Hello Everyone, has anyone ever heard of Glucocil? And if so, have you tried it, and if so did you get any results? It is suppose to help keep your BS from spiking, I believe.

I just signed here after seeing information on glucocil. Im thinking of trying it too. I'm type 2 for 2 years and on Metformin. Last A1C was 7.1 Having a hard time dealing with it because I have never noticed any symptoms and never gone low so I do wellfor awhile then just eat so thought about other methods

I like to see no fillers, organic, no titanium dioxide.. site does not let you see all ingredients. but all of these are something you should take: MY FEAR IS THE DOSAGE… I TAKE 20 PILLS TO GET ALL THIS.

hahah… you sound like me months back. I think i was taking 20 something pills a day not counting my prescrip meds :( it was horrible, plus I have terrible gag reflux (sorry TMI?) lol. thats one of the reasons why I was looking for a multivitamin/supplement that had everything in one that I could take once a day and be done with it. I'm super lazy too so managing sooo much was an inconvenience for me. take a look at the supplement panel on their site… They listed EVERYTHING on it! let me know what you think? you seem to be in the know of things, maybe you'll have good feedback on what i'm taking :O

I am curious about this as well. Was diagnosed a type 2 approximately 10 years ago. Taking oral meds until recently when my oral meds caused me to have pancreatitis. I'm a patient at MD Anderson for an unrelated matter (polycythemia), but recently learned that my oral diabetic meds had the side effect of giving me pancreatitis. Currently on one daily shot of insulin (20 i.u) after being taken off all oral meds. Looking for alternatives. I exercise, ride bike, and try to eat as healthy as possible. Blood sugars (fasting) are varying from 178, to the hightest yesterday of 289. Wondering if the glucocil really works. Thanks for any ideas, replies, comments.

I too am new to this site and just ordered a bottle of Greek olive oil from and my husband is getting a bottle of cinnamon + chromium for me thanks to your posts. My last a1c was good at 6.5 but for some reason my triglycerides jumped to 437 from 213 9 mos ago. The other lipids are almost normal, I don't know what happened! Also my bun is 35, up from 19, and microalbumin 115, up from 7.1. I was a vegetarian for 5 years until I stopped eating grains/gluten 6 months ago, now I've added organic chicken just to have something to eat besides legumes, eggs, vegs, berries, nuts & seeds. I am very concerned about my kidneys, have appt with a new Dr. Tuesday, he's an integrative holistic M.D.. hope he'll be helpful. My previous 3 Dr's were old school. I live in a remote rural area and don't have a lot of choices. Got lucky when the new doc moved here recently and this blog. Anyone have any thoughts on my kidney's? TriG's?

Anonymous, It's because you are getting a stronger dosage of the same ingredient from two of them instead of one. They don't have their dosage levels high enough for each product individually to be effective. Combine them and up the dosage and you get a better result.

Hello, from what I have been reading Glucocil appears to work for individuals who have high spiking.
I have been reading the post here and I am interested in the Greek herbs. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with Type 2. It took over a year to get control my B/S spiking. In the last 6 months I have started on the Blood Sugar Solutions plan and moved on to the Paleo plan. I do Organic and grass fed as much as possible, but then it is FDA labeling. Since I have mostly controlled my B/S spiking I have lost over 20 lbs. Still need to lose more so I am intersted in the Greek supplements.

Still getting readings from 180 - 225 with late afternoon spikes up in low to mid 300s. c1a was 8.5 Have been taking cinnamon for awhile, even before diabetes diagnosis, for my heart. No side effects noted but must not be helping BG with these numbers.

Hello Militarymom, I have just started (day 3) on Glucocil. I don't have any readinds to post at this time. I subscribed to the offer seen on FB to get the 15 day trial for $5. I see some have good results and some don't.I currently take Metformin, Januviua and Insulin. Like a lot of diabetics I'm not the best patient and don't always eat the right foods or stay current on my meds. Diabeties runs in my family. My sister has an advanced case and is now on dialysis 3 days a week due to kidney failure. I don't want to get to that point. Hope this helps me get in the mindset to take control of my disease. I get discouraged and don't stick with the plan when my readings are high.

I have been taking Glucocil for alittle over two months; my fasting sugars have gone from the 250's to below 200. My insulins had been adjusted with little affect. Since starting glucocil i average from 113-190…which for me is amazing…In the year and 1/2 that i have been diabetic my sugars had never been below 200. My A1C ;has gone from 11.5 to 9.3 after only 2 weeks of Glucocil. I have not lost weight, actually I have gained weight :( but I am so happy with Glucocil and what it has done for my fasting sugars. I will continue to take Glucocil and see if it continues to help my sugars.

