The Gold Standard Supplement for Blood Sugar Health

For over 35 years, Dr. Whitaker has been a confident and passionate supporter of therapeutic solutions for blood sugar health. His customers have benefited from his commitment to educate the public and his innovative solutions for helping those with blood sugar health concerns. And, Dr. Whitaker continues to set standards in the supplement industry with a clinical study on his advanced blood sugar supplement, Berberine+ GlucoGold™. It is a rare achievement indeed to have a clinical study performed on a complete formula, and even more exciting to share the significant results with Dr. Whitaker’s new and long-time customers.

Clinical Study Shows Significant Support for Blood Sugar Health

In a double-blind, placebo controlled clinical study, Berberine+ GlucoGold was shown to provide significant support maintaining blood sugar levels already in the normal- to high-normal range. Plus, the clinical study showed the exclusive combination in Berberine+ GlucoGold to provide support for healthy total and LDL cholesterol levels.

Plus, it showed an improvement in DIO by 88%!

Although you may not have heard of this important marker used by researchers, DIO (oral Disposition Index) is a KEY measure to assess how well the beta cells in your pancreas respond to blood sugar. The jobs of these beta cells are to create insulin so your body can turn sugar into energy and store insulin so your body can respond quickly to dietary increases in blood sugar—both of which are critically important to maintain a proper blood sugar balance.

During the Berberine+ GlucoGold clinical study, it was shown that, compared to the placebo, the DIO marker improved by over 88%! This shows how well Berberine+GlucoGold supports the beta cells in your pancreas so they can properly respond to glucose in the bloodstream—which is incredible for pancreatic health.

Powerhouse Trio Delivers the Ultimate in Blood Sugar Support

The Berberine+ GlucoGold clinical study also confirmed the impressive individual research results of its three premier ingredients—berberine, Crominex® 3+, and cinnamon.

1,500 mg BERBERPURE™ BERBERINE—a tried-and-true ingredient to help maintain healthy blood sugar

Berberine—which can be extracted from a variety of exotic plants—was originally used in ancient Chinese medicine for digestion. Now, current research has discovered that concentrated berberine can help maintain healthy blood sugar by enhancing AMPK proteins to help the glucose in your blood enter your cells.

AMPK helps regulate glucose uptake and the synthesis of glucose transporters—which moves glucose into your cells, where it is converted to energy. Plus, it may also increase the number and activity of insulin receptors—further promoting insulin sensitivity.

Dr. Whitaker’s Berberine+ GlucoGold includes BerberPure, a high-quality, triple tested berberine that helps maintain blood glucose and cholesterol levels, as well as liver support, and metabolic health.

400 mcg CROMINEX 3+ CHROMIUM—clinically studied for improved bioavailability

Chromium, an essential trace element required for normal lipid and cholesterol metabolism, enhances the function of the insulin receptors on your cells, improving their sensitivity. This unique, clinically studied chromium combines optimized chromium with the addition of Capros® Amla extract and PrimaVie® purified Shilajit extract, for superior bioavailability and efficacy.

1,000 mg CINNAMON (Cinnamomum cassia)—supports normal insulin sensitivity

Cinnamomum cassia—harvested from a Southeast Asian evergreen tree—has long been used to help maintain blood glucose levels already in the normal range. Not only does cinnamon aide in the concentration of berberine in the blood, one study suggested that it may contribute to berberine bioavailability and also lengthen its retention time in the blood plasma.1 It also has other unique benefits—including supporting normal insulin sensitivity, which aides in the process of delivering glucose to your cells.

Dr. Whitaker’s #1 Berberine Supplement for Supporting Blood Sugar Health

Unavailable anywhere else, Dr. Whitaker’s exclusive berberine supplement is the ideal everyday solution for those serious about maintaining their blood sugar health. Not only does Berberine+ GlucoGold have an impressive clinical study on the whole formula showing significant results for maintaining blood sugar levels, each of the individual ingredients were included at their own researched dosages.

Berberine+ GlucoGold—A Clinically Studied Formula for Blood Sugar Health

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical study evaluated the effects of Berberine+ GlucoGold in the recommended dosage of one tablet three times daily or placebo in 112 individuals over 12 weeks. Research showed that Berberine+ GlucoGold helps maintain blood sugar levels already in the normal range and supports the normal response of insulin to blood sugar, normal insulin sensitivity, and healthy levels of total and LDL cholesterol. Plus, individuals showed an 88.6% improvement in DIO (oral Disposition Index—a measure of pancreatic beta-cell function).

Berberine Helps Maintain Blood Sugar Levels in the Normal Range

In one part of a two-part study, individuals were given three 500 mg doses of berberine daily (the same dose in Berberine+ GlucoGold) for three months. It showed that berberine helps maintain blood glucose levels already in the normal range and supports healthy lipid profiles.1 Plus, a second randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study (where individuals also took three 500 mg doses of berberine daily) confirmed that berberine helps maintain blood sugar levels already in the normal range.2

A third study further shows the effectiveness of berberine. In this three month, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, individuals were given 1,000 mg of berberine daily or a placebo. The individuals who took berberine noticed that it helped maintain blood glucose levels already in the normal range and supported healthy lipid profiles.3

Based on this fantastic research, Dr. Whitaker included BerberPure™ berberine in his advanced supplement for blood sugar support, Berberine+GlucoGold. Chosen for it's exceptional quality, BerberPure is sourced globally and manufactured and triple-tested in the USA.

Crominex 3+ Promotes Healthy Blood Glucose and Total Cholesterol Levels

In a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, individuals were divided into three groups and given either 400 mcg or 200 mcg of Crominex 3+ or a placebo. The 400 mcg dose of Crominex 3+—the same amount in Berberine+ GlucoGold—was shown to be more effective than 200 mcg or the placebo in promoting blood glucose levels already in the normal range. The research also suggests it supports healthy total and LDL cholesterol levels, while promoting a healthy inflammatory response and supporting healthy endothelial function (the health of the cells lining your blood vessels).4

What’s better, a second randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was done on Crominex 3+ with equally compelling results. In this 12-week study, 400 mcg and 200 mcg per day of Crominex 3+ was again tested against a placebo. And again, the 400 mcg dose was found to help maintain normal blood glucose levels, support healthy total and LDL cholesterol levels, promote a healthy inflammatory response, and healthy endothelial function.5

Cinnamon Supports Blood Sugar Health

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study examining the effects of 1g cinnamon daily (the equivalent dosage in Berberine+ GlucoGold), it was shown to help maintain blood glucose levels already in the normal range and support healthy lipid profiles.6
