RIMOUSKI (QUEBEC), February 12, 2019 – innoVactiv, a Canadian company dedicated to the development of science-based speciality ingredients, is pleased to announce the publication of its latest human clinical trial on its ingredient InSea2® in the peer-reviewed journal Phytotherapy Research.

The publication presents the results of a 6-month, randomized, double-blinded, placebocontrolled clinical trial involving 65 disglycemic subjects not using medication. Findings include significant reductions in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), fasting plasma glucose, post-prandial glucose and insulin-resistance index (HOMA-IR) compared with placebo, as well as normalization of glycemic status in 18.2% of treated subjects versus 0% in placebo group.

“We are thrilled about these new results, as they demonstrate the dramatic impact the use of InSea2® can have when taken on a daily basis. While all treated and placebo subjects followed the same strict diet and exercise regimen, researchers noticed a clear degradation of the glycemic condition in the placebo group, while two thirds of InSea2® subjects improved their glycemic status over the 6 months of the trial period”, said Jocelyn Bérubé, Executive Vice-President, Science and Regulatory Affairs for innoVactiv. “While our previous clinical studies have shown an immediate benefit of a single InSea2® intake on glycemic stress and brain acuity, these new results now clearly demonstrate the benefits of a daily use of InSea2® on glycemic health when taken over a longer period of time”, added Mr. Bérubé.
