Glupride Multi is a unique vitamin/herbal formula designed to promote healthy glucos elevels already within the normal range.
Glupride Multi is formulated by Sarfraz Zaidi, MD, a respected Endocrinologist, an expert in the field of Diabetes and Insulin Resistance Syndrome as well as author of two diabetes books, "Take Charge Of Your Diabetes" and "Reverse Your Type 2 Diabetes Scientifically."
Dr. Zaidi is a physician certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is the medical director of the Jamila Diabetes & Endocrine Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, California. He frequently lectures other physicians and has written an instructional CD-ROM for physicians.
Dr. Zaidi reviews scientific studies regarding the role of vitamins and herbs in the treatment of diabetes.
Vitamins and minerals are essential for the normal metabolism of our body. Endocrinologists are expert in the field of metabolism. They understand which vitamins and minerals are beneficial for the normal functioning of the body.
Ingredients in GLUPRIDE Multi
Glupride Multi id a high potency mutivitamin which contains 21 different vitamins, minerals and herbs. It contains Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Chromium Picolinate, Cinnamon and Coenzyme Q 10 in addition to B vitamins, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and essential minerals including Selenium, Zinc, Vanadium and Magnesium.
Alpha-lipoic acid is normally produced in cells in small amounts and helps in the normal metabolism of glucose. Alpha-lipoic acid functions as a strong anti-oxidant in the body (1, 2).*
A number of scientific studies have shown that alpha-lipoic acid promotes normal insulin sensitivity and thus may promote healthy glucos elevels (2).*
Several studies have also shown alpha-lipoic acid to be helpful in promoting nerve health in humans (3).*
In Germany, Alpha-lipoic acid has been used for over 30 years. The amount of Alpha-lipoic acid is important! In these studies, the amount used was 600-1800 mg per day. We use a dose of 600 mg per day in Glupride Multi.
Chromium picolinate is required for the normal metabolism of glucose. Several studies have shown beneficial effects of chromium supplementation in promoting healty glucose levels.*
One large clinical trial tested chromium picolinate in 833 Type 2 diabetic patients and found a significant improvement in their blood glucose values (4).
The amount of chromium picolinate is also important. Many multivitamins contain only a small amount of chromium picolinate. In contrast, we use a large dose of 600 mcg per day as was used in these clinical studies.
Physicians have long been intrigued by the beneficial effects of cinnamon to support healthy glucose levels.
In December 2003, an excellent scientific study was published in Diabetes Care, (5) in which cinnamon powder was used in 60 patients with Type 2 diabetes. Three daily doses, 1 gram, 3 grams and 6 grams were used. There was a decrease in blood glucose by 18-29%. Serum triglycerides also decreased by 23-30%. Patients consuming 6 grams of cinnamon powder per day appeared to have achieved results earlier (at 20 days), but at 40 days, all doses had the same efficacy in lowering blood glucose and triglycerides level.
Coenzyme Q10 is a strong antioxidant. It may help to improve diastolic dysfunction of the heart in patients with hypertension.
Statin drugs such as Lipitor (atorvastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Pravachol (pravastatin), Mevacor (lovastatin) and Crestor (rosuvastatin) are commonly used in diabetic patients. Unfortunately, these drugs not only reduce cholesterol level, but also may reduce CoQ10 level in the muscles as was demonstrated in a recent study from investigators at Columbia University in the U.S. (6). This phenomenon may explain the muscle aches these patients often experience while on a statin drug. Co Q10 may help to prevent these muscle aches and pains.
Selenium, Zinc and Magnesium have all been shown to be support healthy glucose levels.*
