Effects of a Dietary Supplement Containing L-Arabinose and Chromium Picolinate on Blood Glucose and Insulin

2014-08-27 03:14:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study was designed to examine changes in capillary blood glucose and venous insulin levels after a 70 gram oral sucrose challenge with and without simultaneous consumption of a dietary supplement containing L-Arabinose and a patented version of chromium (LA-Cr).

Description

This study concluded that consumption of the LA-Cr supplement in conjunction with a 70-gram sucrose challenge led to a significant reduction of capillary blood glucose and venous insulin as compared to the sucrose challenge without the LA-Cr supplement. This finding may provide an important tool to reduce the adverse effects associated with elevated glucose and insulin levels.
