Type-2 diabetes is one of the most prevalent diseases in the world, affecting approximately 100 million Americans. It is characterized by a condition called insulin resistance, where the body cannot effectively use the hormone insulin to bring glucose (blood sugar) into the cells and muscles for energy. This causes glucose to accumulate in the blood at higher than normal levels, putting people’s health in danger.
Stress Impacts Insulin
Stress can interfere with our body’s ability to allow insulin to do its job. When we are under chronic stress, the body is producing high levels of cortisol. High cortisol blocks insulin function causing large fluctuations in blood sugar levels which leads to an imbalanced metabolism.
Mitochondria Fun Facts
Per Dr. Shawn Talbott, Chief Science Officer of Amare Global.
- The mitochondria are very similar to the microbiome in our gut with its trillions of bacteria. Millions of years ago, the mitochondria were free living bacteria with which our bodies co-evolved.
- At the present time, mitochondria are not bacteria, they are organelles inside our cells that generate energy. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell, responsible for cell metabolism.
- If your metabolism is unbalanced because your insulin is blocked, oxidative stress is the end result. This stress triggers a cascade of metabolic reactions at the cellular level which can lead to cellular damage.
Support Your Metabolism
Amare Global offers natural nutrition to help reduce oxidative stress while improving your metabolisim, energy, and focus. Amare products help to normalize the gut-brain axis where the signaling and communication is taking place between the tissues and the cells. The goal is to lower cortisol levels so that insulin can do its job.
People report back: “I’m losing weight”, “My appetite is changing”, and “I don’t feel this drive toward junk food anymore.”
- MentaBiotics – Key ingredient is Suntheanine which helps to lower cortisol levels.
- MOOD – Key ingredient is Ashwagandha by Sensoril which calms the entire nervous system.
- VitaGBX – The phytonutrients activate a series of cellular defense responses (CDRs) that reduce oxidative stress.
How It Works
Metabolism has a cascade effect throughout our entire body. From a metabolic perspective, Amare’s products help to establish proper metabolism at the cellular level first by reducing the oxidative and inflammatory stress. Once cellular function is optimized, the microbiome can be enhanced to improve stamina and well-being.
