WHAT DOES IT DO?
According to the manufacturer:
"ProBeta is a dietary supplement that promotes healthy blood glucose levels in individuals whose fasting glucose levels are elevated. ProBeta is a patented extract derived from the plant Gymnema sylvestre and differs distinctly from other Gymnema products on the market. ProBeta is comprised only of that fraction of the plant that has glucose lowering activity. This fraction is carefully isolated from the rest of the plant in a process that makes ProBeta unlike other Gymnema products currently available.
As long as 2500 years ago Ayurvedic medicine, developed and practiced in India, used leaves from the Gymnema sylvestre plant as a treatment for the condition described as 'sweet urine'. More than twenty-five years ago Drs Shanmugasundaram became interested in Gymnema and began conducting research on it's therapeutic activity.
Their most widely copied extract called GS4 while effective in modulating blood glucose was found to prevent nutrient uptake and cause anemia. The Shanmugasundarams worked diligently to remove this effect and were successful in eliminating those fractions which prevented nutrient uptake. The result of this work was a new extract which is now patented and known as ProBeta. Clinical studies have verified our scientists' success and demonstrated that ProBeta is free of toxicity or adverse nutritional side effects."
