Tri Sugar Shield 60 caps by Life Extension
Many aging individuals find themselves under assault from rising blood sugar levels. Despite a healthy diet and exercise, blood sugar levels can rise due to a number of factors including excess gluconeogenesis where by the liver produces glucose from protein. Another issue is the rapid conversion of any starch, including whole grains, into glucose. The result is that even health-conscious, active people can experience higher-than-desired blood sugar levels as they age.**
An all-natural, multi-pronged approach has been designed to support the natural balance of key glucose pathways. Tri Sugar Shield provides three plant-derived nutrients that—through their rich array of complementary mechanisms—afford an unrivaled level of optimal, broad-spectrum support for healthy glucose metabolism in aging individuals within normal range.**
Life Extension Tri Sugar Shield contains the following three nutrients:
Sorghum Bran Extract
Sorghum is a grass plant found in Southern Asia that helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, among those in the normal range, by modulating four different mechanisms:
- Balances the rate of sugar manufacture in the liver (gluconeogenesis).**
- Promotes insulin sensitivity.**
- Regulates PPAR-gamma, a metabolic thermostat controlling glucose metabolism.**
- Regulates the enzyme alpha-amylase, which in turn controls the release of sugar found in starch.**
Mulberry leaf extract
Mulberry leaf has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for centuries. Mulberry leaf extract targets three different mechanisms:
- Targets the alpha-glucosidase enzyme to regulate conversion of starch into glucose.**
- Supports glucose transporter GLUT4 that moves glucose out of the bloodstream and into muscle and liver cells.**
- Promotes insulin sensitivity.**
Phloridzin is a natural polyphenol found in various fruit trees. Phloridzin helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, among those in the normal range by:
- Targeting carrier protein SGLT1, in turn helping to block the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.**
- Targeting carrier protein SGLT2, in turn supporting glucose elimination via urine.**
By targeting all of these diverse glucose pathways, Life Extension Tri Sugar Shield delivers the widest possible support to help naturally stabilize already healthy glucose levels.**

Life Extension Foundation has one mission, and one mission only: to help you live a healthier, longer life.
In fact, we're at the forefront of medical research, constantly looking for ways to prolong youth, health, and life. And we've been at it for more than 34 years, investing more than $140 million to find therapies and technologies that could lead to lifesaving cures for the diseases of aging.
Did you know that we were the first to recommend low-dose aspirin therapy to protect against heart attack … CoQ10 for heart health … and the Omega-3s in fish oil to promote heart health?
Over 350 premium-quality formulations that are the gold standard of the industry. All are clinically validated and tested.
What is the Life Extension Foundation?
The Life Extension Foundation is one of the largest organizations dedicated to investigating every method of extending the healthy human life span. When seeking anti-aging therapies, health and nutrition, The Foundation has reported discoveries in the areas of atherosclerosis and stroke prevention, diabetes, prostate health, hormone replacement therapy, and other health concerns. The Life Extension Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization whose goal is to conquer the aging process within the next decade.
How old is the Life Extension Foundation?
The Life Extension Foundation was officially incorporated in 1980, but its founder has been involved in anti-aging research since the 1960s.
What scientific breakthroughs has the Life Extension Foundation made?
Research supported by The Life Extension Foundation has documented the value of antioxidants in extending life span and in protecting cells against ischemia (lack of blood flow). Ischemia is the leading cause of disability and death. Ischemia can be caused by the blockage of a coronary artery, which can lead to a heart attack, or a cerebral artery, which can lead to a stroke. Accident victims often die from ischemia. The Foundation supports a full time research facility that has broken all world records in protecting against ischemia-induced free radical damage.

What is the Foundation's track record in recommending Life Extension Therapies?
The Life Extension Foundation was the first organization to defy the FDA by promoting the use of antioxidant vitamins to maintain health. The Foundation was the first organization to promote the use of low dose aspirin to maintain cardiovascular health. The Foundation was the first organization to recommend against the use of iron in dietary supplements because of evidence that iron causes massive free radical damage contributing to the development of cancer, atherosclerosis and a host of other diseases. The Foundation was the first organization to inform Americans about the "miracle nutrient" coenzyme Q10, about the anti-cancer carotenoids lycopene, lutein, and xanthophyl, and about the most effective anti-aging therapy in the world, Melatonin. And the Foundation was the first organization to introduce Americans to European "smart drugs" like piracetam, centrophenoxine, and DHEA.
