CARB CONTROL 4 HER+
CARB CONTROL 4HER + is a product created to decrease the absorption of sugars in the gastrointestinal tract.
The careful and continuous research carried out by 4 + NUTRITION into effective and innovative ingredients, has led to the use of ID-alGTM, a mixture of seaweed (Ascpohyllum nodosum) and grape (vitis vinifera L.). The brown seaweed is rich in long-chain sea polyphenols, called phlorotannins. These are able to block more than 50% of the activity of the two main digestive enzymes, lipase and amylase. More precisely, the inhibition of lipase is up to 63% and of amylase 77! It is precisely this inhibition to reduce carbohydrates and assimilation of fats, that are the nutrients responsible for about 85% of the caloric intake. Several clinical studies have confirmed the properties of ID-alGTM, confirming its positive effect on the metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates.
A lower absorption of lipids reduces visceral and abdominal fat as well as body fat, while the reduced carbohydrate assimilation leads to the lowering of glycated haemoglobin and therefore blood glucose.
Furthermore, ID-alGTM contains 80 µg of iodine, known for its positive effect on basal metabolism. According to clinical studies, the effects of ID-alGTM are evident and lasting already after 8 weeks.
Another component of CARB CONTROL 4HER+ is the white mulberry (Morus alba L). A study in the field of diabetology in India (Banu S. et al. Reduction of post-prandial hyperglycemia by mulberry tea in type 2 diabetes patients. Saudi J Bio Sci 2015 Jan; 22 (1): 32-6) involved a group of individuals with type 2 diabetes, to verify the action of mulberry extracts. 90 minutes (time after which it is thought the glycaemic peak occurs) after the consumption of a carbohydrate meal, a mulberry infusion and a teaspoon of sugar, blood glucose values were detected and compared with a group that had not taken the mulberry tea. The results showed that, even if the blood sugar levels had been raised by the carbohydrate-rich meal, they were lower in the group treated with the mulberry. From this the researchers deduced that the mulberry has a role in reducing blood sugar peaks resulting from a meal containing carbohydrates. In fact, the white mulberry can control blood sugar changes, affecting the absorption of sugars. This is done using a substance called deoxinojirimicina, which slows the absorption of sugar and fat in the intestine, preventing the many insulin peaks to occur and thus controlling blood sugar. An additional effect is the anti-hunger, which helps to avoid an overeating condition that would lead to consequent weight gain.
Finally, exclusively for women, Melaslim (Malus domestica Borkh.) titrated with 50% polyphenols and 5% phlorizin. The phlorizin is mainly responsible for the apple hypoglycaemic action. In fact, it acts in the intestine, where it prevents glucose up-take by promoting renal excretion. It has been shown that the phlorizin administered to diabetic rats restores the impaired cellular sensitivity to insulin, normalizing blood glucose. Further studies have reinforced its action of alpha glucosidase enzyme inhibitor, presenting an action mechanism compatible with that of ID-alG ® and white mulberry.
