NUTREN® GLUCOSMART™ is made from a water extract of white mulberry leaves which contain 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ). 1-DNJ inhibits α-glucosidase (a carbohydrate-digesting enzyme) in the small intestine. This reduces the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates and restricts the rise of blood sugar. Consumption of mulberry leaf extract with sucrose, maltose, or maltodextrin has been shown to reduce the glycaemic index (GI) values of these carbohydrates.
NUTREN® GLUCOSMART™ reduces peak blood glucose and insulin by 40%. It significantly lowered glucose incremental area under the curve (iAUC) by 42% (p = 0.001) and insulin iAUC by 40% (p < 0.001).4 NUTREN® GLUCOSMART™ is also well-tolerated. In a randomised double-blind placebo-controlled study, there were no significant differences in the odds of experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms between those on NUTREN® GLUCOSMART™ and placebo.
NUTREN® GLUCOSMART™ contains the goodness of mulberry leaf extract,1 traditionally known for its intrinsic benefits. It is high in fibre and vitamin D. Simply mix it with your meal and enjoy its natural benefits without altering the taste of your food.
