  • How to Maintain or Even Improve Your Vision as You Age

    How to Maintain or Even Improve Your Vision as You Age Vision may be the most precious of our five senses. Yet most of us may take it for granted...until it begins to deteriorate with age. As we get older we likely need greater amounts of light to perceive details clearly, and reading glasses to discern fine print which would otherwise be fuzzy. Night driving becomes difficult due to sensitivity from bright lights and glare, and it's challenging to visually adapt to the darkness. Th...
  • The ultimate AGE inhibitors

    The ultimate AGE inhibitors We’ve known for several decades that the process of glycosylation is one of the most important causes of aging, perhaps equally as important as the process of oxidation. During our daily metabolism, sugar molecules, (such as glucose and fructose) and reactive aldehydes and/or ketones may combine to any free amino groups on proteins, a process called non-enzymatic glycosylation (glycation). This reaction is also sometimes called the Maillard reaction. It...
  • Improving Your Cardiovascular Health And How To Know How Hard Your Arteries Are

    Improving Your Cardiovascular Health And How To Know How Hard Your Arteries Are It’s amazing to think that as long ago as the 17th Century Dr. Thomas Sydenham wrote that; “a man is as old as his artery.”[i] It’s taken the best part of 300 years to prove that he was correct and yet even today arterial health is not as heavily ‘relied upon’ as other cardiovascular markers- for example cholesterol. Perhaps that’s because arterial stiffness measurement has been difficult a...
  • PYRIDOXAMINE: A Universal Weapon against aging

    PYRIDOXAMINE: A Universal Weapon against aging We are constantly being bombarded with messages from the media, the department of public health, and the World Health Organization (WHO) about how overweight and sedentary we have become. The incidence of obesity has reached epidemic proportions. Our growing waistlines coupled with our sedentary lifestyles have put us at risk for developing Type 2 diabetes as well as a host of other chronic degenerative diseases. I raise this issu...
  • Cross-link Breakers and Inhibitors

    Cross-link Breakers and Inhibitors It is now well established that the process of glycosylation is one of the most important causes of ageing, perhaps equally as important as the process of oxidation (free radical damage). During everyday metabolism, sugar molecules (such as glucose and fructose), and reactive aldehydes and/or ketones may attach to free amino groups on proteins, a process called non-enzymatic glycosylation (glycation). This reaction is also sometimes called th...
