7. Sugar Negatively Accelerates the Aging Process
This may be shocking to you, but believe it or not, there are proven relationships between sugar consumption and the aging of body cells. Excessive sugar in the bloodstream clings on proteins and form harmful molecules known as advanced glycation end products. These unwanted molecules invade the nearby proteins, which keep your skin firm and elastic. They make the skin dry and fragile, thereby leading to wrinkles and saggy skin. They also deactivate the body’s natural antioxidant enzymes, which in return, leaves the body open to sun damage and ultimately ages your skin.
