Cyvex Nutrition confirmed that results from a recent in vivo study involving its branded ingredient Chirositol(TM) have been published in the June 2010 issue of the international peer-reviewed journal Current Bioactive Compounds. Among its findings, the study determined that a three-week administration of Chirositol (95% D-Chiro-Inositol), alone and in combination with manganese sulfate, significantly reduced blood glucose levels in diabetic mellitus-induced rats.
Specifically, results showed that a 12-day oral administration of Chirositol decreased blood glucose levels by a combined 23 percent when compared to the control group, while administration of both Chirositol and manganese sulfate resulted in a combined 40 percent decrease during the same time period. Also of note was the decrease in overall body weight of both male and female rats receiving Chirositol and manganese sulfate, with females exhibiting a 25 percent body weight decrease over the control group, and males 21 percent as measured during the 21-day study period.
"Though D-Chiro-Inositol's positive effect on blood sugar management has been established by more than 30 years of scientific research, we are enthusiastic about this latest study's findings and its implications for helping a wide range of health issues," stated Matt Phillips, President, Cyvex Nutrition. "As worldwide obesity numbers continue to rise, we are seeing a large increase in individuals suffering from type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and glucose intolerance as a result. Our Chirositol ingredient offers a clinical- proven option for those looking to naturally reduce their blood glucose level and overall body weight."
