D-Chiro-Inositol (DCI) is a sugar alcohol complex that is naturally occurring in the body. It acts as a significant secondary messenger in cells and is responsible for key biological processes including:
- Improving insulin signaling (glucose uptake)*
- Increasing glycogen utilization (intracellular energy)*
- mTOR down regulation and breakdown of fats*
- Help regulate inflammatory stress and modulate serotonin activity.*
Due to genetic weaknesses, the conversion of myo-inositol to DCI can be a challenge and sugar does not get disposed of quickly. This abnormality is known as insulin resistance. DCI, along with essential nutrient cofactors, assists with insulin signaling and cellular energy.*
Contains 300mg per dose of D-Chiro-Inositol and 4 amazing nutrient co-factors for ultimate support.
How Metabolism Works
Metabolism is the internal process by which the body converts the food and nutrients you consume into energy it needs to maintain basic functions. When food is ingested, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, entering the bloodstream. This causes the pancreas to release insulin, a hormone which allows the cells to absorb glucose in the blood to be used for fuel and energy. There are many factors that determine an individual’s metabolism including body size and composition, gender, diet, age, and gene makeup. The amount of insulin available in the body can also affect a person’s metabolism. If cells begin resisting the effects of insulin, the pancreas attempt to compensate by producing more. If insulin resistance continues, blood sugar levels rise, increasing the risk of developing serious health conditions.
Facts About Insulin Resistance
Glucose levels are highly controlled by insulin. In addition to inducing the intake of glucose by the cells, insulin helps keep a steady level of glucose in the blood by signaling to the liver and muscle tissue to store excess amounts as glycogen. When cells cannot appropriately absorb glucose, it builds up in the blood, leading to health complications. Due to genetic weaknesses, certain individuals are more susceptible to developing insulin resistance. Insulin resistance accompanied by persistently higher glucose levels can affect an individual’s health. As a result, Neurobiologix has developed a new metabolic support formula to help regulate glucose levels and support insulin functions. Our pharmaceutical grade supplement contains a unique combination of natural nutrients to assist with maintaining appropriate cellular energy levels. With the help of D-Chiro-Inositol (DCI) and 4 other nutrient cofactors, our Metabolic Stimulator formula can improve glucose uptake, increase intracellular energy, and provide ultimate support to your metabolism.
