What does AntaGolin do?

Independent research has shown that the individual plant-derived ingredients contained within this unique blend may help to alleviate insulin resistance by targeting multiple biological pathways.

 How can AntaGolin assist me?

AntaGolin is a natural product that helps to combat insulin resistance by assisting your body to regulate blood sugar more efficiently. When taken at a supplementary dosage over the long term, AntaGolin helps to control your body fat level more effectively. When taken at a higher dosage (see dosage instructions), studies have shown that AntaGolin in conjunction with a structured weight-loss programme can help you to lose weight more effectively. Because of its blood sugar regulation ability, AntaGolin is an ideal long term supplement for pre-diabetic and type 2 diabetic subjects.

 Why is optimal blood sugar and insulin regulation so important?

Impaired blood sugar and insulin regulation are directly linked to the progressive accumulation of excess body fat, both as a cause as well as an aggravating factor. Key to this development is a condition called insulin resistance. If allowed to progress to a more advanced state, impaired blood sugar and insulin regulation may lead to the development of type 2 diabetes.

 What is insulin resistance?

Insulin resistance is a condition during which the body fails to respond to the normal regulatory effects of insulin. To overcome this deficit, the body compensates by producing more insulin, causing blood insulin levels to rise.

 Why is insulin resistance associated with excess body fat?

Although insulin is the dominant regulator of blood sugar control and therefore plays a crucial role in health, various studies have also demonstrated that chronically elevated insulin levels causes you to gain weight. This is due to the fact that insulin plays an intricate role in the body’s ability to store fat.

 How do I know whether I could be insulin resistant?

Males with waistlines over 102cm in diameter and females over 88cm are most likely insulin resistant according to US guidelines, especially if they are struggling to control their weight. European guidelines, however, are more stringent and predict that males over 93cm and females over 79cm are statistically more prone to insulin resistance.

 How can I combat insulin resistance?

In order to optimise your metabolism and gain control of your weight, you need to follow a strategy during which your blood sugar and insulin levels are balanced in such a manner that it minimises fat storage and maximises fat burning. Various bio-chemical mechanisms are involved in the development of insulin resistance and ultimately the onset of diabetes. When the relevant mechanisms start to fail, either on single or multiple levels, insulin resistance sets in and diabetes may follow. To prevent this from happening, each of these mechanisms can potentially be targeted by an appropriate therapeutic agent. Besides prescription drugs, this includes various bio-active compounds derived from plants. Diet and exercise also plays a critical role.

 What does AntaGolin contain?

AntaGolin contains is a unique blend of bioactive compounds extracted from different plant species that have all scientifically been documented to help regulate blood sugar levels and insulin levels. These are barberry root extract, banaba leaf extract and inositol.

 What are bioactive compounds?

‘Bioactive compounds’ are the molecules that give traditional herbal remedies and certain foods their medicinal qualities. In large parts of the world, conditions caused or aggravated by impaired blood sugar and insulin regulation are routinely treated with certain herbal agents. This is based on a long history of recorded knowledge that practitioners of traditional medicine have gained over thousands of years. Modern research analysing these herbal agents have found that they contain certain novel bioactive compounds that are able to support several different biochemical pathways involved in the regulation of blood sugar and body fat levels.

 How does AntaGolin work?

The unique blend of bioactive compounds contained within AntaGolin work on multiple levels involving various biochemical pathways responsible for metabolic regulation. Some of these work in the intestines where they help reduce carbohydrate digestion and absorption, whilst others help to optimise certain biochemical pathways that regulate body fat percentage and blood sugar levels within the body.

 Who can use AntaGolin?

AntaGolin can be used by anyone suffering from excess body fat who are struggling to gain control of their weight or may be suffering from a degree of insulin resistance. Because of its blood sugar regulation ability, AntaGolin is ideal for pre-diabetic and type 2 diabetic subjects, especially over the long term. AntaGolin can also be used by woman suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

 What is the usual dosage?
  • For weight-loss purposes: – Take 2 tablets 3 times a day with meals. It is best to use AntaGolin in conjunction with an appropriate diet and exercise programme.
  • For weight maintenance over the long term: – Take 2 tablets once or twice daily with meals.
  • For assistance with blood sugar in diabetic and pre-diabetic subjects: – Take 2 tablets once or twice daily with meals.
 Are there any side effects?

AntaGolin generally has a low side-effect profile even when used for extended periods. Gastrointestinal side effects, including abdominal fullness and nausea have been reported. Individuals on diabetic medication may develop low blood sugar, especially if AntaGolin is taken on an empty stomach. It is therefore recommended that AntaGolin is taken with meals.

 Can AntaGolin be taken with other medication?

Yes, AntaGolin may be taken with most prescription drugs, including diabetic drugs such as metformin. Caution, however, must be taken with all classes of oral anti-diabetic medication, as the blood sugar-lowering effect of AntaGolin may potentiate the action of this category of drugs and leave you with symptoms of low blood sugar. Caution must also be taken when used with warfarin.

 Are there any contra-indications?

Yes, AntaGolin should not be used under the following conditions:

  • If you are hypersensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients contained within AntaGolin .
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you have advanced kidney disease.
  • If you suffer from severe low blood pressure.
 Will I lose weight if I take AntaGolin without changing my diet or doing any exercise?

Although our research has demonstrated that this approach will assist you to regulate your metabolism and control your blood sugar levels, on its own it won’t optimise your weight-loss potential, especially when you generally eat too much. Combining AntaGolin with a diet and exercise programme will always give you the best weight-loss results.
