I have always been a partial responder to RALA so I recently have tried GXR for the past 1.5 weeks at the starting dose of 1 cap twice daily. I'm Type II diabetic so I monitor my blood sugar readings consistently and have a pretty strict and consistent diet. So far I have noticed less effect with the GXR than even the RALA (Bulk Nutrition Brand). I was extremely hopeful that GXR might enable me to continue to improve insulin sensitivity and give me a wider range of food choices through it's insulin lowering properties. Anyone have any suggestions on making this product more effective? If the GXR works similarly to RALA than the cost is prohibitive and I probably wasted some money. All responses and thoughts appreciated.
