StarchMate Capsules


  We suggest maintaining daily supplementation for at least 3 months.  

Most modern diets are not as hardy in terms of fiber intake and usually include an over-ingestion of starch, which in turn contribute to metabolic disorders.  StarchMate® Capsules contain 3 natural ingredients to restore gut health.

1. Whole Profile Fucoidan (WPF)
Low Glycemic Index (GI) diets are used to prevent the rapid increase of blood glucose level after meal. Pizza, pasta, noodles and breads are all popular foods made by grain flours.  They all have a high GI. Simpson Biotech’s all- new Whole Profile Fucoidan (WPF) formulation is made up of enzymatically hydrolyzed brown seaweed extracts which can significantly inhibit both the amylase and glucosidase in gastrointestinal tract (Table1). According to our study results, oral administration of fucoidan before meals reduced postprandial blood glucose (fig1). Long-term supplementation with fucoidan reduced fasting blood glucose levels and increased glucose tolerance (fig2A, B) in diabetic rats.

2. Oligo Chitosan
Oligo Chitosan, officially named Chitooligosaccharide (COS), refers to small molecule hydrolyzed chitosan, whose degree of polymerization (DP) is about 2-10. The most attracted bioactivity of COS is to reduce factors causing metabolic syndrome and other activities include anti-oxidation, anti-inflammatory, and immune regulation (Liaqat, F. et al., Carbohydr Polym, 2018. 184: p. 243-259).
Simpson Biotech has confirmed that oral COS supplement reduced body weight gain rate, blood glucose, and TG level of serum and liver.

3. Selected Probiotics
Probiotics are live microorganisms which provide health benefits by improving or restoring the gut flora.
Simpson Biotech StarchMate®  Capsules contains 2 specific probiotics: B. lactis and Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which have been widely confirmed in the scientific literature to be blood glucose regulators (Louto R. et al, Br J Nutr. 2010 Jun;103(12):1792-9).
