Now Recommended for Single Tablet Consumption
LAWRENCE, Mass., Dec. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boston Therapeutics, Inc is pleased to announce that effective sugar reduction with the investigative BTI320 formulation requires only one tablet. Findings were confirmed by the most recent proof-of-concept study conducted in high-risk Chinese subjects with pre-diabetes. A formulation, in the form of a dietary supplement, is currently available as SUGARDOWN®, SUGARBLOCK and SUGARBALANCE in USA and Asia. Results of this study (Clinicaltrials.gov) were presented at the 77th American Diabetes Association (ADA) conference in June 2017 and exhibited that one tablet was effective in lowering the one and two-hour postprandial glucose levels in pre-diabetic subjects.
CEO, Carl W Rausch describes the significance of this change, “Moving from the two-tablet initial consumption to the single tablet has a two-fold benefit. It will improve compliance and broaden a positive outcome experience. It will also enhance convenience and lower costs to individuals, immediately impacting the health economic trajectory of food related causes of metabolic diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neuropathies and retinopathies.”
The investigative BTI320 formulation has been shown to lower postprandial glucose excursions and significantly reduce glycemic variability in high-risk individuals with pre-diabetes. In China alone, 110 million people were suffering from type 2 diabetes in 2015. This number is expected to grow to 151 million by 2040 (http://www.wpro.who.int/china/mediacentre/releases/2016/20160406/en/). The impact of treating people sooner than later cannot be understated and non-systemic option like BTI320 may have an important impact on the progression of disease.
