Staying beautiful and young-Start from natural ingredients

2015-05-21

Staying beautiful and young, is the eternal pursuit of human beings, the earliest anti-oxidation records can be traced back to ancient Egypt, ancient Egyptian people use olive oil and other natural ingredients to delay aging and prolong life. At the same time, ancient China and India also have their own unique way of health, they through a unique way of eating and living habits to extend life expectancy. Such as India's Ayurveda, the Chinese Taoist "Heaven and Man", "Daofa natural", are the ancients for us to keep the health treasures.

 

Green tea

As early as the "Shen Nong's Materia Medica", that is, "tea bitter, drink it Yi Si, less lying" records, after thousands of years of development, tea is already a long history of traditional Chinese culture. Green tea is one of the main Chinese tea, is to take tea leaves or buds, without fermentation, by fixing, shaping, drying and other technology and the production of drinks. Because without fermentation, green tea retains the natural leaves of fresh leaves, contains tea polyphenols, catechins, chlorophyll, caffeine, amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients are more.

 

Tea polyphenols have a strong antioxidant and physiological activity, is the body free radical scavenger. Studies have shown that the efficacy of 1 mg of tea polyphenols to remove excess free radicals harmful to human body is equivalent to 9 micrograms of superoxide dismutase, much higher than other similar substances. Tea polyphenols have blocked the role of lipid peroxidation, removal of active enzymes. Japanese scientists have found that tea polyphenols anti-aging effect than vitamin E 18 times.


Ginkgo Leaf

Ginkgo tree, also known as ginkgo tree, known as the Earth's "longevity tree", "living fossil". Because 25 million years ago Jurassic dinosaurs in charge of the earth when the ginkgo has existed, and now dinosaurs have long been extinct, ginkgo tree is still standing.

 

Ginkgo biloba contains natural active flavonoids and bitter lactones and other health benefits of a variety of ingredients, with dissolved cholesterol, the role of expansion of blood vessels. Its disease prevention, treatment, fitness value in the "Compendium of Materia Medica" has long been documented. Ginkgo biloba is listed as royal tribute in ancient times. Ginkgo biloba in the flavonoid glycosides, amino acid synthesis of collagen ingredients on the body beauty, inhibition of melanin growth, to maintain skin luster and elasticity plays a small role.

 

The test by the national health department to prove: drinking ginkgo tea can significantly reduce serum cholesterol, triglycerides and low density lipoprotein, reduce the role of storage of fat in the body, is the ideal treatment for the prevention of dementia. Is the world's recognized governance, anti-cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease the best drug ingredients.

 

It should be noted that ginkgo is toxic, eat more poisoning, causing muscle twitching, pupil enlargement. Pregnant women and children need to be taken with caution.


Tomato (Tomato)

Tomato carotene and vitamin A, C, have freckles, beauty, anti-aging, skin care and other effects, inhibit fungi, infectious skin diseases. Nick acid can maintain the normal secretion of gastric juice, promote the formation of red blood cells, is conducive to maintaining the elasticity of the blood vessel wall and protect the skin. Tomatoes can also balance the skin's PH value, freckle whitening. Tomatoes are nutritious and low in calories, and many models rely on tomatoes to keep their bodies.

 

Tomatoes also have an important antioxidant - lycopene. Human activity produces reactive oxygen species, which leads to a shortening of life. For example, often do sports athletes, usually do not exercise the life of ordinary people to short six to seven years, one of the most important reason is that too much reactive oxygen on the human body. Most people think that vitamin E is very effective in the elimination of reactive oxygen species, studies have shown that lycopene to eliminate reactive oxygen is 100 times the vitamin E, carotene is about 50 times the vitamin E.

 

It should be noted that lycopene is a fat-soluble ingredients, so try not to eat tomatoes. After the tomatoes are fried by oil, lycopene can be dissolved in oil, so more easily absorbed by the body.


