Many factors contribute to ageing. Among the more important factors are oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, chronic toxicity and glycation.

It is different from glycosylation, which is the attachment of a sugar to a protein or fat as part of the normal metabolic process. Glycosylation involves enzymes and ATP (the energy-carrying molecule), whereas glycation does not.

As we age past about 25 years of age, both the total collagen, and especially the collagen in our skin and bones begin to be reduced. This is part of the normal process of...
