Glycemic Control

Regular price $62.00 Sale

Optimize your sugar level.

Maintaining blood sugar balance requires efficient delivery of glucose to cells for energy. Without it, glucose dysregulation may occur and induce the following:

  • Coronary and atherosclerotic disease
  • Accelerated aging
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Chronic fatigability
  • Obesity and weight control problems
  • Impaired immune defense and repair

With dysregulation, blood glucose-lowering (oral hypoglycemic) medications are often prescribed. The benefits are often marginal, and a host of side effects are noted in the latest Physicians’ Desk Reference (PDR), including gastrointestinal problems, impairment of B-12 and other essential nutrients absorption, metabolic/lactic acidosis, and kidney problems. Additionally, these drugs often lose effectiveness over time and can exacerbate the sexual dysfunction commonly seen in diabetics.

Of course, medication cannot take the place of a proper diet, healthy weight, and regular exercise. However, because it is difficult for many individuals to maintain ideal diet and exercise programs, a natural aid can help.

Pure Essentials Glycemic Control offers a natural and comprehensive solution to glucose regulation, with the associated benefits of increased energy, improved immune response, and fewer side effects. Because Pure Essentials Glycemic Control produces rapid benefits without the reported adverse effects associated with oral hypoglycemic drugs, it also delivers the additional benefit of higher user satisfaction and compliance.

Ensuring blood glucose balance is critical for everyone seeking to restore or maintain good health, and is particularly indicated for the following conditions:

  • Syndrome X / Insulin resistance management. A metabolic disturbance that results in a group of symptoms including: high blood pressure, increased cardiovascular risk, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and obesity. The persistent elevations in blood glucose and insulin levels underlying the syndrome have been shown to precede Type II diabetes, and may be balanced with Pure Essentials Glycemic Control.
  • Type I Diabetes (IDDM). Balanced blood sugar with Pure Essentials Glycemic Control may help insulin dependent diabetics reduce their need for insulin.
  • Type II Diabetes (NIDDM). Risk of this form of diabetes increases with age, weight, and decreased physical activity. Using Pure Essentials Glycemic Control as a primary supplement to maintain blood sugar balance, along with dietary control and regular exercise, may reduce or eliminate the need for insulin and help prevent the kidney, eye, and heart damage associated with poor glucose control.
  • Weight Management/Obesity. Because excess blood glucose from impaired carbohydrate metabolism signals fat cells to store lipids, resulting in weight gain, Pure Essentials Glycemic Control can modify carbohydrate metabolism, both promoting weight loss and preventing weight gain (or regain).

Overall, Pure Essentials Glycemic Control is an excellent tool to balance blood sugar for those needing improved glucose and/or energy regulation.

Ingredient highlight

Pure Essentials Glycemic Control is unique, comprehensive, and provides synergistic nutrients for better blood sugar and energy regulation. Its unique herbal nutrient combination includes:

  • French lilac (Galega officinalis) is a plant that has been known since the Middle Ages to relieve the symptoms of diabetes mellitus. Galegine (or isoamylene guanidine) is the active ingredient in it that lowers blood sugar by decreasing insulin. Chemical derivatives from galegine include metformin from the biguanide class of antidiabetic medications, which was approved by the FDA in 1995.
  • Bitter melon / Marah (Momordica elegans) is a plant related to the Chinese cucumber. It is commonly consumed as a vegetable in Asia and has long been used as an adjunct in diabetes management. Additionally, it has anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic properties. Bitter melon also has the potential to down-regulate insulin and is also thought to slow down the aging process.
  • Huckleberry / Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is a shrub that has been used traditionally in the treatment of diabetes, and research suggests that its leaf extract can lower blood sugar levels.
  • Chromium picolinate is a potent form of chromium that helps blood sugar metabolism, improves glucose tolerance, and lowers body weight while increasing lean body mass.
  • Vanadium ascorbate is a trace mineral that enhances sugar metabolism and reduces the need for insulin in both Type I and Type II diabetics.
  • Chaste tree berry (Agnus castus) improves hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis function, enhancing the often overlooked but important hormonal influence on blood glucose. Hormonal dysregulation and distress increase risk from and complications of Syndrome X/insulin resistance. Additionally, diabetes becomes more brittle and difficult to control when hormonal dysregulation exists.
