The diabetic condition, marked by consistently elevated blood glucose levels above 126 mg./dL of blood, is a definite medical concern. However, if you have above normal blood glucose levels that are lower than the diabetic threshold, then this is a condition called prediabetes, it is best to nip pre-diabetes in the bud. Take cover with Setu’s Sugar Shield! The basic, natural formulation of our daily supplement is the healthier way to reduce excess circulating glucose and protect against oxidative stress, which is known to be highly elevated in hyperglycemics. Alpha lipoic acid is considered the first line of defence against hyperglycemia by many experts. In experimental studies, cinnamon was shown to help reduce high blood sugar levels and combat insulin resistance, as does the combination of chromium and biotin. As they say, a pill in time saves nine!

Results from a recent study published in a renowned journal showed that cinnamon helps control the levels of blood glucose and cholesterol in people with Type-2 Diabetes . When consumed by pre-diabetics, it may also help with a stoppage in progression to full-fledged diabetic condition along with additional benefits to avert heart diseases.

ALA or Alpha Lipoic Acid, also called lipoic acid, is an antioxidant found in trace amounts in some natural foods like liver, red meat, broccoli, brewer’s yeast and spinach. The body also makes it in small amounts by itself. People with diabetes have a risk of developing neuropathies causing leg and foot pain, and nerve degeneration. ALA is a master antioxidant that helps in relieving diabetic neuropathy by potentially lowering the blood glucose, thereby protecting against nerve damage. ALA is also believed to make the body be more sensitive to insulin, an added benefit in diabetes management. Read more about Setu’s specially extracted ingredient ALA here.
Chromium is a mineral that is required in trace amounts for normal functioning of the body. True brewer’s yeast serves as an ideal source of chromium. It is also found in potatoes (especially the skins), cheeses, a few spices, whole-grain breads and cereals, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Chromium aids in the mobilization of glucose (commonly known as blood sugar) within the cells, thus helping in utilization of energy from proteins, fats & carbohydrate sources.

Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is a water-soluble vitamin that’s a part of the vitamin B complex — a group of key nutrients needed for healthy metabolic, nervous, digestive and cardiovascular functions. Biotin is present in abundance in natural foods like poultry products, and in fruits and veggies like avocado, cauliflower, berries, legumes and mushrooms.

Biotin serves as a coenzyme in various bodily reactions like the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids and glucose. The presence of biotin is essential for the ultimate conversion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, into sources of energy.
Recent evidence suggests that a combination of biotin and chromium might lower blood sugar in people with diabetes, whose diabetes is poorly controlled by prescription medicines.
It is advisable to consult your physician prior to taking supplement if you are pregnant, lactating or suspect any medical condition.
Do not take on an empty stomach, nor exceed the dosage recommendation.
