Glucose Toxicity – Part 3
The previous 2 blogs have illustrated that glucose is a poison due to protein glycation, a reaction of glucose with proteins that causes insulin resistance and the formation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs), the cause of complications. Recently a nutritional supplement, Lysulin, has been introduced which targets and stops the glycation of AGEs, along with also lowering the blood glucose levels. Lysulin contains optimal levels of lysine, zinc and vitamin C to achieve better glucose management. All three of these ingredients have been shown to lower blood glucose, prevent the progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes and have a positive effect on the lipid profile and blood pressure. Importantly, lysine has also been shown to halt the production of AGEs as illustrated here:
Not only did the lysine stop AGE production, but it also lowered the production of microalbumin which is an indicator of kidney damage.
Lysulin acts as a shield to protect proteins from being glycates as illustrated below:
With a ketogenic diet, some fasting, moderate exercise and Lysulin supplement, Type 2 diabetes can be halted and possibly reversed.
