Phytoandrogens: Nature’s Testosterone Boosters

Phytoandrogens are natural plants that have strong androgenic effects on our bodies. Instead of using artificial testosterone boosters and synthetic supplements, why not use these as they are the most natural and powerful means to bump up our testosterone levels significantly without hurting our bodies with nasty side effects.

Let us see how these natural steroids can help us increase our free testosterone levels. Due to a lot of unavoidable factors like pollution, chemicals like DDT, andropause(the male equivalent of menopause, there natural T levels drop significantly) our natural testosterone levels drop but do not loose heart. Nature has given us these plant medicines which are called phytoandrogens since they have very strong androgenic properties which can completely reverse the these effects of lowered testosterone levels over a period of time.

So here we go. Lets look at each of these plants/herbs which can helps us boost our testosterone levels significantly:

Shortleaf pine pollen
1. Pine Pollen: It contains high quantities of androgens including testosterone, DHEA and androsterone and also provides amino acids. According to the studies done, when taken in a tincture form, it gets into the blood vessels quicky and the energy effects can be felt almost instantly while other effects take place gradually. It can also be taken in other forms like tablets, but the tincture is the best way to get the maximum possible test boost from it.

Since ages these have been used as medicinal foods. It is also used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines. It has long history in China and the west is gradually realizing its high potency as an androgen.

2. David’s Lily: An androgenic stimulant. The anther and pollen parts contain the maximum amount of testosterone. It is among the rare group of plants that are known to contain testosterone. However care should be taken for it to be harvested at a time when the pollen is just going to be released.

It has its origins in Chine and India. It also acts as a relaxant. Older civilizations of Europe and America have also consumed it in various forms. They are not to be eaten raw. Either through baking, boiling or cooking they are in an edible form.

It should be consumed in the form of a tincture around one fourth of a table spoon 3 times a day. If you already have high testosterone levels or if you are under 18, this should not be consumed as it might interfere in the natural testosterone production process of your body.

MVC-008S
3. Ginsengs(eleutherococcus, asian, tienchi): It increased potency among men according to researches done in Russia and in another study it also increased DHT. Though it has been seen to increase testosterone it is used more to treat impotency and increase the sexual well being in men. For test level increase, the Asian one does better than the western counterpart.
It also plays an imprtant part in boosting the nitric oxide production.
The Russian versions seem to do well for libido and energy levels.

Though most of the time the root is used, sometimes the other parts of the plants are also used which have lesser effect as compared to the root. Though it has its origins in China and the east it is also found in the west. It is one of the herbs that has become very popular in the west. It has been used in the east for its potent benefits since hundreds and hundreds of years. The western ginseng has some estrogenic effects too while the Asian version has only androgenic effects based on the research done on both of them.

4. Tribulus: It boosts the production of DHEA. According to the researches conducted, it increases testosterone by increasing the serum levels of leuteinizing hormone(LH) and also increases(DHEAS, a bit different than DHEA). It helps in striking the positive balance of androgen and estrogenic properties. It increases the production of sperms and is an overall great supplement for the reproductive health.

Though it has an aggressive and thorny look, dont let it turn you away from its potent benefits. It has been used in Chinese as well as Unani medicines in India since a very long time. The western world is slowly coming on to realize its benefits and is adapting it rapidly. There have been a lot of studies performed for it and time and again it has proved to be a very potent phytoandrogen.

The suggested dosage for fruits is around 3 gms and the packaged product is upto 1500 grams per day in 3 doses.

5. Nettle Root: This helps in increasing the T levels and prevents the testosterone hormone to convert to estrogen. It prevents the binding of DHT to the sex hormone SHBG. Care should be taken that you are using the extract from the root and not the plant.

The good news about this root is that it is excellent for prostrate health. It is also used as a very potent sexual medicine. And this has its origins in the west and has been used since ages and has been proved very successful in many studies.

Dosage is upto twelve hundred mg while when using a tincture upto 130 drops with around half of alcohol and water a day.

Ok, so in this post with all the research conducted till date, I mentioned some of the most potent androgenic natural foods that you can use to boost your T levels to the next level.

The Testosterone Basics

TestosteronTestosterone is a white crystalline steroid hormone that is produced mainly in the testes and is the most vigorous naturally occurring androgen that regulates the development and maintenance of the male reproductive system and male secondary sex characteristics such as a deeper voice, hair growth on the chest and in the pubic region, and an optimum desire for sexual activity.

In addition to occurring naturally in the body, it is also produced synthetically for use in medical treatment.(Chemical formula: C19H28O2).

