Metabolic Xtra -
Provides a powerful combination of nutrients to support healthy insulin receptor function and signaling, and glucose metabolism.
What Is It?
Metabolic Xtra offers a powerful combination of nutrients to support healthy insulin receptor function and signaling, and glucose metabolism.*
• Enhances the expression and function of insulin
receptors with the natural plant alkaloid berberine*
In a randomized placebo-controlled trial involving
116 subjects, berberine provided statistically
significant support for glucose, lipid, and triglyceride
• Promotes healthy AMPK and SIRT1 expression to
support cellular metabolism and glucose homeostasis
In a recent randomized double-blind, placebo-
controlled 4-week study, resveratrol supported
healthy insulin signaling and antioxidant defenses*
• Modulates cell signaling for healthy insulin function with
patent-pending Zychrome™ chromium dinicocysteinate†*
Clinically studied to be twice as effective as
chromium picolinate for maintaining healthy
In a randomized placebo-controlled trial, Zychrome™
supported healthy glucose metabolism and offered
statistically significant support for antioxidant
defenses and inflammatory balance, as measured
• Supports healthy receptor function and glucose
metabolism with alpha lipoic acid*
What Is The Source?
Berberine HCl is derived from Phellodendron amurense bark and Sargent’s barberry (Berberis sargentiana). Alpha lipoic acid (thioctic acid), chromium dinicocysteinate and resveratrol are synthetic. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
Pure Encapsulations recommends 1-3 capsules per day, with meals.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Berberine has had reports of headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal bloating, hypotension and slowed heart rate in the literature. It is recommended to use resveratrol cautiously in patients with hormonal disorders and those using estrogen therapy, as resveratrol may act as either an estrogen agonist or estrogen antagonist. In rare cases, alpha lipoic acid has caused gastrointestinal upset or skin rash. Consult your physician for more information.
