  1. The post on this nutritional flour is attractive. but to what extent does it lower blood sugar and by what physiological mechanism since the profile shows it also contains carbohydrate (about 10 times the protein value)?

      Thank you for your question – I have looked at this extensively and have
      found with my own research that it does have all those properties.

      In fact I use this flour myself and have seen it lower my blood glucose.

      If you want lots and lots of research – don’t look for natural agents – we don’t have the money for that.

      We have extensive knowledge going back years and we wish we did have lots of money for university studies.

      But for now only the drug companies have the type of money.

      But I am hopeful for things to change.
