NUTRACEUTICALS

Nutraceuticals means, NUTRITIVE + PHARMACEUTICAL: A food stuff (as a fortified food or dietary supplement) that provides health benefits.
The term nutraceuticals was coined from "nutrition" and "pharmaceutical" by Stephen Defelice MD.
According to Defelice "Nutraceutical are food or part of a food that provides medical or health benefits including the prevention and/or treatment of a disease."

Health Benefits

  • L-GLUTATHIONE REDUCED

    Glutathione is a low molecular weight thiol-tripeptide that plays a prominent role in maintaining intracellular redox balance.

    Glutathione is an antioxidant present in almost every cell in the body, playing a role in the detoxification of drugs and xenobiotics.
    Reduced glutathione (GSH) acts as a hydrogen donor in the detoxification of hydrogen peroxide.

    As a dietary supplement, GSH possesses various systemic effects such as improvement of liver abnormalities, improvement of diabetic complication, protection from viral infection and antitumor activity.

    It is even used to treat autism.

    Its antimelanogenic properties result from a variety of mechanisms including stimulation of pheomelanin synthesis rather than darker eumelanin, its antioxidant effects and interference with intracellular trafficking of melanogenic enzymes.

    Glutathione also possesses certain antiaging properties.

    Glutathione is generally a safe ingredient for use as a dietary supplement.

    In the human body, glutathione exists in two forms, reduced and oxidized (GSSG), which can be readily converted to each other.

    However, it is not clear whether the two forms are physiologically similar, especially when melanogenesis is concerned.

  • HYALURONIC ACID

    Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a carbohydrate, more specifically a mucopolysaccharide, occurring naturally in all living organisms.

    It can be several thousands of sugars (carbohydrates) long.

    When not bound to other molecules, it binds to water giving it a stiff viscous quality similar to "Jelly".

    The polysaccharide hyaluronan (HA) is a linear polyanion, with a poly repeating disaccharide structure [(1→3)-β-dGlcNAc-(1→4)-β-d-GlcA-].

    HA is found primarily in the extracellular matrix and pericellular matrix, but has also been shown to occur intracellularly.

    The biological functions of HA include maintenance of the elastoviscosity of liquid connective tissues such as joint synovial and eye vitreous fluid, control of tissue hydration and water transport, supramolecular assembly of proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix, and numerous receptor-mediated roles in cell detachment, mitosis, migration, tumor development and metastasis, and inflammation.

    Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allows it to be used in skin-care products as an excellent moisturizer.

    Hyaluronic acid is one of the most hydrophilic (water-loving) molecules in nature and is described as nature's moisturizer.

  • SODIUM HYALURONATE

    Sodium hyaluronate is the water-soluble sodium salt form of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in various connective tissues of humans that has a unique capacity for retaining water.

    Skin care products that contain sodium hyaluronate are able to efficiently hydrate the skin while giving you a smoother, younger-looking complexion.

    The functions of sodium hyaluronate are based on the ability of this molecule to absorb and hold water.

    Sodium hyaluronate is able to hold more water than any other natural substance—up to 1,000 times its weight in water sodium hyaluronate is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG), a long polysaccharide (sugar molecule) composed of disaccharides called amino sugars and uronic acid. GAGs are negatively charged and thus tend to attract positively charged sodium and potassium ions.

    In turn, this causes the GAGs to absorb and hold a large amount of water.

    In the human body, sodium hyaluronate functions as a tissue lubricant and can be found wherever moisture is stored or lubrication between layers of tissue is required to eliminate friction.

    Examples are the vitreous body of the eye itself, the joint cartilage, the synovial fluid in the joints, all the mucus membranes of the body, and the extracellular matrix of the skin. In fact, the sodium hyaluronate found within skin account for up to 50% of the body's total store of sodium hyaluronate.

    It shows growth-promoting activity, anti-diabetic effect, anti-oxidative action, and neuro-protective function. PQQ is a ubiquitous molecule that influences a multitude of physiological and biochemical processes and has been established to be beneficial for growth and stress tolerance in both bacteria and higher organisms.

    It is well known that PQQ is distributed ubiquitously in nature and found in numerous dietary sources, including fermented soy beans (natto), tea, green peppers, parsley, kiwi fruit, and human milk.

    PQQ can act as a cofactor, or enzyme booster, in the REDOX process(Reduction Oxidation). Because of its involvement in REDOX, PQQ offers certain anti-oxidative effects.

    It is mostly notable is PQQ’s impact on mitochondria. Mitochondria provide our cells with energy (ATP) and regulate cellular metabolism. Researchers have looked extensively at the impact PPQ has on mitochondria and have found that PQQ can increase the number of mitochondria and even improve their efficiency. This is a big reason why PPQ is so beneficial Having mitochondria that operate at peak performance is so important to living a healthy life, which means there are a number of benefits you can experience while taking PPQ.
