Garcinia: Reduces Blood Glucose levels

September 9, 2011

Research by Ryu et al  has shown that an extract of Garcinia, which contains high levels of compounds known as Xanthones, has a beneficial pharmacological effect and can elicit reduction of Postprandial blood glucose.  The studies demonstrated that the active ingredients in Garcinia can inhibit alpha-glucosidase which is an enzyme responsible for the breakdown of sugars like maltose.  The results suggest that Garcinia could be extremely useful in controlling weight, blood sugar and related chronic medical conditions.
