Excessive intake of sugar can negatively impact your health. Here are some examples of how it can mess your body up.
Brain – Sugar triggers your brain to release dopamine in your brain which makes you feel good and crave for sugary food to get that that ‘high’ and pleasurable feeling. This can cause blood glucose to spike continuously, in the long term, it can lead to health issue relating to diabetes.
Mood – Frequent sudden spikes and falls of blood glucose levels could affects one’s mood. Studies has linked high sugar intake to higher risk of depression in adults.
Joints – Sugar triggers inflammation in the body. In the joints, it can cause joint pain to worsen.
Heart – Excess sugar triggers the body to produce more insulin which causes artery walls to be inflamed, thickened and stiffened. This would stress and damage the heart over time, and could be the trigger for stroke or heart attack.
Kidneys – If one has diabetes, excess sugar in the blood can lead to kidney damage. In severe condition, it can lead to kidney failure.
Skin – Inflammation causes the skin to age prematurely. When sugar is consumed, it attaches itself to the proteins in the bloodstream and creates harmful molecules which age the skin, causing it to sag and wrinkle.
Weight – Studies have found that sugar makes a person gain weight. Excess amounts of sugar can inflame the fat cells, causing them to release chemicals that increase weight.
Liver – Excess sugar in the body can lead to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Mulbiotic is the key to healthy blood glucose. A natural sugar blocker formulated with 3 superfoods – organic Mulberry Leaf Extract enhanced with a proprietary synbiotic blend of shelf-stable LactoSpore® probiotics and Fenumannan® prebiotic. Mulbiotic helps to reduce sugar absorption after a carbo-rich meal and accelerates glucose metabolism to keep blood glucose levels within the healthy zone. Enjoy your favourite foods with peace of mind knowing your blood glucose would not spike erratically after a meal.
After carbohydrate from food is ingested and moved to the small intestine, it has to be broken down into simple glucose by a digestive enzyme, α-glucosidase before the glucose can be absorbed into the bloodstream. DNJ in Mulbiotic intercepts the enzyme from metabolising carbohydrate and hence reduces the amount of carbohydrate from being absorbed into the bloodstream. This helps to suppress a spike in blood glucose after a carbo-rich meal.
In the intestines, LactoSpore® Probiotic reacts with Fernumannan® Prebiotic to form short-chain fatty acids which help to modulate glucose metabolism to support healthy blood glucose levels.
Fenumannan® Prebiotic is a water-soluble fibre. It slows the digestion and absorption of carbohydrate, this helps to prevent a sudden spike in the blood glucose level.
Mulberry leaf is one of the oldest healing herbs. Dating back to more than 5,000 years ago, it had been used to treat fever, cough, high blood lipid, high blood pressure and high blood glucose. Its rich source of nutrients and minerals provide astounding healing benefits to restore health and wellness.
The key ingredient of Mulbiotic is Mulberry Leaf Extract. Comprising Organic Mulberry Leaf Full Spectrum Extract harvested from organic young mulberry trees in Sukarae-cho in Japan and Mulberry Leaf DNJ Extract, its low temperature processing enables the essential phenolic acids and flavonols to be retained. Mulbiotic mulberry leaf extracts contains exceptionally high percentage of 1-Deoxynojirimycin (DNJ) and quercetin 3-(6-malonylglucoside) (Q3MG), which are markers for superior mulberry.
DNJ (1-deoxynojirimycin) is an active component in mulberry leaf extract. Because DNJ is structurally similar to glucose, it can act as competitive inhibitors to prevent carbohydrates from binding α-glucosidase, a digestive enzyme in the small intestine. In so doing, DNJ helps to reduce the absorption and digestion of carbohydrates to support healthy blood glucose, balance insulin levels, support weight management, immunity and cardiovascular health.
Administration of 12 mg DNJ per day for 38 days resulted in significant suppression of postprandial blood glucose elevation and insulin secretion without hypoglycemia and other adverse events.
Whether you have a sweet tooth or are someone who must have carbohydrate in every meal, Mulbiotic safeguards your body from spikes in blood glucose levels after a carbo-rich or sugary meal.
Not only does Mulbiotic support healthy weight loss, it also helps to fight skin aging due the effects of sugar.
Excessive carbohydrate is the root cause of many health issues and chronic diseases. Mulbiotic helps to maintain blood glucose at a healthy level to support overall wellness.
Low temperature processing is key to retaining the precious nutrients and active compounds of the mulberry leaf. Mulbiotic is processed in low temperature with no chemicals used to ensure its phenolic acids and flavonols are optimally retained.
Not all mulberries are the same. Mulberry trees grown on the coastal regions are sturdier from having to withstand the harsh conditions and the fruits they bear are richer in nutrients. Mulbiotic is made from the leaves of white mulberry trees grown along the coastal regions of Japan.

