Certified Naturals™ Glycemic Control Capsules contain the clinically studied natural ingredient InSea2®.
InSea2 is formulated from two brown seaweeds native to the Canadian Maritime provinces. Together in an optimal ratio determined by research, Ascophyllum nodosum and Fucus vesiculosus have been combined and researched for their benefits for glycemic health.
InSea2 Lowers Glucose and Insulin Levels after a Carbohydrate Meal
InSea2 has been shown to slow down the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates and sugar for improved glycemic health. When taken together with a meal containing carbohydrates and sucrose (table sugar), InSea2® inhibits the α-amylase enzyme that breaks down carbs as well as the α-glucosidase enzyme that breaks down complex sugars.
Concentrated polyphenols known as phlorotannins, unique to brown seaweeds, are the micronutrients that inhibit the relevant enzymatic activity. By inhibiting this activity, lesser amounts of carbs and sugars are absorbed, making the digestion of the food slower, allowing the body to better manage glycemic stress.
Patients were given 500 mg of InSea2 or a placebo prior to a high carbohydrate meal. Their blood glucose levels were monitored for a 3-hour period post-meal. InSea2 patients showed a 48% reduction (iAUC) in incremental glucose versus the placebo group. The seaweed combination also demonstrated a 12% reduction in incremental insulin and increased insulin sensitivity by 7.9% compared to the placebo. This study showed that InSea2 effectively reduces glycemic stress in response to carbohydrate ingestion.
Helps support healthy blood glucose levels. Helps to reduce the glycemic index of ingested foods.
Recommended dose: Adults: 2 capsules, once or twice daily. Do not exceed twice daily. Take 30 minutes before a starch containing meal or high glycemic index meal with a glass of water.
