Each sport nutrition product was tested to see how the body responded to glucose and insulin responses.
We performed our own tests and found products containing sugar significantly fluctuated sugar (glucose) and insulin levels.
* 50g of each product was ingested and tracked using a Continuous Glucose Monitor. Each body will respond differently to these products.

This graph shows the advantage of steady blood sugar and disadvantages of significantly fluctuating blood sugar and insulin levels.
