Advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) is implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic complications. Inhibiting the formation of AGEs and interfering with AGEs-mediated inflammation are two practicable strategies for developing a dietary adjuvant against diabetic complications. This study evaluated the protective capacities against diabetic complications of several spices based on their inhibition of the formation of AGEs in an in vitro BSA/glucose system and on the AGEs-induced production of…

The aqueous extracts of MC, an edible vegetable, may have therapeutic potential in the management of diabetes mellitus and the expressional inhibition of pro-oxidaive genes and enhancement anti-oidative enzymes could be potent element of vascular complications effect of MC extracts.
Analysis of glycation induced protein cross-linking inhibitory effects of some antidiabetic plants and spices
Methanol extracts of PD, PE, PM, CS and SA have shown promising inhibitory effects on glycation induced protein cross-linking.

Protective Role of Ginger on the Induced Diabetic Retinopathy in Adult Albino Rats
It was found that caspase-3 & VEGF have played a pivotal role in the damaging effect of the DR induced by STZ and that ginger supplementation considerably mitigates these damaging effects.
Strong Protein Glycation Inhibitory Potential of Clove and Coriander
The protein glycation inhibitory potential of three spices was determined using a novel, electrophoresis based method to search for safe antiglycating agents from nature.
Antiamylase, Anticholinesterases, Antiglycation, and Glycation Reversing Potential of Bark and Leaf of Ceylon Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume) In Vitro
Both bark and leaf of Ceylon cinnamon possess antidiabetic properties and thus may be useful in managing diabetes and its complications.
Antioxidant extracts of African medicinal plants induce cell cycle arrest and differentiation in B16F10 melanoma cells.
The results, on the bioactivity and the biochemical characteristics of African plant extracts, may increase the comprehension of indigenous therapeutic practices and represent the first step for the individuation of new inexpensive and natural drugs able to prevent and contrast cancer onset.
Experimentally Induced Diabetic Keratopathy in Albino Rats and the Possible Protective Role of Ginger
It could be concluded that caspase-3 & VEGF have played a pivotal role in the damaging effect of the DK induced by STZ and that ginger supplementation considerably mitigates STZ Induced DK.


Prevention of non-enzymic glycation of proteins by dietary agents: prospects for alleviating diabetic complications
The potential of some dietary components to prevent and/or inhibit protein glycation is indicated and these dietary agents may be able to be exploited for controlling AGE-mediated diabetic pathological conditions in vivo.
Involvement of the toxic AGEs (TAGE)-RAGE system in the pathogenesis of diabetic vascular complications: a novel therapeutic strategy.
The inhibition of TAGE formation, blockade of Tage-RAGE interaction, and the suppression of RAGE expression or its downstream pathways are promising targets for therapeutic interventions against diabetic vascular complications.
Cinnamon bark proanthocyanidins as reactive carbonyl scavengers to prevent the formation of advanced glycation endproducts.
This is the first report that proanthocyanidins can effectively scavenge reactive carbonyl species and thus inhibit the formation of AGEs, which show great potential to be developed as agents to alleviate diabetic complications.

Evaluation of NO-suppressing activity of several Mediterranean culinary spices.
Advanced glycosylation end products induce NF-κB dependent iNOS expression in RAW 264.7 cells
Results provide confirmatory evidence of oxidative stress in diabetic nephropathy and point towards the possible anti‐oxidative mechanism being responsible for the nephroprotective action of curcumin.
Inhibition of protein glycation by extracts of culinary herbs and spices.
In general, spice extracts inhibited glycation more than herb extracts, but inhibition was correlated with total phenolic content, and extracts of powdered ginger and bay leaf were less effective than expected, and black pepper was more effective.
