On Tuesday, January 20, 2015, Boston Therapeutics, Inc. (BTHE-OTC) released additional trial results from its Sydney University study that showed consumption of sugardown® tablets prior to sugary beverages was found to significantly reduce the postprandial glucose, fructose, and insulin responses to the sugary soft drink beverage. Every subject had a reduction response. Specifically, two sugardown® tablets were found to reduce glucose and fructose levels by up to a total of 20% and insulin levels by up to 14%. Four sugardown® tablets were found to reduce total glucose and fructose levels by up to 28% and insulin levels by up to 18%. These new data, which includes fructose levels, are in addition to the topline study results that were announced earlier in January that there was an average reduction in glycemic index (GI) of approximately 10% following soft drink consumption with two sugardown® tablets.
