Blood Sugar Support Ingredients Here is the science behind how these ingredients work & why so many of our clients have lost many kilos but added these to their balanced diet Chromium picolinate and how it balances your blood sugar levels and stops cravings: This is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in our bodies’ normal carbohydrate metabolism, which converts the food we eat into sugars.

The length of your telomeres determines how fast you age. Dr Simoné investigates how we can, in fact, slow this process down to improve your mental and physical health and move you into active anti-ageing and disease prevention. So what Are Telomeres and why do they determine how fast you are ageing? Telomeres are segments of DNA at the end of our chromosomes and scientists often compare them to the plastic tips of shoelaces that keep the laces together. Telomeres function in a similar way, reducing the potential for chromosomes to start fraying or tangling with one another. When this tangling occurs, it can cause genetic information to get confused or even destroyed, leading to cell malfunction, increasing the risk of disease and accelerating ageing both physically and mentally. Each time a cell divides and splits, it’s telomeres become shorter. After years of this continuous process, telomeres become too short for more divisions. At this point, cells are unable to divide further and
