Studies in humans have proven just as impressive. In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, a group of maturing individuals (average age 61) taking 500 mg per day of the cinnamon extract contained in the new CinSulin® formula experienced an average decline of 12 mg/dL in fasting blood glucose after only two months. This novel cinnamon extract also produced a significant decrease in after-meal glucose spikes (an average of 32 mg/dL) after ingestion of 75 g of carbohydrates!
An objective of those who practice calorie restriction is to maintain fasting glucose levels at around 80 mg/dL of blood and after-meal glucose spikes to no greater than 40 mg/dL. CinSulin® may help more longevity enthusiasts accomplish their glucose control objective.
The danger with cinnamon is the presence of naturally occurring, toxic fat-soluble compounds known as aldehydes. Life Extension® has identified a highly purified “type-A” water-soluble cinnamon extract using a patented process that eliminates these dangerous toxins.
Researchers have known of the many health benefits of seaweed extracts for years. Only recently has it come to light that a proprietary form of seaweed extract called InSea2™ blocks the action of glucosidase and amylase—enzymes your body uses to break down carbohydrates into glucose, facilitating its transport into the bloodstream.
Derived from brown seaweed and bladderwrack, a single 500 mg dose of this proprietary compound triggered a 48.3% decline in after-meal blood sugar spikes in a recent double-blind, placebo controlled trial.
Long known for its role in maintaining healthy glucose metabolism, chromium has been optimized with standardized extract of Indian gooseberry and a proprietary form of the adaptogen shilajit. The name of this most advanced chromium complex is Crominex® 3+. The Crominex® 3+ complex helps support:
- Normal cellular glucose absorption
- Healthy endothelial function
- Healthy lipid and triglyceride levels
- Normal cellular energy production
Combined with CinSulin® and Insea2™, the result is an unrivalled formula that affords optimal support for healthy glucose metabolism in aging individuals.
