GlycemicPro™ Transglucosidase
60 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number: 01731

Hundreds of studies document the importance of protecting against blood glucose surges.1 What the public doesn’t realize is that a huge source of blood sugar emanates from dietary starch.2,3 This includes bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice. But even so-called healthy carbohydrates like whole-grain bread and brown rice can induce undesirable glucose spikes.4

In a breakthrough development, scientists have shown that an enzyme called transglucosidase converts starches into prebiotic fiber within your own digestive tract.5,6 Consuming this enzyme with starchy meals helps avoid the flood of glucose into the bloodstream that results from eating carbohydrates.

Published studies show that transglucosidase limits the amount of sugar released from starch, especially in the critical after-meal period. It does this by converting dietary starch into a beneficial indigestible prebiotic fiber.5 Transglucosidase has been demonstrated in humans to reduce the level of rapidly digested starch in a carbohydrate food item by 31%.7 This helps maintain healthy blood glucose, cholesterol, and insulin levels for those whose levels are already in the normal range.8-11

Each vegetarian capsule of the new GlycemicPro™ Transglucosidase contains a full 450,000 TG (transglucosidase activity units) of transglucosidase. Just one capsule taken with starch-containing meals helps limit the release of sugar from starch. Those who consume a low-starch diet may need to take only one GlycemicPro™ Transglucosidase capsule daily with their starch-containing meal.

      Comments about Life Extension GlycemicPro™ Transglucosidase, 60 vegetarian capsules:

      I have been taking this product for approximately 6 months and it is wonderful. If I eat starch foods, deserts, etc. usually I take from 2-3 capsules with that meal. I didn't expected to loss weight but I did. My weight is 113 lb. My concern was really being able to control my sugar.
      Now my sugar in the morning is 85-89. Thank you Life Extension for such a wonderful product.

            I use this so that I can consume some grain products in connection with a low carb/low calorie diet. It does what it says it does. I'm very pleased. Have been using it 4 months.

                  May be involved with high glycemic "good for you" even organic pasta, sprouted bread. carrots, brown rice, etc into fiber. I think it increased the quantiy and quality of my fecal waste after meals.
