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. Goats rue herbal extract, enhances the sensitivity of insulin receptors, making them more responsive to insulin.
Glucose Regulating & Diabetes Formula is specially formulated to reduce elevated blood sugar by various mechanisms and to help treat both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Each capsule contains the following as active ingredients:Pinitol, Goats Rue Extract and Gymnema sylvestre standardised extractInactive ingredients: Hypromellose (cellulose) vegetarian capsule shell (gelatin free), microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate (vegetarian – flow agent), magnesium silicate, silicon dioxide and colloidal silicon dioxide.Contains plant extracts and natural fillers, with no colourants added – therefore the colour of the capsule contents may vary slightly from batch to batch.

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.
Adults and children over 12 years of age: Take 1 capsules 3 times daily with meals or as recommended by your health care provider.
