What Are Advanced Glycation End Products?

A quick overview Advanced Glycation End Products, or AGEs are harmful compounds that are formed when proteins or fats combine with sugar in the bloodstream.   They also go by the name glycotoxins.  Exogenous AGEs are found in foods that you put into your body as breakfast, lunch and dinner.  As opposed to endogenous AGEs, exogenous AGEs are not formed in the body, but are ingested.  AGEs also accumulate naturally as you age.

The Human Digestive Tract

The Human Digestive Tract

What the human digestive tract looks like The human digestive tract is a 30-foot-long tube, with lots of folds and bends, of varying surfaces and purposes, that runs from the mouth to the anus.  Centered around the small intestine, extending upward to the stomach, downward to the large intestine, and sideways to the supporting organs, the “gut” as we call this area is the foundation of human health or disease.

I hired Cathy to redesign my office space to enhance the functionality and create a space that I want to work in. Change in any form is never easy, but Cathy listens to your needs and makes recommendations in a gentle and supportive manner. Her focus is to understand how you need your space to function, so that the outcome is both aesthetically pleasing and feels natural based on how you personally process information. Thank you Cathy!

Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start.  She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too.  You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.
