We are delighted to introduce Multi-Guard® Control to the Lamberts® range which has been formulated specially to help the body maintain a more even balance of its energy reserves between meals.
The formula provides 26 nutrients at relevant levels including, per daily dose, 200µg of GTF chromium which is probably the better known of all the blood sugar (glucose) control nutrients. We have included 300mg of magnesium since it is a component of many enzymes involved in the breakdown of blood sugar and acts as a ‘secondary messenger’ for the activity of insulin at the cellular membrane level.
There is also 150mg of alpha lipoic acid as research has shown it can activate the insulin signalling cascade in cells, thus having implications for blood sugar control. Indeed studies in individuals with blood sugar imbalance have demonstrated that alpha lipoic acid may improve glucose uptake by enhancing insulin sensitivity.
Studies have confirmed that cinnamon has a positive effect on glucose metabolism in individuals with blood sugar imbalance. Tests on cinnamon have indicated that it may work by helping to activate the insulin receptor, increasing insulin sensitivity. In one study of subjects with blood sugar imbalance, cinnamon lowered levels of LDL and total cholesterol as well as blood sugar levels. This suggests that cinnamon may additionall0y hold promise for helping to reduce the risk factors associated with blood sugar disorders. So we have incorporated a full 2000mg of cinnamon into our product, reflecting our policy to formulate our products with relevant potencies.
Other nutrients that have also been shown to help support glucose utilisation include: zinc, vitamin C and in particular the vitamins B1, B3 and B6. And these nutrients are all included at significant levels.
We think you will find Lamberts® Multi-Guard® Control an invaluable ‘multi’ for your practice and one that is hard to beat for both its potency and price. And it goes without saying that it is produced to our normal pharmaceutical standards.
