People are often unware of the importance of managing their glycation level. Research has demonstrated that glycation plays a key role in healthy aging, in metabolic health and in heart health. In fact, the glycation level is a meaningful personal measure of overall health and biological age.
Now, with the AGE Scanner it is possible for the first time to non-invasively measure the level of glycation and to determine the biological age of your client. This health measurement consists of a fast and completely harmless optical scan of the skin at the lower forearm.
This product was specifically designed for use by health practitioners. It is not suitable for clinical research studies.

The main sources of tissue glycation in healthy individuals are dietary intake of sugars and of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs). Increased tissue glycation occurs under conditions of prolonged high intake or high oxidative stress. Especially long-lived proteins that provide the framework of organs are affected by glycation. By measuring a person’s glycation level with the AGE Scanner it becomes possible to initiate, support and manage a healthier lifestyle. This can for example be reached through a proper diet and the use of specific dietary supplements.
Recent studies have implicated glycation as a strong contributor to future mobility related conditions and frailty. Poor mobility is linked to the level of AGEs in (bone) tissue. The increased level of AGE cross-links is known to especially affect the integrity of the collagen network in bone. Glycation of bone can affect bone strength and lead to skeletal fragility by decreasing bone toughness and increasing stiffness.
Several lifestyle interventions reduce the accumulation of Advanced Glycation Endproducts:
Avoid processed food and cooking food at high temperatures
Supplements can reduce AGE formation and their damage
Creams and capsules have been created to target AGEs that have accumulated in the skin
Tobacco smoking is a source of AGEs
