Low Gi Diet

Low Gi Diet – Mechanism of Action

Low GI diets and metabolic syndrome

Low GI diets decrease insulin resistance and insulin levels, causing plasma glucose reduction, decrease free fatty acids levels, inflammation and endothelial dysfunction, causing an important reduction of cardiovascular risk factors.

Reduced hyperinsulinemia associated with a low-GI diet may reduce CVD risk through effects on oxidative stress, blood pressure, serum lipids, coagulation factors, inflammatory mediators, endothelial function and thrombolytic function
