardiovascular health when paired with a nutritious diet and physical activity. Medicinal ingredients Each capsule contains: Berberine (hydrochloride) (Berberis vulgaris) (root) 500 mg Non-medicinal Ingredients Vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant), silica, stearic acid. Recommended use Berberine is a naturally occurring plant alkaloid found in various plants, including barberry, goldenseal, and Oregon grape.  Many herbalists credit this unique alkaloid for the beneficial effects of many traditional tonics made from these plants.  Berberine plays a role in blood sugar (glucose) metabolism, and helps support healthy blood sugar balance.  Berberine also helps maintain healthy blood lipid levels and cardiovascular health.

Help maintain healthy glucose metabolism and cardiovascular health BERBERINE FOR GLUCOSE METABOLISM AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH A placebo-controlled study provided the first evidence that berberine is a valuable supplement for diabetes and cardiovascular health. Berberine was shown to lower blood glucose, HbA1c (the best measure of long term blood sugar and diabetes control), triglycerides, total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol significantly better than a placebo in people with type 2 diabetes.When type 2 diabetics were given either berberine or the diabetes drug metformin, the berberine was equally effective for blood glucose, HbA1c and insulin. Berberine had an advantage over the drug, though, because it also lowered cholesterol and triglycerides. The study also found that adding the same dose of berberine to the treatment of people whose type 2 diabetes was not being adequately managed by drugs significantly lowered blood glucose, HbA1c, triglycerides, total cholesterol and the harmful LDL cholesterol.A third study compared berberine to two drugs: metformin and rosiglitazone. Berberine’s effectiveness was similar to the drugs. It significantly lowered fasting blood glucose levels, insulin, triglycerides and HbA1c in type 2 diabetics. In vitro, berberine increased the number and responsiveness of insulin receptor cells.A meta-analysis of 27 controlled studies found that berberine was as effective as drugs for diabetes, equal to drugs for lowering total and LDL cholesterol and superior to drugs for lowering triglycerides and raising the heart healthy HDL cholesterol. It also found that berberine is superior to placebo for high blood pressure.Berberine has also been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of arrhythmias and heart failure. Adding berberine to conventional treatment of congestive heart failure has been shown to significantly improve the results and significantly lower the number of deaths.

New Roots Blood Sugar Balance Blood Sugar Balance is a comprehensive and holistic approach to the restoration and maintenance of normal blood glucose. It addresses the primary concerns associated with maintaining healthy blood-sugar control. The nutrients in Blood Sugar Balance work from several different perspectives; they exert an insulin-like effect, improve insulin sensitivity, and support healthy nerves from free-radical damage associated with unregulated blood-sugar levels. Diabetes can lead to complications such as neuropathy, retinopathy, renal problems, high cholesterol, and hypertension. Blood Sugar Balance harnesses cutting-edge nutraceuticals for natural blood-glucose management integral to good health. According to Diabetes Canada, one in three Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes. The staggering statistic is that 90% of cases are type 2 diabetes, which is related to impaired insulin production or poor insulin receptivity. The good news is that lifestyle changes such as eating more whole foods, reducing sugar intake (this includes reading labels for hidden sugars), and leading a more active lifestyle can lessen type 2 severity. Many people do not realize they have blood-sugar-control concerns, nor do they seek medical advice until it has progressed to a serious stage. Early signs include frequent urination, excessive thirst, and excessive appetite; these symptoms should not be ignored. Genetics can also lead to diabetes, so an awareness of your family medical history can help in addition to adopting a healthy lifestyle. Blood Sugar Balance can also prove to be an ally for getting the most out of life while living with diabetes. DIRECTIONS OF USE Adults: Take 1 capsule daily with food or as directed by your health-care practitioner. Duration of use: Consult a health-care practitioner for use beyond 3 months.

