AGEs and Leaky Gut
A variety of factors conspire to lead to leakiness of the gut and this plays a fundamental role in inflammation. We know that, for example, things like stress and environmental toxins can lead to leakiness of the gut. However, we now understand that AGEs (Advanced Glycation End Products), which are proteins bound to sugar when blood sugar is chronically elevated, also play a role in increasing gut permeability. In this video we explore this further.
