Get Blood Sugar Manager™† glucose control formula† on your side

Concerns about blood sugar metabolism have become common. So has confusion over what to do about it. Blood Sugar Manager - glucose control formula can help.

What is blood sugar?
Blood sugar is just another way of saying “glucose in the blood.” Glucose isn’t necessarily bad. In fact, it’s the primary fuel source of the body.

Levels of blood sugar typically rise and fall throughout the day in ways that might seem unpredictable. Generally, though, the morning, or any time before we’ve “broken a fast” (breakfast, get it?) our blood sugar levels are low.

The body tries to keep us at an even keel

During the day, the pancreas keeps tabs on blood sugar levels throughout the body. If levels drop, the pancreas sends a hormone called “glucagon” to the liver. The liver converts glucagon to glucose, and blood sugar levels are kept nice and even.

Similarly, as blood sugar levels rise, the pancreas sends out insulin, which causes the liver to reel in glucose from the bloodstream, and convert it into a stored form, called “glycogen” that the body can use later on. Overall, it’s a pretty good system—when everything is working right.

Why blood sugar levels change
Food, or lack of it, can change blood sugar levels in the body. After we eat, food breaks down into its simpler parts: proteins, fats, carbohydrates. Carbohydrates—especially high sugar, carb-rich refined foods, can really boost our blood glucose levels.

Blood Sugar Manager™† glucose control formula

Blood Sugar Manager glucose control formula combines essential nutrients with powerful botanicals to promote healthy blood sugar metabolism. It provides the extra help you need in keeping glucose in balance. The formula has shown great results.
  • First, it showed a 78% improvement in the transfer rate of sugar out of the bloodstream and into the cells, where it’s burned for healthy energy.†*
  • Second, people using Blood Sugar Manager showed an 8-point improvement in blood glucose levels within 1 hour after a standardized, high-carb meal.†**
* Comparing the rate of blood glucose level’s return to baseline after a standardized meal when taking Blood Sugar Manager vs. no product.
** Comparing blood glucose levels 60 minutes after a standardized, high-sugar meal when taking Blood Sugar Manager vs. no product.

Let’s take a quick overview of just some of the ingredients included in this formula.

B-vitamins are an especially important part of this formula. Working with folic acid, B-vitamins support healthy energy, assist carbohydrate metabolism, and support cardiovascular health.
  • Chromium: One form of chromium, chromium picolinate, has been clinically shown to help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

    One small study suggests that chromium picolinate may reduce the risk of insulin resistance, and therefore possibly may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concludes, however, that the existence of such a relationship between chromium picolinate and either insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes is highly uncertain.
  • Vanadium: A trace mineral, clinical research suggests vanadium may also improve insulin response and glucose control.
  • Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a strong antioxidant.Research shows that alpha-lipoic acid improves the way glucose and insulin are used by the body. Supplementation with alpha-lipoic acid has been shown to support healthy blood sugar levels already within normal limits.

One botanical ingredient you may not have heard about before is myricetin. This compound is from the leaf and bark of Myrica cerifera, also known as Southern Bayberry. This fast-acting standardized extract helps the body assimilate sugars after a meal.

  • Bitter Melon: Bitter melon is a tropical vine from the Cucurbitaceae family. Compounds found in Momordica charantia (Bitter Melon’s official name) have structural similarities to insulin, the critical blood sugar-modulating hormone. Several studies have shown that supplementation with bitter melon can positively impact blood sugar levels already within normal limits.
  • Gymnema: Several studies have demonstrated that supplementation with this time-tested herb supports healthy blood sugar metabolism by reducing intestinal absorption of glucose.This means it can help “even out” the sugar spikes you may have noticed after eating refined or sweetened foods.
  • Banaba: A traditional Philippine herb, banaba has been used to support healthy blood sugar levels already within normal limits.

Healthy habits matter
Clearly, the best way to support healthy blood sugar levels already within normal limits is through lifestyle choices. Daily exercise, or at least 3 times a week, helps keep your metabolism humming along smoothly. Make sure to eat whole, unrefined foods. As for carbs, stick with complex carbohydrates that have a slower “burn” in the body and provide more dietary fiber.

But even with our best efforts, it’s still easy for too much sugar and refined carbs to sneak into the diet—lunches with coworkers, holiday meals, and even those days when cravings are too tough to resist. Because real life can defeat good intentions, there’s all the more reason to have a supplemental formula like Blood Sugar Manager on your side.
