These claims are associated with a daily intake of 250 to 1000 mg of InSea2, thus offering ample flexibility for combination with other ingredients and differentiation in the marketplace.
“This approval means that our Canadian clients and prospects can expect that the raw material they buy from us will elicit strong benefits when used in the right amount and under the right conditions,” said Jocelyn Bérubé, Scientific Director at innoVactiv. “Now, our customers will know that they can incorporate InSea2 and expect to have claims that will resonate with consumers.”
There has been a lot of recent attention on the presence of unnecessary added sugars in our diet. “As a critical component of metabolic syndrome, maintaining healthy blood sugar should be at the core of any health-promoting strategy,” said Patrice Dionne, CEO of innoVactiv. “Formulating dietary supplements with InSea2 offers a convenient and effective option for those seeking help with their blood sugar level.”
Dual-action InSea2 is the only ingredient on the market able to slow down digestion of both starch and table sugar, thus limiting the size of the normal post-meal glycemic response. Human data demonstrates that InSea2 reduces the post-meal rise in blood glucose by 48% after a starch meal, and by 39% after a table sugar drink, while reducing insulin and improving insulin sensitivity. InSea2 can be easily incorporated in capsules, tablets, drinks and as part of functional foods.
