Diabetes

TYPE 2 DIABETES IS THE MOST COMMON FORM OF DIABETES.
In type 2 diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use glucose for energy. When you eat food, the body breaks down all of the sugars and starches into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells in the body. Insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells.

When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it can cause two problems:
1. Right away, your cells may be starved for energy.
2. Over time, high blood glucose levels may hurt your eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart.

Some groups have a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes than others. Type 2 diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, as well as the aged population.

UNICITYBALANCE G – BLOOD SUGAR MANAGEMENT
(NOTE: BIOS LIFE SLIM HAS A NEW NAME! UNICITYBALANCE & UNICITYBALANCE G
The Biosphere Fiber in UNICITYBALANCE moderates blood glucose (sugar) levels in both Type 2 Diabetics & Pre Diabetics through two mechanisms:

1. It delays the absorption of glucose, so your blood sugar does not reach extreme levels. This relieves stress on the pancreas, and allows it to produce the correct amount of insulin to facilitate glucose absorption into your cells. The same amount of glucose is eventually absorbed – it just takes more time to absorb it.

2. Biosphere Fiber also moderates glucose levels by changing the glycemic index of the food. Some foods cause a high level of blood sugar, while others cause a low level of blood sugar. The interaction of Bios Life™ with the food reduces the overall level of blood glucose levels, and spreads out glucose absorption over a longer period of time.
