20 Oct Exploring the Benefits of GlucoControl from Prolean Wellness: Part 3 of 3
In this third and final part of a three-part series that explores the ingredients of GlucoControl and their benefits, we will take a closer look at Biotin and how it is beneficial to your overall health as well as helping to regulate your blood sugar levels.
What is Biotin?
Also known as vitamin B7, Biotin is a vitamin that is found naturally in a variety of foods, including bananas, eggs and milk. The vitamin plays an essential role in helping the enzymes in your body break down certain substances, such as carbohydrates and fats.
While there is not a good test to accurately test if your Biotin levels are low, certain signs and symptoms can help to identify a Biotin deficiency. These include thinning hair and a red scaly rash around your nose, eyes and mouth. Due to the effects that Biotin has on the hair and skin, Biotin supplements are frequently used to help combat hair loss as well as issues with brittle nails.
How Does Biotin Help with Blood Sugar Levels?
Biotin is included as an ingredient with GlucoControl due to the benefits that it provides with helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It does this by offering the following benefits:
- Increasing insulin sensitivity, which helps to decrease insulin levels
- Reducing homocystein
- Reducing HA1c
- Helping to maintain normal glucose levels
As with any supplement or vitamin, you should always consult with a doctor before taking Biotin supplements or using GlucoControl from Prolean Wellness. It is also important to note that taking Biotin supplements can potentially interfere with certain lab tests. Therefore, you should let you doctor know that you are taking this supplement or any other supplement that contains Biotin before you have blood tests completed. Similarly, GlucoControl should never be used in place of medications for diabetes and the supplement is not meant to be used to control the health condition. Rather, it is intended to be used by those who wish to help level out their blood sugar levels after having an occasional sugary treat or carb-rich meal. Contact Prolean Wellness today to learn more!
