Insulin's Evil Twin
This overlooked hormone might be the real reason you still struggle with out-of-control blood sugar. But most doctors (even alternative doctors) ignore it completely.
By Dr. Janet Zand
Quick question: What's the most overlooked blood-sugar hormone in your body?
If you guessed insulin, you're wrong. If you guessed cortisol or leptin, you're wrong again.
In fact, the #1 overlooked blood sugar hormone in your body is called glucagon. And this critical hormone may be the real reason you still struggle with your blood sugar.
You see, while insulin lowers blood sugar, glucagon raises it. So you need a healthy balance of both hormones to keep your blood sugar in check.
But when you have a blood sugar problem, this delicate balance gets disrupted. Your body starts ignoring insulin. And it starts pumping out massive amounts of glucagon.
Suddenly, glucagon transforms into insulin's "evil twin." Instead of working with insulin to maintain healthy blood sugar, it sends your glucose levels through the roof.
In fact, insulin's evil twin can actually double your blood sugar—even if you eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise!
Let me show you what I mean.
Normally, glucagon levels go down when you eat. That helps keep your blood sugar from spiking after a meal.
But when you have a blood sugar problem, your glucagon levels don't go down.
Instead, your body keeps dumping stored glucose into your bloodstream — even as your blood sugar skyrockets from your recent meal.
That triggers what I call a "double-ended" blood sugar spike. You get the normal post-meal jump in your blood sugar. And on top of that, you get a second blood sugar spike from glucagon!
And that's just the tip of the iceberg...
To fight this sudden jump in blood sugar, your pancreas pumps out more and more insulin. That forces excess blood sugar into your liver for storage. And it gets your blood sugar under control—for a little while.
Unfortunately, glucagon can dump that stored sugar right back into your bloodstream. And that starts the whole vicious cycle all over again.
Your blood sugar skyrockets. Your pancreas makes more insulin to get your levels down. And then glucagon shoots your blood sugar right back up again!
Over time, this back-and-forth cycle can cause your insulin-producing beta cells to wear down...burn out...and even die. When that happens, your body can't make insulin at all.
And here's the worst part: Even as your insulin levels plummet, your glucagon levels can stay sky-high.
In other words, insulin's "evil twin" can keep flooding your body with more and more sugar...even as your ability to get rid of that excess sugar disappears.
But here's the good news...
There's a simple way to win the battle with insulin's "evil twin." I'll tell you all about this breakthrough in a moment. But first, let me introduce myself.
My name is Dr. Janet Zand. I'm a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a Board Certified Acupuncturist. For over 25 years, I've been helping people find natural solutions to their blood sugar worries.
During that time, I've discovered dozens of herbs and nutrients that support healthy blood sugar and improve insulin function. And today, I'd like to tell you about a new breakthrough in blood sugar science.
This breakthrough naturally lowers glucagon levels. It supports healthy insulin levels, too. It even helps your body burn off excess blood sugar. And this breakthrough works fast—in as little as 7 days!
The secret to this amazing breakthrough is a 5,000-year-old Chinese nutrient. For centuries, this nutrient was used to treat infections and fight inflammation. But recently, modern medical science discovered that it can have a powerful impact on your blood sugar, too!
So what is this amazing nutrient? It's called berberine. And it's one of the most powerful blood sugar breakthroughs I've ever seen.
In a recent study, scientists gave berberine to patients with serious blood sugar problems. Another group got a placebo.
The scientists expected the patients' blood sugar to improve. And it did. What they didn't expect was how much it would improve—or how quickly.
During the 12-week trial, patients saw their fasting blood sugar go from 172 to 97.1 That's unprecedented!
What's more, their glucose tolerance—a measure of how well they metabolize excess blood sugar—improved by 44%. And their hemoglobin A1C decreased from 8.1 to 7.3.2
The best part? This ancient nutrient works fast. Patients started seeing improvements in just 7 days. After 14 days, their blood sugar dropped by up to 38 points. And their levels stayed steady for the rest of the study.3
But until recently, no one knew why berberine is so effective at supporting healthy blood sugar. Then a team of researchers made an amazing discovery. You see, berberine...
Supports healthy blood sugar 3 different ways
First, berberine helps lower glucagon levels. Studies show it increases levels of a special hormone called GLP-1.4 GLP-1 is a sort of "off switch" for glucagon production.
