Supplement May Help With Insulin, Blood Glucose Levels After High Glycemic Index Meal

High glucose levels after a meal can impair glycemic control and contribute to the development of pre-diabetes and diabetes. A recent study suggests that a supplement derived from white mulberry, white bean, and green coffee may help reduce glucose and insulin spikes following a high glycemic index meal.


Participants in the study included 150 healthy people who consumed either a supplement containing 600 mg of white mulberry extract, 1,200 mg of white bean extract, and 400 mg of green coffee extract, or a placebo before five different standardized meals. The meals were: a soda and popcorn; breakfast cereal with vanilla milk; a raspberry muffin and blueberry yogurt; french fries with ketchup; and cheese pasta.


The researchers found that the supplement was associated with lower blood glucose and insulin levels approximately 20 to 35 minutes after the meals, when compared with the placebo. However, levels were similar between the groups when they were measured at longer times after the meals.


In addition, fewer episodes of postprandial reactive hypoglycemia were noted in the supplement group.


Researchers from the Medical University of Bialystok in Poland conducted the study. It was published on July 25, 2018, in Nutrients.
