Lower Level of Glycation
Further testing done on the mice has showed that the animals had lower level of the advanced glycation in their blood. Glycation occurs when sugars are affixed on proteins. Previous studies have connected higher circulating glycation levels on most complications of type 1 diabetes that includes retinopathy, kidney damage, heart diseases, as well as other types of neurological problems.
Previously, it has also been shown that diabetes may be one of the risk factors of Alzheimer’s disease. This makes identification of a safe nutrient like fisetin highly important.
However, there is a catch on this. If someone tries to consume fisetin levels that are equivalent to what the mice were fed, they may have to eat somewhere around 37 strawberries each day. That is a lot of strawberries to eat in order to consume enough fisetin and its probably not practical for most people.
Researchers said that it could be possible to come up with medications that are capable of delivering large doses of the nutrient and allows individuals who are suffering from diabetes to be able to enjoy the various health benefits of Fisetin
