- Zinc and copper compete for the same absorption sites, and an excess of zinc can ultimately cause a copper deficiency
Cinnamon is included in this formula as it helps regulate blood sugar and supports the action of the other nutrients in this supplement
Extracts from the bark of the cinnamon tree have been used traditionally as medicine throughout the world
This supplement uses pure, real cinnamon with no detectable levels of coumarin
Cinnamon facilitates glucose use in humans, enhances insulin sensitivity and uptake into muscle cells
This is a natural plant-based mineral supplement containing pure brassica
- Plants in the brassica family are also known to contain other antioxidant phyto-nutrients which have been linked to improved immune function
This edible species of brassica is also ideal for producing supplements where higher levels of minerals are required than would normally be present in the foods we eat

- Chromium stimulates the activity of enzymes involved in the metabolism of glucose for energy and the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol
Chromium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels
When Chromium levels are low in the body, GTF levels are low too and the activity of insulin is blocked – blood glucose levels therefore remain elevated
Cytoplan Wholefood GTF chromium is better absorbed and longer retained than isolated chromium
Diets high in refined carbohydrates are usually low in zinc, so this mineral has been added to our Blood Sugar Support formulation
Zinc improves cell health, making up a component of the enzymes necessary for insulin to bind to cells so that glucose can enter and be utilised for energy
Zinc contributes to normal carbohydrate metabolism
Copper is combined with zinc to prevent a possible risk of copper deficiency during long-term usage
