What is cellular beauty and how do you get it?
Cellular beauty is being touted as a new trend, but at the same time cellular beauty is something that we, here at Rejuvenated we've been talking about and advocating for over 20 years.
What is cellular beauty?
Healthy skin and wellness start from the inside and taking
care to nourish our cells will lead to healthy glowing skin, wellness, and
vitality. While many of us are living longer, for many of us the latter years can be
impacted by degenerative disease. Cellular beauty targets these diseases at the
very root by looking at how we can protect the individual cells in our body to
live longer, healthier, and happier lives. Recent scientific studies have revealed
the information to know which antioxidant ingredients will promote youthful skin
and reverse the signs of ageing. This information has allowed us to create
potent, plant-based formulas that target cellular disruption.
Consumers are actively seeking ways to optimise their health and wellbeing with multi-tasking products to help them to become more youthful, regenerate vitality and radiance and protect for the future.
At Rejuvenated, our concept is simple, to provide you with supplements that contain ingredients that are scientifically proven to support the internal cellular processes thus allowing your cells to perform at their optimum. Our products and wellness philosophy give you the foundations to feed cells and to generate health and beauty from the inside out by nourishing every cell, organ, and tissue.
The signs of ageing are caused by the breakdown of cells as they lose their ability to multiply and become senescent. They are alive but can no longer divide to create new cells. Senescent cells send signals to neighbouring cells triggering them to age more quickly which can lead to inflammation. The good news is that potent plant molecules have been shown to kick start a process called autophagy whereby they activate signalling proteins that go to work to remove senescent cells.
What ingredients help improve cellular beauty?
There are a small number of molecules and supplements that are superpowers when it comes to cellular beauty and giving skin energy.
NMNAlso known as, nicotinamide mononucleotide, is the hero of cellular beauty. This molecule powers up the mitochondria of cells by activating an enzyme called NAD+. NAD diminishes as we age and as this happens the cell is less able to complete essential cellular reactions. The addition of NMN to the diet boosts NAD to a more youthful level.
This is a keto-carotenoid that contains clinically proven antioxidant benefits for the skin, heart and eyes. It helps to reduce cellular inflammation and neutralise free radicals. It promotes higher energy levels, better sleep and an improved quality of life. Astaxanthin helps to hydrate the skin and reduce fine lines, it provides natural sun protection and helps to reduce pigmentation in the skin. It also helps to protect from macular degeneration, thus protecting eyes from age related diseases. Astaxanthin in particular has the ability to protect the outer cell wall and also within the cellular membrane.
Resveratrol is a natural plant molecule found in grapes, blueberries, peanuts, and some herbs. It’s a polyphenol and has incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, some studies indicate that it may have anti-cancer benefits too. It greatly amplifies the antioxidant supply to skin cells to promote cellular repair. Among its many benefits, resveratrol’s molecules can pass the blood brain barrier which helps it to protect from neurodegeneration and strengthen the blood vessels in the brain. Rejuvenated use Trans-resveratrol as it is the most concentrated form of the ingredient.
Pterostilbene originates from the same family as resveratrol and is thought to work in the same way to activate cellular enzymes to protect us from ageing. These enzymes help to regulate the health of our cells.
Mediterranean pine bark
Pine bark has multiple benefits including over forty antioxidants alongside powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It supports the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in the skin to improve moisture content and binds with hydroxyproline, a key amino acid in collagen formation. At Rejuvenated we have been taking pine bark supplements for over 30 years and it was a must for our H3O Night Repair.
Grape seed extract
Grape seed extract is another powerhouse antioxidant containing flavonoids, procyanidins and resveratrol. It has the ability to neutralise harmful free radicals, helps to protect the skin from the sun and reduces pigmentation. It contains anti-bacterial properties and can help to reduce acne break outs.
Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA, they are like the plastic tips at the end of a shoelace and prevent the strands of DNA from unravelling. Telomeres get shorter each time our cells divide until the strands at the end of DNA lose their protection. Astragalus can help in the battle to keep our DNA youthful as it helps to create telomere regeneration.
How to gain cellular beauty
Sleep and relaxation
Getting enough beauty sleep is just what we need. Sleep is essential to allow the body time for cellular repair. When we are in the REM cycle of sleep our body releases skin loving hormones that go to work. Melatonin combats the damage created by environmental factors such as UV light and pollution while the Human Growth Hormone supports the rebuilding of tissues within the body.
Healthy hydrated cells are at the core of cellular beauty. Too little liquid intake reduces concentration of body fluid and can lead to cells shrinking. However, when cells are optimally hydrated, they function more effectively and are less likely to succumb to disease.
Eat a diet rich in antioxidants
Vegetables and fruits contain a multitude of vitamins and minerals to protect from cellular degeneration. Eat foods that are in season and include a varied range of vegetables and low glycemic fruits to maximise your antioxidant intake. Why not try the Rejuvenated salad it’s packed with a huge range of nutrients.
Feed your gut with pre and pro biotics
A healthy skin microbiome will have your skin to glowing by improving your natural moisture factor. And you’ve guessed it, your skin biome is supported from the inside out by creating a healthy digestive system. The microbiome of the gut plays a big part in our total health and wellbeing in fact 70% of the immune system is found within the gut. It’s also responsible for absorbing crucial nutrients from our food. Add pre and probiotics to your diet by including fermented foods such as sauerkraut, pickles, banana, live yogurt, kimchi and kombucha.
Eat health fats
Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to the health of cellular walls helping them to stay strong, moisturised and flexible. Eat oily fish, nuts and seeds to ensure that you eat enough healthy fats.
Reduce the impact of free radicals
Our body creates inflammation when it is confronted by aggressors such as junk food, alcohol, too much sugar and pollution. The body goes to work to clear the inflammation but loses the battle when it is confronted with continual inflammation. This leads to ageing at cellular level; reduce the causes of stress and inflammation where possible.
Support cellular beauty with supplementation
The Rejuvenated range targets ageing at a cellular level. Here are some of our featured cell superheroes.
Regenerate takes a multi-tasking approach to protecting from cellular ageing. It contains 8 powerful plant molecules including NMN, pterostilbene, resveratrol, quercetin, fisetin, astragalus vitamin B3, and zinc designed to replenish cellular energy to youthful levels, support DNA repair and combat senescent cells.
H3O Night Repair
H3O Night Repair provides minerals to promote a more restful sleep combined with ionic electrolytes to provide cellular and powerful antioxidants to repair while you slumber. These amazing antioxidants include astaxanthin, grape seed extract, pine bark, astragalus and vitamins A, B, C, D and E.
H3O Hydration allows fluid transition across cell walls to create deep cellular hydration for energy and to help protect cells from the diseases associated with ageing. It also contains Resveratrol this antioxidant has been the subject of many studies and is high on the list of longevity ingredients.
Collagen Shots is an essential ingredient in overall cellular health. Proteins are key for healthy cellular membranes and for the essential maintenance work in cells. The replenish collagen and elastin levels, so important for radiant skin and the health of the whole body.
