WHAT IS PRIMALOG?
Primalog is an advanced glucose disposal agent (GDA) and nutrient partitioning supplement formulated to support improved carbohydrate utilization and storage with the end goal being greater performance, recovery, and growth.*
Chromium is a trace mineral essential to a number of important functions in the body, including cholesterol synthesis and insulin metabolism.*
Basically, insulin requires chromium in order to function properly, and without adequate chromium stores, insulin metabolism suffers as does the uptake and utilization of glucose, amino acids, and fats. This means that protein synthesis may be stunted, hindering muscle recovery and growth*
Research also has shown a link between individuals with type 2 diabetes having lower blood levels of chromium than those without the disease.*
Primalog contains chromium in the form of chromium nicotinate glycinate chelate as opposed to the more commonly used chromium picolinate.*
The reason for using this particular form is research suggests that it is 18x more bioactive than other types of chromium.*
In fact, some animal studies show it’s absorbed and retained 600% more than chromium chloride and 300% more than the frequently used common chromium picolinate!*
Gymnema Sylvestre (1000mg)
Gymnema Sylvestre is a herb native to the central and southern forests of India and Sri Lanka. Also known as cowplant, gymnema has been extensively used in eastern medicine to help support insulin function and reduce diabetes risk.*
Better insulin function promotes stable blood sugar levels, and helps shuttle glucose into skeletal muscles where it can then be used to support energy production and athletic performance.*
A comprehensive review of gymnema sylvestre noted it may also help reduce plasma glucose, leptin levels, body weight and even BMI (body mass index).*
Banaba Extract (500mg)
Banaba, a.k.a. Lagerstroemia, is a well-known plant, largely due to its antidiabetic properties.*
The leaves of the banaba plant are rich in a compound known as corosolic acid, which is believed to induce GLUT4 translocation and subsequently support glucose control.
In case you weren’t aware, GLUT4 is the insulin-responsive glucose transporter gene in the body. Research has shown that a malfunctioning GLUT4 gene may cause insulin resistance in skeletal muscle as well as diabetes.*
Corosolic acid inhibits enzymatic activities of several diabetes-related non-receptor protein tyrosine phosphatases, including PTP1B, which can activate insulin receptor B phosphorylation, making it a viable option for combatting symptoms associated with obesity and diabetes.*
Research also finds that corosolic acid supports glycolysis and reduces gluconeogenesis.
Some research has even shown it’s beneficial for weight loss too, via inhibition of pancreatic lipase enzyme (the enzyme responsible for fat absorption).*
Finally, banaba leaf also has research noting that it may enhance insulin sensitivity and glucose transport, allowing greater glucose control and utilization.*
Berberine HCl (500mg)
Berberine is a fascinating plant that has been documented to possess a wide range of abilities, particularly in regards to its anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic properties.*
The compound has been noted in research to enhance glucose uptake into skeletal muscle via AMPK activation.*
Note: AMPK (5' adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase) is an enzyme that plays a key role in cellular energy balance, and activation of AMPK may increase mitochondrial biogenesis in skeletal muscle cells, reduce fat storage, and improve insulin sensitivity.*
Interestingly enough, berberine also has some data noting it may be able to stimulate glucose uptake into muscle cells by itself even if the cell happens to be insulin resistant.*
Cinnamon is an incredibly popular culinary spice that also exerts a wide range of beneficial biological effects.*
Research notes that cinnamon may help reduce the rate at which glucose enters the body as well as improve glucose utilization within cells.*
Additional studies indicate that cinnamon may help lower blood sugar spikes, fasting glucose and cholesterol levels.*
Various phenolic compounds within cinnamon, such as catechin, epicatechin, and procyanidin have been noted to inhibit the formation of advanced glycation end products.*
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a fatty acid generated by the body and found in the mitochondria of every cell in your body. It is an essential player in energy metabolism and also functions as a powerful antioxidant in the body.*
Research notes that alpha lipoic acid (ALA) may help reduce fasting blood sugar], suppress appetite, and increase energy expenditure.*
AstraGin is a patented blend of highly purified saponins isolated from the Astragalus membranaceous and Panax notoginseng plant.
It has been shown to significantly increase the absorption of various nutrients, including amino acids, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and other dietary supplements, by upregulating the absorption-specific mRNA and transporters, such as SGLT1, CAT1, and GLUT4.
AstraGin also supports a healthy guy by repairing damaged intestinal walls and reducing intestinal submucosa inflammation.*
