Blood Glucose Support

This formula contains Fenugreek and two other herbs traditionally known to help support normal blood sugar.

A review of ten studies found that Fenugreek significantly lowered fasting blood glucose and HbA1c a measurement of long term glucose control(Neelakantan N, et al. 2014).

Bitter Melon has shown a reduction in HbA1c and cardiovascular risk factors(Rahman IU, et al. 2015).

Research indicate that Gymnema sylvestre helps reduce fasting blood glucose and blood glucose levels after a meal(Al-Romaiyan A, et al. 2010, Pothuraju R, et al. 2014).
