I just started as I have spoken to my doctor about it. Since GNC started sellling it they cannot keep enough in stock as it is selling faster than they can keep it on the shelves. This compound has been discovered by two scientists in FL with a good success rate in diabetes taking it. I have only started a week ago and initially when I tested I had a 20 unit drop and it has stayed there so far. My doctor said when I get tested in 3 months they can tell if there is a significant change. My doctor has a few other diabetic patients taking it and so far it has been a possitive change in lower their sugar, but said it may work for some and not for others so I am trying it to see if this is going to work for me.

I have been taking GC7x for 5 months now and the results have been great. My FG is now under 130. My A1C dropped from 7.8 to 5.4. It controls my blood sugar with no side effects. Best of all it makes me feel great!

Looked into other blood glucose control supplements but GC7x is the only one that has been proven in clinical trials. This Emulin formula is even patented. I take it twice a day and it really has helped get my blood sugar numbers in line. I'm also feeling better and have more energy. Even noticing the weight is coming down a little each week. Like the website, too - Tells you all kinds of interesting stuff about the research. You can even see a video of the inventor explaining how it works. I'm glad I tried it!

Hi there! I haven't taken Emulin, but I have taken a few supplements in my time. Nature Made Diabetic Pack, Completia for Diabetics and Glucerna. They were all ok, but now I've been on a supplement called CinnaLife. I started on it about 5 months ago and I have to say I'm super happy. My former A1C of 6.2 is now 5.9 and I've lost about 8 lbs since then. Something I loved was that they listed all their ingredients and DV% on their site which made me feel a lot more comfortable about taking it. I printed it and took it to my endo who said it seemed great because of specific ingredients it had that focused on specific problems like the pain in my feet and also my lack of energy. I did look into Emulin back when I was looking for a new supplement but CinnaLife was less expensive and I looked up the developer and it made me feel better that a board certified doctor of pharmacy actually made it and was taking it as well. I email them questions and they reply right away and so far everything has checked out. Hope I helped :)

I am type 1 diabetic and I've taken insulin since age 9. I made a mistake of seeing a doctor who put me on Medformin. I quickly gained 20 lbs and my diabetes fell out of control which landed me in the ER. Since, I dropped Medformin and the doctor. I truly believe the medical system is corrupt and is not in my best interest. I am better off self medicating which I have been well off doing for the past 50 years.

I know several people who have been taking this GC7x for awhile and it is really helping them. Just started taking GC7x for myself about a month ago. Found lots of great info on website I bought direct on this site. Blood sugar levels are stabalizing. And I am noticing another positive difference. This GC7x Surge seems to make me feel better overall and more energetic. Oh and customer service was really helpful, too. Take a look at Hope this helps.

Do I continue taking my other diabetes meds and insulin?

Howdy ELC
Before you start taking anything like that it would be wise to talk to your Dr to clarify instructions as to what to do in this case.

Reading through the posts in this discussion it would seem that you probably should continue with your diabetes meds as most of the replies indicate that this substance does little to nothing for diabetes.

You might do better by following a low carb, high protein eating plan and skip the added expense of this prroduct.

God's best to you in 2015

After further research, Dr. Charles L. Capps is not a Ph. D. He has done work at the University of Missouri, but only as an undergraduate. There are no indications of any doctoral work done at an accredited university. He is in fact correct as far as the FDA concerns. The FDA could take years of research before anything is released and millions of dollars; that's just how they work. However, Emulin can be labeled as a dietary supplement to give it the ability to become marketable without FDA approval, which many products are now doing. This helps with gaining revenue to clear future waivers for the FDA. His point of using a diet and taking Metformin is just common sense. All diabetics know some diabetes can be controlled with diet, and that is the major factor in most treatments… watching what one eats.

