Also committed to this message is the AGE Foundation, a non-profit organization that was founded in 2012 to increase consumer awareness about AGEs. The AGE Foundation’s website contains information on what AGEs are, how they are measured, and how to control them. There are also AGEs stats, studies and clinical research, and links to articles and blogs about AGEs that have been in the media.

Additionally, the AGE Foundation’s Twitter and Facebook accounts spread AGE awareness to the masses.

“The AGE Foundation’s mission is to establish AGEs as a viable health marker, drive conversation about their link to virtually every serious health concern we face today, and provide solutions for avoiding and managing AGE accumulation in the body. The AGE Foundation accomplishes this mission through ongoing research, clinical studies, and various public awareness campaigns.” - www.AGEFoundation.com
