Shaklee Glucose Regulation Complex is a unique blend of scientifically supported ingredients that keep blood sugar levels steady and promote efficient glucose use*
Information About Shaklee Glucose Regulation Complex
Shaklee Glucose Regulation Complex provides natural support for normal glucose (blood sugar) metabolism. It helps the body transport glucose (an energy source) to your cells, making your entire system more efficient and effective at making use of blood sugar, and helping you maintain normal blood sugar levels.*
Shaklee's unique and proprietary combination of nutrients also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid. Several studies have shown Alpha Lipoic Acid to be a powerful and effective antioxidant that enhances the effect of vitamins C, and E. This the body to more effectively use these important nutrients.*
THE PROBLEM - HIGH LEVELS OF BLOOD SUGAR (GLUCOSE)
Recently, the number of people who have high blood sugar levels has been increasing rapidly in all age groups. Specifically, the incidence of high blood sugar among people in their 30’s has jumped 70% in the past decade alone. An estimated 16 million Americans... including at least 300,000 children... have seriously high levels of glucose in their blood.
Role of Insulin
Passage of glucose from the blood into the cells, which helps produce energy, is normally controlled by the hormone, insulin. In a healthy individual, insulin attaches to special receptors on the surface of cells, signaling the cell walls to open so that the glucose can enter. Once inside the cell, glucose can be stored or burned for energy.
If, however, insulin doesn’t do its job as the door opener, high levels of the blood sugar, glucose, and insulin remain in the blood. Cells may not have enough stored energy for normal functions, and, additionally the extra glucose may get stored as fat.
Maintaining a normal blood sugar level (less than 100 mg/dL after fasting for at least eight hours) is an important part of controlling long-term health.
Some estimate that one in four Americans, approximately 70 million people, could benefit from dietary support to help the body make efficient use of the insulin it already produces.
SHAKLEE GLUCOSE REGULATION COMPLEX*:
Glucose Regulation Complex provides a unique blend of specific scientifically supported minerals, a botanical, and antioxidants that can help promote normal blood sugar levels.*
WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM SHAKLEE GLUCOSE REGULATION COMPLEX*?
- Helps promote efficient glucose use.* Magnesium, chromium, zinc and vanadium support the body’s ability to process glucose.*
- Aids in normal glucose transport into cells and normal responsiveness of cells to insulin.* Banaba leaf extract and the minerals magnesium and chromium promote efficient transport of glucose from the blood into cells, promoting normal blood glucose levels.*
- Uses three powerful antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid, zinc, and taurine, also contained in Shaklee Glucose Regulation Complex, to help protect the integrity of cells so they can respond normally to insulin.*
- Helps sustain energy and prevent blood sugar crashes that can lead to carbohydrate cravings.* When taken as part of a healthful, high-fiber diet, chromium and banaba leaf extract can help stave off blood sugar crashes that can lead to feelings of low energy, hunger, carbohydrate cravings, and between-meal snacking.*
- Provides antioxidant protection and helps to recycle vitamins C and E for additional antioxidant activity.* Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant in itself, but it also helps recharge the antioxidant protection of vitamins C and E.* Zinc and chromium also have significant effects on oxidative stress.

WHAT’S CONTAINED IN SHAKLEE GLUCOSE REGULATION COMPLEX*?
SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT FOR THE INGREDIENTS IN SHAKLEE GLUCOSE REGULATION COMPLEX*:
WHY CHOOSE SHAKLEE GLUCOSE REGULATION COMPLEX*?
- Banaba leaf extract/colosolic acid (Langerstroemia speciosa) In laboratory studies, colosolic acid was shown to stimulate glucose uptake. In a series of small studies, an extract standardized to 1% colosolic acid was found to help maintain normal blood glucose levels.
- Chromium - This is an essential mineral required for normal insulin function. Several studies have found that chromium supplements can support carbohydrate metabolism and blood glucose control. Chromium has been shown to lower oxidative stress.
- Magnesium - A study of a large group found that women consuming the highest amounts of magnesium had the greatest likelihood of maintaining normal blood sugar levels.
- Vanadium - This seems to be involved in the regulation of insulin function and the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.
- Zinc - A valuable mineral, zinc is believed to help insulin bind properly to insulin receptors on cell walls and plays an important role in insulin production and secretion. Zinc is also a component of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase, giving it a role in combating oxidative stress. Zinc and chromium each has a significant effect on oxidative stress, but the combination of the two minerals has been shown to be more effective than each alone.
- Taurine The amino acid taurine has been clinically investigated for a potential role in the control of blood sugar levels. Taurine helps stabilize cell membranes and appears to have free radical scavenging activity. Taurine has also been shown to support normal platelet function.
- Alpha lipoic acid Experimental studies suggest that alpha lipoic acid may also play a role in glucose transport, in addition to its role in antioxidant protection.
It is a unique and natural approach to regulating blood sugar levels by making your own system more efficient and effective at making use of blood glucose*
- Unique combination of natural ingredients to help maintain cell responsiveness to insulin*
- Supports efficient insulin function, thereby helping to maintain long-term cardiovascular health and retain normal blood sugar levels*
- Combines the best of nature and science
