Help with Weight-loss
Poor diet and obesity can increase the risk of many health problems, such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancer.
But following a strict diet can be frustrating and stressful and not necessarily achieve the desired results.
Tagatose acts as a ‘sugar blocker’ by preventing increased blood glucose levels and inhibiting insulin production after carbohydrate consumption. Consuming strategic amounts of tagatose daily has been shown to support weight loss and stabilise blood glucose levels.
A study confirmed that 45g of tagatose per day could lead to a weight loss of 5.1kg per year. The dose used in the study was 45g (3 x 15g), and we recommend no more than 70g of tagatose per day.
Another recent study also demonstrated that insulin leads to the first steps of cell division and DNA duplication in fat cells. As a result, the fat cells produce substances causing inflammation, organ dysfunction, and premature ageing. Therefore, high levels of insulin cause a very negative effect on fat cells. Tagatose helps prevent inflammation, organ dysfunction and premature ageing due to the absence or low effect of insulin increase in the blood.
Tagatose slows the uptake of other sugars, which decreases the overall glycaemic index and improves blood fat levels.
This means tagatose mobilises the breakdown of fat, which helps you lose weight.