Healthy glucose metabolism   Natural Factors Chromium Picolinate enhances the action of insulin, metabolizes glucose, and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels. As most North Americans are at risk of chromium deficiency, supplementing with easily absorbed chromium picolinate ensures adequate levels of chromium, maintains healthy blood sugar balance, and reduces food cravings.   Uses & Benefits Improves blood sugar control Helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and fats Helps prevent chromium deficiency Helps reduce carbohydrate cravings May reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels   Feature Summary Chromium is an essential mineral for enhancing the action of insulin, metabolizing sugar (glucose), and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Although it is naturally present in food in trace amounts, the majority of North Americans do not get enough chromium in their diet and are at risk of gradually developing a deficiency. Elevated cortisol levels caused by stress can also deplete the body’s chromium. Chromium deficiency can lead to elevated levels of blood sugar and insulin. Chromium supplements have been shown to improve blood sugar balance in people with glucose intolerance, and can reduce food cravings and improve appetite regulation. Chromium may also be useful in managing reactive hypoglycemia, a condition where blood sugar falls below normal after eating. Inadequate chromium intake is linked to increased levels of low density (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides, and decreased levels of high density (good) cholesterol, factors that heighten the risk of cardiovascular disease. Chromium picolinate is the form of chromium most easily absorbed by the body, which is why it is often used in clinical trials. Easily absorbed Natural Factors Chromium Picolinate is an effective way to obtain your daily requirement of this essential mineral.

Provides support for healthy glucose metabolism   Natural Factors Chromium GTF Chelate is naturally derived from yeast and is highly absorbable. A mineral that is required by the body in small amounts, chromium is essential for metabolic processes that regulate blood sugar, and helps insulin transport glucose into cells, where it can be used for energy.   Uses & Benefits Balances blood glucose levels Helps curb sugar cravings May aid in the maintenance of healthy weight Feature Summary Chromium is a mineral that is required by the body in small amounts. As it forms a part of a compound in the body known as Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF), chromium is essential for metabolic processes that regulate blood sugar, and helps insulin transport glucose into cells, where it can be used for energy. Chromium maintains stable blood sugar levels through proper insulin utilization and therefore helps maintain normal metabolism and proper weight. As it enhances the action of insulin, chromium is necessary for storage of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. It is needed for energy production and is also vital in the synthesis of cholesterol, fats, and proteins. Inadequate intake of chromium has been linked to glucose intolerance. Natural Factors Chromium GTF Chelate is a very easily absorbed form of chromium, naturally derived from yeast in the safe trivalent form. GTF chromium is naturally bound to glycine, glutamic acid, cysteine, and niacin. Each tablet contains 500 mcg of chromium, to be taken once daily, and is free from artificial colours, preservatives, sweeteners, soy, yeast, and wheat.

  The hypoglycemic Ayurvedic herb Helps suppress sugar cravings naturally Promotes cardiovascular health Helps maintain normal insulin levels Supports healthy glucose metabolism Gymnema sylvestre is a woody branched vine growing in the wild forests of Central and South India. The plant has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries for many different conditions, but is mainly known for enhancing blood sugar metabolism. It does this by reducing glucose absorption from the intestines and increasing peripheral insulin sensitivity, and some evidence even suggests that it may support the body’s ability to produce its own insulin by helping to repair the cells in the pancreas that make it. Clinical trials have found that gymnema can lower blood glucose and decrease the need for insulin in both insulin-dependent (type 1) and insulin-independent (type 2) diabetes. Balancing blood sugar will help not only to manage diabetes but also to reduce weight gain. When used as a mouthwash, gymnema inhibits the sensation of sweetness by interfering with the tongue’s sugar receptors. Gymnema has been found to lower blood lipids in diabetic subjects and it also inhibits the growth of Candida albicans, an opportunistic fungus that is known to cause a wide array of health issues. AOR Advantage AOR’s Gymnema-75 is an evidence-based, high dose extract of Gymnema sylvestre. Those looking for a natural support for blood sugar management and candida control will benefit from supplementing with this ancient Indian herb.

As you breathe in oxygen, your cells produce energy and form highly reactive molecules called free radicals and oxidative stress occurs. When we don’t have enough antioxidants (molecules that neutralize free radicals) in our bodies that we get from certain vitamins and minerals, free radicals can go on to damage vital cells and leave the door open to start many debilitating diseases. Blood Sugar Support contains 200 milligrams of the potent antioxidant DL-Alpha lipoic acid and and 75 milligrams of grape seed extract to help fight against free radicals and relieve symptoms of swelling in the lower legs related to non-complicated chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Another concern diabetics have to be vigilant of is Insulin resistance. Having too much blood glucose in your system puts insulin production into overdrive and before you know it, you’re insulin resistant – your cells no longer roll out the welcome mat when insulin tries to escort some friendly carbohydrate energy inside. Ingredients like gymnema extract, Chinese cassia cinnamon, fenugreek, and chromium in Blood Sugar Support tag team to help maintain healthy blood glucose level. Let Blood Sugar Support help get your blood glucose levels back on track. There’s nothing sweeter than living the balanced life you want.

