Supplements That Reduce Glycation



Apart from making the right food choices, you can also choose from a number of supplements that effectively battle the advanced glycation end products. Some of the best supplements that you can choose to counter the end products are:

L-carnosine – This is an amino acid that is present in some proteins and it is helpful in preventing glycation. It generates and enzyme that counterattacks the GEs already formed. It also works by decreasing neurodegenerative disorder attraction as well as that of inflammatory disease by removing sugars.

Meat has this important amino acid meaning that you are not at risk of many of the dangerous GEs when you eat meat compared to if you choose to eat bread and browned carbohydrates.

IC-5 – This is a blood sugar control herbal blend that has natural ingredients proven to have strong ability to keep blood sugar stable after meals. When the sugars are lowered then formation of AGEs is reduced. It can be bought online because it is not available in stores.

Seanol P™ – It is a seaweed extract from Ecklonia Cava. It is rare but very intriguing in terms of what it can do. ORAC testing found this product to have more than thrice the antioxidant power that blueberries and other antioxidant foods have.
It is therefore a super potential natural supplement and antioxidant for that matter that you might want to consider to boost your health and slow down aging in the process.
Benfotiamine – This is a synthetic Vitamin B1 form that is fat soluble substance. Studies have shown that it helps in stopping the formation of GEs and it works by blocking biochemical processes that lead to nerve, retinal, kidney and vascular damage associated with high blood pressure.
This synthetic supplement cannot be gotten naturally from herbs and foods and it is therefore important to take precaution before using it because you might never know what side effects it could have. Natural ingredient based supplements are generally safer that synthetic supplements and it therefore helps to be a little cautious with what you choose to use.

Pyridoxamine – This is a unique form of the beneficial vitamin B6 which interferes with body reactions to toxic glycation. It is definitely worth the try considering that Vitamins B6 are involved in loads of enzymatic reactions that are beneficial to the body.

Antioxidants – Supplements that are powerful antioxidants include alpha lipoic acid and astanthaxin from Krill Oil. They have much more than just the antioxidant powers and therefore make some of the best additions you should have in your anti-aging program.
You can most definitely get foods that are high in antioxidants but sometimes supplementing can go a long way especially when you get very little amounts in the foods that you eat.

Spices – They really cannot be forgotten in the GEs fighting list. They have antioxidants that are very powerful and compounds that control the response of blood sugars especially after you take your meals. Four of the best spices that you can choose are cayenne, turmeric, cinnamon and ginger but there is a long list of others that can prove to be just as beneficial to your body.
They can be used in food but it can also be a good idea to get some of the in capsule supplement that you can easily take on a daily basis.

The quality of the supplements that you choose goes a long way in determining the exact results you get so make sure that you buy what you need from reputable stores or suppliers.
