(PR NewsChannel)—A diabetic-friendly sugar that has been proven to help reduce sugar intake will soon be added to popular breads and cereals to help fight epidemic of obesity, especially in children, the makers of the new sugar said today. The news comes on the heels of a new diabetes study released early this morning.
The International Diabetes Federation revealed the results of the new diabetes study predicting that one in 10 adults could have diabetes by 2030. The report, also issued today, estimated more than 500-million people could be diagnosed with diabetes in the next two decades.
‘Sugir’ is real sugar that contains an all-natural additive called Emulin. That tasteless additive helps prevent the body from absorbing about a third of the sugar.
The makers of Sugir and Emulin, Winter Haven-based ATM Metabolics, says it cannot reveal which brands will contain Sugir just yet, but the company says the products are well-known, popular and contain higher amounts of carbohydrates. “Sugar is not the problem, but rather how much sugar we consume,” says Daryl Thompson, president of ATM Metabolics, the research firm that discovered Emulin. “By adding Emulin to sugar, Sugir has the power to reverse diabetes.”
And that’s what will be added to some top brands in an effort to fight obesity. Studies have shown that Emulin blocks the absorption of sugar by more than 30 percent. Emulin ™ is a patented formulation of compounds found in fruits, like grapefruits and berries.
A new independent study conducted in Winter Haven, Fla. found that a group of overweight yet otherwise healthy individuals lost an average of seven pounds by doing nothing more than adding Emulin to their diets.
The independent study, “Effect of Emulin ™ on Weight Loss,” was conducted by Dr. Dale Wickstrom-Hill, the director of Perfect Form Weight Loss Clinic, LLC. The study’s conclusion: “Emulin can assist with weight loss in obese individuals without change in dietary intake.”
Emulin has been available online and at GNC stores. But in the coming weeks, Winter Haven, Fla.-based ATM Metabolics says Emulin will be added to popular breads and cereals.
“By having Emulin in the food supply, we will see a rapid reduction in obesity and diabetes rates,” Dr. Joseph Ahrens, vice-president of ATM Metabolics says. “Much like what folate in breads did for birth defect rates, Emulin will be able to do the same for obesity and diabetes rates, which continue to skyrocket in the United States.”
ATM Metabolics says that Emulin slows the conversion of complex carbohydrates to simple sugars as well as reduces sugar absorption from the gut to the bloodstream while stimulating absorption from the bloodstream to muscle tissue. Twenty-four participants were split into two groups; one half received Emulin while the other received a placebo, but both groups received 250 mg capsules three times a day. Participants were not required to change their diets or exercise routine, just simply take the capsules three times a day.
Participants were weighed and measured in the chest, waist, hips and thigh areas before starting the study and every week throughout. Medical professionals also measured their blood pressure, respiration, pulse, body mass index and fat percentage.
After one month of taking Emulin, the 12 participants saw an average loss of seven pounds as well as a decrease in their body fat percentage. As for their measurements, the group had lost over 7 inches in the chest area, 6.9 inches in the waist, 8 inches in the hips region and just over 4 inches on their thighs. The leading weight loss drug Alli is reported to help individuals lose five to seven pounds a year with proper diet and exercise. Emulin showed similar results in simply 30 days without the negative side effects commonly associated with Alli.
Participants’ blood pressure, respiration and pulse were all measured, but there was no change in any of these vitals due to Emulin’s all-natural composition. “This study not only shows that Emulin helps in the fight against obesity, but it also shows that it doesn’t adversely affect the body,” Ahrens says. “Emulin works with the body’s natural mechanisms to manage sugar, rather than against them, like many weight loss supplements.”
