What is Gdue and how to take it

Gdue is a dietary supplement containing a standardised and titrated blend of two brown algae (Ascophyllum Nodosum and Fucus Vesiculosus) and Chromium Picolinate. Thanks to its components, Gdue contributes to maintaining normal blood sugar levels, stimulation of metabolism and lipid metabolism.

Gdue should be taken before main meals, if possible. Maximum effectiveness is achieved by taking it half an hour before a meal, but it can also be taken at the same time as a meal, with a large glass of water (up to 3 capsules).

The intake depends on the carbohydrate content of the meal. If you have an exclusively protein-based meal, there is no need to take Gdue. Beware of preserved products: even if they contain protein, they may contain carbohydrates used for conservation purposes.

One package of Gdue contains 60 capsules.

You can buy Gdue in pharmacies and parapharmacies.

No, Gdue can be purchased in pharmacies and parapharmacies without a prescription.

No, Gdue is a Gluten Free product.

Gdue has a very low iodine content, only 75 micrograms (millionths of a gram) per capsule. The patented manufacturing process allows for the reduction of the high iodine content typical of algal derivatives.

Gdue is very well tolerated, in clinical trials involving more than 800 subjects there is a very low percentage of mild effects on the digestive system (swelling). The safety of Gdue has been evaluated at 100 times the recommended daily dose for 30 consecutive days without adverse events.
Evaluation of clinical studies involving more than one hundred subjects showed excellent tolerability in healthy, obese and diabetic volunteers up to a daily dose of 1,000 mg for three consecutive months.

The intake of dietary supplements in general, in the presence of particular conditions or in conjunction with drug therapies, should be always recommended by the doctor who, knowing in depth the patient’s history, can provide the best advice.

Who is Gdue suitable for? What it is used for?

Yes, Gdue can be taken by diabetics who are looking for a natural approach to be associated with drug therapy. Results have been verified by clinical studies.

Yes, Gdue can be beneficial for and be taken by overweight patients, with an abdominal circumference of more than 80 cm for women and 94 cm for men and/or with a BMI of more than 25.

Yes, Gdue can be beneficial for and be taken by patients suffering from arterial hypertension. In clinical trials, the blood pressure of people taking Gdue was found to be lowered, probably as a result of weight loss.

Yes, Gdue can be beneficial for and be taken by people suffering from insulin resistance. Thanks to its mechanism, which leads to an overall more physiological metabolic response, insulin secretion is reduced and insulin sensitivity is increased.

Yes, Gdue can be beneficial for and be taken by people with impaired fasting blood sugar. Subjects with impaired fasting glycaemia (IFG) with glucose levels above 100 mg/dl in clinical trials have had a significant lowering of this parameter

Yes, Gdue can be beneficial for and be taken by people suffering from dyslipidemia.

  • When diet and physical activity do not achieve the desired goals
  • When it is useful to help increase the sense of satiety
  • When carbohydrate management is essential for the success of diet therapy
  • When delaying the absorption of carbohydrates and lowering the glycaemic index of food intake is important to reduce cardiovascular risk
  • When therapy can benefit from an ‘ally’: before increasing hypoglycaemic doses and when attention needs to be paid to hypoglycaemic issues

How does Gdue work?

Gdue slows down the absorption of carbohydrates (both simple and complex), resulting in their availability for many hours. Gdue is very well tolerated.
The polyphenols contained (Florotannins) are characterised by a large steric effects which prevents their absorption.
This results in a non-systemic action with the advantages that can follow: unlike most polyphenols, it does not need to be absorbed to perform its function.

Gdue is also the first and only product with a dual mechanism of complete inhibition on both classes of enzymes that degrade starches and sugars:
• 𝛼- starch-degrading amylases

• the 𝛼-glucosidases used to break down diglycerides such as sucrose, maltose and lactosee

Yes, Gdue reduces the rate of carbohydrate absorption, making carbohydrates available for several hours. Thus, the glycaemic index of the meals consumed is lowered.

Yes, thanks to the reduction in peak of postprandial blood glucose level and the consequent absence of hypoglycaemic peaks, carbohydrates are available for use for a long time. For this reason it is a valuable ally in the case of slimming diets.

Yes, a recent real-life study carried out on more than 500 patients has shown how acting on carbohydrate metabolism contributes to reducing cardiovascular risk (RRR -27.7%) by affecting the various conditions of the metabolic syndrome (weight, glycaemia, hypertension, dyslipidemia…).

Yes, Gdue is a valuable ally in reducing postprandial hyperglycaemia, which is essential to delay and prevent diseases such as diabetes and its complications. Postprandial hyperglycaemia is an independent cardiovascular risk factor: reducing it means reducing the risk.

No, the enzyme inhibition of Gdue reduces the rate of carbohydrate absorption, making carbohydrates available for several hours, thus avoiding hypoglycaemic conditions.

It is one of the best known algae as its potential applications are the subject of numerous scientific studies and research. It grows on the rocky shores of the North Atlantic at a depth of about 30 metres and is harvested in the unpolluted coastal waters of the North Seas. It is washed and dried, maintaining all its distinctive characteristics. Ascophyllum Nodosum contains polyphenols with large steric effects that act in the duodenum and are not absorbed systemically.

It is a brown alga particularly common in the cold seas near the British Isles and the Atlantic coasts of North America and Europe.
In phytotherapy, Fucus Vesiculosus is considered one of the most selective natural remedies for reducing body weight and contributes to the physiological activity of the immune system. Like all algal derivatives, it requires well-defined production processes to reduce the iodine content so as not to cause thyroid problems: in Gdue, iodine has been drastically reduced by the production process to just 75 micrograms per capsule.

Chromium Picolinate contributes to regulating blood sugar levels and enhancing the action of insulin, resulting in a further favourable synergy of action.
Chromium picolinate supplementation may improve insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism in patients with insulin intolerance and type 1, type 2, gestational and steroid-induced diabetes, as well as in some non-diabetic subjects.

No, Gdue does not have a systemic action and does not need to be absorbed to exert its function. The polyphenols contained are characterised by a high steric effect, so they act in the duodenum and not systemically.

Yes, by prolonging carbohydrate absorption, Gdue predisposes to a constant supply of the carbohydrates, leading to prolonged energy availability. Also, since it does not cause hypoglycaemia, there is no fatigue and predisposes to better and more intense physical activity.