It is a common misconception that it is strictly a male hormone, the fact is that both males and females have it, but females have much less of it than males do.

Testosterone also contributes to physical differences between male and female brains. The male brain is actually larger, as are many other organs of the male body, because the hormone causes a greater growth rate.

Throughout our lives, the body will continue to produce testosterone, although the natural production rate will decline with aging. On this blog, my goal is to help you keep it at its optimum level even as you age.

Testosterone is classified as an anabolic steroid as it increases the body’s muscle tissues and stimulates the synthesis of protein by the body, this is the reason why many bodybuilders inject it. It also helps in keeping the body fat percentage low.

Therapeutically, testosterone is often used to treat conditions caused when there is deficiency in its natural production. Usually a blood test is performed to check the current levels, and if necessary the doctor prescribes therapeutic hormones.

Some major uses of Testosterone are in the treatment of some cancers which have been shown to respond well to steroids. However these are extreme cases and I recommend boosting it the natural way as will be mentioned through different ways on this website.

Synthetic testosterone is harmful in many cases, especially when it is taken without proper medical supervision; acne, highly oily skin, growth of some cancers, difficulty sleeping, and other complications are associated with abnormally high testosterone levels through artificial means. However, a deficiency can also be harmful, and can impact on libido, energy, and maintenance of normal health.

While our bodies are able to regulate hormone levels naturally in a perfect environment, requiring no medical intervention but our environment and lifestlye along with aging hurt it. Some older men participate in androgen replacement therapy programs when their natural testosterone levels decline in order to maintain their younger state of health and vigor. But thats a debatable topic and that decision has to be taken keeping the risks in mind after thorough examination and consultation with an expert doctor.

High levels of testosterone appear to promote good health in men since they lower the risk of high blood pressure and strokes. Sometimes high testosterone levels also correlate with risky behavior like increased aggressiveness which is not necessarily a bad trait when handled constructively.

Overall its a very important hormone especially for men to lead a active and fulfilling physical, mental and emotionally healthy life.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Farhan Mirajkar and I’m a fitness freak. I have been working on building my muscles since my teens. I was not focussed so I used to have some good muscle gains but used to loose them with my layoffs.
During those years gaining muscles was no big deal. Lift heavy, get enough proteins to recover and grow the muscles, and minimum rest would trigger the muscles into growing big and the reason was that at that age the body produced huge amounts of testosterone naturally.

As soon as I hit my 30’s, I realized that unless you care about your natural testosterone levels with your lifestyle, they are not gonna be at their optimum to high levels. I’ll tell you the reason why?

Nature has given mankind a particular lifestyle adhering to which our testosterone levels remain at their peak levels. But that includes a lot things which either we are not able to do or things which are not possible in todays age like:

1. Sleeping around 8 hours each night.

2. Sleeping in a calm manner where is get deep sleep and REM(deep stage of sleep) is not disturbed.

3. Be stress free. Stress is a part of life but too much of it with the current lifestyle most of us lead is damaging.

4. Having processed food and beverages. Are you 100% organic?

5. Sedentary lifestyle not lifting heavy stuff and moving around much where it makes u sweat.

I can go on and on.

So, What do we do and what options do we have?

Lets see why do we want high testosterone levels in the first place?

1. If you want big lean muscles and strong bones, you need that.

2. You need high test levels to keep the body fat percentage low. Nobody likes a belly and who doesn’t like being all ripped n muscular.

3. It is the primary male sex hormone that regulates your sex drive, so without it optimum sexual health right down to your old age is not possible.

4. It keeps old men and women(yes even women) strong in their older years according to the latest research .

5. It helps you with your cardiovascular health.

6. Better mood: with high test levels you have a healthy sexual life which in turn leads to your mood enhancing hormones to be released like dopamine.

7. Some men who have low test levels also experience sleep problems.

8. Low testosterone is also linked to depression and Alzheimer’s Disease.

9. Test levels are also responsible for your cognitive ability and for that drive to take risks, compete, win, excel and succeed.

10. It affects your energy levels and improves your emotional quotient.

So its very apparent that to live a life full of vitality and liveliness the T hormone optimum/high levels are very important.

So how do we boost free testosterone?

There are a lot of ways by which we can manipulate its production naturally and this is what this website is all about.

What would you benefit as a reader?

You get all the facts from the latest research done on the factors that lead to the boost in its production naturally. Hardly anyone likes to read big research paper, analyze them and derive conclusions from them in manner that you can just start using them. I do that and bring it to you in a manner in which you can just inculcate it into your daily lifestyle and see the test levels grow and save you a lot of time, energy and money. This is all free after all.

