"In the context of a need for developing and testing new antiglycating agents, we have evaluated several traditional medicines and some common dietary agents and found that some spice principles have the potential to inhibit AGE formation under in vitro conditions and in animal models. Among them ginger was one of the agents that significantly prevented AGE formation in vitro."

Awesome, Tom. Along the same lines:

"... Data of this study suggest that ginger and garlic are insulinotropic rather than hypoglycemic while overall anti-diabetic effects of ginger are better than those of garlic, at least in this experimental condition. Much better anti-diabetic effects of ginger and garlic may be obtained when feeding is with a normal rather than a HF-containing diet...."

Thanks Albedo.

another article ...

Advanced glycation end products inhibitors from Alpinia zerumbet rhizomes

"Our results indicate that labdadiene [a compound of Alpinia Zerumbet from the ginger family] is a potent antiglycation agent which was found to inhibit AGEs formation in three different steps in the pathway."

Thanks Tom.

Once again you have introduced great informationSmile

I guess this is worth considering adding to a antiglycation Carnosine, Benfotiamine, stack.

The plant cited in the study is commonly known as shell ginger and is considered an ornamental, although apparently some use is made of the leaves as a wrap and tea. I wonder if the compound is also found in the ginger root that we commonly eat as a spice. If not, one would need to grow shell ginger in a greenhouse or sunny window and harvest the rhizomes.

I should have looked a little deeper before posting about shell ginger aka Alpinia zerumbet rhizomes. It is also known as galanga root, and can be purchased (though currently out of stock) from Mountain Rose Herbs.
