Reducose® triggers a cascade of effects that are beneficial to maintaining overall metabolic health. These include healthier blood glucose and blood insulin responses after eating, increased satiety, support for maintaining a healthy weight and body composition, a healthy microbiome, and support for healthy blood lipids. Reducose® can also help improve sports performance and promote longevity.

Reducose® is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a wide range of applications, including food and beverages, dietary supplements, medical foods, and sports nutrition. It is vegetarian, kosher, and clean label friendly. It has approvals for use in different applications in the USA, China, Europe, India, and many
ASEAN countries.

Scientific Support

Thanks to the extensive body of scientific evidence supporting Reducose®, it is also possible to use the art. 13.1 botanical on-hold claim for products containing a daily dose of 200mg-250mg of Reducose®.

Reducose® is backed by 9 human clinical studies demonstrating that it works immediately and significantly, reducing the post-prandial blood sugar and insulin responses by up to 40%. Consumers can both feel its immediate satiety effects as well as see the benefits ‘live’ on Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs). 

These CGMs are becoming more mainstream as healthy biohackers and athletes wear them and companies like Apple are working on bringing this tech to smart watches. This will open the market for ‘healthy blood glucose’ in a big way including to people who are healthy and want to have better control over their blood sugar roller coaster.

Reducose – In Summary:

  • Works immediately – up to 40% lower post meal blood sugar & insulin response*
  • Small dose efficacy supported by 9 human clinical studies† 
  • Consumers can feel the satiety and sustained energy benefits
  • Efficacy can be measured and tracked on Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM)†
