Other Sources For Purslane For Type 2 Diabetes

I have been doing a little more research on the herb called "Purslane" and have found a fair amount of evidence that it is indeed a good addition to any Type 2 diabetics diet regimen. Here are some other sources of supplements containing Purslane.

"Glucose Essentials" from Dr, Whitaker is another formula that has just added Portusana Purslane Extract to his existing formula to make it better. Here is a link to his product:


Get ready to impress your doctor with even better glucose numbers!

Glucose Essentials and Blood Sugar Concerns
Glucose Essentials is now even better! A brand new Swiss discovery called Portusana™ Purslane Extract takes my acclaimed formula to a whole new level. It not only promotes normal blood sugar levels and better insulin sensitivity—but helps lower the critical hemoglobin A1C blood sugar marker! But this is more than numbers on a blood test—these are benefits you’re going to feel! By helping to even out the blood sugar spikes and drops, Portusana helps to give you a slow, steady supply of energy.

Glucose Essentials gives you:
  • Portusana™ to support normal blood sugar—and help lower hemoglobin A1C! I just added a brand new Swiss discovery called Portusana Purslane Extract to Glucose Essentials. It not only supports normal blood sugar levels, but is clinically shown to help lower the critical A1C blood sugar marker. Plus, it helps to even out blood sugar spikes and drops, giving you a slow steady supply of energy!
  • Vanadyl sulfate mimics insulin—helping to keep blood sugar steady. Vanadyl sulfate has been one of my top-recommended nutrients for blood sugar support for more than 30 years. The reason is it has an insulin-like effect in your body, helping to transport glucose into your cells—benefiting both your blood sugar and A1C levels.
  • Silbinol to move sugar out of your bloodstream and into your cells. Silbinol™, a specialized extract of P. marsupium from the Indian Kino tree, helps to move glucose out of your bloodstream and into your cells more rapidly. In an open-label trial participants experienced an average fasting blood sugar drop of more than 32 points—and in another study an average drop of almost 56 points.
  • Chromium helps to overcome insulin resistance—naturally. Chromium, an essential trace mineral, facilitates the action of insulin, glucose, protein, and fat metabolism. It enhances the body’s sensitivity to insulin for sugar and fat metabolism, and it facilitates insulin’s uptake of glucose into the cells.
  • Glucohelp™ helps to activate transporters on your cells—so they let glucose in. Glucohelp™, a specialized extract of banaba leaf, is standardized to 18% corosolic acid—the ingredient that helps to activate the glucose transporters on the surface of your cells, so they let glucose in. Research also suggests it improves your body’s ability to produce and utilize insulin.
  • GS4 Gymnema helps slow the release of sugar into your bloodstream. Research shows 400 mg of GS4 Gymnema—the form and dose you get in Glucose Essentialshelps with blood sugar control by slowing the release of sugar from your digestive tract into your bloodstream.
All together, Glucose Essentials:
  • Promotes normal blood glucose levels
  • Supports normal hemoglobin A1C levels
  • Improves glucose tolerance
  • Enhances glucose transport in your body
  • Increases insulin sensitivity
  • Keeps blood sugar levels in the normal range
  • Fights free-radical damage
From your blood sugar to your A1C levels, your doctor is going to want to know your secret!
