A well-balanced blood sugar level is crucial to your overall fitness and well-being because it regulates your hormones, triggers your body to burn stored fat, and increases your metabolism to help you lose weight.
Unfortunately, most people’s blood sugar is not properly balanced. If you’re getting too much glucose, it leads to high blood-sugar levels, which your body can’t break down and stores as fat.
Ironically, not getting enough sugar can also lead to putting on extra pounds! Eating too little glucose can lead to a low blood sugar level, causing your body to go into “starvation mode” where it burns your lean muscle instead of the fat – a double whammy to your system and your diet. However, far more serious complications do result from unstable blood sugar levels, such as Diabetes.
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which the body does not produce enough insulin or the body cannot respond normally to the insulin made. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States and is associated with a greater risk for heart disease, hypertension and much more.
Research has shown that exercise improves a variety of glucose measures, including tissue sensitivity, improved glucose tolerance, and even a decrease in insulin requirements.
Eating controlled portions of foods that are high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will help you meet your nutritional needs as well as lower your risk of diabetes and related complications such as heart disease. Here are examples of the best foods to eat to maintain blood sugar levels:
No processed foods
Fruits and vegetables (fresh)
Lean proteins (tuna, salmon, tilapia, chicken)
Complex carbohydrates (brown rice, quinoa, bulgur, barley, oatmeal, beans)
Proper blood sugar maintenance can dramatically impact your health. From your cardiovascular system to your weight to your muscles, maintaining healthy levels of blood sugars can help you support long-term health.
While a proper diet and exercise is a great start, sometimes our bodies need more for healthy blood sugar support. Isotonix Isochrome, is a complete blood sugar maintenance supplement.
One small study suggests that chromium picolinate may reduce the risk of insulin resistance, and therefore possibly may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Providing two unique forms of chromium into our formula - including chromium picolinate - enables Isotonix Isochrome to help provide healthy blood sugar support and help maintain healthy levels of blood sugars.
This blood sugar maintenance formula also includes B vitamins, coenzyme Q10 and L-Carnitine, each of which work to support Isotonix Isochrome's unique benefits for energy and weight management.
Questions & Answers - Isotonix Isochrome
Why is fructose in Isotonix® Isochrome?
Fructose is the sweetest of all naturally-occurring sugars. It helps to make Isotonix Isochrome pleasant tasting with fewer calories. Consuming fructose does not produce the extreme highs and lows in blood sugar levels that ordinary table sugar might.
What is the best time of day to take Isotonix® Isochrome?
Because Isotonix Isochrome contains CoQ10, a fat soluble coenzyme, Isotonix Isochrome is best taken with a meal.
Is chromium picolinate safe?
Yes. Over 35 clinical trials have been conducted to analyze chromium picolinate and its effects.
Can you get L-carnitine from any food sources?
Yes, L-carnitine can be found in meats, vegetables and grains. It typically comes in higher concentrations in red meats, such as beef or lamb, and in lower concentrations in white meats and vegetables.
What are the other ingredients in Isotonix Isochrome useful for?
Isotonix Isochrome also includes boron, potassium, and vitamins B2 and B6. Potassium is a mineral that helps maintain fluid balance in the body, promotes normal nerve transmission, muscle relaxation, glycogen and protein synthesis and proper heartbeat. Vitamin B2 promotes glycogen synthesis, supports energy production, and supports the normal breakdown of fats while functioning as a cofactor in activating vitamin B6 and folic acid. Vitamin B6 helps to promote protein metabolism and the normal break down of glycogen, supports the conversion of linoleic to arachidonic acid and promotes the normal synthesis of brain chemicals, niacin, antibodies, red blood cells, DNA and elastin.
