Glucorein coffee and tea drinks, formulated with chlorogenic acid, are a proprietary medical food designed to decrease intestinal glucose absorption and reduce the rate of liver glycogenolysis in the body.
"I believe the introduction of Glucorein into the daily diet of both pre-diabetics and type 2 diabetics could be one of the most important advances in the treatment of this affliction in the past few decades," said Dr. Adam Landsman, assistant professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School. "Glucorein chlorogenic acid is proven effective in minimizing blood sugar spikes. In combination with a reasonable diet and exerciseunder the supervision of a medical professionalit could eliminate the need for diabetic drugs in many patients."
The Science of Chlorogenic Acid
A significant body of evidence exists which provides clear data on the mechanisms of action at work, the activity of, and impact chlorogenic acids may have with respect to blood glucose management:
G-6-Pase translocase inhibitors such as chlorogenic acid may be useful for the reduction of inappropriately high rates of hepatic glucose output often found in type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetics and obese individuals.
Strong plasma antioxidants, such as chlorogenic acid, may reduce LDL oxidation, positively impacting the quality of life of diabetic patients.
Chlorogenic acid's ability to affect gastrointestinal hormones may delay glucose uptake in the small intestine and shift the site of glucose absorption to more distal parts of the intestine.
Scientific studies have demonstrated that coffee consumption may have an inverse associated risk with developing type 2 diabetes.
Chlorogenic acid has also demonstrated the ability to provide a slimming effect versus a placebo.
