Dear Tango, I want to take this opportunity to share with you my thoughts about MetaPhase. Whereas Mendelian statistics predict that one in four children of a diabetic will also develop diabetes, in my family the statistic has been 100% for the past two generations. Over the years I have come to think that my family's disease is a bit different from what is normally considered diabetes. Our disease is always adult onset, we are all pear shaped, and we all have the usual diabetic complications. When I was diagnosed with diabetes in 1975 at the age of 40 my blood sugars were controlled by diet for a short while. Later my doctor prescribed the anti-diabetic drug Diabeta, which helped for a year or so at which time I began using insulin. Over the years my dosage of insulin has increased as my age progressed. Finally, in August 2004 my right leg was amputated and I am now a homebound cripple. In 2006 Dr. Mitchell A. Fleisher recommended I try MetaPhase. At the time I was experiencing yet another infection and my blood sugar levels were uncontrollable. My daily insulin dosage was 360 units. Dr. Fleisher recommended that I start with six MetaPhase capsules per day in the beginning. A month later, when my blood sugars began to get too low, e. g., 65, 50, 70, I began to reduce my insulin dosage. After about 3 months I learned how to balance my insulin dosage to maintain blood sugars between 90 and 120. Metaphase was then reduced to four capsules per day and my current insulin requirement is down to 150 units per day. Blood sugar tests now show that my long-term sugar (A1c) levels have dropped down within normal range. Additional benefits I've noticed include increased mental alacrity and increased stamina. Most important for me is that I no longer have any infections. For me, this is a miracle. It's all because of Metaphase. Thank you for Metaphase. You have my deepest gratitude because Metaphase keeps me well enough to still be useful to the two little children I tutor each week. Respectfully yours, Joan H. Thomasson
Dear Tango, I am writing to tell you about our continued success with Metaphase. When we first started taking MetaPhase over a year ago our morning blood sugar measurements dropped from the high 140's down to about 110 when taking 2 capsules, twice daily. Harold had lost about 15 pounds and I lost about 8. Both of us noticed that our food cravings were slightly reduced, which is amazing since neither of us are great dieters. Most importantly, prior to taking MetaPhase our A1C levels were both around 7.5, which our doctor was very concerned about. Then, after six months on MetaPhase Harold's A1C level dropped to 6.9, and mine was down to 7.1. Now, a year after those last results, we have just received the latest A1C numbers from our doctor. To our delight, Harold's A1C has dropped again, and is now down to 5.4, the lowest level ever. My A1C is down to 6.3. I must admit that I have not been as diligent about taking MetaPhase as Harold has been, and the results show. Regards, Myrna S.
Dear John, I thought you would be interested to learn that my wife has been able to maintain her blood sugar levels, keeping them within normal limits using Metaphase. She recently ran out of Metaphase before I could reorder it, and her blood sugar levels began to increase dramatically, hence my email order to you today. I think my wife's experience with Metaphase demonstrates the formula's effectiveness for helping people with Type 2 diabetes control their blood sugar levels. Please feel free to use this e-mail to promote this product, which I feel more people should be aware of. Kind Regards, Stan Williams
Dear Tango, I'm not sure whether MetaPhase is doing anything for me, but when I first started I noticed a reduction in how much carbohydrate-heavy food I ate at one time. It's been what, 2 or 3 months, and I've lost a small amount of fat, but that could easily be attributed to running a lot more. That abdominal fat is very stubborn. Anyway I'll keep it up a while longer, then do some blood glucose measurements to see if those changed. Stuart A.
Dear Tango, I'm a Type I diabetic and use an insulin pump to control my blood sugar levels. While I haven't yet noticed much improvement with my fluctuating blood sugar levels, I am able to use a little less insulin on a regular basis. Also, my overall health and energy has improved. I think it is due to MetaPhase helping my insulin resistance, since it will not be able to restore pancreas function in my case. Thanks. David H.
Dear Tango, MetaPhase is working well for blood sugar stabilization for my patients. As an example, one patient is an obese, brittle diabetic, meaning it is very difficult for her to control her blood sugar levels. Taking three capsules of MetaPhase three times per day her energy has improved and her depression has lessened. Just as importantly, she has reduced her insulin requirement by 40 percent. Dr. Mitch Fleisher, MD
Dear Tango, After just two bottles of MetaPhase the evening spikes in my blood sugar are under control and I've lowered my dose of Metformin by 50 percent. Benjamin D.
