    Q. Hi
    I'm looking for advice on products that would have indications for diabetes? Is that something you can help with?
    Thanks and regards

    A. 

     Best to see a practitioner, as Diabetes presents in different forms clinically. However,  if the issue presents with blood sugar iregularities - GlucoFactors Forte is a good start.

    Q. Can you recommend an alternative to Metagenics Insulex, which has been discontinued?
    A. 

     GlucoFactorsForte is a good alternative.  Take 1 capsule daily with 2 main meals - ie breakfast and dinner.

    Warm regards - Keri Hogarth - Hygiology Naturopath

    Q. I've used Insulex in the past with excellent results. I ran out while travelling and no longer have an active nutritionist. If I cannot obtain Insulex, can you recommend an alternative in the meantime?
    A. 

     Gluco Factors Forte is a great alternative.

    Q. Which product is more beneficial adrenoplex or restacalm for stress and mild anxiety which affects my sleeping ,they seem to do the same but with different ingredients so not sure which one to purchase.i have gained weight and have started using thermo burn and shake it.
    A. 

     Restoracalm is more specific for you, as it sounds like your nervous system is over-stimulated.  Glucofactors Forte is great for stabilising sugar cravings and will help with weight management.

    Q. I am not sure what to take for sugar craving and for general muscular aches and pain. I am generally of good health.
    A. 

    A good magnesium powder can help with muscle aches and pains - see Metagenics EnergyX. This will also support your low energy levels and circulation. Bioceuticals GlucoFactors Forte will support sugar cravings. For long term management of sugar cravings you can consider taking Synergy Spirulina as a superfood multi.

    Q. Bioceutical Glucofactors has been replaced by a 'Forte'. I have been taking 1 of the ordinary Glucofactors night and morning. Should I continue with the same dosage of 'Forte' or should it be reduced?
    A. 

    The dose of the Glucofactors Forte is one capsule daily - best taken in the morning with food.

    Regards, Keri Hogarth - Hygiology Naturopath

    Q. Can you recommend a supplement or vitamin to improve my immune system? I want to reduce weight but I never succeed. Could you also give some advice what vitamin or supplement can control my appetite?
    A. 

    For general immune support look at Bioceuticals Mushroom 6 - a strong protective formula for low immunity. For appetite control, Bioceutical GlucoFactors Forte can help. For long term weight management, you may need a consult with a Naturopath to review your current diet and lifestyle.
