Why Extend & How it Works
Dr. Francine Kaufman, M.D., a world-renowned endocrinologist and former President of the American Diabetes Association, developed a unique formula using a combination of proteins, fats and complex carbohydrates to help control blood sugar for up to 9 hours.
Typical snacks metabolize over a 1-2 hour period, causing a rapid rise in blood sugar. The body responds with insulin, which quickly drives blood sugar back down. By the time your blood sugar bottoms out, you are feeling the fatigue and cravings characteristic of the insulin response. When your blood sugar drops and you feel cravings, an unhealthy snack can restart the 'spike crash crave' cycle by triggering the insulin response.
The low-glycemic carbs in Extend Nutrition products digest and metabolize very gradually (Low "Net Carbs"). The result is stable energy for 6 hours during the day and 9 hours at night, as your body metabolizes faster during periods of normal activity versus periods of rest. Extend products won't spike your blood sugar and therefore don't cause an insulin response (for people who produce insulin naturally). With no blood sugar spikes or insulin response; you'll avoid the old 'spike-crash-crave' cycle and regain control of your blood sugar.
Supported by peer-reviewed clinical studies and protected by 17 international patents, only the Extend Nutrition formula is proven to be effective in helping to control blood sugar for up to 9 hours and provide long-lasting energy. No other snack even comes close
