An effective daily supplement to diminish stress-induced sugar cravings and improve energy levels.

Written By LENA RAFF


The Nue Co. has long been a favorite of the VIOLET GREY community. We trust the super clean, research-driven, sustainable brand with everything from our sleep, to our immunity, to our skin. So, when they offered us a capsule that moderates the body’s stress response and regulates blood glucose to curb our stress-induced sugar cravings, we put down the cookies and picked up the chic jar. 


VIOLET STAFFERS are always busy sourcing (and obsessing over) the best that The Industry has to offer, so a fair bit of stress comes with territory. Not to mention the, ya know, years long global pandemic. Therefore, when we noticed our afternoon and late-night snacking start to decrease, and our energy levels stabilize after consistent ingestion of this supplement, we knew we had an absolute winner on our hands. Quickly, (and calmly) we sent it off to our Committee of Industry Experts for their revered feedback.

“This is an excellent formulation to help with blood sugar regulation and post-meal insulin spikes. This supplement does double duty from a functional perspective: chromium brings homeostasis and the glutamine heals.” —KACIE CARTER, Nutritionist, Chef & Owner of Honey Hi

“This brand does a great job of formulating a natural product, and this supplement is a healthy way to avoid some unwanted cravings and sugar spikes.” —VANESSA PACKER RU, Nutritionist and Fitness Expert

“I am an absolute sugar addict and can attest to the effectiveness of this supplement. It definitely helped curb those mid-afternoon sugar cravings once my caffeine wore off, helping me develop a healthier habit in the afternoons without relying on sugar.” —ASHLEY CORNETT, VIOLET GREY Beauty Editor


With testers thoroughly impressed, and STAFFERS sporting new healthy habits, The Nue Co.’s Sugar Stress is officially VIOLET CODE APPROVED and has earned a place on THE SHELVES and in our Wellness and Supplements edits.


The VIOLET CODE is a process and set of standards by which VIOLET GREY’s Committee of Industry Experts separate hero products from the tens of thousands of options available to you on the market. The result is a curation that is truly the best in beauty from those who know best.
