Countless aging Americans find themselves under constant assault from excess glucose calories. Even health-conscious, active people can experience higher-than-desired blood sugar levels as they age. Life Extension now offers an enhanced, all-natural, multipronged approach: CinSulin with InSea2 and Crominex 3+.
Scientists worldwide are excited over the clinically proven power of a novel form of cinnamon to support healthy glucose metabolism.37,38 Scientists at the US Department of Agriculture have been quietly studying it for more than a decade.39,40 Government experts have been amazed by compelling in vitro results documenting its ability to induce a twenty-fold increase in sugar metabolism.41
Studies in humans have proven equally impressive. In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial,42 a group of maturing individuals (average age 61) taking 500 mg per day of the cinnamon extract contained in this 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 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 in other supplements are the presence of naturally occurring, toxic fat-soluble compounds known as aldehydes. Life Extension has identified a highly purified water-soluble cinnamon extract standardized to the bioactive Type-A Polymers 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.43
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 absorption44-50
- Healthy endothelial function51,52
- Healthy lipid and triglyceride levels53-56
- Normal cellular energy production57,58
Combined with CinSulin® and InSea2®, the result is an unrivalled formula that affords optimal support for healthy glucose metabolism in aging individuals.
