High blood glucose levels are associated with the development of diabetes, which is a common disease in Western societies. Researchers from Sweden and Germany examined whether a specific nutritional supplement containing various amino acids improves blood glucose levels in non-diabetic adults. To this end, 60 overweight healthy participants were administered with the mentioned supplement (30 participants) or a placebo product (30 participants), which was consumed with a carbohydrate-rich meal. Blood samples were taken to measure blood glucose levels. The consumption of the amino acids resulted in a decreased blood glucose concentration, indicating that these nutritional substances may be useful in the prevention of diabetes. More details can be found in the study.
