As an energy carrier, sugar (glucose) plays a key role in energy metabolism. The uptake and transport of glucose into the cells require the sufficient availability of the hormone insulin, which is produced by the pancreas. Simultaneously, blood glucose uptake takes place independently of insulin in vascular endothelial cells. Glucose enters these cells through little biological pumps in the cell membrane. However, vitamin C uses the same transport route into the cells of the blood-vessel walls where it contributes to collagen formation and the normal functioning of the blood vessels. Therefore, a balanced relationship between vitamin C and glucose in the blood is an important precondition for enabling the infiltration of both factors into the cells.
An optimal supply with selected cellular nutrients is therefore important for a normal sugar metabolism and to protect the blood vessels. The Dr. Rath Cellular Nutrient Program provides valuable cellular nutrients to support these effects. See for yourself!
