With only two capsules a day, you make an effective contribution to health preservation and the protection against free radicals.
What are free radicals and oxidative stress?
Free radicals are small molecules, which are produced during a large number of metabolic processes in the body. An increased number of free radicals arise during the process of endogenous defence. This happens in case of contamination with heavy metals, stress, competitive sport, consumption of alcohol or nicotine, through environmental pollutants or through chemicals and medicines. This is called the so-called “oxidative stress”.
Radiation-dependent oxidative stress also emerges through sun exposure and UV-A and UV-B-light. Therefore dermatologists recommend the usage of creams with a high sun protection factor in order to protect the skin.
Those free radicals destroy healthy cells of all kinds. They attack the skin structure and the collagen fibers and are thereby partly responsible for wrinkling, inelasticity of the skin and the aging process in general.
What is homocysteine?
Homocysteine is a waste product of the metabolism. It occurs naturally in our body, but has negative effects in higher than normal concentrations. When homocysteine is not broken down sufficiently by the body, the level in the bloodstream rises. Proper circulation and overall nervous system health suffer negative effects from high homocysteine levels and therefore the body has to continuously break down homocysteine to avoid these elevated levels. To break down homocysteine, the body needs the three vitamins vitamin B6, folic acid and vitamin B12.
With a lack of any of the three vitamins, the breakdown of homocysteine will not function properly. According to the National Consumption Study Part 2 (an extensive survey of the nutritional behavior of the German population), a large proportion of the population shows a lack of sufficient folic acid intake which can be up to 90 % high, depending on age group. Supplementation of food with the three B-vitamins thus achieves a normal biological regulation of homocysteine levels in the body and therefore guarantees the natural detoxification capability of the body.
What are the ingredients and how do they function in the body?
amitamin® Skin Detox Radical contains a special blend of highly effective antioxidant vitamins and trace elements made out of precious plant extracts, hyaluronic acid and amino acids. Vitamin C is one of the most effective water-soluble antioxidants and helps to protect your cells from free radicals. It is also responsible for the body’s own production of collagen. Collagen fibers determine the strength and the elasticity of the skin.
Vitamin E is the most important fat-soluble antioxidant and therefore acts as a free radical scavenger, especially in places where fatty acids are being metabolized. amitamin® Skin Detox Radical is unique, because these radical scavengers are combined with a unique blend of five special plant extracts:
Pine bark extract
Grape seed extract
Green Tea Extract and
These contain highly-dosed important secondary plant extracts, particularly procyanidins, polyphenols and additional flavanols. They were tested in many clinical studies on their antioxidant potential, especially in combination with vitamin C and E. Various research papers about these natural extracts have been published over the last few years. They investigated their contribution to skin beauty, strength and elasticity after only two to three months of consumption. Biotin, Niacin and Riboflavin, which are all B Vitamins contribute to the maintenance of healthy skin. Zinc, selenium and copper contribute to cytoprotection, which is essential for allowing normal pigmentation of the skin. This in turn enhances protection from harmful UV radiation.
Hyaluronic acid is an important component of healthy skin. It is essential for healthy skin, because it tightens it and helps to support the clamping force of the collagen structure. amitamin® Skin Detox Radical contains an unusually high amount of 100 mg hyaluronic acid per daily dose.
L-carnitine is an important factor in fatty acid metabolism and thus the energy supply of cells. It is also thought that L-carnitine has antioxidant properties. We only use Carnipure® of the highest purity in our products. It is produced by a patented fermentation process, which we believe allows for the highest quality production of L-carnitine.
L-arginine is the only raw ingredient for nitrogen oxide (NO). NO is the key molecule, which controls the rate of blood circulation throughout the body.
L-methionine is an important sulfur donor and involved in the synthesis of keratin and collagen fibers. It is therefore important for the permanent metabolic renewal process of skin, hair and nails. During the last few years, these amino acids have been clinically researched with respect to their support and functioning of healthy skin.
Why does amitamin® Skin Detox Radical contain Vitamin D?
Vitamin D plays an essential and important role for the well-being of bones (calcium metabolism) and the immune system. With common foods containing low levels of Vitamin D, it is widely believed that it is somewhat impossible to have a sufficient Vitamin D intake through standard food sources. The body is able to produce vitamin D through the skin with adequate UV radiation. The UV radiation of the sun is sufficient for vitamin D production between April and September when the face, arms and legs are exposed to sunlight on average for around 30 minutes during noon. Therefore, in winter, it is extremely difficult for the skin to create sufficient Vitamin D due to the cooler central European climate.
In order to provide maximum protection from oxidative stress and wrinkles caused by UV radiation, dermatologists recommend the use of creams with a high UV Sun Protection Factor (SPF). Although a reasonable recommendation, the disadvantage is that the body’s production of Vitamin D will be very much restrained. A cream with just SPF 10 already reduces the body’s potential to produce Vitamin D by 99 %. Ultimately, extensive UV protection almost always inevitably leads to a low level of Vitamin D. For those who wish to protect their skin from the outside, then it is advised to nurture your nutrition with Vitamin D. With this in mind, amitamin® Skin Detox Radical is the ideal alternative supplement to premium skin creams.
