Ridge Crest Herbals Blood Sugar Balance, 120 caps

Blood Sugar Balance is a simple formula that works. Most of the formulas in the RidgeCrest Herbals brand are complex and have a wide range of ingredients.

In the case of Blood Sugar Balance we adopted a formula from ancient Chinese medicinal wisdom and made only one simple change, based on modern knowledge of herbs, to make it both less expensive and more effective.

White Tiger Decoction (bai hu tang) is a white powder that has been known in Traditional Chinese Medicine for nearly two thousand years, and has long been used to treat symptoms that we now associate with blood sugar regulation.

The basic formula includes 4 ingredients: gypsum, anemarrhena root, licorice root, and rice. To these, the ancients occasionally added ginseng, an herb of nearly mythical qualities but traditionally very expensive and difficult to obtain.

Today, we know a little more about the role of these ingredients, but some of their actions have yet to be fully understood. Gypsum is calcium sulfate, and calcium helps to stabilize blood sugar.

Anemarrhena root has traditionally been used to help maintain and regulate energy levels and fortify the pancreas. Chinese licorice root is used to strengthen the stomach and spleen, and also to harmonize and reduce the harsh effects of many other ingredients.

Nonglutinous rice is credited by the Chinese to help restore the natural acid balance of both the blood and the intestinal tract.

However, where the ancients sometimes used ginseng, we now use eleuthero root (often mis-named “siberian ginseng”), which is both easier to grow and less expensive than its fabled asian namesake, and better known for its effects in regulating metabolism and energy levels. Together, these ingredients help the body provide stable, consistent energy for a healthy life!

Ridge Crest Herbals was founded in 1994 to bring professional herbal formulations to health food stores.  Their formulas use ingredients from Chinese, European, Ayurvedic, Native American, and other natural disciplines.They are a pioneer in combining herbal and homeopathic remedies.

They specialize in complex formulas with many synergistic ingredients. Complex formulas work better on a broad variety of individuals and conditions. They also have fewer serious side effects and interactions than simple formulas.
