When you consume a sugary snack, your body experiences a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. In response, your pancreas releases a large amount of insulin to help bring down the elevated blood sugar levels. However, this sudden surge in insulin can lead to a sharp drop in blood sugar levels, causing cravings for more sugary foods and leading to a vicious cycle of sugar highs and crashes.
A diet high in sugary snacks and refined carbs may speed up aging, raise prediabetes risk (ADA), and lead to health issues like obesity, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol. Both prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are linked to an average 8-year reduction in lifespan (BMJ Journals).
Studies have found that a low GI diet resulted in a 27% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to a high GI diet, a 22% increase in insulin sensitivity, and a 14% lower risk of heart disease. Research has also shown that consuming low GI meals can improve physical endurance and reduce fatigue. High-fiber low GI foods have been linked to a reduced risk of colorectal cancer, as well as weight loss and reductions in waist circumference.
A special blend of science-backed ingredients effectively stabilizes blood sugar. PROMITOR® fiber cuts glucose and insulin responses in half, while anthocyanins (from blueberry extract) reduce clot risk in certain populations. Mulberry leaf extract improves glucose tolerance and lowers insulin levels, and rosemary extract protects against high lipids and blood sugar. This formulation, when combined with protein and Japanese marine collagen, provides sustained energy.
