AIM GlucoChrom™ is a unique combination of chromium, vanadium, bitter melon, and gymnema sylvestre. These substances have been used both traditionally and by health practitioners for years to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Working together, they provide the body with a natural way to balance blood sugar levels.
A daily serving of 2 capsules contains
1. Contains LeafBrand™ chromium-A new type of chromium supplement
AIM GlucoChrom™ is the first AIM product to use a unique and revolutionary method for delivering chromium to the body. This product uses barley grass as a natural delivery system that integrates chromium into the matrix of the plant through a proprietary process. This plant-bound chromium is recognized by the body and is extremely well- absorbed. There is no hybridization or genetic alteration.
2. Glucochrome contains Chromium
Chromium is the major mineral involved in insulin production, and a deficiency in this mineral can interfere with the production and utilization of insulin. Indeed, a chromium deficiency can result in three conditions directly related to blood sugar: high blood sugar levels, an inability of the cells to pick up and use blood sugar (impaired glucose tolerance), and higher insulin levels.
Studies have indicated that chromium does regulate blood sugar and insulin level.
The U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine has noted that current data suggest that chromium supplementation can be useful for people with glucose intolerance, Type II diabetes, gestational diabetes, and steroid-induced diabetes.
3. Glucochrome contains Vanadium
Although as early as 1899 it was found that a form of vanadium resulted in a decrease in blood sugar levels, it was not until the late 1970s that vanadium's insulin-like action was first described. Vanadium may activate insulin receptors-making the cells more receptive to insulin's "key"-and through this, exert insulin-like action.
4. Glucochrome contains - Bitter melon
Bitter melon grows in tropical areas, including parts of the Amazon, East Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and throughout South America. It is used as a food as well as a medicine. Bitter melon does much the same as chromium: it improves the body's ability to use blood sugar and improves glucose tolerance-that is, the body's ability to get the blood sugar into the cells.
At least one animal study has noted that bitter melon fruit juice results in an increase in the number of beta cells-the cells that produce insulin-in the pancreas of diabetic rats when compared with untreated diabetic rats. The authors of the study suggest that bitter melon may cause a renewal and recovery of the insulin- producing beta cells of the pancreas. (Diabetes Res Clin Proct40, no.3 (June 1998): 145-51.)5.
5. Glucochrome contains Gymnema sylvestre
Like chromium and vanadium, Gymnema sylvestre works to help increase glucose tolerance. Like bitter melon, it may help the pancreas produce insulin. Gymnema has been used with patients suffering from both Type I and Type II diabetes. In one study with 27 Type I diabetic patients, the Gymnema extract reduced the insulin requirements and lowered the fasting blood glucose levels. The abstract notes that gymnema extract enhances the ability of the pancreas to produce insulin, possibly by regeneration/revitalization of the residual beta cells in Type I diabetes. (J Ethnopharmacol 30 (1990): 281-294.)
6. Glucochrome may reduce or even remove the need for medication – make sure you check and adjust your medication accordingly and check with your doctor.
7. Glucochrome is a natural and has no side effects
8. Glucochrome can be used as a natural appetite suppressant as it regulates blood sugar, which helps control appetite.
9. Glucocrome – is available from the Aim companies and as a member you can order at the wholesale price
10. Simple instructions for use 1 capsule - twice daily, before meals
Together with a plant based, gluten and dairy free diet, daily moderate exercise done outdoors (preferably) with BarleyLife and Aimega the system that controls blood sugar (endocrine system) will work more efficiently and invariable results in a huge improvement in any blood sugar related problems. From Diabetes to insulin resistance and hypoglycaemia.
