Diet, weight, and exercise are essential for healthy blood glucose levels. However, because it is difficult for most people to maintain ideal diet and exercise programs, a natural aid can help.*
Blood glucose-lowering (oral hypoglycemic) medications are often prescribed. Benefits are often marginal, and a host of side effects are noted in the 2001 Physicians Desk Reference (PDR), including gastrointestinal problems, impairment of B-12 absorption, metabolic/lactic acidosis, and renal problems. Additionally, these drugs often lose effectiveness over time and can exacerbate the sexual dysfunction commonly seen in diabetics. PERQUE Glucose Control Guard offers a better choice that avoids these adverse effects, while improving patient satisfaction and compliance.*
UNIQUE PERQUE FORMULA, NATURALLY
PERQUE Glucose Control Guard is another unique, comprehensive formula providing synergistic nutrients for better blood sugar and energy regulation. Glucose Control Guard is a unique herbal nutrient combination.*
Standardized corosolic acid (derived from Banaba leaf extract at 3% HPLC) is an herbal extract proven to improve insulin action and is a potent antioxidant. Among its benefits are:
1. Activates glucose transport,
2. Increases cellular glucose uptake,
3. Enhances energy production naturally, and
4. Safely and naturally lowers blood glucose levels.*
Chromium citrate and vanadium ascorbate are supplied in their most potent forms. Chromium is needed for blood sugar metabolism, improving glucose tolerance, and helps to lower body weight while increasing lean body mass. Vanadium enhances sugar metabolism and reduces the need for insulin in both Type I and Type II diabetics.*
Agnus castus (Chaste Tree berry) in PERQUE Glucose Control Guard at 250 mg. of high activity material improves HPA axis function, enhancing the often overlooked but important hormonal influence on blood glucose. Hormonal dysregulation and distress increases risk from and complications of Syndrome X/insulin resistance. Diabetes becomes more brittle and difficult to control when hormonal dysregulation exists.*
Two weeks after the end of supplementation, subjects continued to lose weight! Both Type II diabetics and 'normal' subjects experienced an average weight loss of up to three pounds per month.* Safer benefit in maintaining healthy blood glucose levels was demonstrated in non-diabetic subjects on their usual diet on the active corosolic acid for 30 days. No chronic hypoglycemic effects occurred, and blood sugar levels were kept within the usual range.*
ONE SOFTGEL CAPSULE PROVIDES:
Best if taken before meal(s). Available in bottles of 60 softgel capsules.
A recent clinical study in Texas (William V. Judy, Ph.D., personal communication, 1998) on both Type II diabetics and normal subjects showed the glucose regulator in PERQUE Glucose Control Guard reduced average blood glucose levels by a stunning 32% when taken at 48 mg./day for just three months. Now, with chromium, vanadium, and agnus castus, even better clinical results can be expected.*
WHO NEEDS IT NOW?
Ensuring blood glucose balance is critical for anyone seeking to restore or maintain good health, and is particularly indicated for the following conditions:*
Syndrome X/Insulin resistance management: The group of symptoms including high blood pressure and increased cardiovascular risk, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and obesity are referred to as Syndrome X or insulin-resistant syndromes. Underlying this metabolic disturbance are persistent elevations in blood glucose and insulin levels that have been shown to precede Type II diabetes.*
Type I Diabetes (IDDM): Balanced blood sugar with PERQUE Glucose Control Guard may help insulin dependent diabetics reduce their need for insulin.*
Type II Diabetes (NIDDM): Risk increases with age, weight, and decreased physical activity. Using PERQUE Glucose Control Guard as a primary supplement to maintain blood sugar balance, along with dietary control and regular exercise,may reduce or eliminate the need for insulin and help prevent the kidney, eye, and heart damage associated with poor glucose control.*
Weight Management/Obesity: Because excess blood glucose from impaired carbohydrate metabolism signals fat cells to store lipids, resulting in weight gain, PERQUE Glucose Control Guard can modify carbohydrate metabolism, both promoting weight loss and preventing weight gain (or regain).* PERQUE Glucose Control Guard is your best tool to balance blood sugar for everyone needing improved glucose/energy regulation.*
