Diabetes Defeated

This is the story of how one member of the Health Sciences Institute (HSI) got off insulin in six
weeks… after nine years on prescription drugs! And if only she’d known about this “blood sugar sup-
plement” she could have prevented the whole problem before it ever started!
Catherine Downs was a 56-year-old with diabetes. She had been on insulin and oral prescription
medications for nine years when she agreed to test a new natural solution. Within six weeks, she
stopped not only her insulin but another prescription drug as well.
You read that right: In just six weeks an alternative doctor solved a problem that mainstream
medicine couldn’t handle in nine years and for thousands of dollars. The fact is that it costs the typi-
cal diabetic around $10,000 a year for treatment. Conventional medicine soaked this woman for
maybe $90,000 to treat a medical problem that plant remedies cured in no time at all! A standard
diabetes test showed Catherine went from severely diabetic to healthy in the course of the treatment.
But this diabetes breakthrough almost didn’t happen. Believe it or not, Jon Barron, the acclaimed
researcher who found this remedy, wanted nothing to do with creating a diabetes treatment. He
thought it would be a mistake to use herbs and nutrients to manage the symptoms of diabetes rather
than addressing the root cause – mainly the way we eat.
40 Percent of Americans At Risk
What changed Jon’s mind was the galloping diabetes epidemic all around us. Nearly 20 million
Americans already have full-blown diabetes, and up to 40 percent of the rest of us are pre-diabetic.
Diabetes is the No. 6 cause of death in the United States, and it’s destined to move up the charts
pretty quickly, given the way we eat. It’s hard to believe, but the average American scarfs down 152
pounds of sugar a year.
It’s easy to do, even if you think you’re being careful. For instance, sodas contain as much as a teaspoon
of sugar per ounce. There’s sugar in catsup, salad dressing, “organic” practically everything.
The key is to balance your blood sugar now—before you get sick. We take natural supplements
for cholesterol and blood pressure. Isn’t it about time for a natural solution to diabetes? Jon Barron
decided it was...
Seven herbs tackle diabetes seven different ways
Barron came at his solution from a wholly unique angle. Instead of just following the mainstream
approach, Barron addressed the fact that diabetes was the wrong point of attack. That’s because dia-
betes is the symptom of a metabolic problem, not the cause. So instead of dealing with that end

result, Barron developed a formula to help optimize the body’s ability to metabolize sugar properly.
Before formulating his product, Barron analyzed all the studies and competing claims for natural
diabetes treatments and sugar-regulating formulas. Ayurvedic medicine (the ancient tradition of India), for
example, offers 44 different natural remedies for diabetes. Other traditions offer dozens more. After
much study, Barron narrowed the menu down to six that had the best chance of creating a thorough,
root-cause approach to maximizing the body’s ability to metabolize sugar. Then, on the heels of a new
discovery, he added the seventh potent ingredient to come up with the ideal sugar metabolic enhance-
ment formula. You may have heard of the first two ingredients below from other sources, but you
probably can’t name the other five…and that’s where Barron’s unique research expertise comes in.
The first ingredient is fenugreek. In a recent study, researchers saw a 54% drop in urinary glucose
levels—the test doctors often use to identify diabetics. But to get the most benefit, patients had to eat a
huge amount of fenugreek––a pretty unpleasant undertaking. The stuff tastes terrible (it’s extremely
bitter), and comes with some pretty unpleasant side effects (like foul-smelling sweat and urine) when
you eat a lot of it. Now a new extract concentrates the active ingredient in fenugreek, making much
smaller doses possible and getting rid of those smelly side effects.
In India they call gymnema sylvestre, a traditional Ayurvedic diabetes remedy, “the sugar destroy-
er.” Here’s why: A protein in the plant makes you lose your craving for sugar and may actually prevent
you from digesting some of the sugar you DO eat. Plus, gymnema seems to regenerate pancreas cells,
allowing your body to produce more insulin. In an 18-month gymnema study, most test subjects were
able to reduce their medication… and some were able to get rid of drugs altogether. Best of all, no one
has reported any adverse side effects of gymnema. Not one.
Konjac mannan is a potent, rare Asian herb you’ve probably never heard of, but it’s been proven
effective in clinical trials. In fact, in a 65-day trial, 72 patients with adult-onset diabetes who took
konjac saw their fasting blood sugar levels drop an average of 51.8 percent and their levels after eating
drop 84.6 percent!
The nopal cactus (a.k.a. the prickly pear cactus) is just gaining recognition in the natural medicine
world. There’s not a lot of clinical research into its medicinal benefits yet, but several small studies sug-
gest that eating nopal leaves with a meal can help contain —even reduce — serum glucose levels.
Individuals with type 2 diabetes have experienced a 10 to 20 percent reduction in blood sugar levels
after eating nopal.
Banaba leaf extract has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes by
up to 30%. It also helped the people in the trial keep tighter control over glucose fluctuations. Best of
all, banaba appears to encourage weight loss…without any major dietary changes.
Bitter melon contains at least three components that act on blood sugar – and clinical trials con-
firm its effectiveness for managing glucose levels.
The final ingredient is a patented cinnamon extract called Cinnulin PF ™ which ramps up the over-
all effectiveness of the supplement. In fact, Cinnulin PF actually works to make the insulin receptor sites

on your individual body cells more receptive…and that means your body can use its own insulin more
Barron put all these ingredients together into a highly beneficial supplement he called Glucotor™ v.2.
Here are just some of the astounding results seen in six-week Phase I Clinical Trials conducted using
this formula :
➤ Blood sugar levels dropped by an average 54.4 points
➤ An average 52% improvement in blood sugar utilization and optimization, meaning
that participants’ bodies learned to handle sugar more efficiently
➤ Improved carbohydrate metabolism (meaning that patients’ metabolic systems han-
dled dietary carbs more effectively) by an average 39%
➤ An average weight loss of 5.5 pounds
This sugar metabolic enhancement formula, which can help control diabetes from the right angle,
is just one great example of how members benefit from being part of the Health Sciences Institute
(HSI) network. Thanks to our inside, confidential sources, we were able to follow the development and
testing process and bring this breakthrough to our members as soon as it became available. To learn

A Word of Caution: If you’re on prescription medications—and even if you aren’t—you need the
guidance of a qualified health professional before you try this remedy.
