What is Emulin+?

Emulin+ is the world’s first carbohydrate manager. It contains a patented botanical mix called Emulin® that helps your body better manage the large number of refined carbohydrates – starch and sugar that we consume in our diets.

Emulin® is a patented blend of chlorogenic acid, myricetin, and quercetin.

What are refined carbohydrates?

Refined carbohydrates are plant based products – mostly grains like wheat, corn and rice – that have been stripped off their fiber, vitamins and minerals (hence, the term "refined"). Sometimes, they are referred to as "empty calories"

Why are refined carbohydrates so harmful?

Since they are digested quickly and easily, a large amount of sugar is released, leading to a rapid rise in blood sugar level. This is harmful to your body and can result in high cholesterol and chronic inflammation.

Who invented Emulin?

Florida based scientist, Dr Joseph Ahrens PhD, discovered Emulin® while working on the metabolic effects of grapefruit. He noticed that the compounds within the ingredients found in Emulin® helped the body better manage blood sugar. He also noticed that tweaking these compounds could also help with weight loss.

In fact, these compounds are able to cross the blood brain barrier and significantly help Alzheimer’s patients. Dr Ahrens was nominated for Nobel Prize for this research in January 2015.

What are the ingredients in Emulin®?

Emuli®n is made from 3 flavonoids extracted from food. The first flavonoid is Myricetin which we get by extracting it from dark grapes. The second flavonoid is Chlorogenic Acid which we get from green, non-roasted coffee beans. There is no caffeine in the resulting product. The third flavonoid is Quercetin, which we get from onions.

What are the scientific studies?

A study on Emulin® has been conducted on Type 2 diabetic subjects. The research is published on the Journal of Medicinal Food in March 2013. In the study, Forty human subjects with confirmed type 2 diabetes (10 each in 4 groups: placebo/no medication, Emulin®/no medication, placebo/metformin and Emulin®/metformin) were evaluated. At the end of 1 week, fasting blood glucose, 2 h postprandial, actual peak glucose, and AUC (post-50 g OGTT) were determined. The placebo-only group had a large (5%-13%) increase in all parameters. The Emulin® group and those on metformin performed similarly with reductions between 1% and 5%, with Emulin® slightly outperforming the medication-alone group. The most significant reduction occurred in the Emulin®/metformin group, with decreases in the parameters by up to 20%. These results suggest that, if consumed regularly, could not only have the acute effect of lowering the glycemic impact of foods, but chronically lower background blood glucose levels of type 2 diabetics.

Another study of the effects of Emulin® in weight loss has been completed. The results were positive and are pending publication.

What is the difference between the C and M version?

Tweaking the combination of chlorogenic acid, myricetin, and quercetin can bring vastly different effects from control of blood sugar and improvement of sugar metabolism. It can even bring about long term sustained weight loss. </p> <p>The ‘C’ version is recommended for individuals with blood sugar issues as the combination is based on trials done with diabetic patients.</p> <p>The ‘M’ version is the rest of us who want to minimize the effects of refined carbohydrates in our bodies.</p> <p>The major difference between ‘M’ and ‘C’ is the amount of quercetin in the final product. "M" has more quercetin.
