Ben’s Supplement for Type 2 Diabetes: Glucose Control

Ben’s Glucose Control, one of the leading supplements for type 2 diabetes, contains twelve clinically proven, natural ingredients to help stabilize and maintain optimal blood sugar levels.

Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas doesn’t produce or use insulin properly. When the body doesn’t use insulin effectively, this is known as insulin resistance.

More than 37 million Americans have diabetes, and approximately 90-95% of them have type 2 diabetes.

This type of diabetes is highly associated with obesity, poor diet, and lifestyle practices.

In many cases, the first line of treatment for these patients is adopting a healthier lifestyle through a well-balanced diet, regular exercise, and cutting out bad habits such as smoking.

Clinically formulated, Glucose Control works alongside lifestyle changes to reverse type 2 diabetes, regenerate your pancreas, aid weight loss, alleviate diabetic symptoms, prevent oxidative damage, and prevent the progression of diabetes.

How does Glucose Control work?

Glucose Control is an all-natural, clinical-grade diabetes supplement that is designed to work as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle to help manage type 2 diabetes. 

We formulated Ben’s Glucose Control to lower your HBA1c levels and restore normal insulin sensitivity. 

What are the active ingredients in Glucose Control?


Chromium is an element found in the crust of the earth and seawater. It also exists in several other natural sources, such as rocks, plants, soil, vegetables, and nuts.

Chromium plays a crucial role in metabolizing proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. It also helps you maintain a normal blood glucose level.


Berberine is an ammonium salt that can help with diabetes and manage diabetes complications. You can find it in the roots, rhizome, stem, and bark of certain plants. 

Berberine works against oxidative stress and inflammation, which are two things that help in type 2 diabetes. 

In Ben’s Glucose Control, berberine controls blood sugar levels by inhibiting the absorption of sugar in the intestine and enhancing insulin production.


Banaba is a plant that can help to reduce blood glucose levels and improve insulin sensitivity. It enhances the ability of cells to absorb glucose and helps normalize blood sugar and insulin levels.


L-Leucine is an amino acid that can regulate several cellular processes, such as protein synthesis, tissue regeneration, and metabolism.

Supplementation of L-Leucine can significantly reduce HbA1c levels and improve blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity.

Cassia Cinnamon Bark

Cinnamon bark can be used to make medicine. It aids in blood glucose management by improving insulin release and enhancing insulin sensitivity.

Bitter Melon

Bitter melon is a plant that can help diabetic patients to manage the symptoms of their condition. It increases insulin secretion while decreasing insulin resistance, thus helping to restore normal blood sugar levels and pancreatic function.


Gynostemma is a climbing vine native to China that is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine. 

When taken as an oral capsule, the concentrated extracts enhance insulin sensitivity, leading to improved glucose control.


Folate is the natural form of vitamin b9. You can find folate in certain foods, such as spinach, broccoli, kale, avocado, eggs, and citrus fruits.

Your body uses folate to make and repair DNA, produce certain proteins, and make healthy red blood cells.

Studies show that folate can reduce insulin resistance, aid in weight loss, lower your risk of stroke, and reduce cognitive decline.


Magnesium is an essential mineral that helps your body function correctly. It helps increase glucose control, improve heart health, reduce blood pressure levels, and get better sleep.


Zinc is a trace mineral that is essential for many functions in the body. Studies have shown that zinc is beneficial in type 2 diabetes and can help promote healthy insulin function and improve glucose levels.

Myo-Inositol and D-Chiro Inositol

Inositol is a type of sugar produced by your body and found in some foods. Some foods containing inositol include whole grains, almonds, dried prunes, beans, and peas.

Inositol supplements have many health benefits. Studies show that inositol can help reduce blood sugar levels, improve insulin sensitivity, reduce anxiety, improve fertility in PCOS women, promote regular ovulation, reduce insulin levels, and lower your risk of diabetes.

What does research say about the active ingredients?


There has been growing interest and research surrounding the effects of chromium supplements on diabetes since the 1950s. 

A double-blind, placebo-controlled study assessed 180 people with type 2 diabetes and the effects of supplemental chromium. This revealed that Chromium could improve fasting glucose, postprandial glucose, insulin, hemoglobin A1c, and cholesterol. 

In a follow-up study, 833 patients with type 2 diabetes were monitored for ten months on CRP treatment (500 μg/day). 

Findings revealed that chromium supplementation significantly reduced diabetes symptoms, including fatigue, thirst, and frequent urination.


Researchers have noticed that berberine suppresses oxidative stress and inflammation in tissues. These include kidney tissue, fat tissue, liver tissue, pancreatic tissue, and others. 

A three-month-long trial compared berberine and metformin on 36 diabetic patients with a new diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. 

The study found that berberine’s blood sugar-lowering effect was like that of Metformin, and berberine led to significant decreases in hemoglobin a1c, from 9.5% to 7.5%.

The promising results of this trial suggest that berberine works similarly to the prescription diabetes medication Metformin, except without any adverse side effects.


Research shows that banaba can help the body to use insulin more efficiently and aid in weight loss. 

