Advanced Glycation End Products: Slow Down Your Aging Process
There is no stopping the aging process... but what about slowing it down?

Did you know that by consuming excessive amounts of sugar and fat, your body and health age at a faster rate?

Advanced Glycation End products (Notice the A.G.E?) are formed when a protein or fat binds to sugar and renders the protein unavailable to do it's job in your body. These AGE levels skyrocket and reach unhealthy levels over time.

This can lead to heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, poor aging and other health issues.

By changing what you eat or changing the way you prepare your meals (even just one meal a day) can decrease high levels of AGEs in your body.

Dr. Holly discusses what Advanced Glycation End products are, how this process affects your health, foods to help restore your body and ways to help eliminate high levels of AGEs in your body.
