“Anti-Sugar” with Chromium yeast, Ginseng Panax, Phaseolus vulgaris


  • Description
    • Chromium yeast is chromium enriched yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae).
    • Ginseng Panax (Asian or Red Ginseng) is found in North America and Eastern Asia typically in cooler climates. Ginseng is characterized by the presence of ginsenosides. The name derives from Chinese where the plant is named after its roots’ shape ressembling the legs of a person. Panax ginseng is different from American or Siberian ginseng.
    • Phaseolus vulgaris (Common bean) is an herbaceous annual plant grown worldwide for its edible fruit, either its dry seed or the unripe fruit, both of which are referred to as beans. The common bean is a highly variable species with a long history of cultivation.



  • Potential virtues
    • Chromium enriched yeast helps to normalize blood sugar increasing the action of insulin (Glucose Tolerance Factor). In addition, chromium plays an important role in the metabolisms of fat and carbohydrate. Insufficient dietary intake of chromium leads to signs and symptoms that are similar to those observed in diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. It used to treat type 2 diabetes and to contribute to weight loss.
    • Red Ginseng roots are used in folk medicine as aphrodisiac, stimulant, diabetes treatment, or as a cure for sexual dysfunction in men. Moreover, Panax ginseng is used as an “adaptogen” helping the organism adapting to physical and physiological stress and as a general tonic to improve well-being. It is also said to prevent from spontaneous cell proliferation.
    • Common beans are known for its diuretic and hypoglycaemic action. It is an excellent remedy against hydropsy, diseases concerning heart, kidney and bladder dysfunctions. It supports cleansing and is helpful in cases of uric acid accumulation. It can act as prevention against diabetes. It helps to eliminate sugars and lipids from the intestinal area thanks to its absorbing action and thus favours weight loss and water elimination. 


  • I typically prescribe “Anti-sugar” with the following objectives
    • To control type 2 diabetes that means non-insulin dependant
    • To regulate blood sugar
    • To reduce “bad” cholesterol
    • To relieve from fatigue


  • Recommended basic treatment
    • Take 2 capsules 3 times a day with a large glass of water before meals (morning, midday, evening)
    • Self-medication in the case of diabetes can cause serious health problems and any treatment must be monitored by a health care professional.
    • The use of chrome can cause mild gastrointestinal disorders. The effects of chrome could be added to those of drugs or plants whose action is hypoglycaemic. Taking chrome supplements with chrome rich plants (field horsetail, cascara sagrada) can cause long-term liver toxicity. Corticosteroids, calcium carbonate and antacids can reduce the ratio of chrome in the body. It is recommended to leave a gap of at least two hours between taking chrome supplements and zinc, calcium carbonate and antacids.
    • Red ginseng could interact with anticoagulants. Theoretically, ginseng could also interact with antipsychotic drugs, hypoglycaemias, central nervous system stimulants, replacement hormones and monoamine-oxidase inhibitors. Red Ginseng could exacerbate the effect of foods, plants or supplements with stimulating properties (eg coffee, tea, guarana, chocolate)
