Guar Gum Fiber
Viscous dietary fibers are effective in maintaining satiety but challenging to apply in normal serving sizes in foods due to their viscosity and required high amounts. Guar gum fiber is a near non-viscous soluble fiber that has been proven effective in providing several physiological benefits. According to a 2016 summary of clinical research on the topic, regular intake of guar gum fiber provided significant sustained post-meal satiation effects and minimized the inter-meal calorie intake by about 20% in normal subjects. The intake of guar gum fiber alone or its combination with protein showed acute satiety effects in normal subjects.
Alpha Linolenic Acid
Flax seeds are a generous source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. The organic flax seeds in GlycemaCORE Whey Protein provide a total of 1.3 g of alpha linolenic acid per scoop, while contributing additional protein, lignans and numerous micronutrients.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant that affects blood sugar metabolism.
Chromium is a critical element in the GTF, a complex shown to be crucial for glucose uptake into the cells.
Vanadyl sulfate stimulates glucose uptake within cells helping to use blood sugar more efficiently and support blood sugar balance already within normal levels.
