What is an unhealthy blood sugar level?

An unhealthy blood sugar level is common, but is not recommended for a healthy lifestyle. People, who have above average blood sugar levels, may find that a daily intake of mulberry leaf extract (Zuccarin™) is beneficial.

Higher than normal blood sugar levels is an indication that you should be aware of your lifestyle and particularly your diet and exercise.

How to maintain normal blood sugar levels with Zuccarin™

New Nordic in Scandinavia manufactures the Mulberry leaf tablets called Zuccarin in conjunction with Japanese scientists. They contain standardised extract of Mulberry leaf, which is rich in a natural active substance called moranoline (also know as DNJ).

Moranoline holds back complex carbohydrates, starches, maltose and sucrose from breaking down to glucose. Glucose is the form of sugar, which the body absorbs into the blood. Very high blood sugar levels can result in diabetes, which must be treated by a doctor. However many more people do have higher than normal blood sugar levels.

Mulberry Leaf extract helps the body to control peaks in blood sugars after meals and, as a part of a healthy diet and lifestyle can improve general health and wellbeing. A decrease in glucose absorption helps to reduce total calorie intake for weight control. Additionally you should follow a healthy diet to lose weight if you are overweight. Just 30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity, coupled with a 5-10% reduction in body weight, has shown to produce a significant reduction of blood sugar levels in most cases.

If you have any worries that your blood sugar levels are excessive, you must consult your GP /Doctor and follow their advice.

  • Take 1 or 2 Zuccarin™ tablets 15 minutes before each meal.
  • If you suffer from Diabetes, you must continue to monitor your blood sugar level.

Zuccarin ™ tablets are available from Holland & Barrett and all leading health food stores.
