Glyde D® Defends Against Death by Sugar*

Sep 12, 2016

PHOENIX, AZ (August, 2016) — An overload of added sugar can increase risk of death from heart disease by nearly 40 percent, according to research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[1] Yet, most Americans eat well over twice as much added sugar as the American Heart Association recommends: an average of 22 teaspoons daily instead of the maximum recommended 6 teaspoons for women and 9 for men. Mineral Biosciences® new Glyde D® dietary supplement defends against damage from excess sugar by reducing a 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. These damage every part of the human body.[2] AGEs contribute to wrinkles, damage eyes and organs, [3] stiffen arteries, and weaken muscles. [4] Levels of glycation naturally increase with age[5] and are driven higher by added sugars in foods and beverages.

Top Triggers of Glycation

Beverages are the top source of added sugars, contributing 47 percent of the total, according to an analysis of American diets published in JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association.[6] This is how they break down:

  • Soft drinks: 25%
  • Fruit drinks with added sugar: 11%
  • Sweetened coffee and tea: 7%
  • Sport and energy drinks: 3%
  • Alcoholic beverages: 1%

Snacks and sweets are another major source, contributing an additional 31 percent of added sugars. The rest come from grains, such as sweetened cereals, dairy products with added sugar, condiments, and a variety of other foods. Grilling and other high-heat methods of cooking also generate AGEs. Although reducing sugary foods and drinks is an important step in improving health, it’s virtually impossible to avoid all added sugar.

How Glyde D Reduces Sugar Damage

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.[7] It contains 25 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 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[8] 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 D3. Adequate levels of the vitamin are linked to healthy levels of blood sugar,[9] and research with human cells has found that vitamin D can reduce glycation [10]. In addition, the vitamin is essential for healthy bones, by aiding in the absorption of calcium, for the immune system to ward off bacteria and viruses, for nerves to relay messages, for control of inflammation, and for overall good health.