A lot of tips, inside information on the T hormone would be brought to you in a manner you can use it to reap the maximum benefits and grow that T-Hormone.

Also something about me. That’s the current picture of me in this post. I’m 33 and I did not have those muscles a couple of years ago. I have never injected a single drop of testosterone, growth hormone or any other steroid.

I began to study about natural T production since I wanted them high in my system. My goal for them being high was that I wanted big muscles without injecting any steroids. So that was my only alternative.

The good part about not injecting and keeping the T-Levels high through you lifestyle is that now even when I have a break between regular workouts, injury or diet being off track for various reasons for days I still maintain my natural T Levels and muscles

A lot of you might not want big muscles but might want to keep the T-Levels still high for other health and vitality reasons. Its all good doesn’t matter for what reason you want it high. This website will help you with all the info you need to keep it high. Its a valuable hormone so do take care of it.

The focus of the website would be to keep it high in a natural manner but there are instances when supplements, gels etc. are required. So those topics would be discussed as well.

Remember, every drop of it counts. So keep a tab on it and keep a track of all the deep info which gonna follow here.

Any thing you feel like asking or discussing, feel free to comment.

All the best with your new soaring T Levels.
Have a nice day!

Choosing Antiaging Skin Care Treatment

Your skin is your most precious commodity when it comes to aging. The more your skin has aged, the more your confidence can lag. Fortunately, you can protect your skin and your self-image from the ravages of time and environment by taking advantage of some of the many antiaging skin care treatments available today.

Antiaging Skin Care Treatment Options

When it comes to protecting your skin, you have almost endless options of how to proceed. Before you take yourself to a dermatologist or even a surgeon to examine your skin and to decide how to proceed with your skin care plan, be sure that you’re doing everything you should be doing to protect and nurture your skin from the inside out.

Avoid harming your skin. By now we all know that there are certain things you can do to really bring harm to your skin. If you’re smoking or doing any sort of drug, you’re going to be continuously harming your skin. The same is true for self-tanning. Don’t smoke, drink excessively or tan. If you’re outside frequently, be sure to be wearing sun screen on your exposed skin to keep it healthy and protected.

Improve your lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle consists of a diet rich in natural foods and plenty of exercise. Get your diet and your exercise routine correct before considering any outside assistance with your skin condition. You may be surprised at just how much can be done from the inside out when it comes to skin care.

Use antiaging skin care items as part of your daily skin care treatments. Wash your face in the mornings and evenings with special cleansers designed to help stop the progression of aging. Then use a special moisturizer to help boost collagen production in order to smooth over fine lines and wrinkles. The end result is dramatically improved skin without ever stepping foot inside a doctor’s office.

Of course, once you’re doing everything you can at home, you have the option to go even a few steps further to help improve your skin condition and overall appearance with help from the dermatologist, plastic surgeon and skin care specialists.

Choosing Antiaging Skin Care Treatments

There are any number of skin care treatments to choose from when it comes to improving the overall condition and appearance of your skin. Most are highly targeted to a particular region, and with the advanced techniques we have today, the results aren’t always obvious. Your friends may recognize that something is different or that you look healthier and brighter, but they may not be able to pinpoint exactly what work you had done, and that’s absolutely the point.

Laser Skin Resurfacing and Tightening – In laser resurfacing, a laser is used to deliberately damage your skin. Once the damaged skin is removed, new, healthy skin grows in underneath and then emerges as your fresh, clean, healthy skin. In laser tightening, lasers break up red splotches and broken capillaries while also promoting collagen growth to fill and tighten skin.

Chemical Peels – Acids of varying strength are applied over the skin to remove the dead or dry skin cells on the surface and allow younger, healthier skin to emerge from underneath as new skin grows in. The peels remove skin discoloration and fine lines, while deeper peels can do a dramatic job removing wrinkles and deep blemishes. A chemical peel can be very uncomfortable and it does require a longer period of recovery.

Injections – Botox and filler injections help to relax muscles and make the facial skin, especially the brow line smoother and more youthful. Injections can have long term implications as they have to be repeated every four months or so for maximum effectiveness.

Cindy Crawford Skin Care: Meaningful Beauty

A beautiful woman, Cindy Crawford was one of the most famous supermodels in the world and today at 43 she still looks as beautiful as she did in her twenties. While we can certainly chalk up some of her magazine and internet polish to special lighting and make up, we’ve all seen enough pictures to know that skincare plays a huge part in how well celebrities age. And if one of our favorite celebrities is aging gracefully thanks to her own skin care products, who are we to cast stones?

