How To Control Sugar Absorption Naturally

Obesity is out of control in our country. The United States is one of the fattest countries in the world. We engage in fad dieting that is not sustainable. We eat food that is not nutrient dense, and has way too much sugar in it. We all know it. It’s an amazingly hard habit to break for many of us.

This is one of the reasons that the LifEnrich Nutrition For Life supplements company was born. Our goal is to provide proven nutrients that assist our body to reach it’s optimal state.

Diabetes and obesity go hand in hand, so we have formulated a supplement to help with this great problem. Sugar control, and keeping sugar from turning to fat is a part of the solution.

The Principle

The principle behind LifEnrich Sugar Guard is that it prevents the body from absorbing sugar and turning it into fat. So, this can be a very useful aid for those who are worried about their sugar intake whether it is because they are fighting diabetes or whether it is because they are trying to lower their carbohydrate intake for weight loss purposes.

Sugar Guard Ingredients

Chromium

Chromium is a metallic element that humans require in very small amounts. It is an essential part of metabolic processes that regulate blood sugar, and helps insulin transport glucose into cells, where it can be used for energy. Chromium also appears to be involved in the metabolism of carbohydrate, fat, and protein.

Chromium enhances the actions of insulin and is necessary for maintaining normal metabolism and storage of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Inadequate intake of chromium has been linked to the development of glucose intolerance, a condition seen in type 2 diabetes.
Chromium is supposed to increase metabolism by helping cells get blood sugar. This means that there will be a reduction for craving for carbohydrates and sugars as fuels for the body.

Gymnema Sylvestre

Gymnema Sylvestre is a time-tested herb from India that has long been used as a way to deal with diabetes. This is the most literal sugar blocker because the molecules of its primary component, gymnemic acid, resemble glucose and they literally take up the space in the cell receptors and stop or block the absorption of sugars.

Gymnemic acids delay the glucose absorption in the blood. The atomic arrangement of gymnemic acid molecules is similar to that of glucose molecules. These molecules fill the receptor locations on the taste buds thereby preventing its activation by sugar molecules present in the food, thereby curbing the sugar craving. Similarly, Gymnemic acid molecules fill the receptor location in the absorptive external layers of the intestine thereby preventing the sugar molecules absorption by the intestine, which results in low blood sugar level

White Kidney Bean Extract

During the digestive process, the body converts carbohydrates into sugar. The body does this by digesting the carbohydrate molecule with an enzyme called alpha-amylase. The resulting sugar is then used as energy for the body, or stored as fat.

LifEnrich Sugar Guard is the first carbohydrate ‘blocker’ that is clinically proven in over a dozen completed and published clinical trials to delay the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This in turn, reduces the caloric impact of starchy foods, and also lowers the glucose response and glycemic index.

When used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise, LifEnrich Sugar Guard may assist in weight control. While there is no such thing as a ‘magic-bullet’ for weight control, LifEnrich Sugar Guard may enable people concerned with weight control and/or blood glucose levels to enjoy carb-rich foods again in moderation.

L-arabinose

It is a plant sugar that has been identified as a potent sucrose inhibitor. By blocking the metabolism of sucrose, L-arabinose inhibits the spike in blood sugar and fat synthesis that would otherwise follow a sugar-rich meal. A study combining L-arabinose and white bean extract not only smoothed out postprandial glucose spikes and reduced insulin levels—it lowered systolic blood pressure.

L-arabinose neutralizes sucrase, reducing uptake of sugar (as sucrose) into the blood. Extracts of white bean block amylase and glucosidase activity, further reducing the number of ingested carbohydrate calories that are absorbed.

These natural compounds have been shown to effectively lower excess calorie absorption while reducing postprandial (post-meal) blood sugar and blood fat (triglyceride) spikes.

Vanadium

Vanadium is needed by your muscles to obtain enough glucose for energy and also blocks the storage of excess glucose in fat cells by stabilizing insulin production.

Black Pepper Extract

Piperine, the main alkaloid from black pepper has been shown to substantially increase the bioavailability of the nutrients in foods and supplements.
Black pepper is also an antioxidant powerhouse, which can help protect against diabetes. It can act as a diuretic, reducing bloating in the intestinal tract where it promotes digestive health through its antioxidant effects.
