GlucoScript supports healthy blood sugar and insulin sensitivity and is beneficial in healthy weight management.

The number of people with diabetes, obesity and blood sugar issues is steadily increasing worldwide and is sadly accompanied by a subsequent decrease in quality of life. Lifestyle and diet changes are obviously of the utmost importance, but additionally supplementing with targeted nutrients can further assist in balancing blood sugar levels and in reducing overall risk factors.

GlucoScript’s innovative formulation has been designed to assist in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, improve insulin sensitivity and to control sugar cravings.


  • Provides support for healthy glucose metabolism.
  • Promotes balanced blood sugar levels.
  • Assists in reduction of metabolic syndrome.
  • Supports healthy weight management programmes.
  • May reduce sugar cravings.
  • Improves insulin sensitivity.
  • Increases antioxidant capacity and decreases oxidative stress.

Featuring ten top ingredients

GlucoScript features ten of the most researched natural ingredients shown to safely and effectively improve glucose regulation. The support and balance of healthy glucose metabolism is achieved by both the individual and synergistic combination of these well researched herbals.

Bitter melon appears to decrease hepatic gluconeogenesis, increase hepatic glycogen synthesis, increase pancreatic insulin secretion and increase peripheral glucose oxidation.

Gymnema sylvestre has been increased in the new formulation due to its effectiveness in lowering blood glucose. This is due to the gymnemic acid content which seems to inhibit the absorption of glucose and may be responsible for stimulating the beta cells that are located within the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas, which are responsible for the production and secretion of insulin.

Goat’s rue has blood sugar lowering activity due to its guanidine content which may have a dose-dependent inhibition of transport and uptake of methyl glucose. An interesting fact is that goat’s rue is the botanical source for the life extension drug metformin (GlucoPhage).

Minerals and vitamins that are an essential part of the normal blood glucose balancing process are also included.

Cinnamon improves insulin’s function due to the content of polyphenolic polymers such as hydroxychalcone which seems to potentiate the action of insulin. These polymers may also increase phosphorylation of the insulin receptor which increases the receptor’s sensitivity to insulin. Cinnamon also helps reduce the rate of gastric emptying and decreases the rise in blood sugar after eating.

Chromium plays an essential role in normal carbohydrate metabolism and glucose tolerance. It supports insulin receptor formation, insulin receptor phosphorylation, and insulin binding.

Vanadium supplementation is key as it may increase the sensitivity of glucose and insulin receptors.

The more bioavailable pyridoxine (P5P) improves the body’s utilisation of glucose and protects against the development of diabetic neuropathy. Most diabetes mellitus patients are found to be deficient in vitamin B6.

Let's not forget the importance of antioxidants!
Alpha lipoic acid has now been included for its benefits as a “universal antioxidant” which is essential for protecting the blood vessels from free radicals caused by excess blood sugar.

Quercetin has a dual action as potent antioxidant while also being shown to improve glucose metabolism and reduce gluconeogenesis. Quercetin also enhances insulin secretion and protects the beta cells of the pancreas against free radical damage.

NAC is a potent antioxidant, helping to prevent the free radical-induced destruction of beta cells in the islets of Langerhans in diabetes mellitus type 2 patients. NAC may also aid in the reduction of diabetic neuropathy in diabetes mellitus patients.

GlucoScript by Medford provides optimal doses of all the vital nutrients needed for achieving the best results in pursuit of healthy blood sugar balance.

Who can benefit from taking GlucoScript?
Who can benefit from taking GlucoScript?
GlucoScript is designed to help people who are struggling to maintain a healthy blood sugar balance, lower elevated insulin levels, curb carbohydrate cravings, and manage a healthy body weight. It's an ideal supplement for those dealing with PCOS, pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, or metabolic syndrome.
Can I take GlucoScript when I’m on diabetic medication?
Because GlucoScript supports healthy blood sugar and diabetic medication can lower blood sugar, there is a concern that the blood sugar may drop too low if the two are combined. GlucoScript should therefore only be taken under the supervision of your health care provider if you are on medication.
Can I replace my diabetic medication with GlucoScript?
No. Do not stop taking your chronic prescription medication without consulting your health care provider.
Could GlucoScript help me lose weight?
Taking GlucoScript while following a healthy diet and exercise programme can assist with weight loss thanks to its positive effects on blood sugar regulation and appetite management.
Does GlucoScript help with appetite control?
Yes. GlucoScript balances blood sugar levels which can assist in reducing carbohydrate cravings and supporting healthy energy levels.
Do I need to supplement with additional Chromium while taking GlucoScript?
No, it should not be necessary. If you follow the recommended dosage of one capsule three times a day, you will achieve an adequate daily intake of chromium for blood sugar balance.
How do I know if I could have insulin resistance?
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), a waist circumference of more than 80 cm in females, and more than 94 cm in males, is an indication that you may be suffering from insulin resistance.
