Natural Glucose Absorption Control Description from Life Extension
This blend of four natural active ingredients is formulated to help support healthy blood glucose (blood sugar) levels in those already within normal range and metabolic wellness. It begins with iodine, a trace element involved in the production of T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine), two thyroid hormones primarily responsible for regulating metabolism.
Chromium is a critical micronutrient recognized for its vital role in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels in those already within normal range when used as part of a healthy diet.
Phase 3 Sucrase Inhibitor is an L-Arabinose and Chromium GlycoProtein Complex. Sucrase is an enzyme that breaks down sucrose to fructose and glucose in the digestive tract for absorption into the bloodstream. Phase 3 contains a phytonutrient called L-Arabinose that affects sucrase digestion and works synergistically with chromium to support healthy blood sugar and insulin levels in those already within normal range.
InSea2 is a proprietary seaweed extract that has demonstrated effects on two digestive enzymes - alpha-amylase, which helps break down starches into glucose molecules, and alpha-glucosidase, which breaks down simple carbohydrates into glucose. In laboratory animal studies, InSea2 reduced after-meal fluctuations in blood sugar by up to 90% when compared to non-supplemented animals... and reduced blood insulin level by as much as 40%.
