Glucocil is claimed to be a “blood sugar optimizer” that helps people live a healthier life.
The product entered the market in 2008 and according to its manufacturer, it has been submitted to 7 years of research before being released.
If you suffer from diabetes or confront yourself with other blood sugar disorders, Glucocil promises to change your life majorly. But is this all true?
Let’s consider the following:

What is Glucocil?
Glucocil is presented as a blood glucose stabilizing supplement that can be purchased online or at GNC retail stores. The manufacturer advises its users to take 2 capsules of Glucocil twice per day, before lunch and dinner.
This unique formula was designed to offer all-day support for blood sugar stabilization. It includes a blend of ingredients, among which can be found a variety of B vitamins, vitamin D, natural extracts and powders, and essential oils.

How Glucocil Works
Glucocil is claimed to work by setting off the “3 Essentials of Healthy Blood Sugar”, which include:
- Reduce the Intake of Glucose
- Reduce the Production of Glucose
- Increase the Ability of the Cells to Absorb More Glucose
Ultimately, Glucocil seems to help to stabilize the sugar within the human body.
Glucocil Pricing and Refund Policy
A bottle of Glucocil includes 120 soft gels, and can be bought from various sources, including Drugstore.com ($30.00), GNC ($47.99) or from the company’s official website.
If you purchase the product from the manufacturer, you will be offered a 15-day free trial at no cost, fewer S&H charges ($4.99). Keep in mind that even if it seems cheaper, purchasing Glucocil directly from the manufacturer will automatically sign you up for their “auto ship program”, which means that you will regularly be sent Glucocil every 30 days and you will be charged $59.99 plus $4.99 S&H every single time.
Should You Choose Glucocil?
Glucocil does not appear to be a scam. Although there are a couple of red flags that should raise questions.
First of all, the supplement is not FDA approved. Moreover, in July 2013, the company received a formal notification from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration according to which the statements that appear on the official website violate the laws that restrict claims related to “treat(ing) diabetes and its complications.” That means that they are on the FDA’s list of “illegal sold diabetes treatments.”
On top of that, it seems that chromium poly nicotinate (chromium salt), which is one of the ingredients contained by Glucocil, is linked to liver toxicity in several European studies.
Despite all that, numerous positive online reviews reflect the good results that emerge from the regular use of Glucocil. Most of the users reporting the information suffer from Type II diabetes.
If you intend to use Glucocil, make sure you first talk to your physician, who is entitled to offer you the best alternative to suit your needs.
