Gatherer Activator is rich in herbs which minimize tissue glycation and healthy blood sugar control.
Gatherer Activator Supplement Strategy:
¦Carnosine: Carnosine is a small molecule composed of the amino acids histidine and alanine. Carnosine is found in relatively high concentrations in several body tissues—most notably in skeletal muscle, heart muscle, nerve tissue and brain. Studies indicate that carnosine has antioxidant potential. Carnosine has been called a longevity nutrient since laboratory studies indicate that it can delay glycation damage and tissue senescence and provoke cellular rejuvenation.
¦Quercetin: A powerful natural antioxidant, quercetin has beneficial effects on the proper processing of sugar, removing byproducts and enhancing tissue health.
¦Yerba Mate: This Amazon herb contains theobromine, the mood-lifting xanthine also present in chocolate, helps to naturally enhance one's mood. Yerba mate is in extensive use in South America where it is used as a coffee substitute to enhance sustained energy, appetite control and mental clarity. Yerba Mate is also one of the best herbs at keeping tissue glycation at healthy levels.
¦Salacia: The herb Salacia Oblogna Root has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of blood sugar imbalances. Salacia plays an important role in supporting natural carbohydrate metabolism and in maintaining the homeostasis of lipid metabolism. The inhibition of these substances is thought to decrease blood glucose levels.
