Vijaya Juturu Ph.D., F.A.C.N., Senior Manager of Global Scientific and Clinical Affairs, OmniActive Health Technologies Inc. will present findings from the study “Salacia Extract Improves Post-Prandial Glucose and Insulin Response: A Randomized Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study in Healthy Volunteers” at the Experimental Biology Conference, April 2-6 in San Diego, Calif. (USA). The randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial was performed on normal, healthy individuals.
“Our purpose was to evaluate the acute effect of Salacia extract, an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor, on glucose and insulin response (to an oral sucrose load) in healthy individuals,” stated Dr. Jayant Deshpande, CTO of OmniActive Health Technologies. “Through its ability to inhibit alpha-glucosidase enzyme, SE shows tremendous potential to support healthy blood glucose and insulin levels by decreasing carbohydrate absorption.”
OmniLean Salacia Extract experienced a successful market launch earlier this month at Engredea/Natural Products Expo 2016 at Anaheim, Calif (USA).
