Phytoceramides

Ceramides, skin’s natural lipids, are major components that help hold skin’s surface cells together. Ceramides deficiency causes skin to wrinkle, lose moisture, become vulnerable to various environmental allergens and diseases such as atopic dermatitis and even cancer.

In order to prevent skin aging, pharmacists included ceramides as a key ingredient in expensive skin care creams. Unfortunately, skin care creams’ topical application doesn’t penetrate deeply enough into the skin cells to effectively treat wrinkle formation and, therefore, skin aging. The problem is simply that a topical ceramide application is not the body’s natural way of enriching the skin’s outer layer with ceramide molecules. On the contrary, this process occurs from the inside out. That’s why all the creams and lotions, applied to the outer surface of the skin, no matter how expensive they are, just can’t match needed supply of ceramides that naturally comes from healthy, youthful skin.

Here come plant - derived ceramides, also known as phytoceramides, which can be taken orally. Once absorbed through the bloodstream, phytoceramides are carried to the inner layer skin cells and only after - to the outermost layer. A GREAT BONUS! Phytoceramides rejuvenating molecules reach skin cells all over the body, when creams treat only the cells they were applied to. Oral phytoceramides treat from the inside out to hydrate, smooth, and rejuvenate aging and wrinkled skin.

Although ceramides are present in many of the foods we eat, including rice and wheat, they do not naturally occur in sufficient quantities to optimally rejuvenate aging skin.14 This means that slowing and reversing skin aging requires effective supplementation

Pearl Powder

 

Pearl powder is made from real freshwater or saltwater pearls that are considered to be below jewellery grade. These pearls get sterilised in boiling water and then milled into a fine powder.

 

Pearl Powder boasts a number of skin benefits and overall health benefits. Pearls are a great source of over 30 trace minerals, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, iron, copper, selenium and silica. Pearl powder is often used to lighten and brighten the skin, as it is said to reduce the activation of tyrosinase and add luminosity to the skin. It’s antioxidant properties help protect the skin from free radical stress and reduce acne. Pearl powder calcium content is beneficial for calcium deficient people with issues such as osteoporosis. A typical dose for such matter is 1 gram of pearl powder taken orally, mixed into water or tea, twice a week. Be careful, excessive doses may cause calcium toxicity.

As an oceanic adaptogen, pearls help boost emotional wellness and body homeostasis; balance emotions and reduce stress. Pearl powder is often used in traditional Chinese medicine for this particular purpose.

Pearl powder treats several stomach and intestinal conditions such as indigestion and chronic constipation. It helps minimize pain from sores and ulcers (and reduce the sores and ulcers themselves). The powder was also used in Ayurveda as an aphrodisiac in love potions.

To incorporate the ingredient into the diet, it can be used in smoothies and bakery..

Eggplant

 

When it comes to sun exposure, sunscreens are no longer doing the trick. Meta Labs have formulated an Eggplant Cream that assists in the elimination of non-melanoma skin lesions, including actinic keratosis, sunspots, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

The substance we want to talk about is called Solasodine rhamnosyl glycosides (or BEC). Just a fancy name for extracts from plants of the Solanaceae family: eggplant, tomato, potato, bell peppers, even tobacco.

 

BEC5 Eggplant Extract Kills Only Cancerous Cells

Quite impressive fact about the BEC5 is that is treats only cancerous cells leaving the healthy non-cancerous cells alone.

 

What a great solution to cancer, isn’t it. But, simply including eggplant, tomatoes, peppers or other veggies from this group to your diet will not quite work. Even though these vegetables are still beneficial to your health, the active components are not able to effectively penetrate your cells. In order to get the most out of it we need to attach glycosides (molecules with various simple sugars) to them so they can latch on to receptors found on skin cancer cells.
