What Is GlyxGo?

By HighYa Staff
Published on: Jun 5, 2017

Using only 100% natural, organic, and scientifically studied ingredients, GlyxGo is a dietary supplement that promises to promote normal blood sugar and healthy weight.

On their website, the manufacturer tells us that the supplement accomplishes this through a variety of methods. These include reduced absorption of sugars and other carbohydrates, increased cellular glucose uptake, decreased glucose production in the liver and absorption in the intestines, and healthy insulin sensitivity.

In fact, they claim it will even “target diabetes directly and support total body wellness,” which is why it’s touted as India’s number one comprehensive blood sugar solution.

Based on seven years of research between a team of Indian and American doctors, users are instructed to take one capsule of GlyxGo every morning with a hearty breakfast. Depending on your individual blood sugar goals, you can even take more to help get you there faster.

What’s the deal with GlyxGo? Whether you’re diabetic or not, can you expect its ingredients to deliver on all the benefits promoted by the manufacturer? Or, might you consider some of the competition? Let’s start with the basics.

Your Quick Reference Guide to Blood Sugar

When digested by the body, carbohydrates (or fructose from fruit or lactose from milk) are broken down into a sugar molecule called glucose.

Once the body recognizes this glucose, it triggers the pancreas to release a hormone known as insulin, which acts as a “key” of sorts. Without it, glucose can’t enter cells or consequently be converted into energy.

If this occurs, this unprocessed glucose floats around in the blood. And if it gets too high, it can lead to nerve and blood vessel inflammation.

In some instances, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the existing insulin doesn’t work well, which is known as type 2 diabetes. When the body has a complete lack of insulin, this is known as type 1 diabetes.

As mentioned on the GlyxGo website, though, is there a link between blood sugar and weight?

Interviewed for a 2015 Health article, Osama Hamdy, MD, medical director of the obesity clinical program at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston and author of The Diabetes Breakthrough, noted:

“The cycle starts when you gain weight," Dr. Hamdy says. “The kicker is that once you have blood sugar problems, it's much harder to do the one thing that can really help: slim down. That may be why the majority of people with type 2 diabetes—about 80 percent—are overweight or obese.”

From there, David G. Marrero, Ph.D., president of health care and education at the American Diabetes Association, added that you should think of your body like a car:

“Fill the trunk with 500 pounds of gravel and it's harder to run. It needs more gas and it wears out the engine to get the same level of performance." That’s obesity. "Now think of insulin as the gas line between the fuel tank and the engine. Insulin resistance squeezes it, so when you need more fuel, it's harder to get.”

With this in mind, will anything contained in GlyxGo help normalize blood sugar and potentially lead to weight loss?

What Ingredients Are Found In GlyxGo?

According to the Nutrition Facts label found on the website, GlyxGo contains the following ingredients:

  • Vitamin B1
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin D
  • Chromium Picolinate
  • GlyxGo Blood Glucose Management Blend: Mulberry Leaf Extract, Cinnamon Bark Powder, Gymnema Sylvestre Extract, Insulina Leaf Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Berberine, Veld Grape Stem Extract, Banaba Leaf Extract, Linoleic Acid

Taking a look at their summarizations of the available clinical evidence on authoritative sites like the Natural Medicines Database, WebMD, and Examine.com, here’s what we learned:

Of all GlyxGo’s ingredients, there seems to be the most reported clinical evidence related to chromium (anywhere between 200-1000 mcg daily) and diabetes, although much of it is mixed. For example, in some instances, it’s been shown to decrease fasting blood glucose, reduce insulin levels, drop glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1C), and increase insulin sensitivity in those with type 2 diabetes.

On the other hand, some studies have not indicated a link between chromium and reduced glucose levels in individuals who aren’t deficient.

There is also some conflicting research showing that 600-1,200mg daily injections of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) may improve blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes.

Finally, taking 1,500mg of berberine daily has been shown in some studies to help manage blood sugar as well as prescription medications like metformin or rosiglitazone.

While all of this is positive, it’s important to reinforce the fact that no dosages are listed for these ingredients, which is equally as important as the ingredient itself.

What about for GlyxGo, specifically? On their website, the manufacturer references two human clinical trials, suggesting, “Ingestion can lead to a reduction in weight or body fat.” However, one linked to a study only on ALA, the other only referenced berberine. Neither mentioned GlyxGo by name.

Will GlyxGo’s Ingredients Cause Potential Side Effects?

When used within the recommended daily allowance (RDA), these same authoritative sites reported very few side effects related to GlyxGo’s ingredients.

Not to sound like a broken record, though, without dosages from the manufacturer, there’s no way to know if any component of the supplement exceeds the RDA, when applicable.

With this said, you should always consult with your physician before starting any new supplement regimen.

How Much Does GlyxGo Cost?

Available only to residents of India, a one-month supply (30 capsules) of GlyxGo will cost you ₹1625 plus ₹255.00 VAT, bringing your total to ₹1880.00.

All orders come with a 30-day money back guarantee, although we couldn’t locate a company name, contact information (whether phone number, email address, or online form), or Terms & Conditions listed on their website. As consumers ourselves, this raises a few red flags in our mind.

These concerns aside, is GlyxGo competitively priced?

