That title is a lot to unpack, so here’s a quick primer for you:
A sustained high fat diet is no good for anyone because it can lead to many undesirable effects.
Dietary protein is especially important for older folks and people with wounds trying to heal (including surgical).
That high fat diet can induce what is referred to as “fat-induced anabolic resistance to protein ingestion”. In other words, even if you take protein supplements, the high fat diet prevents the protein from getting to where it needs to be.
The good news is that exercise helps overcome this (link here)!
More good news is the antioxidants found in RedOx+ helps the oxidative stress from workouts (links here and here) and maximize results/minimize damage!
Even more good news is that we will be unveiling a new formulation that includes protein sometime soon!
Many Type 2 diabetics also have what is known as metabolic syndrome – characterized by high blood pressure, high blood glucose, excess abdominal fat, and high cholesterol/triglycerides. It has been recently found that higher vitamin E levels are beneficial to those patients (link here).
RedOx+ has 300 IU of Vitamin E per daily serving, so we have you covered!
One of the central antioxidants found in RedOx+ is important for diabetic treatment for several reasons. In addition to its antioxidant ability, it has been shown to improve glucose uptake by cells. We are also in the process of determining how the lipoic acid is lowering advanced glycation end products (usually measured as HbA1c levels).
Furthermore, the other components of RedOx+ enhance the ability of lipoic acid to maintain optimal activity. The combination and ratios in the RedOx+ formula is what makes RedOx+ the premier diabetic supplement.
First time users of RedOx+ might encounter a possible harmless, but surprising, side effect: Niacin Flush. This “flush” is exactly what is sounds like. The face and neck and sometimes top of the chest/back turn red and feels hot and sensitive. It seems like an allergic reaction, but isn’t. It will subside on it’s own after an hour or two.
For those not aware of this phenomenon, high dose niacin (like that found in RedOx+) is often prescribed as a first line treatment of high cholesterol. It is fairly common on the first dose to experience Niacin Flush. These symptoms diminish after you take the RedOx+ in the following days.
If you experience this issue, we recommend taking half scoops for the first few days until your body gets used to it, then go to full doses.
Remember that the vitamins are not only useful to you, but also to the flora in the gut. So, when they are fed a nutrient-rich diet, they will also grow faster.
A small number of customers have noticed a small side effect from the first time taking RedOx+: diarrhea. This effect goes away after a few doses.
So, keep this in mind when first trying RedOx+. Also, we feel this may provide a long term positive effect on pre- and probiotics. Therefore, we have no reservation recommending probiotics taken with RedOx+.
Recent evidence indicates that the likelihood of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease is lower in people with diets rich in antioxidants, particularly vitamin E RedOx+ contains not only vitamin E, but also lipoic acid, coQ10 and vitamin C, which all help regenerate the antioxidant function of vitamin E.
We recommend taking daily RedOx+ supplementation to optimize antioxidant effects.
Recent evidence shows that long term Type 2 diabetes is associated with cognitive brain decline. Many other lines of research have shown that oxidative damage is at least one culprit in many brain-related maladies, such as autism and depression. As outlined in our recent publication, high glucose levels lead to oxidative damage. RedOx+ contains the antioxidant power you need to combat this oxidation damage.
Recent evidence shows that sustained treatment of Type 2 diabetes by sulfonylureas such as glyburide, glipizide, glimepiride, Amaryl, Diabeta, Glucotrol, Glynase, or Micronase lead to increased chance of heart disease.
As outlined in our recent publication, treatment of diabetes with drugs such as these deplete the important antioxidant, coQ10. Supplementation with RedOx+ contains coQ10 as well as other antioxidants that help coQ10 perform optimally. As always, we recommend taking daily RedOx+ for pre-diabetic, untreated diabetic, and treated diabetic conditions.
The difference is the dosing and synergistic blend of molecules FOUND NATURALLY in our diet used by our bodies.
Although most components are included for general well-being such as vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D & E, Biotin, Beta Carotene, Calcium, Zinc, Selenium, and Iron. Dosing was chosen based on a thorough review of vitamins implicated in positive diabetic outcomes.
