Glyde D® Curbs Age-Related Sugar Damage*

Aug 8, 2016

PHOENIX, AZ (July, 2016) — A brown crust may be appealing on grilled meat but a similar chemical process in the human body, a reaction to excess sugar, underlies the aging process, from wrinkled skin to stiffened arteries.[1]Mineral Biosciences® new Glyde D dietary supplement curbs sugar damage by defending against this harmful reaction, known as glycation.

What is Glycation?

Pronounced “gly-KAY-shun,” the word describes a harmful combination of excess sugars and proteins, which form rogue molecules called Advanced Glycation End-products, or AGEs. Levels of these naturally increase with age[2] and are driven higher by added sugars in foods and beverages. AGEs accumulate in and harm all parts of a body, including skin, arteries, organs, muscles, and eyes. [3] Stiffer muscles and arteries and wrinkled skin are possible signs.[4]

How Glyde D Reduces Harm

Glyde D contains a one-of-a-kind ingredient called Ioniplex, a naturally-sourced plant mineral extract that is patented as an anti-glycation composition.[5] It contains at least 25 major, minor, and trace minerals in an “ionic” form, meaning very small particles that are more easily absorbed throughout the human body than other types of minerals. Mineral Biosciences® uses a chemical-free process to extract these from ancient mineral deposits in the United States. Millions of years ago, these locations were covered in lush vegetation and, over time, became fossilized.

Research Demonstrates Results

Glycation can be detected with the same tests that measure blood sugar, and these have been used in studies of the patented mineral complex. When glycation decreases, levels of blood sugar reach healthier levels.

Scientific research has shown that Ioniplex reduces the formation of harmful AGEs, enhances energy production within cells, and helps support healthy blood sugar levels. A study published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research[6] tested Ioniplex on human cells and in diabetic mice. Researchers concluded: “To our best knowledge, this is the first description ever of a fossil material having anti-glycation activity in pre-clinical models.”

Vitamin D Provides Additional Support

Glyde D combines Ioniplex with vitamin D. Although vitamin D was initially considered essential for healthy bones, by aiding in the absorption of calcium, it is now known to play a much bigger role throughout the human body. For example, vitamin D is needed by muscles to function, by the immune system to ward off bacteria and viruses, by nerves to relay messages, and for control of inflammation. Adequate levels of the vitamin are linked to healthy levels of blood sugar,[7] and research with human cells has found that it can reduce glycation.[8]
