What is Reactive Oxygen

How does it cause aging?

Reactive Oxygen is found in all our bodies and our surroundings. 

Reactive Oxygen are also known as Free radicals.

They are extremely unstable atoms and oxidizes everything around them leading to:

  • Damaged Tissue Cells which results in aging effects

  • Damaged Genes which can lead to intractable diseases like cancer

  • Allergic reactions such as hay fever and asthma

  • Inflammation of the body such as rheumatism and arthritis

  • Lipid Peroxide such as arteriosclerosis

  • Tumor and Polyps 

  • Hormone Imbalance such as Menstrual irregularity, insomnia and menopausal disorder  

  • Skin discoloration such as freckles, spots, pigmentation

Hence, Reactive Oxygen is the main cause of all skin problems. We take in Reactive Oxygen daily and naturally into our body.

The Oxygen we breathe in the air change to > Reactive Oxygen / Free Radicals due to stress and bad habits > Reactive Oxygen causes the aging process in our body, similar to rust causing iron products to be brittle. > Spots, Wrinkles & Sagging Skin and ultimately aging.

What we need is to combat Reactive Oxygen.

What combats Reactive Oxygen is Superoxide Dismutaste (SOD).

You will need Superoxide Dismutaste (SOD) to NOT have the following skin issues.

Skin Spots Formation

Melanin is produced by a group of cells called melanocytes. The sun and UV rays stimulate the Reactive Oxygen Species / Active Oxygen which leads to melanin changing color. This causes melanin pigment deposits on the skin and hence the development of skin spots.

Wrinkles

Our outermost layer of our skin is called the Epidermis. Epidermis is made up of collagen and elastin. Collagen is densely packed fibers to support human cells and Elastin binds these collagen together. Reactive Oxygen Species / Active Oxygen breaks the collagen fibers causing a dent and creating wrinkles.

Sagging Skin

Intertwined with the collegen fibers are cells that are moisturizing components of the skin. Reactive Oxygen Species / Active Oxygen damages and dries these cells up. Overtime due to gravity, the cells will drop and skin starts to sag.
