It is estimated that high blood sugar levels indirectly lead to more than three million deaths worldwide each year, according to researchers who looked at levels
linked to heart disease and stroke.
Blood sugar is the amount of glucose in the blood. High blood glucose levels are very toxic and it also can hinder insulin absorption so cells that don’t get
glucose lack the fuel they need. These two problems cause the symptoms of diabetes.
The Harvard School of Public Health in Boston concluded blood sugar levels are responsible for one over million diabetes deaths, as well as almost 1.5 million
deaths from heart disease and 700,000 deaths from stroke worldwide each year.
Researchers believe that since the risk of death rises with blood sugar levels well below the benchmark used to define diabetes, deaths linked to diabetes are
GlucoSense contains natural ingredients to help support healthy glucose metabolism:
Alpha-Lipoic Acid has been shown to improve blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and stimulate
the regeneration of nerve fibres. Alpha-Lipoic Acid is used to help treat symptoms of nerve damage in people suffering from Type I and Type II diabetes.
Berberine has been shown to effectively lower glucose levels both while fasting and after a meal in type 2 diabetics.
Berberine has also been shown to be as effective as drugs like metformin for lowering elevated blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetics (Yin et al, 2008).
Bitter Melon: Bitter Melon has been shown to contain an insulin-like substance that promotes improved blood sugar
Chromium: Chromium helps maintain healthy glucose levels for people with blood sugar concerns. It helps insulin regulate
blood sugar and it enhances insulin absorption.
Bilberry Extract: Bilberry Extract contains a substance called glucoquinine, which has the ability to significantly lower
blood sugar levels.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon has long been used traditionally for the regulation of blood glucose levels. A study by Lu et al (2011)
found that supplementation with Chinese cinnamon extract (Cinnamomum aromaticum) significantly improved glucose control and blood lipid parameters in 66 type 2
diabetes patients. The extract was effective even at a low daily dose.
Biotin: Biotin is an essential nutrient that plays an important role in glucose metabolism in the body, and deficiencies in
biotin have been associated with impaired glucose metabolism. Studies have shown that taking a combination of biotin and chromium picolinate can be highly effective
for helping to regulate glucose metabolism. For example, one study of 447 overweight patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes has shown that taking a
biotin/chromium combination as an adjuvant to regular prescription anti-diabetic medication, improved glycemic control in overweight to obese individuals with type 2
diabetes; especially those patients with poor glycemic control on oral therapy (Albarracin et al, 2008).
You only mention Type 2 Diabetes in your information. Can I take this product if I have Type 1 Diabetes?Absolutely, yes, follow the
Are there any cautions I should be aware of when taking GlucoSense and other medications?
All of the ingredients in GlucoSense will affect blood sugars, so a consumer on any type of diabetic medication must closely monitor their blood sugar as they may
have to make adjustments. GlucoSense will help to decrease blood sugars further so this is extremely important. Holy Basil, Fenugreek and Bilberry are all
cautioned with anti-coagulant medication and are not recommended to be used together.
Is GlucoSense gluten free?
Yes, we do have confirmation on file that there is no gluten added and no gluten present in GlucoSense. However, our manufacturing facility is NOT a gluten
free facility, and as we do process products that contain gluten we are unable to confirm 100% that there is no possibility of cross contamination.
Do all of your products have an NPN?
Yes, all of our products have been issued a Natural Product Number (NPN) by Health Canada – these numbers do appear on our labels. Further Natural
Health Product criteria and information can be found on the Health Canada website www.hc-sc.gc.ca Under the Food and Drugs Act items that
are considered a food – for example, our protein powders and herbal teas – do not require an NPN. Are your capsules GMO
Yes, our vegetarian capsule shells, our gelatin capsule shells and our softgel shells are all non-GMO.Are your products GMO free?
Preferred Nutrition is currently in the process of testing all of our products so that we can advise the public if any of them contain ingredients that come from
genetically modified organisms or not. Once the testing is complete we will indicate on our website, as well as on our product information sheets and on our
labels. This will be done as quickly as possible and on a product-by-product basis.Why have your cautions and your recommended/suggested
usages changed so dramatically on many of your labels?
The changes you are noticing to our suggested usage and cautionary statements have been at the directive of Health Canada. There have been many regulatory
changes with regards to Natural Health Products causing companies to change their labels accordingly. We update our website, product information sheets and
labels on the actual products to reflect these regulations as quickly as we possibly can. Health Canada and the industry representing natural health products act
according to the interest of consumers and their safety. As a result, if there is any concern with an existing condition, a caution is added to advise the
consumer to seek out feedback from their Health Care professional. Will this product help me lose weight?
There is no such thing as a "magic" pill or product - the only way to succeed (and maintain) true weight loss is by adopting a healthy lifestyle combining adequate
exercise and proper nutrition. If you are concerned about poor eating habits or cravings, then we recommend you seek advice from a Nutritionist or Naturopath to obtain
some guidance on healthy eating, as well as to investigate possible underlying (or undiagnosed) hormonal imbalances, which can make it harder to lose weight. You
might also want to consider speaking with a personal trainer to help you discover a fun fitness program that you enjoy - because, no matter what, in order to achieve
and maintain any type of weight loss, exercise is required. Our vitamins and supplements are designed to help you in your quest to a daily, healthy lifestyle,
however it also requires effort on your part.Where do you source your products from?
All of our products are manufactured at a GMP facility certified by Health Canada. All raw materials come in and are tested for purity, safety and
potency. If they do not meet our standards they are rejected and sent back or destroyed. We use the highest quality ingredients available. Many of
our products contain proprietary patented ingredients that have been clinically researched. We also use organic whenever we can.Are your
products peanut free?
