Biotin – is involved in the metabolism of fatty acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, proteins and fats and aids in the utilization of B-complex vitamins. Biotin aids in weight loss by increasing insulin sensitivity and by balancing blood sugar levels. Biotin may help patients with diabetic neuropathy. It is necessary for healthy hair and nails.
Chromium Polynicotinate –Chromium concentrations in the tissues decrease with age and this may be a reason for the significant increase in diabetes as we get older. In clinical studies of type II diabetes patients, supplementing the diet with chromium has shown to decrease fasting glucose levels, improve glucose tolerance, lower insulin levels and decrease total cholesterol and triglyceride levels while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol levels. Chromium is an important mineral that stimulates certain enzymes involved in the metabolism of glucose. A deficiency of Chromium can lead to and aggravate adult-onset diabetes.
Gymnema Leaf Extract –leaves, whether extracted or infused into a tea, suppress glucose absorption and reduce the sensation of sweetness in foods – effects which may deliver important health benefits for individuals who want to reduce blood sugar levels or body weight.
Lipoic Acid –The Natural Energizer. The body cannot use sugar for energy without lipoic acid as it primes natural energizing pathways of the body. Lipoic acid is crucial for helping optimize the function of the insulin receptors on body cells and is essential for diabetics. Lipoic acid boosts the power of all other supplements you are taking. Other claims:
Vanadyl Sulfate –Vanadyl sulfate is the biologically active form of vanadium, a trace mineral that mimics the action of the hormone insulin in the body, thereby lowering serum glucose levels. It is effective in normalizing blood sugar levels controlling conditions such as insulin resistance. This enables some diabetics to use less insulin, or stop taking insulin altogether. The form of vanadium used by most doctors to lower serum glucose levels is vanadyl sulfate which is well assimilated by the digestive system.
Recommended use: One capsule twice a day
Improves insulin resistance, lowers serum glucose levels, controls hunger, reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels, supports cardiovascular health.
Proteolytic enzymes are involved in almost every metabolic process in the human body. Many people use proteolytic enzymes as non-drug all-natural and safe support to protect all organs of the body, including skin, kidneys, and liver, from scarring. Enzymes are proteins in living organisms that catalyze most chemical reactions. Enzymes are responsible for every bodily function. Even thinking requires enzymes. All living organisms (bacteria, fungi, plants, animals) manufacture high amounts of different enzymes. There are two primary classes of enzymes: metabolic and digestive.
Metabolic enzymes are responsible for the structuring, repair and remodeling of every cell and tissue. The body is often stressed to supply sufficient enzymes for optimal health. Digestive enzymes function as biological catalysts in our food, helping to break down protein (proteinases), carbohydrates (amylases) and fats (lipases).
Inflammazyme relieves symptoms of gastrointestinal distress such as fullness, bloating, pain and cramping which occurs after eating. When given to those with sprained ankles, there was less swelling, less pain, more mobility of the ankle joint and a quicker return to normal functioning. When given preceding and following the surgical treatment of fractures, there was a significant reduction in post-op swelling, pain and hospital stay. When taken with meals, it reduces the symptoms of food sensitivity & aid digestion. Inflammazyme is also useful with pancreatic insufficiency & malabsorption syndrome. It is an anti-inflammatory and beneficial to help the following:
- Diabetes (type 1 and 2)
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Sports injuries
- Leg ulcer
- Multiple sclerosis
Taking digestive enzymes while you are eating or just after you have eaten will help to digest your food. Taking digestive enzymes on an empty stomach will help break up cholesterol deposits and reduce inflammation.
Anti-inflammatory, reduces food sensitivity, relieves gastrointestinal distress, bloating, pain and cramping.
Platt PRO 5% Progesterone Cream with Lavender Essential Oil
The Platt PRO 5% with Lavender Essential Oil has a clean odor (not a fragrance) and disappears into the skin in about 30 seconds. Lavender Essential Oil is known to have a natural calming effect.
The major benefit of this cream is that it has been specially formulated to provide maximal effectiveness. In this regard, it has the exact strength needed to block the toxic effects of estrogen, insulin, and adrenaline.
Platt PRO has a 5% strength, which means that one pump provides 50 mg of progesterone. To gain insight into some of the actions of progesterone, please refer to the Progesterone Information below.
After it is applied, progesterone only lasts for about 5-6 minutes in the bloodstream because it is quickly picked up by receptor sites.
Since it is so short acting, the best time to use progesterone is 1-3 minutes before eating. The most important time of day to use progesterone is before lunch. Insulin levels are the highest in the afternoon, which, of course, is why many people get sleepy between 3-4PM. Please keep in mind that when sugar levels drop, the body will be releasing adrenaline to raise the sugar levels back up.
Strength: 50 mg per pump
Apply 1 pump to the inside of one forearm and rub forearms together. Or apply to the back of the neck if there is tension.
For those with increased adrenaline, we recommend using the cream 1-3 minutes before meals in order to control insulin levels.
Do this up to four times a day. When symptoms of increased adrenaline are abated, you can reduce applications to 2-3 times a day.
If you have trouble sleeping at night, it is recommended that you eat a low-glycemic carbohydrate just before going to bed. In addition, apply the cream again just before eating your bedtime snack.
Progesterone provides benefits to both men and women in three major areas. The first area is its well-known effect in women as the hormone that helps block the detrimental effects of estrogen. In this regard, it helps prevent menstrual cramps, breast tenderness, and PMS in those women who are menstruating, along with fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, and fibrocystic disease of the breast. It also eliminates other problems caused by estrogen such as asthma, migraine headaches, and morning sickness. In addition, it helps to prevent all cancers caused by estrogen, such as cancers of the breast, uterus, ovaries, cervix, colon, and the prostate in men.
The second major area of benefit from using progesterone is the effect it has on insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is associated with the causation of obesity as well as type II diabetes and its many complications. It is a fact that insulin raises blood pressure and is felt to be a major influence in speeding up the aging process. Progesterone blocks insulin receptor sites on cells, thereby helping to eliminate drops in blood sugar (hypoglycemia). As a result, it prevents sleepiness after eating, between 3 and 4 PM, and while driving. This ability to block the effects of insulin also helps with weight loss.
The third major area of benefit of using progesterone is that it blocks the action and over-production of adrenaline. Adrenaline is popularly known as “the-fight-or-flight” hormone, and excess levels can create anger, road rage, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and teeth grinding. When anger is internalized, it can lead to depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, IBS, plus other problems. As a neurotransmitter in the brain, adrenaline can cause the mind to race which can cause problems with focusing – i.e. ADHD, or “brain fog”. It also causes urinary urgency in adults as well as bed-wetting in children. Adrenaline is probably the number one cause of unexplained weight gain. Leg cramps at night are also caused by adrenaline, and can usually be relieved within 30-60 seconds when progesterone is applied to the area of cramping.
Other benefits: 1) it can have a significant effect on the lowering of blood pressure, 2) it can help infertile women get pregnant, 3) it can prevent or treat postpartum depression, and 4) it is beneficial for relieving peripheral neuropathy.
