Tri Sugar Shield from Life Extension contains a synergistic combination of all-natural extracts and polyphenols to support healthy blood sugar levels. Supports age related glucose concerns such as gluconeogenesis, starch-induced surges, and proper metabolism.
As we age, many of us experience increased blood glucose levels. Even if we eat right and stay active, these blood sugar levels can rise for a variety of reasons:1,2
- Gluconeogenesis (when the liver creates glucose from amino acids (proteins))
- Starch-induced glucose surges
All-natural Tri Sugar Shield includes sorghum bran and mulberry leaf extracts as well as phloridzin. These ingredients work in unison to help support healthy glucose metabolism.3-18
- Sorghum Bran Extract supports gluconeogenesis, promotes insuling sensitivity, helps with the metabolism of sugar, and supports starch-induced glucose surges.3-7
- Mulberry Leaf Extract helps support starch-induced glucose surges, promotes insulin sensitivity, and supports transporting glucose into muscle and cells.8-13
- Phloridzin helps to stop glucose absorption into the bloodstream and eliminating it through the urine.15-18
