Helps Maintain Blood Sugar Already in Health Range
Have tested various combos to take 5-20 minutes before each meal, and a couple months ago, BINGO! -- hit on a GREAT one for maintaining blood sugar already in the healthy range -- even with an occasional higher-carb/sweets meal:
ONE of these Swanson Mulberry Leaf caps + TWO Blueberry *LEAF* extract caps (60mg standardized to about 15% chlorogenic acid -- perhaps the most critical component of the whole combo) + ONE Niacin-Bound (polynicotinate) Chromium 200mcg (ChromeMate -- none other!) + ONE Quercetin of about 500mg.
Swanson makes all of these products, although to date I have not yet switched to their brand of Blueberry LEAF or Quercetin...but I likely will. Even though this Swanson whole-herb Mulberry Leaf is so wonderfully economical, I may try stepping up to Swanson's Mulberry Leaf Extract, as extracts tend to be purer (I never give ANY whole-herb product more than four leaves for quality) -- and interestingly, I see that Swanson's extract version of Mulberry is also standardized for the Quercetin that naturally occurs in Mulberry Leaf.
But getting back to this Swanson whole-herb Mulberry Leaf, by itself it wasn't as clearly helpful (even in larger quantity), but as part of my combo it seems *really* useful. And Mulberry Leaf by itself is hard to find -- leave it to Swanson to offer it, and both in economical whole-herb (this one) and extract versions!