I have type two. Doc kept upping insulin, I kept gaining and sugar never got under control. I discovered two supplements. Glycosolve and Glucocil. I take them both with meals and it is a miracle. I still need my meds but I don't take as much insulin because my sugar will go too low especially if I excercise. But now I can eat and know that my sugar isn't going to spike. I'm enjoying life again. A swear by these products however I think they work synergistically. Each one helps a little but together - it works. I have never been able to control a1c until now. Highly recommend and I feel great !

Hi Macklebee1,
I went off Crestor and tried red yeast rice. My Dr was not happy I did this, my Cholesterol without taking anything was 230 and with crestor it came down to 160. With just taking 2 tablets in the morning and two at night, my cholesterol was 158 with my LDL 93. I bought it at costco (brand, Weider) I found this works great. I have other people at work and friends taking it and they are normal without taking and statins. Dr's do not tell you that Statins can cause you to become a diabetic. Good luck, hope this works for you

Thank you very very much for your input Freebird370. I'm very interested in your findings with use of the olive oil as I understand that only true olive oil has real benefits. I want to know what oil here in the US falls into that category because most olive oil on the shelves here is bad already. Coconut oil seems to be more stable in storage. I've had type 1 diabetes for 45 years. I am now 59. I'm always experimenting trying to find the right supplements. Like you, Chromium works wonders but I take it along with extra magnesium and a little extra potassium. Not good to over-do potassium. Extra magnesium is good for everyone. Selenium is good as well. Diabetics are typically mineral deficient. Maybe that Fresh oilive oil has minerals in it. You can email me small If you have any more discoveries or info I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Many Thanks

Freebird370 2014-05-23 15:41:15 -0500 Report

magnetman, be careful with the chromium. 1000mcg daily you are OK. Chromium can wipe out your liver if you take to much. They have tested at 1200mcg daily and it was considered safe. I say 1000mcg because you can get additional chromium from what you eat. So I allow for that.

There is a Greek in PA. from here in Kalamata that sells Kalamata olive oil. I'll email you his number. When you taste the oil you'll understand what I'm talking about regarding quality. You'll never buy olive oil in an American supermarket again. This stuff really is pure virgin organic olive oil. All the food additives we have in the U.S. are illegal in Greece.

Hi paranoid,

Glucocil worked for me. It did lower by BS level along with proper exercise and diet.

I wouldn't believe anything the FDA says. They are paid off by the Pharma who make millions prescribing drugs many of which kill people. Glucocil is a perceived threat by the Pharma so they went after them.

I have type 2 diabetes. It runs in my family and was the cause of death of my mother. I am a former athlete and keep myself in excellent shape. At the time the Type 2 was discovered I was swimming a 1/2 mile each day along with running 30 flights of stairs, and weight training 5 days a week. I'm 62 years old and people think I'm in my 40s and shocked when I tell them I'm 62. My point is you can be in great shape, eat a good diet, and still contract diabetes. Especially in the U.S.

I did a lot of research on type 2 diabetes and have read where doctors claim it can be reversed by eating a strict diet. I believe they are right.

I moved to Greece a month and a half ago. I had read where olive oil was good for type 2 diabetes. I started using olive oil while in the U.S. after I discovered I had diabetes. However, U.S. olive oil is garbage olive oil as compared to Greek olive oil. I'm in Kalamata, Greece home of Kalamata olives and considered the worlds best olive oil. Many Italian olive oil companies buy their olive oil from Kalamata, Greece then stick an Italian label on the product they bought and sell it.

When I first arrived in Greece, I started using their olive oil at each meal. I'd soak my bread in it. I know what you are thinking regarding bread. Within 48 hours of doing this I was waking up with BS levels between 104 to 86. In the U.S. with good diet and exercise it was 132 to 138.

Two hours before writing this comment I had ice cream. I've been able to eat ice cream every day and have normal BS readings. I'm going to continue my experiment for a couple more weeks and then contact my doctor friends in the U.S. about my experience.

I'm not a doctor, but I am a scientist (aerospace engineer). There is something going on with the diet here in Greece. There is an island called Ikaria here in Greece where people live on the average 10 years longer and can remain active in their 90s. Look it up.

