The scariest thing about Halloween isn't ghosts; it's sugar. Sugar in disguise hides in our food in historically high amounts, and not just in Halloween candy. In light of growing evidence affirming sugar as “toxic," this white paper offers timely and relevant information to better understand the physiological impacts of sugar-laden foods, including frequent high blood sugar and insulin peaks. The capacity to maintain both parameters within a healthy range is core to avoiding metabolic syndrome. In light of recent advances in carbohydrate metabolism, dual α-amylase and α-glucosidase inhibitor InSea2® may represent the most significant milestone on the road toward healthy glucose metabolism.
