The bane of modern society is that progress, on the one hand, has given mankind a very beneficial technology-based infrastructure and global food resources to fill the bellies of more than 6.9 billion individuals.
The mere suggestion of such a number half a millennium ago would have been regarded as both an impossibility and a nightmare.
Unfortunately, these same food resources are unhealthy when utilized in excess. This has led to a global epidemic of obesity and diabetes, a chronic debilitating disease, that has life-changing consequences and can lead to an untimely early death.
Obesity and diabetes go hand in hand like a sinister pairing of two evils.
Overeating is bad enough but in combination with a lack of proper daily exercise, unhealthy foods, the consumption of excess sugar and sweets, the over-utilization of processed food products in the place of natural food grains, can stress the body and trigger the onset of Type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes comes in two types. Type 1 diabetes is the result of the body being unable to produce insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes means the body can still produce some level of insulin but in an insufficient amount to properly regulate blood sugar.
Secondarily, the body may not properly respond to the presence of insulin, even if in an amount that is borderline sufficient to regulate blood sugar levels. This condition is known as insulin resistance.
Both types of diabetes can over the long-term lead to extensive and permanent damage to the circulatory system, the nervous system, the eyes and the kidneys.
Symptoms of diabetes that may lead to health complaints for those unaware they have the disease or are otherwise borderline diabetic are frequent urination, excessive thirst, fatigue and tiredness, sexual performance issues (in males) and vision problems.
A person who is also obese in addition to being diabetic may also suffer from aches and pains in the joints, especially in the knees, feet and ankles that are the result of a fatigued and damaged skeletal structure due to their excessive body weight.
Diabetes and obesity are two very serious health problems that cannot and should never be overlooked or ignored.
Health supplements can ameliorate some of the symptoms of these chronic conditions that impact upon quality-of-life.
The Green Lipped Mussel is a large bivalve that is commercially harvested in the ocean waters off the coast of New Zealand. This remarkable marine animal is regarded as a high-quality source of Omega 3 fatty acids. These animal-derived fatty acids are known for their anti-inflammatory properties.
Mussel extract also contains docosahexaenoic (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) which help protect the human circulatory system and are important for cardiac health.
The reduction in inflammation and chronic pain in the joints, as well as improved cardiac and circulatory health are very beneficial to suffers of diabetes and for those individuals who are grossly overweight and obese.
A vigorous routine of daily exercise, both in terms of cardiac and respiratory exertion, can effectively reduce the unpleasant symptoms of diabetes and make them less severe, leading to an overall improved quality-of-life.
Daily exercise, improved diet and a consequential reduction in weight are the keys to living with diabetes. Green Lipped Mussel Powder can be an important component in that never-ending battle for better health.
Managing your diabetes and watching your weight has never been easier than with this very valuable animal-based health supplement.
