Obesity-fighting sugar to be added to breads, cereals

November 3, 2011, Tampa, FL – A diabetic-friendly sugar that has been proven to help reduce sugar intake will be added to popular breads and cereals to combat the rise of obesity in the United States.
Sugir is real sugar that contains an all-natural additive called Emulin. Studies have shown that Emulin, a patented formulation of compounds found in fruits like grapefruits and berries, blocks the absorption of sugar by more than 30 per cent.
“Sugar is not the problem, but rather how much sugar we consume,” said Daryl Thompson, president of ATM Metabolics, the research firm that discovered Emulin. “By adding this natural compound of Emulin to sugar, Sugir now has the power to reverse diabetes.”
A new independent study conducted by Dr. Dale Wickstrom-Hill, director of Perfect Form Weight Loss Clinic, LLC., in Winter Haven, Fla. found that a group of overweight yet otherwise healthy individuals lost an average of seven pounds by doing nothing more than adding Emulin to their diets.
During the study, 24 participants were split into two groups; one half received Emulin while the other received a placebo. Both groups received a 250 mg capsule three times a day. Participants were not required to change their diets or exercise routine, just simply take the capsules three times a day.
Participants were weighed and measured in the chest, waist, hips and thigh areas before starting the study and every week throughout. Medical professionals also measured their blood pressure, respiration, pulse, body mass index and fat percentage.
After one month of taking Emulin, 12 participants saw an average loss of seven pounds as well as a decrease in their body fat percentage. The group had lost over seven inches in the chest area, 6.9 inches in the waist, eight inches in the hips region and just over four inches on their thighs.
The study concluded: “Emulin can assist with weight loss in obese individuals without change in dietary intake.”
Emulin has been available online and at GNC stores, but in the coming weeks, ATM Metabolics says Emulin will be added to popular breads and cereals.
“By having Emulin in the food supply, we will see a rapid reduction in obesity and diabetes rates,” said Dr. Joseph Ahrens, vice-president of ATM Metabolics. “Much like what folate in breads did for birth defect rates, Emulin will be able to do the same for obesity and diabetes rates, which continue to skyrocket in the United States.”
ATM Metabolics says that Emulin slows the conversion of complex carbohydrates to simple sugars as well as reduces sugar absorption from the gut to the bloodstream while stimulating absorption from the bloodstream to muscle tissue.
