Struggling to reduce inflammation in your body, get your blood pressure in check, reduce cholesterol or can’t get your blood sugar down? Your diet and the way you prepare your food is 80% of your total health. The way you prepare your food and what you snack on is just as important as it’s quality. When food is cooked with dry high heat, especially proteins and fats, glycotoxins aka advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are created. AGEs are linked to accelerated aging, excessive wrinkles, diabetes, heart and kidney disease. In this episode Dr. Jannine Krause breaks down how your cooking methods and favorite foods could be keeping you from reaching your health goals.
