Glucose Regulating & Diabetes Formula

Contains: Gymnema sylvestre herbal extract to help slow the transport of carbohydrates from the intestine into the blood stream, reducing their glycaemic (sugar-elevating) burden. It also stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin, thereby lowering blood-sugar levels. Pinitol mimics insulin and hastens the transport of glucose from the blood stream into the cell, thereby further reducing blood-sugar. Goat’s rue herbal extract, enhances the sensitivity of insulin receptors, making them more responsive to insulin.

Pharmacological Action

Pharmacological Action

Pinitol is a precursor of d-chiro-inositol and has been shown to have hypoglyceamic effects by mimicking insulin and thereby considerably increasing the ability of muscle cells to absorb glucose. Goats rue extract is chemically similar to guanidine and works by enhancing the sensitivity of receptor cells. Gymnema sylvestre seems to reduce intestinal absorption of glucose and may stimulate pancreatic beta cell function, increasing the release of insulin. Gynema sylvestre can increase the serum C-peptide levels, suggesting an increase in endogenous insulin secretion.
