Glucofit™ is an oily extract form of corosolic acid derived from the leaves of the plant lagestroemia speciosa, grown in Asia. Corosolic acid is a powerful transporter of glucose across cell membranes. The concentration of corosolic acid in Glucofit™ is far more superior from its predecessor, Glucotrim.
In human studies, Glucofit™ reduced blood sugar levels in non-insulin dependent (Type II) diabetics. In animal studies, it lowered blood glucose in both diabetic and healthy animals. In fact, studies show that Glucofit™ is the most effective nutritional supplement for controlling blood sugar.
Controlling blood sugar is essential. Glucose that is not transported into cells stagnates in the blood and is often converted into fat. Elevated blood sugar levels not only lead to weight gain but also to glycation, a specific type of damage caused by a reaction between glucose and protein, as well as to other common diseases such as atherosclerosis.
Recently-published preliminary results of a comparative clinical study show that patients supplemented with the new Glucofit™ for 60 days lost over 4.5 kg, including 70% body fat mass, while those supplemented with the original Glucosollost only' 3 kg. These results would seem to confirm the dose-dependent efficacy of corosolic acid in weight control.

Some explanation is needed then to clarify exactly what is meant by cholesterol, hypercholesterolaemia, ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol and a cholesterol-lowering diet.
Which are the best supplements for lowering blood sugar levels (glycaemia) in pre-diabetic or diabetic individuals?
You may not be aware of berberine supplements, but this natural active principle has actually been used therapeutically for many years, especially in traditional Asian medicine. Today, scientists are showing particular interest in berberine’s properties in relation to the management of type 2 diabetes...