A scientific study found patients treated with 10mg of banaba leaf extract over 30 days had decreased blood sugar levels within 60 minutes.

Another scientific study found that participants who took a banaba supplement lost an average of 2.7 pounds. Whereas those in the placebo group gained an average of 3.4 pounds. 


A study on diet-induced obese mice found that leucine supplementation significantly improved glucose and energy metabolism. 

This suggests that leucine supplementation could be a beneficial adjuvant therapy for obesity and type 2 diabetes

Cassia Cinnamon Bark

Cinnamon bark has been shown to increase insulin and insulin sensitivity, prevent heart disease, increase antioxidant use in the body, lower blood sugar levels and blood pressure, and aid in weight loss. 

A 4-18 week meta-analysis of 543 patients found that cinnamon supplements reduced levels of fasting plasma glucose, total cholesterol, and triglycerides.

In a triple-blind placebo-controlled study, 140 type 2 diabetic patients received cinnamon bark powder or placebo in 500 mg capsules twice daily for three months. 

Cinnamon supplementation led to improvement in BMI, HbA1C, fasting insulin, insulin resistance, and cholesterol.

Bitter Melon 

Researchers have found that bitter melon can have a hypoglycemic effect and help to lower blood sugar levels. 

A 10-week study with 95 patients found that consumption of bitter melon significantly reduced blood glucose levels. Scientists have found that one of the ways bitter melon works is by decreasing the intestines’ uptake of glucose.

Multiple studies have shown that bitter melon can inhibit intestinal absorption of glucose, suppress key glucogenic enzymes, and decrease hepatic gluconeogenesis.


One study tested the effects of gynostemma and found that steady-state plasma glucose responses markedly decreased after the treatment, indicating improved insulin sensitivity.

Another study found that patients who took gynostemma had their fasting plasma glucose levels decreased. This study shows a prompt improvement in glycemia and insulin sensitivity. Thereby providing a basis for a novel, effective, and safe approach using Gynostemma to treat type 2 diabetic patients.


A 2016 systematic review found that supplementing with folic acid led to significant decreases in insulin resistance and obesity because folate positively affects glucose metabolism. 

Another study used folate nanoparticles to control blood glucose levels. Supplementing with folate resulted in a five-fold increase in the cellular absorption of insulin, leading to effective blood sugar control.


A meta-analysis of 13 cohort studies involving 536,318 participants and 24,516 cases detected a significant inverse association between magnesium intake and the risk of type 2 diabetes. This suggests that higher magnesium intake may lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Another study found that a significant deficiency in magnesium increases the risk of dying from heart disease.

A 2012 study found that magnesium supplementation can effectively lower blood pressure levels. Another study found that magnesium supplements work on both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. 


A systematic review found that zinc is beneficial for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. They concluded that zinc plays an important role in insulin action, β-cell function, glucose homeostasis, and the pathogenesis of diabetes and its complications.

A 2020 study found that diabetics are more likely to have low zinc levels than people without diabetes. They also found that low zinc levels were associated with poor glycemic control.

Replenishing zinc levels through supplementation may have a positive impact on glucose management in type 2 diabetics or those with prediabetes.

Myo-Inositol and D-Chiro Inositol

A comparative study compared the effects of myo-inositol vs metformin on a group of insulin-resistant patients. 

They concluded that both myo-inositol and metformin have similar positive effects on insulin levels, hormone levels, and fasting blood sugar.

A different study found that myo-inositol improved insulin sensitivity and concluded that this supplement should be considered in patients with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, and those with or at risk of gestational diabetes.

Another study also found that inositol, with lifestyle changes, may improve the metabolic profile in women with PCOS.

A different study looked at the effectiveness of myo-inositol and d-chiro inositol in treating type 2 diabetes in patients already taking glucose-lowering medications. 

Participants took a combination of myo-inositol (550 mg) and d-chiro-inositol (13.8 mg) twice a day for three months.

After the three months, participants saw significant decreases in fasting blood glucose and HbA1c levels compared to baseline, and none of the participants reported side effects. 

The researchers concluded that supplementing with a combination of myo- and d-chiro-inositol is an effective and safe strategy for improving glycemic control in type 2 diabetes mellitus.

How long does Glucose Control take to work?

When looking for supplements for diabetes, a natural question you’re going to want to know is how quickly it will work. 

However, depending on the individual state of your health, your diet, lifestyle, and a range of other factors, personal recovery for each diabetic patient can vary.

Most people report noticeable improvements in the first 6 weeks of regular use with continued, gradual improvements thereafter. 

Sometimes you can see effects even faster, but it’s important to understand your body has to process it more slowly since it is not like a drug.

To achieve optimum results as quickly as possible, we also recommend following the specific diet and lifestyle protocols laid out in the ‘How To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes’ guide.

Is it safe to take?

Ben’s Glucose Control is 100% drug-free, 100% natural, and 100% side-effect-free.

When it comes to the ingredients in our products, we rigorously test them to ensure that they meet the American Pharmacological standards and the American herbal products association standards. Our manufacturing facilities are also all US-based and FDA-monitored.

All our finished products are tested by a third-party laboratory using United States pharmacopeial test 1119 (near-infrared spectrography). This ensures that the supplement matches the label and is safe, pure, and of high quality.

