In the quest for optimum health, managing the effects of glycation is every bit as important as the management of excess free radicals with antioxidants. Unfortunately there is really only one nutrient that helps the body’s ability to manage glycation, and that is a dipetide called carnosine.
Carnosine helps to protect the proteins in your cells and helps the body to manage the damage from glycating agents. Unfortunately it is not practical to use carnosine in our Multi-Xtra because it is not only very expensive but it also requires an enteric coating in order to be effective.
This would have a significant impact on the cost of Multi-Xtra and negate our objective of providing a superior multi vitamin/mineral supplement at the lowest possible cost.

All versions of Total Balance support these issues.
