11 Oct Exploring the Benefits of GlucoControl from Prolean Wellness: Part 2 of 3
In this second of a two-part series on GlucoControl from Prolean Wellness, we will further explore the second main ingredient in this beneficial supplement: ALA.
What is ALA?
ALA, or Alpha Lipoic Acid, is an antioxidant that your body makes naturally, but is also found in foods. Foods where ALA is commonly found include red meats, beets, carrots, broccoli, spinach and potatoes. The body uses ALA to naturally break down carbohydrates in order to make energy.
ALA is commonly used in supplements for a variety of different purposes. For example, there is evidence to show that ALA may be beneficial in providing protection to the brain and may also help with certain liver diseases. ALA is also frequently used to address nerve pain in people with diabetes and it may also be helpful in combatting altitude sickness and obesity. Some use ALA supplements to assist with maintaining proper cholesterol levels, while other use it to help slow down the signs of aging in their skin.
How Does ALA Assist with Glucose Control?
ALA is included as an ingredient in GlucoControl due to its benefits in terms of helping to control glucose levels. Specific ways that GlucoControl helps in this matter include:
- Normalizing glucose levels
- Improving insulin sensitivity
- Providing support to your body’s liver detox pathways
- Promoting normal thyroid hormone levels
- Helping to repair damaged blood vessels
- Improving neural function in diabetes
Of course, even with these known benefits of ALA, it is always important to talk to a doctor before starting any new supplements, especially if you have any known health conditions. Also, it is important to note that GlucoControl should not be used by diabetics as a means of controlling diabetes. Rather, it is intended to be used by those who like to have an occasional sugary snack or carb-heavy meal and would like to give their body some help to process it.
