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.

Do sugar alcohols cause glycation as sugar does?

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)

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)

This is an interesting question to me because of the premise that caffeine ultimately causes increased blood sugar. I'm not sure this is always true based on observation. I have been monitoring my morning blood sugar when waking and after I... (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? .

AGEs bind to a receptor leading to production of inflammatory factors and oxidant species, including free radicals. The latter attacks lipids and proteins such as in LDL particles. These are ingested by macrophages, which migrate into arterial... (more)

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

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)

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)