Cindy Crawford Meaningful Beauty Skin Care Products

With the help of a prominent skin care doctor, Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh, Cindy Crawford has brought the women of the world an anti aging, breakthrough skin care line of products. This complete system is designed to smooth appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while evening out the skin tone and texture on your face. It also revitalizes the skin to make it appear brighter and healthier while also protecting skin from environmental factors and free radicals with a healthy dose of anti-oxidants.

Cindy Crawford’s Skin Care Items

There are five steps to the Meaningful Beauty skin care line. All of the ingredients in each step are designed to work together to create the youthful, fresh skin that we all deserve.

Cleansing – A gentle cleanser is the first step in Cindy Crawford skin care. Clean away the makeup and impurities on your skin while leaving behind the essential oils in your skin. The cleanser contains mild, non-irritating ingredients so that we call see just how smooth and glowing your skin can become. Most impressively, this cleansing is only the first step, yet we can already see changes and improvements to the skin’s texture.

Protect – After washing your face with the gentle cleanser you’ll feel great, but it will be hard to keep that fresh, clean look as something you enjoy regularly if you’re not adding a layer of protection to your skin to keep it healthy and fresh every day.

The protect layer of Cindy Crawford skin care is an antioxidant day crème. The crème has an SPF of 20 for both UVA and UVB rays and it helps to clarify, brighten and even skin tone as well. After you wash you face in the morning, apply a layer of the antioxidant crème and your skin will not only be protected from the ravages of the sun and free radicals, but it will become smoother and more radiant as well.

Restore – The night is the best time to make a profound difference in the appearance of your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles can disappear almost overnight, and you can give your skin what it needs while you sleep with the anti-aging night cream developed by Cindy Crawford in her line of skin care.

The night cream included in the Meaningful Beauty skin care line is lightweight and helps to boost the production of collagen while also targeting wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. When you’re using a night cream on a regular basis, you can enjoy waking up to skin that looks and feels great. The Cindy Crawford skin care night cream is designed to target intense moisture deep into the skin to restore nutrients and improve skin condition overall.

Also part of the nighttime process in Cindy Crawford skin care lines is the eye crème. The lifting eye crème reduces puffiness, dark circles and crow’s feet during the night. Simply apply the crème before bedtime, and in the morning you can actually see a substantial improvement in the condition of your skin overall, especially around the eyes where the skin is the most sensitive of all.

The sensitive skin around the eyes is especially sensitive not only to sun damage, but to free radical damage as well. It’s important to remember that the skin around your eyes is the most delicate skin on your face, an area known for highly sensitive skin. The combination of botanicals in the lifting eye cream makes it perfect for soothing and moisturizing this tired skin. Applying a few dabs around your eyes and rubbing it in gently will bring about significant results in the morning.

Revitalize – While the basics of a daily skin care regime will make a dramatic impact on your skin care condition, starting around forty, you’ll want to give your skin even more support, so that you continue to make a radical difference in the appearance of your skin as well as its overall health. The Revitalize elements of Cindy Crawford’s skin care line targets skin outside of its normal day-to-day activities.

The first extra step the skin care regime is a firming neck and chest crème. It’s not just the face that has to deal with the ravages of time, and if you’re working hard to protect your face from the signs of aging, you had better be working hard to see that your neck doesn’t give anything away either. The ultra-silky formula developed as part of the Meaningful Beauty line firms, moisturizers and conditions the hard-working skin on her neck and chest. The crème leaves your skin soft and glowing, an excellent complement to the facial moisturizers and cleansers as well.

Another special ingredient in the meaningful beauty sales kit is the glowing serum. A special serum designed originally for models, this compound helps to brighten and lighten skin. An excellent moisturizer for being on the go or just a quick pick-me-up, you’ll see improved skin condition and a brighter complexion as well as a healthier appearance thanks to the infusion of anti-oxidants found in the skin serum as well.

Also part of the revitalize step of Cindy Crawford skin care line is the wrinkle smoothing capsules. These capsules are designed to increase hydration while also promoting collagen production to smooth out the appearance of skin. The capsules help to reduce all fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck while also boosting the hydration of skin which helps the overall appearance and feel of your face and boosting collagen production. Boosting collagen helps to create more collagen for a smooth, healthy finish to your skin.

