SweetBalance is a unique formula developed and by H. Herb Plant Extract Laboratories, Israel. This product is approved by the Israeli ministry of health, certified Kosher by Rabi Tzfania Drori from Kiryat Shmona, Israel and produced by GMP, HACCP and ISO 9001 standards.
What does the formula SweetBalance® contain?
Each capsule of SweetBalance (500 mg) consists of dried concentrated extracts of fenugreek (deodorized), turmeric, cinnamon, thyme and black pepper. One capsule contains active ingredients equivalent to 21 teaspoons of the minced dried plant.
Our laboratory expert team developed special processes for extracting, concentrating and drying herbs, and the result is a unique and very efficient formula which helps balance blood glucose levels and reduce the blood sugar fluctuations. Thanks to the highly concentrated active components in the formula, one capsule per day is sufficient.
SweetBalance® is designed for:
- People who have diabetes mellitus type 2, but don't inject insulin
- People with impaired glucose tolerance
Is the fenugreek extract indeed deodorized?
The strong odor secreted from the body due to regular use of fenugreek deters people from using it. In order to overcome this problem, our R&D team developed a special process for separating and concentrating the saponin, the active ingredient in the fenugreek. The final extract is highly concentrated yet lacks the strong typical odor. The fenugreek extract in the formula SweetBalance contains also 4-hydroxyisoleucine, an amino acid derivative that assists the pancreas in production of insulin. It has a direct, stimulating effect on insulin production and reducing overall blood glucose levels.
When shall I see and feel the results?
Herbs, as opposed to chemicals, work slowly. They start their influence immediately, but results are seen only after three months of daily use. After three to four months we recommend you ask your physician for an HgA1C test – this test shows the average blood sugar level during the last three months.
The herbal extracts in SweetBalance
Fenugreek seeds are known for their medicinal properties for thousands of years in ayurvedic, Chinese, Arabian and Greek medicine.
The fenugreek seeds extract contains an amino acid derivative called 4 hydroxyisoleucine which was found to lower serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and to help maintain normal sugar levels in diabetes mellitus. 4-Hydroxyisoleucine increases glucose-induced insulin release: the more glucose concentration was increased, the more insulin response was amplified.

The use of cinnamon dates back as long ago as 4,000 years. Cinnamon contains polyphenols which help balance blood sugar level in diabetes mellitus. A research led by Dr. Richard Anderson, a diabetes expert from the United States Department of Agriculture showed that MHCP (methylhydroxychalcone polymer), a water-soluble polyphenol compound in cinnamon, mimicked insulin's activity and helped drive glucose into the cells. After testing it in several clinical trials, he discovered that not only cinnamon could lower glucose, but it appeared to lower blood levels of fats and “bad” cholesterol and neutralized free radicals.. Dr. Anderson said “There were significant decreases in fasting serum glucose by 18 to 29%, lowered triglycerides by 23 to 30%, lowered total cholesterol by 12 to 26% and LDL cholesterol by 7 to 27%.” A very interesting observation made by Dr. Anderson and his team of scientists took place after the clinical trial had ended. It appears that the health benefits of cinnamon lasted for at least 20 days after people stopped taking it. Another interesting observation is that saliva's enzymes can apparently reduce the active components in cinnamon, therefore it is better to take it in capsule form. The capsule bypasses the saliva in the mouth on its way to the stomach. Stomach acid deactivates the saliva enzymes, so taking the cinnamon in capsules should be more effective.
Curcumin, the active component in Turmeric's rhizome, is one of the most studied and researched herbal extracts nowadays. In an article  written by Prof Aggarwal and Harikumar, the two scientists conclude that curcumin plays an important role in attenuating diabetes and diabetes-associated symptoms. Moreover, its anti inflammatory and anti oxidant activities are very important for diabetics, who suffer quite often from inflammations associated with the disease. A research published in the journal Diabetes Care at 2012, by the American Diabetes Association, found that people with pre-diabetes who took capsules containing curcumin were less likely to go on to develop type 2 diabetes.
Inflammation-associated cardiovascular conditions such as atherosclerosis are common in diabetes patients. The anti-inflammation effect of curcumin might be beneficial to prevent such condition in these patients
A 6-month curcumin research in type 2 diabetic population lowered the atherosclerosis risks. In addition, the extract helped to improve relevant metabolic profiles in this high-risk population. J Nutr Biochem. 2014 Feb;25(2):144-50
Thyme is an antiseptic herb, highly recommended for treating cold, sinusitis and the flu.
The active compound extracted from black pepper is called piperine. Piperine is mainly antiseptic in nature, but a research conducted in Japan several years ago has shown another aspect of it: piperine enhances curcumin's bioavailability by 2000% as well as other herbal extracts.
Glucuronidation is part of the metabolism process in our body. During this process substances become water soluble in order to facilitate their excretion from the body.
The bioavailability of Curcumin is very low, meaning it is excreted from the body very quickly. Piperine inhibits the Glucuronidation of curcumin, thus allowing curcumin more time in the body to leave its beneficial marks.
Thanks to the piperine, the herbal extracts of the formula are better absorbed in the intestine, thus allowing them to clean the liver and the blood vessels from toxins and the result is, of course, a better blood circulation.
- 1 capsule per day
