Glucose, also known as blood sugar, levels change throughout the day and night in response to the foods you eat, when you eat them, and how frequently you exercise. Glucose is a major source of energy for most of the body’s cells, and the rise and fall of its levels is normally controlled by hormone insulin. If the body cannot maintain a healthy level of glucose for an extended period of time it can lead to diabetes and other health concerns. Diabetes occurs when either the pancreas stops producing enough insulin or the body becomes resistant to the insulin it is producing. Without insulin controlling glucose levels they often end up being too high for extended periods of time, if not constantly, and this causes frequent urination, blurry vision, confusion, fainting spells, and sometimes seizures in people who’ve never had seizures before.
Made with an superb blend of herbs and nutrients, Glucose Guard is formulated to help the body maintain healthy blood sugar levels that are in the normal range. The key herbs include Cinnamon, Gymnema Sylvestre, Banaba, Bitter Melon, and Guggul which work together to promote healthy pancreas function, insulin production and use, and lower excess glucose build up. Also added are the essential mineral Chromium Picolinate and vitamins C and E to further boost pancreatic and hormone health while protecting cells against oxidative stress. The recommended dose is one capsule three times daily with meals because new glucose is introduced to the body with each meal so taking this supplement with your meals helps it work with the body immediately upon new glucose presentation.
Gymnema works by blocking the sugar binding sites to prohibit sugar molecules from building up in the body, if insulin is not regulating the glucose then stopping the sugar from attaching to the body and accumulating is a way to work around the need for insulin and still maintain healthy glucose levels. In addition, the peptide gurmarin in gymnema interferes with the taste buds’ ability to taste sweet and bitter flavors which can encourage people to eat less sugary foods to decrease glucose levels by reducing the amount of sugar that ever enters the body.1
Banaba is an antidiabetic and antiobesity herb that aids the cells in properly using glucose and regulating blood lipids.2 When the cells use glucose properly there is less of a chance for the glucose to build up, leading to reduced disease risk and overall improved health.
Bitter melon works directly with the pancreas to improve its health and function, improve insulin production, and lower problems with insulin resistance.3 It increases how the muscle tissues that need glucose absorb it and inhibit parts of the body that don’t need glucose like the intestines and liver from absorbing too much. It is also an antioxidant working to protect cells from environmental damage and heal damaged cells, an anti-inflammatory, and an antivirus that boosts the immune system and lowers inflammation.
Chromium is an essential trace mineral that improves the way the body uses insulin, even for people with insulin resistance. It lowers fasting blood sugar and may decrease weight gain and fat accumulation in the body by lowering cholesterol and support healthy diets and exercise plans in promoting a healthy weight.4
Along with these supplements, Glucose Guard contains the vitamins C and E which are powerful antioxidants that support the immune system and cell health. Every part of the formula is designed to support health naturally, helping the body’s own systems to control glucose levels and improve overall health. Let Glucose Guard defend your body from improper glucose use and aid in an overall healthier, longer life.
