Control your Blood Sugar Level


  Want to control your blood sugar level. Then have these nutrients in your daily diet

As our diet is much carbohydrate oriented which causes us to overproduce insulin. And insulin, when we are missing those three important nutrients named Chromium, CoQ-10 and Vitamin K, tells our body to convert more of the calories consumed to stored body fat. This is the direct path to obesity and diabetes.



Chromium (CR) is a trace mineral that was discovered in the 1950s to be important to our health.

 Chromium is a co-factor for insulin. Insulin uses it to transport sugar out of your blood and into your cells where it’s burned as energy. Without chromium, you have a lot of excess blood sugar buildup, which causes a lot of excess insulin secretion.

You probably know that when you make too much insulin, it leads to diabetes. But even mild insulin dysfunction will make you have low energy levels, produce more fat, make you crave sweet foods, and throw your body’s cholesterol levels completely out of whack.1

You can get chromium from grass-fed beef, ripe organic tomatoes and a source that may surprise you: red wine.


Vitamin K  :

As part of the Framingham Heart Study, researchers found that people with the highest levels of vitamin K had better insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar than people with the lowest vitamin K.


It’s most common in dark, leafy greens. But you can also get vitamin K from pumpkin seeds.


The islet cells in your pancreas, which make insulin, use CoQ10 as the fuel they need for energy. Without CoQ10, the islet cells get tired, and can’t make insulin as efficiently.

Another benefit comes from CoQ10’s unique dual role. At the same time it powers up your islet cells, it protects them.

You see, the Western diet, with all its starches, grains and sugars, can cause you to produce a lot of insulin. When that happens, the energy-making centers of your islet cells can become dysfunctional. This can then cause their DNA to be damaged.

CoQ10 is an incredibly powerful antioxidant that stops DNA damage, and helps keep the mitochondria of your islet cells from becoming dysfunctional.3
