Glucose Essentials® will help you win the
blood sugar battle once and for all!
Folks, get ready to impress your doctor with great glucose numbers! Glucose Essentials contains the recent Swiss discovery called Portusana® Purslane Extract, which takes my acclaimed formula to a whole new level. It not only promotes normal blood sugar levels and better insulin sensitivity—but it also helps lower the critical hemoglobin A1C blood sugar marker! But this is more than numbers on a blood test—these are benefits you’re going to feel. By helping to even out the blood sugar spikes and drops, Portusana helps to give you a slow, steady supply of energy.
Altogether, Glucose Essentials will help:
- Balance blood sugar
- Lower A1C levels
- Improve insulin sensitivity
- Fight sugar cravings
- And much more!
“I’ve been using Glucose Essentials for about a year. I have lost 35 pounds and my A1C levels and daily readings have been reduced.”*
— Internet product review
Improve your cells’ insulin sensitivity
While the studies on Portusana are excellent, the star ingredient in Glucose Essentials is Silbinol®, a pure, concentrated extract of the Indian kino tree. Silbinol helps remove sugar from your bloodstream and transport it into your cells. Read more about the studies behind Silbinol as well as the importance of the trace mineral chromium here.
Boost your insulin efficiency
Even with healthy gateways, sometimes your insulin needs more help to move enough glucose from your bloodstream into your cells. Vanadyl sulfate, a naturally occurring bright blue mineral, comes to the rescue by mimicking your body’s own natural insulin.
WOW! Vanadyl sulfate’s brilliant blue color is one of the most vibrant hues found in nature. Glucose Essentials harnesses this miracle mineral’s full power with the proven research dose.
“Within a week my fasting glucose [improved]. I gave my doctor a bottle of your Glucose Essentials and explained what I had done. He said, ‘Whatever you are doing keep doing it.’ I am!”* — Bill
I’m always looking for the most advanced ways to keep you healthy, and your blood sugar is no exception. My Glucose Essentials formula is based on the most up-to-date research, and it’s the foundation of my Advanced Glucose Program. I also recommend that you take the Forward Plus Daily Regimen to meet all your daily nutrient needs. Blood sugar and insulin play key roles in several important health areas. That’s why I encourage you to support your glucose levels by eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, exercising regularly, and taking targeted nutrients—all of which help maintain normal blood sugar levels.

Glucose Essentials got my wife's blood sugar down to NORMAL level. I could not ask for more!
after taking glucose essentials for about 2 months - my sugar is normal again. I am about to try extra streng restful night essentials - its on order. I really hope it works. Insomnia is my biggest problem. Thanks Dr. Whitaker.
Hasn't lowered A1c and caused diarhia.
I have been using Glucose Essentials (GE) for about 1 year. I am on that track now. I have lost about 35 lbs with about 15-20 more to go. My A1C has been reduced as well as my daily readings. Thank you for all of your research and your willingness to be "out in front" of the medical critics.
I live over seas and only get to my regular doctor when I come back to the states... I started taking this supplement and... the last time I had my [level] checked it was down to 7.1! This product is working wonders for me!
... I recommend the Forward Plus multivitamins along with the glucose essentials, the fish oil and the cinnamon complex. Dr. Whitaker's book on reversing Diabetes is a must read if you are serious about getting off the prescription meds and insulin. Excerise and eat right and take the vitamins and supplements. They do work. I did not rate 5 stars because i think they are too expensive.
I decided I wanted to give off the SolaStar insulin I was taking along with metformin and glimiperide to control my Type 2 diabetes, so I tried Glucose Essentials. I started off with the 3 capsules per day before each meal. It might have been better to start off with 1 capsule, however; it took 3 months for my digestive tract to settle down. I've been taking it for six months now. My A1C dropped from 7.3 to 6.9. My doctor was a bit wary about my stopping the insulin, but when he saw the A1C he said to keep it up. It controls my fasting blood sugar as well as the insulin did, and controls the after-meal peak better than insulin did. A side effect is that it makes me feel fuller much more quickly; I'm eating about half of what I used to and still feel full, and I've lost 20 pounds.
I can pretty well predict how it helps me get through the day, if I eat right and take them at the right time. (Also, I) am impressed with the Forward Gold Vitamin plan--I am 69.
lower blood sugar
I am a pre diabetic, and for the past six years since 2006 I have an a1/c reading of 6.4. Since using GLUCOSE ESSENTIALS my last a1/c reading was 6.2. I am thrilled.
Swiss discovery improves your blood sugar in 3 ways
Scientists hit blood sugar pay dirt with the Swiss discovery of Portusana Purslane Extract. Portusana, from an edible leafy plant, improves insulin sensitivity, blocks dietary glucose from entering your bloodstream, and improves hemoglobin A1C levels (a long-term measurement of your body’s ability to control glucose).
Two separate, very significant studies show impressive results using Portusana. In one pilot clinical trial, researchers found that Portusana reduced blood sugar levels after only 2–3 weeks.1 A second, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study saw subjects’ A1C levels decrease.2 Great numbers, plus Portusana evens out glucose spikes and drops—a benefit you’re going to feel.
Clinical trials showed that patients taking 450 mg of Silbinol daily for 12 weeks had an average drop of 32 points in their fasting glucose.3
The trace mineral chromium also improves insulin sensitivity by increasing the number of “gateways” on your cell walls that allow glucose to enter. And Glucose Essentials gives you a generous 198 mcg of chromium in the highly absorbable polynicotinate form to get the job done.
Studies show that vanadyl sulfate can drop fasting glucose by 20% in just four weeks4—plus improve insulin sensitivity. But most supplements give you one-tenth of what you need. I insisted on using the same full research dose in Glucose Essentials that I’ve had great success with at the Whitaker Wellness Institute. So you get a completely safe dose that’s proven effective.
But that’s not all. Glucose Essentials includes another insulin efficiency booster called GlucoHelp banaba leaf extract that also enhances glucose transport and promotes normal blood sugar levels.
Slow the flow of dietary sugars into your bloodstream
Gymnema extract slows the release of sugar from the foods you eat, keeping your blood sugar steady. And the special GS4 Plus form in Glucose Essentials has been shown in clinical trials to lower blood glucose and A1C levels.5
