GlucoGen was designed to support patients who suffer from chronic blood sugar instability. Many patients describe symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, and unpredictable glucose control, which all blend together to create the perfect storm for those dealing with autoimmune conditions, and a wide variety of inflammatory problems.
GlucoGen contains a 990mg Carnitine blend that is employed to support healthy levels of insulin sensitivity while promoting proper blood sugar balance. The condition known as hypoglycemia, widely thought to be subjective, is often related to cellular levels of glucose uptake being functionally sluggish or, stated another way, normo-glycemic insulin resistance.
Carnitine in its various forms can also promote proper function by enhancing fatty acid uptake into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation (“fat burning” or turning fatty acids into ATP.) This is a critical step in stimulating gluconeogenesis, the process by which the liver makes new glucose to keep serum glucose levels stable during times of fasting.
GlucoGen utilizes Licorice Root Extract which has been shown to support patients with adrenal stress mechanisms, thereby supporting proper blood glucose control and blood pressure regulatory mechanisms.
Nicotinamide Riboside promotes an increase in NAD+. Studies have demonstrated that increased levels of NAD+play a role in preventing age-related health decline, improving blood sugar and cholesterol, and reducing nerve damage due to chronic disease.
- Enhance cellular uptake of glucose
- Promote proper insulin sensitivity
- Support healthy metabolism
