Most people have NOT heard about glycation or methylation, because to balance these bodily functions, you need unique supplements that are not found in your daily multi-vitamins. I pledge to bring you life enhancing knowledge and the best Supplements from real certified Bio-Technology companies that only specialize in Nutritional Supplements and have the best staff of PhD’s who I have personally interviewed to establish their level of expertise
Glycation can be even more hazardous to your health than free radicals. Glycation is a complex process, but in essence, it causes interference in your body’s ability to obtain the amino acids it needs from the protein-rich foods in your diet.
During digestion, protein-rich foods are broken down into smaller molecules called amino acids. The body then uses the amino acids to form new types of proteins needed to create cells, tendons, ligaments fibers, cartilage, joints and bones. When substances causing glycation, which are mainly sugars and simple carbohydrates, disrupt this process, then the construction of new cells slows way down and cell repair and regeneration is greatly reduced!.The end result is muscle weakness, pain, tiredness and through time chronic disease. Just as antioxidants can act as a counterbalance to free radicals, an amino acid complex called L- Carnosine Plus, can prevent glycation. As an added bonus, Carnosine Plus is an effective anti-aging treatment.
Methylation is complex biochemical process that is roughly the reverse of glycation. Methylation is vital to life and it must be operating at optimal levels, or serious health problems like heart disease, depression, high cholesterol and liver disease may develop. While we want to inhibit glycation, we want to encourage methylation, which normally slows down as we age. Methylation does not always occur at optimal levels, due to malnourishment or disease. The body needs the B-vitamins, Tri-Methyl-Glycine (TMG), folic acid and a unique nutrient known as SAM-e to restore any imbalances in methylation caused by aging and disease. Sam-e is very important to the methylation process. You will see SAM-e supplements sold in drugstores alongside your multi-vitamins. They are often recommended as natural anti-depressants, but they are hardly ever effective for two reasons. B-vitamins must be present in adequate amounts or the body cannot use it. An enteric coating must be included on the tablet or the stomach acid will negatively affect the body’s ability to absorb it.
Enteric Coating
The enteric coating is a critical element in any supplement containing Sam-e, because it will allow the supplement to pass through the stomach acid and into the small intestine where it can be efficiently broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream.
Your daily multi-vitamin probably contains B-vitamins and some antioxidants, but it is unlikely to have an enteric coating because it is expensive to add. Most vitamin manufacturers also leave out the most natural antioxidants like: flavonoids, turmeric, alpha lipoic acid, resveratrol, glutathione, carnosine, SAM-e and TMG.
The importance of ingredients like SAM-e, carnosine, resveratrol and TMG are not well advertised, because they are expensive substances which most vitamin manufacturers don’t use to cut costs. There is a pharmaceutical company about to release a line of resveratrol supplements, but they are calling them prescription drugs. Many people who follow research studies on unique nutritional supplements have been taking resveratrol for years and will continue to do so without paying the prices that pharmaceutical companies charge.
Synthetic or Natural?
The problem with your typical multi-vitamin (other than a lack of the right ingredients and an enteric coating to protect those that are sensitive to stomach acid) is that most manufacturers use synthetic vitamins in place of natural substances. Synthetic vitamins are “similar” to those found in nature, but they are not “identical” and do not provide the same health benefits because they are more difficult for the body to absorb. There is an excellent example in recent studies done on vitamin E. There are many studies showing the health benefits of vitamin E. It is good for cell & tissue repair, for improved circulation, for the prevention of free radical damage, to reduce inflammation and the risk of cancer. But when these same researchers attempted to duplicate the results with a synthetic form of vitamin E, it did not provide the same health benefits.
They found that synthetic vitamin E may actually be bad for your health because it is derived from petrochemicals. The point is that most vitamin companies do not use the correct (natural) form of a nutrient and they do not use the correct delivery system, which is almost always a tablet with an enteric coating. Here is the good news. Through years of research and sheer determination to find a product that would provide everything mentioned above, I have found one nutritional supplement providing everything we have discussed.To get every nutrient we have discussed above as well as the following nutrients listed below:
· Vitamin D
· Minerals, including magnesium, calcium, zinc and potassium
· Trace elements, including molybdenum and iodine
· Carotenoids, (A-vitamins in vegetable forms)
· Enzymes, including lipase and amylase and protease(breaks down fats, sugars and proteins)
· Other amino acids, including, lysine, arginine, taurine and proline
· Herbal extracts including ginkgo biloba and green tea
