If you’ve been tearing your hair out trying to keep your blood sugar in the safe zone… forcing yourself to eat like a rabbit… and dreading every checkup…
This may be the most important message you’ve ever heard.
When you learn the facts I’m about to share with you, you may never drive yourself crazy worrying about maintaining your healthy blood sugar again.
Instead of letting your quest to maintain healthy blood sugar take over your life, you’ll learn how to confidently take back control…
I’m talking about SWEET FREEDOM from blood sugar’s “emotional rollercoaster”…
Just think—with all that freed up time and energy, you could start really living again…
STOP worrying about every little thing you eat…
START loving your healthy food again…
STOP suffering through lectures from “health nags”…
AND START enjoying real blood sugar support!
So what’s all the fuss about?
Researchers from the Human Nutrition Research Center in Maryland have just made a mind-bending discovery… a breakthrough that’s poised to erase your blood sugar stress once and for all…
It’s all about these newly-discovered compounds called Type-A Polymers. They do something that sounds like MAGIC:
They perform a VANISHING ACT on blood sugar!
By helping convert it into energy for your body—like never before.
Oddly enough, they were discovered inside a very special kind of tree bark—I’ll tell you more about that in a minute.
But first, let me show you why these Type-A Polymers are creating such a stir…
It’s simple, really. The science behind these natural compounds defies everything conventional wisdom has to say about blood sugar.
Of course, we all know diet and exercise are still important—that’s never going to change.
But as you also know, when your blood sugar numbers are healthy, you want to KEEP them that way. And that’s all about proper glucose metabolism.
And most experts are thrilled if they can manage to boost glucose metabolism even a tiny little bit.
But in a recent in-vitro study,
Type-A Polymers boosted glucose
metabolism over 20 fold!
Now, this research is preliminary. More studies are needed to determine exactly how these Type-A Polymers work in the body. But these results are so promising, you shouldn’t have to wait…
With this level of support, you could finally stop living a life that revolves around keeping your blood sugar healthy, and start living a life that revolves around YOU and the things you love to do…
Sound impossible? It might make a little more sense when you learn that Type-A Polymers are…
The secret weapon behind the blood sugar-improving
power of CINNAMON
Now, maybe you’ve heard all about cinnamon and blood sugar. It’s been all over the news, and frankly, I understand if you’re “over it.”
But if you’re at all concerned about healthy blood sugar, keep watching. Because what you never heard on the news is that until recently, cinnamon’s effect was a complete mystery…
That’s right—no one knew exactly how it worked, or what it is about cinnamon that does the trick.
…thanks to a researcher at the USDA’s Human Nutrition Research Center, who dug deep into the “cinnamon mystery” and spent years picking apart samples of cinnamon at the molecular level, painstakingly testing each compound concluded that Type-A Polymers are the secret to cinnamon’s power. They work by opening up the glucose receptors in your cells, which is how your body “vacuums up” blood sugar and burns it into energy.
Think about that for a moment—these unique compounds actually stoke the “metabolic fire” that incinerates glucose…
That helps your blood sugar levels stay nice and healthy, AND you have plenty of energy for all the things you love to do…
Can you imagine that? Strolling into your yearly checkup without an ounce of worry on your face… and hearing the thinly-veiled shock in your doctor’s voice when he announces the healthiest results you’ve ever gotten!
You’ll actually FEEL the difference—with less of that post-meal sluggishness that drags us all down…
That’s what happens when your numbers stay right in the middle of the healthy range—you have plenty of lasting, stable energy.
In other words, this could be…
Your faster, simpler, more natural path to
healthier blood sugar
Not to mention all the blessed stress relief that comes with it…
And you already know that, in conjunction with diet and exercise, glucose metabolism is the key to keeping your blood sugar healthy…
So you can just imagine how a daily dose of these powerful nutrients will make that a whole lot easier!
And amazingly enough, it does MORE than just revolutionize the way you handle your blood sugar. Consider this a little icing on the cake…
Because one small cutting-edge study showed that cinnamon may also help decrease body fat!
So don’t be surprised if those healthy blood sugar numbers are soon accompanied by a little less flab around your midsection…
Blood sugar support AND a little boost to your fat loss efforts—don’t you just love it when one thing makes your life better in TWO wonderful ways?
And just in case that’s not enough for you, consider this: cinnamon ALSO has powerful antioxidant properties! That means it may help promote healthy levels of inflammation and maintain a strong, healthy heart…
Imagine the peace of mind you’ll have knowing that you’re not only taking an important extra step to support healthy blood sugar, you’re also helping keep your heart in tip-top shape…
Can you see why there’s so much excitement surrounding this spice rack staple?
