Salt with low-sodium + potassium + iodine + selenium

For diabetics offered food grade salt - "Extra" brand «SOLENA».

The structure of the salt include a unique set of trace element:

Composition (100 g): magnesium - 550 mg, selenium - 0.1 mg, chromium - 0.07 mg, zinc - 21 mg.

This complex obtained by the achievements of nanotechnology. In its structure and chemical purity of micronutrients included in the complex, very close to the biometalloorganic compounds that are synthesized in living cells (the cells of humans, animals, plants). Therefore, these trace elements in contact with a living cell it is not perceived as alien elements, as well as their own, which ensures their high biocompatibility and correspondingly high digestibility of (tens of times higher than the one used by the majority at the moment). In particular, studies have shown that such mikroelemets based on citric acid - citrate in contact with the cell are directly involved in one of the major energy metabolic cycles - the Krebs cycle.

Modern trace element complex for diabetics.

Diabetic food have significant limitations, which, consequently, leads to a failure in the body of the patient for their vital micronutrient. In turn, the lack of trace elements, and especially the selenium, chromium, magnesium and zinc, diabetes exacerbates the disease and contributes to the development of complications. Since the metabolism of people with diabetes can be increased formation of free radicals, it must be ensured adequate intake of antioxidants for diabetics up for increased demand for special trace elements in patients with diabetes. This resulted in the metabolism of patients with diabetes, for example, increased release of magnesium, it is possible to improve the condition of the body.

Selenium has strong antioxidant properties, help maintain the natural balance between the production of free radicals and their removal from the body. Moreover, they play an important role in protecting cells.
Chromium contributes to the maintenance of an optimal level of blood sugar, preventing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disorders, lowers cholesterol levels, prevents the formation of fat cells.
Zinc is involved in the formation of immunity is a part of enzymes, including those which catalyze the metabolism of nucleic acids providing hematopoiesis supports the function of the thymus gland.
Magnesium is involved in the metabolism of phosphorus, thereby reducing blood pressure, necessary for the functioning of many enzymes.

The functions of trace elements:

Magnesium. Exchange magnesium closely associated with diabetes, as this element has an effect on the metabolism of insulin, and increases sugar excretion in the urine Mg. In addition, the amounts of Ca and Mg is directly dependent tissue sensitivity to insulin. When increasing calcium ion sensitivity decreases, and Mg-ions increases. So, if a complex therapy of type 2 diabetes to add magnesium, the tissue sensitivity to its own insulin and blood sugar will rise fall.In diabetes magnesium prevents vascular complications in combination with zinc, chromium, selenium, improves the function of the beta cells of the pancreas.


Magnesium is involved in the processes of secretion and activation of insulin binding. It is an activator of more than 300 enzymes in the human body and essential cofactor for most enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism. It is found that in DM regardless of the level of insulin secretion. Normal magnesium improves the sensitivity of tissues to insulin. Magnesium deficiency, conversely, enhances the insulin resistance, even in healthy subjects. Furthermore, it was revealed that cellular uptake of Mg2 +, which is normally stimulated by insulin, is weakened in diabetes. In general, these processes form a "vicious cycle" in which low levels of magnesium produces insulin resistance and that in turn weakens the grip of magnesium in the tissues.

There is a theory that a lack of magnesium in erythrocytes violates the viscosity of membranes, which can adversely affect the interaction with insulin receptors present on membranes.

The role of magnesium was essential for the formation of diabetic lesions. Thus, the loss of magnesium in diabetes combined with various cardiovascular disorders: arrhythmia, vasoconstriction, hypertension, increased platelet activity. Magnesium deficiency is important in diabetic retinopathy, the lower the magnesium content is greater predictor of the severity of its course. Oral compensation of magnesium deficiency has a positive effect not only on glucose utilization, but also in coronary diabetic patients, reducing platelet reactivity, and systolic blood pressure.

Zinc increases the hypoglycemic effect of insulin, and stimulates insulin synthesis, a part of the insulin crystals, localized in the secretory granules of pancreatic islet cells. It is necessary for normal functioning of the immune system, all the processes of regeneration and recovery, since it increases the body's resistance to infections and barrier function of the skin, which is very important for diabetics, who are prone to frequent infections, infected skin wounds. An antioxidant, slows the aging process.

Hormonal changes zinc deficiency.
Zinc and insulin show a number of interesting morphological and functional relationships. Thus, zinc plays an important role in the synthesis and accumulation of the release of insulin in pancreatic cells Langerhans - Insulin accumulates in the pancreas in the form of zinc-insulin, which contains approx. 0.5% zinc. In studies in vitro- zinc increases insulin binding to the membrane of liver cells, inhibits lipolysis and increases lipogenesis; Further, increased glucose transport and oxidation in adipocytes). Also entsim Carboxypeptidase B, which converts the proinsulin to insulin, insulin-dependent. Zinc ions, on the one hand, increase the solubility of the proinsulin and, on the other hand, reduce the solubility of insulin, i.e. precipitation and crystallization of insulin dependent zinc.

