ANTIOXIDANTS JOIN FORCES TO COMBAT SIGNS OF AGING WITH LORENOL
                   
LORENOL Has Natural Anti-Inflammatories and Anti-Aging Compounds 

Inflammatory skin disorders such as rosacea, psoriasis, atopic and seborrheic dermatitis are quite common and range from occasional rashes, skin itching, redness to even more chronic conditions. Naturally occurring antioxidants have anti-inflammatory activities simply because of their ability to:

 

  • Inactivate free radicals/ reactive oxygen species - (ROS)      

  • PREVENT the ROS-mediated stimulation of signaling pathways that can lead to the activation of inflammatory and aging genes such as:

  • MMPs  

  • IL-1

  • COX-2 

  • TNF-alpha

  • IL-8

  • Interferes directly with receptor activation (signaling pathways that stimulate the inflammatory genes)    

  • Prevent free radical-induced changes to proteins and to membrane lipids that destroy  their normal cellular functions

LORENOL PROTECTS AGAINST UV DAMAGE, SKIN AGING, AND COLLAGEN LOSS

Sun Damage, is well known as a major cause of the and causes IL-1 inflammatory mediator skin to age,  LORENOL® has the ability to interrupt one or more steps in the inflammatory process helping to improve inflammatory conditions.  This combination of natural botanicals not only possesses strong anti-inflammatory actives but has also shown excellent anti-aging benefits. This particular combination of compounds has the ability to interrupt the inflammatory mediator IL 1.  LORENOL LABS™ has identified naturally derived botanicals such as Sulforaphane, Zingiber Officials and other naturally derived compounds combined together which we have named LORENOL.

 

ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION ACCELERATES AGING

Time, gravity, heredity, and other environmental exposures all affect how skin ages. But the overwhelming majority of visible signs of aging are caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Because the complex outer layer of our skin, (the epidermis),

is fully exposed to the external environment, it is always under attack through dehydration, abrasion and, particularly, ionizing damage from high-energy ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The accumulated damage from UV radiation, called photo-aging  is one of the unique challenges constantly facing our skin.

 

Although the precise effect of ultraviolet radiation on skin aging is not yet known, we do know that cumulative UV radiation or ultraviolet radiation increases production of free radicals, damaging DNA and the enzymes involved in DNA repair.  UV radiation increases inflammation and damages collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its resilience. It also acts tosuppress immune function in the skin.

NATURALLY OCCURRING COMPOUNDS PROVIDE POWERFUL PROTECTION FOR YOUR SKIN 

Young broccoli from freshly sprouted seeds is particularly rich in a compound called Glucoraphanin, and other phytonutrients which play a vital role in cancer prevention, immune system function, and the maintenance of healthy, youthful skin.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM UV DAMAGE

 

  1. Most visible signs of skin aging are caused by ultraviolet radiation — a process known as photo-aging.

 

   2.  UV radiation not only increases production of free radicals causing damage to DNA and the enzymes involved in DNA repair, but it also causes inflammation         that damages collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its resilience.

 

   3.  Sulforaphane, a compound found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables support your skin’s ability to detoxify and provides powerful protection                   against damage caused by UV radiation.

 

   4. Broccoli sprouts contain glucoraphanin, which is converted  to sulforaphane, as well as a variety of potent antioxidants,  including beta-carotene, a naturally        occurring form of vitamin A that is converted to retinol.

 

   5.  In combination, these phytonutrients improve skin health and can reverse and help prevent signs of aging.

 

BROCCOLI SPROUTS ARE BURSTING WITH PHYTONUTRIENTS 

 

  • Sulforaphane has shown a wide range of health benefits.  It aids your skin in its ability to detoxify, inhibits bacterial growth,  has anti-cancer properties, and provides powerful protection against  UV radiation. Sulforaphane acts  by stimulating the production of enzymes  (including glutathione S-transferase in the skin) that boost its ability to defend against sun damage—the UV rays that cause your skin to wrinkle and age prematurely.

 

  • When applied topically to the skin, concentrated broccoli sprout extract helps to minimize inflammatory processes, diminishing redness,  puffiness, and irritation and improving the appearance, tone, and texture of your skin.  In addition to protecting against and even reversing the appearance of sun-damaged skin, sulforaphane offers protection against the UV-induced oxidative damage that can lead to skin cancer.

 

  • Best Sunscreen: This cruciferous vegetable is more effective than sunscreen in protecting your skin from UV radiation. This is because sunscreen absorbs UV radiation and prevents it from penetrating the skin whereas broccoli extract, when applied topically gets directly absorbed into the cells of the skin by producing a matrix of protective enzymes that defend against damage from UV exposure.  This can be attributed to the presence of a chemical substance  called sulforaphane which reduces skin redness and inflammation caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Thus, it is far better than conventional sunscreens.

 

  • Maintains Skin Health: Broccoli is rich in antioxidants such as vitamins  A, B, C, and E.  Vitamin C stimulates collagen production, thus keeping your skin healthy whereas vitamin A protects your skin cell membranes and prevents ultraviolet radiation damage.

 

  • Broccoli sprouts also contain a variety of antioxidants,  including beta-carotene, a naturally occurring form of vitamin A that can be enzymatically converted to retinol.

 

  • Naturally occurring beta-carotene can be converted to retinol in the body, without associated irritation, redness or other unpleasant side effects. In addition to antioxidant activity, beta-carotene stimulates collagen production, which helps to smooth wrinkles, soften and tighten the skin. Beta-carotene also boosts the elasticity and resilience of the skin, and calms ruddy complexions, and even improves skin tone.

 

  • Synergistic effects of these phytonutrients can help to support and protect the skin, enabling it to perform its most important function—serving  as the first line of defense against environmental toxins, microbial pathogens, and other harmful influences. These phytonutrients also effectively counteract the effects of environmental stress on the dermis. Leaving skin healthy, fresh, and rejuvenated.
