*Healthy support for levels already within the normal range.
4-in-1 formula delivers premier, doctor-recommended ingredients
Even though it was originally used in ancient Chinese tradition, current research has discovered that concentrated berberine has an amazing ability to impact blood sugar levels. Berberine facilitates the entry of glucose from your blood into your cells by enhancing the function of your AMPK proteins. AMPK helps regulate glucose uptake and the synthesis of glucose transporters—which move glucose out of your blood and into your cells, where it is converted to energy.
The research behind the success:
In one part of a two-part study, participants were given 1,500 mg of berberine split over 3 doses daily (the same dose in GlucoGold). After 3 months, the study determined that berberine helps maintain blood glucose levels already in the normal range and supports healthy lipid profiles.1
GlucoGold includes BerberPure, a high-quality, triple-tested berberine that helps maintain blood glucose and cholesterol levels, as well as providing liver support, and supporting metabolic health.
400 mcg CROMINEX 3 + CHROMIUM—Chromium, an essential trace element required for normal fat and carbohydrate metabolism, may enhance the function of the insulin receptors on your cells, impacting their sensitivity. This unique, clinically validated chromium blend includes optimized chromium with the addition of Capros® Amla extract and PrimaVie® purified Shilajit extract, for superior bioavailability. What's more, the latest research shows improved results with a 400 mcg dose of Crominex 3+ versus 200 mcg daily.2
200 mg CONCENTRATED CINNAMON (Cinnamomum cassia)—Renowned for its use as an ancient remedy and its antioxidant benefits, cinnamon has traditionally been used to support digestive health and cardiovascular health, as well as other areas in traditional Chinese herbal traditions. Cinnamon has also been traditionally used to support glycemic control and blood sugar metabolism. The cinnamon in this formula comes in a concentrated 10:1 extract that means you need less to get the same traditional support—and allowed us to fit in this superstar ingredient without adding more pills.
48 mg BANABA EXTRACT—The banaba is a tropical plant found in many Asian countries. It has been traditionally used to support healthy blood sugar levels. Modern day clinical research now indicates that banaba provides support to help maintain healthy blood glucose levels.
Also featuring clear-coat tablets
This formula is cleaner than ever, so GlucoGold with easy-swallow clear-coat tablets that are free of unnecessary colorants, lets the natural color of the ingredients shine through.

Science And Quality
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 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, we included BerberPure™ berberine in this advanced supplement for blood sugar support, GlucoGold. Chosen for its 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 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
