Balancing a healthy lifestyle with the demands of everything else life throws at you takes a lot of energy‚ and is often overwhelming. The last thing you want to be worrying about is whether your blood sugar levels are within the normal range. If you’re a type 2 diabetic‚ suffer from insulin resistance‚ or have hypoglycemia (a condition characterized by low blood sugar levels)‚ you probably have meal plans centered on your medication‚ which you take during certain times of the day. When a busy lifestyle and unexpected situations throw you off schedule‚ you should take comfort in knowing that a quick replacement meal is available to minimize any health complications related to your condition.
Metagenics’ UltraGlycemX is a convenient medical food. It’s a low-glycemic shake supplement that releases sugar into your bloodstream at a slow‚ steady rate that lessens the chance of an energy crash. It’s recommended by health care professionals because it contains the necessary fat‚ protein‚ carbohydrates‚ vitamins‚ minerals‚ and phytonutrients (plant nutrients) that make up a complete‚ nutrient-packed meal.
UltraGlycemX is a nutrient powder that you mix with water to form an appealing and satisfying flavored shake. The original flavor is tasteless‚ allowing you to blend it with any juice of your choice! This beverage supplement is ideal if you’ve been diagnosed with an insulin dysfunction or metabolic disorder and need nutritional support.
As a replacement meal‚ UltraGlycemX provides a convenient solution for daily meal planning schedules. This product is specially formulated for people who don’t have enough time to prepare proper meals throughout the day and might run the risk of developing hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia (blood sugar that spikes too high or too low). It’s easy to bring with you all day long.
One serving of UltraGlycemX has 120 calories per serving‚ and contains 24 essential vitamins and minerals‚ in addition to other dietary ingredients. It also features two clinically significant ingredients:
The recommended dose of UltraGlycemX is two cups daily‚ unless otherwise recommended by your doctor. It’s easy to make: all you have to do is mix the powder with liquid by shaking‚ blending‚ or stirring it. One container provides 22.5 ounces of powder.

UltraGlycemX Medical Food has less sugar but the taste is not very pleasant and I would not order it again.

container only half full
The container of UltraGlycemX Medical Food was less than half full and at the recommended 4-scoops per day lasted less than two weeks and was expensive for amount you get. I felt and noticed no change after the first container. So its too much money just to experiment with hoping for good results thats what I told my practitioner. Will not be persuaded to buy again.
Did nothing for me that I could tell.
