Triterpenes are one of the protective ingredients in mushrooms.
Shilajit is a biogenetic stimulant containing triterpenes. When plants are subjected to extreme environmental conditions like altitude, heat or cold then they develop protective compounds. When these protective compounds are extracted and consumed by a human it improves metabolism, resilience and overall well-being.
Triterpenes are also promising agents in the prevention of diabetic complications. They have strong antioxidant activity and inhibit the formation of advanced glycation end products, implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy, embryopathy, neuropathy or impaired wound healing.