That stops your liver from dumping excess sugar into your bloodstream. And it transforms glucagon from insulin's "evil twin" into a powerful partner in maintaining healthy blood sugar.
Second, berberine actually helps stop blood sugar spikes before they start. How? By slowing down carbohydrate digestion.5 That helps avoid any big spikes in your glucose levels.
Finally, berberine promotes healthy insulin levels.6 At the same time it lowers glucagon, it signals your pancreas to start producing just the right amount of insulin—not too much and not too little.
Berberine's ability to protect you from insulin's "evil twin" can make a big difference in your blood sugar. And I want to make sure everyone has access to this amazing breakthrough.
That's why I called our friends at Advanced Bionutritionals. As you may know, Advanced Bionutritionals makes high-grade supplements. And they have an inside line on the best sources of high-quality herbs and other raw materials.
Thanks to those insider connections, they were able to get their hands on a small batch of high-quality berberine extract—the same kind used in scientific studies. That's great news for anyone who wants to support healthy blood sugar.
But I still wasn't satisfied. You see, blood sugar problems are complex. No single nutrient can address all the causes and complications. To do that, you need a complete blood sugar solution.
That's why I added a special blend of herbs and nutrients to this powerful berberine extract. Together, these ingredients promote optimal glucagon and insulin levels. They support healthy blood sugar. They can even help protect you from dangerous complications.
In fact, one of these herbs can even give you...
The blood sugar benefits of regular exercise—in a pill
What if I told you that there's a scientifically proven way to get the blood sugar benefits of exercise—without lifting a finger?
You'd probably be skeptical. I certainly was. But then I saw the research on an ancient Indian herb known as karela.
Dozens of scientific studies show karela supports healthy blood sugar.7 But that's not what caught my eye. What made me sit up and take notice is how this ancient herb works its magic.
You see, karela works by causing your body to release a special compound called AMPK.8 And that's great news.
Why? Because AMPK works as a metabolic "master switch".
It helps promote optimal thyroid function. It supports healthy insulin levels. And it promotes better glucose metabolism
In one study, scientists gave patients karela extract. And the results were impressive. In fact, the patients' fasting blood sugar dropped an astounding 54%.9 That's more than half!
Normally, your body only releases AMPK when you exercise. But studies show karela boosts AMPK levels even when you're sitting still. In fact, it increases AMPK activity by up to 35%.10
That's about the same amount as taking a brisk walk.11 And when you combine that boost with a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can get even better results!
The inflammation remedy that lowers your blood sugar
You probably know that problem blood sugar causes inflammation. That's because high blood sugar floods your body with enzymes like COX-2.
That's a problem, because high COX-2 levels can trigger joint pain, arterial rust, and even contribute to memory loss. Worse, this constant inflammation makes it almost impossible to balance your blood sugar.
You see, inflammation not only affects your joints, arteries, and nerves. It also keeps insulin from doing its job. It even attacks the insulin-producing beta cells in your pancreas.
That sets off a dangerous downward spiral. The worse your blood sugar, the higher your COX-2 levels. That creates more inflammation..... more damage to your beta cells...and makes your blood sugar problems worse.
So how do you break this dangerous cycle? Simple. You use a natural inflammation fighter that also lowers your blood sugar: turmeric.
This yellow spice has been used to soothe the fires of inflammation for over 2500 years. And for good reason. Study after study shows turmeric stops inflammation before it starts.
How? By inhibiting COX-2 and other inflammatory enzymes at the source.12 That can go a long way towards help breaking the cycle of inflammation and problem blood sugar.
But that's not all. A recent study of 240 people with serious blood sugar problems found turmeric also improves insulin function, lowers blood sugar, and improves hemoglobin A1C.13
Another study found turmeric helps increase insulin levels after a meal—when you need it the most.14 And yet another study found this healing spice can even reverse the effects of a bad diet!15
The RIGHT kind of gymnema
You've probably heard about gymnema sylvestre, the ancient herb known as the "sugar destroyer." This Indian herb is a staple in most blood sugar formulas, and for good reason: Over 29 studies show that gymnema helps improve blood sugar and supports healthy insulin function.16
But there's just one problem: Most gymnema supplements on the market are absolutely worthless! You see, most scientific studies on gymnema don't use the plant itself. They use a concentrated extract called gymnenic acid.
Unfortunately, most blood sugar supplements don't use gymnemic acid; they use the dried leaves of the gymnema plant. And that's a big problem.
