The active principles of Metaglucid ®, natural food supplement, help to regulate blood sugars.
Gymnema, Bitter melon, Mulberry and Cinnamon act positively on the carbohydrate metabolism. Chromium contributes to maintain normal levels of glucose in the blood.
Gymnema silvestre: it reduces the sugar cravings as it suppresses the perception of sweet taste and reduces the absorption of glucose in the gut. Scientific studies showed a reduction of the glycemia in subjects, insulin-dependent or not, with glycemic disorders.
Bitter melon: it contains bitter active principles, such as Charantin, that have a hypoglycemic effect. Studies have shown a particular efficacy in the decreasing of serious glycemia and an improvement in glucose tolerance.
White Mulberry: it contains sugar-mimetic substances, such as deoxynojirimycin, that can inhibit the alpha-glucosidase and other enzymes of the glucydic metabolism, such as maltase, sucrase and trelase, that reduce the absorption of glucose. It also reduces the increase of postprandial glycemic values, with a decrease of hunger and a stabilization of body weight.
Cinnamon: recent studies highlighted that it has an ipoglycemic effect.
Banaba: or Lagerstroemia, is a plant originating in Asia. The main responsible of its therapeutic effect is the corosolic acid that stimulates the transportation of glucose within the cells.
