Blackstone Labs GlycoLog
Carbs have gotten a pretty bad rap in recent years. They’ve become outcasts, shunned by everyone from celebrities to soccer moms and even high-level athletes, who need them more than anyone else!
Carbs have been painted as disgusting little vermin that do nothing but make you fat, lazy, and disgusting. The reason is that eating carbs increase insulin, the body’s storage hormone. Insulin can either shuttle carbs into fat or muscle depending on your genetics, and for most individuals, they have poor genetics, which means eating carbs inevitably leads to increased fat.
That’s where Glycolog comes in. It hacks your genetic code to make insulin work for you, not against you. Glycolog acts as a nutrient partitioner, directs those carbs you eat into your muscles and not your adipose tissue.
Using Glycolog means carbs are back on the menu again, and they’re bringing some serious lean gains with them!
Chromium (300mcg) is an essential mineral that helps regulate blood glucose. Chromium is critical to insulin metabolism and therefore a vital component to nutrient uptake in the body.
Gymnema Sylvestre (1g) enhances insulin function to reduce blood sugar. A comprehensive review of the scientific literature on gymnema sylvestre notes it also reduces plasma glucose, leptin levels, body weight, and even body mass index (BMI).
Bitter Melon (500mg) increases glucose uptake and utilization by skeletal muscles as well as reducing formation of glycogen in the liver. Additional research on bitter melon notes in also suppresses inflammation in adipose tissue (fat).
Super Berberine (300mg) lowers blood glucose levels and encourages glucose absorption by muscle cells. Glycolog includes the trademarked Super Berberine for its improved bioavailability over standard berberine supplements.
Cinnamon Bark (250mg) increases insulin activity while simultaneously acting as an insulin mimetic to facilitate glucose transport into skeletal muscle tissue. Cinnamon bark reduces blood sugar, cuts body fat, and increases lean mass.
Sodium R-Lipoate (150mg) is a highly bioavailable form of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). ALA is essential to carbohydrate metabolism and also acts as a powerful antioxidant in the body. It helps lower blood sugar, reduce appetite, and increase energy expenditure.
BioPerine (5mg) can enhance the effectiveness of the blood sugar-lowering compounds in Glycolog by increasing the time they remain active in the bloodstream.
