Improve your Health with Diaxinol


A Natural Supplement that Supports Optimal Cardiovascular Health.

Maintaining already normal range blood sugar levels has become one of the biggest health priorities. The natural components found in Diaxinol have shown a remarkable success rate for individuals striving for optimal health.

Proven Ingredients, Natural Synergistic Formulation.

Our natural Diaxinol is a leading-edge supplement for cardiovascular health and glucose levels support, combining well-studied natural ingredients and appropriate dosages. The ingredients included in Diaxinol are of the utmost quality, and formulations are made with safety in mind.

Buy Diaxinol now on BuyOMP

The Following Natural Ingredients are Present in Diaxinol:

•Biotin for Healthy Blood Glucose Levels
Biotin is an essential B vitamin, meaning humans cannot make their own biotin; therefore, it must be ingested through the diet. Biotin has often been overlooked in the support of healthy blood glucose levels. Biotin has been found to enhance insulin sensitivity and improve glucose and insulin tolerances. Biotin has been shown to support glycolysis in the liver and pancreas by its promotion of the enzyme, glucokinase. Biotin is a key player for persons needing support for glucose uptake.

•Chromium for Cardiovascular Health
Chromium is a key constituent in the molecule known as glucose tolerance factor (GTF). GTF facilitates the uptake of glucose into cells, working naturally, in conjunction with the body’s own insulin. Research has concluded that non-insulin dependent diabetic patients have a compromised chromium status, when compared to healthy controls. Most multivitamins provide 200 mcg of chromium, but additional chromium may be needed for those wanting to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

•Gymnema Sylvestre for Diabetic Health
Gymnema sylvestre is a woody plant that is found in the tropical forests of India and in parts of Africa. Extracts of gymnema have been used world-wide for numerous health benefits. Its beneficial properties are thought to reside in a group of compounds called gymnemic acids. The leaves of Gymnema sylvestre have been studied for their role in diabetic health. Gymnema extracts are associated with increased pancreatic function and insulin release.

•Lipoic Acid for Optimal Blood Sugar Levels
Lipoic acid, once known as thioctic acid, is considered one of the most versatile antioxidants. Lipoic acid is able to recharge the antioxidants vitamin e, ascorbic acid, and glutathione. Lipoic acid is one of the most beneficial nutrients for those seeking to achieve optimal range blood sugars. Lipoic acid modulates glucose and insulin sensitivities. It also acts as an antioxidant, maintaing microcirculation and decreasing oxidative stress, the main stimulus for diabetic complications. Lipoic acid has been used successfully for over 30 years in Germany.

•Cinnamon (Cinnulin®) for Glucose Support
Cinnamon is widely used for glucose support. Research has found that cinnamon is beneficial in decreasing fasting glucose levels and has beneficial effects on cardiovascular health. In human studies cinnamon has been shown to lower blood sugar and improve insulin resistance. Studies have also found improvements in fasting blood sugar levels after cinnamon supplementation. Components known as Type A Polymers have been found to give cinnamon its beneficial properties as well as it’s glucose supporting activity.

•Vanadyl Sulfate for Cardiovascular Health
Vanadium has been found to have insulin mimetic properties. It has been used clinically to help manage serum glucose levels. Functioning much like chromium, research has revealed that vanadyl sulfate acts to help cells activate transport proteins for glucose uptake. Scientific quantities of vanadyl sulfate have shown significant benefits for individuals in controlled studies. In some people, these benefits were sustained for as long as 2 weeks after discontinuation of vanadyl sulfate.

A Word About Lifestyle and Optimal Health
The evolution inadequate diets and poor exercise habits have wreaked havoc on our bodies. Following these guidelines will go a long way toward ensuring optimal health and wellness in persons concerned about the now-common components of unhealthy diets:

•Exercise regularly
•Avoid processed foods, regardless of their protein:carb ratio
•Avoid trans-fatty acids and increase omega-3 fatty acids as well as GLA
•Increase dietary fiber for proper assimilation
•Test for commonly allergenic foods (dairy, gluten, etc.)
•Avoid refined sugar in all its forms
•Avoid alcohol
•Stay off artificial sweeteners such as aspartame (natural alternatives include stevia and xylitol)
•Drink plenty of purified water
•Do not assume anything-Read all the labels of the foods you buy (not only the nutritious facts)
