Healthy glucose metabolism
Blood glucose management
Blood sugar balance
Pancreas support
Decrease sugar cravings
Reduce insulin resistance & glucose intolerance

Glucose Balancer is a comprehensive herbal and mineral formula designed to support the pancreas for healthy glucose metabolism and blood glucose management.

The ingredients in Glucose Balancer work by improving the markers for glucose regulation and metabolism, increase glycemic control through managing blood glucose levels, improve glucose tolerance, enhance the stimulation and activity of insulin, and maintain stable blood sugar levels through proper insulin utilization. Supporting the pancreas and blood glucose balance will help decrease sugar cravings, and help protect vascular, vision, and nerve health against complications associated with high blood sugar.

Multi-Targeted Action for Blood Sugar Control

 

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum)

Beneficial compound: 4-hydroxyisoleucine (amino acid)

  • Hypoglycemic agent acting to lower blood glucose1,2
  • Reduce and regulate insulin resistance3
  • Improve glycemic control3
  • Improve insulin sensitivity to make insulin more effective3
  • Increase glucose-dependent insulin secretion in human beta-islet cells4

Bilberry (Blueberry)

Beneficial compound: 4-hydroxyisoleucine (amino acid)

  • Protect pancreatic β-islet cell function (insulin secretion)6
  • Reduce insulin resistance2,5
  • Improve insulin sensitivity in muscle and adipose tissue5

Zinc (citrate)

Beneficial action: Insulin sensitizer

  • Mimic insulin to improve insulin signaling leading to glucose uptake11
  • Improve markers of glucose regulation (fasting glucose,HbA1c levels, 2 h post prandial blood glucose)12
  • Improve glycemic control12
  • Improve pancreatic β-islet cell function (insulin secretion)12

Vanadium
(HVP chelate)

Beneficial action:
Insulin sensitizer

  • Improve insulin sensitivity of liver and muscle cells to the effects of insulin1
  • Improve glycemic control1
  • Mimic metabolic actions of insulin to enhance activity of insulin1,7,8,9
  • Lower plasma glucose levels8
  • Improve markers of glucose regulation (fasting glucose, HbA1c levels)9

Chromium (picolinate)

Beneficial action: Insulin sensitizer

  • Improve insulin sensitivity of the cells to the effects of insulin1
  • Improve glycemic control10
  • Improve markers of glucose regulation (fasting glucose,HbA1c levels)1,10
  • Component of glucose tolerance factor to enhance function of insulin1
  • Mimic insulin to improve insulin signaling leading to glucose uptake11
