AFTER-MEAL BLOOD SUGAR MANAGEMENT
It is normal for blood glucose to mildly rise after eating (<40 mg/dL within 2 hours after food). However, if your after-meal rises are dramatic and frequent (referred to as postprandial hyperglycemia when sugars are > 180 mg/dL), they can cause a higher A1C than your fasting blood sugar readings might imply. This can directly increase your risk of serious diabetes complications. In fact, postprandial glucose is the leading cause of high A1C readings in most people. Furthermore, a rapid rise in blood glucose levels after meals has been shown to affect the ability to concentrate, stay alert, and perform physical tasks.
DUAL ROBUST BLOCKING MECHANISMS
HELPS BLOCK SUGAR ABSORPTION
Berberine is an herbal compound found in plants used in ancient Chinese medicine. Berberine and Gymnema, when used together, have a powerful ability to block alpha-glucosidase, an intestinal enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates into simple sugars. This leaves many sugars unabsorbed in the digestive system. When fewer sugars are absorbed, fewer calories are absorbed - which can help you achieve your weight loss goals. Less sugar in the blood also means less chance of sugars being converted into body fat by insulin.
HELPS BLOCK CRAVINGS
Gymnema Sylvestra has been used in ancient Indian medical practice to reduce sugar cravings – its name actually means “Sugar Destroyer”. Blocking sugar receptors helps to cut cravings for sweets, sugary foods, and beverages. Additionally, slowing absorption of sugar from foods helps the body feel fuller longer – meaning you have less urge to eat!
RESEARCH BEHIND THE FORMULA…
Berberine in clinical studies with our doses…
…has shown significant decreases in HbA1C from 9.5% to 7.5%.
…Another analysis showed that using berberine can lower HbA1C by up to 0.71%.
... reduces cholesterol and decreases markers of liver damage in diabetics
** Research supports a 500 mg dose per serving of Berberine to promote healthy blood sugars and insulin sensitivity in a different mechanism than commonly used prescription medications. Higher doses could lead to berberine toxicity and lower doses may not be effective. Do not take more than directed on the bottle.
Gymnema in clinical studies with our doses…
... has demonstrated benefits in both Pre-Diabetes and Diabetes.
…reduced mean fasting sugars by 11%, after meal sugars by 13%, and HbA1C by up to 1.1%.
…Patients were able to reduce their drug dosages, and some people were even able to stop their prescription medications and maintain normal blood sugar levels. Another study showed 16% of patients were able to decrease prescription medicine intake while taking Gymnema.
…has shown a 5–6% decrease in body weight, as well as reduced food intake likely due to appetite suppression. Patients also had an improved BMI and smaller waist circumference.
