InSea2® – A unique dual action glucose optimizer.
Diabetes mellitus is a heterogeneous metabolic disorder characterized by the presence of hyperglycemia due to impairment of insulin secretion, defective insulin action or both. The chronic hyperglycemia of diabetes is associated with relatively specific long-term microvascular complications affecting the eyes, kidneys and nerves, as well as an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. The majority of cases of diabetes can be classified into 2 categories: type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, although some cases are difficult to classify. Type 2 diabetes is a disease in which your body cannot make enough insulin, or your body does not properly use the insulin it makes. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body to control the level of sugar in your blood. As a result, glucose (sugar) builds up in your blood instead of being used for energy. If left unmanaged, the excess sugar in your blood can eventually cause problems and lead to serious health complications. Type 2 diabetes can sometimes be managed with healthy eating and regular exercise alone, but may also require medications or insulin. Maintenance of blood glucose is one of the cornerstones of our health.
InSea2® is a unique and natural ingredient that helps support healthy blood glucose levels and maintain optimal insulin functions by slowing down starch and sugar absorption. Most carbohydrates come in a form that cannot be assimilated straight away. This is why the human digestive system uses enzymes to convert these carbs into glucose, the form of carbs that enters the bloodstream and nourishes body cells. This digestive process needs to be repeated meal after meal to ensure optimal body functions. InSea2® is a natural dual action α-amylase and α-glucosidase inhibitor, two key enzymes involved in the digestion and assimilation of starch and sugar. InSea2® thus reduces the glycemic stress that follows a meal as well as the associated insulin peak, and helps sustain healthy insulin sensitivity. By using InSea2® before each meal, carbs are converted into glucose at a much slower pace, reducing the glycemic stress and generating immediate and long-term health benefits. And moreover, unlike other ingredients that takes weeks or months to have an effect you can feel, InSea2® works immediately upon first use!
Clinical studies show that InSea2® can reduce post-meal blood glucose levels by 48,3%, insulin levels by 12,1% and improve insulin sensitivity by 7,9% immediately upon the first use of the product. In addition to its immediate effects, InSea2® also provides long term benefits on glycemic health when taken on a daily basis. In a recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial performed over a six-month period, InSea2® showed tremendous potential to preserve long term optimal glycemic health in challenged individuals, with most subjects improving or even reverting to an optimal glycemic state. In the current context of high consumption of toxic added sugars, reducing unwanted large fluctuations in blood glucose and insulin after a meal is a strong ally in maintaining long-term glycemic health. Even in absence of diabetes, large blood glucose fluctuations are generated every day by our diet, rich in added sugars. “Fluctuations” means that shortly after a high-carb meal, blood glucose will reach levels so high that glucose itself has toxic impacts on our body through glycation or by triggering oxidative stress. Glycation and oxidative stress create direct damages to DNA, proteins, and lipids. “Fluctuations” also means that high blood glucose levels generate a large insulin release that will in turn induce a steep decline in blood glucose a few hours later, reaching hypoglycemic levels. These fluctuations are responsible for the extensive consequences associated with poor blood glucose control. The exceptional quality of InSea2 starts with wild brown seaweeds harvested in the clear waters of the North Atlantic Ocean than followed by a green an sustainable extraction process that concentrates polyphenols in their native conformation, preserving their enzymes- blocking capacity to help maintain healthy blood glucose levels and optimize the bodys energy management after a meal.
InSea2 has also a strong antioxidant potency to protect agains free redical damages and accelerated aging.
