A very interesting effect MT2 brings about is its ability to increase insulin sensitivity during researchers' trials . Heijboer AC et al (2005) studied the effects MT2 has on hepatic and whole-body insulin sensitivity . Results showed administration of MT2 increased insulin-mediated glucose disposal but did not affect the capacity of insulin to suppress EGP . MT2's acute effect on insulin sensitivity was further highlighted during studies done by the Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine . Banno R et al . (2007) examined the effects MT2 had on insulin sensitivity in diet-induced obese rats . The insulin tolerance test showed that insulin sensitivity was significantly improved in the MT2 group compared to the pair-fed group . Além disso, MT2 treatment increased the number of small-sized adipocytes in epididymal white adipose tissues , suggesting that MT2 increased insulin sensitivity through action on the white adipose tissues .
