BBI Healthcare

From the makers of Glucotabs , GlucoJuice is a handy caffeine free shot-sized sugar boost that can help to treat mild or moderate hypoglycemia.

The containers are thoroughly sealed and robust, so they can survive being in satchels, handbags or briefcases.

Each 60ml Berry Burst shot pot contains 15g fast-acting carbohydrate

Seek professional advice from your healthcare professional about how best to manage hypos.

Targeted at diabetics

Launched by BBI Healthcare, the product is targeted at diabetics, sports and fitness enthusiasts and those with a busy lifestyle.

GlucoJuice is a new entrant in the energy category. While there are date stamps on the products, GlucoJuice can last several years before being past their use-by date.

Handy for office drawers, glove compartments and the top shelf of the fridge (not that they need refrigerating, that’s just an option).
  • The drink is non-carbonated, fat free, caffeine free and gluten free and are available at a recommended retail price of £1.59 per 60ml bottle from leading independent pharmacies.
I find Glucogel very unpalatable and difficult to take so I was so happy when I discovered Gluco Juice in my local Boots branch. However the product was not restocked for some reason and although I have asked the staff on a number of occassions no-one has bothered to find out why. I found the Gluco Juice far more palatable and quicker acting and was really pleased with the results achieved after a hypo. Does anyone know if this product is stocked anywhere else, apart from the medical supply shop? Pharmacies everywhere are missing out on a no.1 product that can really help anyone who suffers with hypos. Please start stocking this great product.

Gluco juice is just what is needed and should be more readily available in stores.
