GTF : Oral anti diabetic substance discovered

Research in the Department of Biology at the Faculty of Science and Science Education of the University of Haifa has discovered a substance that may become an oral treatment for diabetes and its complications. The substance, which is derived from yeast, is called Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF).

"The research is now at the stage where the substance has been successfully tested on diabetic rats and was found to reduce sugar and lipids in the blood of the treated animals. The next stage of the research is to evaluate GTF efficacy in humans," said Dr. Nitsa Mirsky, who is conducting the research.

Diabetes is recognized as a major global health problem. Diabetes affects 5%-10% of the population in developed countries, while in developing countries the disease has been recently declared an "epidemic". Diabetics suffer from lack of insulin or a deficiency in the body's ability to respond to insulin. Diabetes is a chronic illness with no cure and can lead to kidney failure, heart problems, strokes or blindness, as well as other complications. Approximately 50% of diabetics are treated with insulin, which has to be injected, while the rest are treated with oral medications which tend to be more difficult to regulate and often have side effects.

According to Dr. Mirsky, there are a number of problems with insulin treatment; the main one being that insulin is not always an effective treatment, due to gradual development of resistance to the hormone.

An additional problem is that insulin doses are not necessarily synchronized with the patient's physical activities or eating intervals. A large dose of insulin injected before a diabetic patient eats, for example, can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar (hypoglycemia) that can result in a diabetic coma and ultimately death. In addition, the fact that insulin must be injected is in and of itself difficult for many patients.

This current research was conducted on two levels: on diabetic rats and on the molecular-cell level. The results indicate that GTF acts similarly to insulin in the rats, lowering the level of glucose, and of LDL-cholesterol, (the "bad" cholesterol), and raising the level of HDL-cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol). GTF inhibited oxidation processes that can cause atherosclerosis and result in further complications of the disease like strokes and heart attacks.

Moreover, when GTF is given at early stage of the disease, it could prevent or delay renal complications. GTF also helped to prevent cataracts and retinal damage. It was also found that GTF improves the effectiveness of injected insulin. Further research is needed in order to find a combined regimen of insulin and GTF as a potential treatment for diabetes.

Endocrinologist Explained About GTF

Prof. Mao, Chia-Hung Frank (Dairy Specialist and Endocrinologist) successful in transferring the technology of“Glucose Tolerance Factor” to Maxluck Company.

By using lactoferrin, a kind of protein, as the carrier of trivalent chromium, the body easily absorbs the chromium and blood glucose levels are lowered

In a news dispatch from Yahoo! Taiwan News, the endocrinologist’s breakthrough was described as such.

"Let’s say the [human] cell is a house and insulin is the key [to] the house. Without chromium, which is the person using the key, the door cannot be opened and glucose cannot enter the cell.

"Once again, Professor Mao discovered that lactoferrin is the best carrier for trivalent chromium as our body can easily absorb it."

Trivalent chromium from natural foods is not easily absorbed by the body. Studies have shown that the body absorbs only up to 3% of the substance.

Chromium is a constituent ingredient of what is called the Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). It works closely with insulin to facilitate the uptake of glucose into cells. In individuals with impaired glucose tolerance, such as those with diabetes, hypoglycemia, and obesity, supplementation with chromium is of paramount importance. Without chromium, blood sugar levels stay elevated because the action of insulin is blocked so that glucose is not transported into the cells.

According to Dr. Mao, more than 80 percent of all diabetic cases arise from lack of GTF chromium as in the case of most Type II diabetics.

Dr. Mao also revealed that trivalent chromium in a natural form imitates the action of colostrum or a mother’s first milk. Colostrum has vast amounts of antibodies that serve as protection for the infant’s throat, lungs and intestines.

Dr. Mao combined chromium with colostrum extracts to create a product that mimics the potency of human breast milk.

The Perth scientist also made the world-first discovery that human breast milk contains stem cells is confident that within five years scientists will be harvesting them to research treatment for conditions as far-reaching as spinal injuries, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.

“We already know how breast milk provides for the baby’s nutritional needs, but we are only just beginning to understand that it probably performs many other functions,” says Dr Cregan, a molecular biologist at The University of Western Australia.

The lactoferrin is a lycoprotein that is capable of combining with metal ions. Each lactoferrin molecule can be combined with two trivalent chromium ions.”

Laboratory tests were carried out to ensure the effectiveness of the GT&F Milk Powder produced by Dr. Mao through Maxluck Biotechnology Corporation.

The manufacturer of the product has secured approvals and endorsements from the Food and Drug Administrations of more than 20 countries, including the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines.

How to Consume GT&F Efficiently

For your information, our GT&F are classified as food by Ministry of Health (malaysia) and even health department from other countries. So, this GT&F can be consumed anytime.

However, for the first 2 weeks, we recommend you to take 2 capsules, empty stomach in the morning before breakfast or even before taken medications. Your body have to adapt with GT&F. Avoid to take medication immediately after taken GT&F. Gap 1 to 2 hours so that the effectiveness and formation og GTF in the body will not be interrupted.

Within the first two weeks after taken GT&F, you may or may not have the healing symptoms. Don't be alarmed as GT&F does not contain toxic or drugs. These personal feelings and symptoms are short term in nature. Your body need to cleanse or detoxify. Please read the attachement carefully so that you can understand well.

After two weeks later, you can start to consume 4 capsules daily, empty stomach in the morning before breakfast. You can continue medication. However, when doctor see the result/ health condition is better, normally he/ she will reduce the dosage of the drugs should you taken everyday. please consult with doctor before stopped the medication.
