General Description

GlucoMedix is a combination of two extracts: Samento, produced from Uncaria tomentosa, and Stevia, produced from Stevia rebaudiana; both perennial plants from South America.  Samento is made from the Uncaria tomentosa chemotype that does not contain Tetracyclic Oxindole Alkaloids (TOAs), a group of chemical antagonists that act upon the central nervous system and can greatly inhibit the positive effect of the Pentacyclic Oxindole Alkaloids (POAs). The POAs primarily affect the immune cells responsible for nonspecific and cellular immunity and demonstrate powerful immune system modulating properties. Nutramedix Stevia uses the entirety of the plant during the extraction process as opposed to using just the leaves in the extraction process as seen an many other Stevia extracts. This extraction process allows for Nutramedix stevia to be more effective than doxycycline in eliminating Borrelia burgdorferi, in all morphologic forms. The proprietary blend of Samento and Avea found in GlucoMedix has been shown to provide stronger effects than simply combining the products Samento and Stevia.
