Large blood glucose fluctuations can have negative cognitive impacts after meals causing sleepiness and poor concentration. These post-lunch dips in energy can impact work performance by reducing productivity and quality while increasing risk of errors and accidents. This well-known phenomenon originates from several causes, including the composition of foods consumed during lunchtime.
Brain and sugar, a love-hate relationship
Brain neurons are known to derive their energy solely from glucose. Although it seems that more glucose would be better for our brain, recent research indicates that foods inducing large blood glucose fluctuations can have negative cognitive impacts by creating a chemical imbalance in amino acids leading to the production of the same brain chemicals involved in sleep induction. This phenomenon of sleep induction combined with hypoglycemia caused by excess glucose can make the brain work less efficiently. Variations in blood glucose can be so intense that several “windows” where blood glucose transiently dips below fasting level may occur. When glucose goes low, so does the activity in our brain!
InSea2® prevents unwanted fluctuations in blood glucose that occur after a meal. In one clinical study, a single intake of InSea2® was able to preserve optimal cognitive function after a high-carb breakfast while subjects taking placebo saw a significant dip in their cognitive performances. Subjects taking InSea2® were also less likely to commit errors by 15% compared to subjects on placebo.
InSea2® is a unique and natural ingredient that helps support healthy blood glucose levels and maintain optimal insulin functions by slowing down starch and sugar absorption.†More information
High carb intake makes it a challenge in managing weight. The good news; InSea2® can help keep blood glucose under control to facilitate reaching weight loss or weight maintenance goals.†More information