GlyxGo vs. Other Blood Sugar Supplements

You only need to type “blood sugar supplement” into any search engine to find out just how many competitors GlyxGo currently has—hundreds, perhaps even thousands. What’s more, a meaningful number were priced as low as $10 (₹643), placing them meaningfully lower than GlyxGo.

Granted, many of these weren’t available for delivery to India at the time of our research, and none featured the exact same formulation as GlyxGo. However, searching for “blood sugar supplement India” returned several popular online retailers with options that promised to accomplish much of the same.

How to choose the right option for you?

As briefly mentioned earlier, it’s always a good idea to talk with your doctor before taking any new supplement. This is perhaps even more important if you’re looking to impact a vitally important component like blood sugar, at which point they could recommend different approaches based on your specific diagnosis.

Next, keep in mind that until January 2018 when the Food Standards and Safety Authority of India’s (FSSAI) functional foods and supplements guidelines take effect, there is essentially no government oversight or regulation of these products in the country. In other words, manufacturers can make essentially any claim they like, without having to back them up with clinical evidence.

Because of this current lack of governmental oversight, you’ll want to focus on purchasing a supplement from a reputable manufacturer with high marks from customers, who provides easy access to support and who clearly lists all their ingredients and dosages.

Let’s carry this thought over to the final section as we wrap things up.

What’s the Bottom Line About GlyxGo?

Regardless of where a supplement is sold, the fact that GlyxGo’s manufacturer doesn’t provide any information about them or how to get in contact with support raises a big red flag. So big, in fact, that as consumers ourselves, we’d recommend avoiding the supplement altogether.

After all, even though they provide a 30-day refund policy, how would you reach them to process one? Further, what if something happened to your order in transit and you needed to rectify the situation? Like us, what if you had questions about their formulation before handing over your hard-earned money?

And why doesn't the manufacturer think it's important to include these details?

Instead, if you’re looking to get the most value, we’d recommend making an appointment with your doctor, who can likely provide access to actionable information that can help you control your blood sugar, whether for weight loss or general health.

    Non effective medicine

    I bought this GlyxGo after going through an online advertisement where they claim immediate response on type 2 diabetes. But after having almost one month, there is no change in my sugar level nor any health improvement. No reduction in insulin nor any medicine.

    Very costly. I received 30 capsules in one file, plus courier charges.

    They also claim a money-back guarantee.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Unexpected indeed!

    • Jaipur, India,

    We were delivered a pack. It said it has 60 units, but it was not even half. As we are not supposed to open the pack and count before paying COD, we got duped. My mother did not give me any extraordinary report after consuming the entire lot within 20 days.

    Please stop duping people in the name of health; it's a crime.

    A story of frustration.

    I have been using GlyxGo since 45 days without any break besides my medicine prescribed by my doctor, who is a well-known endocrinologist in Kolkata, India.

    Before using the GlyxGo, my fasting sugar was 130-140, and PP sugar level was 180-200. I am a Type 2 diabetic patient since 2014. Seeing their advertisement in web media, I have started consuming the GlyxGo since 45 days. But I am very very very very sorry to say that my blood sugar level does not reduce. It is the same as it was.

    Now, my question is simple, are they a fraud who makes money from the net or a real friend of a diabetic patient? I am sure that they will not reply to me and will not take any action for my better health. I still hope for their communication shortly.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This company never shows their contact numbers or any address for communication. They are hiding their details, which means they aren't comfortable to show identity and their products may be only to earn money by cheating emotionally. I purchased this product but without any results.

    Dangerous for diabetics

    This is a dangerous product that can cause irreparable damage to the health of diabetics. I fell for this product and somehow believed that it can send diabetes into remission. I bought it for my husband. His sugar levels were under control earlier but this medicine causes such severe imbalance that his blood sugar which used to be between 98-100 to 140, with routine diabetic medicine started to fluctuate between 65 to 307. I felt really guilty of damaging his health. This is a dangerous medicine deserving criminal proceedings from the Government.

    I took one capsule with breakfast. My sugar level came down from 355 to 201. I intend to take it for one month and see the results. Right now I am taking insulin. I think it's worth a trial.

    GlyxGo has no role in sugar, it is fraud

    I purchased GglyGgo and it didn't work in bringing sugar level down. It is fake, and the company is doing fake advertising. They are cheating the people. I want my money back. Please help me how to recover it from the company.

    Fake product GlyxGo

    GlyxGo is the worst. It is an absolutely fake product. No contact number and address is mentioned on the medicine pack or anywhere. It is advertised on Facebook also, but it does not control the sugar level. It is only looting the public's money.

    Absolute FAKE product

    I had purchased GlyxGo in the hope of getting effective results, but I am totally disappointed! There is neither a drop in the blood sugar nor the weight. The company circulated fake stories of miraculous results and duped the people of India. They had also promised to refund the money in case of no result, but once contacted, they are absolutely silent on refunding of money. Instead, they are suggesting a continuation of the fake product for more months.

    I suggest that the people of India not purchase such a fake product, or in case they have purchased the same, by now to stop the intake at once, since you never know how the product may be destroying your vital organs in the body. It is imperative that such fake companies should be brought to the notice of the Government of India to impose a ban on the sale.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Please do not waste your money on GlyxGo. Tall claims. Horrible experience. Felt dizzy after taking the capsule. Believe me, do not be fooled. Please feel free to ask through my email. My diabetes became worse after taking this medicine.
