Glucocil Ingredients

The Ingredients in Glucocil

Glucocil is formulated to include fourteen natural ingredients working together to promote normal blood sugar levels.*

Proprietary Mulberry Leaf Extract

Mulberry (Morus alba) leaf has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for thousands of years. Pharmacopoeia of the Heavenly Husbandman, the first written documentation of Chinese herbal medicine (dating back to 200 B.C.), called mulberry leaf the “Divine Leaf” because of its healing and anti-aging power. Later, the Grand Materia Medica (or Compendium of Materia Medica), written in the 16th century, and the most authoritative classic Chinese herbal textbook, also described mulberry leaf as the “Divine Leaf,” saying “It can be boiled to drink as tea, and if taken often can make people wise…and the body light and ageless; it can promote beauty and strength digestion, calm spirits and stabilize moods.” *

Banaba Leaf Extract

Banaba, a tropical plant grown in the Philippines, has been used for centuries to help keep levels of blood sugar and insulin in healthy balance. The major active compound in banaba leaf—corosolic acid—improves insulin sensitivity by facilitating the glucose transporter, one important part of the insulin signaling pathway. Banaba may also inhibit the body’s ability to produce glucose from proteins and lipids. Additionally, researchers have found that banaba promotes healthy blood lipids and blood pressure, of particular importance to those people with blood sugar concerns. Mulberry leaf and banaba leaf extracts have been shown to have a synergistic effect in improving glucose metabolism.*

Berberine (Phellodendron Extract)

A recent two-part study showed that berberine supported healthy blood sugar levels significantly. A second double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 110 participants not only confirmed those results, but also showed that berberine supports healthy total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, as well as tryiglyceride levels. Other studies suggest berberine can help with blood pressure, healthy weight, and immune function.*

Chromium Picolinate

Chromium, a natural trace element, is found in nuts (like the Brazil nuts pictured at right) and fish, but an estimated 90% of American diets provide less than the minimum amount of chromium recommended by the National Academy of Sciences. It’s a “must-have” for getting glucose into your cells, because it helps increase the number of binding sites on your cells for insulin to enter, thus improving insulin sensitivity.*

Cinnamon Bark Powder

Cinnamon, a commonly used spice, has been shown to have an insulin-like biological activity, as well as an antioxidant effect. Cinnamon has been shown to support healthy serum glucose, triglycerides, and total and LDL-cholesterol levels.*

Fish Oil

Fish oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential nutrients that are important in keep heart and blood vessels healthy.* The fish oil in Glucocil comes from deep ocean waters (anchovy, herring, salmon, and sprat) and is molecularly distilled for maximum purity, potency, and reduced fish odor.*

Gymnema Sylvestre

Studies conducted on gymnema sylvestre have shown that it not only promotes normal blood sugar levels, it also regenerates the beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin and increase the glucose availability into the cells. Nicknamed “Sugar Destroyer,” gymnema has been used around the world for thousands of years.*

Insulina (Cissus sicyoides) Leaf Extract

A perennial vine native to Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, Cissus sicyoides helps reduce post-meal blood sugar elevation. In studies, Cissus sicyoides also has been shown to help support healthy blood triglyceride and glucose levels, thus suggesting it may be capable of increasing insulin sensitivity.*

Veld Grape (Cissus quadrangularis) Stem Extract

Cissus quadrangularis is a succulent vine native to Southeast Asia and West Africa, and its unique chemical constituents show promise as potent antioxidants and as efficient lipase and amylase inhibitors, providing a mechanism that is thought to have potential in supporting weight loss by means of carbohydrate and dietary fat blocking, and reduced oxidative stress.*

Vitamin B1

Vitamin B1 is an important vitamin involved in carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism, which influences the energy production process.*

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is an important vitamin involved in protein metabolism.*

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha lipoic acid is a natural molecule found inside every cell of the body, where it serves as an important regulator of cellular energy. Studies have found it not only inhibits liver production of glucose, but also helps insulin move glucose from blood into body cells, thus helping to keep blood sugar in a normal range.*

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 helps to support blood vessel health by reducing homocysteine levels in blood. The traditional use of vitamin B12 is to help maintain healthy red blood cells.*

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin found in certain foods, such as fish and cereals. It helps maintain healthy cardiovascular function, enhance bone strength, and promote joint comfort. Unfortunately, about 75% of Americans have lower than normal level vitamin D in their blood. Studies suggest that high levels of vitamin D helps promote heart, blood vessel & circulatory health.*
