Sugar gets converted by the body to toxic sugar which, in turn, triggers Glycation, Inflammation and Oxidative Stress, three key skin-aging factors. But do not fear! Our research scientists discovered a compound, Supplamine®, that intervenes in the production and availability of toxic sugars.

Supplamine prevents Glycation, the process by which sugar molecules bind to proteins and lipids. Glycationis implicated in many age-related diseases. Glycation and Inflammation from toxic sugars are major factors in the aging of skin, as the collagen that maintains moisture, elasticity and healthy skin suffers the destructive effects of Inflammation, Glycation and Oxidative stress.
