Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a nutrient required for cellular metabolism, specifically the breakdown of carbohydrates and fatty acids. ALA has been shown to support healthy blood sugar balance by activating an enzyme called adenosine mono-phosphate kinase (AMPK), a major regulator of cellular energy. AMPK coordinates both long-term and short-term metabolic changes, leading to an improvement in energy production and a reduction of energy storage. AMPK activates cellular metabolism by improving insulin sensitivity, downregulating genes involved in fat storage and activating genes involved with burning fat. A study using a dose of 600 mg/day of ALA over three months demonstrated that ALA helps support healthy lipid levels while improving oxidative stress (reducing free radical damage) by 38%. An additional study examining the effects of ALA on 74 subjects found that within the four-week, placebo-controlled trial, administration of 600 mg of ALA per day significantly enhanced glucose transport and utilization. ALA is also a potent antioxidant. It scavenges free radicals while aiding in the regeneration of the body’s antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione. Through its antioxidant-boosting mechanisms, ALA helps maintain healthy blood vessel and circulatory health.
Cinnulin® (Cinnamon Bark Extract)
Numerous studies have demonstrated that cinnamon has a beneficial effect on maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Cinnamon acts by inhibiting several enzymes that play a role in insulin resistance leading to an increase in insulin sensitivity. Diaxinol contains Cinnulin®, which is made using a patented process that extracts the water-soluble components of cinnamon into a potent 20:1 extract (500 mg of Cinnulin® is equivalent to approximately 10 g of whole cinnamon powder). Cinnulin® is standardized to contain doubly-linked polyphenol type A polymers, the bioactive component which has been shown to be effective in clinical trials. In a study examining the effects of Cinnulin®, 24 men and women were given 250 mg of Cinnulin®, or placebo, twice per day. Cinnulin® helped to maintain healthy blood sugar levels in 83% of subjects in the treatment group, compared to 33% in the placebo group. Cinnulin® has also been shown to support healthy body composition by increasing lean body mass while reducing body fat. An additional study examined the effects of 6 g of cinnamon on glucose levels in subjects consuming 50 g of carbohydrates (instant farina cereal
