Prenulin™ blend for support of healthy sugar metabolism

Prenulin™ blend is a combination of l-arabinose and Chromax* chromium picolinate.

benefits

Prenulin™ blend is unique because it works in two ways. It may reduce the breakdown of sucrose from food through l-arabinose action on the sucrase enzyme and may support control of insulin in healthy people through the addition of chromium.

L-arabinose is a monosaccharide found in nonstarch carbohydrate plants like corn. In vitro and animal studies have indicated that the compound may inhibit sucrase action and consequent digestion of sucrose. A dose-response study showed a reduced serum glucose level and serum insulin response to sucrose consumption, indicating that the addition of l-arabinose blocked absorption of the sugar.

advantages

  • can be administered orally in tablets and capsules
  • One small study suggests that chromium picolinate may reduce the risk of insulin resistance, and therefore possibly may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. FDA concludes, however, that the existence of such a relationship between chromium picolinate and either insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes is highly uncertain.
