Overview InformationAvocado sugar extract is a chemical taken from avocado fruit and used as medicine.
People take avocado sugar extract to lose weight.
How does it work?Developing research suggests avocado sugar extract might block the effects of insulin and prevent the break down of sugar (glucose).
Uses & Effectiveness
Insufficient Evidence for
- Weight loss.
- Other conditions.
Side Effects & SafetyIt is not known if avocado sugar extract is safe.
Special Precautions & Warnings:Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of avocado sugar extract during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Diabetes: There is concern that avocado sugar extract might make diabetes worse because it seems to block the effects of insulin. This reduces the amount of sugar that the body breaks down and increases blood sugar levels.
Surgery: Avocado sugar extract might affect bloodsugar levels. There is some concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using avocado sugar extract at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
Be cautious with this combination
