We consume too many refined carbohydrates, especially sugars and starches. Excess carbs lead to “carb toxicity”—increased blood sugar, elevated blood fats, excessive weight gain, poor sleep, sluggish physical and mental energy, etc. Excessive carb intake causes blood sugar peaks, leading to tiredness and constant hunger. Prolonged excessive carb intake leads to inflammation—the root cause of most disease.
Uncarb® is the world’s first carbohydrate optimizer. Its all-natural, patented blend of four ingredients work in tandem to significantly reduce the negative effects of carbohydrates, giving sustained energy throughout the day.
These are produced by plants. They are rows of sugar molecules tied together like pearls on a string. The longer the chain and the more complex the molecule, the longer it takes to breakdown into sugar. Examples are fruits and vegetables.
The brain is just 2% of our total body weight yet it consumes 20% of our total body energy. In other words, brain tissue is 10 times more energy-hungry than other tissues. The brain prefers slow and regular energy coming from sugars and fats (ketones). The brain does not like sugar “highs” and “lows” as it leads to mental sluggishness and drowsiness.
This is a class of plant-based compounds. They are found in most plants that also contain sugar and serve to optimize the proper digestion of carbs.
The process of refining strips carbohydrates of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, thus making them extremely easy to digest. Examples are starches and sugars.
This is a natural, initial reaction by the body against harmful elements being introduced to it. The common symptoms are redness, swelling, pain, and heat. Short-term, temporary inflammation is good as needed, but long-term inflammation leads to tissue breakdown and disease.
Initially thought to be “vital amines,” these are now understood to be compounds that are necessary for normal metabolism but cannot be produced by the body; they need to come from the diet.
The common term for carbohydrates.
Calories are required to run the metabolic body processes.
To optimize the effects of carbs in the body, we went back to India where roughly 6,000 years ago humankind stopped being hunter-gatherers and moved on to farming. As farmers, they consumed larger and larger amounts of carbs like rice, wheat, and even sugar cane. We looked at what they were eating in their environment that was protecting them and noticed a certain pattern with the plants that were in their diets. Following this, we then consulted with widely-known and trusted databases of medicinal plants and foods of India:
This is the largest medicinal plant database in the world and also the oldest. Traditional Knowledge Digital Library (TKDL) is a pioneering initiative of India to protect the power of India’s traditional medicinal knowledge.
Traditional Knowledge Digital Library scientifically converted and structured all the available contents (till date 0.29 million medicinal formulations) of the ancient texts on Indian Systems of Medicines i.e. Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Yoga, into five international languages, namely, English, Japanese, French, German, and Spanish, with the help of information technology tools and an innovative classification system.
IMPAACT is a manually curated database of 1742 Indian Medicinal Plants, 9596 Phytochemicals, 1124 Therapeutic uses spanning 27,074 plant-phytochemical associations, and 11,514 plant-therapeutic associations.
InDiaMed is a database of Indian medicinal plants that have roles in anti-diabetic activity. The features include chemical, pharmacological, biochemical, and geographical information of the medicinal plant, scientifically relevant information of the plant, and the coherent research done on it in the field of diabetes. The database also includes the list of poly-herbal formulations used for the treatment of diabetes in India.
Uncarb® is the world’s first carbohydrate optimizer rooted in over 4,000 years’ worth of Ayurvedic teachings along with cutting-edge research into genes and epigenetics. Uncarb® makes the best of nature work for you!
Refined carbs are mostly grains (wheat, rice, and corn), potatoes, and sugars. They are further refined making them “white.” They make between 60 to 80% of the modern diet. While they taste good, they very quickly become sugar in the body. Sugar is a toxin. It is so toxic that it cannot be stored anywhere in your body – even in milligram quantities.
Sugar is fuel; however, it is fuel that is toxic. It is so toxic that it cannot be stored. It must be used up. Excess sugar causes inflammation that leads to degeneration and disease. Excess sugar is quickly treated by the body in the following ways:
There are several modes of action:
The Uncarb formula works with Nature to reduce the short- and long-term impact of excess carbohydrate intake.
To solve the problem of high carbohydrate consumption, we examined 4,000 years ago, when humans first started consuming large amounts of rice and wheat. It wasn’t until later when diabetes, obesity, and heart disease were discovered.
