Blood Sugar Balance is a simple formula that works. Most of the
formulas in the RidgeCrest Herbals brand are complex and have a wide
range of ingredients. In the case of Blood Sugar Balance we adopted a
formula from ancient Chinese medicinal wisdom and made only one simple
change, based on modern knowledge of herbs, to make it both less
expensive and more effective. There are only five ingredients in Blood
Sugar Balance, and they work together very powerfully to help maintain
balanced blood sugar levels.
White Tiger Decoction (bai hu tang) is a white powder that has
been known in Traditional Chinese Medicine for nearly two thousand
years, and has long been used to treat symptoms that we now
associate with blood sugar regulation. The basic formula includes 4
ingredients: gypsum, anemarrhena root, licorice root, and rice. To
these, the ancients occasionally added ginseng, an herb of nearly
mythical qualities but traditionally very expensive and difficult to
Today, we know a little more about the role of these ingredients, but
some of their actions have yet to be fully understood. Gypsum is
calcium sulfate, and calcium helps to stabilize blood sugar. It may
also help prevent both insulin resistance and obesity. Anemarrhena
root is known to help regulate blood sugar levels and fortify the
pancreas. Chinese licorice root is used to strengthen the stomach and
spleen, and also to harmonize and reduce the harsh effects of many
Nonglutinous rice is credited by the Chinese to help restore
the natural acid balance of both the blood and the intestinal tract.
However, where the ancients sometimes used ginseng, we now use
eleuthero root (often mis-named “siberian ginseng”), which is both
easier to grow and less expensive than its fabled Asian namesake, and
also better understood for its specific effect on regulating
blood sugar levels. Together, these ingredients help the body provide
stable, consistent energy for a healthy life!
