This is Dr. Serrano addressing concerns about GlutaCene.
You should know that I have worked closely with the company in the development and refinement of GlutaCene. The manufacture did put licorice in the formula without my knowledge and this can elevate your cortisol levels. You need about 300 mg a day of licorice root to possibly make a difference. However, there are a few people that can experience adverse effects with lower doses but very rare.
Licorice Root was never intended to be part of the formula and was included in only a few batches. When manufactures make something they use what is called a recipe. This recipe tells the people what to put in and how much of it and then two different people sign off on it making sure that what needs to go in actually goes in… During this process licorice root was added to the formula and nobody knows why. When the company became aware that licorice root was an ingredient it made immediate arrangements to correct labels.
Because of my involvement with GlutaCene I’ve consistently had it tested. GlutaCene consistently meets label claim with 1 exception about 5 months ago in which the results showed 3.72 grams of sugar which was much higher then what expected. This had occurred only once and has been remedied. It should be noted that components like natural flavor and natural coloring register as sugar when tested.
I hope this clarifies everything.
