Ultra Glucose Control® is formulated for the nutritional management of glucose response. It is designed for individuals who may need additional support in controlling their blood sugar levels. Ultra Glucose Control delivers a ratio-balanced combination of carbohydrates, protein, and fat (40-30-30) to manage glucose response, consistent with recommendations from clinical centers.1,2 Formulated with MetaRelease™—a proprietary blend of slow-release, complex carbohydrates (UCAN SuperStarch™) and fiber—and high-quality proteins and branched-chain amino acids, Ultra Glucose Control supports a balanced glucose response and sustained energy release. UCAN SuperStarch™ contains more than 95% heat-moisture treated amylopectin, which is designed to digest slowly, leading to a sustained glucose and insulin response and prolonged satiety.
Ultra Glucose Control:
- Supports a healthy insulin response, helping to manage glucose levels.3
- Provides satiation (feeling of fullness) and supports muscle-building capacity.
- Is intended for use with the support of your healthcare practitioner and in concert with healthy lifestyle choices, including a healthy eating plan and regular exercise.
Each serving contains:
- 15 grams of a pea/rice protein blend enhanced with branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine).
- 1 gram of L-arginine to support carbohydrate metabolism.
- 22 essential vitamins and minerals—including vitamin D3, chromium, biotin, and magnesium—to support overall health.
- Monounsaturated fats to support healthy blood lipid levels.
