Avoid Sugar to Help Slow Aging

Avoid Sugar to Help Slow Aging

Story at-a-glance -

  • Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are a complex group of compounds formed when sugar reacts with amino acids. Glycation is one of the major molecular mechanisms whereby damage accrues in your body, which leads to disease and aging
  • Restricting dietary AGEs can increase lifespan in animal models, and limiting sugar in your diet is a well-known key to longevity
  • Fructose in particular is extremely pro-inflammatory, promoting AGEs and speeding up the aging process. It also promotes the kind of dangerous growth of fat cells around your vital organs that are the hallmark of diabetes and heart disease. In one study, 16 volunteers on a high-fructose diet produced new fat cells around their heart, liver and other digestive organs in just 10 weeks
  • As a standard recommendation to limit glycation, I strongly advise keeping your TOTAL fructose consumption below 25 grams per day