You see, the average gymnema leaf contains just 1% gymnemic acid.17 That's not nearly enough to have any impact on your blood sugar. In fact, you'd have to eat a half-pound of dried gymnema a day to see any effect at all!
What's worse, many supplements that use gymnema extract only contain a fraction of the effective dosage. In some cases, they barely contain any gymnemic acid at all.
I wanted to make sure everyone gets the real benefits of this powerful blood sugar buster. That's why Advanced Blood Sugar Formula contains a concentrated 16:1 gymnema extract, standardized to a whopping 75% pure gymnemic acid.
That's the same kind of high-potency gymnema used in scientific studies. It's up to 3 times more powerful than other gymnema extracts. And it's up to 75 times more potent than dried gymnema leaf.
The magic berry that protects your body from the ravages of high blood sugar
Imagine if there was a single nutrient that could lower bad cholesterol...boost "good" cholesterol...and slash your triglycerides.
Now imagine this same nutrient could stop dangerous arterial rust and keep your arteries smooth and supple.
And imagine this breakthrough could also protect your eyes, kidneys, and nerves from the ravages of high blood sugar.
Well, you don't have to imagine any of that. This miracle nutrient exists. It's an Indian fruit called amla. And it's one of the best ways I know of to protect your heart, arteries, nerves, and eyes from the ravages of problem blood sugar.
You see, clinical studies show that amla...
In a double-blind placebo controlled study, scientists gave one group of patients a concentrated amla extract. Another group got a placebo. And after just 12 weeks, the results were clear.
Incredibly, the amla group's total cholesterol plummeted from 193 to 164. That's a drop of 29 points.18 That's almost unheard of, especially in such a short amount of time.
What's more, their LDL (bad) cholesterol dropped 20 points. And their protective HDL (good) cholesterol went up, too. On top of that, the amla group's triglycerides went from 155 to 106—an amazing improvement of 49 points!19
If amla just lowered your cholesterol and supported healthy triglyceride levels, that would be enough. But this tiny Indian berry supports healthy circulation, too.
It reduces inflammation in the delicate cells that line your arteries.20 And it helps improve and enhance circulation, too—so your arteries stay smooth, supple, and healthy.21
Amla also helps protect your eyes, nerves, and kidneys from the ravages of out of control blood sugar. That's because it zaps a dangerous enzyme called aldose reductase.
Aldose reductase attacks the tiny blood vessels in your eyes, nerves, and kidneys. It triggers inflammation and increases free radicals. Worse, it destroys key antioxidants like glutathione.

The good news? Studies show amla can cut aldose reductase levels in half.22 And that can go a long way towards keeping your vision clear...your kidneys healthy...and your memory sharp.
The most complete blood sugar formula available
If Advanced Blood Sugar Formula only contained the breakthroughs I just told you about, it would still be the most complete blood sugar formula on the market today.
After all, very few formulas protect you from insulin's "evil twin". And no other formula has Advanced Blood Sugar Formula's unique blend of herbs and nutrients to promote better blood sugar, improve insulin function, and protect you from dangerous complications.
But frankly, I still wasn't satisfied. You see, I wanted to make sure Advanced Blood Sugar Formula was the most powerful and effective blood sugar solution on the market today.
That's why this breakthrough formula also includes these other nutrients to support healthy weight loss...curb sugar cravings...and promote perfectly-balanced blood sugar:
Chromium -- Studies show chromium promotes healthy insulin function. And there's evidence it helps curb sugar cravings, too. In one study, 70% of the people who took chromium reported fewer cravings. And the people with the worst cravings reported the biggest improvement.23
Cinnamon — over 70 studies show that cinnamon supports healthy blood sugar, improves insulin function, and promotes healthy insulin levels.24 But that's not all. Amazingly, this common kitchen spice also promotes healthy blood pressure.25 And it supports healthy cholesterol levels, too.26
Magnesium —This overlooked mineral is critical to healthy insulin function. In fact, without magnesium, you can't make insulin at all. What's more, magnesium can have a powerful effect on your blood sugar. One study found it improved glucose levels a whopping 37%.27
Just imagine your life without constantly struggling with your out-of-control blood sugar. Imagine having more energy to enjoy time with your grandchildren, play 18 holes or spend time working in your garden. And imagine how great it will feel to finally put your blood sugar worries behind you.
