ORIGIN

Natural carcinine-like ingredient for optimal benefits

 

 

In pathological or degenerative conditions (diabetes, oxidative stress, metabolic syndrome and aging), abnormal crosslinks occur between proteins and glucose forming aggregates which may further evolve through a non-enzymatic reaction known as glycation.

This chemical process slowly leads to the irreversible formation of very stable Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). These glycated proteins lose their biological function and can strongly be linked to oxidative stress.

As an anti-glycation peptide, carcinine has an important role in minimizing oxidative stress and metabolic dysfunction caused by excess sugar and AGEs. This peptide can be found in crustacean (Carcinus maenus) and many mammalian tissues.
