- Maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels throughout the day†
- Healthy insulin function
- Healthy A1C levels†
- Carbohydrate metabolism*
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is "copalchi"?
There are a variety of tree-like botanicals found in Mexico and Central America known as "copalchis." Traditionally, the dried bark of these plants has been used to support healthy blood sugar balance, and in fact, it is commonly found in marketplaces in Mexico. It grows mostly in the desert and withstands an intense climate. Toughing out monsoon-like rainy seasons and scorching dry spells has created a powerful defense mechanism within the plant itself. Much in the way that anthocyanins, protective compounds in berries, can be even greater after some stresses to the plant, the beneficial compounds of Hintonia are made all the stronger for its ability to survive and thrive in a difficult environment.
What are "A1C levels"?
A1C tests, also known as "HbA1c" tests, show average blood sugar levels over time. The levels indicate what percentage of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen in red blood cells, is "glycated" or "coated" with sugar.
How were the levels of the vitamins/minerals in this formula determined?
Sucontral® D was developed in Europe with the major focus on how best to deliver the unique polyphenols from the herb copalchi (Hintonia latiflora) as the key ingredient for supporting blood sugar health. The great majority of benefits from this product are related to the activity of the copalchi. However, the developers decided to include small amounts of other nutrients as a baseline of vitamin and mineral support. The clinical studies on this specific formula included the vitamin and mineral component, and so Terry Naturally has kept the formula exactly as it was used in human the studies showing beneficial results.
