Berberine+ GlucoDefense® delivers TRIPLE SUPPORT for healthy blood sugar:

  • BERBERINE to support normal blood glucose, insulin, and blood lipid levels
  • CINNAMON added for more potency and bioavailability
  • CHROMIUM added to promote insulin efficiency

Berberine+ GlucoDefense takes the power of Berberine and kicks it up a notch—adding the renowned ingredients cinnamon and chromium!

My berberine supplement Berberine+ GlucoDefense is an advanced version of my best-selling Berberine, containing a combination of ingredients in the dosages shown in clinical studies to support fasting blood glucose and normal insulin levels, and normal triglyceride and cholesterol levels. The research also shows that when berberine and cinnamon are combined, bioavailability and potency of berberine increases! By combining berberine, cinnamon, and chromium all together in one supplement, I've developed my ultimate secret weapon in the blood sugar battle. In fact, given the dramatic results my patients have seen with Berberine, plus the ever-growing body of clinical research, Berberine+ GlucoDefense is now one of my top recommendations for blood sugar support. What's more, instead of concocting their own "formulas," my patients—and now all my customers—have an effective, all-in-one supplement ready to go!

Why did I combine berberine and cinnamon? Traditional Chinese medicine holds the key.

Long before "modern" medicine, traditional Chinese doctors applied their wisdom to naturally treat many ailments. One of their specialties was combining herbs that worked better when taken together than taken individually—which included berberine and cinnamon to treat blood sugar and related conditions. And though this was widely accepted in Chinese medicine, no clinical research was available for today's scientists who were eager to duplicate the results for themselves. Until now…In a recent study analyzing the effects of cinnamon on the absorption of berberine, it was shown that cinnamon promotes berberine absorption in the intestine, increases concentration of berberine in the blood, and lengthens the time it stays in the system.1

The results of this study illustrate that cinnamon can promote berberine absorption in the intestine, increase its blood concentration, and lengthen its detention time in healthy male volunteers.

3 Powerful Ingredients Triple Your Healthy Blood Glucose Support!

Berberine+ GlucoDefense contains the exact same researched dosage—1,500 mg—of berberine as my original formula. Plus, I've added 2 new ingredients—cinnamon and chromium—for even more support!

  1. BERBERINE—A plant alkaloid and naturally occurring compound found in the roots, rhizomes, and stem bark of various plants, berberine works by targeting a key regulator of metabolism, the AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) enzyme. AMPK regulates glucose uptake and the synthesis of glucose transporters—which move glucose out of your blood and into your cells, where it is converted to energy. Berberine may also increase the number and activity of the insulin receptors, promoting insulin sensitivity. On top of that, AMPK facilitates the burning of fatty acids in your cells, which is why it is a powerful tool for helping keep blood lipid levels in check.
  2. CINNAMON—Well known for its blood sugar benefits, cinnamon contains a water-soluble polyphenol called methylhydroxychalcone (MHCP). Evidence suggests that MHCP may help activate insulin receptors and work synergistically with insulin to improve insulin sensitivity, which helps increase glucose utilization in the body.
  3. CHROMIUM—An essential trace element required for normal fat and carbohydrate metabolism, chromium enhances insulin sensitivity by increasing the number of binding sites on cells for insulin to allow for better transport of glucose into the cells for energy.

With Berberine+ GlucoDefense, I've taken healthy blood glucose support to the next level, incorporating 3 individual dynamos into one super-charged team! But I couldn't have done it without my ace research department. They went above and beyond, incorporating all of my "must-have" requirements:

  • It had to contain the same 1,500 mg dosage as my original Berberine
  • It had to include the researched dosages of cinnamon and chromium
  • And those research dosages had to be provided in the same easy 3 pills per day amount (1 with each meal)

Once again, my team exceeded expectations, and so Berberine+ GlucoDefense was born!

Hi I started using your Berberine FlucoDefense to help lower my blood sugar. It works but not high enough levels of the Chromium to lower the blood sugar or at least by much. I would need to about triple the dosage to do any real good. I have the same problem with most 'nutritional' supplement - the companies just don't put a high enough dosage in them. Please consider upping the dosages in your supplements so your customers can afford the amount that they need. Buying three times the amount makes the cost prohibitive for most people. Thank you Dor

Previously, I wrote that the Berberine caused me to have cramping, joint pain and muscle pain. I was wrong. It wasn't the Berberine, it was diet soft drinks. Sorry!!! The Berberine is wonderful. My Blood sugar has dropped(…). I have been able to control the blood sugar without medication thanks to Berberine.

After taking for just a couple of months my unexplained uncontrolled blood sugar (has) returned back to a normal range. I've changed nothing else, just started taking this supplement. Just received my 2nd 7 mo supply. Highly recommended.

This is the only product I have tried that lowers my blood sugar without uncomfortable side effects. I do need to monitor my blood glucose, though, as if I take the Berberine and my daily activity level is higher than usual, the readings can drop a little too low.

Science and Quality

Berberine

In one study, participants were given 1,500 mg of berberine. Significant decreases compared to baseline were seen in 3-month healthy blood sugar levels, fasting blood glucose (FBG), postprandial blood glucose (PBG), and triglycerides (TG). FBG and PBG reached their lowest values at week 5 and remained at those levels until the end of the study.2 In another study, participants were given 500–1,500 mg of berberine per day. A mean 25% decrease in LDL and 25% decrease in triglycerides were observed.3

Cinnamon

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study examining the effects of 1g cinnamon daily (the equivalent dosage in Berberine+ GlucoDefense) against a placebo—participants showed significant improvement (reduction) in fasting serum glucose, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol with no significant changes in the placebo groups. Higher dosages (3g and 6g) were also included in the study with similar results.4

Chromium

Research at the 200 mcg dosage (the dosage in Berberine+ GlucoDefense) suggests that chromium supplementation helps promote insulin efficiency and maintain normal blood glucose levels.5
