Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc. announced that premier health supplement brand, Life Extension Foundation, has launched a sophisticated line of dietary supplements geared to the middle-age population struggling with weight control issues and blood sugar concerns.
Calorie Control Weight Management Formula and Optimized Irvingia with Phase 3 are formulated to support healthy weight loss, while Natural Glucose Absorption Control supports healthy post-prandial glucose management.
“Life Extension is committed to scientifically-validated ingredients for healthy body weight management. We are excited to offer our customers a range of evidence-based, innovative options for metabolic support. Healthy blood sugar management is a critical component of a long-term plan to stay vital and active,” said Steven V. Joyal, MD, scientific affairs & medical development for Life Extension.
According to Mitch Skop, senior director, new product development, Pharmachem, "Life Extension's trio of metabolic-support formulas is likely the most sophisticated—and effective—on the market, especially geared to the Generation X'ers and Baby Boomers who struggle to slim down and keep their blood sugar levels in normal ranges."
Calorie Control Weight Management Formula:This supplement features Phase 2 Carb Controller, a white kidney bean extract that inhibits the amylaseenzyme in the digestive tract. Amylasebreaks down carbohydrates that are then absorbed into the bloodÂstream as glucose. In several placebo-controlled clinical trials, Phase 2 reduced starch digestion and resulted in weight loss.
Optimized Irvingia with Phase 3 Sugar Controller: This formula provides support to reverse the age-related metabolicchanges that predispose middle-aged individuals to weight gain, evenwhen they cut back on caloric intake. It features Phase 3™ Sugar Controller, a patented L-Arabinose compound that functions to adjust sucrase.
“Sugar consumption has increased dramatically over the last two decades,” said Skop, “coinciding with the obesity epidemic and other related health problems. This new supplement will help consumers reduce the digestion of added sugars when used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise.”
Phase 3 works to delay the rapid absorption of sucrose, thus supporting the healthy release of insulin and sugar into the bloodstream in response to sucrose ingestion that typically converts to body fat. The formula also contains Phase 2 which significantly reduced the glycemic index of white bread when it was consumed with 3000 mg of the ingredient in powder form.
Natural Glucose Absorption Control: This dietary supplement is targeted to the millions of middle-aged adults and baby boomers who are concerned about blood sugar levels leading to type II diabetes, and serves as a companion to a fiber-rich, nutrient-dense diet to manage healthy blood sugar levels. It contains Phase 3 Sugar Controller, featuring a blend of L-arabinose and chromium to support healthy blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as healthy glycemic metabolism.
