Glycolog is a modern and revolutionary product from Blackstone Labs. Thanks to a new blend of ingredients like bitter melon, chromium, R-alpha-lipoic acid, gymnemic acid and cinnamon extract, Glycolog makes your pancreas works for you and encourages your body to use insulin as an anabolic hormone, not just as the storage one. What is more, the content of bioperine and cyclodextrins affects better bioavailability and action of other components that makes Glycolog a complete product.

Carbohydrates are perceived often by fitness fanatics or people striving to get their dream body as a sort of dangerous, but essential part of their diets. There are many ways of the intake of carbohydrates for sports and body goals (low-carb, carb-loading, carb-cycling) and there is a lot of talk about it. So what is their impact on the appearance and performance of our bodies?

When you eat carbohydrates, pancreatic β cells produce and secrete insulin which is a storage hormone. Spiked insulin levels in the body can be used in your favour since this hormone is considered to be the most anabolic in the body. It is responsible for the uptake of glucose and amino acids, which in turn consequently forms glycogen and skeletal muscle tissue (i.e. GAINZ). Here comes Glycolog which can help control enzymes responsible for the amount of glycogen and amino acids added to the existing muscle tissue.  

Chromium polynicotinate is a combination of chromium with vitamin B3. Proven biological significance of chromium is the ability to maintain proper blood sugar levels. The element affects the metabolism of glucose and fats and may be helpful in controlling body weight. It has been shown in several studies that supplementation with chromium contributed to the reduction of fat in the body and improved body composition.

The extract fromGymnema Sylvestre contains gymnemic acid. Studies suggest that this acid has hypoglycemic properties which act through several possible mechanisms, including a reduction in the uptake of glucose in the small intestine, improvement of glycolysis, glyco- and gluconeogenesis and the stimulation of insulin secretion.

Bitter melon is used in supporting the treatment of type II diabetes. Charantin, alcaloids and proteins in the fruit have the capacity to regulate blood glucose levels. They are said to produce a similar effect to insulin, which consists in storing glycogen in muscles and liver and stimulating the activity and secretion of this hormone. Furthermore, the bitter melon extract can affect the increase of physical capacity in active people and promote differentiation of muscle cells.

Studies show that the compounds contained in the plant activate the AMPK enzyme which stimulates glucose uptake, oxidation of fatty acids in muscles and secretion of insulin by  pancreatic cells.

Substances in the extract from cinnamon bark may stimulate insulin receptors and inhibit an enzyme that deactivates them. In this way, it is possible to increase the capacity for the use of glucose by cells and improve their sensitivity to insulin activity. The latest research shows that consuming half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day significantly reduces glucose levels in the blood of diabetics.

R-ALA (R-alpha lipoic acid) is a form of lipoic acid (ALA) naturally synthesised by the human body. Its sodium salt form is much more bioavailable and its concentration rises faster and even from 10 to 30 times more than a pure form of this acid. The efficacy has been proven in numerous studies which indicate that it:
– increases glucose transport and its metabolism in muscle cells;
– boosts metabolic rate and lowers the age-related increase of body fat mass;
– mimics the effect of insulin on glucose absorption in insulin-resistant cells and can help to restore the availability of glucose in tissues like skeletal muscles;
– prevents hyperglycemia and lowers insulin levels;
– can prevent and cure diabetes and some of its complications.

Bioperine is a standardised extract from black pepper, which is a source of piperine. It has been proven in studies that it affects the bioavailability of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, plant substances) by stimulating the secretion of digestive juices. Thanks to this, all consumed food ingredients can be used in a more optimum way.

Berberine is alleged to have numerous properties promoting weight loss. It has been observed that its consumption may cause: improved insulin sensitivity and its increased secretion, decreased glucose production in the liver and increased lipolysis. Studies on humans have confirmed its positive effect on the blood lipid profile and weight loss.

When complexed with berberine, cyclodextrins facilitate the gastrointestinal absorption of water-insoluble drugs administered orally. They increase their bioavailability and make the active substance of a drug gastro-resistent.

The supplement is intended for all who want to change their look from the proverbial elephant in the room to a huge mass of lean muscles. It can also be used in the prevention and treatment of a mild form of type II diabetes, and among people who want to improve tissue sensitivity to insulin.

Chromium

Information


Chromium (chemical element from transition group of the chromium, chemically active) is actively involved in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It comes in the easily assimilable organic form and inorganic. Along with insulin, as a component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), is used in insulin-dependent diabetes treatment, insulin involved in the metabolism of glucose in t proteins transport. Activator of enzymes involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol. Available in animal origin products (liver, veal, chicken, turkey meat, oysters) and plant-origin (bananas, broccoli, cereal, wheat germ, spinach). Supplements containing chromium are recommended for fat loss (also thermogenic), and improving the functioning of the body. The sports supplementation used chromium in the form of mono-preparations or in the form of vitamin-mineral minerals supplements.
Chromium deficiency results in impaired glucose, reducing the insulin sensitivity. It causes a decrease in immunity and endurance of the body. It may be a cause of coronary heart disease. Sometimes it causes neurological disorders.
Dosage: A varied diet prevents from the deficiency of chromium in the body.

Dosage: The recommended dose of 50-150 mg per day.

 

Chromium polynicotinate

Information

Chromium polynicotinate, is an organic chemical compound made from the combination of trivalent chromium with vitamin PP (niacin, vitamin B3) included in the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), synthesized in the liver and increasing functional properties of insulin. Polynicotinate chromium has stabilizing effect on blood pressure. It has thermogenic potential, allowing for decreased appetite (especially for sweets), reduces the risk of developing diabetes, keeps the body in good physical condition. In the dietary supplementation, polynicotinate chromium is used in programs to reduce body fat and improve body composition, it is in the form of mono-preparation supplement and is a component of weight loss preparations (thermogenic), and vitamin and mineralizing supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Dosage: 50 - 150ug / 24

Sodium

Information

Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.


 

Bioperine

Information

Bioperine - a black pepper extract, which is a source of plant alkaloid – piperine, enhancing secretion of digestive juices, affecting the increase of the availability of food (and other chemicals) and regulating the digestive tract. Through the access to food and chemicals, it indirectly influences the development of muscle tissue and increases the exercise capacity (psychophysical). There has been a positive effect on the immune system and the intensification of the lipolysis processes observed. Available in the form of mono-preparations and as a component of supplements and nutrients.
Dosage: 5-10 mg per day.
