Seven Years of Blood Sugar Management with GlucAffect

This November marks the 7th anniversary of Reliv’s GlucAffect® nutritional supplement launch. GlucAffect was developed to support healthy blood sugar levels and weight loss, indicators of metabolic syndrome which can lead to chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Research supports the effectiveness of the GlucAffect formulation.

GlucAffect was studied in an 8-week clinical trial that included 50 overweight participants with moderately elevated fasting blood glucose. Subjects were randomly assigned to either four daily servings of GlucAffect or a placebo meal replacement, and all participants took part in a diet and exercise program. Those who took GlucAffect lowered their fasting glucose by an average of 30%, moving them to healthy blood glucose levels. They also lost an average of 16 pounds. The control group taking the placebo did not experience significant reduction in their blood glucose levels or weight.

The patented GlucAffect formula includes several potent extracts, such as Pycnogenol®, LunaRich® and banaba leaf, which continue to be studied for their health benefits, especially in regards to the risk factors of metabolic syndrome.

Pycnogenola powerful antioxidant that has been shown to lower blood glucose levels, LDL and blood pressure.

A 2015 review in Phytotherapy Research reported that Pycnogenol’s “strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, endothelium-dependent vasodilator activity, and also its anti-thrombotic effects make it appropriate for targeting the multifaceted pathophysiology of metabolic syndrome. Clinical studies have shown that it can reduce blood glucose levels in people with diabetes, blood pressure in mild to moderate hypertensive patients and waist circumference; and improve lipid profile, renal and endothelial functions in metabolic syndrome.”  Continue reading “Science & Health Today: Blood Sugar Management”

ACUTE INFLAMMATION: THE QUICK FIX

Acute inflammation is your body’s reaction to something foreign, such as viruses, bacteria, allergens and trauma. When the foreign invader is no longer a threat, the inflammatory response should return to its healthy state: ready but not active.

Acute inflammation is an important immune response that protects you from infection and repairs tissues following injury. In most cases it is short-lived because the stimulus that triggered its activation is no longer present. The immune system has done its job of destroying the pathogens and healing the damaged tissues.

CHRONIC INFLAMMATION: THE SLOW BURN

But what happens when the inflammatory stimulus doesn’t go away? Many of the environmental signals that trigger inflammation are less obvious, continuous threats that keep the immune system functioning at a low level for a long period of time. This leads to chronic inflammation — a lowgrade, systemic condition often without any immediate symptoms. Over time, chronic inflammation slowly destroys tissues, leading to cumulative and serious damage.

Epigenetic Factors You Can’t Control

Before we’re born, our parents’ choices, their health conditions and the environmental toxins they are exposed to can affect how our genes are expressed, especially during the vulnerable early development period. This includes genes related to adipogenesis, or the process of creating fat cells. The mechanism for adipogenesis is first set during the fetal and neonatal stages of life. Changes in the expression of these genes can affect the size of fat cells and how they are distributed in the body. Continue reading “Obesity & Epigenetics: Put on Your Skinny Genes!”