We looked at what complemented foods 4,000 years ago: spices and herbs. Some were more popular and were used more often than others. In a collaboration with a group of scientists from India, we looked at studies and publications on these commonly-used botanicals.
We developed a unique formula and filed for a formulation patent for Uncarb. The ingredients of Uncarb were chosen:
Cinnamon bark extract
Cinnamon bark helps support a healthy blood sugar balance by supporting blood sugar metabolism. The bark of the preferred species, which is unique to our patent, contains up to 10% volatile oil content rich in Cinnamaldehyde.This has unique properties that helps support fat and cholesterol levels in a normal range. The polyphenolic polymers have been studied for their effects to support insulin and blood sugar levels within a normal range. Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is vital to promoting healthy vision, heart, circulation, kidneys, and nervous system.
Cinnamon also seems to have an effect of disrupting the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, which is probably the origin of “cinnamon bread” in the Western world.
Uses and Benefits of Cinnamon:
Fenugreek Seed Extract
There are many studies focused on the effects of fenugreek on normal blood sugar levels and blood lipids. It is one of the most common condiments for a typical meal, such as the base for curries, which pairs with rice and Indian breads.
We work with extracts rich in 4-hydroxyisoleucine: an amino acid that has been extracted and purified from fenugreek seeds. These are known in traditional medicine for their antidiabetic and blood sugar modifying properties.
Uses and Benefits of Fenugreek:
Red onion is rich in a flavanol called quercetin. It is one of the most widely distributed bioflavonoids of nature, suggesting we need a lot of it in regular quantities; however, modern food-processing has stripped this vital ingredient from our food supply.
Uses and Benefits of Onion Extract:
Turmeric Root Extract
Turmeric is probably the most researched botanical on the planet right now. It is presumably the most powerful anti-inflammatory found in nature. It is also a very potent antioxidant and powerful adaptogen.
An active compound of turmeric, called curcuminoids, seems to scavenge for damaging particles in the body known as “free-radicals.” These properties help the body to prevent the short- and long-term effect of excess carb intake.
Uses and Benefits of Turmeric:
*Uniquely, Uncarb contains the world’s 1st water-soluble turmeric that is fully absorbable. We have a separate patent on this.
Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 4,000 years ago. The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words “ayur” (“life”) and “veda” (“science” or “knowledge”). When combined, this translates to “knowledge of life.”
Today, Ayurveda is becoming increasingly accepted as the world’s first fully organized system of healing. It organized medicine into eight specialized areas, including pediatrics, gynaecology, surgery, and internal medicine (to name a few).
Ancient Ayurvedic texts have even described the growth of a baby in the womb week by week, organ by organ.
In simple terms, epigenetics is the study of the biological mechanisms that will switch genes on and off. We know that powerful foods possess the ability to turn genes on and off.
Adults should take two (2) capsules per day; children should take one (1) per day.
A carb optimizer helps the body manage and adapt to the effects of rising blood sugar as a result of excessive carb intake that has become common today.
Uncarb®, as a carb optimizer, can turn one’s genes on and off over time if taken in small, regular doses.
Here are some things you will see in the first three days:
Here are some things you will see in three weeks:
As a carb optimizer, it improves the overall metabolism and actually enhances the benefits of a ketogenic or low carb diet.
The components and their benefits are:
Turmeric is nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory and probably the most researched botanical on the planet right now. It has one big problem—it is not water-soluble. As a result, less than 1% of it is absorbed by the body. Nearly all new research conducted on this miracle substance is to increase its absorption potential. Our parent company, Holista, has just filed a patent for the world’s 1st water-soluble turmeric that is entirely water-soluble and fully absorbable by the body.
The formula is being further enhanced. Two more carb-optimizing ingredients will be added to the formula soon. We are also working on urine test strips that will track levels of inflammation.
You can expect us to unveil new innovations at least twice a year. Our philosophy states that “products come and go but technology comes and grows.”
There are no known side effects of Uncarb® or its components. Allergies to these foods are quite rare. In Ayurveda, “food is medicine, and medicine is food.” In fact, all the components of Uncarb® have a 4000-year history as a spice, food, or medicine. These plant-based ingredients have been taken in small and large amounts for centuries. It is safe for all groups, all ages, and all stages of life.
Yes! Our pets are fed too many carbohydrates, something they would never have been exposed to in their natural carnivorous diets.
There are no known drug interactions. However, if taking medication, please consult with your health care professional before beginning.
