Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Skin Glycation is
What does this mean?
Likely to have high risk of skin glycation. Likely to have high risk of skin glycation.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Skin Glycation.
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Avoid grilling, frying, deep-fat frying or roasting your food as it may produce high level of AGEs.
- Avoid consuming food with high sugar content such as carbonated drinks and sweets as it may increase the glycation stress.
- Consume moderate or minimal alcohol intake as alcohol metabolites can increase glycation stress.
- Cinnamon, cloves and oregano can help to protect against fructose-induced AGE formation.
- Mixture of herbal extracts from chamomile, hawthorn berry and grape leaf has been found to prevent the formation of AGEs.
- Studies show that consumption of probiotic supplementation may decrease blood sugar level, oxidative stress and early glycation.
- Carnosine is known as AGE inhibitor, it can be used as oral supplement or applied via skincare products.
- Maintain reasonable skeletal muscle mass such as performing muscle load training and moderate exercise as blood glucose is mostly consumed in skeletal muscle.
- Eat slowly, chew food well and consume foods with low glycemic index as this eating habit can reduce glycation stress.
