In November 2014, the principals of Glucose Health, Inc. began manufacturing functional beverages for the newly emerging diabetic nutritionals consumer market segment. A proprietary formula consisting of a special soluble fiber, targeted vitamins and minerals and an extract of the Banaba Leaf plant, was developed for Glucose Health, Inc. by Dr. Chandrasekhar Mallangi. For 25 years Dr. Mallangi managed the Nestle USA nutrition product development team. In January of 2018, Glucose Health Inc. then introduced four new & improved GlucoDown® Diabetic Friendly Iced Tea mixes in Peach, Lemon, Raspberry and Super Berry.

Today, GlucoDown® Diabetic Friendly nutritional beverages are available in-store at Walmart pharmacies nationwide, select CVS pharmacies, Amazon.com and other retailers.
