Insulin is essential for maintaining healthy blood sugar (glucose) levels. Non-prescription AXULIN® supports healthy glucose metabolism by helping your body metabolize both carbohydrates and fats.1,2 Here’s how3-5:
- Insulin signaling is mainly controlled by a protein called IRS-2
- IRS-2 is activated when insulin binds to an insulin receptor on a cell’s surface
- This activation stimulates glucose uptake from the blood
Laboratory and clinical studies have shown that AXULIN provides support for the body's glucose regulating process by targeting the same pathway that insulin uses to control blood sugar.1-5
Along with being a staple of our daily diets, herbs and vegetables have been found to have additional benefits that can serve as a healthy approach to managing many ailments—including diabetes.6-13 Plant-based AXULIN is formulated to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and metabolize carbohydrates and fats. It also provides nutritional support that may benefit people with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome or pre-diabetes.1-3,5,6
The ingredients in AXULIN were specifically selected from over 100,000 compounds, including edible plant species.1,17 Through testing, Housey scientists discovered that certain species of edible plants contain active ingredients that stimulate insulin signaling in human cells. These compounds were initially discovered to be present in trace amounts in these plants.17
After years of experimental investigation, Housey scientists developed methods of identifying, concentrating, purifying and activating these compounds to provide highly active plant-derived compounds in a convenient tablet form.

For people with Type 2 Diabetes, studies show that high-fiber diets can improve blood sugar, lipids, and insulin levels.14 Escarole is a leafy green often used in soups and salads that is a good source of a wide range of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. It’s low in calories and has zero fat. Escarole is also a rich source of provitamin A, which can help improve eyesight and vision problems, and antioxidants, which may protect your cells against chronic inflammation. It also offers vitamin K to support stronger bones and reduce the risk of heart disease.15
Lactuca sativa is a form of leafy green lettuce that has been underestimated for its nutritional value. It is low in calories, fat, and sodium, and is a good source of fiber, iron, copper, folate, and vitamins A and C. In studies, bioactive compounds in Lactuca sativa have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, and support anti-diabetic activities. Vitamin A is important for vision, reproduction, embryogenic development, and immune function. The antioxidant beta-carotene helps lower risk of chronic disease, while zinc is essential for basic cellular function.16
Chromium is a mineral in the body that enhances the action of insulin and appears to be directly involved in metabolizing carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Meat, whole-grain products, and some fruits, vegetables and spices are good sources of chromium, but most foods offer only small amounts.20
Tarragon is a well-known herb used both for food preparation and healing purposes. Tarragon is used as a natural source to help regulate the immune system by reducing inflammation and increasing anti-inflammatory properties.18 It is also believed to be an effective therapy for neuropathic pain.19
Non-medicinal (inactive) ingredients provide natural health products with properties such as binding and absorption of the product.21 In AXULIN, these ingredients include Dicalcium phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, silicon dioxide, hydroxypropyl cellulose, stearic acid, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate.
