How to store it
Pendulum’s effectiveness is powered by live and active probiotic strains with a prebiotic. They’re perishable if not kept cold, so it’s important to refrigerate your product when it arrives and in between use (Also, make sure to use it within 2 months after opening for maximum efficacy).
Take it daily
Take 1 capsule in the morning and 1 capsule in the evening, with food. If you miss a dose, it’s OK to take two capsules next time to catch up. Pendulum Glucose Control will help you manage your blood sugar, but to ensure optimal results, be sure to maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Think whole-body wellness for the win.
How will I feel while taking it?
Everyone’s gut microbiome is different, so results can vary. As with other probiotics, you may experience digestive changes, and possible discomfort, your first few weeks on Pendulum Glucose Control. This is common as you’re adding healthy new microbial strains to your gut microbiome. If you have persistent nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting, consult your physician.
How long will it take to see results?
Keep in mind that your A1C measurement, the gold standard for measuring glucose control, requires 3 months to see the full effect. That’s because red blood cells regenerate every 3 months on average, which means it’ll take time to see how changes in your blood glucose will impact your A1C levels.
Can I take this with my existing medication?
Before you start Pendulum Glucose Control, consult your physician as part of your total diabetes management plan. It’s worth noting that in a clinical trial, Pendulum Glucose Control’s efficacy was actually additive with metformin.*
How do I schedule my complimentary A1C tests and consultation with a Pendulum Dietitian?
