Support of sugar metabolism
Food supplement containing organically-grown Coprinus comatus, plant extracts and Chromium.
Micotherapy Glico containing Coprinus comatus is a formulation designed to support carbohydrate metabolism and therefore helps to maintain normal blood glucose levels.
Commonly known as ‘Shaggy mane’ in America and as ‘Ink mushroom’ in Italy, Coprinus comatus is a mushroom that promotes blood glucose reduction and is very useful as a support in conditions of impaired blood glucose control.
- Coprinus whole mushroom
- Gymnema dry extract (titrated at 75% in gymnemic acid)
- Banaba dry extract (titrated at 1% in corosolic acid)
- Rose hip dry extract tit. in vit. C (titrated at 70% in Vit. C)
- Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)
- Chromium picolinate
Properties of the ingredients:
- Gymnema: educes sugar absorption by up to 50%. It improves intracellular glucose metabolism and promotes blood glucose control.
- Banaba: improves the use of glucose by the cells, which helps to reduce blood sugar levels and also fat in the liver.
- Rose hip: is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C. It boosts the body’s defences against infection and is particularly important in situations of impaired blood sugar control.
- Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM): a source of bioavailable sulphur. Sulphur is an important component of the glutathione molecule.
- Chromium picolinate: promotes the anabolic action of insulin and muscle anabolism. It boosts lipid and carbohydrate metabolism and helps regulate blood glucose levels. It reduces the sense of hunger and the craving for sweet foods.
