New blood sugar supplement could help control glucose levels

Sugardown, a new dietary supplement from Boston Therapies Inc., could help individuals with pre-diabetes and diabetes to control glucose levels when combined with an appropriate diet and exercise.

Intended to be taken before eating, sugardown works by blocking the enzymes that help break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars, resulting in a lower amount of glucose that can absorbed into the blood stream.

"It is a non-systemic, chewable, complex carbohydrate-based compound, specifically designed to help maintain healthy glucose levels throughout the day," a press release on the product stated.

Retail launch in 2015

Sugardown is expected to hit store shelves in the first quarter of 2015, while it will be introduced through 83bar-Biophysical Prediabetes centers to patients as well.

"Implementing this strategy represents the next phase in our commercialization of sugardown®, a product we believe can play a positive role in the lives of many individuals who must watch their blood sugar," said Boston Therapeutics CEO David Platt, Ph.D.

More information about sugardown can be found on the product's official website.
