min read

Essential Takeaways

Though only a few foods or ingredients have achieved this milestone, the FDA has recently approved a health claim for resistant starch.
Specifically, they have said that high-amylose maize resistant starch may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
One of the easiest ways to add resistant starch to your diet is through supplementation. You can add resistant starch to smoothies and as a flour replacement.

Health claims are extraordinarily difficult to receive from the FDA, especially when it comes to a food or dietary ingredient. They often tell you what you can’t say about a health product, but very rarely tell you that you can make a claim.

So, when an ingredient does get a health claim, it really is a breakthrough in science and a huge milestone.

And you know what has an FDA health claim?

High-amylose maize resistant starch – which is exactly what Jo’s Resistant Starch is!

The FDA has stated that high-amylose maize resistant starch may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Consuming this type of resistant starch improves insulin sensitivity, which is an important biomarker for your blood sugar levels.

Most people think that type II diabetes is directly caused by eating too much sugar or being overweight and inactive, but that’s not the full picture.

How To Regulate Your Blood Sugar

These definitely play a huge part in increasing your risk of developing diabetes, but there are plenty of other factors – including your family history, age and ethnicity- that all contribute to your overall risk.

Due to there being so many contributors to this disease, the best thing you can do is to implement changes in your life that can help regulate your blood sugar levels.

One of the easiest ways to do this is by simply adding resistant starch to your diet!

Resistant starch isn’t digested like the starches found in things like pasta or bread. Instead, it travels all the way to your large intestine, and feeds your healthy gut bacteria.

Not only does this smooth out the spike in blood sugar levels that usually comes from eating starches, but it also comes with a whole host of other benefits, like a boost in your energy and a huge improvement to your gut health!

So why Jo’s Resistant Starch?

Some resistant starch mixes also contain inflammatory ingredients that can result in a number of negative side effects, and who wants to start one fire while they try to put out another?

This is exactly why I put together a huge team of PhDs, MDs, and scientists to develop a Resistant Starch blend that is made with clean and simple ingredients, so that you can get all of the health benefits without the drawbacks of other resistant starches.

Taking preventative action and regulating your blood sugar is key to living a long and healthy life, and we’ve made it easy for you to get started – by putting it all in one scoop.
