|Maintaining a healthy blood sugar range has a significant impact on an individual‘s health, quality of life and life expectancy. Our blood glucose levels can affect how hungry and how energetic we feel and determine whether we burn fat or store it.
Above normal blood glucose levels - a state also called pre-diabetes - are extremely common. As many as 40 % of 40-74 year olds are estimated to have the condition in the US and over 60 million in Europe. Thirty percent of the people with pre-diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes, a metabolic disorder affecting an estimated 150 million individuals worldwide. Persistently elevated concentrations of glucose in the blood negatively affect the health of blood vessels, the heart and nerves and are related to increased appetite.
Physical activity, weight control and healthy eating habits are essential and effective means of maintaining a healthy blood glucose range. Due to its triple mode of action on blood glucose metabolism, PortusanaTM supports healthy lifestyle measures, helping to regulate blood sugar levels. In stabilizing blood glucose concentration PortusanaTM might help to control blood glucose-related appetite and protect the body from negative effects resulting from high blood sugar levels.
