Reducing Blood Sugar with Vitamin C, Amino Diet – Endocrine Boost Supplement
We all know the old adage that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” This is true in part because apples are loaded with Vitamin C, which has powerful anti-oxidant properties.
It can aid in healing while also preventing heart disease, eye disease, skin wrinkling and many cancers. Mark Moyad, MD, MPH, of the University of Michigan, researched over 100 studies in a ten year period showing the benefits of Vitamin C:
“Vitamin C has received a great deal of attention, and with good reason,” he said. “Higher blood levels of Vitamin C may be the ideal nutrition marker for overall health. The more we study Vitamin C, the better our understanding of how diverse it is in protecting our health, from cardiovascular, cancer, stroke, eye health [and] immunity to living longer.”
There may even be more reasons to celebrate the wonders of Vitamin C: It may help lower blood glucose and regulate insulin levels in those with type 2 diabetes. The U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health (NLM, NIH) published a study that a daily supplement of 1000 mg of Vitamin C may be beneficial in lowering blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes, thereby reducing the risk of certain complications. The study also found that the same amounts of Vitamin C helped lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. An earlier study by researchers in Finland also found that Vitamin C helps those with type 2 diabetes maintain better glycemic control, improving both fasting blood glucose levels as well as long-term HbA1c readings.
Vitamin C supplementation does more to help diabetics than lower blood sugar and LDL cholesterol levels. It is well understood that obesity is a factor in determining who may develop type 2 diabetes. A 2007 study conducted by nutritionists at the University of Arizona explored the links between Vitamin C and body mass index (BMI) on a group of sedentary, non-smoking individuals, the majority of whom were either overweight or obese. The study concluded that those with the highest BMI and highest amounts of body fat had the lowest levels of Vitamin C. It also found that women with higher Vitamin C levels also had the highest levels of the fat-suppressing hormone, adiponectin.
Understanding the role Vitamin C has in reducing blood sugar, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and obesity is fundamental for helping those who have or are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Vitamin C is generally understood to be safe, indicating that it would also be a safe way to prevent or treat type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. While Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables, it may be difficult to consume 1000 mg each day without the aid of a supplement. These are among the reasons Vitamin C is one of the many safe and trusted ingredients found in Amino Diet Endocrine Boost Supplement.
