Nexira Proprietary Study, The Game Changer in FDA Approval
Since 2016, Nexira has worked on providing further evidence to support the dietary fiber status of acacia gum and has launched in 2019 a new proprietary clinical study to strengthen the body of evidence supporting the beneficial physiological effects of acacia fiber.
Nexira’s New Clinical Results: inavea Attenuates Post-prandial Blood Glucose and Insulin Levels
The proprietary clinical study launched in 2019 by Nexira has supplied solid evidence that acacia gum consumption has beneficial physiological effects on human health by attenuation of post-prandial blood glucose and insulin levels. 1
Thirty-five normal-weight and overweight men and women who were otherwise healthy participated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over design study.
Postprandial blood glucose and postprandial insulin were measured at baseline and at several time points for 180 minutes after consumption of the breakfast meal. Postprandial blood glucose, as measured by AUC and peak concentration, was statistically significantly lower after consumption of gum acacia compared to control at both doses, 20 g and 40 g (P < 0.05 for both doses). Postprandial insulin, as measured by AUC and peak concentration, was also statistically significantly lower after consumption of gum acacia compared to control (P < 0.05 for both doses). There was no dose-response effect observed between the two doses of gum acacia (P > 0.05).
