I haven't heard of it, but I can tell you this. For decades, there is always the latest "thing" to lower your blood sugar. Basically, there is no one "thing". It is a combination of diet, exercise, moderation, and in some cases medications. Often what happens is that the latest "thing" is given press, manufacturers make a bunch of it, and charge huge prices. Our pocket books end up a lot thinner.
Debs & Cora, I completely agree. Look at the reports from Consumer companies on the purity of all of these things and you'll find most are loaded with things you don't want to ingest. Then you look at the side effects. . . jeesssss its like stepping out of the frying pan into the fire!
I continue on my need for chemical free, natural products, fresh local veggies in summer, frozen when needed, and in the winter the imported as clean as possible. Two salads most days, low starch levels, and I seem to be beating anything that come my way. Dr. report last week was great, and he says see you in six months.
