Provinal® contains purified palmitoleic acid, which is formed in the body from the conversion of glucose to fatty acids. It can also be obtained from plant and marine sources. This fatty acid has been shown to support healthy cholesterol and healthy levels of inflammatory parameters (C-reactive protein).
Palmitoleic acid acts as a direct regulator of metabolism, with actions including:
- Suppression of adipocyte cytokine expression;
- Promotion of pancreatic B cell proliferation and secretory function to support insulin production and glucose management;
- Enhancement of skeletal muscle glucose uptake;
- Stimulation of a nuclear receptor involved in fatty acid metabolism, as well as modulation of cell proliferation and differentiation.
Provinal® contains no GMO ingredients. Each softgel contains less than 1% palmitic acid, which is less than the amount of palmitic acid contained in half of a macadamia nut.
