Hundreds of studies document the importance of protecting against blood glucose surges.1 What the public doesnít 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.
