How it works?

GlucoBalance® is a uniquely comprehensive formula for maintaining healthy blood glucose levels naturally. GlucoBalance® combines 8 scientifically researched ingredients, including Chromium, Cinnamon and Alpha-Lipoic Acid, to support blood sugar control, insulin function, and healthy metabolism. 

If you haven’t already, we also recommend reading ‘Symptoms of high and low blood sugar’, and here we explain what you can expect with the advanced GlucoBalance®.

Blood glucose support

First and foremost, GlucoBalance® provides unique support to balance blood sugar. 

Traditionally used in Ayurvedic and Chinese cultures, Chromium is an essential mineral that supports normal macronutrient metabolism, converting the food we eat into sources of energy for the body to function. ‘Macronutrients’ are carbohydrates, protein and fat.

Chromium also contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. It plays a role in how insulin helps regulate blood glucose levels in the body. GlucoBalance® includes a clinically studied dose (200 micrograms) of Chromium, in its picolinate form, which is a highly bio-available form for optimal absorption and efficacy.

Fenugreek Seed is a clover-like herb, traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine for supporting healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Research indicates Fenugreek Seeds can help maintain normal glucose levels in the blood and support insulin metabolism. This may, in turn, reduce the risk of developing conditions like diabetes and its associated health complications. For those with Type 2 diabetes, it may help to provide better control over blood glucose levels in conjunction with a healthy, balanced lifestyle with the right exercise and dietary regime.5-8

Cinnamon, also traditionally used in Ayurvedic and Chinese remedies, has always been prized for the vast array of active botanical compounds it naturally contains. Cinnamon’s natural flavour and sweetness are attributed to ‘Cinnamaldehyde’, an important active constituent with well-researched antioxidant properties. Cinnamon helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of a healthy lifestyle. Research shows that cinnamon plays a role in helping the body maintain a healthy composition.9-10,15

GlucoBalance® provides the clinically studied Ceylon Cinnamon at the optimal dose of 750 mg. 

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a naturally occurring antioxidant that is naturally produced in our body and found in foods including beetroot, carrots, broccoli and spinach to help break down carbohydrates and produce energy.

Myo-inositol, which is also referred to as Vitamin B8, is commonly found in foods including beans, grains, nuts, fresh fruit and vegetables. Inositol exists in many different forms, but Myo-inositol is the type that is most available in nature, with the most bioavailability which supports efficacy and absorption for the best results.

GlucoBalance® provides 300mg of Myo-inositol, which is a major component of our cell membranes and supports our cells in responding to a variety of functions, from hormones to neurotransmitters and growth factors. Ongoing clinical research also suggests it may influence the action of insulin.

Bitter Melon, also known as ‘bitter gourd’, is a plant with a naturally bitter taste and as it ripens, the bitter flavour is enhanced. It is thought to support normal glucose metabolism through the action of its active constituents, charantine, anthocyanosides, and beta- and alpha-carotene.

Maintains steady energy levels

GlucoBalance® is formulated to balance your blood sugar levels to support your energy through each day. Keeping blood glucose levels balanced can help the body avoid sudden dips in energy levels, keeping them steady throughout the day. Sustained energy release can also help combat symptoms of poor focus and concentration.

Along with dietary and lifestyle modifications, physical activity, eating more wholegrains, fibre and protein, and staying away from artificial or processed foods and sweeteners, GlucoBalance® can support steady energy levels so you can thrive.

Chromium supports the metabolism of macronutrients and plays a role in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins to support the body’s use of energy. Cinnamon has been scientifically researched for its effect on mental and physical fatigue.

Digestive wellbeing

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has traditionally been used as a home remedy for flavouring or preserving foods for many years.

GlucoBalance® provides a convenient way for you to include ACV in your daily routine, especially if you wish to avoid the strong taste or smell associated with the liquid. A daily serving of GlucoBalance® provides 200mg of ACV.

Note: Apple cider vinegar is also naturally acidic and it is suggested that drinking it on its own may cause damage to the oesophagus, especially if drunk daily.

Research shows Fenugreek Seeds support and balance the metabolism of fats and contribute to maintaining the physiological gastric pH.

Bitter Melon provides a natural source of soluble dietary fibre which supports digestion. Evidence shows that the protein extracts from different types of bitter melon can help block the activity of two particular enzymes (Alpha-amylase and Alpha glucosidase) which digest carbohydrates and contribute to the rise of blood glucose levels after meals. 

Cinnamon can also support digestion and help maintain normal stomach gas and stomach comfort.

General wellbeing and healthy heart support

Mental wellbeing

When there is a lack of insulin entering the brain, feelings of anxiety, irritability and mood swings may occur. This is because Insulin works by taking serotonin (our happy hormone) into the brain, where it supports and balances the mood and lowers feelings of anxiety.

Balancing blood glucose levels with GlucoBalance®, and with optimal dietary choices and particular nutrient intakes, can help the brain receive serotonin via insulin, and support our mental and general wellbeing.

Healthy heart

In the long term, unmanaged blood glucose imbalances can contribute to cardiovascular diseases. As seen in research, botanicals may support the heart, lipids and circulation in various ways and provide significant antioxidant properties. Antioxidants can help protect our cells from oxidative stress, protecting them from damage and reducing the development of chronic health conditions, including heart disease.

Diet & Type 2 Diabetes

The most common cause of Type 2 diabetes is a poor diet of excessive levels of refined sugars and refined foods that cause spikes in blood sugar levels over a sustained period of time. While some people will need the additional support of medication once diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, it can often be controlled by a carefully managed diet and exercise. Our top tips are incorporating high protein complex carbohydrates into your diet where possible, such as buckwheat and quinoa, and avoiding white and refined foods such as white bread, white rice and some pasta.
