Trehalose is a sugar found in mushrooms and found to be beneficial in how proteins unfold and breaking down scar tissues such as in amyloid plaques such as in alzheimer’s, autism, and down’s syndrome.
Our trehalose powder is 100% pure.
Trehalose plays a very important role in maintaining cellular integrity under stress. When cells are exposed to stresses such as cold, heat, or lack of oxygen they adapt by synthesizing very large amounts of trehalose sugar. The function of the trehalose is to prevent denaturation of proteins which would degrade under stress. Trehalose also plays an important role in autophagy being beneficial in many neurodegenerative diseases.
