- Life Extension Tri Sugar Shield provides three plant-derived nutrients (sorghum bran extract, white mulberry leaf extract, and phloridzin) that work together to provide optimal support for healthy glucose metabolism.
- Sorghum has long been cultivated in Asia (and now is grown in Africa, India, China, Australia, and the USA) and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, among those in the normal range, by modulating four different mechanisms: Balances the rate of sugar manufacture in the liver (gluconeogenesis). Promotes insulin sensitivity. Regulates PPAR-gamma, a metabolic thermostat supporting glucose metabolism. Regulates the enzyme alpha-amylase, which in turn maintains the release of sugar found in starch.
- Mulberry leaf has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for centuries. Mulberry leaf extract targets three different mechanisms: Targets the alpha-glucosidase enzyme to regulate conversion of starch into glucose. Supports glucose transporter GLUT4 that moves glucose out of the bloodstream and into muscle and liver cells. Promotes insulin sensitivity.
- Phloridzin is a natural polyphenol found predominantly in apples. Phloridzin helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, among those in the normal range by: Targeting carrier protein SGLT1, in turn helping to block the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream. Targeting carrier protein SGLT2, in turn supporting glucose elimination via urine.
- By targeting all of these diverse glucose pathways, Tri Sugar Shield delivers broad-spectrum support to help naturally stabilize already healthy glucose levels.
