AGING: SCIENCE ADVANCES
Aging is at the crossroads of many factors including especially genetics, hormonal decline, toxics, oxidation, risky behaviour...
At the heart of these processes, glycation is the mechanism that leads to faster aging and complications of aging.
Glycation is a chemical reaction resulting from sugars attaching to proteins. Glycation occurs throughout the body and generates AGEs (Advanced Glycation Endproducts) one of the major causes of aging.
AGEs are rapidly toxic to cells whose physiological functions are then altered, in particular for slow-renewing proteins. Glycation progresses in a linear way over a lifetime and can lead to premature aging and complications of aging.
The accumulation of AGEs over time is directly associated with numerous signs of aging such as metabolic syndrome, skin aging and decline of cognitive functions.
Glycation is naturally non reversible.
The organism has no self defence system to fight against glycation.
The consequences of glycation can be controlled by adopting a healthy lifestyle (avoiding products browned through cooking, sugary foods, preapred food, following a daily exercise routine, avoiding sun exposure, tobacco, alcohol...)
The use of antiglycant ingredients helps to prevent the glycation reaction. Except to use them in large quantities over long periods, their effectiveness is poor on slow renewal proteins as those of the brain, arteries and skin.
Discovered in the early 2000s, the deglycating molecules are a major advance in the ability to control the signs of aging. By breaking the proteins cross links glycated by aging, they give back them their original features.
AGE BREAKER, formulated with a Rosmarinus officinalis molecular fraction titrated in Rosmarinic acid is the first anti aging program using deglycating molecule available on the market. To be continued...
