The Hotze Insulin Control Formula is designed to help control blood sugar. Doing so increases energy and prevents excess insulin. Insulin is the hormone that directs cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream. Too much insulin leads to hormonal imbalances, raging appetite, obesity (belly fat), loss of muscle and premature aging. The Hotze Insulin Control Formula aims to correct these health obstacles.
Insulin is the nutrient taxi and it escorts blood glucose (AKA blood sugar) and other nutrients into the muscle cells to be used for fuel. This keeps us alive and energized. Too much insulin however can be detrimental. Excess insulin tells the body to store fat and instead use glucose (blood sugar) for fuel. Basically this shuts off thermo genesis which is the biological phenomenon of converting fat into heat. Without thermogenesis, fat is stored especially in the abdomen region and is unable to be used for energy. This is true regardless of exercise or caloric restrictions.
High insulin also causes many hormonal systems that regulate appetite, mood, energy, muscle growth and even fertility to be thrown out of balance. This imbalance is usually secured long-term by a sugar addition that accompanies excess insulin. Long term high insulin levels lead to a medical condition known as insulin resistance or Syndrome X. This is an epidemic among children and adults in today’s society. The excess insulin numbs muscle cells and muscles cells will no longer react to it. Since the glucose can not gain entry into muscle cells and the glucose remains in the bloodstream causing blood sugar to skyrocket. Glucose overload leads to the clinical diagnosis of depression, premature aging of the skin, hypertension, heart disease, type II diabetes, and cancer.
It is extremely important to get control over elevated blood sugar levels. Most people are unaware that diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure, amputations, increased risk of heart attack or stroke, dementia, and a primary contributor to erectile dysfunction.
The components of the Hotze Insulin Control Formula are:
Banaba Leaf The Banaba leaf is a medicinal plant that grows in India, Southeast Asia, and in the Philippines. It has been used for thousands of years in the Philippines for blood sugar control. (if allergic to members of the Lythraceae family avoid using products with the Banaba leaf). The Banaba leaf contains colosolic acid, which activates glucose transport into the cells, resulting in a reduction of blood sugar.
Green Tea The green tea has also been used for a very long time. It has been used as a medicine in China for at least 4,000 years. The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots.
Cinnamon USDA research indicates that Cinnamon reduces the amount of insulin necessary for glucose metabolism. Furthermore, Cinnamon has been shown to stimulate glucose uptake and glycogen synthesis to similar level as insulin.
Ginger Root The Ginger helps increase absorption and circulation of the nutrients. Many obese and diabetic people have a difficult time with nutrient uptake and circulation.
Suggested Usage: 1-2 capsules 15- 30min before each meal. Supplement
Facts Per Capsule: 495mg Proprietary Blend: 1% banaba leaf, cinnamon 10:1, whole herb green tea polyphenols 8:1, ginger root 4:1. (NOTE: NO FILLERS IN THIS PRODUCT!)
Note: If you are on insulin or other medications that lower blood sugar (hypoglycemics), consult with a health practitioner in order to properly gauge your use of natural hypoglycemics. Also avoid if on anticoagulant/antip latelet drugs as banaba has been shown to produce antithrombin activity.
