Clinically proven to reduce the GI (Glycemic index)
What is Starchlite?
Starchlite® is an all-natural extract of white kidney bean (Phaseolus Vulgaris) which has properties of decreasing the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates.
Starchlite® may help to :
May assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program.
May reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches.
Starchlite® decreases the Glycemic index by temporarily inhibiting alpha-amylase, an enzyme present in saliva and also produced by the pancreas. It is responsible for the breakdown of starch into simple sugars that can be absorbed by the organism.
• The caloric impact of sugars resulting from starch digestion is reduced.
• The glycaemia increase is lowered, the GI of the consumed food decreases.
• The possibility of conversion of sugars coming from starch into fat is lessened.
Why do you need Starchlite?
Starchlite® is a natural product already used all over the world by numerous consumers wanting to adopt a low-GI diet (reduction of GI), to control their glycaemia (reduction of glucose impact) or to manage their weight (reduction of caloric impact).
When to use GI low?
Take three (3) GILow capsules (1,200 mg of Starchlite) before your starch rich meal.
Recent research has shown the optimum time to take Starchlite® is just before a starch-rich meal along with 8oz of water. However the studies also showed that Starchlite® could still provide some of its starch “neutralizing” benefits when taken during or just after, a starch-rich meal. One such study demonstrated that Starchlite® could remain effective when a capsule is opened and sprinkled onto food.
GILow CONTAINS Starchlite®
GILow with Starchlite® is an all-natural, non-stimulant white kidney bean extract that is used as an ingredient in a variety of nutritional supplements. It is the first carbohydrate blocker clinically proven in multiple studies to delay the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This in turn reduces the caloric impact of starchy foods, and also lowers the glycemic index.
When used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise GILow Starchlite® may assist in weight control. While there is no such thing as a magic weight control pill, GILow may enable people concerned with weight control and /or blood glucose levels to enjoy carb-rich foods again in moderation.
Starchlite® has been the subject of multiple clinical studies that have proven its safety and effectiveness.
“May assist in weight control when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program,” and “May reduce the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches.”
Warning: Pregnant women and women who breast feed should not use Starchlite®. People who suffer from hypoglycemia should not use Starchlite®. Diabetics and people on medication should consult with their healthcare professional before using any dietary supplements.
