A.G.E.s (advanced glycation end-products) are compounds in the body that have been shown to be a primary cause of ageing, meaning that the older we get, the more A.G.E.s accumulate in our body tissues.
A.G.E.s are made out of two primary ingredients: sugar and protein. Excess sugar molecules will fuse with protein peptides to form A.G.E.s. Excess A.G.E.s will cause healthy cells, tissues, organs and system to slowly decay. The result is premature ageing, which affects our appearance as well as the overall function of the organs and systems in our bodies. A.G.Es age our bodies prematurely from the inside out.
A.G.E.s form naturally in the body when we eat sugary or processed foods. Our hormones have a big role in A.G.E. formation too, as well as our activity levels. Manage AGEs by eating right, exercising, reducing harmful stress and getting plenty of sleep.
Increased A.G.E. awareness is changing lives for the better. A.G.E.s have been studied for years, but until now, all of that research was hidden behind stuffy journals and scientific jargon. Now, A.G.E.s are finally hitting the mainstream – in a big way! Huge publications all over the world can’t stop talking about glycation, premature ageing and A.G.E.s. Exposure of A.G.E.s is at its tipping point, and Morinda is leading the charge.
A.G.E.s and The Toast TestThe Formation of A.G.E.s
When a piece of bread is exposed to high heat, it hardens and turns brown. In other words, it turns to toast. When you look at toast, you might see the beginnings of a delicious breakfast, but what you’re actually looking at is the formation of A.G.E.s through what’s called the Maillard Reaction. Bread contains both sugar and protein. When heat is introduces, the sugar melts and fuses with the protein peptides, and that’s when A.G.E.s are formed

KNOWING YOUR TrūAge IS
THE CRITICAL FIRST STEP TO LIVING
What is TrūAge? It is an estimate of how old your insides are—your bones, joints, organs, cells and systems—based on your body’s A.G.E.levels. It is calculated by comparing your A.G.E. score to other people with the same score. For example, if you have the same A.G.E. score as the average 25-year-old, your TrūAge is 25. Your TrūAge score can help you determine if your A.G.E. levels are average, above average, or below average for your age. Regardless of your score, your goal should be to improve it.
