October 26, 2020 - DAK1K2 For Insulin Sensitivity, The Immune System and Bones


DAK1K2 For Insulin Sensitivity, The Immune System and Bones

October 26, 2020 Puzzle Piece

I personally think almost 100% of us can benefit from Dr Harris’s DAK1K2 formula. It is one of my everyday nutrients unless fasting.  Let’s take a look in this article mainly on these four nutrients in regulation of blood sugar and insulin resistance.

Fruit is good but it is sugar.  Fruit is the best eaten when it is in season to help you store fat for the winter. Fruit is acceptable for you even if you’re Type II diabetic but eat in small doses. Your body doesn’t require near as much insulin to fully metabolize natural fructose as it does for refined glucose and fructose.
Refined sugar has been added to virtually every processed food and drink. What is worse is that both cane sugar and artificial sweeteners are highly addictive. Your body starts craving sweeter and sweeter food, making it progressively harder to reverse the damage as your metabolic function suffers and you are always feeling hungry.
They both put you at higher risk for a poor lipid profile. This means higher triglycerides, lower HDL the good cholesterol, and higher bad cholesterol levels. All of this increases risk of heart attack, stroke, and coronary artery disease.
They can cause temporary reactions, like headaches, migraines, cardiovascular disease, obesity, type II diabetes, kidney damage, and more. Artificial sweeteners are just as addictive and possibly even more problematic as sugar.
The Dangers of Reduced Insulin Sensitivity
Insulin controls your blood sugar levels, something your body is constantly regulating in a never-ending effort to keep you alive. Insulin helps move sugar from your blood into your cells for storage.
Insulin enables us to take the fuel from the foods we eat (much of which is broken down into glucose in our bloodstream) and transports that glucose/blood sugar to our cells to be utilized for energy. When cells are insulin resistant, they can’t use insulin effectively, causing your blood sugar to rise.
When your pancreas senses high blood sugar, it makes more insulin to overcome the resistance and reduce your blood sugar. This leads to a host of health issues including prediabetes, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol--everything listed under metabolic syndrome.
The Lowdown on Sugar
When your body ingests sugar, the blood sugar spikes and your body releases insulin to lower it to a safer level. High sugar intake creates what your body perceives as a new norm, which leads to sugar cravings when you try to cut back. Also, insulin might make it drop too low and cravings hit again.
Heart disease--the number one killer of Americans today--has been directly linked to the intake of processed fats and high-sugar diets. Research shows obesity, diabetes, hypoglycemia, and even certain cancers are also often the result of the body's inability to metabolize processed fats and sugars.
Many studies have linked high sugar consumption with higher risk of cancer. One study in over 430,000 people found that added sugar consumption was associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer, pleural cancer and cancer of the small intestine.
Another study showed that women who consumed sweet buns and cookies more than three times per week were 1.42 times more likely to develop endometrial cancer than women who consumed these foods less than 0.5 times per week.
Dr Harris’s Essential DAK1K2 - These Nutrients Have Proven to Assist in Insulin Sensitivity
Most people are deficient in these four nutrients, which has gone unnoticed for so long that they need a therapeutic dose to help the body recover and reach optimal health. D, A, K1, & K2 have shown to reduce insulin sensitivity individually and collectively.
Vitamin D - Vitamin D increases insulin sensitivity through the effect on its muscle cell receptors and the effect on peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) δ and the influence on regulation of extracellular calcium. Therefore, vitamin D may affect insulin secretion and insulin resistance, two major complications of type II diabetes.
Vitamin A - Vitamin A improves insulin sensitivity by increasing insulin receptor phosphorylation through protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B regulation. Science Daily reported, “Researchers believe that... vitamin A plays an important role for the development of beta-cells in the early stages of life, but also for a proper function during the remaining life, especially during pathophysiological conditions, i.e. some inflammatory conditions.”
Vitamins K1 & K2 - Vitamin K has been shown to help slow the progression of insulin resistance. One study showed that vitamin K2 supplementation improves insulin sensitivity via osteocalcin metabolism.
Vitamin K, which converts undercarboxylated osteocalcin (ucOC) to carboxylated osteocalcin (cOC), which has been suggested to regulate glucose metabolism by modulating osteocalcin and/or a proinflammatory pathway. Researchers believe that cOC may be the endocrine hormone that increases insulin sensitivity in humans.
Take 1 capsule two times daily.
