Who doesn’t want to stay young and active as long as possible? Although you can’t reverse aging, you can slow the process so you don’t grow old before your time. According to Ronesh Sinha, M.D., an internal medicine physician with the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, smart diet choices—especially as they affect blood sugar levels—will help you maintain energy, vitality and health for years to come.
“We all know that exercise and a healthy diet are key in preventing diseases and age-related complications,” Dr. Sinha says. “But as you grow older, you also need to be aware of a specific chemical marker for aging known appropriately as advanced glycation end products, or AGEs.”
