Insulin is one of the most powerful anabolic hormones in the human body. It is responsible for the metabolism of carbohydrates, and also determines the transformation of fats and proteins. Appropriately high insulin level in the body has a beneficial effect on glycogen production and protein biosynthesis. It may also result in increased physical performance. Thus, regulation of insulin concentration is not only the basis for maintaining health, but also one of the ways to improve sports performance.
The World Anti-Doping Agency considers insulin as an unauthorized doping agent and prohibits its use by healthy people. However, there are a number of substances that help to exploit the anabolic potential of this hormone – these are the so-called insulin mimetics.
Insulin mimetics are substances that mimic the action of the hormone. They include compounds such as alpha-lipoic acid, berberine, certain minerals (e.g. chromium, selenium), Banaba extracts, bitter melon, gurmar, cinnamon bark extract. They can stimulate glucose uptake and regulate such metabolic processes as glycolysis, gluconeogenesis or fatty acid synthesis.
Our offer includes a wide selection of insulin mimetics. Particularly noteworthy are multicomponent formulas, combining several or a dozen synergistic substances. Supplemented wisely, they allow to take full advantage of the insulin potential, promote the building of muscle mass, promote efficiency and improve the post-workout regeneration process.
