Today, it is universally acknowledged that most hypoglycemic, diabetic and other blood sugar related conditions manifest from the abuse of food (eating too much), a poor diet that leads to nutritional deficiencies, and the abuse of sugars and carbohydrates. These three habits weaken the pancreas, which is the organ that regulates blood sugar by producing insulin. When the pancreas is weak, it is unable to control blood sugar levels, eventually leading to disorders such as diabetes and hypoglycemia.
Millions of adults (and millions of children joining them everyday) choose to use medication to control these disorders. However, medication treats only the symptoms of the disease and does not address the cause. The best way to treat blood sugar related conditions is to stop the abuse, start exercising, and improve the diet.
BAC can help regulate blood sugar
Many people consuming BAC have easily reduced and even stopped using medication to control their blood sugar disorders. This is possible because BAC contains several nutrients and phytonutrients that can help control blood sugar levels in the body by addressing the root of the problem, which is poor nutrition.
Do not forget that our bodies and organs are made up of trillions of cells. When the cells of the body receive the nutrients that they need, they will perform their multitude of cellular metabolic activities: growth, repair, cleansing, regeneration, protection and more. When each cell of an organ, such as the pancreas, performs its job well, then the organ will have a fighting chance to perform its metabolic activities, such as blood sugar regulation.
In addition, cellular activities and organ metabolic functions are governed by the glandular level which itself is overseen by the master gland: the hypothalamus. The hypothalamous monitors blood sugar levels and issues the hormonal command to the pancreas to regulate blood sugar with insulin. BAC’s greatest quality is that it efficiently nourishes ALL the cells of the body, including those of the hypothalamus. So you see, by taking BAC, you are not only nourishing the pancreas, you are nourishing the entire chain of command that oversees the process of blood sugar regulation.
Amongst other nutrients and their mechanisms of action, BAC has the added benefit of providing a full spectrum of essential fatty acids (the good fats that heal) like omega-3 and non-essential fatty acids like omega-6 and omega-9, including the important Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), which has been shown to be effective at controlling blood sugar levels.
Since much of the reason for carbohydrate, junk food and sugar cravings is founded in nutritional deficiencies, BAC also helps to reduce cravings by providing rare nutrients and certain trace minerals that are difficult to obtain in our regular diet, such as magnesium. After these nutrients are finally provided to a body that has been missing them for a long period of time, cravings tend to calm down.
A good example of how cravings work is when a pregnant mother craves specific foods, such as chocolate. During pregnancy, a woman requires higher levels of several nutrients in order to adequately nourish herself and the fetus. Chocolate cravings are signals from the body that are saying “eat more magnesium.” If the woman gets the magnesium she needs from better sources in the first place, her chocolate cravings will stop.
Many people that consume BAC also notice that their appetite for better foods returns, they have less blood sugar related jitters, they experience less drowsiness after meals and they notice appetite suppressant benefits. When you consume BAC, its proteins and carbohydrates provide a steady stream of energy to the body without spiking insulin secretion. As a result, cravings are satisfied. Remember, BAC contains a near-perfect ratio of high-density proteins and complex carbohydrates.
Astaxanthin, as contained in BAC, has also been studied for its efficacy in addressing the conditions imposed by type II diabetes. One study demonstrated that astaxanthin was capable of reducing blood glucose levels by nearly 40% in laboratory mice administered with an Intraperitoneal Glucose Tolerance Test (IPGTT), as well as preserving pancreatic beta-cells from oxidative damage and increasing insulin sensitivity. A later study, also done with laboratory mice, revealed that astaxanthin aided in the prevention of diabetic nephropathy as measured through the inhibition of urinary albumin loss and DNA damage – by 67% and 50% respectively.
No longer pre-diabetic!
I started taking BAC F2 and F3 almost exactly one year ago.
I informed myself about the products by reading the Bio-Algae Concentrates website after my vet recommended BAC F2 for my aging cats. I then decided to try BAC myself.
For the past 15 years I’ve been told I’m pre-diabetic. Because of that, I’ve tried to change my diet and take supplements according to recommendations by various naturopaths and healers. But, despite everything, I remained pre-diabetic. I also take synthyroid and liothyronine supplements, as prescribed by my physician.
Now, one year later, I see great improvement in my health; my lab tests in September, 2006 indicate that I’m no longer pre-diabetic, and my thyroid dose was cut in half last May. I also have very little plaque on my teeth after decades of deposits that required cleaning every 4 months. My dentist is surprised because teeth and gums usually deteriorate more at my age (63) as opposed to becoming healthier.
After a year of taking 4-6 F2 and 8-12 F3 daily and getting these results, I feel comfortable recommending BAC to others.

Blood sugar control
“…My 11 year record of Type I Diabetes has never shown the degree of control of blood sugar that I am now experiencing since I began using BAC 6 weeks ago. I am using less insulin and showing much better control. Stay tuned for further results…”

Type I Diabetes
“My insulin intake has measurably decreased over the past 2 months as I have been taking the Bio-Algae Concentrates F3. Throughout 2002, my daily insulin usage has averaged 42 units, including a basal rate of 10-15 units of Lantus and the rest short acting Novolog. Since starting use of Bio-Algae Concentrates F3, my average has dropped to 34.1 over the past 90 days, measuring on July 1. The average is 34.1 for the past 60 days, 34.3 for the past 30 days, 31.2 for the past 14 days, and 27.4 units for the past 7 days.
I have been eating lighter the past 10 days, which shows up as decreased insulin requirements. I also notice more consistent energy and need for about 1 hour less sleep compared to before I began using Bio-Algae Concentrates F3 in March.”

Diabetes Type II
“I am diabetic, on multiple medications and recently reached such a low that I could barely function. In 3 weeks on BAC, I quit taking anti-depressants, stopped eating any sugars, began working out twice a day, and have dropped my blood sugar from 250 to 125. I’m sure the diet and exercise was a big part, but I never could have even begun without that BAC boost.”
