Blood sugar (glucose) is the fuel that provides energy to every living cell in
the body, including the brain, nervous system,and muscles. The body is designed
to convert carbohydrates, proteins and fats to make glucose, and there are many
systems within the body that assist with this process. But the pancreas is
particularly important, because it produces insulin, the hormone responsible
for regulating the levels of glucose in the blood stream. Keeping glucose
concentrations at proper levels is critical to good health.
When glucose levels get low (hypoglycemia), they can cause confusion, fatigue,
headaches, irritability, and many other symptoms. When they get too high
(hyperglycemia), they may cause excessive urination, thirst, hunger and more.
High blood sugar levels are often the first sign of diabetes. Diabetes is
divided in to three categories: gestational diabetes (which sometimes occurs
during pregnancy); Type 1, which occurs when the body makes little or no
insulin; and Type 2, where the body cannot produce enough insulin to keep up
with high blood glucose levels. Diabetes in any form can lead to many health
complications, some of which are really devastating.
Healthy blood sugar levels can be maintained by getting plenty of exercise and
especially eating a diet high in vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Foods high in sugar, should be eliminated or eaten in strict moderation!
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.
There are only five ingredients in Blood Sugar Balance, and they work together
very powerfully to help maintain balanced blood sugar levels.

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!
