Good ‘Sweets’

A diet high in sugar can cause the glycation of collagen- which means it becomes rigid, more brittle and prone to breakage. Sugar attaches to the proteins collagen and elastin, and causes a cross-linking process promoting elastosis and wrinkles. This is called glucose driven intrinsic aging. Consider some dietary substitutions and drastically reduce your sugar intake but not the “sweet rewards”
