Metagenics GlycemX™ 360° Medical Food
Nutritional Support for Conditions Associated with Type 2 Diabetes
GlycemX 360° is a low glycemic index medical food formulated to provide specialized nutritional support including reduced iso-alpha acids (RIAA, from hops), acacia, cinnamon, and chromium for patients with type 2 diabetes. This advanced formula features selective kinase response modulators (SKRMs) in the forms of RIAA and acacia, which have been shown to beneficially influence insulin and triglyceride levels. GlycemX 360° also provides therapeutic levels of cinnamon to help improve insulin sensitivity and chromium, biotin, and magnesium to promote healthy glucose metabolism and insulin function.
