Anti-AGEing. The clue is in the name
Anti-AGEing. The clue is in the name.

When we think of ageing we think about getting more wrinkles or becoming less mobile. In fact aging starts in our youth and terminates, well who knows when? What we do know is that whilst ageing is an inevitable process we can help slow down the process somewhat. Furthermore, for those of us who find it hard to understand the technicalities of what supplement does what for our health and for the anti-ageing process, in particular, there’s an easy acronym for us to understand. That acronym is ‘AGE’.
AGE, the acronym, stands for Advanced Glycation End-Products. This is in fact the name given by scientists to the thick and sticky substances that form at the end of a series of reactions started by the breakdown of glucose, the body’s main energy source, which we get from carbohydrate-based foods. Unfortunately where AGE forms in greater quantities than is healthy in certain parts of the body, such as particular organs and tissues, it can cause premature ageing.
The link between blood glucose levels is key and indicates that there are certain lifestyle changes that can help our cause. We can make some straightforward changes to our diet that will help balance your blood glucose level and help reduce the accumulation of AGE. The following changes can help:
• reducing the consumption of simple sugars like cakes, biscuits and white bread and pasta
• replacing these sugars with more complex sugars such as wholegrain bread and pasta
Whilst diet is an important contributor to reducing the accumulation of AGE so is a fantastic supplement called Lypo-Spheric Age Blocker. This supplement provides a variety of nutrients in one supplement that limits the rate of AGE accumulation. One way in which these nutrients work is by helping you to balance your blood glucose level. Making the change from a lifestyle with regular sugar intake and refined carbohydrate intake to one without sugars and refined carbohydrates is not without its difficulties. It can be done but your body may require a little help to create the blood sugar balance sooner and therefore limit the progression of AGE accumulation. There are many products on the food supplement market that make similar claims but they are often just that, ‘claims’. The difference between the lypo-spheric product and any other intent on reducing AGE accumulation is that the supplement is in effect bundled into tiny (otherwise known as ‘nano-scopic’) lipospheres which means that the supplement is delivered directly into to the blood stream without interaction with digestive juices, foods, or other substances in the digestive system that might otherwise start to break down the product and make it less available for use.
For those who have read my previous articles on lypo-spheric vitamin C you will know that the benefit of lypo-spheric nutrients is that they really can target the areas that need it most in the most potent dose because they are not broken down by any of the body’s secretions or processes before they get to the area of action. This lypo-spheric supplement is no different. So to start the anti-AGEing process you should look to Lypo-Spheric Age Blocker by Abundance and Health your supplement of choice.
