Hi Cary B,
I tried Glucobetic once upon a time and it didn't really do anything for me! Its major component is Chromium which if taken in doses that are effective enough to move your blood sugar can be potentially dangerous. I find what Flourish wellness charges for a bottle of that stuff to be criminal vs taking any of the effective ingrediants separately from the health food store. Read down through the forum as there is a post on foods that can lower your blood sugar and have been proven to do so. Your much better off going this route than making Flourish wellness richer!
It is relatively easy to get safe and adequate amounts of chromium (50-200 micrograms per day) by eating a variety of foods like brewer's yeast, calf's liver, American cheese and wheat germ.
People who take chromium picolinate supplements may suffer health problems rather than improved health. Although claims of weight loss, lowered cholesterol and reversal of diabetes are unfounded, researchers have shown that chromium supplements damaged cell chromosomes which are the blueprints for a cell's function and reproduction. It is generally thought that cancer starts with a change to the genetic material in a cell causing it to grow and reproduce without restraint. 500mcg of chromium per day is bordering on dangerous and I wouldn't use this product.