In addition, Mulbiotic is packed with many vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin C, iron and modest amounts of potassium, vitamins E and K. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for skin, blood vessels, cartilage and muscles. Iron is a crucial mineral for transporting oxygen throughout the body, while potassium is imperative for lowering blood pressure and risks of heart disease. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects against oxidative stress and vitamin K is indispensable for blood clotting and bone building. On top of these, Mulbiotic is also rich in various types of antioxidants, including anthocyanins, cyanidin, chlorogenic acid, rutin and myricetin, which collectively help suppress oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart diseases and other chronic conditions.
Q: How does Mulbiotic help regulate healthy blood glucose levels?
A: Mulbiotic supports healthy blood glucose levels via 3 main mechanisms – blocking glucose absorption, accelerating glucose metabolism as well as slowing digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. In the intestines, dietary carbohydrates must be broken down into simple glucose by a digestive enzyme, α-glucosidase before the glucose can be absorbed into the bloodstream. DNJ (1-deoxynojirimycin) in Organic Mulberry Leaf Extract intercepts α-glucosidase enzyme from breaking down carbohydrate and hence reduces the amount of glucose from being absorbed into the bloodstream. This in turn helps suppress a spike in blood glucose after a high-carb or sugary meal. In addition, Organic Mulberry Leaf Extract is also rich in Q3MG (quercetin 3-(6-malonylglucoside)) flavonoids, which helps decrease blood glucose levels. Besides Organic Mulberry Leaf Extract, LactoSpore® Probiotic reacts with Fernumannan® Prebiotic to form short-chain fatty acids which help to modulate glucose metabolism to support healthy blood glucose levels. Furthermore, Fenumannan® Prebiotic, a water-soluble fiber, helps slow the digestion and absorption of carbohydrate, thereby delaying a sudden spike in the blood glucose level after meal.
Q: What are the health benefits of taking Mulbiotic?
A: In addition to regulating blood glucose levels, Mulbiotic supports healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, blood pressure and circulation, thereby maintaining optimal cardiovascular health. This formula also supports healthy digestive system, gut flora, bowel regularity and healthy weight loss by controlling appetite and promoting metabolism. Furthermore, Mulbiotic also supports strong immunity, vitality, healthy aging and premature skin aging. In a nutshell, Mulbiotic is beneficial to blood glucose levels, cardiovascular health, gastrointestinal health, weight management, skin health and overall wellness.
Q: How long does Mulbiotic take to reduce blood glucose levels?
A: Mulbiotic has both short- and long-term effects on blood glucose levels. When taken together with carbohydrate, the Organic Mulberry Leaf Extract in Mulbiotic helps reduce blood glucose levels on the day of intake. Study suggests that mulberry leaf extract could reduce the total blood glucose increment after the ingestion of carbohydrate 120 minutes later. Another study showed that long-term consumption (3 months) of mulberry leaf extract helps reduce postprandial (after meal) blood glucose as well as A1C levels, which is a blood test that provides information about the average blood glucose level for the past 3 months, with higher A1C percentage corresponding to higher average blood glucose levels. As we tend to consume staple carbo-rich daily, it is highly recommended to take Mulbiotic every day. This is not only beneficial for blood glucose but also good for gastrointestinal health and weight management.
Q: What is unique about Organic Mulberry Leaf Extract?
A: Mulberry leaf is one of the oldest healing herbs with a rich source of nutrients and minerals that help to restore health and wellness. Mulbiotic is developed by the Faculty of Medicine, Tottori University in Japan, its key ingredient – an organic mulberry leaf extract contains exceptionally high percentage of 1-Deoxynojirimycin (DNJ) and quercetin 3-(6-malonylglucoside) (Q3MG), the markers of superior mulberry. DNJ reduces glucose absorption and accelerates glucose metabolism to delay glucose spikes, while Q3MG flavonoids reduces blood glucose & cholesterol levels and suppresses the oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol) to prevent plaque build-up in the arteries. This proprietary extract is harvested from organic young mulberry trees in Japan, away from industrial pollution. Employing a low temperature processing, the extract retains the maximum amounts of essential phenolic acids and flavonols in the mulberry leaf.
Q: There are a wide variety of mulberry leaf extracts in the market. What are the key criteria to look out for good quality extract?
A: A good quality mulberry leaf extract can be distinguished by its colour, processing technology as well as species and origins. In terms of colour, premium mulberry leaf extract is bright green in colour; mulberry leaf extract that is brown in colour is of a lower quality. In addition to colour, appropriate processing technology is crucial to the nutritional value of mulberry leaf extract. Low temperature processing is the key to retaining the precious nutrients and active compounds of the mulberry leaf. Lastly, the species and origin of mulberry tree would also make a difference to the quality of mulberry leaf extract. Mulberry trees grown on the coastal regions are sturdier from having to withstand the harsh conditions and the fruits they bear are richer in nutrients.
