Januvia (sitagliptin phosphate) is a once-daily oral diabetes treatment that helps to control blood sugar levels by regulating insulin levels produced by the body after eating. It comes in the form of a 100mg tablet that is clinically proven FDA approved medication used for treating type 2 diabetes. Both men and women, above the age of 18, with type 2 diabetes can but this highly effective treatment online.
The active substance in Januvia, sitagliptin, works by increasing the amount of 'incretin' hormones in the body. These hormones are usually released straight after a meal and are used by the body to encourage the pancreas to produce insulin. This is when sitagliptin becomes effective. It will force the pancreas to produce more insulin when glucose levels are high in the blood and will also decrease the amount of sugar produced in the liver. This process effectively controls type 2 diabetes.