Chromium increases insulin sensitivity, helps in the formation of the desired stereoformy insulin, so it can effectively move glucose into cells. Chromium deficiency worsens insulin resistance - one of the main mechanisms for the development of type 2 diabetes, while chromium supplementation (alone or in combination with antioxidant vitamins C and E) causes a decrease in blood glucose levels, HbA1c and insulin resistance. Several studies have shown that elevated levels of glucose in the blood increases chromium excretion from the body, leading to a decrease of its level in patients with diabetes. Chromium is a useful quality reduction in craving for sweets that helps patients follow a diet with restriction of carbohydrates with a sweet taste. Admission chromium helps reduce cholesterol levels in the blood and body weight in obese patients.

Trivalent chromium is considered as one of the essential trace elements in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, as it enhances the action of insulin and acts as a glucose tolerance factor. Chromium deficiency worsens insulin resistance - one of the main mechanisms for the development of type 2 diabetes, whereas its supplementation alone or in combination with antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, causes a decrease in blood glucose levels, HbA1c levels and insulin resistance. Elevated blood glucose level increases the excretion of chromium from the body, causing a decrease in its level in patients suffering from diabetes. Chromium is a useful quality reduction in craving for sweets, which helps diabetic patients to follow a diet with restriction of carbohydrates with a sweet.

Selenium. Among the most essential minerals have strong antioxidant properties, selenium. It is part of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase vital. This substance - one of the key enzymes of the antioxidant action. Selenium deficiency in the organism appears to slow growth tackle synthesis surfactant (substance necessary for preservation of the alveolar volume), and leads to the development of cataracts, the appearance of degenerative changes in the pancreas, kidneys, liver and to accelerated development of atherosclerosis.

Diabetes is accompanied by increased cholesterol, and platelets, and compromised immune systems (including reduced and non-specific cellular immunity). Receiving additional selenium is accompanied by improvement of these indicators.

Selenium improves the absorption and use of myocardial insulin in diabetes. Oxidation of glucose is a key element in the exchange of energy in the cells of the myocardium. To myocardial cell membranes could carry glucose, insulin needs. Experimental results demonstrated that deficiency of selenium and vitamin E in diabetes accompanied by a decrease in insulin levels in the myocardium.However, reception of additional selenium together with Vitamin E causes increase in the content of insulin in the myocardium and improves cellular metabolism in the heart muscle.

Diabetes causes serious damage to the eyes: cataracts occur in 47% of cases, changes in the retina - in 35.6%. The main mechanism of cataract lens is oxidative damage by free radicals as a result of violations of the antioxidant system in the lens. As a result of research, scientists have concluded that the trace element selenium has important positive qualities against damage of caused by diabetes.

APPLICATION OF SELENA the treatment of diabetes.

Chinese scientists have found that with the defeat of the secretion function of islet cell activity of glutathione peroxidase (selenium enzyme) in syvorotkekrovi and pancreatic tissue significantly decreased, while the number of products increases fat oxidation. In a joint application dopolnitelnogoselena and vitamin E insulin-secretory function increases. This increase in glutathione peroxidase activity in the serum and tissues of the pancreas followed by reducing the amount of fat oxidation products in plasma. This proves that the damage is due to the islets of Langerhans oxidizing action caused by selenium deficiency in the body, and that selenium is essential for the prevention and treatment of diabetes and its attendant symptoms.

Receiving selenium diabetes reduces blood sugar level and, consequently, to reduce the dose of insulin and other drugs. Increase performance, motor activity, reduces itching, improves sleep, appetite and mood.

Scientists believe the following mechanism of the effect of selenium on the insulin-secretory function. Selenodefitsit lowers glutathione peroxidase activity of islet cells, which contributes to free radical attack on the pancreatic tissue damage which leads to a decrease in insulin secretion. Additional selenium helps maintain the activity of enzymes that protect tissues from attack and damage by free radicals.

Recently, French scientists from the University of Montpellier (France) reported data from a study which analyzed the state of more than a thousand healthy people: both men and women. Regular inspection of the cohort was carried out for 10 years. According to the results, a middle-aged and elderly people with a relatively high content of selenium in the blood (1,2-1,99 mol / L) had a significantly lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than others studied with lower levels of selenium in the blood. Unlike men, women have such a law is not revealed.
