Diabekan is a specially formulated diabetic combination containing Cinnamomum zeylanum / Chromium and Magnesium concentrate and contributes to:
- maintaining a normal blood glucose concentration and correspondingly normal blood glucose levels
- stimulating insulin receptors and increasing the ability of cells to utilize glucose
- normal metabolism of macro nutrients
- helps overcome fatigue and lack of energy due to illnesses
It does not irritate the stomach because of the specifics of the aqueous extract used.
It can be taken for a long time.
Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels, or, as is more popular, sugar levels are too high. Glucose enters the body from the food we consume. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose to enter the cells and give them the energy they need.
In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the body does not produce enough or does not use the insulin produced. Without enough insulin, glucose can not flow into the cells and remains in the blood.
The most common type of diabetes is type 2 - about 90-95% of people with diabetes suffer from this form. Type 2 diabetes is associated with advanced age, obesity, family predisposition, reduced physical activity, and more.
Healthy eating is an essential part of the treatment of diabetes. It helps to maintain normal blood sugar levels and prevent complications.
Healthy eating of people with diabetes includes:
- restricting foods that contain sugar;
- reducing fat in food;
- limiting alcohol;
- use less salt;
- consuming smaller portions, but more often;
- inclusion in the menu of whole grains and vegetables;
- reducing carbohydrate-containing foods.
Cinnamon has been used for nutritional and medical purposes since ancient times. Its traditional use is quite wide: from wound healing to cold treatment. Only in recent years researchers have found its use in maintaining normal blood sugar levels.
The cinnamon extract differs from regular cinnamon due to the absence of side effects after long-term use for curative purposes. Common cinnamon contains some ingredients - oils and even coumarin, which can cause stomach irritation. In Diabean, a specially made aqueous ceylon cinnamon extract is used. When processing this cinnamon extract, only the water-soluble components of the plant are extracted. This contributes to the safety of the extract.
It has been found that the active substances in the cinnamon extract are water-soluble polyphenol polymers. They are unique in that they increase the absorption of glucose from the body and improve the action of insulin through its strong antioxidant effect. Animal and human studies have shown that cinnamon extract stimulates insulin receptors and inhibits the enzymes that suppress them, thus significantly increasing the ability of cells to utilize glucose.
Studies have also shown a decrease in cholesterol and triglyceride levels. This is due to the fact that cinnamon extract has a strong antioxidant effect that significantly reduces the extent of arterial wall build-up.
Chromium is a great assistant to insulin.
Chromium is a great assistant to insulin. Chromium enhances the anabolic effect of insulin by binding to phosphorus molecules in insulin receptors, thus speeding up the glucose infusion in the cell (up to 100 times faster).
With age, chromium stores in the body are decreasing, while modern diets are poor on this trace element.
The addition of chromium to the basic formula of Diabean optimizes and improves its effect.
Magnesium in Diabean helps in the formation, secretion and transport of insulin. The loss of magnesium in urine (due to polyuria) in diabetics is greater and therefore additional delivery is needed.
