Reducing Carbohydrate Impact


Managing blood sugar levels is one key to maintaining optimum health and weight, especially for those at risk of diabetes or pre-diabetes. Hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar is a condition in which an excessive amount of glucose circulates in the blood plasma. One of the main aims of a Diabetes Diet, is to manage blood glucose levels and avoid Hyperglycemia. SUGARDOWN® is a useful tool in diabetes management and an aid in medical nutrition therapy (MNT).

Scientists at Boston Therapeutics developed SUGARDOWN® to address the growing need for blood glucose management and lowering blood glucose levels. Taken with food, it promotes healthy blood sugar levels by reducing blood sugar spikes and lowering foods ability to elevate blood glucose levels.

SUGARDOWN® Helps You Maintain a Low Carb Diet

low carbohydrate dietSUGARDOWN® is taken with food to lower blood glucose levels. It is available as a natural, convenient and chewable dietary supplement that is taken before carbohydrate-containing meals to reduce the absorption of glucose from the intestinal tract. SUGARDOWN® binds to carbohydrates and digestive enzymes preventing the breakdown of complex carbohydrates in foods to glucose. It temporarily coats the digestive tract to slow the absorption of glucose. In addition, SUGARDOWN® induces a feeling of fullness and can therefore support portion control. All of these non-systemic mechanisms combined lead to lowering the rate of glucose absorption from the intestinal tract into the blood.

Natural and Safe

SUGARDOWN® is safe too and helps lower blood glucose levels naturally! It’s natural ingredients work in a “Non-Systemic” way, which means that it does not effect your body’s systems to get results. Because it targets the food you eat (by blocking the effects of carbs) and not your body, it is safer than other Carbohydrate Blocking alternatives. SUGARDOWN® has no side-effects and no known drug interaction.

SUGARDOWN® is manufactured in the U.S.A. at a GMP-certified facility. SUGARDOWN® is registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and structure and function claims for SUGARDOWN® have been submitted to the FDA. Those concerned about carbohydrate intake and high blood sugar may find SUGARDOWN® an effective dietary supplement.
