Essential Nutrients To Help Prevent And Control Type 2 Diabetes

The Foodstate Company Glucose Control Formula: Our 100% Foodstate multi-nutrient has been created from significant research to offer optimum support to Type 2 sufferers or those at risk

There are 2 Minerals that deserve particular mention:

  1. Magnesium: Magnesium is involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions in your body, and deficiency can contribute to significant health problems. Two common health consequences of Magnesium deficiency are Type 2 diabetes and heart disease

Low magnesium levels have been linked to insulin resistance, a precursor to Type 2 diabetes, as it impairs your body’s ability to regulate blood sugar, which is important for the prevention of Type 2 diabetes. Low Magnesium levels are associated with high blood pressure and diabetes, both of which contribute to heart disease

  1. GTF Chromium: GTF stands for Glucose Tolerance Factor, and as well as helping the body regulate blood sugar levels it also helps to metabolise carbohydrates, fats and protein as it enhances the action of insulin, the body’s fat storage hormone. Our Foodstate Chromium is made from a species of broccoli that has been hydroponically grown in a chromium rich environment. As such it is a wholefood form of the mineral with high bio-availability