But before you take advantage of this breakthrough, there’s something you really need to know.
Here’s what cinnamon CAN’T do…
Even cinnamon extract—as powerful as it is for supporting healthy blood sugar metabolism—is more or less helpless against the effects of inevitable blood sugar spikes that come after meals.
If you’ve ever had that sleepy, sluggish feeling after a meal, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Even a perfectly healthy meal can cause spikes and slumps in glucose.
And let’s be candid here—no matter how much will power you muster—not every meal is going to be perfectly healthy—and you know you’re going to reach into the cookie jar every once in a while.
So what I’m saying is—
Sugar spikes are a fact of life
Even for us healthy folks. You just can’t get away from them.
But you’re about to learn how to protect yourself from their effects.
New research shows that sugar spikes are one of the primary causes of AGEs. If you haven’t heard, AGEs (or Advanced Glycation End Products) are very bad news…
They’re unstable molecules formed when glucose hangs around for too long in your blood stream and reacts with proteins.
And then, they attack sensitive cells in the most important parts of your body…
They’re like little gangs of “glucose thugs”—running around making trouble for everything in their path.
And there’s only one way I know of to guard against these “glucose gang members.” I call it…
The “Sugar-Shield” Vitamin…
And get this—it’s actually an under-publicized form of a common B vitamin. I’ll tell you what it is in just a minute, but first let me explain the strange way this super-nutrient was discovered.
It started in the 1960s with a group of German researchers.
But here’s the strange part—their research had NOTHING to do with blood sugar!
They were looking for nutrients that support a healthy nervous system.
They stumbled onto a compound called benfotiamine, which is a little-known form of vitamin B1.
How can this help you protect your body parts from those gangs of glucose thugs?
Well, in 2003, a doctor from the Research Center at Albert Einstein College of Medicine made the startling connection. His name was Dr. Brownlee, and he had one of those “aha” moments that makes you wonder why no one had thought of it before…
He knew that vitamin B1 does more than keep your nerves healthy. It also acts like a “glucose thermostat”—when sugar spikes happen, it cranks up a certain enzyme that helps your body burn away the AGEs caused by runaway glucose.
So if you could simply boost the levels of B1 in your bloodstream, you could protect your cells against those nasty glucose gangbangers.
The problem was—how to boost levels of B1.
Generic vitamin B1 tablets—like the kind you’ll find at the drug store—are not absorbed well enough to make much of a difference. In fact, they barely show up in your bloodstream and tissues—and that’s where you need them.
But this Dr. Brownlee said, “Hey, wait a minute… What about this other form of B1? You know, the one that’s absorbed 5 times better? HAS ANYBODY EVEN TRIED IT!?”
And this, my friend, is where things get really exciting.
Dr. Brownlee showed that benfotiamine could…
Scare off those “glucose thugs”
better than a SAWED-OFF 12-GAUGE SHOTGUN…
It’s almost like it forms a shield around your most important body parts.
You do want to maintain crystal clear vision, a strong heartbeat, and healthy kidney function, don’t you?
Well benfotiamine could help you do that and much more.
See, over the past few years, researchers around the globe have put benfotiamine through the ringer—testing it in heaps of preliminary clinical trials—and it has earned its title as the “sugar shield” vitamin.
Here’s a small sampling of the research, so you understand why I’m so excited:
A researcher from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine demonstrated that benfotiamine activates a key blood sugar-metabolizing enzyme 250% in-vitro compared to regular vitamin B1—which boosted the enzyme a measly 25%. That’s 10 TIMES BETTER—the kind of increase that could make a real difference in your life…
Doctors from the Bristol Heart Institute showed that in mice, benfotiamine protected against elevated glucose’s reckless activity—helping to keep the heart muscle strong… and it doesn’t get more “mission-critical” than your heart.
But any doctor worth his salt knows there’s another piece of the glucose puzzle. And it’s a BIG one…
I’m talking about insulin sensitivity.
How important is insulin sensitivity? Well imagine that your cells are like the houses in a neighborhood. Insulin is kind of like the milkman, bringing fresh milk (glucose) to your front door…
Proper insulin sensitivity means you can “hear” the milkman knocking—so glucose is safely delivered to your cells where you can use it for energy.
And one thing is for sure—if you want to support your body’s healthy insulin sensitivity, you NEED the mineral chromium.
Research shows that it’s essential for the formation of glucose tolerance factor, which is a key part of insulin sensitivity.By supporting proper insulin sensitivity, your numbers stay right in the middle of the healthy zone.