Purify – The final step in the Cindy Crawford skin care line, the purifying masque lifts away dead skin cells and removes any skin dulling impurities. The end result is a bright, healthy, glowing face. Reported to have been used by Cindy Crawford on her wedding day, this ‘facial in a bottle’ uses marine extracts and antioxidants to improve the overall condition of skin and purify the skin by deep cleaning and reviving the tired skin cells.

Using Cindy Crawford Skin Care

Collagen production and antioxidants are two of the main elements in the Meaningful Beauty skincare line. Collagen is the skin’s natural filler, and as you age, the collagen in your skin decreases. Cindy Crawford skin care line helps to boost collagen production again. As the collage decreases naturally over time, the skin begins to sag and wrinkle. By boosting production, you fill those wrinkles and create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

At the same time, the large number of antioxidants contained in the Meaningful Beauty line of products helps to beat back the free radicals and damaging environmental factors that affect your skin on a daily basis. These free radicals break down collagen and create dull, dry skin. Beating them with antioxidants prevents the breakdown of additional collagen and helps to rejuvenate and refresh your skin tone overall leaving you with brighter, healthier skin.

Created with the help of doctors who understand and specialize in skin care and aging, Cindy Crawford skin care is an excellent way to delay and even reverse the signs of aging. Endorsed and used by Cindy, herself, the skincare line helps to improve skin’s feel and texture.

The five-step process of Meaningful Beauty is sold as a single system, and you can’t buy the individual pieces. Fortunately, the system is designed to work together beautiful to perfect your skin, and with a price of only $XX, it’s a bargain for the amount of science and effectiveness this line of products contains.

Choosing Acne Skin Care

Nobody likes to deal with acne, but it affects almost all of us at some point. In our teens, acne affects ninety percent of us, and then as we age, you can expect to see it again, at least in some small amount, at least once. Some of us are still dealing with acne through our adult years, and when you’re afflicted you can expect the acne to last for months, possibly even years while you skin goes through particular hormone cycles. You can beat acne though by choosing acne skin care products that help to balance the oils and skin cells that are trapped deep in your pores causing any number of breakouts and frustrations.

Acne Treatment Skin Care

Most acne is mild to moderate and can be treated with an acne skin care treatment product. There is some acne so severe, you’ll absolutely want to visit a doctor and learn what the best options are for that level of acne. If you’re experiencing severe acne breakouts, check with your dermatologist about your best options. You’ll most likely respond best to a prescription acne skin care regime. If you’re like most of us though, and suffering from the sort of acne that’s just embarrassing rather than worrisome, you’re in luck – you can find a solution in your local drug store on in an online skin care provider.

The acne products you need are straightforward and are often sold in a set to be sure you have everything you need to get the job done. The first thing you’ll need is a cleanser. Acne is caused by the natural oils of your skin mixing with dead skin cells that should have sloughed off your skin naturally. When this combination is formed deep in the pores, you wind up with break outs and blemishes. The skin care combinations include a cleaner to help remove the oily mess from deep in the pores. Remove the cells and oils helps to purify the skin as the first step in your acne treatment skin care plan.

Refining and Toning with Acne Skin Care

The most important step in your acne skin care is cleaning the skin. Removing the gunky build up and bacteria that forms because of it eliminates the red areas of your skin and effectively beats most of the build-up. Of course, you want to be sure it’s all gone, so you use a toner to help refine and rejuvenate skin even more. An alcohol-free toner helps by removing any remaining oily residue. Simply wipe the toner over your skin and when you pull it away, you’ll see even more dead skin cells and residue. Once that step is complete, you’ll be ready to apply your moisturizer.

Moisturizing and Protecting Skin

The most important step in acne skin care treatment is to then protect the skin from further damage. Your skin needs the right balance of moisture to keep it in check. If you fail to moisturize your skin properly it can develop a surplus of oils. This extra oil is supposed to help keep your skin moisturized correctly and balanced, but in truth it starts the process of making your skin oily which can only hurt your skin more.

Rather than letting your skin overbalance itself by producing excess oils, limit the production of oils by introducing your skin to the right balance of moisturizer. The moisturizer that comes with acne skin care treatment kits is usually oil free, and might even be a gel-based formula to introduce moisture without sending extra oils back into the skin. Once your skin is properly moisturized it is not only going to be smooth and supple, but it will also be protected from the ravages of the sun and wind, which can attack dry skin and cause premature aging.

