BLOOD SUGAR™ – Multiple Mechanisms of Action – Sugar and in particular glucose come from the foods that we eat and is the main source of energy required by the liver, fat and skeletal muscle cells. Circulating levels of glucose in the blood (“blood sugar”) are regulated by insulin produced by the pancreas. Insulin helps breakdown glucose to be used by the cells and thus removes it from circulation. If the pancreas does not produce enough insulin then glucose remains and builds up in the blood. High levels of blood sugar over an extended period of time can be detrimental to overall health. More than 100 million U.S. adults (> 20yo) have elevated blood sugar levels and in 2012, the total direct and indirect estimated cost of diagnosed high blood sugar levels in the United States was $245 billion.
