How are Glucose Tolerance and Glucose Balance different?

Both Beta Fast Glucose Tolerance and Glucose Balance are extended-release supplements that help promote healthy blood sugar levels. However, the active ingredients in these two products are slightly different. Glucose Tolerance contains two major active ingredients: 300 mg. of gymnema and 200 mcg. of chromium. It also contains 100 mg. of Vitamin C. The chromium in this supplement, which is an essential trace mineral, works to allow glucose into cells. The glucose can then be metabolized into fuel. Diabetic individuals often have chromium deficiencies, so this product is ideal for them. Glucose Balance has only one active ingredient: 400 mg. of gymnema. It does not contain chromium. If you are considered insulin-resistant (as diagnosed by a doctor) Glucose Balance might be helpful.
