Trehalose is a natural sugar found in many organisms, including bacteria and plants. Research has shown that it may help protect cell integrity against various environmental stresses like heat, cold, dehydration, and oxidation. It may also help promote healthy cognitive and nerve function and provide anti-aging support to nerve tissues against environmental toxins.
Dr. Peter D'Adamo, author of Eat Right 4 Your Type, combined trehalose with synergistic factors to produce Trehalose Complex, perhaps the most important anti-aging nutraceutical yet developed. Trehalose Complex contains ingredients to insure maximum utilization and bioavailability. Trehalose has been accepted as a novel food ingredient in the EU and under the GRAS system in the U.S.
Trehalose works by encouraging the healthy function of molecules known as chaperones. Molecular chaperones work to insure that the proteins inside our cells 'fold' together to ensure proper function of becoming an enzyme, or a hormone, etc.
(Unfolded proteins may trigger a cell-wide stress reaction resulting in a stress response that accelerates the cells aging process.)
Trehalose chaperones move in an attempt to "re-fold" the protein properly.
Trehalose Complex is produced in the USA and is GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) quality assured and certified product as outlined by the Natural Products Association and is suitable for all blood types. It is 100% vegetarian and does not contain sugar, salt, gluten, wheat, yeast, corn, soy, eggs, dairy or preservatives.
