About Blood Sugar and THBA

Our Lead Product: THBA

Glycemicon’s lead product, THBA, is a type of bile acid that is naturally occurring. It optimises body fat tissue to maintain normal blood sugar levels – the key benefit for people with prediabetes.

Glycemicon`s first product optimises body fat tissue to maintain normal blood sugar levels, a key benefit for prediabetes.

Overweight and obesity is a major risk factor for pre-diabetes as evidenced by 39% of pre-diabetics being overweight (Source: WHO/CDC). Being overweight gradually causes the body to lose its responsiveness to insulin, the hormone that mediates efficient blood glucose uptake into cells. A reason for this is that the storage capacity of the existing fat cells has been exhausted, resulting in reduced absorption of glucose and increased the release of fatty acids. This is associated with a continuous decline of the body`s ability to maintain normal blood glucose levels.

THBA maintains normal fat cell tissue.

THBA maintains normal body fat tissue and optimises nutrient storage, insulin sensitivity and maintains normal blood sugar levels. Our aim is therefore to promote healthy fat and normal blood glucose by optimizing normal functionality of the body fat tissue.

THBA - a natural product

THBA occurs naturally in foods and Glycemicon is developing THBA as a novel, natural product to support a healthy diet.

Because of the lack of products for the management of prediabetes, prediabetic people represent a highly interesting target group for THBA.

In addition to human use, the THBA represents a very promising way to manage pre-diabetes in pets, in particular in cats.
