Metagenics UltraGlycemX Original Flavor - 630 g
UltraGlycemX® is a medical food formulated to meet the specialized nutritional needs of patients with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, and hypoglycemia by providing a low-glycemic-index ingredient blend that includes high-amylose starch (a resistant starch), targeted plant nutrients, and heart-healthy soy protein. Featuring chlorogenic acid from green coffee bean extract, barley beta-glucans, cinnamon bark, and 11 grams of dietary fiber per serving, this formula provides enhanced nutritional support for glucose, lipid, and insulin metabolism. UltraGlycemX also supports healthy heart function by providing 15 grams of soy protein per serving. Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease.
- A pleasant-tasting beverage mix that provides protein, carbohydrates, and fat, with the inclusion of specific fibers, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients—including cinnamon—to nutritionally support insulin and glucose homeostasis.
- Provides nutritional support to individuals suspected of insulin resistance when combined with a low-glycemic-load dietary program.
- Provides a balanced, low-glycemic-index formula when mixed with water.
- Features cinnamon bark, which has been shown to promote healthy insulin and glucose metabolism in people with diabetes. In vitro and animal studies also suggest that cinnamon may modulate insulin action.
