The BG caplet releases pure glucose in a delayed and sustained manner to target low blood sugar around 2-4 am. Many clinical studies with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) proved this vulnerable time frame of nocturnal hypoglycemia.
why do most low blood sugar level and nightmares or related symptoms occur between 2-4am?
This is because most REM (rapid eye movement) cycles occur in this period of sleep. REM sleep requires higher energy supply for memory consolidation. Senior adults have less REM sleep than children, and Alzheimer’s (AD) patients rarely have REM sleep at all. Many diabetic (DM) patients think that their sleep improved with less dreaming after using medium or long acting insulin products or some diabetes medications like glipizide, but this might affect memory functions in the long run.
without continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), how do people know they suffer from low blood sugar during sleep?
In moderate cases, people may have nightmares, night sweats, or wake up feeling tired; in severe cases, people may suffer from hallucinations, seizures, coma or even death.
why do alzheimers' patient's without diabetes (dm) have those symptoms (nightsmares, night sweats, etc.) also?
While many seniors with type 2 DM end up with dementia, some AD patients without DM still lack glucose in their brain during night. We first raised this issue on the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in 2013 in Boston. Recent years more studies proved this, such as the research publication by the medical school of Temple University in Philadelphia (1/31/2017, we have no affiliation with them).
what will happen without taking brainglucose for those symptoms?
Alzheimer’s or dementia: if early or mid-stage AD ignore their nightmares which happen several time a month, their condition may deteriorate within half a year to severe stage and lose their independence and dignity of lives.
Diabetics: for younger patients, their hormone rescue system may react vigorously to cause seizures or coma; while for seniors, their memory may decay gradually to become Alzheimer’s disease eventually.
For cancer patients on Chemo therapy: since their digestion systems are compromised by Chemo agents, they cannot absorb nutrients for overnight energy supply. Luckily, glucose is the only ready energy supply without digestion needed. Eliminating nightmares and night sweats can improve patients’ overall mood and confidence during this critical therapy.
Other patients: as long as the symptoms are similar, BG can provide the same results and help, such as for some Parkinson disease patients.
what is the difference between brainglucose and biogen's aduhelm?
BrainGlucose stabilizes memory proteins to prevent plaque formation, while Aduhelm eliminates beta-amyloid clumps from the brain as claimed.
what is the typical use of brainglucose?
Diabetics (I,II) on medium or long acting insulin products (nocturnal hypoglycemia)
Early and mid stage Alzheimer's, dementia, LBD (anxiety, nightmares, night sweats, hallucinations)
On chemo therapy with nausea/vomiting (GI lining compromised)
what is so special about brainglucose?
BrainGlucose uses patented technologies to deliver brain energy nutrient glucose in a timed manner. BrainGlucose is also safe and permitted by US FDA as in class of foods/medical foods. BrainGlucose has been loved by customers on amazon.com since 2013.
who should take brainglucose?
Like a ticking time bomb, many Alzheimer's patients end up suffering from nightmares, night sweats, or early morning hallucinations at least once a week. BrainGlucose is the only proved savior for them! Without it, patients will deteriorate to severe stage AD and lose basic freedom and dignity, which puts a lot of stress on family and caregivers!
Maintain stable glucose levels during sleep and eliminate nightmares, night sweats, and hallucinations caused by higher energy demand for REM sleep cycles.
Prevent nocturnal hypoglycemia and early morning seizures on medium or long acting insulin products or some oral medications, like Glipizide, Prevents Somogji effect, which causes higher fasting glucose levels.
would brainglucose cause higher a1c?
Absolutely not! 1-2 caplets only equals the blood sugar of 1/5 of a slice of bread! We have 65 year old subjects taking glucose tablets daily for years and still keep their A1c levels under 55 in 2023.
Preserve normal brain functions and precious memories for different types of Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Declined brain functions caused by stroke may see benefits as well.
Provide ready energy nutrition for patients undergoing chemotherapy for a better sleep. Glucose is the only natural energy that can diffuse into blood circulation without needing enzyme digestion for the brain, even your GI track lining is compromised by Chemo agents.
how do you use brainglucose?
Start with taking 1-2 caplets at bedtime for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Lewy Body dementia (LBD), and other dementia patients; Start with taking 2-3 caplets for diabetes, Chemo therapy, and other patients for prevention of nocturnal hypoglycemia.
