Glucose Disposal Agents
Glucose Disposal Agents (GDA’s) are supplements that are used to help control blood sugar, promote fat loss, help with storage of carbohydrates into the muscle cells instead of fat cells. They are often used to help offset a high carbohydrate meal that would otherwise promote fat gain.
The basis for GDA supplement use is to help prevent insulin from sending glucose to be stored as fat and instead send it to muscles to be used for muscle protein synthesis. GDA’s can also suppress appetite, increase metabolism, and lower cholesterol (while lowering triglycerides) as well as promote fat loss.
As previously mentioned, Glucose Disposal’s are known to:
- Stimulate glycogen storage
- Help Maintain & Increase Insulin Sensitivity
- Promote Fat loss
- Improves Glucose Metabolism
- Promote Muscle Fullness & Vascularity
- Ideal for Fasting & Ketogenic Diets
- Support Healthy liver function
- Support Healthy antioxidant activity.
Glucose Disposal Agents have been around for decades and are one of the most sought after and popular supplements in the fitness and bodybuilding communities. They are also VERY useful for those on a low carb or ketogenic diet.
Glucose Disposal Agents are very effective at controlling/decrease the amount of insulin secreted by the body when consuming carbohydrate-rich meals. This reduction in the amount of insulin secreted by the body can help optimize insulin receptors and aid in decreasing fat gains. GDA’s can then help shuttle glucose into muscle and stay away from fat cells. This in turn can lead to decreased fat gain and increased lean muscle gain.
A good quality Glucose Disposal agent, like Glucosatrol will allow you to eat more carbohydrates, help promote lean muscle gain, aid performance and reduce the amount of carbs that can be stored stored as body fat. In addition many keto dieters have used GDA’s to speed up reentry into ketosis after consuming too many carbs or a cheat meal.
Anti Diabetic effects
Drugs used for diabetic patients often have similar effects and properties to some of the ingredients used in a select few Glucose Disposal agents. In fact 2 ingredients in Glucosatrol were compared against the popular anti-diabetic medications Metformin and Gliclazide.
While Glucose Disposal Agents are mostly touted for their powerful effects over insulin and nutrient partitioning, there are other equality as impressive benefits of the ingredients in a very high quality GDA. This often ignored benefit is an increase in AMPK activity.
As mentioned above, the product Glucosatrol was formulated with a few very special and powerful ingredients that in addition to their anti-inflammatory and blood sugar controlling benefits, these compounds also stimulate Adenosine Monophosphate-Activated Protein Kinase (AMPK).
Increased AMPK activity supports better insulin sensitivity and glucose uptake into muscle cells, while also reducing the amount of glucose generated by the liver.
Increased AMPK activation is associated with longer lifespan and better health; AMPK causes a biochemical cascade that promotes fat oxidation, increases cellular stress defenses and autophagy, and decreases inflammation.
For those who practice Intermittent Fasting as well as low carb or ketogenic diets, intermittent fasting and ketogenic diets are known to trigger autophagy
Increasing AMPK activation and why you should care;
Increased AMPK activation is associated with:
- Reduction of blood triglycerides
- Extended life span by as much as 20-30% in animals,
- Inhibiting excess fat synthesis and increased burning of stored fat
- Decreased liver fat accumulation and fat-related chronic inflammation
- Improved glucose uptake in cells, lowering blood sugar
- Increased numbers of new, healthy mitochondria
So GDA’s are not just a powerful glucose disposal products and Nutrient Partitioners, they can also be an overall health and wellness promoting product.
