An optimised nutritional complex for blood sugar and metabolism
The Blood Sugar Complex from Unimedica is a valuable enrichment for your balanced nutrition with special emphasis on blood sugar levels and metabolism. This is of particular interest for all those who want to keep their weight and blood sugar levels in check, since metabolism, blood sugar and weight management belong together.
Our Blood Sugar Complex combines valuable plant extracts from grapeseeds, cinnamon bark, turmeric and reishi with essential minerals as well as coenzyme Q10, fenugreek and a special patented whey protein complex with berberine (UltraBer™).
The chromium in particular supports normal blood sugar levels. Zinc and selenium additionally help to keep key metabolic processes running and protect the cells from oxidative stress.
With UltraBer™ whey protein complex from patented raw materials for the highest demands, with bioactive berberine
The Blood Sugar Complex from Unimedica uses especially high-quality and bioactive ingredients. The patented raw material UltraBer™ whey protein complex contains bioactive berberine which is bonded with whey protein. This means the valuable plant substances can be optimally absorbed by the body.
Berberine is an alkaloid found in the stem, bark and roots of barberry (Berberis aristata). It has a wide spectrum of uses in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
Whey protein is a very high-quality protein that contains all amino acids. It can be rapidly absorbed and used by the body since it is isolated from whey then concentrated and broken down into the smallest possible particles. Whey arises during the production of cheese when milk fat and protein are separated. Along with lactose, it contains free amino acids, whey protein and minerals. Proteins support the build-up and maintenance of muscle mass and fuel fat metabolism.
Selected plant substances and organic co-factors accompany blood sugar management in a natural way
Blood Sugar Complex from Unimedica is enriched with 70 % OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins, content measured by HPLC) from grapeseed extract and fenugreek seed powder from certified organic cultivation. OPCs are polyphenols of the flavanol group, secondary plant substances with efficacious characteristics to protect the plants.
Fenugreek seed powder is valuable for its natural essential oils and micronutrients, which deliver best results when taken together with a meal.
The finest Ceylon cinnamon bark from Sri Lanka (earlier Ceylon), an extract from the proven healing mushroom reishi with many polysaccharides and turmeric rich in curcuminoids plus the coenzyme Q10 involved in energy metabolism supplement the Blood Sugar Complex with their therapeutic and synergistic properties.
Metabolism as the key to blood sugar management
R-alpha-lipoic acid is a sulphur-containing fatty acid and is native to the body’s mitochondria – the power station of the cells. There it supports enzymatic metabolic processes. It is fat-soluble and water-soluble so that it can cross the blood-brain battier.
As a natural fibre that is broken down to propionates, inulin supports the synergistic effect of the Blood Sugar Complex. It is a mix of polysaccharides and glucose, as found in chicory, for example. Bifidobacteria in the gut use inulin as a good energy source. It does not influence blood sugar as it is not processed in the small intestine but is fermented by bacteria in the large intestine. The inulin used comes from organic cultivation.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulphur compound found in almost all organisms. Sulphur is one of the most important minerals in our body. It plays a role in many processes, including metabolism.
Created to support blood sugar and metabolism in a simple and natural way
The Blood Sugar Complex from Unimedica was created to support the indivisible threesome – weight management, blood sugar level and metabolism - with the power of nature. Chromium, with its ability to maintain normal blood sugar levels and to promote the uptake of macronutrients, plays a special role here.
Yet selenium also plays a fundamental role, contributing to the normal function of the thyroid gland as the control centre of metabolism. And zinc is involved in the regulation of the body’s acid-alkali balance, protein production and the metabolism or carbohydrate and fat. The trace elements zinc and selenium additionally support the immune system and cell protection.
Spectrum of action*
Zinc contributes to normal function of the immune system, normal acid-base metabolism, protection of cells from oxidative stress, maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood, normal fertility and reproduction, maintenance of normal bones, hair, skin and nails, maintenance of normal vision, normal carbohydrate and fatty acids metabolism, normal metabolism of vitamin A, normal cognitive function, normal protein synthesis and DNA synthesis and zinc has a role in the process of cell division.
Selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis, maintenance of normal hair and nails, normal functioning of the immune system, normal thyroid function and protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Chromium contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.
