What does it do?
GlucoControl significantly lowers the glucose spike that comes after eating meals by temporarily slowing down digestion (including the digestion of monosaccharides). The effect of this can be seen here in Figure 1:
Endocrinologists, Dietitians and GP’s all agree that it is important for people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes to consume foods that produce lower post-meal glucose spikes. Along with medication, optimal portion sizes and exercise, glycemic control is a fundamental part of an overall strategy to prevent and manage type 2 diabetes.
The Control in Figure 1 (a standard high-GI meal of 2 slices of white bread with jam and coffee/tea) contains 50g of available carbohydrate.