Right now, no doctor doing any test for diabetes could detect I have it. It is my belief I am reversing my type 2 diabetes with my Greek diet. You won't be able to do this with U.S. olive oil or a U.S. diet as there are just to many chemicals they allow in their food. Chemicals that are illegal in Greece to be added to food. Chemicals the FDA says are safe but are illegal in many European countries.

I'll keep you posted. By the way, cinnamon and chromium supplements also have worked for me. I have now quit taking them because I don't need them now.

Freebird370, I would love to be added to your email list too. I have tried everything my doctors have told me to do and nothing is bringing down my bs and my weight keeps going up.

Any other suggestions for someone who needs help but is on an extremely tight budget? Thanks in advance!

Freebird370 2014-05-23 15:02:43 -0500 Report

Yes, as I posted previously olive oil is an anti-inflammatory. Diabetes as you know is an inflammation. I also have something else I will share in a minute. I was a scientist (rocket) but not in the biological field. However, I always had an open mind and believed anything was possible until science proved it wrong. I have very good friends that are doctors and they have been amazed at my transformation regarding my Type 2 diabetes. I am very disturbed just how close minded American medicine is. Diabetes has been treated in India successfully with all natural substances for centuries. I sent freelance1 my b/s readings taken every 3 hours for one day. Night to morning fasting was 12 hours not 8 hours. 7:54am 105, 11:28am 106, 3:48pm 1 1/2 hour after eating-118, 6:19pm 85, 10:36pm 89,
7:47am next morning 98. I have come up with a formula after 3 years of work that uses all natural products and is getting the same results with friends of mine here in Greece with their Type 2 diabetes. I am using gymnema sylvestre FROM INDIA not the U.S. grown gymnema sylvestre. Bitter Gouard (mellon), Jambolan, cinnamon, fenugreek, olive leaf, bilberry, and other ingredients. The trick was getting the proper dosage of each ingredient. As an example, I am taking 2000mg per day of gymnema sylvestre. The only ingredient you can OD on is the chromium. The rest of the ingredients you can take as much as you want with no side effects.
Glucocil doesn't work any where near what my formula does because even though Glucocil uses gymnema sylvestre (American) there is not enough dosage of gymnema in Glucocil to be effective. Glucocil worked for me, and when I say worked for me it did lower my b/s somewhat. However, it was not dramatic, and no where near the b/s reading i Have now.
My mother died of Type 2 diabetes. It was the medication they gave here that finally wiped out her kidneys and liver. The FDA doesn't want to talk about that. The FDA recently had another warning on a diabetic product.
The FDA also claims olive leaf extract has not been proven to lower b/s levels. Yet the FDA warns diabetics on medication not to take olive leaf extract because it can lower your b/s to much. So the FDA it appears contradicts itself and unofficially says olive leaf extract lowers b/s. I refer to the FDA as educated idiots.
I am in the process of manufacturing this formula I developed. Diabetes basically forces people to eat healthy. So if someone is going to hang out a Burger King or McDonalds and eat fried foods their prescribed medication nor my formula is going to help them one bit. However, the reading I gave you above I had eaten high carb (pasta, BREAD) for those tests. I also ate fruit and honey. The readings are from all carb meals I ate that day. As you can see my b/s stayed consistent.
The FDA says tests have shown that chromium has not been proven to lower b/s levels. Then they say they tested so many patients giving them 500 mcg of chromium per day and it did not lower b/s. They are correct 500 mcg will do nothing. But increase the dosage to 1000 mcg which is a safe dosage and you will see the chromium lower b/s. The FDA seems to set these tests up to fail.

I saw your response in my email. I'm doing fine, thank you for asking, and my B/S couldn't be better. The olive oil has been working. I started back on cinnamon not because anything happened to my B/S but it is a healthy B/S natural product with no side affects. For the same reason I added olive leaf extract and gymnema sylvestre. Again, I added these as a B/S aide and my B/S lowered even more and is now between 84 and 95 during the day. However, the gymnema sylvestre must come from India. Forget the crap they claim they grow in the U.S..

I've read some of the posts on Glucocil. All I can say is it did work for me and lowered my B/S somewhat. However, it won't matter what you take including prescription meds if you load up on fried foods, simple carbs, etc..

What type 2 diabetes really does is it forces you to eat healthy and get proper exercise. If you are overweight, you better lose it. You don't have to kill yourself trying to burn off the fat. Try weight training with very light weights with high repetitions. Start out slow. Walking is very good.

