The Ambrosia Collective has created a new product known as Alkemi NCT® or nutrient conversion technology.
Nutrient conversion technology was used to describe the idea of properly absorbing carbohydrates in order to control insulin response while effectively helping to burn fat and build muscle. Our one-of-a-kind technology was created with a distinctively designed formula that helps you build muscle using carbohydrate absorption. In this piece, we’ll dive into how Alkemi NCT® can help you properly use carbohydrates throughout your workout and training process.
Chromax (200mcg daily dose)
Chromax was formulated using Chromium Picolinate, used to improve cognitive function, weight and hunger management, and for mood control and metabolism of glucose. As the only form of clinically test food chromium, it has been widely shown to promote a number of positive health effects including:
• Glucose metabolism & insulin resistance
• Body weight control & management
• Cholesterol control
• Improved cardiovascular health
• Controlling energy metabolism
• Maintenance of cognitive functions
As Chromax is absorbed into the bloodstream, its unique structure promotes insulin function leading to efficient carbohydrate metabolism, reduced calorie intake and improved muscle maintenance when in a fat loss state (1). Studies have shown Chromax may in fact reduce food intake by up to 25% while reducing cravings for high-fat foods in non-diabetic overweight women (2).
ProCynCi (300mg daily dose)
Procynci® is a patented extract, water-soluble cinnamon that has up to three times better activity compared to normal water extract – As an extract of Cinnamomum cassia, it provides a number of health benefits including:
• Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels
• Helps maintain normal cholesterol levels
• Helps to lose body weight
• Manages postprandial blood sugar spikes
• Supports digestion and detoxification
• Maintains blood pressure
Studies have indicated ProCynCi to be extremely effective in lowering blood sugar levels compared to standard cinnamon extracts (3). As a 100% natural, food-grade and clean label patented technology that enhances solubility, stability, and bioavailability – ProCynCi makes nutrient absorption more efficient at the cellular level for rapid action (4).
InSea2 (250mg daily dose)
InSea2® helps combat the harmful effects associated with overconsumption of added sugars in our daily diet. As demonstrated in numerous clinical studies, InSea2 helps maintain good glycemic health. As an all-natural ingredient that transforms dietary carbohydrates into glucose – InSea2 has been shown to help reduce glycemic stress by up to 48.3% from first use (5).
In a study conducted on 175 patients with type 2 diabetes, InSea2 was shown to help reduce glycated hemoglobin (6). As a result, post-meal blood glucose levels were reduced along with insulin levels. Carbohydrates can be controlled in a positive manner instead of actively raising post-meal blood glucose levels.
Glucovantage (200mg daily dose)
GlucoVantage, also known as dihydroberberine, is an active metabolite of berberine. Glucovantage has been shown to provide a number of health benefits including:
• Supporting healthy blood sugar levels
• Promoting positive insulin sensitivity
• Improving body composition
Research conducted on Glucovantage has been shown to help disable fat burning mechanisms with a large amount of carbohydrates and a large insulin spike (7). Results showed that four doses of 100mg of dihydroberberine resulted in greater concentrations of plasma berberine across two-hour measurement windows when compared to 500mg doses of berberine or placebo (8). Overall, berberine, the active ingredient in Glucovantage, has been shown to optimize blood sugar, improve insulin sensitivity and improve body composition.
Banaba Leaf (10% corosolic acid) (200mg daily dose)
Banaba leafs have been shown to provide a number of anti-diabetic properties while offering a number of other health benefits including:
• Controlling blood sugar levels
• Antioxidant activity
• May help to curb obesity
• Can reduce the risk of heart disease
• Protect against kidney damage
Corosolic acid, the active ingredient in banaba leaf, increases insulin sensitivity, enhances glucose uptake, and has an enzyme that helps digest carbs (9). One study showed that individuals receiving corosolic acid had lower blood sugar levels for 1-2 hours after performing an oral glucose tolerance test compared to control groups (10).
