GLYCATION

Your Skin’s Energy

While glucose is our body’s main source of fuel, when metabolized improperly, it can bind to skin’s collagen and elastin fibers, making them stiff and brittle.

A chemical processes known as glycation occurs when the sugars you eat cross-link and form new sugar proteins called Advanced Glycation End-products (A.G.E.’s), resulting in deep wrinkling, stiffness and accelerated aging.

A key genetic marker has been discovered – known as Glycation Interruption.

Tests show that almost half the population is genetically predisposed to reduced genetic protection against Glycation, and thereby lacks the ability to maintain normal glucose levels and energy metabolism.

Your lifestyle factors may also cause an accumulation of A.G.E’s in the skin and blood vessels, so be careful with excessive sugar in your diet, smoking and high alcohol consumption, as these are all known to promote glycation.
