Supports Metabolic Wellnessâ€
â€ This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Result may vary.
Excess ingestion of fiber-poor carbohydrates in the diet, like sugar and white flour, contribute to surplus body fat by rapidly increasing blood sugar and by converting to triglycerides that bloat fat cells. Compounds that slow the rate of complex and simple carbohydrate breakdown and absorption can be important components of a weight management program.
Natural Glucose Absorption Control contains a blend of Phase 3 Sucrase Inhibitor L-arabinose and Chromium GlycoProtein Matrix, and InSea2 (brown seaweeds).
Sucrase is an enzyme that breaks down sucrose in the digestive tract for absorption into the bloodstream. Phase 3 contains a substance found in plants called L-arabinose that functions through its effects on sucrase digestion and works synergistically with chromium to support healthy insulin and blood sugar levels. L-arabinose targets the sucrase enzyme, helping to delay the rapid rise in blood sugar associated with sucrose consumption. Chromium is a critical micronutrient now widely recognized to play a vital role in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in those within normal levels when used as part of a healthy diet.
The patented seaweed extract (InSea2) has demonstrated effects upon both alpha-glucosidase and alpha-amylase. Alpha-glucosidase enables carbohydrate absorption by helping to break down simple carbohydrates into glucose. Alpha-amylase is an enzyme that helps with the breakdown of large carbohydrate molecules like starch into glucose polymers (linked chains of glucose molecules). These simple sugars are then broken down to glucose by the alpha-glucosidase enzyme.
When given to laboratory animals, this seaweed extract reduced after-meal (postprandial) fluctuations in blood sugar by up to 90% compared with non-supplemented animals. Equally impressive were insulin reductions as much as 40% in the animals supplemented with InSea2.
In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, a single dose of 500 mg per day of this same compound significantly increased insulin sensitivity while inducing a 48.3% decline in postprandial (after-meal) glucose levels in healthy individuals.
InSea2 contains the trace element iodine. Iodine is involved in the production of the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). T3 and T4 are primarily responsible for regulating metabolism. The thyroid gland actively absorbs iodine from the blood to make and release these hormones.
By working on multiple pathways, using innovative natural substances, individuals can help mitigate the factors of insulin insensitivity that often results from aging.
