anti-aging/anti-glycation supplements

Answered on August 19, 2014

Is anyone here taking antiglycation supplements like L-Carnosine, benfotiamine, pyridoxamine (still have a stash but FDA has banned its over the counter sale), and lipoic acid (r-lipoic or alpha lipoic)? The carnosine is also supposed to inhibit telomere shortening from what I've read recently if anyone knows more about that as well I'd like to hear. Thanks.

Which are you taking? Here is a link regarding the carnosine though I'm wondering why this study hasn't been replicated. http://www.naturalskinrepair.com/carnosine.html

I think the most effective strategy against glycation is to avoid fructose and PUFAs, and keep blood sugar from spiking by lowering total glucose loads. I don't think we have a supplement that will be as effective as this.

I'm taking some, but the problem is, having a hard time seeing any effect. I know the general idea on how the misc things are supposed to work. However, without some specific testing, you don't really know if it is really doing anything for you.
