The Sugar Syndrome ... Get Your Body Back in Balance
When a machine runs for 24 hours, 365 days a year and continuously for decades without stopping, it is liable to break down due to wear and tear. So why would the human body be any different? With the average lifespan increasing, coupled with our stressful modern life-styles, the health issue surrounding metabolic syndrome has become a very popular topic and a new global health phenomenon, especially with diabetes and obesity on the rise.
It begs the question, are you overweight and can't understand why? Are you addicted to sugar? Could you be developing type-2 diabetes and not even know it?
A Few Important Definitions
The metabolic syndrome is a cluster of metabolic abnormalities including abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, metabolism disorders, hypertension and inflammation. It is associated with higher susceptibility of developing heart disease, type-2 diabetes, stroke and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. All of these health issues seem to progress in frequency with age and lifestyle choices.
Insulin Resistance (IR)
Insulin resistance, in the medical world, is known as hyperinsulinemia, a condition where excess levels of insulin circulate through the blood. It's extremely common in diabetic patients and is a major factor in the developing of metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance is a generalized metabolic disorder. In other words, the body cannot use insulin efficiently to maintain stable blood glucose and triglyceride levels.
Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF)
Could the Glucose Tolerance Factor be the missing key to our health and well being? GTF is a complex molecule containing amino acids, vitamins and trivalent chromium. The concept of glucose tolerance was discovered in the kidneys of pigs and was first introduced in 1959 by Dr. Walter Mertz, former director of the Institute of Human Nutrition, USDA.
Later, researchers found GTF compounds in the liver of other animals, malt yeast and the colostrum of cattle. The best GTF was then found in human colostrum (mother's milk). Colostrum is the first secretion produced by the mammary glands of a mother, prior to the production of milk. It is vital and naturally designed for the healthy growth of newborn infants. GTF is necessary for maintaining the normal glucose and lipid metabolism by promoting insulin sensitivity (potency). Many manufacturers attempted to produce GTF in the lab, but most production was unstable, could not be duplicated or mass-produced for commercialization.
Approximately 12 years ago, there was a breakthrough. Dr. Frank Chiahung Mao, from Maxluck Biotechnology Corp., who specializes in endocrinology, developed the first proper and natural GTF as a dietary supplement. It's called GalaChrom. The results of a series of studies show it effectively improves glucose tolerance (absorption) and insulin sensitivity (potency). Moreover, serum levels of insulin, triglycerides, Leptin, C-reactive protein and other proteins were found to be lower in test subjects implying that daily supplementation may even alleviate many risk factors associated with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.
GalaChrom is patented in over 20 countries and is presently being sold in North America. Ongoing experiments suggest regular consumption may even improve skin texture and complexion, lending itself for a possible future debut into the cosmetic industry. Learn more about GalaChrom.
