KetoShield reduces glucose levels in the blood. It does this in two ways: by promoting glucose excretion via the urinary tract and by blocking absorption of glucose via the intestinal tract. Once ingested, carbohydrates are broken down to glucose by the digestive system. Too much glucose can lead to high levels of insulin and result in the storage of body fat. KetoShield, when taken with a meal, controls glucose levels in the blood, thus stabilizing insulin levels for optimal fat burning. For those attempting to achieve ketosis by means of a ketogenic diet, KetoShield may shorten the time it takes the body to start burning fat and to produce ketones. KetoShield may also be helpful to those not restricted to low carb diets but hoping to limit dietary carbohydrate impact. KetoShield is best taken three times a day with your largest meals.
Ketoshield should not be taken by people with kidney dysfunctions or by people who are experiencing urinary tract infections. If you are currently using blood glucose lowering medication or any other prescription or over-the-counter medications, please consult a physician before use. KetoSports recommends that you always check with your doctor before taking any nutritional supplement product.
The Science Behind the Product
KetoShield contains the compound Phlorizin. Phlorizin belongs to a family of natural compounds called dihydrochalcones. It is a constituent of apples and other fruits.
Phlorizin has been studied and used to treat diabetes and has a history of use in humans. Its main mode of action is inhibition of a class of enzymes called sodium/glucose transporters (SGLTs). These enzymes are present in the kidneys and in the lining of the small intestine. In the kidneys, this inhibition leads to increased excretion of glucose in the urine, while in the intestines it leads to decreased absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.
This combination of decreased glucose absorption from food and increased glucose excretion into the urine serves to lower blood glucose levels. Lowering blood glucose will lower insulin levels which in turn increases recruitment of fat stores for energy. For people currently on a ketogenic diet, KetoShield may also facilitate the onset of nutritional ketosis via these same mechanisms.
KetoShield is best taken three times a day with meals.
