**Don’t Fear Carbs – Make Them Work for You! **
Dramatic Pumps, Lean Muscle Gains, & Fat Loss!
Insulin has frequently been referred to as the most anabolic hormone in the body. While it can help promote muscle growth, it can unfortunately promote the storage of body-fat as well. With insulin, the key isn’t to have more; the key is how effectively the body can utilize even the smallest amount as efficiently as possible to maximize both muscle growth and fat loss.
GlycoPhase contains a cutting edge nutrient partitioning matrix that is designed to help the body more effectively harness the power of insulin to help maximize lean muscle growth, increase protein synthesis, and effectively clear glucose from the bloodstream in order to create a fat burning environment.
A Few Simple Notes about Insulin in the Bloodstream:
- The higher the level of insulin in the bloodstream, the greater the potential for fat storage and reduced fat mobilization. (1,2)
- More Insulin = More Carbs Stored as Body-Fat. (1,2)
GlycoPhase Summary of Benefits:
- Promotes Fat Loss (2,3,4)
- Promotes Management of Blood Sugar (1, 5, 6)
- Increases the Ability to Train More Intensely, for a Longer Duration of Time (4,5,7)
- Improves Mood and Sense of Well-Being (1,12,13)
- Promotes Management of Insulin Levels (1,2,7,9)
- Increases Glucose Uptake into Muscle Cells (2,16)
- Decreases Glucose Uptake into Fat Cells (2,16)
- Decreases Sugar Cravings (5)
- Help Get Leaner Without Stimulant Based Fat Loss Products (1,2,6,9,11)
- Helps Manipulate Carbs to Work for You, Not Against You (5,6,7,8,9)
- Helps Promote Optimal Nutrient Absorption (6,9)
- Maximize Muscle Glycogen Storage in Order to Minimize Fat Storage (6,9,12,17)
- Helps Use Body-Fat for Fuel (Energy) More Efficiently (1,2,13)
No matter what your health and fitness goals are, helping harness the powerful effects of insulin can most likely help you achieve them!
For a further more in depth understanding:
Glucose and Glycogen in Laymen’s Terms:
All dietary carbohydrates are broken down into glucose in the small intestine and then absorbed into the bloodstream. From there the glucose will either be used as an immediate energy source for ATP synthesis or will be stored as glycogen in the liver and muscle tissue, utilized as fuel immediately, or converted to triglycerides and stored as body-fat. Glucose is only stored as glycogen until glycogen stores (in the muscles and liver) are topped off and then the excess is converted to fat. (23)
The Role of Insulin in Laymen’s Terms:
Insulin plays a crucial role in the modulation of glucose and protein synthesis, which is crucial to how the body responds to exercise, food intake and other physiological demands. (2, 3) Many people know that insulin transports glucose in the blood into various cells around the body. What is lesser known is that the body does not preferentially store glucose into muscle cells over fat cells unless there is a specific condition that encourages it. (4) The body will simply move the excess glucose out of the blood in order to prevent toxicity and any complications that may arrive from it, which means that fat cells are a target for glucose dumping as well. There are several ways that an environment can be created to ‘encourage’ glucose to be moved preferentially to muscle cells, and that is through exercise, translocation of skeletal muscle Glut4, and other sensitization methods. (3, 4)
Insulin and Fat Loss:
Insulin stimulates fat storage by stimulating fat cells to take in glucose and impairs lipolysis which means that it stops the body’s ability to break down stored fat for use as fuel. Ideally, you want to create an environment where you are able to assist the body’s ability to clear glucose out of the blood and into muscle cells with as little insulin required as possible in order to create a fat burning environment. In a perfect scenario, muscle and liver glucose uptake is high, fat glucose intake is low, and only a small amount of insulin is required. Minimal to no fat would be stored under these circumstances. Under these conditions, a person would be referred to as ‘insulin sensitive’ meaning that a small amount of insulin has a maximum effect. (1,2,3,4)
What are the Effects of Blood Glucose Levels on Fat Loss?
Increasing the body’s uptake of glucose is important for people who are trying to lose fat and stay lean because they are often ‘glucose intolerant’ or ‘insulin resistant’ to some degree. This means that the person’s body is not able to achieve normal blood sugar levels after a meal which causes them to have a high blood sugar level. High glucose levels contribute to fat storage and inability to lose weight. (3)
What are the Effects of Blood Glucose Levels on Muscle Growth?
Remember our perfect scenario above in which muscle and liver glucose intake is high, fat glucose is low, and only a small amount of insulin is required. When a person is ‘insulin sensitive’, a small amount of insulin exerts a large effect. When a person is ‘insulin sensitive’, glucose is more likely to be stored as glycogen in muscle tissues rather than as fat. This can help lead to a leaner, fuller, more muscular physique.
What are the Effects of Blood Glucose Levels on Energy Levels?
Blood Glucose (blood sugar) levels can have a major impact on energy levels. Helping maintain a stable blood glucose level throughout the day can help maximize energy levels. (23)
What are Glucose Disposal Agents (GDA’s)?
Glucose Disposal Agents (GDA’s) are a class of supplements that enhance nutrient uptake to cells by increasing the efficiency of insulin. The goal of a true GDA should be to make you more ‘insulin sensitive’, thereby helping maintain stable blood glucose levels resulting in the more efficient use of body-fat and carbohydrates as a fuel source. They work with the body to optimize response to naturally produced insulin and in doing so can help contribute to a leaner, fuller, more muscular physique.
This is where GlycoPhase’s cutting edge nutrient partitioning matrix doesn’t just help it stand out, it helps it stand alone.
What makes GlycoPhase Different & So Effective compared to other GDA’s?
Many GDA’s claim to assist insulin and promote glucose transport into muscle cells, but few actually do this. Most simply block carbohydrate absorption in the intestine, but do nothing to help the body better utilize insulin and create the environment necessary for increased uptake into muscle cells.
