Glycemic Guard™ is a once-a-day supplement that helps the body maintain already-healthy blood sugar levels.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- If you monitor your blood glucose levels, you should know all about

fasting blood sugar. That's the blood sugar count when you haven't been eating.

But what about after meals? Post-meal glucose spikes can be even more important. To help promote already healthy blood sugar levels, Life Extension developed Glycemic Guard.

Glycemic Guard is a once-a-day nutritional supplement that helps the body maintain already-healthy blood sugar levels, especially after meals. This new formula contains potent Delphinol® maqui berry extract and Clovinol® clove extract. Both affect glucose metabolism, or the way your body processes sugars from digested food.

Delphinol, packed with health-promoting anthocyanin and delphinidin compounds, delays the process by which food leaves the stomach and enters the small intestine. This affects post meal glucose and insulin spikes. In one study, 200 mg of Delphinol taken 30 minutes before eating profoundly affected post-prandial (after-eating) glucose and insulin levels. At 60 minutes after eating, the Delphinol-group measured a 15.14% difference in blood sugar levels and a 57% difference in insulin compared to the control group. In another study, 180 mg of Delphinol taken before breakfast led to a statistically significant change in hemoglobin A1c levels (a key indicator when it comes to blood sugar health) after just 60 days.

Clovinol is a water-soluble extract of unopened clove buds. Rich in polyphenols which promote healthy liver function, research shows that Clovinol inhibits a liver enzyme used in glycogenolysis, the natural process where the body breaks down glycogen to release glucose stored in the liver. One study showed that 250 mg of Clovinol once a day before eating resulted in 27% difference compared to baseline after 30 days, with noticeable change observable in as little as 12 days.

"Glucose tolerance and healthy insulin sensitivity decrease with normal age," says Michael A. Smith, M.D., senior health scientist for Life Extension in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "And since fasting blood sugar levels are the gold standard for measuring blood sugar health, after-dinner blood sugar concerns can go unnoticed for years, but now you can maintain your already healthy after-dinner blood sugar levels," adds Dr. Smith.

Suggested retail price for 30 vegetarian capsules of Glycemic Guard is $42. For special pricing call 800-540-4440 or visit
