Galactose is a component of milk sugar (lactose) and is mainly found in milk and dairy products and in higher concentrations in breast milk. Galactose is very similar to glucose, but acts independently of insulin and is therefore safe for diabetics. Galactose is an insulin-independent energy source for the body and a component of the sugar layer (glycocalyx) of all cell membranes.
Next to galactose, Galactose Plus contains a carefully formulated herbal complex including green tea extract, ginkgo biloba, ashwagandha, schisandra, maca and yams. Ginkgo biloba contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system. Maca and ashwagandha are important for healthy mental function. As an adaptogen ashwagandha also contributes to better relaxation.
Vitamin C, B3 and B12 also support the function of the nervous system and mental health, and help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
