Low Glycemic Index (GI) Ratings Have Proven Health Benefits
The Glycemic Index is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100,
according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating.
Lower GI foods improve glucose and lipid levels in those with diabetes, helps
control weight by mitigating appetite/hunger and also aids in the reduction
of insulin and insulin resistance. A lower GI is a positive attribute in overall
health and pulses are some of the lowest GI foods.
Good Fiber is an Unquestioned Benefit
Fiber is essential for rapid digestion as well as the maximum absorption and
assimilation of essential vitamins and minerals.
It increases stool weight allowing for bulkier stool that more easily passes
through the colon and reduces intestinal transit time. Good fiber is an
unquestioned benefit and pulses are some of the very best sources. For
Pulsar®, we have added red lentils as the primary pulse with peas. The
combination packs a very powerful nutritional punch by not only reducing
the glycemic index but also enhancing both digestibility through superior
dietary fiber. Good fiber is an unquestioned benefit and pulses are some of
the very best sources.
Antioxidants – Fighting the Free Radicals
Antioxidants are nature's way of fighting off potentially dangerous
molecules, or "free radicals", in the body that may come from synthetic
chemicals such as pesticides, plastics, and chlorine by-products.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that essentially feed off of otherwise
healthy molecules in order to survive. Everyday, tens of thousands of free
radicals are generated within the body causing cell damage, that if left
unchecked, can lead to chronic and degenerative disease. The combination
of red lentils and peas elevates antioxidant qualities to help fend off
