Diabetes is classified into 2 types: Type I diabetes is caused primarily
by insulin deficiency from dysfunction of pancreatic 5-cells and it represents
less than 20% of all cases of diabetes.
Type II diabetes represents more than 80% (more than 16 millions in the
U.S. alone and some 250 million worldwide) and it is estimated 40 to 45%
of people over 65 years old are at risk.
In many Type II diabetes cases, insulin deficiency is not a primary problem but peripheral (muscle and fat tissues) insulin resistance is a major factor. In other words. Type II diabetes is glucose intolerance. Therefore, the treatment for the patients with Type II diabetes relies mainly on how to overcome insulin resistance. The drugs used to enhance the insulin sensitivity for this type of diabetes have many adverse side effects, especially on kidneys and liver.
Are there alternative (natural) means to overcome your insulin resistance
Yes, we have good news from Maitake Products, the maker of Grifron Maitake
Pro D-fraction and other fine Mushroom Wisdom medicinal mushroom products.

Research started at Georgetown University
in Washington DC. and New York Medical
Valhalla, NY. in 1997 discovered an
compound (another beta-glucan) in the
mushroom called X-fraction. This X-fraction,
according to their studies, would weaken
the insulin resistance and consequently
Searching for a better compound, Cun Zhuang, Ph.d., Chief Researcher at Maitake Products, developed an improved method to successfully fractionate and identify another active compound from Maitake, named SX-Fraction. Studies on SX-Fraction have been conducted at Georgetown University and New York Medical College respectively over the last two years. The results show that SX fraction does indeed possess a more potent ability to enhance insulin sensitivity for controlling blood sugar levels and lowering blood pressure than X-fraction.
A clinical study was recently completed in Japan ondiabetes
patients taking SX Fraction both for short-term (2 months)
(see charts 1and 2 below)
and long-term (5-7 months) use (see chart 3 below).
Short term use of SX-Fraction caused blood sugar to drop from 203 mg/dl
to 171 mg/dl.
Long-term use of the product caused blood sugar to drop from
196 mg/dl to 137 mg/dl. Both of these results were statistically significant.
In this study, body weight declined modestly among
SX-Fraction users, dropping 3 kg (about 7 lbs) in two months. LDL cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol, also declined in two months, from 142 mg/dl to 133 mg/dl, a drop that was statistically significant.
While research done so far on SX Fraction suggests that it works by increasing
the insulin sensitivity of your body's cells, an informal study done recently
by a nutritionist produced some intriguing additional results. Patients
suffering from hyperlipemia accompanied by low energy levels and fatigue,
after taking SX-Fraction, experienced a sharp rise in energy and decline
in craving for sweets. This result seems to imply that SX-Fraction may
also be effective as an agent to treat hypoglycemia, in addition to hyperglycemia.*
The results of the human studies suggest that sx fraction may be useful
in affecting four different physiological parameters important in cardiovascular
health: blood glucose levels, cholesterol, body weight and systolic blood
Moreover, unlike pharmaceutical products that treat these conditions, SX-Fraction
has no noticeable side effects of an) kind.
This is truly good news for those who suffer from syndrome X, type II diabetes or for those who would like to help prevent it.

Dear Mike & Shoko - I could go on and on about the positive effects
of the supplements I am now receiving from you.
I am basically a healthy person and I have always been concerned about
health, weight and exercise. I have been a "fegetarian" (I eat
fish) off & on for 30 years, totally for the last 10 years. The last
five years, as I started to feel the aging process effect my metabolism,
appearance and energy levels. I am currently 54. I started taking vitamin
supplements. I did feel positive effects. However, about a year ago I started
to gain weight because my body was craving sugary foods which I had never
cared about before. Also, I started needing to eat incredible quantities
of food to feel satisfied, as opposed to full. My doctor's solution was
for me to take anti-depressants! I even tried over the counter diet pills,
for a couple of weeks, out of desperation. Then I found maitake sx fraction.
Short-term and long-term effects have been phenomenal and I promise I am
not exaggerating. I no longer crave sweets and if I do it is easily satisfied
by a piece of fresh fruit. I eat normal amounts of food again and my energy
level has absolutely soared. I will never stop taking maitake SX fraction.
I also just started taking Crypto Power and I have not felt this good since my early twenties.
You are just such a much happier person when you feel good.
Thank you Mike & Shoko!!!
