How do Myo-Inositol & Probiotics help to maintain healthy blood glucose levels?

What is myo-inositol?

Myo-inositol is naturally found in animal and plant cells.

Emerging research suggests myo-inositol supplementation may help to reduce the risk of developing gestational diabetes, especially if you’re at high risk4. It can improve the capacity of tissues (such as muscles and fat tissues) to absorb the glucose from your blood into the cells where it can provide energy.


 

What are probiotics?

They are live microorganisms which can confer a health benefit on the human body when ingested. The most commonly used probiotics are:

Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium

Supplementation with certain strains of probiotics may help balance the bacteria in your digestive tract and there is some evidence to suggest specific types of probiotics may have a role to help maintain blood glucose level.
