Clinically studied PGX and Berberine can make the difference.
Losing weight and managing blood sugar are challenging for many consumers. There are many issues that affect weight and each person must examine their lifestyle to best understand the lifestyle choices that affect them uniquely. To have success one must attend to those; diet, exercise, mindfulness and committing to good choices are prerequisites to success. Nutritional supplements are adjuncts to a weight and blood sugar management regimen. In this interview Dr. Kate Rhéaume describes two nutrients, PGX (polyglycoplex)and Berberine and how they are used to support weight and blood sugar management.*
PGX is a unique fiber that has amazing benefits for weight loss and blood sugar support.* Another benefit of PGX is supporting healthy cholesterol levels.* If you are challenged by these issues, you should consider PGX. I have two previous interviews on PGX with Dr. Michael Murray and Dr. Michael Lyon. Listen to these three interviews and you will have an excellent overview and understanding about PGX and how to use it effectively.
The second nutrient discussed by Dr. Rhéaume is berberine. Berberine is a naturally occurring plant alkaloid found in various plants, including barberry, goldenseal, and Oregon grape. Many herbalists credit this unique alkaloid for the beneficial effects of many traditional tonics made from these plants. Berberine plays an important role in blood sugar (glucose) metabolism and cardiovascular health.* Berberine helps maintain healthy blood sugar and total cholesterol levels already within the normal range.*
Natural Factors Berberine is a great example of the challenges consumers face in finding quality natural products. Natural products are regulated by FDA, however FDA has done a very poor job of identifying and removing illegal nutritional products. It is truly a buyer beware marketplace. You have to find the good companies and good products. Natural Factors Berberine was the only product sold exclusively in the natural products channel that met label claims.
