Managing the Not-So-Sweet Side of Sugar
Submitted by Integrative Therapeutics

Increasingly, we are learning that sugar is not always so sweet when it comes to its effects in the human body. But the effects of dietary sugar are not all about weight gain. Sugar, and how it interacts with the proteins in our body, has a great deal to do with how we age and how well our organ systems function. Too much sugar can influence the aging process and cause the accumulation in the body of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs, for short) in our tissues.

AGEs accumulate as a normal part of the aging process. Because the deposition of AGEs in the tissues is irreversible, however, dietary and lifestyle choices are also of particular importance early in the accumulation cycle, to reduce the speed at which glycation reactions occur. Reduction of glycation and the formation of AGEs can help support:
• Blood glucose metabolism.*
• Blood vessel health and integrity.*
• Retinal structure and function.*
• Healthy cellular aging.*


Glycation Manager is an exclusive combination designed to slow the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and protein glycation associated with normal metabolism and aging.* The unique formulation from Integrative Therapeutics™ features clinically-studied levels of benfotiamine, a form of thiamine, chromium, and biotin, which have been shown to support healthy levels of hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and fructosamine,† two important indicators of glycation.* It also contains TheracurminTM, novel preparation of turmeric that enhances bioavailability and dramatically increases curcumin levels in the blood.*
