What is Neuropeptides?
Neuropeptides are small protein-like molecules used by neurons to communicate with each other. They are neuronal signaling molecules, Neuropeptides are expressed and released by neurons, and mediate or modulate neuronal communication by acting on cell surface receptors. NEUROPEPTIDES : Copper GHK, PALMITOYL pentapeptide-3, DMAE, Hyaluronic acid.
Why is Copper Important for Healthy Skin?
Studies have proven that copper is essential for collagen and elastin in the skin. And it is also important to tissue building processes.
As we age, our skin thins, and lines and wrinkles develop as our bodies become slower to produce collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs – the cement that bonds tissue components together). Age spots appear and skin becomes dull and lifeless as cell renewal slows and the skin retains less moisture. Scientific studies have demonstrated that copper plays a fundamental role in skin health, by helping restore the skin's ability to repair itself. Copper is a powerful collagen and elastin promoter and plays an antioxidative role in the body. Plus it's important in the production of GAGs. What's more, copper-dependent enzymes increase the benef
Copper-Peptides) also increase skin elasticity and help tighten sagging skin, thicken and tighten facial skin, improve skin texture and appearance, improve skin tone
renew and rebuild your skin, to turn back the clock on skin aging and help you tighten sagging skin and tighten facial skin.
DMAE: DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) is a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that allows nerves to communicate with each other.
DMAE is abundant in fish, especially wild caught Alaskan salmon, sardines and anchovies.
Several years ago researchers discovered that DMAE had properties that made it very useful in antiaging and antiaging skin care. DMAE is very effective at toning the skin and removing fine lines and wrinkles.
Palmitoyl pentapeptide-3, one of the powerful peptide molecules found in the latest generation of high-end anti wrinkle skin care products. This breakthrough ingredient stimulates collagen production in the skin and can even give BOTOX® injections a run for their money in the anti wrinkle department. Palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 becomes even more effective when combined with other peptides.
Similarly to copper peptides, Palmitoyl stimulates the lower layers of the skin to heal themselves, thus accelerating the healing of wounds. Cells called fibroblasts are responsible for knitting together wounds of the skin.
In clinical studies, Palmitoyl pentapeptide- 3 ( Neuropeptide) was shown to:
• increase overall collagen synthesis by up to 120%
• increase collagen IV synthesis by up to 350%
• increase hyaluronic acid synthesis by up to 250%
Deep wrinkles were reduced by half. Smaller wrinkles and fine lines sometimes faded completely away. And what's even better, every participant in the study showed noticeable improvement within two weeks. The result was fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin!!
Hyaluronic acid in skin care products is often used with ingredients such as vitamin C and used with products to help effectively penetrate layers of the skin. The acid is often associated with anti-aging cream products claiming to reverse or stop the aging process. Although we may not be able to completely stop the aging process, hyaluronic acid benefits your skin by helping it look young and soft. The acid is known as the key to the fountain of youth because the substance occurs in humans through tissues and fluids helping to cushion and lubricate specific area.
Products with hyaluronic acid can help treat wrinkled skin. The acid produced by our body occurs in deep layers within the skin and it helps keep skin smooth and plump. Hyaluronic acid works with the production of collagen, another connective tissue, to help keep your skin toned and structured. A good hyaluronic acid can help restore natural glow and youth. The acid also helps in repairing skin damage from environmental and weather elements which again, our bodies ability to do this slows down with aging.
THE ABOVE COMBINATION of NEUROPEPTIDES in our Men creams will give you the best benefits!
Neuropeptides are not organic ingedients but we compine them with our organic creams!!
