Ultra Glucose Control
Ultra Glucose Control
Blood glucose levels play an important role in overall health by providing energy to get through the day. However, with more people than ever following the standard Western diet of foods rich in sugars, fats, and refined carbohydrates, there has been an increase in health problems attributed to imbalanced glucose levels.
How common are problems with glucose management?
More than 11 million Canadians are challenged by glucose metabolism -related health concerns.1
Adopting healthy lifestyle habits such as a good diet, exercise routine, and weight management program, as well as adding a natural health product such as Ultra Glucose Control to provide additional support, may help with the management of glucose response.
Recent clinical evidence from a 16-week randomised control trial conducted by the Joslin Diabetes Center has shown that a diet and nutritional support intervention approach to glucose management --including UCAN SuperStarch™ as a leading part of the formula--improves patients' glucose metabolism along with other significant findings.2
UCAN SuperStarch™ is produced through a hydrothermal process that yields a large molecule that is structurally different and larger than a complex carbohydrate, and is more capable of sustained release of glucose. Ultra Glucose Control contains 15 grams of UCAN SuperStarch™ per serving in combination with a high quality prebiotic IMO fiber.
Ultra Glucose Control is a natural health product designed for individuals who may need additional support for healthy glucose metabolism. Benefits include:
- • A blend of slow-release waxy maize (UCAN SuperStarch™) and fiber designed to be digested slowly
- • Ratio-balanced combination of slow-release carbohydrates, protein, and fat (40-30-30), consistent with recommendations from clinical centres3,4
- • 12 grams of a pea/rice protein blend enhanced with added branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine)
- • 19 essential vitamins and minerals—including vitamin D3, chromium, biotin, and magnesium—to support overall health