Grape and grape seed extract

When it comes to grapes, it is inevitable reminiscent of "grape wine glasses cup, want to drink pipa immediately reminders" like the verse, which shows the ancients have planted grapes, and grape wine craft. The grapes are rich in vitamins, minerals and flavonoids. Flavonoids are a powerful antioxidant that can be anti-aging and can remove free radicals in the body. The grapes also contain an anti-cancer trace element, resveratrol, that prevents healthy cell cancer and prevents cancer cells from spreading.

 

Grapes in the most antioxidant effect is undoubtedly the grape seed extract, grape seed contains a unique proanthocyanidins, the composition has a strong anti-acidification and anti-oxidation function, beauty effect is much higher than vitamin C and vitamin E. Grape seed into the human body, it is easy to be absorbed, can be free radicals in front of the cells to remove it, so as to achieve compact skin, anti-aging effect. It should be noted that the grape contains high sugar, diabetes and constipation Shen Shen.


Nuts

Nuts are the essence of plants, are generally nutritious, with protein, fat, minerals, vitamins higher, the growth and development of the human body, enhance physical fitness, prevention of disease has an excellent effect. Studies have shown that some nut foods such as sunflower seeds have a strong ability to scavenge free radicals, its role with strawberries, spinach scavenging free radicals compared to the ability.

 

PiliNut, which contains 17 kinds of amino acids, including eight essential amino acids, are rich in manganese, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and other minerals and vitamins. And carotene. Periplanal mono-unsaturated fatty acids are easily absorbed by the body to absorb, help to improve memory, regulate blood lipids, delay the body aging and beauty beauty.

 

Pine nuts are "longevity fruit" of the title, which is the main fat component of oleic acid and linolenic acid, with lower blood pressure, to prevent atherosclerosis, to prevent the increase in cholesterol caused by the role of cardiovascular disease.


Cauliflower (Broccoli)

Cauliflower, also known as cauliflower, cauliflower or cauliflower, is a cruciferous vegetable, a variant of cabbage. Cauliflower nutrient is rich in vegetables, it contains protein, fat, carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamin A, B, C, E, P, U and calcium, phosphorus, iron and other minerals. And cauliflower texture delicate, sweet and delicious, after eating easily absorbed by the body digestion.

 

Scientists in the United States and other countries have found that their main ingredients have anti-cancer effects. Cauliflower with cauliflower "Suofufen" can stimulate the manufacture of cells on the body of the beneficial enzyme-type enzyme. This has a very strong anti-cancer activity of the enzyme, can make cells against foreign carcinogens erosion of the membrane, to prevent a variety of cancer play a positive role. Animal experiments show that it can improve the activity of aromatics hydroxylase in the liver of the mice by 54 times, which can increase the activity of small intestinal mucosa by 30 times, so that the somatic cells (especially hepatocytes) in the microsomal multifunctional oxidase system , The ability to break down into the body of carcinogens and other harmful compounds, so that the human body in a long period of a healthy cycle.


Blueberry

Blueberry means blue fruit, one for the wild, although the particles are small, but the content of anthocyanins is high; the second is artificial cultivation of blueberries, anthocyanin content is relatively low.

 

Americans who had recently traveled to North America were suffering from "sepsis" due to the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables for a long time, and the local Indians had given them food after eating what was later called blueberries.

 

Blueberry fruit VMA (anthocyanin pigment) on the eyes also have a good health effects, can reduce eye fatigue and improve night vision. For example, when World War II, the British Royal Air Force in the implementation of the task before, will be taken with a certain food, allegedly it can enhance the pilot's eye function, enhance the night's light, better to complete the task, this is blueberries.

 

Blueberry fruit is rich in nutrients, it not only has a good nutritional health effects, but also has to prevent brain aging, cardiac, anti-cancer softening blood vessels, enhance human immune function. Especially to delay the aging of nerves, enhance memory, maintain healthy skin, relieve skin relaxation has a good effect.


