Natural ingredients always held a special place in skincare. Since ancient times, people used various natural plant and tree extracts, leaves, flowers and barks due to their cosmetic and medicinal effects in different skin care products and as a medicine. The willow bark is one such natural ingredient that is known to hold ‘miracle healing powers’ and has been used for more than thousands of years. White willow was used by early Egyptians to for treating pain and inflammation . Native American healers used willow bark extract due to its analgesic properties . Read the rest of this entry »
Glutathione (or GSH) is known as the body’s “master anti-oxidant” produced largely by the liver. It is a small protein molecule composed of 3 GSH precursors or building blocks: cysteine, glutamate, and glycine. Our bodies depend on GSH for different critical functions such as the following:
Detoxification: GSH detoxifies a large number of pollutants in the body. The secret of its detoxifying power is the sulfur chemical groups it contains. Sulfur is a sticky, smelly molecule which acts like fly paper and toxic chemicals such as carcinogens, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides and radiation bind to it, forming a soluble compound with the toxin that can then be naturally expelled out of the body in the form of urine or bile.
Immune system: Normal levels of GSH in the body regulate healthy growth and activity of immune cells by functioning as an antioxidant within them.
Increased Energy: Several factors such as biochemical reactions within the cells can affect our energy levels. GSH enables the powerhouse of the cell called mitochondria to remain fully charged, thereby enhancing muscle strength and endurance. Research has shown that depleting the levels of GSH in the mitochondria results in cell death.
Repair: Our body constantly suffers from external and internal free radicals. They attack the nearest stable molecule and steals it’s subatomic particle called electron. A molecule that loses its electron becomes a free radical itself and attacks nearby stable molecules. This starts a chain reaction resulting to cell death or mutation. Sometimes, the mutated cells act out of control and lead to a condition known as cancer. GSH may help to preventcancer and other diseases by replacing the missing electron in the damaged molecules.
Glutathione and Skin Rejuvenation
Supplementing with top quality glutathione pills, tablets, injections or creams can help to improve skin health, giving people a radiant glow and rejuvenated appearance. It can minimise age spots, wrinkles, blemishes, and other skin impurities.
Many people use topical treatments to reduce skin pigmentation and make it less noticeable, while this works to a degree, it is certainly not the most effective and long lasting treatment. Many creams that promise skin bleaching benefits may contain harmful chemicals and toxins which can speed up the aging process. That being said, there are several glutathione treatments on the market which are of high quality such as Peel to Reveal.
Peel to Reveal is a revolutionary fusion peel designed to deliver high quality skin rejuvenation experience. This treatment is a combination of natural potent anti-oxidants and effective peeling agents such as TCA, Lactic and Salicylic acid. It provides quick and powerful skin rejuvenation with minimal to no downtime. You can immediately resume your normal activities as the procedure only takes 5 to 10 minutes to finish. Peel to Reveal is indicated for signs of ageing, skin dullness, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, sun damage, acne prone skin and enlarged pores.
Undergoing glutathione treatments (topically & orally) does not only benefit your skin. It works both from the outside and inside of your body, leaving you a radiant and younger complexion while boosting the immune function.
