Studies show that more than 80% of the population in the US have blood sugar levels that are too high. High carbohydrate intake leads to high blood sugar, but stress, alcohol, caffeine & lack of exercise can lead to increased insulin. High circulating insulin can lead to insulin resistance and eventually, diabetes.
Diabetes increases your risk of cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure & memory loss.
The Lee Clinic recommends a diet rich in vegetables, good fats and quality meat. In addition, the vitamins & minerals below aid in your body's regulation of insulin and blood sugar to keep you performing at your best.

Chromium - increases insulin sensitivity by increasing insulin receptors, which is needed for carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
Vanadium - improves insulin sensitivity
Vitamin D - helps the pancreas release insulin and increases insulin sensitivity, better than Metformin. Low vitamin D levels are associated with insulin resistance
Taurine - increases the activity of the insulin receptor and improves sensitivity to insulin. Also protects nerve fiber integrity, which may protect against diabetic neuropathy.
Magnesium - improves glucose uptake by modulating transport across cell membranes. 70% of the population is deficient and deficiency is associated with insulin resistance.
Zinc - helps balance blood sugar levels
B Vitamins - aids in sugar metabolism and helps with cravings
Vitamin B12 - also vital in carbohydrate metabolism. Important for nerve function, which is vital for those with diabetic neuropathy.
Vitamin C - cofactor in glucose metabolism, important for collagen cross-linking.
Vitamin K2 (product coming soon) – Has been shown to increases insulin sensitivity, needs to be in balance with calcium to prevent too much calcium from accumulating in the lining of blood vessels.
Berberine (product coming soon)- in multiple studies has been shown to be helpful in regulating blood sugar
