If when ingesting stimulants like caffeine or theobromine you are causing the adrenals to release adrenaline which causes the liver to release sugar into the blood will this released sugar have the glycaton effects in the body that ingesting sugar... (more)

I could be wrong, and I'm sure the biochem gurus will correct me if so, but here goes: Glycation (the non-enzymatic binding of sugars to proteins and other structures, like the membranes of cells that line everything from arteries to organs) is a... (more)

The term AGEs has come up in some interesting posts, but I don't really know what they are. Can anyone define for a non-scientist? .

"Glycation" is a chemical reaction when a sugar binds to a lipid (fat) or a protein. Advanced glycation end products are the results of a glycation reaction. That it, the thing that's formed when a protein or fat binds to the sugar. The problem... (more)

Sean at Underground Wellness is pushing a MLM supplement called Protandim which claims to reduce AGEs. Has anyone tried this stuff? Thoughts?

Honetly, Sean used to be one of the greatest in the business, with the Protandim crap I've lost a lot of respect for him...

A lot of paleo/primal recipes and cooking methods seem to overlook the issue of heat damage to fats and protein, making liberal use of frying or sauteing, in other words cooking things in fat (paleo fats like butter and coconut oil, but still) at... (more)

It seems that AGEs and ALEs produced inside the body are more harmful than those produced during cooking. The data on the negative health effects of exogenous AGEs/ALEs is somewhat unclear. A couple of observations from the literature: The... (more)

Do sugar alcohols cause glycation as sugar does?

Matt_11 0 · January 09, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Shouldn't. Glycation occurs because of the reactive aldehyde (glucose) or ketone (fructose) (carbon-oxygen double bond) present. Sugar alcohols have had this functionality reduced to the alcohol (hence the name). Sorbitol (top) vs glucose... (more)

I commented on Davis' original post, so I'm going to allow myself the indulgence of quoting myself: First, that very paper says that only about 10% of exogenous AGEs actually make it into circulation, so that automatically takes butter... (more)

Does anyone know if using glycation-causing molecules topically can damage the skin? I'm using pure glycerin (a sugar alcohol) regularly, and was wondering if this might be harmful. While I get different opinions when it comes to the glycation... (more)

Interesting question, I don't have an answer but an opposite question. Do supposedly topical antiglycation products like creams with r or alpha lipoic acid in them really have any effect?

Is there anything other than sugar (in its various forms) that causes endogenous glycation?

Yep. Those sought-after ketone bodies produced during ketosis... reactive towards proteins just as other ketones/aldehydes would be.

That seems to be the next step for mainstream nutrition who have amended their stance on lipoproteins like a billion times. I don't think drug companies are going to be able to profit from this. The best pills to take to reduce lipoprotein... (more)
