Kernersville, NC (PRWEB) December 8, 2004
A new study by leading glycemic-index experts at the University of Sydney (Australia) has found that Revival Soy protein products have little impact on blood sugar levels. This is great news for anyone on a Âsmart-carbÂ/Âlow-carbÂ weight loss diet, or those simply desiring a healthy diet.
Glycemic index is simply a measurement of how carbohydrates in a dietary product impact blood sugar levels. ÂHigh-glycemic indexÂ products, like white bread, have carbs that are rapidly digested and absorbed, thus resulting in sharp increases in blood sugar levels. ÂLow-glycemic indexÂ products, like soy protein, have carbs that are slowly digested and absorbed, thus producing minimal rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health. ÂLow-carbÂ and Âsmart-carbÂ products typically have a low-glycemic index.
A rapid rise in blood sugar levels increases insulin secretion, a hormone that stores sugar as fat. According to the University of Sydney, the benefits of a Âlow-glycemic indexÂ diet are numerous including weight loss, reduced hunger cravings, improved energy levels, and improved insulin metabolism.
This new study helps confirm that Revival Soy protein products are the perfect protein supplement to any weight loss plan, including popular Âsmart-carbÂ/Âlow-carbÂ and Âhigh proteinÂ diets.
