  • The ultimate AGE inhibitors

    The ultimate AGE inhibitors We’ve known for several decades that the process of glycosylation is one of the most important causes of aging, perhaps equally as important as the process of oxidation. During our daily metabolism, sugar molecules, (such as glucose and fructose) and reactive aldehydes and/or ketones may combine to any free amino groups on proteins, a process called non-enzymatic glycosylation (glycation). This reaction is also sometimes called the Maillard reaction. It...

  • Cross-link Breakers and Inhibitors

    Cross-link Breakers and Inhibitors It is now well established that the process of glycosylation is one of the most important causes of ageing, perhaps equally as important as the process of oxidation (free radical damage). During everyday metabolism, sugar molecules (such as glucose and fructose), and reactive aldehydes and/or ketones may attach to free amino groups on proteins, a process called non-enzymatic glycosylation (glycation). This reaction is also sometimes called th...
  • Acarbose - A Starch Blocking Anti-Diabetic Drug & Potential Weight Loss Agent

    Acarbose - A Starch Blocking Anti-Diabetic Drug & Potential Weight Loss Agent Insulin resistance is the central metabolic defect in a cluster of disorders now referred to as Syndrome X. This cluster of diseases includes Type II diabetes mellitus, obesity, hyperinsulinemia, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and atherosclerosis. This syndrome was first described (in Russian) by Professor Vladimir Dilman in 1955. Today, Dilman's name is rarely mentioned as the first to have appreciat...
