Glucophenol® is a concentrated combination of strawberry and cranberry extracts selected for their high polyphenol content. The extracts were studied in partnership with Atrium Innovations and Laval University to show that polyphenols from Orleans strawberry and cranberry support insulin sensitivity in men and women. Fruit concentrated extracts also provide antioxidant support; for example, cranberry juice was shown to lower lipid oxidation and increase plasma antioxidant capacity in women.
Capros®, the Indian gooseberry also known as Amla, is a rich source of ellagitannins and has a wide range of polyphenolic bioactive compounds, including flavonoids, kaempferol, ellagic acid and gallic acid. As an extract, amla standardized to 60% tannins has been shown to support healthy biomarkers of stress, including CRP, and support normal blood lipid, glucose, and cardiovascular health at a dose of 500 mg daily.
Chromium has been used to help balance blood glucose levels. Studies show that Zychrome®, a mineral chelate that combines chromium with niacin and L-cysteine, is more effective at supporting healthy insulin levels.Chelated minerals are bound to amino acids to help increase their absorption by the body.
