Potomac, MD (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Healthy Directions, LLC, today announced the launch of Berberine+ GlucoDefense™, a unique blood sugar supplement formulated by Julian Whitaker, MD, that safely and naturally supports normal blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C levels, as well as healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Berberine+ GlucoDefense™ contains three powerful ingredients: berberine, a compound found in plants that has been clinically shown to support normal blood glucose, A1C, and blood lipid levels; cinnamon, which, along with its own blood sugar benefits, was recently demonstrated to promote the absorption of berberine and increase its concentration in the blood; and chromium, an essential trace mineral required for normal fat and carbohydrate metabolism that also helps maintain normal insulin levels.
“Since I introduced berberine to my patients and customers about a year ago, it has received rave reviews for its positive effects on blood sugar and lipid levels,” says Dr. Julian Whitaker, an expert on nutritional supplementation widely known for helping people achieve and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. “That’s one of the reasons I was thrilled when I discovered the research showing that cinnamon—which is one of the other blood sugar supplements I have recommended for years—enhances berberine’s bioavailability and increases its potency and efficacy.”
Berberine+ GlucoDefense™ is the only combination berberine supplement that provides the scientifically-researched daily dosages of berberine (1,500 mg), cinnamon (1 g), and chromium (200 mcg). Better still, these ingredients have not been associated with the severe gastrointestinal side effects that many people experience with other blood sugar supplements.
“Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is a top concern for millions of people, so I am delighted that Healthy Directions and Dr. Whitaker were able to work together to develop an advanced blood sugar supplement that provides a safe, effective, and comprehensive approach,” says Healthy Directions CEO Connie Hallquist.
Berberine+ GlucoDefense™ is available at drwhitaker.com/ and healthydirections.com/.
