Glycemic Support

Eating low-glycemic foods is a good way to maintain healthier blood sugar levels. The glycemic index is a rating system for foods containing carbohydrates that helps you know how quickly the food raises your blood sugar. Knowing this, you can choose foods that will raise your blood sugar more slowly.

What Is the Glycemic Index (GI)?

The glycemic index is a rating system for food that indicates how your blood glucose levels may increase or decrease due to its carb/sugar content.

The amount of sugar in your diet can determine how quickly your blood sugar fluctuates. However, this glycemic index rating scale changes based on the degree to which each food item is processed, how it is cooked, and how ripe it may be when you are eating it. 

Consuming a diet that consists solely of the high end of the glycemic index  (without balancing it with enough fiber and other nutrients) is prevalent in the development of Type 2 Diabetes. The same can be said for cardiovascular disease, gallbladder disease, and certain cancers.

By eating a more balanced diet (and taking other preventative measures), you can lower your risk of developing any of these health conditions. 

How Does It Affect Gastrointestinal Health?

Foods that are lower on the glycemic index are going to take longer to digest meaning that it will allow your blood glucose levels to increase in a safe and controlled manner. This means that you should be eating more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

Foods higher on the glycemic index are full of sugar and digest more rapidly. This means that foods like sugary soda, white bread, and potatoes can cause your blood glucose levels to drop, especially if it isn't a part of a balanced diet. This can be extremely dangerous and may lead to glycemic shock. 

What Is Hypoglycemic Shock?

Hypoglycemic shock (or diabetic shock) occurs when blood glucose levels plummet. When you have too much insulin in your bloodstream, the glucose levels drop quickly. You can have too much insulin in your bloodstream when:

  • You push yourself during a workout without having enough nutrients
  • You change what time or how much you eat (or give yourself an insulin injection)
  • You drink too much alcohol without eating a balanced meal

You will definitely know when your body is going to go into shock because of the physical symptoms you will go through. Symptoms of incoming hypoglycemic shock include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Sweating
  • Anxiety

Hypoglycemic shock can lead to trouble speaking and double vision. When left untreated, it can lead to unconsciousness resulting in a coma or death. 

Why Do You Need Glycemic Support?

When you are struggling with blood sugar management, you must make some lifestyle changes starting with a balanced glycemic index diet. However, your blood sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you are doing or what you are eating, so making these changes isn't going to be easy.

Eating a balanced diet with a lower glycemic index and taking dietary supplements can help you maintain healthier blood sugar levels.

Speak with your primary care physician before starting a dietary supplement for glycemic support. If there is anything that we can help you with along the way, feel free to reach out to us via email.

Shipping & Handling

A safe and accurate address for delivery must be provided at the time the order is placed. Once an order has shipped, is NOT responsible for lost or stolen packages CONFIRMED BY THE CARRIER to be delivered to the address provided for the order.

Since COVID-19, and the ensuing economic challenges in the USA economy, we respectfully ask that you allow some additional time for delivery for the carriers (USPS, UPS, and FedEx). Most orders still arrive on time, or near on time, but some may run late. We make every effort to get your order packed and into the carriers hands the same day, or by the next business morning if your order came in later in the previous day after carrier pickup, but we have no control over any delays that may happen within the shipping carrier's delivery system. Please order earlier for the time being if you are time-sensitive.

Orders that contain only FirstFitness Nutrition products have a shipping fee automatically calculated based upon the actual shipping weight of the items purchased. The charge ranges from $4.95 to $14.95.

For orders with NuMedica products you may choose from the shipping options below on the Order Checkout form in the Shipping Information section on the first line that says Choose Shipping Method.

Shipping Options

Country Option Schedule Cost
United States Standard 3-6 Days $4.95
United States Priority 2-4 Days $9.95
United States Free 7-10 Days $0.00
International FedEx International 4-7 Days $79.95*
International GlobalPost International 12-21 Days $39.95*

When your order ships we will send you a confirmation email with the delivery tracking information.

International Shipping

Shipping anything these days internationally is expensive. COVID resulted in more rigorous customs import processes, and now with much higher energy prices, international shipping rates are higher.

FedEx is the most reliable and faster carrier, at least for now, but they are expensive. Our FedEx international shipping fee is a minimum of $79.95. It usually makes more sense to get several months of supply (3 months or more) in one order to minimize the shipping expense per order over time. While the added weight of additional items may increase the base shipping price by a little (usually 10-25% depending upon total weight and destination), it is usually not by very much relative to shipping an additional small order later.

We also offer a lower-cost international shipping option using GlobalPost International for $39.95. So far, they have been reliable in getting packages correctly delivered but it takes 2 - 4 times as long to get the package delivered. Packages may take longer to process in the receiving country's customs process and status updates may not be reported as quickly. Please be patient if you choose this option to save money.

Some International orders may cost more to ship depending upon weight and location. If that happens we will contact you first and get your approval for any additional charge before proceeding. International orders may also be subject to additional customs fees and duties/taxes based upon the destination country's customs import laws and policies. These fees are NOT known or included on our order form and are typically charged and collected by the shipping carrier when they are delivering the product to it's final destination once the package has cleared the destination country's customs process. It is recommended that the buyer research custom import fees for the products/services they are importing beforehand to be aware of potential, additional fees.

Shipping Refrigerated Products

Our manufacturers formulate their probiotics to ensure their products retain viability until they reach the consumer. Probiotics that are recommended to be refrigerated remain so until the time of shipment, then shipped alongside an ice pack to ensure potency (Note: Ice pack will not arrive frozen, and product may not arrive cold). Orders placed on a Thursday-Sunday requiring cold shipping will not ship until the following Monday.


If your order has not been shipped yet, you can request a cancellation. Your original purchase amount will be refunded within three business days. If your order has already shipped, see Returns and Refunds.

Changes, Returns and Refunds

If you want to make a change to your order, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the change before your order ships. If your order has already shipped you may incur additional shipping charges for the second shipment and the return label for any products returned.

If we have made a mistake on your order, or the product arrives in a damaged or unusable condition, we will make every reasonable effort to right the situation quickly to your satisfaction.

We accept returns subject to when the return is requested and the condition the product is returned in. All returns must first be authorized by contacting us. In your request, please let us know why you are returning the item(s). We will respond promptly with authorization, the return address, and a return shipping label if appropriate.

If your order has already shipped you can return any un-opened products within 30 days of receiving your order for a 100% refund of the price paid for the product, less the actual shipping charges we incurred to get the product to you originally and then returned, less a $10 restocking fee. Un-opened means the protective seal on the bottle or container, or the shrink-wrap on the box or kit, has not been broken and the product has not otherwise been damaged in any way. You may use the original packaging for the return or acquire your own. We will provide the return shipping label. We DO NOT accept returns for NuMedica products once the protective product seal has been broken.
