- Designed to inhibit the effects of glycation on a physical and cellular level;
- Protects against tissue, cell and vascular damage.
Anti-Glycation Formula provides the elements that work synergistically to combat and inhibit the unwelcome effects of glycation.
Glycation is a process that involves the denaturation of proteins. It is believed to be a significant factor in accelerating the whole ageing process, both at a physical and cellular level. Protein glycation, sometimes called caramelisation, occurs when a sugar reacts with a protein, resulting in glycated proteins which can neither be destroyed nor released by the cells in which they accumulate. This can lead to tissue, cell and vascular damage, all of which are selective markers of ageing.
Along with following basic healthy eating guidelines, it is essential to ingest elements that can specifically protect against glycation:
|Daily dose : 4 capsules
Number of doses per pack : 30
|Amount per dose|
|Sodium R-lipoate||80 mg|

Oxidative stress is what happens when our cells are attacked by free radicals. In excess, these unstable molecules overwhelm our defences, damaging the body. Here we take a look at their sources and consequences, and the ways in which we can help keep them under control.
Ageing is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors: DNA shortening, oxidative stress, glycation... Here we take a look at the ageing process, its causes, and the ways in which we can slow it down.
Inflammation is a mechanism used by the body to respond to harmful stimuli. But when that response is excessive, the body suffers. Here, in 10 points, are the essential facts.
