Did you know nearly one in three Americans has prediabetes? Maybe even more alarming, 90 percent of those with prediabetes don’t even know they have it.

Prediabetes simply means your blood sugar levels are above normal and, long-term, that’s not a good thing. Not only are elevated blood sugar levels associated with developing Type 2 diabetes, but it can also lead to insulin resistance, or metabolic syndrome, heart disease, stroke and even Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, some doctors are beginning to refer to Alzheimer’s disease as Type 3 diabetes, due to the association between blood sugar levels and the cognitive disorder.

The good news is, there are many steps you can take to help balance your blood sugar levels. (See the article “7 Diet and Lifestyle Tips to Reduce High Blood Sugar Spikes” by Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Nicole Gould on our website or stop in for a handout.)

Additionally, we’ve seen dramatic results through supplementation. While there are many great options available, one of the most comprehensive and effective formulas I’ve seen is called Glucose Support.

Glucose Support combines a variety of research validated minerals and herbs at clinically effective doses. The formula combines chromium, vanadium and alpha lipoic acid with time-tested herbal remedies including gymnema, bitter melon and lagerstroemia, commonly called banaba leaf.

Over the years, we have received very positive feedback on this product, including some cases where people have been able to reduce or even eliminate their prescription medications. Please note, if you are currently taking glucose medications, do not use this product before consulting your doctor as it can enhance the effects of many glucose medications.
