NGC™ NUTRITION

NGC™ NUTRITION Indevex, a biotechnology company specialized in natural nutrition.

In the 1990s, a Canadian researcher showed how the learning ability and life quality of hyperactive children can be improved by a specialized diet. The results were groundbreaking and captured the attention of Indevex, a biotechnology company specialized in developing natural nutrition solutions to be used as part of the treatment of to be used as diet interventions in certain conditions.



Tests and pilot studies showed how a special combination of proteins, carbohydrates and fat (NGC™ nutrition formula) had a positive effect on various health conditions, such as obesity, diabetes and malnutrition.



In the beginning of 2000, the foundation of the now patented NGC™ technology was laid. Indevex conducted extensive research and verification work together with a team from Lund University. The objective was to confirm the positive effects of NGC™ as a nutrition intervention in the treatment of metabolic diseases focusing on how and in what form NGC™ should be used. This resulted in new knowledge about how nutrition can be used to stabilize post prandial blood sugar response and control the body weight.

Extensive work was put into preparing and refining nutrition formulas and on conducting market tests was followed by the development of concepts and product platforms.



Since 2009, Indevex NGC™ products have been available in 45 countries and more than 70 million portions have been sold. Several hundred thousand people have received help in revising their diet using NGC™.

NGC™ FUNCTION

How the NGC™ nutrition formula functions

NGC™ IS A 100% NATURAL NUTRITION FORMULA CONTAINING A BALANCE OF ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS THAT LOWERS THE BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL (LOW GI/GL)*. A GENEROUS SHARE OF HIGHLY POTENT PROTEIN AND A LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX RESULT IN PROLONGED ABSORPTION OF NUTRIENTS IN THE INTESTINES, WHICH INCREASES THE FEELING OF FULLNESS AND SUPPORTS A LOW AND BALANCED POST PRANDIAL BLOOD SUGAR RESPONSE.
The three easily accessible natural protein sources supplement each other and satisfy a large share of the daily need of all eight essential amino acids, based on scientific observations (WHO 2008).
The combination with the essential omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids in the recommended ratio (1:2) effectively supports the daily production of new cells. Slow carbohydrates and soluble fibers contribute to low and stable blood sugar levels, while at the same time improve the intestinal well-being.
The ingredients include a broad spectrum of natural vitamins, minerals and trace substances. A high concentration of vitamins C and B12 contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system, the production of red blood cells and the reduction of the feeling of fatigue.
B-GLUCOSE RESPONSE
*GI – glycemic index – is a measure of how a certain food affects your blood sugar level after a meal. It is compared to glucose (pure sugar) which has a glycemic index of 100. According to WHO, a Gl index of less than 55 is considered low.


“All twenty amino acids in optimal balance and all eight essential amino acids in the right concentration”


NGC™ INGREDIENTS

A balance of natural ingredients.


PEA PROTEIN
A vegetable protein with a favorable amino acid profile specifically rich in lysine and arginine.

WHEY PROTEIN
A rich protein source that includes all essential amino acids and is one of the most high quality proteins. Whey protein has a high level of leucine.

OMEGA-3 WHOLE EGG
Nourishing fats, minerals and vitamins, containing high-quality protein with all essential amino acids. NGC™ special eggs come from hens that have been eating special vegetarian food rich in linseeds for at least three months, which renders the exact balance between the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.

ROSE HIP
Rose hips are rich in vitamin C and fibre, containing plant sterols and a low GI index.

APPLE
Contain fibers and pectin (gel forming) and a low GI index.

SUGAR BEET FIBRE
A natural product produced from Swedish sugar beets with a very high content of roughage. Contains both soluble and insoluble fibers.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND

Indevex, a biotechnology company specialized in natural nutrition.

Since 2002, the health implications of NGC™ have been validated in some twenty scientific observational studies, on the effect of the nutritional powder on blood sugar levels, weight, blood pressure subjectively rated health parameters, etc.



The studies have been conducted in cooperation with Lund University, Sahlgrenska Academy and the University of Sydney, which completed an important study establishing NGC’s low GI value.



On the basis of the positive findings of the validity studies, Indevex has launched extensive research programs in the past few years in order to gather documented medical proof of NGC’s effects.



An international network of opinion leaders in medical science is now engaged in studying NGC™.

FAQ

Questions and answers.

The NGC macronutrients provide the body with essential building blocks, needed for the continuous maintenance of organs and tissues, cell function etc around the clock. High quality nutrition, as in NGC, protects the body from many diseases closely associated with nutrition.

Yes, we only use natural ingredients and flavours.

The NGC™ Ingredient contains no added sugar. The sugar and carbohydrates in the blend derives from the natural ingredients (apple, rosehip, sugar beet fibre).

Fatty acids that are required by the human body but cannot be made in sufficient quantity from other substrates, and therefore must be obtained from food, are called essential fatty acids. NGC™ Preload contains the two important essential fatty acids, Omega-3 and 6, both polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). These contain linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), widely distributed in plant oils. The human body has a limited ability to convert ALA into the longer-chain n-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which also can be obtained from fish. The balance between Omega 3 and 6 is vital for health; the ratio in NGC™ is 1:2, which is the recommended level to stay healthy.

NGC™ contains carbohydrates that are slowly digested. Carbohydrates are divided into slow (complex) and fast (simple). Slow carbohydrates take longer to break down, such as fibre-rich vegetables and beans, while white sugar and white flour are almost instantly made available to the body as blood sugar. Foods with fibres and complex carbohydrates have a low GI.

NGC™ has three different sources of protein: eggs, peas and whey (from milk). Protein forms the body’s building blocks and is largely found in meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk and soy products, beans and lentils. Peas and protein from peas are sometimes called “the meat of the vegetable kingdom”, thanks to their rich and beneficial amino acid composition. Peas are particularly rich in lysine and arginine amino acids. Whey protein is a rich protein source including all of the essential amino acids needed in a daily diet, and is biologically one of the most potent proteins. Whey protein contains a high level of leucine, which promotes the synthesis of muscle protein and muscle growth. The egg is naturally full of nutritional value thanks to its high protein content with essential amino acids, lipids, minerals and vitamins. NGC™ ´s amino acids are essential for life. NGC™ products provide a high content of essential amino acids, important to get on a daily basis since the body is unable to produce these amino acids.

NGC™ contains carefully selected ingredients:, Proteins from whey (milk), egg and peas, , It has carbohydrates from apples and rosehips, fibre from sugar beet and Omega-3 eggs (hens that have been eating special vegetarian food rich in linseeds for at least three months, which renders the exact balance between the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.). All ingredients are natural and have been combined to provide a health promoting balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates from high quality sources, also with a natural content of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. The three sources of protein cover approximately 1/3 of the body’s need for essential amino acids (NGC has a high amino acid score according to WHO criteria) which is important in building and maintaining muscle mass. The omega-3 and 6 fatty acids ratio is within the recommended ratio 1:2-4. Rosehip and apple are naturally rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C which is an important antioxidant. NGC™ contains both water-soluble fibre and water-insoluble fibre.
