Steady Blood Glucose Levels

We use Chicory Root Fiber in our NuGo Slim® bars, which has virtually no effect on blood sugar levels because it doesn’t absorb or begin to digest until it reaches the large intestine.

Verified Low Glycemic

GI Labs of Toronto, Canada, the experts on the glycemic index, tested the glycemic levels of our bars, and all Slim bars have a verified very low glycemic index of 24-29.

Sweet Without the Sweetener

Other bars use artificial sweeteners to avoid blood sugar spikes, but don't take into account all of the other negative impacts they have on the rest of the body. That’s why there are no artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols in NuGo Slim® bars. No maltitol. No problem.

Chris, The Life of a Diabetic
They help me when I need a snack and most importantly, there’s no blood sugar spikes and they help maintain a steady blood sugar. When I decided to sample and try these products, I wanted to wait until a time where my blood sugar was not jumping all around, up and down, so that I could get a good gauge on what the bar would actually do. My blood sugar did not spike after eating. If you are looking for an in-between meal snack, a protein bar for breakfast, maybe before or after a gym workout, then I highly recommend the NuGo Slim bars.

My son's blood sugar levels aren't stable yet, as he is in puberty. I find that lower glycemic choices are better for him. Enter NuGo Nutrition. Their bars provide protein and fiber without the sugars and artificial sweeteners found in other products. From the second I showed him the bars and all the flavors, my son and I were intrigued. We enjoyed trying all the different flavors and they held up being carried around in my son's diabetes go bag. My kid has always been a picky eater but he loved everything he tried from NuGo.aybe before or after a gym workout, then I highly recommend the NuGo Slim bars. But the best part for us - the high protein keeps my son and I satisfied and there are no sugar spikes.

If you or a loved one has diabetes you already know that this chronic condition must be managed through lifestyle behaviors and with medication. But vacation always changes our behaviors (eating, drinking, sleeping, exercise) and often even our timing. These vacation changes can affect how we manage our blood sugar. By having these bars with me, I can stay ahead of hunger and keep my blood sugar consistent- which also helps to keep my energy steady throughout the day.

Toby Smithson, Diabetes Everyday
It was a 2017 replay of Hurricane Matthew with Hurricane Irma, this year. Planning is always important for effective diabetes management, and when facing a potential emergency it is absolutely essential. Most importantly, this time I knew that food availability could be unpredictable. These bars served as my “go to nutrition bar” for breakfast that morning we evacuated. NuGo Slim bars kept my hunger at bay and my blood sugars in sync by candlelight during an 18 hour power outage caused by tropical storm Irma. You can never be too prepared. The NuGo Slim bar was a perfect combination of nutrients (protein, carbohydrate, fiber, and fat) to use as a meal replacement or snack, relieving hunger and keeping blood sugar steady.

I have RHG (Reactive Hypoglycemia) and not only do these bars taste great but they help keep me full between meals and keep my blood sugar from spiking. I have tried other bars and they taste like sugar free bars but not this one; the sweetness is over the top and they work better than any other bar I have ever tried. I highly, highly, highly recommend these bars for anyone with RHG or who is a diabetic.

I bought these hoping to find a healthy protein-heavy snack bar. Taste was a secondary consideration. Boy, was I surprised! These things taste wonderful! I hope you like them as much as I do.

They are SO good. I am not diabetic but I have low blood sugar and most protein bars totally make me crash due to more carbs and sugar than protein and the artificial sweeteners totally trigger my IBS. These are GREAT.
