Can a simple amino acid solve your blood-sugar problems?

I'm always on the lookout for ways to help those with blood-sugar problems. Diabetes is epidemic. I always start with diet, as it can solve the problem in most cases. But there are some cases where supplements can be of assistance. And researchers recently found that one of my favorite amino acids offers significant improvements in insulin metabolism.

Researchers gave mice taurine for 30 days and then assessed blood sugar balance with a glucose tolerance test. They also studied the effect taurine had on the insulin-producing islet cells.

But here's the great news. Taurine supplementation greatly increased insulin content in their islet cells. The glucose tolerance test improved significantly; with better insulin control. Even the genes controlling blood sugar became more active.

Taurine also improved insulin metabolism in skeletal muscle and liver tissue by improving the function of insulin receptors. That's crucial in type-2 diabetes where excess fat in the body impairs the receptors. That means it increases insulin sensitivity. This is a big breakthrough for metabolic syndrome.

There is no greater fix for metabolic syndrome or type-2 diabetes than controlling your weight and losing visceral fat. Short of that, supplements can aid insulin metabolism. Please consider adding 500 mg three times daily of taurine to your supplement regimen. It is a fabulous free-radical scavenger for heart and brain cells. Now it's found to also help your islet cells as well. Taurine is widely available at most health food stores or online.
