You watch your diet and exercise, yet your blood sugar levels can still rise as you age. And to counteract the problem you have to deal with a number of issues. Now you can effectively address this issue with a multi-pronged approach.\n\n\u003cstrong\u003eBenefits at a Glance:\u003c\/strong\u003e\n\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSupports the natural balance of key glucose pathways\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBalances the rate of sugar manufacture in the liver (gluconeogenesis)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ePromotes insulin sensitivity\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eInhibits glucose absorption by decreasing the activity of sugar digesting enzymes\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eDiminishes glucose reabsorption from the kidneys\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\n\u003cstrong\u003eSupports the natural balance of key glucose pathways\u003c\/strong\u003e\n\nBlood sugar levels can rise due to a number of factors including excess gluconeogenesis whereby the liver produces glucose from protein.\u003csup\u003e1-3\u003c\/sup\u003e Another issue is the rapid conversion of any starch, including whole grains, into glucose.\u003csup\u003e4,5\u003c\/sup\u003e The result is that even health-conscious people can experience higher-than-desired blood sugar levels as they age.\n\nTri Sugar Shield® is a unique formulation that improves glucose metabolism through several different pathways, including balancing the rate of sugar manufacture in the liver,\u003csup\u003e6\u003c\/sup\u003e promoting insulin sensitivity,\u003csup\u003e7,8\u003c\/sup\u003e decreasing the activity of sugar digesting enzymes in the gut,\u003csup\u003e9-11\u003c\/sup\u003e and by targeting carrier proteins in the kidney that diminishes glucose reabsorption into the circulation.\u003csup\u003e12-15\u003c\/sup\u003e\n\n\u003cstrong\u003eSorghum Bran Extract Modulates Four Mechanisms\u003c\/strong\u003e\n\nSorghum has long been cultivated in Asia (and now is grown in Africa, India, China, Australia, and the USA) and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, among those in the normal range, by modulating four different mechanisms:\n\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBalances the rate of sugar manufacture in the liver (gluconeogenesis).\u003csup\u003e6\u003c\/sup\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ePromotes insulin sensitivity.\u003csup\u003e7\u003c\/sup\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eRegulates PPAR-gamma, a metabolic thermostat supporting glucose metabolism. \u003csup\u003e7,16,17\u003c\/sup\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eRegulates the enzyme alpha-amylase, which in turn maintains the release of sugar found in starch.\u003csup\u003e9,18,19\u003c\/sup\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\n\u003cstrong\u003eMulberry Leaf Extract Controls Three Mechanisms\u003c\/strong\u003e\n\nMulberry leaf has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for centuries.