I have had Type 2 diabetes for the past 20 years. About 2 and a half years ago, I was having adverse side effects to one or two of the drugs I was taking to control my diabetes, Avandia and Actos. These drugs had caused macular edema which led to blurred vision. It wasn't working well to control my A1C levels, and when I read that it could cause bladder tumors as well, I decided to stop taking it, and started looking a natural alternative. I've been taking MetaPhase for 2 years, 3 months, and after the first dose I took, I just felt good. After 6 months I noticed my A1C beginning to drop and my blood sugar levels were more on an even keel. After that, my A1C levels gradually decreased. Over the 2 and 1/4 years that I have been taking MetaPhase, my A1C has dropped from 8.5 to 7.2. I didn't do anything different in my diet or exercise. I still take a few diabetes medications, but I stopped taking the ones that caused oracular edema, and that has reversed. My diabetes is the most under control that it has been in the past 20 years. I continue to feel good when I take, I feel more balanced, and have better health over all. I expect I'll take it forever, so please don't stop making it! --Jo H.
Dear Tango, I wanted to tell you about a little dachshund that came to my clinic feeling poorly last week. We checked his blood glucose level and it was 128. (124 is high-normal for a dog). We altered his diet and sprinkled about a third of a capsule of MetaPhase on his food. The next morning his blood glucose level was 92 - absolutely prefect. We continued to give him MetaPhase with his twice daily feedings sent him home yesterday, looking and feeling much better. Art S., D.V.M.

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), metabolic and blood sugar issues have reached epidemic proportions, currently affecting one third of all men and women in the United States, or some 80 million adults.
Metabolic and blood sugar issues don't occur suddenly, but develop slowly over an extended period of time - 20 to 30 years in some cases. And while people may notice the obvious early signs, such as excess fat, exhaustion, mood issues and increased carbohydrate cravings, most don't realize they have metabolic issues soon enough.
First identified by Prof. Vladimir Dilman in the 1960s as The Metabolic Pattern of Aging and further elucidated by antiaging pioneer Dr. Ward Dean in his groundbreaking Neuroendocrine Theory of Aging, widespread acceptance of the concept of metabolic and blood sugar issues by the medical community didn't occur until 1988.
In the 1980s doctors in China were alarmed by sharp increases in the incidence of metabolic and blood sugar issues. So, after almost ten years of clinical evaluation a team of doctors at Shanghai People's Hospital developed MetaPhase, a unique herbal blend that supports healthy insulin and blood sugar levels already within the normal range. In clinical tests these herbal ingredients were shown to promote health by addressing the wide spectrum of challenges that often accompany blood sugar issues.
By maintaining healthy blood sugar regulation and insulin production, MetaPhase has been shown to help with long-term metabolic and chemical issues. Additionally, by addressing carbohydrate cravings MetaPhase may aid in supporting safe and natural weight loss.
What is the recommended daily dose of MetaPhase?
The recommended starting daily dose of MetaPhase is 2-3 capsules, 2-3 times per day.
It is best to take MetaPhase 15-30 minutes before meals to help digest the meal and reduce responses to foods.
How much MetaPhase can I safely take in a day?
You can safely take 4 capsules, 3 times per day for a total of 12 capsules in a day. However, that should only be necessary for short periods of time to initiate results. After benefits appear, you can reduce the dose to 2-3 capsules, 2-3 times per day for ongoing maintenance of metabolic health. Some people then further reduce their dose to 1 capsule, 3 times per day or 2 capsules, 2 times per day before their biggest meals.
How do I know MetaPhase is working for me?
MetaPhase is a Tango Advanced Nutrition product that should make a change for you in how you feel. It should promote metabolic health so that you maintain steady energy throughout the day.
Many of our customers report results in the first few weeks of use. The change should be very noticeable. Instead of saying to yourself, "I think this might be helping me," you really should be able to say, "Wow, I feel a lot better."
Usually, very clear results show up in the first month of use for most people.
You should also note results in blood and other physiological tests when the supportive nutrition provided by the MetaPhase herbs accumulates benefits for you.
