11 Foods That Should Be Avoided To Slow Down Aging
10. Counteract Fructose With Lipoic Acid
Did you know that agave syrup, the supposedly healthy alternative to sugar, contains more fructose than corn syrup? The bad thing about fructose is that it down collagen quicker than sucrose (regular sugar), so it can speed up wrinkle formation.
Some people, such as diabetics, have to replace sucrose by fructose in their diet, so what they can do is supplement their diet with brussel sprouts. They contain a lot of lipoic acid, a compound that can prevent the breakdown of collagen induced by fructose.
