Chlorogenic acid found in green coffee bean extract has been clinically shown to limit dangerous after-meal glucose surges. 1-3 But some aging individuals may need additional support for healthy glucose control, body weight, and resting metabolic rate.
Life Extension® has enhanced its existing glucose control and weight management formulas to make this possible. These innovative nutrient blends give you a comprehensive set of multi-targeted approaches to metabolic wellness.
CoffeeGenic™ Green Coffee Extract with Glucose Control Complex contains 200 mg of CoffeeGenic™ Green Coffee along with five ingredients formulated to help support healthy blood glucose levels already within normal range. Take one capsule before most meals to obtain the following nutrients in addition to Green Coffee Bean extract:
•InSea2®, a proprietary form of seaweed extract that blocks the action of glucosidase and amylase, enzymes used to break down carbohydrates into glucose, facilitating its transport into the bloodstream. In laboratory animal studies, InSea2® reduced after-meal fluctuations in blood sugar by up to 90% when compared to nonsupplemented animals and reduced blood levels by as much as 40%. 4
•Chromium optimized with standardized extract of Indian gooseberry and a proprietary form of an adaptogen called shilajit. The state-of-the-art Crominex® 3+ complex also supports healthy cellular glucose utilization. 5-9
•Integra-Lean® African Mango (Irvingia gabonensis) extract helps slow the rate of carbohydrate absorption from the intestines, thereby reducing the caloric impact of starchy and sugary foods. 10 It also moderates glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme activity to reduce the amount of ingested starches that are converted to triglycerides and stored as fat.
•Green tea extract to boost resting metabolic rate and inhibit genes involved in adipogenesis.
•Iodine is a trace element involved in the production of thyroid hormones primarily responsible for regulating metabolism, thereby promoting healthy glucose absorption into cells, where it is used to produce energy.
