Skin-tini* Beauty Cocktail Ingredients List
Stearic Acid: Studies show that stearic acid may lower harmful cholesterol levels in the blood and thus moderate the harmful cholesterol-raising effect of other saturated fats.
Vitamin A: Vitamin A is recommended by dermatologists to keep skin young and smooth. This supplement has been shown to help with acne and helps keep skin moist. Vitamin A acts as an antioxidant to neutralize harmful elements in our skin, helping to prevent wrinkles, resist infection and keep our skin youthful.
Papaya enzyme: Many experts have claimed rejuvenating properties for papaya, especially for the control of premature aging. It may be that it works simply because poor digestion leaves the body without the correct nutrients. Those who find it almost impossible to digest anything frequently find that papaya used regularly marks the turning point in the climb back to vitality and good health.
Vitamin C: The skin receives many good benefits from Vitamin C. Not only does this vitamin help get rid of the free radicals that can damage your skin but it also helps your body increase the production of collagen. Vitamin C can also help brighten the skin, reducing the discoloration of the skin that can occur from years of sun exposure. Unfortunately, humans are one of the few animals that cannot produce Vitamin C on our own, so we must obtain this vital nutrient through our diet.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E is responsible for collagen production and is another powerful anti-oxidant. Vitamin E helps the skin combat oxidative stress from the environment that leads to damage and aging. Ingesting Vitamin E almost doubles the levels of this important anti-oxidant on the skin’s surface. Vitamin E helps with the moisture content in the skin and is necessary for Vitamin A to be properly metabolized.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D is essential for helping bones absorb calcium, keeping them strong and preventing osteoporosis. Vitamin D also helps maintain muscle strength and balance and lowers the risk of bone fractures in older people. But it seems meant to do more: there are receptors for vitamin D in almost every cell in the body, and evidence is growing that the vitamin helps the immune system function and regulates cell growth. Vitamin D has shown great promise in treating skin conditions like psoriasis.
Green Tea Extract: Considering their well-documented antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, green tea polyphenols are likely to slow down the development of some signs of aging.
Beta-Carotene: Beta-carotene - found in carrots, fruits and green leafy vegetables - is a powerful antioxidant. Researchers have found that it can counter a specific type of reactive oxygen species, singlet oxygen (1O2), induced by the UV radiation from sunlight. Meaning, it can help protect you from the sun’s damaging rays, which in turn can slow the appearance of aging.
Ginseng: Many studies have shown that ginseng is able to reduce levels of stress in both men and women. In many clinical studies of the herb’s effects, those taking regular ginseng supplements were able to withstand higher levels of emotional and physical stress than those who had never taken the herb. In addition to its traditional role as stress fighter, ginseng has shown great promise at reducing fatigue, increasing memory and even fighting off colds, flu and other infections.
Vitamin B-1: The primary role this vitamin plays inside the body is in the conversion process of blood sugars into glucose. Vitamin B1 helps the body break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin): It is required by the body to use oxygen and the metabolism of amino acids, fatty acids, and carbohydrates. Riboflavin is further needed to activate vitamin B6, helps to create niacin and assists the adrenal gland. It may be used for red blood cell formation, antibody production, cell respiration, and growth. It eases watery eye fatigue and may be helpful in the prevention and treatment of cataracts. Vitamin B2 is required for the health of the mucus membranes in the digestive tract and helps with the absorption of iron and vitamin B6. Although it is needed for periods of rapid growth, it is also needed when protein intake is high, and is most beneficial to the skin, hair and nails.
Vitamin B-12: Also known as the energy vitamin, B-12 is a very widely researched vitamin, and used in supplementation to a very large degree. Vitamin B-12 is known to give an energy boost, assist in preventing mental deterioration and helps with speeding up thought processes. Some people are also of the opinion that it helps with clearing up infections and provide protection against allergies and cancer. This vitamin is also used in the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
Niacin: also known as nicotinic acid or vitamin B3, is a water-soluble vitamin that plays an essential role in energy metabolism in the cells and DNA repair. Other functions of niacin include removing toxic chemicals from the body, and assisting in the production of steroid hormones made by the adrenal gland, such as sex hormones and stress-related hormones.
Biotin: Biotin is used in cell growth, the production of fatty acids and in the metabolism of fats and amino acids. Biotin not only assists in various metabolic chemical conversions, but also helps to transfer carbon dioxide. Biotin is also helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. Consequently, it is found in many cosmetic and health products for the hair and skin.
Grapeseed Extract: A rich antioxidant which can reduce the damage done by free radicals, strengthen and repair connective tissue, and promote enzyme activity. It may reduce the signs of aging and loss of skin elasticity. Not only does it neutralize free radicals themselves, but it also conserves and regenerates Vitamins C and E.
