Blood Sugar Control*
NOW MORE CONCENTRATED AND STRONGER!
This formula is designed to work synergistically to help support healthy glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity and blood lipid levels, including triglycerides. This product is formulated based on clinical experience and the latest studies on blood sugar control combined with the knowledge of the 2000-year-old science of Ayurveda.
It is one of the most potent glucose control formulas available on the market today, due the combined effect of ingredients which are known to be effective both individually and synergistically. This product can be used in weight loss programs, insulin resistance and diabetes.* Specific special features include:
- Cinnamon which not only stimulates insulin receptors, but also inhibits the enzyme that inactivates them, thus increasing the cell’s ability to use glucose.
- Gymnema Sylvestre is an Ayurvedic herb that has been used for controlling diabetes for over 2000 years.
- Bitter Melon: a powerful immonomodulator and has been shown to lower blood sugar levels as effectively as some anti-diabetic drugs.
- Fenugreek has the ability to lower serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels and helps maintain normal sugar levels in diabetics.
- Chromium Polynicotinate which activates insulin metabolism best in the Picolinate form.
- Vanadyl sulfate which activates insulin metabolism.
- Bioperine: clinically proven to increase the bioavailability of nutrients and herbs. *
Standard Dosage: Take three capsules daily in divided doses with meals.

“… LA improves glycemic control and polyneuropathies associated with diabetes mellitus; it also effectively mitigates toxicities associated with heavy metal poisoning…. known efficacy of LA with particular reference to types 1 and 2 diabetes. Particular attention is paid to the potential benefits of LA with respect to glycemic control, improved insulin sensitivity, oxidative stress, and neuropathy in diabetic patients. It appears that the major benefit of LA supplementation is in patients with diabetic neuropathy.”
