Metabolic Xtra is a unique product for supporting healthy glucose metabolism which not only combines the two better-known natural health supplement contenders in this arena but also recognizes the value and brings the symbiotic contributions of three less heralded ones to bear on this important problem.

Product Notes:

There are a number of natural supplements available to support healthy glucose metabolism and insulin function, including some quite well associated with that – berberine and chromium (especially the ChromeMate variety).

Metabolic Xtra not only incorporates those ingredients, but also includes Resveratrol, alpha lipoic acid (ALA), and Vitamin C for their ancillary role in reducing fasting glucose levels, reducing inflammation, and improving aortic function and their supporting roles in reducing the oxidative stress and complications that those with abnormally fluctuating blood sugar levels are often subject to.


Medicinal Ingredients (per capsule):

Berberine (berberine hydrochloride): 315 mg
DL-Alpha-Lipoic Acid: 100 mg
Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate): 21 mg
resVida® Resveratrol (trans-resveratrol): 20 mg
Chromium (chromium polynicotinate): 200 mcg

Non-medicinal ingredients: Vegetarian capsule (hypromellose, water), hypoallergenic plant cellulose.

Featuring the ChromeMate® brand niacin-bound chromium; ChromeMate® & logo are trademarks of Lonza or its affiliates.

resVida® is a trademark of DSM.

This is Non-GMO, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Vegetarian product suitable for Vegans.

Suggested Usage:

Adults: Take 1 capsule 2 times daily with meals.


Do not use Metabolic Xtra if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you have diabetes, gallstones, hypoglycemia, hypotension, a liver disorder, or cardiovascular disease; or if you are taking a prescription medication (as resveratrol and berberine may alter their effectiveness).

Stop use and consult a healthcare practitioner if you experience symptoms of hypoglycemia (including feelings of anxiety, dizziness, tremor, sweating, nausea, headache, paleness, chills or confusion) or if you experience symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort (such as constipation, vomiting, abdominal pain or diarrhea). Some people may experience skin irritation, facial flushing and slowed heart rate.