Following compliance with food regulations, in order to make a negative claim such as "peanut free", it would be necessary to insure a zero tolerance of any peanut
traces, including the possibility of cross contamination. Although our manufacturing facility has a policy in place for allergen control, there is no specific
policy for peanuts, nor is there a specific "no peanut agreement" with our raw material suppliers.Can your products be used after the expiry date
Supplements generally keep their potency long after the expiry date. There is certainly no safety issues with consuming after the expiry date has passed
however the potency degrades over longer periods of time.If a product does not specify "vegetarian capsule", then what is it made from?
These capsules are gelatin capsules sourced from either pork or beef.Are any of your products "vegan-friendly"?
Yes, AdrenaSense, EstroSense, MenoSense, BioSil, Medi-C Plus, Magnesium and MagSense (from our WomenSense and Preferred Nutrition product lines), the Healing Teas,
our Ultimate Maca Energy products and the Ultimate VEGAN line are all vegan friendly.
Why can't I find any prices on your website?
Preferred Nutrition is the wholesale distribution company for the products on this website. However we sell exclusively to Health Food stores & selected Natural
Pharmacies across Canada, not directly to the general public. Because the prices of our products can vary from store-to-store, we are unable to list our
suggested prices on our website. We recommend you contact your local retailer and inquire about prices directly with them. Can I
purchase products directly from you? I went to a health food store and the prices seem very expensive.
We distribute our products in Canada only and we sell directly to Health Food stores - since they have a personal commitment to the natural health lifestyle.
Consumers are then able to buy our products from knowledgeable staff that are genuinely interested in helping people be well - people who care! Always be sure to
look for in store promotions or coupons when you are making your purchases as this can help alleviate your cost concerns.Do all health food stores
carry all of your products?
To find Health Food stores in your area that carry our products, please click on "Store Locator" at the top of this screen. All you have to do is enter your
postal code and you will be given a list of retailers in the radius that you choose. We do recommend calling ahead to see if they stock the item you are looking for
and in most cases if a store does not normally carry something, they will offer to do a special order for you.Are any of your products tested on
No, there is no animal testing on any of our products.Should your supplements be taken with or without food?
Most of our products will specify directly on the bottle whether they should be taken with a meal or not. If nothing is stated, then the choice is yours as to
when the best time is for you to take them. In general, however, most vitamin supplements should be taken with food because once eating starts the digestive
process, enzymes and gastric juices are generated and usually the nutrients will be absorbed and assimilated better.I like the sound of many of
your products. Am I able to take different formulas at the same time?
Yes, it's safe to combine various WomenSense products to help support the body in achieving optimal health. The same applies to the Preferred Nutrition line,
Dr. Whitaker's formulas and Brad King's. If you are unsure of any combination, then please consult your Health Care Practitioner.I have heard
that drinking green tea along with my supplements will end up flushing out all the nutrients? Is this true?
No, you are fine taking your supplements with green tea. Coffee inhibits the absorption of nutrients, but the caffeine in green tea will not pose the same
problem.Can you tell me if I can combine any of your supplements with the medication(s) I am on, as prescribed by my doctor?
It is best to consult your Doctor or alternative Health Practitioner before taking any new supplements while on prescribed medication. If you have been
approved to add our supplement(s) to your daily regime, then we do recommend that you space the medication and the supplements out by at least one hour.Can I take your products when I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
We are not able to make any recommendations with any of our products when it comes to pregnancy or while nursing. You must contact your Health Practitioner,
Naturopath or Pharmacist.I understand that you put a recommended dosage on your labels, but I can take more or less than that, right? And,
really, do I have to take the product every day?
With regards to the recommended dosage, we would suggest you speak to your Doctor or Health Care Practitioner before increasing any amounts. As with any
supplement you can determine your amount based on your personal preference - if you find that a product works for you immediately then you should be fine to take it
just on the days you feel you need it, but again we suggest you discuss this with you MD or HP. Some consumers find that a product needs to be in their system
for a few days to a few weeks before they notice results and/or feel the full benefits. I don't understand why when I purchase your product
and open the bottle, the contents don't even fill 1/2 of the packaging that is being used?
The containers we use are determined based on product fill and required label information, as well as capsule count when/where applicable. Sometimes we do
have to use a larger bottle than seems necessary because of the information required on the labels - requirements both from Health Canada and in order for the label to
be clear and legible to our consumers. Also, in a case where we are offering larger volume (ie/ 400g versus 200g or 180 capsules versus 90 capsules), then we
have to put the contents in a bigger container in order for there to be differentiation on the shelf.I bought a bottle of your product, and
although it seemed to feel lighter than usual, I didn't think much of it, until I opened the bottle and discovered that there is nowhere near the amount of capsules
inside as there should have been. How can this happen?
As part of our corporate policy and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirement, our procedures incorporate routine in-process checks plus a final examination of
the finished product to ensure conformance to all aspects of quality, including correct product count. There are a number of checks and balances performed by
both Production and Quality Assurance personnel prior to, during, and after the packaging operations to ensure that product under-counts do not happen. Although
product under-counts can happen, this occurrence is rare. Should you discover that your bottle is far below the label claim count upon opening - we recommend you
return it to your point of purchase as per our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.What is your 100% money-back (customer satisfaction)
Our 100% money-back/customer satisfaction guarantee ensures that if a customer is not completely satisfied with their purchase, they can return the unused portion
of the product (in its original packaging) back to their point of purchase and we will credit the Health Food store 100% of their purchase price from us. We
cannot dictate if a store will give cash back or an in-store credit, nor can we override store policies already in place ~ but we do promise to credit them, regardless
of the reason for the return.
