With every meal that we eat, our bodies break down the carbohydrate portion of the meal into simple sugars, such as glucose, which can then be used for energy or stored as fat for a later time. Unfortunately, a poor diet and lifestyle can lead to poorly controlled blood sugar, impaired insulin production and eventually type 2 diabetes. High blood sugar or hyperglycemia is a risk factor for almost every degenerative disease, especially cardiovascular diseases. It produces inflammation, toxins and damage to the cells of the body which accelerates aging, weight gain, skin disorders and reduces life span.
Ortho•Glucose II is AOR’s premium blood sugar balance formula, containing the most well-researched nutrients and plant extracts studied in patients 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, or high blood sugar, 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 promote pancreatic function 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.
