What are Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors
Alpha-glucosidase is one of the enzymes responsible for breaking down carbohydrates to smaller sugar particles like glucose, in order for the carbohydrates to be absorbed.
Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors work by competitive and reversible inhibition of these intestinal enzymes. They slow the digestion of carbohydrates and delay glucose absorption. This results in a smaller and slower rise in blood glucose levels following meals, and effectively throughout the day.
