Diabetes


Metabolic disease, which is a disorder of blood glucose regulation, which is a pathological of hyperglycaemia -resulting from a defect in the secretion or effect of insulin. (a hormone produced in the pancreas).

Chronic hyperglycaemia in diabetes causes damage, impaired function and failure of various organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and blood vessels.

Based on national Health Fund data, it is reported that there are about 3.5 million people with diabetes,

Please note! Only 50-60% of cases are diagnosed diabetes mellitus, remaining 40-50% – diabetes undiagnosed.

More than 1 million Poles do not realise that they ill, because a diabetes remains undiagnosed.

Poorly treated diabetes is dangerous and not only reduces the quality of life, but also prematurely kills the patient mainly due to inflammatory diseases and atherosclerosis of blood vessels.

It\'s estimated that more than 50 % of people with diabetes die from coronary heart disease. Diabetes in combination with the coronary disease increases the risk of death about three times in men and about 4 times in women..

Type 1 diabetes mellitus (Insulin-dependent)

  • Type 1 diabetes has a genetic basis.
  • It composes roughly 10% of all cases of diabetes.
  • It can appear at any age, but most often it occurs in the childhood or adolescence.
  • Clinically, it is characterised by hyperglycaemia and a tendency to ketoacidosis and requires insulin therapy, i.e. it\'s the result of an absolute insulin deficiency.
  • In people with genetic predisposition, the environmental factors (such as viral infections (rubella virus, mumps, Coxsackie B), some chemical compounds (nitrosamines) or chemical contamination of food) affect the prevalence of autoimmune beta cell destruction and type 1 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (Noninsulin-dependent)

  • Clinically, it is characterised by hyperglycaemia, with no tendency to ketoacidosis.
  • Some patients require periodic or permanent insulin therapy to compensate for hyperglycaemia and prevent-diabetic coma.
  • Type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed in patients over 30 years of age,
  • In 80% it\'s related to obesity.
  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a differentiated disorder in which hyperglycaemia is caused by both decreasing insulin release in response to glucose and peripheral tissue resistance to insulin (insulin resistance).

Other types of diabetes

The remaining 5% of diabetic cases are other types of diabetes. MODY (Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young) Monogenic Diabetes is 2%-3% of all diseases. Other types include drug-induced diabetes and diabetes associated with other conditions such as Down syndrome.

The chronic complications of diabetes include:

  • diabetic nephropathy,
  • ocular complications – mainlydiabetic retinopathy (along with diabetic nephropathy is included in microangiopathic complications) and cataract
  • diabetic neuropathy
  • The destruction of large blood vessels- macroangiopathic-atherosclerosis (diabetes is an independent risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis), characterized by the development of younger age, disseminating changes in the arteries with lesser caliber, impaired cardiovascular disease due to microangiopathy, a painless course of atherosclerotic syndromes (e.g. myocardial infarction)
  • Diabetic foot syndrome – due to in micro- and macroangiopathic changes and neuropathy
  • and many more - bone, joint and skin complications.

OptiSugar®

This is a dietary supplement, that includes a bitter melon extract and fruits extracts from burdock and maqui. Properly composed ingredients not only lower the blood sugar level,
but also prevent its sudden rise or drop and increase glucose tolerance. Opti Sugar® can be used both by people suffering from diabetes as well as healthy people, in order to maintain the correct sugar level

Ingredients:

Opti Sugarin®

is a proprietary formula of extracts: chicory root and fenugreek seeds, which helps to lower blood sugar levels and improve the condition of the intestinal microflora.

Bitter melon or balsam-pear (Momordica charantia L.)

• Extremely valuable phytotherapeutical plant !!!,
• Glycosides - steroids and triterpenes (momordycin, momordicoside). immunomodulatory and oncostatic.
• Extracts from Bitter Melon fruit increase insulin release and lower blood glucose, while lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.
• Furthermore, charantine has antitumor activity (oncostatic and cytotoxic, immunostimulatory)
• Studies have shown that the mixture of steroidal saponins, known as charantine, a peptide with insulin-like effect, is responsible for hypoglycaemic activity.
• Phytosterols - positively influencing the lipid metabolism (stigmasterol, taraxasterol, spinasterol, lanosterol), saponins (diosgenin, goyasaponins) and alkaloids.
• The proteins and alkaloids of this plant inhibit the development of psoriasis and lymphomas.
• Momorcharin inhibits the development of HIV, herpes, influenza and Epstein-Barr viruses. Increase resistance to viral infections, accelerating and intensifying the synthesis of interferon and increasing the number and activity of NK (natural killer cell) lymphocytes.

Cinnamomum verum, or true cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum Presl)

• The studies show that - Standardised natural and concentrated cinnamon extract:
• reduces blood glucose and triglycerides, reduces LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol in patients with type 2 diabetes. The researchers suggest that the inclusion of cinnamon into the diet of patients could reduce the risk of factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
• Water-alcoholic extracts from the cinnamon bark - have antibacterial and antifungal properties - reduce fermentation processes in the digestive tract and inhibit the growth of protozoa/coprozoa and fungus (e.g. Candida Albicans)

Gurmar leaves extract (Gymnema sylvestris L.)

