Many natural processes that happen within your body can speed up normal cellular aging, which can make you feel and look older than you are. Glycation is one such process. It occurs when excess amounts of dietary sugar, such as glucose or fructose, bind with the proteins in your body, causing oxidative stress.
Protein glycation and cross-linking – when proteins stick together – not only promote faster cellular aging but can also can impact the health of your eyes, brain, heart, blood vessels, muscles, immune system and much more.
Fortunately, L-carnosine – an effective free-radical scavenger your body naturally produces – can help provide support for your overall health.* And because L-carnosine is largely found in meat, vegetarians and others may have low levels of this important compound.
