Don’t waste your time and money trying GlucoType 2 supplement by Phytage Labs because it is a scam! In this review you are going to find out all you need to know about this supplement and all the reasons why you should keep your distance from it. So let’s begin!
GlucoType 2 supplement was launched at around September 2019. According to its author ‘Michael Bradford’, this supplement ‘can improve your Type 2 Diabetes in less than 15 days’ without having to resort to ‘insulin, metformin or any of [Big Pharma’s] prescription drugs.’ He goes further to claim that he used GlucoType 2 ‘to save my wife’s life’ and the lives of ‘more than 16,400 diabetics and pre-diabetics.’ He says that he discovered this miracle diabetes cure ‘while deep in the jungles of the Philippines’ and now, the Big Pharma execs are out ‘to silence me before you hear what I have to say.’
Okay Michael, we’ll hear you out. So how did you discover GlucoType 2?
Backstory of GlucoType 2
Mr Bradford tells us that it all started when he and his diabetes-stricken wife of 50 years ‘Angie’ went on a church-sponsored mission trip to the Philippine capital Manila. Before the trip, she had gone to see her doctor, who gave her the bad news that her diabetes had flared up, she had gained 20 pounds, and she had early stage kidney failure. Despite his objections, Angie stubbornly insisted on going with him on the trip which, says Bradford, is sentimental to him because his veteran father fought and died in the Battle of Manila during World War II. According to him, he also wanted to visit his father’s grave in Manila too.
So off to Manila they went, and they spent three weeks spreading the Gospel to the locals there without any issues. Angie’s health ‘was holding on fine’ until the day they planned to visit his father’s grave. That morning, Angie couldn’t wake up from her sleep … and sure enough, she had fallen into what was later determined as diabetic coma!
While at the Manila hospital, the doctor told Bradford that his wife not only is on a diabetic coma, but that her right ankle is ‘swollen’ and ‘black’, and she risks losing her foot if she remained in the coma for more than 7 days. This left Bradford ‘in shock’ and ‘furious’, first at himself for allowing her to tag along with him on the trip, then at the Manila doctor for daring to blame his wife for falling into the coma…
Six days came and went without any improvement. Then on the 7th day, some old Filipino man named ‘Daniel’ burst into the hospital, screaming and shaking his head at the doctors, who screamed back in anger. Eventually the doctors left and the Daniel came over to Bradford and supposedly called the doctors ‘idiots’ for not treating his brother’s diabetes properly. If only his brother would listen to him and visit one ‘medicine healer’ in the jungle, his brother will be cured…
The two eventually set out to visit old Rosamie in the jungle. This Rosamie then gives Bedford some Banaba flowers. Five days later, she gives him ‘a greenish-brown powder’, instructing him to give his wife ‘two spoons worth per day’ and she’ll be fine ‘in no time.’ Bedford takes the powder back to the hospital and asks the doctors to administer it to his wife…which they refused to do. Eventually, they relented and guess what? Three days later, Angie was awake!
Okay this story is becoming too long and we’ve barely gone through half of it…
Ingredients of GlucoType 2
The story continues…
Bradford and his wife return to the US without saying goodbye to Daniel. Months later however, Daniel sends him a letter informing him that his diabetic brother was dead and he died because ‘he insisted on only listening to the American doctor’ instead of Rosamie. Despite his loss however, Daniel was gracious enough to send him the list of ingredients Rosamie used in her miracle powder. These ingredients include:
- Bitter melon
- Licorice root
The first three are native to the Philippines while the rest are common herbs that originate elsewhere, says Daniel. These are the ingredients Bradford eventually used to manufacture the ‘breakthrough’ known as GlucoType 2. He then used it to permanently reverse Angie’s Type 2 diabetes, as well as shed some pounds of body fat.
