Stem cells are beneficial for the natural process of healing and regeneration. Stem cells are found in all living things and have the ability to turn into all different kinds of cells and help the body regenerate.
Naturally, your skin is already made of stem cells. As you age, you start to lose them, and by the time you hit 50, you’ve lost about 98 percent of them. Yikes! When you’re young, the average turnover for your skin is about 25 to 30 days. When we get older, the production slows down, the turnover can take up to 60 days. When it’s exposed to the elements longer, it loses that youthful vibrant look. That’s where products come in.
The stem-cell skin-care products contains the proteins and amino acids that the youthful cells secrete.
This is what your body recognizes and can use to help rejuvenate and repair cells, these are the natural body healers.
The cocktail of proteins and amino acids that are harvested from the actual stem cells themselves signal your own cells to produce more collagen and elastin and ultimately fire up the rejuvenation process. Say hello to the fountain of youth.
It’s important to note that stem-cell science is still in its infancy, and even though not all dermatologists are totally convinced that stem cells by themselves are miracle anti-aging, they do agree that these products are still packed with age-defying benefits.
I believe that these products are worth using primarily for their high concentration of antioxidants, which work to reverse UV-induced skin damage, and also for their potential to improve cell turnover and renewal.
The melanin is the color pigment in your hair follicles. When our bodies stop producing melanin the hair turns gray.
Gray hair is cause by excess hydrogen peroxide in in the hair particles that bleaches the hair.
Catalase is an enzyme found in almost all living organisms. It catalyses hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen and protects organisms from free radicals. As we age catalase declines and is necessary to maintain a balance diet to keep our hair from developing gray strands. Many fruits, vegetables and other food types are rich natural sources of this protein, and can help counteract the deficits that come with age.The highest sources of catalase are: leafy green vegetables, sesame seeds, mushroom, flax seeds and more.
Luckily there are also other dietary sources of glutathione that can help maintain younger looking hair by reducing hydrogen peroxide. The food containing the highest sources are asparagus, beef, fish, poultry, spinach, avocados, asparagus, okra broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, and watercress. Include several of these ingredients in your daily diet such as raw vegetables to get the maximum level of benefits.
Increase intake of vitamin B12 to decrease production of hydrogen peroxide. Great sources of vitamin B12 are clam, beef, liver, salmon, tuna, egg, and yogurt.
Including fruits into your diet might keep hydrogen peroxide at bay. Apples, cherries, berries, lime and bananas.
All of these actions increase glutathione peroxidase and Catalase.
Stay active by exercising to improve overall function of the body.
Avoid smoking, alcohol, exposure to mercury and sun bathing.
