Put Glucose Where It Belongs…in the Muscle!
Perfecting the balancing act of carb utilization and storage depends largely on insulin sensitivity and the effectiveness with which sugars are metabolized. With the rich assortment of ingredients found in the GLUCO FX formula, the body is primed to properly absorb and store carbohydrate-rich foods. The result? Excess glucose is eliminated and the glucose that does make it into circulation can be properly stored and utilized for energy purposes; not spilled over and converted to body fat. No matter how you consume your carbs, GLUCO FX puts glucose in its place.
How does GLUCO FX work to produce its unparalleled advantages and what can it’s combined ingredients do for you? Let’s take a look at what this innovative new product does and its science-supported ingredients.
It’s called super for a reason. Super Berberine (Berberine Cyclodextrin) is an alkaloid extracted from various plants. It has been tested in numerous studies and found to be ultra-effective as a glucose disposal agent. Among its many benefits is its ability to decrease insulin resistance, increase glycolysis (the breakdown of sugar in cells for energy), decrease sugar production in the liver, increase beneficial gut bacteria and slow the breakdown of carbohydrates in the small intestine. 4, 12, 18 One 12-week study found that obese individuals who took the recommended dose of Super Berberine three times daily lost an average of five pounds, including a 3.6% reduction in body fat! 5
Chromium helps the body break down and absorb carbohydrates, fats and protein. Chromium supplements are sometimes used to help control blood sugar, provide relief from metabolic syndrome, control body weight and enhance muscle mass.
An additional ingredient in GLUCO FX, the potent antioxidant and inflammation-fighter Maqui Berry, also enhances the way in which carbs are used for energy, with one clinical study suggesting that Maqui Berry may help lower blood sugar in people with pre-diabetes. 1, 10 Furthermore, a large population study showed that diets high in compounds called anthocyanins (found in large numbers in Maqui Berries) were linked to a significantly reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. 20
GLUCO FX also features a potent dose of pomegranate, which is known to some as the antidiabetic fruit. Pomegranate is not only very high in antioxidants, but has also been shown to aid blood sugar management by correcting insulin resistance to reduce circulating blood sugar levels. 2
Banaba Leaf Extract
With over 40 beneficial compounds, including corosolic acid, banaba leaf extract greatly assists this process by helping to keep blood sugar levels in check – notably by shuttling glucose into muscle cells (and away from fat cells), where the sugars can be used to power intensive weight training sessions. 17 It does this by activating insulin receptors on muscle tissue, a mechanism that automatically lowers blood glucose levels. 6, 7, 13, 14, 15
Banaba inhibits fat cell production resulting from caloric overconsumption. Important for bodybuilders who want full, round muscle bellies and ample training energy is Banaba’s ability to increase the expression and activation of GLUT-4, a transporter protein that allows glucose to be absorbed into the cells of the body. 3, 11
GLUCO FX also features the extensively-researched and nutrient-dense Loquat Extract (Standardized for Maslinic Acid), a plant-compound-packed fruit that has been shown to improve metabolic health by reducing blood triglycerides, blood sugar and excess insulin. 19 Used traditionally to treat high blood sugar, Loquat Extract has shown great promise as a natural alternative to improving metabolic conditions such as diabetes. 9, 16
Gymnema Sylvestre (75% Gymnemic Shrubs)
Gymnema Sylvestre effectively soaks up excess glucose and shuttles it where it belongs. One of its primary active components, gymnemic acid, is known for suppressing cravings for sweet foods by blocking the sugar receptors on the taste buds. 8 Indeed, study subjects who received Gymnema Sylvestre were found to have less appetite for sweet foods at subsequent meals and were more likely to limit their food intake. 2
The Insulin Advantage
As mentioned earlier, GLUCO FX assists fat burning and muscle building in various ways. For muscle building specifically, GLUCO FX renders the body more insulin sensitive. This increases the uptake of vital amino acids into muscle cells to fully induce muscle protein synthesis, the real key to unlocking massive gains and fuelling muscle growth.
How to Stack GLUCO FX
In addition to consuming GLUCO FX with proven muscle builders such as ISOFLEX and CARBION+, GLUCO FX can also be perfectly paired with superior amino acid products, such as MUSCLEAA and AMINOCORE. Stacking AMINOCORE and MUSCLEAA with GLUCO FX will fully maximize muscle protein synthesis, optimizing the many benefits of GLUCO FX. 21, 22, 23
The GLUCO FX Difference
While there are many glucose disposal agent products on the market, GLUCO FX is scientifically proven to achieve results. GLUCO FX is the only fuel your body needs to manage blood sugar levels enabling you to build a ripped, shredded physique.