How are Glucose Control and Glyco-Optimizer different?

We are very excited to announce that we have reformulated, redesigned, and renamed our diabetes supplement. 

This new formulation contains 5 additional ingredients, and we’ve increased the dosages of some of the key ingredients that were in the older formulation. We have renamed the supplement from Glyco-Optimizer to Glucose Control.

5 new ingredients

Our new and improved Glucose Control contains 5 new ingredients! These new ingredients are:

  • Folate (as L-Methylfolate Calcium): can reduce insulin resistance and obesity, improve blood sugar control, and counteract cognitive decline.
  • Magnesium (as magnesium Oxide): reduces progression of type 2 diabetes, enhances insulin sensitivity, decreases insulin resistance, and improves glycemic control.
  • Zinc (as Zinc Oxide): has positive effects on glucose management, can speed up wound healing, and reduces inflammation.
  • Inositol: reduces blood glucose and insulin levels, enhances insulin sensitivity, and lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • D-Chiro Inositol: improves insulin sensitivity and assists cells in using insulin more efficiently.

All 12 of the ingredients in Glucose Control work together to support optimal blood sugar metabolism, metabolic health, and weight management. 

Increased dosage of berberine in every serving

Berberine is known to be a powerful supplement for diabetes. Among its many benefits, berberine can lower blood sugar levels, aid with weight loss, reduce diabetes complications, and improve cardiovascular health.

In fact, a pilot study directly compared berberine and metformin and found that berberine produced identical results as metformin in terms of improving blood glucose metabolism, making berberine a popular natural alternative to the diabetes medications like metformin.

Newer research showed that by increasing the dosage of berberine in Glucose Control, we could increase its efficacy.

For these reasons, we’ve decided to include more berberine in our diabetes supplement, and Glucose Control contains 350 mg more berberine, with 750 mg total per serving! 

Bitter melon is twice as concentrated

In the previous version of our supplement, we used 300mg of a 10:1 Bitter Melon Fruit extract. 

Our new formulation uses 200mg of a 20:1 Bitter Melon Fruit extract. Essentially, this new extract is twice as concentrated as the previous one.

As a result, you receive more of the active ingredient in a higher potency form, which will be more effective at helping you lower your blood sugar levels!

The daily dose is now 4 capsules a day

We have increased the number of daily capsules you take from three to four. We made this adjustment to allow us to increase the dosages of several compounds and include five additional ingredients in our reformulated supplement. 

Glucose Control is based on the latest scientific research and the best current understanding of diabetes management and insulin sensitivity. 

When formulating supplements, we always aim to offer the most comprehensive, effective, and fastest-acting supplement possible. And the changes to the supplement and the inclusion of these ingredients achieve that. 

While the shift from three to four capsules may require a minor adjustment in your daily routine, this change allows us to offer a more comprehensive formulation designed to further support glucose control and overall metabolic health.

You should take 4 capsules per day for maximum efficacy. You can either take all 4 capsules at once with your main meal OR split them between your lunch and dinner, 2 with lunch, and 2 with dinner. As long as you take the full daily dosage, efficacy is unaffected.


Overall, the changes we have made to Glucose Control mean that this new and improved version of our diabetes supplement will be more effective.

Glucose Control is based on the latest scientific evidence and the best current understanding of diabetes management and insulin sensitivity.

We carefully considered these changes with our customer’s best interests in mind and after a thorough review of the latest scientific literature.

How does it compare to other supplements for diabetes?

Naturally, you may wonder how our product compares to other supplements for diabetes. 

It is important to note that, unlike some other supplements, Ben’s Glucose Control has the following:

  • 100% natural ingredients.
  • Clinically significant dosages.
  • Ingredients shown to work in peer-reviewed, double-blind studies.
  • Chelated ingredients for better absorption and effectiveness.

While many diabetes supplements have scientifically backed natural ingredients, the vast majority contain only a few essential diabetes ingredients. And this is usually in low and ineffective dosages, without chelating ingredients for better absorption and bioavailability.

A therapeutic dose is the amount of the ingredient you will need to have a clinical effect proven by scientific studies. It’s also important that the diabetes supplement you take contains natural nutrients. You do not want it to have any synthetic ingredients or genetically modified organisms.

Our dietary supplements are extracted from the highest quality, natural ingredients, and freshly harvested herbs, using rigorous, cold press extraction methods to optimize dosage and bioavailability.

Bioavailability refers to the extent to which the supplement makes its way to the body’s tissues rather than being flushed out. As a result, the body efficiently absorbs our Glucose Control.

To ensure the efficacy, potency, and freshness of Glucose Control, we pick fresh herbs at the season’s peak. Then, each herb is qualified under specific quality guidelines under the CGMP and FDA. This 3rd party process of qualification ensures 100% quality testing of every herb before we add it to our Glucose Control.

After this testing, we make sure that the herbs maintain their freshness and efficiency. We achieve this by cold pressing and suspending in glycerin, a compound known for its antimicrobial and antiviral properties. So, through this diligent process, our preparations maximize the potency and efficacy of our supplements.
