Herbalife Formula 1 Nutritional shake mix is tested for GI and test results confirms Low GI.
Understanding GI: Glycemic Index (GI) is the ranking of carbohydrates. It’s the value obtained by the measurement carried out on carbohydrate-containing foods & their impact on blood sugar. Scale from 0 -100, which can be broken down into 3 categories – High (70-100), Medium (56-69) and Low (0-55), based on how quickly they raise sugar levels after eating* Carbohydrates from high-GI foods are rapidly digested, absorbed, and converted to glucose.
The resulting high spike and then rapid decline in blood glucose levels have been shown to induce a sequence of hormonal and metabolic changes linked to excess food intake (D. Ludwig et al., 1999). Low-GI foods may have the opposite effect, since they cause a slower rise of blood glucose and insulin which may have a positive effect on satiety, and thereby weight loss and weight management (Esfahani et al., 2009).
