An extract from the root of non-GMO Salacia chinensis, a woody plant, is used in MetaVive™. These extracts have been shown to improve glucose tolerance and regulate kidney carbohydrate metabolism. Salacia extracts also help to alleviate symptoms associated with numerous health conditions such as asthma, rheumatism, itching, swelling, diabetes and obesity.

During the last step of carbohydrate digestion, MetaVive™ naturally inhibits the ability of the intestinal enzyme α-glucosidase to break down disaccharides and absorb glucose. This reduces the impact of sugar in the blood, making it easier to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. In comparison, Starch Blockers will target the alpha-amylase enzyme to inhibit the breakdown of complex carbohydrates like starch, but its effects are limited.

MetaVive™ undergoes rigorous testing – including DNA fingerprinting – for authenticity and characterization of both actives and bioactivity.