Pomegranate Extract: Pomegranate has substances, such as polyphenols, that have antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-tumor activity. Pomegranate may also be helpful in maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and a recent study indicates pomegranate has compounds that play a role in preventing osteoarthritis and prostate health.
CoEnzyme Q10: The levels of CoQ10 in the body almost inevitably decline with age. In fact, CoQ10 is regarded as one of the most accurate biomarkers of aging since its decline correlates so well with the aging process. In most people over thirty, levels of CoQ10 in the skin are below optimum, resulting in lesser ability to produce collagen, elastin and other important skin molecules. CoQ10 may boost skin repair and regeneration and reduce free radical damage.
Aloe: Although Aloe is very useful for skin disorders, it is also used in cases of people suffering from heartburn, ulcers and other digestive disorders. Aloe acts as an anti- inflammatory agent and in some cases is known to reduce the amount of stomach juices that are secreted. Several Japanese studies and clinical trials that have been conducted have shown that Aloe Vera does have an impact on digestive system disorders.
Green Tea: Scientific research in both Asia and the West is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that the anti-oxidant EGCG in Green Tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol. Some properties in Green Tea are also useful in increasing metabolism.
Saw Palmetto: An herb reported to have hormonal/estrogenic effects. It may be useful in treating hormone-related disorders, such as male baldness, acne, under- or over-developed breasts, hormone imbalances, low libido, PMS, low sperm count, and reproductive issues, etc.
Pantothenic Acid: Pantothenic Acid, also known as vitamin B5, is a widely known natural treatment for acne. It is one of eight vitamins that comprise the B complex. Pantothenic acid is essential for life and is involved in a wide range of bodily functions, including making fats, neurotransmitters, hormones, hemoglobin, and other important molecules that are involved in growth, reproduction and normal functioning of the body. Pantothenic acid also helps the body absorb and utilize Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-12 and Vitamin C. Vitamin B5 is a precursor of coenzymes that are part of important chemical reactions in the body necessary for the production of energy from food.
Iron: Needed for the production of hemoglobin and myoglobin (the form of hemoglobin found in muscle tissue) requires this nutrient. It is also needed for the oxygenation of red blood cells, a healthy immune system and for energy production.
Calcium: Calcium is needed for the formation and maintenance of bones, the development of teeth and healthy gums. It is necessary for blood clotting and stabilizes many body functions. It has a natural calming and tranquilizing effect and is necessary for maintaining a regular heartbeat and the transmission of nerve impulses. It helps with lowering cholesterol, muscular growth, the prevention of muscle cramps and normal blood clotting. Furthermore it also helps with protein structuring in DNA and RNA. It provides energy, breaks down fats, maintains proper cell membrane permeability, aids in neuromuscular activity and helps to keep the skin healthy. Calcium also stops lead from being absorbed into bone.
Zinc: It is necessary for a healthy immune system, and is also of use in fighting skin problems such as acne, boils and sore throats. It is further needed for cell division, and is needed by the tissue of the hair, nails and skin to be in top form. Zinc is further used in the growth and maintenance of muscles. It also seems as if zinc helps to control the oil glands, and is also required for the synthesis of protein and collagen - which is great for wound healing and a healthy skin.
Thiamine: Thiamine is one of the B vitamins, a group of water-soluble vitamins that participate in many of the chemical reactions in the body. Thiamine (Vitamin B1) helps the body’s cells convert carbohydrates into energy. It is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system.
Selenium: One of the main activities of this mineral is its anti-aging properties and its ability to help rid the body of free radicals, as well as toxic minerals such as mercury, lead and cadmium. It is helpful in fighting infections since it stimulates increased antibody response to infections, promotes more energy in the body, and while it helps with alleviating menopausal symptoms in women, it assists the male in producing healthy sperm.
Sea Salt: Salt is most effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats and, is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure - in conjunction with water. Salt is vital to the extraction of excess acidity from the cells in the body, particularly the brain cells. Salt is necessary for balancing the sugar levels in the blood, and generating hydroelectric energy in cells of the body. It is vital to the nerve cells' communication and information processing. Salt is essential for absorption of food particles through the intestinal tract and for the prevention of muscle cramps.
Phosphorus: It is very involved with bone and teeth formation as well as most metabolic actions in the body, including kidney functioning, cell growth and the contraction of the heart muscle.
Choline: Choline serves various functions in our bodies – in the structure of cell membranes, protecting our livers from accumulating fat, as the precursor molecule for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Choline is also the precursor to acetylcholine, one of the crucial brain chemicals involved in memory.