Melatonin

Melatonin is mainly an amines hormone produced by mammals and human pineal glands. In vivo enzymatic and non-enzymatic reactions may produce free radicals, free radicals and aging are closely linked. The formation and elimination of free radicals in the normal body in a dynamic balance, once the balance is broken, free radicals will cause biological macromolecules such as lipid, protein, nucleic acid damage, leading to cell structure damage and body aging. Melatonin protects against cell damage by scavenging free radicals, antioxidant and inhibiting lipid peroxidation, preventing DNA damage and reducing the amount of peroxide in the body.

 

Studies have found that melatonin on the safrole (a release of free radicals by DNA damage caused by carcinogens) caused by DNA damage protection can reach 99%, and the dose and the protective effect was a positive reaction. Melatonin has a significant antagonistic effect on the peroxidation of exogenous toxicants (such as paraquat) and tissue damage caused by free radicals.


Carnosine

Carnosine, scientific name β-alanyl-L-histidine, is a β-alanine and L-histidine composed of two amino acids dipeptide. Muscle and brain tissue contains a high concentration of carnosine. Carnosine has a significant inhibitory effect on free radicals and metal ions caused by lipid oxidation. In carnation, carnosine has the effect of inhibiting fat oxidation and protecting flesh color and has synergistic effect with vitamin E. In the United Kingdom, South Korea, Russia and other countries have studies have shown that: Carnosine has a strong antioxidant capacity, beneficial to the human body. Carnosine has been shown to remove reactive oxygen free radicals (ROS) and alpha-beta unsaturated aldehydes formed by excessive oxidation of fatty acids in the cell membrane during oxidative stress.


Glutathione (GSH)

Glutathione is a tripeptide that binds to glutamate, cysteine and glycine and contains thiol groups. The body on behalf of the metabolism of excess free radicals will damage the biofilm, speed up the body aging, and induced tumor or atherosclerosis and other symptoms. Glutathione is able to remove free radicals in the body, as an important antioxidant in the body, to protect many proteins and enzymes and other molecules in the mercapto. GSH structure contains a lively mercapto -SH, easily oxidized dehydrogenation, this specific structure makes it the main free radical scavenger in the body. For example, when a small amount of hydrogen peroxide (a strong oxidizing agent) is produced in the cell, GSH is reduced to water by glutathione peroxidase, which itself is oxidized to GSSG, In the liver and red blood cells in the role of glutathione reductase, accept H reduced to GSH, so that the free radical scavenging reaction can continue.

 

The latest research shows that GSH can correct acetylcholine, cholinesterase imbalance, play an anti-allergic effect, but also to prevent skin aging and pigmentation, reduce the formation of melanin, improve skin antioxidant capacity and skin gloss. Glutathione is the United States Merle Norman classic works, popular in Europe and America 50 years, widely known in the world. It is said to eliminate wrinkles, increase skin elasticity, shrink pores, dilute the pigment and systemic whitening have a significant effect.


Collagen (Collagen)

Collagen is a biological macromolecule material that is a white, opaque, unbranched fibrous protein. Collagen is a very important protein in the human body, mainly in connective tissue. It has a strong ability to stretch, is the main component of ligaments and muscle bonds, collagen or extracellular matrix of the main components. It keeps the skin elastic, and collagen aging, it will make the skin wrinkles.

 

Collagen is the body's anti-aging must make up the nutrients, accounting for more than 30% of the body's total body protein, an adult's body about 3 kg of collagen. It is widely present in the body's skin, bones, muscles, cartilage, joints, hair tissue, plays a support, repair, protection of the three anti-aging effect.


According to "Peptide Nutrition" (Peking University School of Public Health, Department of Nutrition and Food Hygiene Department of teaching materials) proposed that the molecular weight of 1000 daltons below the collagen without decomposition can be directly absorbed by the human body, in the oral absorption and topical skin care effect is obvious.
