Methods

"Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are produced during protein glycation and associated with diabetic complications. Peanut skin is rich in procyanidins, which may be used as an inhibitor of glycation. This study evaluated the potential anti-glycation effect of peanut skin extract (PSE) and dissected the underlying mechanism."

Key Findings

Results showed that peanut skin extracts were able to effectively inhibit glycation, which might open additional avenues for its application.
