Product Description

Designed to help support healthy blood sugar levels. The western diet is excessively high in refined carbohydrates and sugar stressing the body to constantly work to produce insulin to reduce the levels of sugar in the blood. which in turn, stresses the pancreas.  Excessive levels of glucose in the blood contribute to many disease conditions, resulting in glycation where sugar bonds to and damages tissues in the body and brain.  Alzheimer's is now theorized to be diabetes of the brain and glycation may be one of the mechanisms by which the brain is damaged, resultling in the formation of beta amyloid plaque.  Glycation Support is theorized to helps increase GLUT 4 receptors which help shuttle sugar away from the fat cells and into the muscle. This makes this product also valuable for athletes.  It’s recommended to take this product with pure Liquid Chromium, Zinc, and Manganese supplements for long-lasting support.  Note that any product that reduces blood sugar levels will also have anti-cancer properties, as cancer cells feed on exclusively on glucose and reducing levels of glucose will reduce their food supply.  Also in autism, excessive levels of glucose provide a source of food for pathogens such as yeast, so keeping glucose levels within normal levels provides overall immune system support.* 

Berberine

Berberine targets a very basic and ancient regulator of metabolism present in all animals and plants called AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Increased AMPK activity explains why berberine has so many diverse benefits.*

For people with diabetes, AMPK activation: 

  • Stimulates the uptake of glucose into the cells
  • Improves insulin sensitivity
  • Reduces glucose production in the liver

For people with heart-related problems, AMPK activation:

  • Slows the release of free fatty acids, which lowers lipid levels and prevents harmful fat deposition
  • Boosts fat burning in the mitochondria
  • Stimulates the release o nitric oxide (NO), a signaling molecule that relaxes the arteries, increases blood flow and lowers blood pressure, and protects against atherosclerosis

In a clinical trial published in Metabolism, people with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes were randomly divided into groups and assigned to take metformin (Glucophage) or berberine. Improvements were noted the very first week, and at the study’s conclusion, the average blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C levels significantly decreased in both groups. Remarkably, berberine helped fight diabetes every bit as effectively as metformin. The researchers concluded that the two had “identical effect[s] in the regulation of glucose metabolism.”

In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, patients recently diagnosed with diabetes and cholesterol/triglyceride abnormalities but hadn’t yet started on medication took either 500 mg of berberine or a placebo capsule twice a day. After three months, berberine supplementation not only significantly lowered blood sugar but also triglycerides (35.9 percent), LDL cholesterol (21 percent), and total cholesterol (18 percent)—compared to minimal declines in cholesterol and an increase in triglycerides in the control group. Furthermore, the group taking berberine had lower blood pressure (average drop of 7/5 mm Hg systolic/diastolic) and modest weight and abdominal fat loss.

Banaba Leaf

The blood sugar regulating properties of corosolic acid, the active ingredient in banaba leaf, have been demonstrated in cell culture, animal, and human studies. In isolated cells, it is known to stimulate glucose uptake. In fact, some studies have shown that it can help lower blood sugar within sixty minutes. It has also been shown to help correct leptin problems and food cravings that are typically found in overweight individuals who have elevated blood sugar. The average human response is a 10-15% decrease in blood sugar within two hours of ingestion.*

In diabetic mice, rats, and rabbits, banaba feeding reduces elevated blood sugar and insulin levels to normal. In humans with type II diabetes, banaba extract, at a dose of 16-48 mg per day for 4-8 weeks, has been shown to be effective in reducing blood sugar levels 5%-30%) and maintaining tighter control of blood sugar fluctuations.

An interesting "side-effect" of tighter control of blood sugar and insulin levels is a significant tendency to promote weight loss (an average of 2-4 lbs. per month) – without significant dietary alterations. It is likely that modulation of glucose and insulin levels reduces total caloric intake somewhat and encourages moderate weight-loss.

Recommended Dose

1 capsule 1-3 times a day, not to exceed 3 capsules daily.  Take 1 capsule 15 minutes before carbohydrate containing meals.  Can take 2-3 capsules a day for two weeks to see results.  Results will vary.  Consult with your licensed knowledgeable health care practitioner before using any dietary supplement.
