Scientists, physicians, nutritionists and dietitians all over the world agree that meals with too much sugar and fast carbs result in repeated blood sugar spikes that, in the long run, put a lot of strain and stress on our bodies. Some years ago, experts in food and nutrition at Lund University in Sweden found that a special mix of amino acids and a mineral could have a beneficial effect on the blood sugar spike following a meal. Repeated clinical trials confirmed that when this mix, dissolved in water, was served before, and with a meal rich in sugar and fast carbs, it was able to reduce blood sugar rise by 20-30%. This research marked the beginning of the development of Good Idea® – The Swedish Sugar Buster. The goal was to develop an attractive product that could help our bodies handle the fast carb and sugar effects following a meal. Now it´s here, and it comes with a Structure/Function-claim, proudly printed on every single can:
