This formula combines key nutrients, antioxidants and herbal extracts to promote broad spectrum support for healthy glucose metabolism
What Is It?
GlucoFunction is a combination of key nutrients,
antioxidants and herbal extracts designed to promote
healthy glucose uptake and metabolism, microcirculation,
and pancreatic function to support healthy glucose
Uses For GlucoFunction
Glucose Metabolism: Chromium, magnesium and zinc are key nutrients involved in glucose transport,
utilization and gluconeogenesis. Optimal plasma levels
are associated with healthy glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism and lean body mass. Additionally, a recent
study suggests a synergistic relationship between
chromium and biotin, suggesting that the combination
may provide additional support. Bis-glycinato oxo
vanadium is an organic complex of glycine and
vanadium specially designed for enhanced absorption
and tolerability. Research indicates that vanadium
promotes healthy glucose metabolism, particularly
supporting healthy hepatic and skeletal muscle
glucose utilization. Numerous studies indicate that
the water-soluble polyphenol polymers found in
Cinsulin® cinnamon promote healthy glucose and lipid metabolism, in part through supporting healthy
receptor activity. Momordica charantia, commonly known as bitter melon, is a traditional Indian vegetable noted
for its ability to support kidney health and healthy
blood glucose metabolism. Gymnema sylvestre
promotes healthy glucose uptake into the intestines
and supports enzyme activity for glucose utilization.*
Microcirculation: Vitamin C and alpha lipoic acid are
powerful antioxidants to support red blood cell and
vascular health. Additionally, vitamin C maintains
healthy red blood cell sorbitol levels. Alpha lipoic acid supports nerve health and ocular health, supporting
microcirculation, nerve conduction velocity and
oxygenation to the retina. Furthermore, studies
indicate that the water-soluble polyphenol polymers
found naturally in cinnamon may support healthy blood
Pancreatic Function: Several preliminary human trials
indicate that Gymnema sylvestre promotes healthy
pancreatic beta cell function, in part through nutritional support of the pancreas. Additionally, alpha lipoic acid
promotes healthy beta cell mitochondrial function.*