The Latest and Greatest Ways to Beat Aging

From Botox to blueberries, there are endless ways to fight off aging, but of the slew of products and ideas floating around out there, only some have truly stood the test of time – and many of the best haven’t been around very long at all. If you’re looking to turn back the clock or at the very least slow down the ticking of time, why not get started now? Many of these new ideas in anti-aging are easy to use and require only a quick trip to the grocery store.

Omega 3 and Antioxidants

As it turns out – surprise! – the foods we eat affect our health. They also affect our physical appearance when it comes to aging. Two of the big buzz words today are the Omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. If you’re tuned out already, don’t be – these are simple to find. Eat more fish and more fruit. Specially, eat more of the so-called, “superfoods.”

Omega 3, or fatty fish oils, occurs naturally in most types of fish, but they show up more frequently in fish from a natural area. For example, salmon will have a great deal more Omega 3 than trout raised in a stocked lake. Most people take a supplement of Omega 3 if they are concerned about the amount of oil they are getting.

The Omega 3 works in a few ways to help with anti aging. It battles against senility, helps your heart and beats off depression as well.  If you don’t have enough Omega 3 in your diet, you can suffer from memory lapses, sluggish thought processes and even sagging skin. Skin that has enough Omega 3 is firm and resilient. Skin that is deficient in the mineral is…not.

Antioxidants fight free radicals in your body. The free radicals, or mutated cells in your body, are what cause any number of diseases and lower your immune system over all. When you’re not taking in enough antioxidants, you’re boosting your chances of getting ill, but at the same time, you’re also going to see the effects in your skin tone, the condition of your skin and your overall energy levels as well.

To boost the number of antioxidants in your body, you simply need to increase the amount you ingest. This means eating more of particular kinds of food. These foods have been termed “superfoods” because they contain so many antioxidants and actually help prevent the anti-aging process from the inside out. Among the most popular superfoods you’ll find:

             Acai Berries

             Blueberries

             Broccoli

             Dark Chocolate

             Oranges

             Salmon

             Soy

             Spinach

             Tomatoes

             Walnuts

Retinol in Facial Creams

If you’re lucky enough to have a dermatologist who agrees that you need some anti-aging or acne care, you might wind up with a prescription for retinoids. This special form of Vitamin A is considered the top product when it comes to anti-aging, but you have to have a prescription to get the strongest doses.

If you’d like the benefits of retinoids, but don’t have a doctor willing to prescribe it, you can find smaller doses of the same ingredient in many anti-aging skin cream lines available over the counter in drug stores and beauty specialty shops. These “cosmeceuticals” use retinol, a less intense dose of the Vitamin A form, to help smooth skin.

There are other proteins available through these creams that actually relax muscles in the face. When the muscles relax, the wrinkles and fine lines on the face relax as well. These new proteins are found in the same sort of anti-aging creams as the retinol.

Wrinkle Creams with B3

While some lotions and cleansers protect the skin from future wrinkles or help to smooth out the appearance of any fine lines, a few products are actually filling wrinkles and improving the texture of your skin overall. Wrinkles are caused by the lack of collagen in the skin. Collagen is the type of fat that is just under the skin making your face smooth and soft. When the collagen depletes, the fibroblast cells in your skin are slowing down their natural production.

By stimulating these cells, they are able to produce almost the same amount of collagen as they always have. This means that your skin will appear to be naturally younger for far longer. Vitamin B3 is responsible for kicking those fibroblasts into action, ensuring that they are working at peak levels and producing new collagen. The more collagen produced, the smoother your skin can be.

In many of the same anti aging products you’ll find Hexamidine. Originally designed to hold moisture in diaper liners, the Hexamidine has also been shown to hold moisture in the skin as well. Since moisture contributes to that smooth, supple skin you need to look young, adding Hexamidine to your anti-aging products ensures that the moisture stays put in your skin and improves the appearance and the feel of your skin.

Sunscreen in Anti-Aging Products

Even with all of the advances in new chemicals and supplement discoveries, the best prevention for anti-aging remains sun blocks or sunscreen. UVA and UVB rays cause slightly more than 70 percent of the damage to your skin. When these rays have a chance to work on your skin you can expect your face to show signs of aging like discolored patches, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and sallow, or yellowish, skin overall.

You used to be required to apply a separate sunscreen if you were going to prevent sun damage to your face and next. But now you can normally just apply your regular facial moisturizer. The moisturizer will likely contain sunscreen that has been specially formulated to work for hours in order to block those rays throughout your day. Be sure to look on any anti-aging products you buy for the presence of a sunscreen or sun block. The higher the SPF of that sunscreen, the more protection you’re getting.