I am a Ph.D. scientist and am actively involved with glucose control. Emulin is another newly touted "cure." It contains three flavenoids that purport to be effective. None of the claims by the company have been cited to the FDA or NIH. All the claims cite that emulin in conjunction with diet control and exercise and Metformin will cause a 27% decrease in blood glucose levels. As a scientist and diabetic, I am appalled that anyone with common sense would attach their beliefs to emulin. Dr. Charles L. Capps

I guess common sense eludes us when we can pop a pill that will work a miracle. I am over that vision of grandure and am back into reality. I tried it after checking with my physician and it did nothing possitive for me. I do wonder why it is though that so many have claimed success with it.

jayabee52 2012-08-17 16:21:49 -0500 Report

perhaps placebo effect? OR those are fabricated claims for the motive of selling to folks and making money however they can?

jayabee52 2012-08-16 19:24:33 -0500 Report

Howdy Dr Charles!

Gee, to me it seems that the emulin is not needed if someone does the Metformin,, diet control, exercise. If it by itself emulin will cause a 25% THEN it might be valuable as a diabetes lowering medication.

I am a borderline diabetic, controlled with diet. I purchased the GC7X. On a Saturday, I had one dose at breakfast and one at lunch. I became light headed with some slight dizziness, so I stopped taking it. I got on the scale on Monday and had gained nearly 8 lbs. It has been one month and I can't seem to shake the added weight. Can you help me with what might be going on

drjoe 2011-05-25 12:42:09 -0500 Report

I am one of the researchers who discovered Emulin, the active ingredient in GC7X. I have seen questions here regarding T1s and T2s. I am glad to answer any questions here or PM

Thank you. I am concerned about side effects & wondered if you are aware of any?

drjoe 2011-05-31 10:52:45 -0500 Report

There are 3 active ingredients in Emulin. Each one has a long history of use with no known side effects, if used as indicated. Our formula and patent cover the unique blend of the 3 components. During the human clinical, conducted by Cetero Research, there were no indicated side effects. The components of Emulin were chosen partly because they are gut friendly.

So it is purely coincidental that I have been bothered with heartburn since I have been taking it? Thank you

drjoe 2011-06-01 20:40:59 -0500 Report

I heard today from a client with IBS that the condition was exacerbated if taking GC7X on an empty stomach. When taking with food, no problem. Maybe this is a clue for you

Sly Kitty 2011-06-02 09:36:48 -0500 Report

I do take this with food as I do with most of the meds I take. I just had not experienced heartburn until I started taking this. Thank you

drjoe 2011-05-31 16:36:26 -0500 Report

I will only give you the facts, not my opinion. There has never been a reported case associated with Emulin, or any digestive issues. If you open the capses and take in "straight", it has irritated throats

I am no longer taking it as I didn't notice it did anything for me. Now that I have been off it for a few days my BS is down to normal and I no longer have heartburn. I was only on it for a month, but don't feel that it helped me enough to warrant spending nearly $50 a bottle for it. I just recently got laid off from my job after 17 yrs there and as I am very close to 65 I am not going to be throwing money away on things that just aren't working for me. I guess you don't know if this works for you unless you try it for yourself. Thank you.

drjoe 2011-06-21 12:27:05 -0500 Report

That is great that your BS is down to normal. You have enough to worry about. I am sorry about you being laid off and these are tight times. I have been in that position before on more than one occassion.

I'd be interested to know if it really helps drops your BG numbers, too. Please keep us posted!

Me too; time will tell, but I will let you know how it is working for me. I am just so happy I am not having (so far) any negative side effects. Thank you for your comment.

dietcherry 2011-05-18 23:04:14 -0500 Report

That sounds interesting! I wonder if it can do anything for T1's. We usually dont/cant benefit when it comes to supplements. Pleas keep us posted on your progress and thanks for sharing!

When I read the article in our local newspaper it just said this compound was developed for diabetes and did not specify T1 or T2. All I know is that it lowers blood sugar. I would always ask my physician before I took anything altho not all physicians are up on all suppliments available. As this compound was developed locally by local scientists and made our paper is why I am guessing my physician had even heard about it as other patients had brought it to the doctor's attention. I don't feel I can say at this point other than my initial drop in blood sugar what benefits it will provide for me. Thank you for your comment and I sure will keep posting my results. You can go on line and read about this for yourself or call your local GNC.

jayabee52 2012-08-16 19:18:50 -0500 Report

Well the media in general does not know much about diabetes so they seem to know nothing about the difference between type 1 and 2.