Science Behind GlucoType 2
The science behind GlucoType 2 is largely based on the touted effects of Banaba plant in lowering blood sugar levels. According to Bradford, a study published by ‘Biological and Pharmaceutical Bulletin’ found that Banaba:
- Lowered fasting blood sugar levels by 23%
- Caused test subjects to lose ‘15%’ of their body fat
- Lowered their ‘unhealthy’ triglyceride fats by ‘22%’
Bradford goes on to claim that another study published by the same journal found that ‘a single dose of Banaba’:
- ‘Reduced blood glucose levels’
- ‘Improves glucose metabolism by reducing insulin resistance’
Finally, he claims that ‘numerous studies’ have found that Banaba:
- Reduces bad cholesterol ‘by as much as 46% in just 10 weeks’
- ‘…has anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties’
Bradford also made other scientific claims about Bitter Melon and Gymnema. According to him, a 2018 study found that ‘the higher a patient’s blood sugar was … the more pronounced the effect’ of Bitter Melon in lowering it. As for Gymnema, a study reportedly found that the herb ‘conquered … insulin resistance.’
Of course, Bradford did not bother providing us with scientific citations to back up any of his claims.
How Much Does It Cost?
A bottle of GlucoType 2 costs $120. But if you attempt to leave the page, a pop-up stops you and then offers you an $80 discount so you’ll pay $69.95. There is also a 2-bottle plan and a 4-bottle plan.
Buying GlucoType 2 comes with what Bradford calls a ’90-day money back guarantee’ but if I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath. This is because scammers NEVER honor their refund policy!
Okay. Now to the fun part. Why is GlucoType 2 a scam?
1. The Author is Unverifiable (Does NOT Exist)
Michael Bradford calls himself a 66-year old man from Texas who has a wife, 7 children and 15 grandchildren. Apart from that, there’s no other information about him. Most importantly, there is no information about Bradford’s credentials that qualify him to produce this supplement.
There is a photo on the text version of the website supposedly showing Bradford and his family but I’ve been doing this for a long time to know that it’s a stock photo. However, I was unable to trace where he got it from as the photo doesn’t exist anywhere else on the web. This is not the first time I’ve encountered this problem. Fungus Eliminator and Okinawa Flat Belly Tonic are just two examples.
So good luck trying to find out about this man!
2. Fake Testimonials With Stock, Stolen Photos
The testimonials used to market GlucoType 2 are all fake because they were done using stock and stolen photos. The scammers were smart enough to use untraceable photos in some of their main testimonials but I was still able to confirm my suspicion that they are all fake by tracing the ones they left on the checkout page. For example:
- ‘Gary Neal of Arkansas’ is actually a stock photo you can buy at iStock;
- ‘Kelly Bergen in Tennessee’ is actually a photo of a French woman stolen from a French dating website;
- ‘Carol’ from Silverthorne. CO is actually a free stock photo you can download from UIhere.com;
- ‘Josh’ from Allentown, PA is a stock photo you can buy from iStock;
- ‘Erin’ from San Marcos, TX is a stock photo you can buy from Adobe Stock, iStock, Fotosearch, Media Bakery…
As you can see, fake!
3. GlucoType 2 is Owned by a Shady Company
GlucoType 2 is owned by Phytage Labs, you know, the same company behind the following scams:
I’ve already covered details about this company in my previous reviews so I’m not going to repeat myself. You only need to know that this company exists and thrives on selling scams to unsuspecting people!
4. The Scientific Basis is Mostly Hype
As I mentioned earlier, GlucoType 2 supplement is based on the supposed miracle ability of the Banaba plant in reversing diabetes. According to Mr Bradford, studies have shown that Banaba lowered fasting blood sugar ‘by 23%’. Of course, he failed to provide a link to the study he was citing, but my own research revealed that Banaba did reduce blood sugar levels, but by an average of 10-15%. In the study I found, the subjects only lost an average of 8.2 pounds in 12 weeks, which is far from being the ‘15% of body fat’ Bradford was claiming the patients lost in ‘9 weeks’.
So the bottom line? There is evidence that Banaba can lower blood sugar levels. But GlucoType 2 is over-hyping its effects in order to sell you their scam!
Please Note: The study I linked to wasn’t retracted because it was inaccurate, but because its content was similar to another study that was published months earlier in another journal.
I won’t bother verifying Bradford’s other claims about the other ingredients because given what we’ve uncovered so far, I think I’ve done more than enough to prove that we are dealing with a scam! Therefore:
Final Conclusion: DON’T BUY GlucoType 2. It is A SCAM!
Blacklisted Website: GlucoType2.com
If you have made the mistake of buying this product, then the best thing to do is to file a credit card dispute with your bank. Don’t bother asking Bradford for your refund because you’ll most likely be ignored. That’s what scammers do.
