Salsulin™: an extract for blood glucose metabolism
Scientists now understand that high-calorie, processed foods contribute to impaired glucose tolerance, which affects blood glucose metabolism, and may lie at the heart of the growing overweight population. Emerging science shows the promise of Salacia oblonga, a traditionally used herbal extract, to provide well-tolerated, cost-effective support for blood glucose metabolism. This paper examines the role of alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, presents the benefits of Salsulin™, a GRAS botanical formulation derived from S. oblonga, and research on Salacia’s efficacy for blood glucose metabolism.
