Skin Aging






Mr. Beer - Makes a great gift!








Skin aging …..Free radicals were isolated around 30 years ago and scientists have since been studying them and the destructive effects of unstable molecules. These unstable molecules steal electrons from healthy molecules and it disrupts cell function in the process. This cellular damage can accelerate aging throughout the body and particularly in the skin. It will rob the skin of its elasticity and strength, which will lead to wrinkles, sagging, dryness, discoloration and other changes.

To prevent further damage and restore normal cellular function our body needs antioxidant nutrients and enzymes. The only known function of antioxidants is to neutralize free radicals, which converts them to harmless substances such as oxygen and water. Foods can supply antioxidant nutrients, but the body can make its own antioxidant enzymes such as catalase, glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase. Enzyme production is stepped up when free radical levels rise. An example is in athletes who have a higher level then the general population. This is due to the surge in free radical production after strenuous workouts.

Non-athletes can generate more free radicals from a high-stress lifestyle. In addition to this environmental factors such as industrial wastes, air pollutants, and pesticide and herbicide residues will also contribute to the burden of free radicals. Our bodies will try to keep up with the demand for antioxidant enzymes but, because of poor nutrition, environmental toxins, illness or simply exhaustion, free radicals will continue their assault. It seems we just can’t escape free radicals.

To minimize free radicals we can eat healthy organic food and take digestive enzymes. Antioxidant enzymes work synergistically with vitamins and minerals and with other enzymes. Companion enzymes and nutrients are called cofactors. Obviously it’s important to thoroughly digest our foods so that vitamins and minerals can be released.

Another way to minimize free radicals is to neutralize the toxins that trigger free radical formation. These toxins come from pesticides, nicotine, alcohol, food additives, medications and environmental chemicals. In addition poor digestion will add to the toxin load by allowing undigested food to infiltrate the body’s systems. Our body will manufacturer enzymes, which will destroy toxins, and most of these detoxifying enzymes inhabit the liver, although some exist elsewhere. If the level of a toxin rises so will the level of required enzymes.

Our bodies have a limited ability to deal with some toxins and may not be able to make enough enzymes for the increased load. If the task of detoxifying becomes too much the liver will fail. The skin suffers even before enzyme production falters.

The liver detoxifies by filtering toxins from the blood. The colon is secondary in the detoxifying process. Poor colon function will affect the skin. I use Dr. Eskeland’s Colon Tone, which is a “gentle oxygen-based cleanser” to keep my colon clean. Probiotics will take care of toxins from bacteria over-growth in the colon.