And that could help you feel more focused and energized, with less of those fogged-over, sluggish spells that happen to us all after we eat a high-carb meal.

National Tax Freedom Day, the day the nation finally pays off its total tax bill for the year, hits on April 21, 2014.
It’ll take us 111 days to appease Uncle Sam this year.
Well, it’s even worse for folks living in Connecticut and New Jersey.
When you factor in state taxes, those residents won’t be free until May 9.
The earliest Tax Freedom Day was in Louisiana this year (March 30), followed by Mississippi (April 2) and South Dakota (April 4).
The only good news? I’m hearing some “Beltway” chatter that there’s relief in sight!
So I asked Capitol Hill Daily’s Chief Political Analyst, Floyd Brown, to give us the scoop.
~Robert Williams, Founder, Wall Street Daily
Before founding Wall Street Daily in the teeth of the Financial Crisis, Robert Williams served as the lead financial analyst for a Forbes top-50 private corporation and an analyst for the endowment of a major academic institution.
Will Rogers famously said, “Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we’re paying for.”
Like most Americans, Rogers understood that it isn’t cheap to live in the United States. And he wasn’t talking about the cost of living… He was talking about the cost of government.
Today, Americans spend more of their hard-earned dollars on government than they do on food, housing and clothing – combined.
Indeed, we’re paying more money to the government than at any time in our history! We know this because, each year, the Tax Foundation releases a report chronicling what we all pay.
The report also identifies “Tax Freedom Day,” the day that Americans have theoretically made enough money to cover their tax obligations for the year.
To pinpoint Tax Freedom Day, the Tax Foundation divides all federal, state and local taxes by the nation’s income. In 2014, Americans will pay $3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.5 trillion in state taxes, for a total tax bill of $4.5 trillion, or 30.2% of gross income.
This year, Tax Freedom Day will be April 21. So Americans have to work a total of 111 days before they can take home a penny for themselves or their families.
Running Up the Tab on America
Now, it hasn’t always been this way.
The tax burden really didn’t mushroom until World War I. In 1917, Tax Freedom Day was January 24. But following the First World War, Tax Freedom Day moved all the way back to February 22.
Sadly, it’s only moved further down the calendar since then.
During the Depression, Franklin Roosevelt significantly boosted taxes. And then he bumped them up again during World War II. By the end of 1943, Tax Freedom Day moved into April. Yet even after the war, taxes never really went down.
Today, the situation has become grave.

Leaked documents reveal plan to counter online dissent during martial law
by Paul Joseph Watson
Leaked Homeland Security documents obtained by Infowars reveal details of a joint DHS/FEMA national exercise, one of the components of which revolves around an effort to counter online dissent by a group called “Free Americans Against Socialist Tyranny,” which is disgruntled at the imposition of martial law after an earthquake in Alaska.
The document again underscores the federal government’s obsession with characterizing libertarians and conservatives as some kind of extremist radical threat.
The document (PDF) was leaked by an individual affiliated with Stewart Rhodes’ Oathkeepers organization and passed on to Infowars. It is entitled National Exercise Program – Capstone Exercise 2014 – Scenario Ground Truth.
The document is intended for “U.S. Department of Homeland Security Trusted Agents Only” and is “disseminated only on a need-to-know basis.” Even the role players involved in the exercise itself are prohibited from seeing the files.
The exercise is designed to evaluate readiness in preparation for a catastrophic incident, natural disaster or major act of terrorism. Some of the scenarios which will be in play during the exercise include a series of earthquakes, tsunamis and a nuclear weapons accident.
On page 125 of the document, a scenario is outlined whereby a group calling itself “Free Americans against Socialist Tyranny” responds to “The U.S. Northern Command mission of Defense Support to Civil Authorities” (or the imposition of martial law) by launching a protest campaign on social media and potentially engaging in cyber attacks.
The Capstone Exercise 2014 document makes it clear that a key part of the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA’s preparation for the aftermath of major catastrophic incidents in the United States is centered around combating online dissent which will be sparked as a result of federal authorities and military assets instituting martial law, or what the document refers to as “Defense Support to Civil Authorities”.
This is particularly chilling given reports that emerged in 2006 concerning a nationwide FEMA program under which Pastors and other religious representatives were trained to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.
The fact that the DHS is focusing its cyber security efforts during a major national exercise not on targeting foreign state actors or terrorists but on combating online dissent by conservatives is sure to increase concerns that the federal agency once again has libertarians, patriots and small government activists in the crosshairs.
