Astavita - Skin Defense Complex - 60 Softgels
Skin Defense Complex by Astavita
Skin Defense Complex
Bombarded by billions of free radicals every day, our cells are under attack at even the deepest levels of the skin. The result is the breakdown of the cell structure and the unwanted effects of the appearance of fine wrinkles, loss of elasticity and moisture content of the skin.
Astavita Skin Defense Complex, a proprietary formula first developed and used in Japan as internal nutritional support for skin health, is designed to protect skin from free radicals and includes AstaREAL™ astaxanthin as well as tocotrienol.
AstaREAL™ - a superior astaxanthin harvested from Haematococcus pluvialis, the plant species with the highest concentration of astaxanthin in the world and backed by research indicating its ability to help protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Antioxidants and Free Radicals
Free radicals are the by products of UV radiation, cigarette smoke, air pollution, and even stress. Once free radicals are generated inside the body, they can damage healthy skin cells. Antioxidants are the best DEFENSE against these free radicals as they boost the body's ability to fight them and prevent their damage.
Astaxanthin- a Superior Antioxidant for Beautiful Healthy Skin
Astaxanthin is an all natural carotenoid pigment found in microalgea that has exceptional antioxidant power. The pigment, a rich deep shade of red/orange, is what protects the microalgea when they are exposed to UV radiation and allows them to SURVIVE even in the harshest conditions.
Astaxanthin has been shown to have the unique ability to span through the double layer of a cell membrane. This means it works to protect the skin cells better than other antioxidant, because it can protect the cell both inside and out.
Now what does this all mean?
The cell is like an Oreo cookie, it has two lipid layers (the cookie) separated by a center (the cream). Popular antioxidants such as beta-carotene (fat loving) and vitamin c (water loving) work separately inside the cream and on the outside (cookie) layers. Astaxanthin's unique structure, being fat soluble with polar (water loving) ends, it fastens itself vertically through ALL THREE layers, giving the cell better protection inside and out.
Tocotrienol - a Powerful Lipid Soluble Antioxidant
Tocotrienol is a member of the vitamin E family, but its unique chemical structure makes it up to 60 times stronger than tocopherol.* It is a powerful antioxidant with a superior ability to QUENCH and scavenge free radicals.
A Smart Approach To Healthy Skin
Smart people know that healthy looking skin is the result of the right nutrition and proper care. Astavita Skin Defense Complex is for people who want to help protect the natural beauty of their skin. Prevent the damage while you repair it.
