Anti Glycation – Slowing The Aging Process And Enjoying A Longer Life!
As humans age, proteins in their bodies become irreversibly damaged by glycation reactions. Glycation is the cross-linking of proteins and sugars to form non-functioning structures called advanced glycation end products or AGE. It is the mechanism behind the accelerated destruction of cells. tissues, and organs observed in diabetics.
In the laboratory, glycation’s effect on living tissue was found to be identical to the process by which meat is browned when cooked at high temperatures. Healthy proteins also turn brown in the presence of excess glucose and become functionally impaired.
Scientist have confirmed that this destructive process may also occur in healthy individuals when blood glucose levels are sustained above 85 mg/dL, a commonplace occurrence after a heavy meal is consumed.
The damage from glycation is irreversible but fortunately a form of vitamin B1 called benfotiamine, the fat-soluble of this B vitamin, protects cells to prevent glycation and the accelerated aging triggered by elevated blood sugar levels.
Anti Glycation Skin Care
Benfotiamine supports healthy blood sugar metabolism and effectively modulates multiple destructive biochemical pathways that are induced by higher than desirable blood glucose levels. It supports the health of kidneys, eyes, nerves, heart, and the endothelial lining of the blood vessels.
Another substance that is a powerful anti-glycation agent is L-Carnosine, a dipeptide which is found in the brain, heart, skin, muscles, kidneys, and stomach. In addition to its anti-glycation properties, L-Carnosine also supports brain function by reducing lipid peroxidation and stabilizing cell membranes.
Pyridoxal 5′-phospate or P-5-P, the active form of vitamin B6, has also been shown to protect against both lipid and protein glycation reactions associated with cellular damage and the aging process.
An outstanding product from Life Extension, their Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer, includes all of these and other ingredients to protect against glycation, promote a healthy inflammation response, and prevent mitochondrial decay.
