Maintaining healthy blood sugar (glucose) levels can often pose a challenge because, on average, Americans spend 21 hours a day being sedentary. Additionally, we consume foods that are highly processed, refined, and contain excessive levels of sugar while offering very little in the way of micronutrients and fiber. Combining these lifestyle practices with genetic predisposition and high-stress patterns make it very difficult to maintain adequate blood sugar levels. Healthy blood sugar regulation is a complex process that requires a number of metabolic factors working at optimal capacity. Part of this process includes a region in the pancreas called the Islets of Langerhans. This region has various types of cells involved in regulating blood sugar levels. If blood glucose levels fall (which often occurs due to stress or lack of food intake for an extended period of time), the alpha cells of this region secrete glucagon, a hormone that triggers the release of stored glucose (glycogen) from the liver and skeletal muscles. Conversely, when blood sugar levels are elevated, beta cells in the Islets of Langerhans secrete the hormone insulin. Insulin causes liver cells, muscle cells and fat cells to take up glucose from the bloodstream. The delicate balance of blood sugar levels is crucial for regulating the body’s production of energy. Micronutrients such as chromium, biotin and vanadyl sulfate are required to support enzymatic reactions and cellular signaling systems that maintain the body’s homeostasis. Diaxinol’s blend of ingredients helps support the body’s glucose and lipid-regulating mechanisms in order to help optimize energy expenditure and fuel storage mechanisms.

Supports Normal Cellular Metabolism
Diaxinol® is a blend of natural extracts and vitamins to support healthy blood glucose levels. Diaxino®l’s unique and effective formulation contains five ingredients provided at targeted doses for maximum efficacy. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a potent antioxidant that supports insulin regulation, glucose utilization, and cellular metabolism. Cinnulin®, a patented 20:1 aqueous cinnamon extract, supports both balanced glucose metabolism and healthy blood lipid levels. Chromium is added to support glucose tolerance factor (GTF) production, a critical component in cellular uptake of glucose. In a study examining the effects of Cinnulin®, 24 men and women were given 250 mg of Cinnulin®, or placebo, twice per day. Cinnulin® helped to maintain healthy blood sugar levels in 83% of subjects in the treatment group, compared to 33% in the placebo group. Cinnulin® has also been shown to support healthy body composition by increasing lean body mass while reducing body fat.
Chromium is a critical part of the molecule glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which is important for glucose uptake into the cells.
Vanadyl sulfate is a mineral that mimics the action of insulin and plays a major role in promoting healthy glucose uptake by activating the GLUT4 pathway. Studies have shown Vanadyl sulfate effective at improving insulin sensitivity.
ALA has been shown to support blood sugar balance by activating AMPK, a major regulator of cellular energy. A study using a dose of 600 mg/day of ALA over three months demonstrated that ALA helps support healthy lipid levels while improving oxidative stress (reducing free radical damage) by 38%. An additional study examining the effects of ALA on 74 subjects found that within the four-week, placebo-controlled trial, administration of 600 mg of ALA per day significantly enhanced glucose transport and utilization.
