Thompson’s Glucose Manager is suitable for all individuals suffering from or prone to symptoms of inadequate blood sugar control in the body. It can also be used as a daily supplement to assist in the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels, peripheral circulation and general health.
Glucose Manager is aimed at enhancing circulation and reducing the risk of development of associated health problems – poor vision, infections, slow wound healing, impotence and an increased risk of heart problems. Glucose Manager will also act to balance blood sugar levels, replenish nutrient deficiencies and speed weightloss.
The formula contains B vitamins to lift energy levels and assist in the development of healthy nerve cells that conduct messages throughout the body. Also included are minerals frequently deficient in our diets: Magnesium and Zinc, minerals lacking in New Zealand soils. Zinc has been shown to elevate blood sugar levels when deficient in the diet. Chromium helps to balance blood sugar levels and sugar cravings.
Each tablet of Glucose Manager contains 50 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid, a powerful antioxidant that assists to mop up free radicals before they cause serious damage in the body. The most central herb to the Glucose Manager formulation is Gymnema, a herb that will reduce appetite, sugar cravings, and balance blood sugar levels. The formula contains 250mg of standardised extract of Gymnema, (the equivalent of 2500 mg of dried herb) per tablet.
Another important addition is Goat’s Rue, used since medieval times for blood sugar problems and assistance with weightloss. Herbs to help improve poor circulation, and thereby assist with problems such as impotence, impaired vision, infections, slow wound healing and heart problems, are Ginkgo and Bilberry. Garlic contributes to the prevention of heart problems by lowering blood pressure, cholesterol levels and preventing the formation of blood clots.
Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.
Not recommended for use in pregnant or lactating women unless advised by your healthcare professional.

Use of supplements containing gymnema may increase the blood sugar-lowering effect of hypoglycaemic agents and insulin. Blood glucose levels should be carefully monitored.
Concomitant use of garlic- or ginkgo-containing supplements and warfarin or other medications which affect blood clotting (including aspirin) may lead to an increased risk of bleeding.
