Blocks absorption of starch, reduces absorption of glucose, improves sensitivity to insulin and reduces oxidative stress with a powerful protective effect on the liver.
Significantly improves (up to 20 times in vitro) glucose metabolis and activates enzymes which stimulate insulin receptors and inhibit enzymes which de-activate them. It also improves metabolism of glucose and of lipids in vivo and reduce triglycerides, total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol in vivo, according to studies conducted by the US Dept of Agriculture.
Improves insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetics and reduces blood glucose and insulin levels.
