Excess glucose also courses through your body, bumping randomly into other molecules and damaging them. This process is called glycation. Once a molecule is glycated, it is damaged forever. For example, when glucose bumps into collagen molecules - protein which keeps skin structure intact – it glycates the collagen molecules, which results in skin wrinkles.
By learning how to flatten our glucose curves by still eating the foods we enjoy, we can better manage these symptoms, and live a better quality life.
