Aging has become a worldwide problem. During this process, the incidence of related
diseases such as diabetes and atherosclerosis increases dramatically. Studies within the most recent two
decades suggest a pivotal role of Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) in the aging process. This
review aims to systemically summarize the effects and potential mechanism of Chinese Medicines on
inhibiting AGEs-related aging diseases.
Keywords: Aging, advanced glycation end products, Chinese medicines, vascular diseases, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease.
