Ortho Glucose 2
Ortho-Glucose II is AOR’s premium blood sugar balance formula, containing the most well-researched nutrients and plant extracts studied in humans with hyperglycemia including bitter melon, Gymnema sylvestre, R lipoic acid, chromium picolinate and cinnamon extract. Ortho•Glucose II supports healthy blood sugar metabolism and may help reduce the symptoms of hyperglycemia. Hyperglycemia increases the risk of many serious health complications including cardiovascular disease, retinal damage, blindness, neuropathy and many others. The ingredients in Ortho•Glucose II have been shown to enhance the activity of insulin, improve the cellular uptake of glucose, and possibly promote the pancreas to produce more insulin. Ortho•Glucose II also reduces the risk of complications resulting from chronic high blood sugar levels such as numbness and tingling in the fingers and toes, high cholesterol and heart disease.
Who should use Ortho Glucose 2?
The incidence of diabetes is rapidly increasing and in 2005, 7% of the United States population had diabetes. The prevalence of the disease increases with age.
In type 1 diabetes, the immune system is attacking the pancreas's insulin-producing cells. This leads to the inability to produce adequate levels of insulin and without the presence of insulin, blood sugar levels rise uncontrollably. Type 1 diabetes sufferers require additional insulin to regulate their blood glucose levels. Type 1 diabetes is typically diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood. Unfortunately, the cause remains unclear.
Type 2 diabetes usually develops in late adulthood and although insulin production may be compromised later in the course of type 2 diabetes, the condition is primarily the result of increased insulin resistance. Insulin resistance refers to the inability of our cells to respond to insulin even when normal levels of insulin are present. Once cells become insulin resistant, glucose cannot enter cells and blood glucose levels rise. Type 2 diabetes is far more common, comprising 90% of diabetic patients.
