GLUCOSE CONTROL 4 HIM+
GLUCOSE CONTROL 4HIM+ helps maintain the correct postprandial blood glucose values as well as physical and mental wellbeing. Keeping your blood glucose levels as stable as possible is one of the main objectives to be achieved when you want to lose weight or maintain your waistline.
GLUCOSE CONTROL 4HIM+ contains the most innovative ingredients, proven to achieve the desired result. Fenumannans® (Trigonella foenum graecum) is fenugreek titrated with 60% galactomannan. Fenugreek seeds contain 4-hydroxyisoleucine, which proved to be able to improve blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. In addition, Fenumannans® can inhibit the amylase and sucrase enzymes, involved in carbohydrate metabolism. This is due to the fibres contained that, through their actions, diminish the availability of glucose in the blood. Fenugreek also contains saponin, diosgenin, yamogenin that can lower the levels of both cholesterol and triglycerides. These play their action by binding to blood cholesterol and thus reducing its absorption.
Additional component of GLUCOSE CONTROL 4HER+ is Momordicin®, which exploits the properties of the Momordica fruit (Momordica Charantia L.). Momordicin® contains steroidal saponins and insulin-like-acting peptides, which are the substances responsible for its hypoglycaemic action. Several studies have shown that taking Momordica helps lower blood glucose levels and improve glucose tolerance. Momordica charantia is a plant that belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family. It takes its name from the jagged shape of the leaves, as momordica means ‘to bite’. As it is commonly used in folk medicine in many countries, Momordica charantia is an effective remedy in many cases, such as hyperlipidemia, microbial infections, spleen and liver diseases, rheumatism and gout. It is also used as a tonic, as a bitter liquid extract, as a stomachic, but mostly as an antidiabetic. A first in vitro study shows that the saponins obtained from the alcohol extract of the dried fruit stimulate insulin secretion (Keller et al., 2011). A more recent study showed that triterpenes, obtained from acid hydrolysis of alcohol extract of the dried fruit, inhibit the activity of a protein (PTP1B) that deactivates the insulin receptor. Another study in vivo showed an increase in sensitivity to insulin and an increased glucose tolerance after treatment with 200 mg/kg/day of aqueous extract of M.charantia in obese/T2D mice. (Wang et al., 2014). Therefore, we can confirm its role as a great cholesterol-lowering and hypoglycaemic substance, particularly useful if you want to lose weight.
In addition to the many known properties, ginseng has also a considerable hypoglycaemic action. The active ingredients that are attributed the property to increase the production of insulin and reduce blood glucose, are panaxans and ginsenosides. Early studies suggest that the action of ginseng on blood glucose is given above all by an increase in insulin and the slowdown in the death of beta pancreatic cells. It seems that ginseng is effective both on an empty stomach and after a meal. Cinnamon acts on insulin receptors, favouring their action and then transport of the glucose from the blood to tissues. Moreover, it stimulates the synthesis of molecules capable of carrying sugar and modulates the hepatic glucose metabolism, through the synthesis of certain enzymes. Apart from having a hypoglycaemic action, cinnamon can lower the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, which are essential for cardiovascular well-being. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has sown that the use of cinnamon during a meal can slow the rate of gastric emptying and reduce the increase in postprandial blood glucose. 14 healthy subjects, with blood sugar levels in the standard, were involved in a crossover study. After eating 300g of rice pudding or 300g of rice pudding and 6g of cinnamon, the speed of gastric emptying, the postprandial blood glucose level and the sense of satiety were measured. The researchers observed that cinnamon intake significantly lowered the gastric emptying rate and resulted in a significant decrease in the glycaemic rise. To support the properties of cinnamon, chromium picolinate. Already known in the world of diabetics, it is very useful to improve blood glucose and insulin sensitivity and reduce visceral fat.
