    Cinnulin-pf .... PWO???

    Ever hear of it?? Reading up on this stuff, Its active ingredient is hydroxychalcone..it imitates the effects of insulin and boosts insulin release. Could this be used PWO instead of dextrose?? its a water soluble cinnimon extract

    Its basically like using R-ALA, Cinnimon is well known glucose dispersal agent. No need for it PWO.

    Here's an interesting article (research study) on hydroxychalcone.

    The study shows the similar properties of MHCP and Insulin .

    A hydroxychalcone derived from cinnamon functions as a mimetic for insulin in 3T3-L1 adipocytes

    Do not like that.

    its an insulin mimetic and sensitizer, but its not the same as r-lipoic. There are actually a lot of compounds that are "similar" with respect to glucose uptake... but similar can have a wide variety of impacts.

    it is likely a ppargamma agonist
