All the ingredients in GlucoEnsure MD have a component that helps to decrease inflammation in the body. Some act as direct antioxidants and others can activate powerful pathways in the body that are our natural antioxidant system. In addition, many of the ingredients have been proven to decrease triglyceride levels in the blood. The combination of inflammation and high triglycerides causes plaques and narrowing of blood vessels. As this occurs, the blood vessels begin to stiffen and blood pressure rises, causing damage to organs and tissues throughout the body. Several of the ingredients in the formulation have decreased triglycerides by as much as 40% in some clinical studies. Further, powerful genetic pathways are activated, such as PON1, which can heal damage to arteries and reverse the damage caused by inflammation. Another powerful genetic pathway that is activated is the Nrf2 pathway, which is the bodies built in system to rid the body of dangerous free radicals and the inflammation they cause.
