BROOKLYN (Workers World Today) – Diabetes is one of the top ten deadliest diseases in the United States. According to the Center for Disease Control, Diabetes has killed roughly 80,058 people in 2017. That number may be significantly higher because Diabetes often leads to other ailments, like kidney disease, and therefore causes of death may be attributed to other ailments and not directly to Diabetes. People who are already battling diabetes find themselves at the mercy of insulin shots and prescription drugs with uncomfortable side effects. After consulting their doctor, some diabetic patients have sought to improve their treatment by using supplements, like Captavida.
Rehenia Perry migrated to the United States from Panama in the 1970s and worked as a nurse for over 15 years. She is also a diabetic. In an interview, Ms. Perry said that she suffered from bleeding in the back of her eye and was taking medication prescribed by her doctor. After consulting with her doctor, she began using Captavida as a supplement. She exclaimed, “I no longer have bleeding in my eye and my doctor said that I have 20/20 vision!” She started using the product four months ago. She also said that since using Captavida, her blood sugar levels dropped from over 200 mg/dL to 99 mg/dL for the first time since being a diabetic.
Captavida is a supplement that aims to regulate glucose levels. Some of its active ingredients are Berberine Hydrochloride and Bitter melon extract. The ingredient, Berberine Hydrochloride is commonly used in China and is derived from herbs such as GoldenSeal and Chinese Goldthread as indicated in the Natural Medicine Journal. The peer reviewed manuscript, Metabolism: clinical and experimental has reported that multiple studies on the effects of berberine in treating diabetes have indicated that the compound helps reduce sugar in the blood. Bitter melon extract, also known as karela or bitter gourd, is a fruit that is used often in South Asian countries to treat diabetes. The Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Disease stated that a study demonstrated that bitter gourd helped slow down blood sugar level-dependent cataract formation. Other active ingredients include Cinnamon, Gingseng, Chromium Picolinate and Citrin K, a compound attributed to weight loss.
Diabetic patients like Ms. Perry have expressed their confidence in Captavida as a supplement to their diabetes treatment. It is encouraged to speak to your doctor before taking any supplement, as they may react with some prescribed medication. The active ingredients in Captavida have been used for years and studies have demonstrated the ability of its ingredients to regulate blood sugar.
