There are several facets of blood sugar health: one is gluconeogenesis, or how the liver produces glucose from protein. Another is the conversion of starch (such as ingested grain) into glucose. Tri Sugar Shield® is a unique formula with three plant extracts that work together to promote healthy glucose metabolism: sorghum bran, white mulberry leaf, and phloridzin from apples.
Benefits at a Glance:
- Supports balanced sugar production in the liver1
- Encourages healthy insulin sensitivity2,3
- Helps inhibit sugar-digesting enzymes4-6
- Promotes healthy glucose elimination7,8
More facts about Tri Sugar Shield®
Maintaining healthy blood sugar is an absolutely integral part of lasting health. That's why we developed Tri Sugar Shield: each of the ingredients in Tri Sugar Shield helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within normal range. But they do it in different ways:
Sorghum bran extract
Compounds in sorghum bran extract help balance the rate of sugar production in the liver,6 as well as support healthy insulin sensitivity.7 Sorghum extract also helps modulate PPAR-gamma, a gene receptor that promotes healthy glucose metabolism.7,9,10 Lastly, sorghum helps inhibit the enzyme alpha-amylase, which releases sugars from starch during digestion.11,12,13
Mulberry leaf extract
Mulberry leaf extract targets the alpha-glucosidase enzyme, which turns ingested starch into glucose.14,15,16 It also supports transporter compound GLUT4, which moves glucose out of the bloodstream and into muscle and liver cells.17 Mulberry promotes insulin sensitivity as well.18
Phloridzin apple polyphenol
Phloridzin is a polyphenol compound extracted from apple root bark. It helps maintain already-healthy blood sugar levels by targeting carrier proteins SGLT1 and SGLT2. This both inhibits glucose absorption into the bloodstream,19 and encourages healthy glucose elimination.7,1