Do I have to take MetaPhase forever?
Everybody has a different set of circumstances that will determine how their metabolic health changes when using MetaPhase. Your response to the supplement will be determined by your individual health circumstances. Issues with metabolic health are typically long-standing over many years. This may determine how soon you notice positive changes and how long you may need or wish to take the formula.
However, the formula is strong enough so that everybody who will get benefits should expect them in the first month of use.
When positive changes in metabolic health happen, you can lower your dose gradually by one capsule at a time every 4-5 days and expect to see continued benefits. The reason for this is that, as with all true health-promoting supplements, MetaPhase provides restorative results.
Some people will be able to discontinue MetaPhase and switch to a different supplement that provides daily benefit for all of their health concerns. Others will take the formula on an as-needed basis.
When should I take MetaPhase?
The most important consideration in taking MetaPhase is to use it daily and consistently. Convenience makes regular use possible, so including MetaPhase in your regular supplement routine is a good idea.
You should take MetaPhase 15-20 minutes before meals if possible.
You can take 3 capsules, 2 times per day for the recommended daily dose of 6 capsules instead of 2 capsules, 3 times per day. Be sure to take one of your doses before your largest meal of the day.
Some people take their final dose of MetaPhase about 1 hour before bedtime to make sure they have beneficial nutrients working while they are sleeping.
Can I take MetaPhase with other supplements?
Yes, you can take MetaPhase with and at the same time as you take other dietary supplements.
I take over-the-counter/prescriptive medicines for my heart and blood circulation. Can I take MetaPhase with them?
You can take MetaPhase while you are using medicines for your heart and circulatory system or any other condition. However, you should always take MetaPhase or any other supplement at least 2 hours away from any medication to reduce any possible risk of interaction.
As a special precaution, you should not take MetaPhase if you are on the drastic blood thinning medication warfarin/coumadin.
You should also exercise caution when taking aspirin, plavix or other blood-thinning medication while also using MetaPhase.
If you have any questions about using MetaPhase or any other supplement while you are using medications of any type, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Can I combine MetaPhase with some of your other products like Vital Cell or Herbal Boost?
Yes, you can take MetaPhase with Vital Cell or Herbal Boost. However, you do not need to take both Vital Cell and Herbal Boost with MetaPhase. We recommend Vital Cell as the best formula to combine with MetaPhase.
We do suggest starting at a lower dose of each than is recommended on the bottle as there is some overlap in function between the supplements. You can increase the doses of each by one capsule per day until you feel the effect that you are trying to achieve.
You can also call one of our product specialists if you have questions about how best to combine our formulas. The toll-free number for product questions is 1-866-778-2646, ext. 2.
Can a woman take MetaPhase if she is pregnant or nursing?
No, we do not recommend that a woman take MetaPhase if she is pregnant or nursing. This is not because MetaPhase is unsafe but because there have been no safety studies performed on the ingredients in MetaPhase for pregnancy and nursing.
Can children take MetaPhase?
We do not recommend that people under that age of 18 take MetaPhase.
Can I give MetaPhase to my pet (cat, dog, or horse)?
Yes, however, you should contact a holistic veterinarian for advice on the dose you should give to your pet, since animals vary widely in size and speed of metabolism. Both of those factors determine doses for supplements for animals.
Is MetaPhase tested for contaminants that could harm my health?
Yes, we regularly test batches of our formulas to make sure they meet strict quality control guidelines recommended by government regulatory agencies.
Are there any side effects from taking MetaPhase?
MetaPhase does not cause drowsiness or make a person sleepy. It also does not contain any stimulants that might cause jitteriness or lack of sleep.
What do I do if I think taking MetaPhase is causing me discomfort?
The most common discomforts experienced by a tiny percentage of people when taking any vitamin, mineral, or herbal formula are digestive upset or very mild allergic reactions such as skin itching or irritability.
These minor discomforts usually disappear by taking a lower dose or by taking the supplement with meals.
If you should experience discomfort when taking MetaPhase and it does not go away with these suggestions, then discontinue use and contact our product specialist for further recommendations at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2. If we cannot determine a way for you to continue use of the product to gain its benefits, then we will arrange for a full refund for you.
