Getting older—it’s inevitable for all of us. As women age, our bodies go through a variety of changes; our hormones fluctuate, our metabolisms slow down, the natural antioxidant production in our skin declines, and the bioenergy of our skin cells which power collagen creation and the repair process also regress. Surveys have shown that girls as young as 16 years of age start looking at various anti-aging products with the goal of protecting their youth!
While the aging process cannot ultimately be avoided, it can certainly be slowed by implementing proper techniques into your everyday lifestyle. These techniques include healthy eating habits, adequate hydration, exercise, sufficient rest and proper supplementation. With this in mind, we’ve included unique anti-aging ingredients in our Oxylent® Women’s formula such as Marine Collagen and Resveratrol to help slow the effects of the aging process on your skin, joints, muscles and more—all from the inside out.
Marine Collagen is a complex, fibrous protein derived from the scales and/or skin of saltwater fish that has been shown to support the flexibility and strength of skin, hair, nails, ligaments, joints, tendons, muscles and bones. It is classified as a type 1 collagen—the most abundant collagen found in the human body.
The amino acid structures found in the peptides of fish collagen contain high amounts of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. When marine collagen is consumed, these peptides have been shown to support collagen synthesis, joint health and overall skin regeneration.
While there are many different sources of collagen, marine collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently as compared to bovine and porcine collagens. Due to its superior bioavailability, marine collagen has been considered to be one of the best collagen sources for supplementation.
In addition to its Anti-Aging benefits, supplementing with Marine Collagen can also benefit:
- Bone Healing & Growth
- Joint Support
- Injury Restoration
Resveratrol is a polyphenol and potent antioxidant found in red wine, various fruits, particularly grapes, and vegetables that has been shown to slow the aging process by decreasing inflammation. While inflammation is a natural bodily response to ward off potentially harmful invaders such as certain bacteria and illnesses, chronic or prolonged inflammation can have a negative impact on aging and overall health.
Resveratrol is a distinctive antioxidant due to its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier to help protect the nervous system and brain. Recent studies have shown that supplementing with Resveratrol can help protect cells from free radical damage, support the elasticity in blood vessels and help to lower blood pressure.
Due to Resveratrol’s unique abilities, it has also been shown to support overall heart health by protecting the endothelium, the thin inner layer of the arteries, from oxidative free radical damage. Moreover, by helping to maintain the production of nitric oxide within the body—the essential chemical produced by the endothelium that helps to keep the blood vessels effectively dilated—Resveratrol has been shown to support healthy blood flow in and out of the heart—ultimately supporting overall health and well-being.
In addition to its Anti-Aging benefits, supplementing with Resveratrol can also benefit:
- Oxidative Stress Support
- Cellular Support
