Glycemic Foundation

Glycemic Foundation

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

A steady blood sugar level is the one factor that every person who lives over 100 years old has in common. Orthomolecular created Glycemic Foundation using a unique blend of ingredients to help to maintain and support healthy blood sugar levels. One specific ingredient found in this product is Lipoic Acid which is a highly beneficial nutrient for individuals looking to maintain steady blood sugar levels. Vanadyl Sulfate, also found in Glycemic Foundation, has insulin-like activities promoting glucose uptake into cells. Another ingredient, Chromium, also promotes the uptake of glucose into cells which will work alongside the body’s own insulin production allowing for maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels. This product, coming in powder form, is meant to be mixed in a liquid of your choice. Because this product has brown rice protein in it, we recommend that you do not mix this powder with fruit due to the combination of grains and fruits together being troublesome for proper digestion.  Another highly effective product created by Orthomolecular! Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement.

Orthomolecular Vitamin D

Orthomolecular Vitamin D

Dietary Needs:
None

Vitamin D is commonly known as “the sunshine vitamin” due to the fact that our bodies can synthesize it when exposed to the sun. However, many people are deficient in vitamin D even when exposed to high amounts of sun.  This is because our bodies must convert vitamin D to the active form and that conversion is regulated by the parathyroid hormone, calcium, and phosphorus. Vitamin D is proven to promote bone health because it transports calcium into the bone, and without it, calcium will not be properly absorbed. Without the sufficient amounts of each vitamin and mineral our bodies cannot function at its optimum level. Vitamin D3 is the superior form so supplementing with a good quality vitamin D like this product by Orthomolecular is essential. Vitamin D has also been shown to maintain cardiovascular function and promote immune function. Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Consult your health care practitioner or physician prior to starting a new supplement.