Fulfilling the above 3 key criteria, the Organic Mulberry Leaf Extract in Mulbiotic would be considered as one of the best mulberry extracts available in the market. It is bright green in colour, processed under low temperature without chemicals and made from the leaves of white mulberry trees grown along the coastal regions of Japan. Mulbiotic delivers exceptionally high amounts of nutrients, including phenolic acids and flavonols.
Q: What is LactoSpore® probiotic and what makes it superior to other probiotics?
A: LactoSpore® is a spore of probiotic bacterium known as Bacillus coagulans. Supported by many research studies, Bacillus coagulans is known to promote strong immune system, maintain a healthy gastrointestinal system, suppress growth of harmful bacteria, mitigate gastrointestinal discomforts such as bloating, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain as well as regulate bowel movements, modulate glucose metabolism and maintain overall wellness.
Due to spore-forming nature, LactoSpore® is resistant to adverse environment, including high temperature, gastric acid, UV radiation, freezing and desiccation. Unlike typical probiotics, LactoSpore® probiotic does not require refrigeration. In the human body, LactoSpore® is able to withstand destruction by the stomach acid, bile acid and digestive enzymes. Upon reaching the small intestine, Bacillus coagulans spore is reactivated to germinate and proliferate rapidly to exert beneficial effects. Its superior ability to adhere to the intestinal wall enables LactoSpore® to effectively improves gut flora and boost the immune system. This proprietary probiotic produces lactic acid and other antimicrobial compounds which create an acidic environment to prevent the growth of disease-causing bacteria such as Clostridia which are responsible for abdominal bloating. LactoSpore® is granted a Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status, it is highly recommended for anyone who wish to improve his/her gastrointestinal health and blood glucose levels.
Q: What is Fenumannan prebiotic?
A: Fenumannans® is a natural extract from the seeds of Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), it contains a minimum of 60% of galactomannan, a water-soluble dietary fiber that is resistant to being broken down by gastric acid and pancreatic enzymes. This proprietary dietary fiber serves as a prebiotic and is fermented and utilized by LactoSpore® B. coagulans, to result in a significant amount of short-chain fatty acids being produced. Short-chain fatty acids are the main source of nutrient for the cells lining the colon. They also help support healthy blood glucose, reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes, obesity, inflammatory diseases, heart disease and many other conditions. Furthermore, Fenumannan® prebiotic slows the digestion and absorption of carbohydrate to help maintain healthy blood glucose levels.
Q: I consume carbo-rich foods in every meal, can I take more than 1 sachet a day?
A: Yes, you are encouraged to do so. For the best results, it is best to take 1 sachet before each meal, instead of taking multiple sachets at the same time. As Mulbiotic naturally blocks the excessive glucose absorption into the bloodstream, taking Mulbiotic before each carbohydrate-rich or sugary meal would effectively prevent sharp spike and sudden fall in blood glucose levels after the meal. In the short term, blood glucose spikes can lead to lethargy and hunger. In the long-term, the body may not be able to lower blood glucose effectively, this can lead to type-2 diabetes and other complications of diabetes.
Q: Why is excessive sugar intake bad for my skin?
A: With excessive sugar intake, the blood glucose levels may spike beyond what can be regulated by insulin, leading to high blood glucose levels. The elevated blood glucose can lead to glycation, a process where sugar molecules attach themselves to other molecules including proteins. Protein glycation reactions that lead to advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are thought to be one of the causes of skin aging. When collagen and elastin, the two crucial proteins that maintain skin firmness are linked to sugars, they become weaker, and the signs of aging become more apparent. The skin loses elasticity which leads to the appearance of wrinkles, sagging and dull skin appearance.
Q: How does one’s blood glucose level affect the weight?
A: Excessive carbohydrate intake leads to high blood glucose, which in turn leads to excessive insulin secretion. Oversecretion of insulin promotes fat storage and results in weight gain. In addition, certain types of dietary carbohydrates can cause imbalance to the gut flora, this a another contributing factor to weight gain.
Mulbiotic is a comprehensive formula that supports healthy weight management via multiple approaches. By blocking excessive glucose absorption into bloodstream, Mulbiotic helps to control blood glucose spikes which would otherwise lead to excess insulin secretion and insulin resistance. In addition, the LactoSpore® probiotic and Fenumannan® prebiotic in Mulbiotic promote healthy gut flora balance which has an influence on weight loss.
Q: When is the best time to take Mulbiotic?
A: Mulbiotic is best taken before a meal. This is because DNJ in Organic Mulberry Leaf Extract regulates blood glucose levels by blocking α-glucosidase activity, which catalyses the breakdown of complex carbohydrates to glucose. This in turn helps reduce glucose absorption into bloodstream to support healthy blood glucose levels.
Q: Does Mulbiotic require a prescription?
A: No, Mulbiotic is a natural supplement and not a medicine. Hence, no prescription is required. Nonetheless, always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider if you have a medical condition.
