Do you want to be in the spotlight of every event with glowing skin? You can rely on high-quality USANA Nutritionals to replenish your skin with three necessary nutrients: USANA Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), grape seed extract, and vitamin C. Starting with your body’s cells, you can brighten your skin from the inside out.

Coenzyme Q10 : Energy Source for Your Skin

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is essential for cellular energy conversion in the body. During the process of energy conversion, CoQ10 goes through an oxidation-reduction cycle and supports antioxidant function. In addition to protecting cellular lipids and proteins from oxidation, it also helps regenerate and recycle other antioxidants such as vitamin E. The body’s ability to synthesize CoQ10 diminishes with age, making skin cells more prone to the damage of free radicals and less capable of renewal. Skin damaging free radicals mainly come from ultraviolet radiation, pollution, and pollutants from other environmental elements. Free radicals’ damages not only show signs of aging in your skin, but also alter cell membranes and damage genes – even causing cell death. CoQ10 is regarded as a free radical scavenger that penetrates skin cells to protect against damage by free radicals and UV radiation. Research shows that CoQ10 facilitates collagen and elastin to smooth fine lines and prevent wrinkles. Alpha-lipoic acid has a similar antioxidant function as CoQ10, protecting cells against damaging oxidation. It is also more easily absorbed by the gut and can penetrate into cell membranes. Thus, nutritional supplements combining both CoQ10 and alpha-lipoic acid help greatly in promoting healthy skin.

Grape Seed Extract : Optimal Antioxidant Protection

We need oxygen to sustain life, but oxidative reactions damage our body cells. The skin is the body’s largest immune organ and has the most direct exposure to external environmental damages. Therefore, the oxidative damage is especially noticeable. When the skin cells are damaged by free radicals, aging symptoms like wrinkles and freckles will appear. Grape-seed extract can help maintain cell health and prevent the skin from premature aging. Grape-seed extract contains proanthocyanidin, which is a bioflavanoid with the highest antioxidant protection. It neutralizes free radicals and protects cells from oxidative damage, keeping skin healthy. As for the human body, grape-seed extract not only strengthens immunity and improves cardiovascular health, but it also enhances capillary strength and blood flow to the eyes, relieving eye strain as well as preventing eye diseases. However, in order to provide enough protection to the skin cell and body against oxidation damage, daily supplementation is required to compensate for the insufficient amount of grape-seed extract found in daily diet.

Vitamin C : Nature’s Source for Collagen Synthesis

Collagen is a structural protein essential for strengthening muscles, teeth, bones, skin, and blood vessels. It is inseparable from vitamin C because it can only be produced with the presence of vitamin C in the body. Skin collagen exists in the dermis as a structural support, making the skin look firm and tight. As we age, collagen level production throughout our body decreases dramatically, so we need extra vitamin C supplementation to slow down skin aging. Moreover, vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin which can protect skin cell from free-radical damage. It helps inhibit pigmentation to improve skin coloration and maintain healthy skin.

Your Choice for Perfect Skin : USANA Poly C™

The grape seeds are power-packed with potent antioxidants and more and more research is revealing the effective health benefits of grape seed extract in boosting human health – including skin health.

The kinds of antioxidants in grape seed extract are oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). USANA’s research and development scientists have isolated the extract, concentrated it and combined it with antioxidant vitamin C to produce the double layer and unique USANA Proflavanol C100 . The two key ingredients in one tablet work together to boost each other’s health benefits.

Proflavanol C100 has a lot of skin-health benefits. Here are a few…

Anti-ageing effects

You already know how important it is to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. You probably already know that over 80 per cent of the damage of facial skin results from sun damage, overexposure to glare produced by water and snow and/or due to wind damage. One of the ways the sun ages your skin is by triggering free radical production. Sun exposure also reduces the skin’s small reserves of the antioxidant vitamins C. So, getting enough of this important but delicate vitamin can help improve your skin’s ability to fight against UV light. Vitamin C works with vitamin E and with natural plant sunscreens (such as pigments like lutein, lycopene, beta carotene and OPCs in Proflavanol C100  to protect your skin. Eating lots of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of fluid to stop you from dehydrated, too. Never forget to use sun-protective clothing and sunglasses that when exposing under the sun, especially when you are close to the water or snow.(Due to strong light reflection)

Grape

Strong blood vessels

Another way that USANA Proflavanol C100 can help to improve skin texture is by utilizing OPC’s blood vessel strengthening effects. Dr Nicholas Perricone, author of “The Clear Skin Prescription” says that OPC can help to repair skin cell damage. They do this, he states, because they can help to maintain the integrity of elastin and collagen, tissues that help to keep you skin elastic and youthful looking. And because OPCs have been shown to strengthen blood vessels needed for the efficient delivery of nourishing oxygen, water and nutrients to body cells, including skin cells, they nourish your skin from the inside out.

 

Across the ages

In youth

The body produces free radicals all the time – they are a natural part of cell metabolism. But free radicals can damage cells and DNA too. They are triggered by earing too many fats, drinking alcohol and cigarette smoking. And, as teens and young adults are renowned for their erratic, junk food eating ways, Proflavanol C100 could be a great way to boost young adult’s health. In fact, the skin-health boosting effects of grape seed extract may boost its appeal to young people, too.

In maturity

You already know that antioxidants may prevent signs of premature ageing, but do you know how it works? It’s all about reducing free radical damage and the ace antioxidant vitamins (A,C,E) are involved. Because they are effective free radical scavengers, OPCs in USANA Proflavanol C100 can boost skin health plus their elastin-boosting effects may help prevent some aspects of skin ageing. The effects of OPCs are believed to be stronger than those of vitamin C, E and beta carotene.

OPCs may play a part in boosting heart health too. That’s due to damaged blood vessels or blood vessels that are narrowed by plaque and other deposits increase heart disease risk by interrupting blood flow to it and to other vital organs. OPCs may play a role in protecting blood vessels. Australian scientists were writing in the Journal of Bio-medicine and Biotechnology found that taking just 2g of grape seed extract daily for four weeks increased nitric oxide, a gas molecule that improves blood vessel health.
