Pharmapure Sugar Blocker Facts

  • Pharmapure supplements are made by Pure Tek in California.
  • Each bottle contains 90 caplets (1 month’s supply).
  • On sale from Wal Mart.

We all have our different issues with weight gain. For some people it’s portion sizes, for others it is carbs and processed food, for others it is a generally unhealthy diet without exercise.

One thing that derails many people is sweet food such as candy bars and sweets, ice cream, donuts, cakes and pastries. These types of sweet food are everywhere and can be hard to resist.

Pharmapure Sugar Blocker proposes a way to help you do just that and looks to be an easy way to manage your cravings. It is suitable for diabetics too. Each caplet contains a herbal extract called Gymnema Sylvestre which studies have shown, changes the taste of sugar and sweet foods into something bland and tasteless. This means that if you take the supplement you should find that you cannot taste your usual sweet treats so they become very easy to avoid.

Gymnema Sylvestre is a herb which is found in Asia. It contains natural chemicals called Saponins which suppress the taste of sweetness. According to the advertising these natural chemicals simply blocks the taste of sugar on your tongue.

Other ingredients in the caplets are chromium extract – believed to help the body regulate sugar levels and Vanadyl sulfate a compound derived from Vanadium, a chemical element found in marine biology. Vanadyl sulfate is being investigated as a treatment for diabetes as a means for increasing insulin sensitivity.

Pharmapure is a brand which comes from PureTek, a US company based in California and a premier manufacturer of supplements. This major company produces and manufactures pharmaceuticals for some of the largest, most recognized national retail chains. It also produces own label brands such as Pharmapure.

You cannot buy supplements direct from PureTek. Instead their products can be found in shops and stores across the USA. Pharmapure Sugar Blocker is available from numerous retail outlets including Wal Mart.

How to Take Pharmapure Sugar Blocker

Take 1 capsule 3 times daily.

Pharmapure Sugar Blocker Concerns:

  • The claims about the principle ingredient Gymnema Sylvestre sound convincing but could this ingredient turn out to be another in a long line of duds like Hoodia?
  • Could there turn out to be long term side effects? This information is not known.
  • There are numerous reasons for weight gain. If you do not have issues with sweets, this supplement may not help you.

What Does Pharmapure Sugar Blocker Claim To Do?

There are 10 key features about Pharmapure Sugar Blocker:

  • Diabetic friendly
  • Helps neutralize the dietary effects of sugar
  • Manages your efforts to cut back on sweets
  • Assists you in meeting your weight loss challenges
  • Blocks the taste of sugar on the tongue
  • Reduces cravings for sugary foods and beverages
  • Prevents sugar absorption in the digestive system
  • Assists in blood sugar stabilization
  • Decreases the chances of sugars being converted into body fat
  • Experience fewer sugars in the bloodstream (in the form of glucose)

Pharmapure Sugar Blocker works in three ways:

  • Sugar Blocker can block the taste of sugar on the tongue thereby reducing cravings for sweets and sugary foods and beverages.
  • Sugar Blocker can help block sugar absorption into the digestive system leaving many sugars unabsorbed.
  • Sugar Blocker can help stabilise blood sugar which translates as fewer sugars in the bloodstream (glucose) and less chance of sugars converted into body fat.

The product information also mentions the importance of exercise and diet and provides healthy tips and information in the packaging.

So What Is Pharmapure Sugar Blocker and What Are The Ingredients?

Pharmapure Sugar Blocker is a supplement designed to help you cut down on sugar.

Each capsule is equal to one serving.

  • Gymnema Sylvestre (87mg): This climbing plant grows in India and Sri Lanka as well as Australia and tropical Africa. It is well known as a medicinal herb for conditions including malaria, snake bite and laxative. These days’ people are more interested in its capacity as a treatment for diabetes and obesity.
    The Gymnema leaf contains chemicals called Saponins that decrease the absorption of sugar from the intestines. It may also encourage the production of insulin in the body. It seems to increase cells in the pancreas which is where insulin is made. The final effect is that it suppresses the taste of sweetness on the tongue. Gymnema leaf extract, notably the peptide ‘Gurmarin’, has been found to interfere with the ability of the taste buds on the tongue to taste sweet and bitter. Gymnemic acid has a similar effect. It is believed that by inhibiting the sweet taste sensation, people taking it will limit their intake of sweet foods.

  • Chromium (67mcg): Essential trace element which means that the body requires very little of this metal but it is crucial for health. It appears to help regulate how our bodies use insulin and is being investigated as a treatment for diabetes. It may play a role in reducing LDL cholesterol if taken long term. However it requires further study.

  • Vanadyl Sulfate (5mg): This is an inorganic compound of the mineral Vanadium which the body requires in trace amounts. Vanadyl Sulfate has been studied as a way of increasing insulin sensitivity but the evidence has not proven that it improves glycaemic control. That said there are some anecdotal accounts from people using OTC Vanadyl Sulfate supplements who have drastically improved blood sugar levels following taking.

So What Does All This Mean?

Nothing is strictly proven about the ingredients. They all need further evidence and testing but that said the results look promising. You may find that Pharmapure Sugar Blocker helps you avoid giving into sugar cravings and if this supplement does only this one thing, for many people that will be money well spent.

Of course you will have to employ some will power to take the supplement. If you really know that sweets will not taste as sweet any more, it may be hard to willingly take this pleasure away from yourself.

Does Pharmapure Sugar Blocker Have Any Side Effects?