Diabetes is normally the kiss of death for a pilot's license. I still have mine. My doctor friends are in shock. Especially when my B/S was over 600 when I lost my vision for 3 days. At first they were very skeptical. Now they're driving me crazy with questions. Type 1 diabetes is a different animal although here the herbal treatment does help lower their med doses. I'm convinced Type 2 can be reversed in respect to normal B/S numbers.

Since I'm retired, this diabetes thing has become my passion. I had plenty of chemistry in college but I'm back in college online not to obtain my PHD, but to see the new information out there.

I'm using myself as a guinea pig purposely raising my blood sugar to see what natural herb will bring my B/S down quickly. I just discovered something with a food that is loaded with herbs here in Greece that lowers my B/S quickly and it contains pasta which is really amazing. American pasta would send my B/S through the roof. I'll keep you posted

How are you dosing the cinamon, and concerning the gummena sylvestre how are you taking that. I read earlier that you dab bread in the olive oil before meals, somewhat like glucocil directions before a meal.

For the time being go to Walmart. They have cinnamon plus chromium capsules made under the name of Spring Valley which are really made by Natures Bounty. They call the dosage 2000mgs. However, they are really 1000mg capsules and you take two of them. They have 999.8mg of cinnamon and 200mcg of chromium in each 1000mg capsule. The direction say take 2 daily. That is the wrong dosage for diabetics.
I take 5 daily. That gives me a dosage of 5 grams of cinnamon and 1000mcg of chromium.

My research has stated that diabetics SHOULD take 5 to 6 grams of cinnamon per day to be effective. Cinnamon is basically harmless unless you go crazy.

Chromium cam be harmful to the liver and kidneys if you over do it. My research has shown that 1000mcg of chromium is very safe. That is 1000micro grams NOT 1000milligrams.

If you are on diabetic medication take it slow. Ask your doctor and start out with one capsule check your B/S after an hour. These herbal remedies can and will magnify the effects of prescribed medication. So you don't want your B/S dropping to low.

I'm working right now on an herbal formula with a chemist and pharmacist that will really works and is cheap for diabetics. I'm the guinea pig.

So for now try the Walmart brand. Don't buy them at GNC (Natures Bounty) as they are more expensive. The Walmart price is between $9.00 and $12.00 and you get 180 capsules.

Tony, I live in Kalamata and I know this guy and trust him. They play to many games with labels in the U.S.. The label could read Kalamata but the oil comes from California. Or another trick they play is they add 10% Kalamata oil and the rest is domestic oil. I know the guy in PA. buys direct from Kalamata. Even Italy wholsalers come to Kalamata and buy the oil then re-label it Italian olive oil. The best olive oil in the world comes from Kalamata and Crete Greece.

Thanks for the link. I have ordered it. I used to use greek olive oil years ago, but decided I did not like the heaviness of it. But that was homemade. I hope this product is lighter in taste.

About how long do the other people think they will have a formula in which you are testing, and how will you let us know that your product in on the market

I am a nurse and last year my A1c was 6.3, I started glucocil right away, and changed my diet to non fried foods, no sodas, if I eat vegetables, usually its plan no butter or anything on them, I use ezcal bread. I never had the lab rechecked, but will in the next month, and that's why I'm so interested with your experience in the event I would find that glucocil didn't work, but what I'm reading about glucocil it did work for most people from this web site.

Very interesting information. Please keep us posted on your findings. I was diagnosed type1 2 years ago. before this I was oblivious when it came to proper nutrition and the danger of eating just about anything thing offered on the grocers shelves.
Since my diagnosis I have been educating myself and in doing so I have become more aware of what is being allowed by our government.
I am so disheartened with the U.S. food supply. Between Monsanto, the FDA and big pharma it's nothing short of frightening. I try very hard to eat as clean a diet as I can. But alas it seems near impossible to truly be able to do that in this country. :-(

There is a Greek/ American company here in Greece that has all natural products for diabetes. I've had very good luck with their products and they are supposed to be going online soon from what I've been told. Their products are much less expensive than Glucocil and much more effective.

I'm in Kalamata, Greece. You've heard of Kalamata olives I'm sure. The best olive oil in the world comes from Kalamata and Crete.

They make olive leaf extract here. Not anything like in the states. Read up on olive leaf extract. Even the FDA warns people on diabetes medication to only take olive leaf extract under the supervision of a physician because it may lower your B/S to much. That's basically an admission by the FDA that olive leaf extract works lowering B/S. However, since the product is cheap, you'll never see a big pharma company produce the stuff as there isn't enough money in it for them because they can't patent olive leaf extract.
