Diabetes: a Global Epidemic
Diabetes is a growing public health threat of the 21st century. It is a chronic condition in which the body cannot maintain healthy levels of sugar in the blood. Unhealthy levels of sugar in blood can lead to short- and long-term health complications such as heart disease, kidney failure, blindness and loss of limbs.
Globally, the incidence of diabetes has increased at an alarming rate in recent decades. In Singapore, the number of people with diabetes is expected to rise from 440,000 in 2014 to one million by 2050, with projected healthcare costs from diabetes expected to rise beyond SGD 940 million in 2014 to SGD 1.8 billion in 2050. About one in seven people in Singapore have pre-diabetes. Without intervention, at least 35 per cent of those with pre-diabetes will progress to Type 2 diabetes within eight years.
Those with pre-diabetes have a higher blood sugar level than normal and are unable to process sugar (glucose) properly. As a result, sugar accumulates in the bloodstream instead of doing its normal job of fuelling the cells that make up muscles and other tissues.
What is MomoriX®?
Entity Health’s MomoriX® is a natural supplement that can be used by people who are concerned about their blood sugar levels and is able to be taken as part of the defence against pre-diabetes progressing into Type 2 diabetes. Together with a strategy of maintaining a healthy weight, adopting a healthy diet and regular physical activity, people with pre-diabetes can reduce their risk of developing diabetes.
MomoriX® is formulated with natural plant-based active ingredients:
Momordica Charantia (Momordica) 200mg
Gymnema Sylvestre (Gymnema) 150mg
CursolTM, a patented formulation of curcumin that is 300x better absorbed than normal curcumin 150mg
Momordica and Gymnema are indigenous medicinal plants to Asia, South America, India and East Africa and have traditionally been used in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. Clinical studies have shown that these ingredients promote a hypoglycaemic effect through the uptake of glucose from the bloodstream, thereby enabling improved glucose control. While both ingredients harness the ability to stimulate insulin release, Gymnema has also been found to promote the regeneration of islet cells in the pancreas, leading to improved insulin secretion.
Curcumin, the major constituent of turmeric, possesses strong anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have also shown that Curcumin reduces post-meal glycaemic response and insulin demand in healthy individuals. Cursol™, used in MomoriX®, is highly soluble and bioavailable compared to other forms of curcumin.