New Roots Herbals New Roots Chromiu... $24.00
The benefits of our Chromium Picolinate include weight loss, lowered serum cholesterol and glucose, increased burning of fat, and muscle growth.   Chromium picolinate is a patented version of the trace element chromium, chemically bound to picolinic acid. The body produces picolinic acid as a mechanism to improve the assimilation of trace minerals at the cellular level. Fully reacted chromium in picolinate form saves the body a metabolic step and improves the rate of absorption. Studies have shown chromium picolinate supplementation to improve metabolism as well as to lower blood serum cholesterol and glucose levels. Chromium enhances the ability of insulin to lower serum glucose levels; this has a favourable effect on the development of coronary heart disease, as diabetes is a major risk factor. Athletes that train extensively should also consider supplementation, as excessive excretion through perspiration can lead to a deficiency. DIRECTIONS OF USE Adults: Take 1 capsule daily with food or as directed by your health-care practitioner. Duration of use: Consult a health-care practitioner for use beyond 6 months.

Healthy glucose metabolism   Natural Factors Chromium Picolinate enhances the action of insulin, metabolizes glucose, and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels. As most North Americans are at risk of chromium deficiency, supplementing with easily absorbed chromium picolinate ensures adequate levels of chromium, maintains healthy blood sugar balance, and reduces food cravings.   Uses & Benefits       Improves blood sugar control Helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and fats Helps prevent chromium deficiency Helps reduce carbohydrate cravings May reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels   Feature Summary Chromium is an essential mineral for enhancing the action of insulin, metabolizing sugar (glucose), and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Although it is naturally present in food in trace amounts, the majority of North Americans do not get enough chromium in their diet and are at risk of gradually developing a deficiency. Elevated cortisol levels caused by stress can also deplete the bodys chromium. Chromium deficiency can lead to elevated levels of blood sugar and insulin.Chromium supplements have been shown to improve blood sugar balance in people with glucose intolerance, and can reduce food cravings and improve appetite regulation. Chromium may also be useful in managing reactive hypoglycemia, a condition where blood sugar falls below normal after eating. Inadequate chromium intake is linked to increased levels of low density (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides, and decreased levels of high density (good) cholesterol, factors that heighten the risk of cardiovascular disease. Chromium picolinate is the form of chromium most easily absorbed by the body, which is why it is often used in clinical trials. Easily absorbed Natural Factors Chromium Picolinate is an effective way to obtain your daily requirement of this essential mineral.

Trophic Trophic Chromium ... $23.00
Trophic’s patented Albion Chromium plus Vanadium, chelated with natural amino acids, provides superior biological activity or bioavailability and absorption. Chromium plays a critical role in the human system’s Glucose Tolerance Factor (GFT) structure and is thus directly implicated in the balancing of blood sugar. Chromium is also required for energy production and the synthesis of cholesterol, protein and fat. Vanadium is required for cellular metabolism and the formation of strong bones and teeth. The addition of co-factors – Vitamin C, niacinamide, niacin and Vitamin B6 – provide all the raw materials necessary to increase the body’s production of the GTF structure and act as synergistic “catalysts,” enhancing the action of the two main minerals. Helps balance blood sugar levels Promotes the loss of fat and an increase in lean muscle tissue Increase blood levels of HDL (the “good” cholesterol) 200 mcg Chromium (Chromic Bisglycinate) 75 mcg Vanadium (Vanadyl Sulphate) Added Vitamin C (200 mg), niacinamide (40 mg), niacin (20 mg) and Vitamin B6 (20 mg) Take one caplet daily or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner Contains Niacin, which may cause harmless and transient flushing and itching No added yeast, wheat, soy, gluten, corn, dairy, artificial colors, preservatives or animal products INGREDIENTS: EACH CAPLET CONTAINS Medicinal Ingredients:Chromium (Chromic Bisglycinate)* ……. 200 mcgVanadium (Vanadyl Sulphate) ……………. 75 mcgVitamin C …………………. 200 mgNiacinamide …………………. 40 mgNiacin …………………. 20 mgVitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) …….. 20 mg Non-Medicinal Ingredients:Microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate.
