AOR - Ortho Glucose ll - Supports Normal Blood Sugar Balance - 368 Mg 90 VCcaps


What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a syndrome characterized by abnormally elevated sugar levels in the blood. There are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. The incidence of diabetes is rapidly increasing and in 2005, 7% of the United States population had diabetes. Diabetes is linked to a number of serious health complications including cardiovascular disease, retinal damage, blindness, hypertension, neuropathy and many others.

Regulating Blood Sugar Levels
Many natural ingredients have been shown to help encourage healthy glucose metabolism and blood sugar levels. Cinnamon, DNJ, Chromium, BMOV (a source of the mineral vanadium), bitter melon extract, benaGene and the herb Gymnema sylvestre all lower blood sugar levels. Many of these, including cinnamon, chromium and vanadium, act by improving insulin sensitivity – allowing cells to respond normally to the hormone insulin.

Reducing the Risk of Complications
The ingredients in Ortho-Glucose II also act to help prevent certain complications of diabetes. Pine bark extract improves circulation in small blood vessels, helping to prevent, and even reverse, diabetic microangiopathy. Elevated cholesterol levels are another common complication. Cinnamon and chromium have been shown to help support healthy cholesterol levels.

Diabetes – A Silent Killer
Diabetes mellitus is characterized by elevated blood sugar levels. Type I diabetes results when the body attacks the cells that produce insulin – a key hormone that controls the entry of glucose into the cells and regulates blood glucose levels. Type II diabetes usually develops later in life and comprises 90% of diabetic patients. The prevalence of this type of diabetes is on the rise. Type II diabetes is primarily a result of increased insulin resistance, meaning that the cells no longer respond to normal levels of insulin. When cells are insulin resistant glucose will not enter the cells and blood glucose levels rise.

High blood sugar levels have astoundingly damaging effects on the body. Diabetics are at an increased risk of developing a large number of serious complications. For example, they are twice as likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease and are five times more likely to experience a heart attack. Other complications include high cholesterol levels, retinal damage, blindness, hypertension, neuropathy and many others.

A Natural Formula for the Support of Diabetes
Several well-researched nutrients have been demonstrated to encourage healthy glucose metabolism. Ortho•Glucose IITM is an advanced formula that contains nutrients capable of supporting the action of insulin and that encourage healthy glucose metabolism.

Cinnamon - Clinical trials have revealed that cinnamon has insulin-like activity and improves cellular glucose uptake. Cinnamon has also been shown to reduce blood glucose levels after eating, lower fasting plasma glucose levels by 10-29%, and even helps to balance high cholesterol levels.

DNJ - 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ) is found in mulberry and belongs to class of micro-nutrients known as iminosugars. These nutrients are theorized to help control blood glucose levels by influencing how much glycogen is converted into glucose. In one study, DNJ resulted in 55% lower insulin levels and 25% lower glucose levels than a placebo group following consumption of sugar.

Chromium - Chromium is an essential mineral for the metabolism of carbohydrates. It increases the sensitivity of insulin receptors which results in increased cellular transport of glucose and a reduction of blood sugar levels. Chromium has also been shown to lower cholesterol levels.

BMOV - Vanadium is a trace mineral with a critical role in cellular metabolism. It also has the ability to increase insulin sensitivity and significantly enhance glucose uptake. BMOV (bis(maltolato)oxovanadium(IV) is a potent and highly effective derivative of vanadium.

Momordica charantia - Micronutrients found in the extract of the fruit Momordica Charantia (bitter melon) have been shown to have hypoglycemic effects – reducing blood sugar levels by as much as 54% over the course of three weeks. These actions are thought to be accomplished through increased glucose utilization by the liver, inhibition of glucose production, and improved glucose oxidation.

Pine Bark Extract - Pycnogenol, a flavonoid found in pine bark extract, has been shown to help improve microcirculation in diabetic patients suffering from diabetic microangiopathy, a condition that causes capillaries to become congested with fat and blood clots, impeding circulation. In one study, significant improvements in microcirculation were observed after just 4 weeks.

Benagene™ - 3-carboxy-3-oxopropanoic acid is a nutrient that mimics the effects of a calorie-restricted diet, inducing the expression of over 400 genes. One of the beneficial effects of this is reduced blood glucose levels. Benagene has been shown to be effective for both Type I and Type II diabetics.

Gymnema sylvestre - This ayurvedic herb is known for its hypoglycemic effects. In clinical trials this herb has effectively reduced blood glucose levels in Type I and Type II diabetics and in some cases reduced the requirements for additional insulin. It appears that Gymnema enhances the body's own insulin production, possibly by regenerating or repairing beta cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin.
