With approximately 7 million new cases developed each year, diabetes is quickly becoming one of the most prevalent diseases in the world. Diabetes is classified as a metabolic disease – it affects the maintenance of energy within the body. Caused by the inability to create enough insulin, diabetes results in the failure of cells to ingest natural sugars. Glucose must remain in the bloodstream of people with diabetes – they cannot extract its nutritional value. They do not receive sufficient energy, and must depend on injections of insulin to survive.
The immediate symptoms of diabetes include:
· Fatigue · Frequent urination · Elevated thirst · Intense hunger · Irritability · Numbness · Sudden weight loss · Trouble seeing
Long term diabetes can result in:
· Damage to the nervous system
· Heart disease
In Canada alone, diabetes contributes to 41,500 yearly deaths.
Unfortunately there is no cure for diabetes yet. However, there are steps you can take to prevent this life altering disease.
How Can I Protect My Body Against Diabetes?
The most effective way to prevent diabetes is to keep your body healthy. It’s proven that those at risk for type 2 diabetes can reduce their risk by 58% by living a balanced life style. This includes exercising regularly and eating healthy. However, in today’s mile-a-minute society it can be difficult to find the time to pay attention to your body.
Because of the lack of quality in much of the food available now, even the few who attempt to monitor their diet may still be lacking essential vitamins and minerals. Dr. Linus Pauling notes, “Nearly every disease can be linked to a mineral deficiency.”
Everyone – particularly those at risk for diabetes – should be more concerned with their health. Particularly what we eat.
If only there was a solution that could satisfy our need for speed without weakening our immune systems and raising our risk for diabetes…
Something that combined convenience and quality.
Supplement, supplement, supplement!
Supplements are becoming more and more popular, with good reason! Because of mineral depleted soils, it’s becoming nearly impossible to provide our bodies with the nutrition they need with food alone.
You spend all your time in your body; your health is your key to life. Why not do everything you can to protect it?
Let your health be an asset to your success, rather than a challenge.