The main components of the raw material are glycosides called gymnemic acids
• stimulation of pancreatic β-cells, increase in insulin secretion confirmed in clinical trials.
• blocking of taste receptors (inhibit the ability to taste sweet or bitter) without affecting the ability to taste the other flavours
• CHROMIUM: The raw material contains a chromium bioelement, which is a part of GTF (Glucose Tolerant Factor - that is the most important regulator of the sense of hunger and satiety), that controls insulin and affects the normalisation of blood sugar levels. This factor supports the transformation of carbohydrates and thus prevents the transformation of carbohydrates into fat and improves the use of glucose in cells. It then prevents the absorption of all sugar particles in the intestines, which ensures the maximum usage of this part of sugar that remains in the body to produce energy. It does make it easier to maintain an adequate level of glucose in people who do not follow a strict diet. The correct supply of this element to the body can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes, while its lack may potentiate symptoms of a disease. Attention! Important! We are afraid of hypoglycaemia in healthy people? In people after using Gurmar (Gymnema Sylvestre), the effect of lowering the glucose level was not observed.

Maqui fruits (Aristotelia Chilensis Mollina)

• Blueberry juice has healing properties as well as astringent and anti-diarrheal properties.
• Maqua belongs to the "superfruits",
• A valuable tool to fight against osteoarthritis. Anti-inflammatory, analgesic
• Maqua leaves have antibacterial effect.
• Increases hair growth, acts anty-aging on the skin and inhibits lipid peroxidation.
• Has an anti-diabetic effect.
• Helps on preventing an atherosclerosis.

Common chicory (Cichorium intybus L.)

Properties: Chicory root - extract medicinal material.
• Prebiotic polysaccharides (inulin 40-60%), Inulin contained in chicory promotes the development of symbiotic gastrointestinal microflora, reduces the absorption of cholesterol, influences immunotropically, stimulating the immune system GALT.
• For the treatment of diabetes, metabolic disorders, for the reconstruction of the gastrointestinal tract (prebiotic - inulin). Prevents constipation. It relieves the symptoms of diabetes and metabolic poisoning. Increases detoxification.
• Confirmed choleretic and cholagogic effects - that's why chicory preparations are recommended in the prevention and treatment of liver edema, bile stasis, cholelithiasis, lack of appetite and fat dyspepsia. According to FP VI, chicory root is used as an appetite-enhancing, digestive and hypoglycemic preparation.


Use: Chicory root extracts has biligenic, cholagogic, diuretic, digestive, prebiotic and hypoglycemic properties

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.)

Properties:
• shielding and anti-inflammatory - in peptic ulcer disease.
• Can lower cholesterol and blood sugar.
• Bile, diastolic, bile, stimulate the secretion of pancreatic, gastric and intestinal juice,
• Strengthening - stimulating the regeneration of all tissues, anabolic
• activating hemedema (fenugreek is a natural activator of blood cell production processes),
• Increased phosphorus retention in the body (stops phosphorus in the body - cachexia or fitness.).
• Increases protein synthesis, raises the concentration of high-energy compounds in the body (ATP, phosphocreatine).

Common barberry (Berberis vulgaris L.)

Barberry extract has an anti-swelling, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant effect and supports the treatment of diabetes. The bark and roots have antibiotic properties, they contain isoquinoline alkaloids, mainly berberine (1.24% [8]), berbamin (2.5% [8]), palmatine and magnoflorine. Barberry was recommended in the absence of appetite, in cholelithiasis, in chronic hepatitis, cholecystitis, as a diastolic agent also in kidney stones and in many other conditions. Berberine has antibacterial, antiprotozoal, antidiarrheal, anticancer, antidiabetic, hypotensive, anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory properties, and lowers cholesterol. Cameroon contains active ingredients with a strength comparable to that of antibiotics. Fruits are a natural source of easily absorbable vitamins and carotenoids that are provitamin A. Due to the high content of vitamin C (80 mg in 100 g), barberry is called the Polish lemon, lemon of the North, acidic acid.

Use: Diabetes, liver inflammation, cholelithiasis, Intestinal flora disorders

Greater burdock (Arctium lappa L.)

The burdock extract contains inulin necessary to treat diabetes. Burdock increases the secretion of insulin by the pancreas.
Properties:

Water and alcohol extracts of burdock inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi, increase the secretion of bile, pancreatic juice and intestinal juice, have a diastolic and hypoglycemic effect. They increase the secretion of sweat and urine, along with harmful and unnecessary metabolites. Burdock juice strengthens, strengthens immunity, activates tissue renewal processes and regulates sebum secretion. Burdock preparations inhibit inflammation in the body. Arctigenic acid is responsible for the antidiabetic effect, which probably affects the increase of insulin secretion by the pancreas, which is a process disturbed in the case of diabetes. Other studies indicate the activity of sitosterol derivatives present in the root and fruits of Arctium lappa. They lower the sugar level due to the inhibition of β-glucosidase, which delays the absorption of glucose and lowering postprandial hyperglycemia. Scientific research has shown that burdock is rich in lignans that are present in all parts of the plant. According to many researchers, they are responsible for the multidirectional activity of raw materials rich in these compounds. The most important representatives of this group of compounds are arctigenin (in leaves, fruits, seeds and roots), arktin (leaves, fruits, roots), trachelogenin (fruits), lappaol F (fruits, roots, seeds) and diarctigenin (fruits, roots and seeds) . It has been proven that anti-inflammatory action of burdock is based on inhibition of the induced form of nitric oxide synthase (and NOS), on the activity of proinflammatory cytokines, activation of antioxidant enzymes and scavenging of free radicals. Lappaol F, diarctigenin and arctygenin are particularly active in this field. Excessive production of nitric oxide by iNOS is associated with the course of various diseases, such as arthritis, autoimmune diseases or chronic inflammation. Bioactive lignans also show promising anticancer activity, consisting in induction of programmed cell death (apoptosis) on tumor cell lines and inhibition of tumor growth by reducing its tolerance to glucose deficiency. This activity requires confirmation with further research, but it is already known that natural lignans are compounds with high therapeutic potential.

Use: Diabetes, psoriasis, toxin cleansing, digestive disorders
