So, what if we tell you that you could have your coffee with its authentic taste, but manage your diabetes at the same time? We present to you our unique product, iCoffee. We use high-quality coffee beans from Coorg in Karnataka. In addition, it is professionally blended with the main ingredient Salacia reticulata, along with Mucuna pruriens (Cowhage) extract. Salacia reticulata is an ayurvedic herb proven to reduce and balance blood sugar levels due to the rich amount of polyphenols and mangiferin present in it. Its active component, salcital, a clinically proven herbal supplement, has been standardized and extracted and is infused into iCoffee.
It is used to treat prediabetes. It has also shown to be effective in treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The herb also possesses anti-oxidant properties with a significant trigyceride and cholesterol lowering effects. Consequently, this aids in weight loss. Salcital inhibits alpha glucosidase and pancreatic lipase, thus delaying the absorption of glucose into the blood and improving glycemic control. It also supports healthy weight management by improving insulin resistance and glucose metabolism.
This is how salcital works. It contains salacinol, kotalanol, kotalagenin-16 acetate and mangiferin. These inhibit the alpha glucosidase enzyme production. This in turn, stops the conversion of polysaccharides to monosaccharides and decreases glucose absorption in the intestine. Insulin production in the pancreas is increased. This increases the peripheral glucose uptake in the muscles and adipose tissues.
