The Glucose Health® Formula

 

Glucose Health® is your formula for delicious iced tea & diabetic nutrition!

Make the commitment to a better future by living healthier today with Glucose Health®. A daily commitment to even a modestly more active lifestyle, better nutrition and normal body weight and composition, can significantly reduce the chances of developing pre-diabetes and Type-2 diabetes and its many related complications including cardovascular disease, stroke, nephropathy (kidney damage) and neuropathy (nerve damage). The ingredients in the Glucose Health® formula may help you maintain healthy blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol plus regular digestive health.

The relevance of the ingredients in the Glucose Health® formula to persons concerned with diabetes is validated by clinical data (published in peer-reviewed medical journals or by other credible sources such as the American Diabetes Association). We have compiled a selection of these studies for your review below. 

Fibersol®-2 (Soluble Dietary Fiber)

Pomegranate

Every serving of Glucose Health® Iced Tea is a "Good Source of Fiber"; a statement which can only be made by products which contain beneficial amounts of dietary fiber.  Glucose Health® is blended with Fibersol®-2, a unique 100% soluble fiber, which, more than two decades of clinical data indicates, may help slow absorption of dietary sugars and fats; may help reduce post-prandial (after-meal)  blood sugar levels (improving glycemic response); and may help maintain regular digestive health. To learn more about soluble dietary fiber, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Soluble Extract of Banaba Leaf

White Tea

Banaba Leaf is the single most compelling alternative or traditional remedy for diabetes. For thousands of years in India, Banaba Leaf has been used in Ayurvedic medicine, one of the world’s oldest medical systems, for the management of diabetes. In 1940, the first clinical research observing the hypoglycemic and anti-hyperlipidemic properties of the naturally occurring corosolic acid in Banaba Leaf, was published. To learn more about Banaba Leaf and corosolic aced, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Management of Diabetes and Its Complications with Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa L.) and Corosolic Acid.

High Biovailability Trace Mineral - Chromium Picolinate

Chromium

High bioavailability trace minerals are more effective because they are more easily absorbed in the body. Chromium Picolinate is one of the naturally occurring compounds shown in scientific research to have a relationship to blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol. To learn more about Chromium Picolinate, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Chromium and polyphenols from cinnamon improve insulin sensitivity. 

Glucose and insulin responses to dietary chromium supplements: a meta-analysis.

Elevated intakes of supplemental chromium improve glucose and insulin variables in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

High Biovailability Trace Mineral - Manganese Citrate

Chromium

High bioavailability trace minerals are more effective because they are more easily absorbed in the body. Manganese Citrate is one of the naturally occurring compounds shown in scientific research to have a relationship to blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol. To learn more about Manganese Citrate, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Blood metals concentration in type 1 and type 2 diabetics.

High Biovailability Trace Mineral - Zinc Picolinate

Chromium

High bioavailability trace minerals are more effective because they are more easily absorbed in the body. Zinc Picolinate is one of the naturally occurring compounds shown in scientific research to have a relationship to blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol. To learn more about Chromium Picolinate, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Blood metals concentration in type 1 and type 2 diabetics.

Vitamin B6  

Raspberries

Vitamin B6 is important for good health. To learn more about Vitamin B6, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Vitamin B status in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with and without incipient nephropathy.

Vitamin B12

Raspberries

Persons with diabetes are at risk for Vitamin B12 can be deficient compared to the general population. To learn more about Vitamin B12, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Biotin (Vitamin B7)

Raspberries

Biotin also known as Vitamin B7 is important for good health. To learn more about Biotin, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Chromium picolinate and biotin combination improves glucose metabolism in treated, uncontrolled overweight to obese patients with type 2 diabetes.

Sweetened with Sucralose

Raspberries

Sucralose is a sweetener with zero calories and has no impact on your blood sugar levels. To learn more about Sucralose, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

100% Decaffeinated Black Teas

DecafIcedTea

The relationship between caffeine and diabetes is surprising.  While tea (and coffee) contain natural compounds which may be beneficial for metabolic syndrome and general health, caffeine has been shown to impair the metabolism of glucose in the blood.  See the American Diabetes Association linked article below.  Catechins - particularly epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG - are one of the naturally occurring compounds shown in scientific research to have a relationship to blood sugar, triglycerides and cholesterol. Catechins are found in tea leaves. To learn more about catechins in tea, please read the following clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals sourced from the National Institutes of Health, Library of Medicine:

Caffeine impairs glucose metabolism in type 2 diabetes.
