Supports a reduction of post-meal glycemic response in healthy individuals*
Contains a blend of plant-based carbohydrates and proteins
Provides a slower and more sustained release of glucose to help minimize acute blood sugar spikes and steady post-meal glucose levels*
Maintaining a healthy blood glucose balance is an important pillar of overall wellness. It’s why dietary supplementation with a whole food-based nutritional formula, such as Glucose Assist, is designed to maintain a healthy blood glucose level already in a normal range* which can be beneficial for encouraging wellness.
How Glucose Assist Works
Glucose Assist provides a slower and more sustained release of glucose* because it contains a slowly digestible complex carbohydrate source, EnergySMART®.
In addition, Glucose Assist provides protein-rich, plant-based nutrition sourced from peas, oats, pumpkin seed and buckwheat that might help further minimize blood glucose spikes and potentially help with a steady blood glucose management in healthy individuals*^. This can support a reduction of post-prandial glycemic response*, which has been demonstrated by recent Standard Process clinical studies.
High-Efficiency Fuel for the Body
In addition to supporting normal blood sugar levels already in a healthy range*, Glucose Assist is a low glycemic whole food-based nutritional formula that provides slow-release carbohydrates for sustained energy* — a benefit for many people, including endurance athletes.

You become what you eat

Your Organs of Detoxification
My 21 day Reset Detox Programs are designed to stimulate specific detoxification organs in the body—the liver, kidneys, and intestines. With help from these organs, your toxic load can decrease, and your body can concentrate its energy on detoxifying and cleaning up. This can help you achieve optimal health by cleansing your body from the inside out. The goal is to learn how to enhance your body’s ability to detox and remove these toxins on a daily basis. No matter where start, everyone can benefit from a detox program.
Aids the body in metabolizing fat, protein, and carbohydrates
Helps transform many toxins into harmless agents
Filter waste and excess fluid from the blood
Regulate and release the right balance of sodium, phosphorus, and potassium for the body to function properly
Digests food so that nutrients can be absorbed into the blood and transported to the liver
Provides a barrier that blocks toxins from the rest of the body
Absorbs water and electrolytes, forming waste that is excreted from the body
Produces antibodies for gastrointestinal health
Contains bacteria that create fatty acids and some vitamins for extra nutritional support
Why you may not be losing weight
body can’t release toxins through your intestines (poop) or kidney (urine) then
they can be deposited and stored in the body.
Over months, years, or even decades these can build up in the body and
the most common sites for us to deposit toxins is in our fat cells since many
of the chemicals in today’s environment and food are lipotrophic, meaning that
FAT. The challenge is that we
have to release those stored toxins from the fat cells before the fat cells can
shrink. This is one reason why you may
have been eating better and working out more but still seeing NO weight loss results.
Where We Store Toxins
What the heck is metabolic detoxification
detoxification is your body’s natural process of neutralizing and eliminating
toxins from your body. This three-phase
process unlocks fat-soluble toxins and converts them to a water-soluble state
that is easier for your body to remove. Your body needs key nutrients and
phytonutrients to support each of these phases.
Three phases of metabolic
Phase I: Unlock – Stored fat-soluble toxins transform into an “unlocked” state that is more water-soluble, and in many cases, more toxic than its original form. The foods and supplements recommended in the 21 day Reset Detox program delivers nutrients that activate enzymes required for Phase I reactions. It also supplies antioxidants that reduce stress on your body, such as tissue damage sometimes caused by these enzyme activities.
Phase II: Neutralize – The highly toxic substances produced in Phase I convert to non-toxic molecules and become even more water-soluble. The foods and supplements recommended in the 21 day Reset Detox program supplies key nutrients and amino acids needed to support Phase II enzymes. These enzymes enhance the water solubility of toxins.
Phase III: Eliminate – Water-soluble toxins leave your cells, and your body eliminates them. The foods and supplements recommended in the 21 Day Detox Program provides your body with plant-based fiber and water, which aid in toxin elimination.

Many men imagine themselves maintaining muscle mass, fitness, vitality, and a healthy sex life throughout the aging process. However, this is not always the case. Age-related testosterone decline — the key masculine hormone — can contribute to poor energy levels, sedentary lifestyles, and loss of libido.
Tongkat Ali contains a clinically trialed and standardized root extract of the revered Southeast Asian herb, Eurycoma longifolia, also called ‘Malaysian ginseng’ or ‘Long Jack’. This specific Tongkat Ali extract has been studied extensively in clinical trials.
Long used throughout Southeast Asian countries as a traditional tonic to promote healthy sexual interest and vitality, Tongkat Ali uses are also now supported by scientific evidence. Many of the benefits of Tongkat Ali are thought to be due to its positive effects on testosterone synthesis and free testosterone levels.
How Tongkat Ali Supports Men’s Health
The amount of testosterone in a man’s body naturally decreases with age. Levels tend to peak between the age of 25 and 30, but then decline gradually over time. At age 60, testosterone levels may have fallen by more than 50% with everyday stress, diet, exercise, and sleep also affecting normal levels. Testosterone levels strongly determine levels of sexual interest, mental and physical energy, and general well-being.
A special, standardized proprietary root extract of Tongkat Ali has been investigated in a number of research studies in men of Asian and American descent aged 40 years and over. These studies clearly demonstrate beneficial effects in various areas of men’s health that include sexual interest, healthy testosterone levels, free testosterone levels, overall well-being, and vitality.
Why Consider MediHerb® Tongkat Ali?
Tongkat Ali, an herbal testosterone support supplement for older men, supports normal testosterone production and healthy sexual interest.
It can be used in older men to help:
Support healthy sexual interest Support normal testosterone production/synthesis Support normal healthy testosterone levels Maintain free testosterone levels Support general well-being and vitality
