LG Sciences Slin Advanced Insulin Potentiator Review
LG Sciences’ Slin Advanced Insulin Potentiator is an insulin potentiator that helps your body fully utilize ingested carbohydrates.
Will LG Sciences Slin Advanced Insulin Potentiator actually work? We need to look at the ingredients and consumer reviews to figure it out.
LG Sciences Slin Advanced Insulin Potentiator Ingredients
Alpha lipoic acid: 125mgs
Insulin Potentiator Complex: 630mgs
Bitter Melon, Glucunorolactone, Vanadyl Sulfate
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that is both water and fat soluble–meaning it works throughout the entire body. “Antioxidants are substances that attack “free radicals,” waste products created when the body turns food into energy.
Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells in the body, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. They also damage organs and tissues.” It has been found in numerous studies to help prevent and treat diabetes, liver disease, stroke, improve brain function, and used in treating glaucoma.
Bitter melon aids in digestion, is a natural antiviral, cardioprotective (helps lower inflammation in cardiovascular system), and helps in the treatment of diabetes.
“Glucuronolactone is rapidly absorbed and metabolised into non-toxic metabolites such as xylulose. In addition, humans may be able to use glucuronolactone as a precursor for ascorbic acid synthesis. According to The Merck Index, it is also used as a detoxicant.” (Am J Clin Nutr 8: 369–73, Merck Index, 14th ed.)
“Vanadyl Sulfate is the most popular and common form of vanadium, an element in the body that is found in foods such as pepper, dill, radishes, eggs, vegetable oils, buckwheat, and oats. The physiological role of vanadium in humans is unknown, but it seems that the substance is needed for normal growth and development (Boden et al. 1996).
Recently, a great deal of attention has been paid to vanadium because of its supposed insulin-mimicking activities. The precise mechanism by which vanadium mimics the effects of insulin is uncertain, but some researchers have made proposals.
The most popular view has been that vanadium works as a co-factor. Specifically, it is thought to work by altering the concentration and effectiveness of several enzymes that are involved in the breakdown and distribution of glucose molecules and amino acids.”
Slin is a fairly elusive product. It’s received fair reviews from customers, but it’s difficult to pull up any information on how it works or why it works, and the amounts of ingredients are not on the label, so it is hard to directly state how effective bitter melon and vanadyl sulfate will be in the product. We advise looking elsewhere to a product that is more open about their product.
