“I’ve been using Glucose Essentials for about a year. I have lost 35 pounds…and [my] 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Additional Cholesterol/triglyceride Benefit My husband has been taking this for 8 months and 4 months into the treatment he had an unexpected lowering of his triglycerides and bad cholesterol. I was very jealous of his success and decided to give it a try to see if it would help me. I do not have a glucose issue. My cholesterol went down to 168 from 229 and triglycerides are under a 100. My husbands most recent cholesterol was 178 and triglycerides under 100. Thank you Dr. Whitaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good this is an awesome product! I have tried literally dozens of other products for blood sugar support and I have found that this one is by far the best! I plan on adding the berberine product to this. I have tried both separately and I'm going to see how they work together. This along with a healthy diet and exercise should work for anyone no matter how severely diabetic you have become.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply-It Works I started out with 3\day and had a very queasy stomach (at times I felt as though I was going to throw up). I stopped taking them until my stomach settled down and now I take 2/day with no problems. All through this my blood sugar has been 75-120 in the morning and less than 150 the rest of the day; unless I cheat on food intake.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Glucose Essentials I am not sure whether I like this product or not, it was too hard on my bowels and I had to stop. If you have any suggestions on how to offset that, I would be interested!!

Scientific Support

Portusana®

Swiss discovery improves your blood sugar

Scientists hit blood sugar pay dirt with the Swiss discovery of Portusana Purslane Extract. Portusana, from an edible leafy plant, improves insulin sensitivity and blocks dietary glucose from entering your bloodstream. In one pilot clinical trial, researchers found that Portusana reduced blood sugar levels after only 2–3 weeks.1

Silbinol

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.2

Chromium

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.

Vanadyl Sulfate

Studies show that vanadyl sulfate can drop fasting glucose by 20% in just four weeks3—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.

GlucoHelp®

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.

GS4 Plus®

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.4