Pharmapure Sugar Blocker looks safe for most people. However we are slightly concerned about the Vanadyl Sulfate content which can cause.

These may include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Stomach discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Gas
  • Fatigue
  • Green tongue.

Caution:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your physician first if you are taking prescription medication or if you have an underlying medical condition in case of possible interactions. Speak to your doctor and cease taking if you experience side effects.

Gymnema will affect blood sugar levels so if you are diabetic you should speak to your practice nurse or your doctor for advice.

Any Pharmapure Sugar Blocker Reviews From Customers?

Pharmapure Sugar Blocker is available from a wide choice of outlets so there are plenty of customer reviews to see.

The overwhelming opinion is positive and not one customer has mentioned side effects.

This customer has only been taking it for a week but is satisfied:

This product does what it says it will – it reduces the cravings for sweets and blocks the taste of sugar. The sweet taste is eliminated from the foods, and I find it to be an unappealing taste instead, which keeps me from wanting more. I have been taking it for about a week, and I definitely recommend this product for someone who has a brutal sweet tooth like I do.

This customer felt it has helped his diabetes. Please note that you should consult with your doctor before taking if you have ANY medical condition:

This really works for me to lower my blood glucose levels. Within 48 hours, my fasting readings without diet change went from around 150 to 115. I had tried it for a month several months prior and lost 13 pounds during the month. Not sure it will work for everyone the same way. My doctor had never heard of it. But it’s worth a try for one month. I had never heard of it prior to walking in a store and looking for diabetic supplements…

Many customers are less certain:

I am not sure on this product yet. I have not gained weight and I have not lost any…… The one thing that I notice is that I don’t crave sweets like before…

This customer felt it was more of a taste blocker than a sugar blocker:

The purpose of this pill is to block your cravings through your tongue. You are supposed to take 1 pill prior to meal time, but before swallowing leave on your tongue for 15 seconds. I noticed immediately that my tongue had a dry blah feeling to it. I then ate a CHOBANI yogurt. There was basically NO TASTE to the yogurt. So, essentially you are blocking taste buds so you will not taste that oh so delicious flavor of sweetness…

The most negative review we could find was this:

I just don’t see it working? If you let it melt on your tongue a few minutes…you don’t taste sweet as much? But I don’t see it stopping my cravings. I’m hopeful so two stars. It’s only been a few weeks. If it starts working I will change my feedback. But right now? This pill just dulls my taste buds a little. Doesn’t do much else, sorry.

So Does Pharmapure Sugar Blocker Work?

We think that it does probably work for some people. Many people have tried this supplement and everybody mentions the effect on the tongue in relation to blocking sweet flavours. Not everyone has lost a lot of weight and in some people the effect was not very noticeable but even negative reviewers have mentioned positive attributes which is very unusual.

Gymnema Sylvestre is generating an increasing amount of scientific evidence. It seems to improve glycaemic control in diabetes and it appears to have an immediate effect of reducing the cravings for sugar. Although research is in fairly early stages, Gymnema Sylvestre looks extremely promising.

If sweet foods are your problem, you may find that this supplement helps you. Some people who suffer from diabetes have also found that it helps reduce blood sugar levels. That said it is important that you should speak to your doctor if you have any medical concerns or questions about managing your condition.

What About A Guarantee

Pharmapure Sugar Blocker is not covered by a money-back guarantee.

Watchdog Verdict

We are impressed with Pharmapure Sugar Blocker. This inexpensive supplement (especially if you buy it from Wal Mart) looks to be both safe and effective. If a sweet tooth is your particular weight loss demon you may find that this supplement helps you resist temptation. Many people report that this weight loss strategy has helped. Many people have felt that this supplement has helped them manage diabetes too.

All this positive genuine feedback and satisfied customers gives a great impression that Pharmapure Sugar Blocker is worth a try. You might feel the same.

However we must stay on the side of caution. The clinical evidence into Gymnema Sylvestre is still in early stages and it is important to remember that we have been through various “miracle” ingredients many times before.

If you remember a few years back, everyone was raving about Hoodia for example but now all these claims have been discredited. Other so called miracle ingredients have been down the same road. It ALWAYS sounds convincing but in many cases, there turn out to be hidden problems or issues with the testing. The evidence for Gymnema Sylvestre certainly looks convincing but it does require further testing.

This means that we cannot recommend Pharmapure Sugar Blocker. Although there are lots that we like about this supplement, we cannot really recommend Pharmapure Sugar Blocker until the proof about Gymnema Sylvestre is established.

  1. I have been on these pills forsix months now. I take psychotropic meds for my mental health and some for my phsyical health. I have type 2 and thats being monitored. First i was told and read online that some of the antidepressants that are also antipsychotics raise blood sugar. Idk how that occurs. I have a terrible sweet tooth and started noticing i was easing up more ans more on sweets. But the last couple of days i have taken in more sweets along with these pills and noticed an almoat instant very red flush to my face and elsewhere along with heat. Not exactly the sweaty hot flashes wither. I have loat over 30 pounds and have laid off snacks to a good extent. I can only figure my unique health and situation along with an sudden increase in sweets caused it. BP was within good range. I havent actually been monitoring blood sugar at home but i had enough of the extremwmly high blood sugar over the summer that i got a bad yeast infection and is still driving me crazy. I would have thought my body would have rid of the extra sugar by now and dont understand. I just flat out quit one med pscy had me on after i read up on it. And gradually decreased my sweets. Any advice?
