KetoSports KetoShield Glucose Inhibitor
KetoShield reduces glucose levels in the blood. It does this in two ways - by promoting glucose excretion in the urine and by blocking its absorption in the intestines. Once ingested, carbohydrates are broken down to glucose by the digestive system. Too much glucose can lead to high levels of insulin and result in the storage of body fat. KetoShield, when taken with a meal, controls glucose levels in the blood which stabilizes insulin levels for optimal fat burning. For those attempting to achieve ketosis through a ketogenic diet, Ketoshield may shorten the time it takes for the body to start burning fat and making ketones. KetoShield may also be helpful to those not restricted to low carb diets but hoping to limit carbohydrate impact. KetoShield is best taken three times a day with your largest meals.
Ketoshield should not be taken by people with kidney dysfunctions or by people who are experiencing urinary tract infections. If you are currently using blood glucose lowering medication or any other prescription or over the counter medicine, please consult a physician before use. KetoSports always recommends that you check with a doctor before taking any nutritional supplement product.
SCIENCE BEHIND THE PRODUCT
KetoShield contains the compound Phlorizin. Phlorizin belongs to a family of natural compounds called dihydrochalcones. It is a constituent of apples and other fruits.
Phlorizin has been studied and used to treat diabetes and has a history of use in humans. It’s main mode of action is by inhibiting a class of enzymes called sodium/glucose transporters (SGLTs). These enzymes are present in the kidneys and in the lining of the small intestine. In the kidneys this inhibition leads to increased excretion of glucose in the urine, while in the intestines it leads to decreased absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.
This combination of decreased glucose absorption from food and increased glucose excretion in the urine serves to lower blood glucose levels. Lowering blood glucose will lower insulin levels which will increase the recruitment of fat stores for energy. For people who initiate ketogenic diets, KetoShield may also facilitate the onset of nutritional ketosis via these same mechanisms.
KetoShield is best taken three times a day with meals.
