Life Extension - GLYCEMIC GUARD™ 30 Vcaps
We often test blood sugar when we haven't been eating. But what about after meals? Our best in class formula contains potent Delphinol® maqui berry extract, and Clovinol® clove extract. Both affect glucose metabolism, or the way your body processes sugars from food, so you can keep your healthy after-dinner blood sugar where it is supposed to be.
We know about fasting glucose, but what about after meals? Glycemic Guard™ helps maintain already-healthy blood sugar after eating.
Glycemic Guard™ Benefits
- Helps maintain already-healthy post-meal blood sugar levels
- Supports healthy glucose absorption & gut peptide signaling
- Encourages healthy glucose production in the liver
- Promotes healthy insulin response & hemoglobin A1c levels
Most people concerned about glucose check their fasting blood sugar levels. But glucose tolerance and healthy insulin sensitivity decrease with age, which can lead to blood sugar spikes after you eat. And since fasting blood sugar levels are the gold standard for measuring blood sugar health, after-dinner blood sugar concerns can go unnoticed for years.
Delphinol® maqui berry extract
Delphinol® is a standardized extract of the maqui berry (Aristotelia chilensis) packed with health-promoting anthocyanin and delphinidin compounds. Delphinol® delays the process by which food leaves the stomach and enters the small intestine. This affects post-meal glucose and insulin spikes.
In one study, 200 mg of Delphinol® taken 30 minutes before eating profoundly affected post-prandial (that’s after-eating) glucose and insulin levels. At 60 minutes after eating, the Delphinol® group measured a 15% difference in blood sugar levels and a 57% difference in insulin compared with the control group.1 In another study, 180 mg of Delphinol® taken before breakfast led to a statistically significant change in hemoglobin A1c levels (a key indicator when it comes to blood sugar health) after just 60 days.2
Clovinol® clove bud extract
Clovinol® is a water-soluble extract of unopened clove buds (Syzygium aromaticum). It is rich in polyphenols, which promote healthy liver function. Research shows that clove extract inhibits a liver enzyme used in glycogenolysis, the natural process where the body breaks down glycogen to release glucose stored in the liver.3
One study showed that 250 mg of Clovinol® once a day resulted in an up to 27% difference in post-prandial blood sugar levels compared with baseline after 30 days, with noticeable change observable in as little as 12 days.4
