The mechanism behind metformin is that it increases insulin sensitivity by increasing the number of muscle and fat cell insulin receptors and the attraction for the receptor. Metformin also decreases blood sugar production in the liver and its absorption by the intestines or stomach. This in turn improves the body’s response to the effects of insulin. Scientists also believe that the guanidine compounds in metformin have potential health benefits.
