HOW CAN COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENTS HELP FREE RADICAL DAMAGE? SUMMER EDITION 2016 019 Turn to page 09 to read why Janna Ronert keeps YANA™ Daily Collagen Shots as part of her skincare routine. 01 UNDERSTANDING FREE RADICAL DAMAGE: One of the greatest causes of aging to our skin is oxidative stress caused by free radical damage. Free radical damage not only causes premature aging, it’s also a main contributor to inflammation in the skin. In order to achieve healthy, youthful, radiant skin, it’s imperative to stop free radical damage. 04 BIOTIN'S ROLE IN SKIN HYDRATION: Biotin, often referred to as the beauty vitamin, protects the skin against water loss and damage from the harmful rays of the sun. As the largest organ of the body, continually exposed to the environment, the skin relies on fatty acids to form a protective barrier. Thus, if there’s a deficiency in Biotin, the skin cells will show signs of the deficiency resulting in dry skin and a compromised barrier against the environment. 05 VITAMIN B6 COMBATS PROTEIN DEGREDATION TO PREVENT SKIN AGING: Pyridoxine, a unique form of Vitamin B6, helps in maintaining the condition of the skin by combating the damaging effects of protein degradation involved in normal aging. Pyridoxine also helps in treating a number of skin problems, including eczema, acne, dry skin and psoriasis. 02 THE ROLE OF ANTIOXIDANTS IN PREVENTING FREE RADICAL DAMAGE: Antioxidants are one of the first lines of defense our bodies use to stop free radical damage. There are many types of radicals, but those of most concern in biological systems are derived from oxygen, and known collectively as reactive oxygen species. Because of its cellular structure, oxygen is especially susceptible to radical formation. Although the human body has developed a number of systems to eliminate free radicals such as reactive oxygen species, it’s not 100% efficient. Dietary antioxidants such as those found in YANA™ significantly decrease the adverse effects of reactive oxygen species. 03 OXYGEN RADICAL ABSORBANCE CAPACITY: YANA’S unique blend of hyaluronic acid, green tea leaf extract, organic acai juice, and organic pomegranate extract yields a high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value which represents its ability to provide antioxidants. The ORAC value measures the effectiveness of delivering much needed antioxidants to help your body fight free radical damage. The higher the ORAC value, the greater the number of antioxidants.
