Candida Diet Is The Cornerstone Of Anti-Aging
Besides being a much healthier person, you will also be glad to know that a low sugar diet, as recommended for Candida, is also the cornerstone of many anti-aging strategies. For instance, Nicholas Perricone is probably the number 1 anti-wrinkling doctor in the world. His analysis goes partly like this: when you eat sugar (or any hi-glycemic carbs), your insulin rises.
A lot of sugar results in a lot of insulin. High insulin creates inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation creates wrinkling of the skin, but also creates unseen damage to internal organs. High insulin also creates insulin resistance, which results in even higher insulin levels, and round and round it goes.
There is also the idea of glycation, wherein high blood sugar levels directly result in some ‘sticky’ sugar molecules attaching themselves to two protein molecules. This so-called cross-linking of the proteins results in the proteins not doing their job correctly.
The worst cases involve Advanced Glycation Endproducts, or AGEs. In the skin, the cross-linked collagen proteins mean you get wrinkles. There are anti-aging theories that in the pancreas, AGEs cause diabetes and in the brain AGEs cause Alzheimer’s disease and so on throughout the body.
So, there is the anti-aging bright side of having Candida: you eat less sugar and white flour and probably avoid other problems, such as raised insulin and inflammation leading to wrinkles. There are also the Free Radical Theory of Aging and the Inflammation Theory of Aging (involving things other than only sugar). So if you add in lots of vegetables and so forth, along with exercise, you get most bases covered.
