GlycoTrol®, essential amino acids that support healthy blood-sugar levels already within the normal range.*
GlycoTrol was designed by Dr. Charles I. Jarowski, Director of Research and Development at Pfizer, Inc., to balance dietary essential amino acids and support and maintain healthy blood-sugar.*
Healthy blood sugar, in turn, supports eye, kidney and circulatory health...critical to everyone as we age.*
Dr. Jarowski identified the essential amino acids most frequently lacking in the American diet, and by simply supplementing these amino acids before a meal as part of your diet, GlycoTrol helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level.*
Studies continue to highlight the importance of additional nutrients that play an important role in healthy sugar metabolism.* With these additions, GlycoTrol Complete reflects the very best of modern research.*
When you look back at the diet of prehistoric peoples, paleo-anthropologists tell us that the average intake of folic acid (not methylfolate) was approximately 5 mg per day, far above the amount found in dietary supplements today.
Dr. Weston Price traveled the world visiting many tribes and groups of people who still consumed diets very similar to the diets common to ancient man. Almost without exception, those people were far healthier than those consuming a modern diet.
At Lidtke®, they have searched far and wide for a form of folate that approximates the form found in the diet of ancient man. The best that they have found is the Organic Lemon Peel Extract which they now provide in all of their products that require folate. they see no contraindications for the use of this ingredient.
Methylfolate on the other hand may bypass our natural methylation feedback controls and may be contraindicated for a portion of the population who are prone to elevated methylation. Lidtke strives to benefit the widest population possible, and for this reason they have chosen to use their Organic Lemon Peel Extract as a source of folate.
