Skin is a vast and complex organ where active renewal processes take place

Skin is a vast and complex organ where active renewal processes take place. It protects the body from heat, cold, and infections, maintains a constant body temperature, and eliminates toxins through sweat. Additionally, healthy skin is a crucial aspect of our appearance, influencing our interactions with others.

To ensure the smooth functioning of the skin's numerous functions and biochemical reactions without disruptions, it needs to receive a variety of essential substances from food to support the restoration of its structure.

Collagen Synthesis

The proteins of the dermis, collagen, and elastin provide mechanical strength and elasticity to the skin. They are synthesized from amino acids obtained in the body from protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, dairy products, and legumes. This synthesis is particularly active during periods of growth or when healing skin injuries. Inadequate nutrition, such as in the case of vegans, may slow down collagen synthesis and compromise skin quality. Spirulina, a blue-green algae, is a rich and easily absorbable source of proteins.

Spirulina - a Comprehensive Beauty Booster

Spirulina is exceptionally beneficial for the skin and hair due to several valuable components:

- Proteins for collagen and elastin synthesis
- Chlorophyll and phycocyanin pigments providing antioxidant protection against UV damage
- Iron to supply oxygen to skin fibroblasts and hair follicles
- Copper, a cofactor in collagen synthesis
- Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids for maintaining the lipid barrier and controlling inflammatory processes

BioSpirulina is organic spirulina cultivated in an ideally clean and controlled environment.

Skin Regeneration and Antioxidant Protection

The outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, undergoes constant renewal. Its cells divide, mature, die, and then shed, facilitating skin cleansing and playing a crucial protective role. Vitamin A and its biological precursors, carotenoids, participate in the processes of epidermal renewal and act as potent antioxidants.

Antioxidants protect the body from damage caused by free radicals, aggressive particles formed due to UV radiation, pollution, and other environmental factors, leading to premature aging not only in the skin but also in internal organs.

One of the most valuable antioxidant carotenoids is astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin Plus is a blend of dried Haematococcus pluvialis algae, rich in plant-based astaxanthin, with other powerful natural antioxidants, including bilberry powder containing anthocyanins, and mustard powder, a source of selenium.

Coenzyme Q10, a coenzyme involved in many energy metabolism reactions, also exhibits high antioxidant activity. Replenishing Q10 levels becomes especially important in older age when the body's synthesis of this crucial substance noticeably decreases. The combination of coenzyme Q10 with vitamin C enhances antioxidant protection.

Coenzym Q10 plus Vitamin C contains a high-quality form of Japanese-produced coenzyme Q10 enriched with organic acerola vitamin C.
