LifePharm IMMUNE+++ and DIGESTIVE+++ May Help Improve Skin
Lake Forest—November 10, 2015—Even though the visible signs of aging are unavoidable, scientists now know that one of the primary things to slow down the process is to control glycation. The process of sugar molecules cross-linking collagen fibers is called glycation. When sugar attaches to structural proteins, “advanced glycation end products” or “AGEs” are created. These AGEs are implicated for the complications of diabetes, various oxidative-stress based diseases, cognitive impairment in age-related memory loss, obesity, severe immune impairment and the appearance of premature aging.

Kimberly Lloyd, M.S. explains, “High levels of sugar in the bloodstream causes an irreversible cross-linking with other structural proteins, such as collagen fibers—not only in the skin but also in the blood vessels. This process causes plaque formation, thickening and loss of vascular elasticity. Skin is the largest organ of our bodies and displays the visible signs of harm done by AGEs.”

Ms. Lloyd continues, “The good news is that each of us has some control over how quickly (or slowly) the skin ages. The formation of harmful dietary AGEs can be somewhat prevented by cooking with moist heat and at lower temperatures. Choose steaming and boiling over frying and broiling.

“Adding vitamin C and naturally-sourced antioxidants and bioflavonoids to the diet can help counteract and slow down the negative effects of AGEs. The LifePharm IMMUNE+++ formulation contains bioflavonoids in the form of berries, herbs and botanicals as well as antioxidants in the form of reishi, maitake and turkey tail mushrooms. Research also indicates that probiotics and prebiotics continually digest and utilize all kinds of food compounds. Although studies are limited, the LifePharm DIGESTIVE+++ formulation, with its abundance of prebiotics, probiotics and enzymes may be a logical approach to counteracting harmful substances created by the body.”
