Diabenil is a unique blend of botanicals and nutrients designed to help maintain already normal blood sugar levels.* In addition, it contains important antioxidants and flavonoids to protect sensitive tissues of the body.*
Gymnema sylvestre, a plant native to India, has been used medicinally for over 2,000 years. Its effect on supporting blood glucose levels has been widely studied since the 1930s.* It has been found to support already normal blood sugar levels in human studies.* It also can help to maintain already normal cholesterol and triglyceride levels.*
Momordica charantia (bitter melon) is an herb commonly found in China, India, and Africa. Its active ingredients include charantin and a substance known as p-insulin (plant insulin), which resembles bovine insulin in structure and function. These components appear to both enhance glucose utilization and depress glucose synthesis in the liver.*
Vaccinium myrtillus (bilberry) contains important anthocyanoside flavonoids that appear to have a particular affinity and support for ocular tissue, particularly the retina.* These flavonoids strengthen blood vessels and help stabilize collagen, maintaining healthy connective tissues.*
Quercetin, in addition to its collagen-stabilizing effects, inhibits an enzyme that converts glucose to sorbitol.* Once formed, sorbitol can accumulate in the lens of the eye, kidneys, and nerves of the extremities.
Lipoic acid is a potent antioxidant in both water- and fat-soluble mediums that can significantly reduce lipid peroxidation of nerve tissue.* It has also been found to inhibit an enzyme that results in a decrease in the production of sorbitol.*
UltraChrome and vanadyl sulfate are included in Diabenil to help maintain already normal hemoglobin A1C levels.*
