By now, most of you are already aware about the wonders that Resveratrol, an anti-aging ingredient found in the skin of red grapes, has to offer. Researchers have long tried to determine exactly how Resveratrol manages to offer all sorts of skin and health benefits to the human body. Vine Vera was delighted to come across a new study, which actually proposed that the compound stimulates a stress response gene that ends up activating a number of genes that protect the body. Vine Vera found this study published in the Nature Journal. The study was conducted by a research team from The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA. According to the researchers of this study, two glasses of wine can trigger the stress response which is ultimately responsible for offering you with the health benefits that Resveratrol has to offer. Previous research has already associated Resveratrol with reduced cardiovascular diseases and longevity. A study which proved that Resveratrol could also help with the treatments of certain types of cancers was also published recently. There were a few studies that blasted the health benefits of Resveratrol by stating that people consuming Resveratrol were no closer to reduced risk of cancer when compared to people who consumed small amounts of the ingredient. Paul Schimmel, the senior investigator of this study, noted that most of these researchers had questioned the use of “unrealistically high doses of Resveratrol”. In this latest study, the group of researchers tried to determine if and how Resveratrol offered the human body with health benefits. The group investigated the compound’s association with the tRNA Synthetases, an enzyme that helps in translating the genetic material during protein synthesis. The researchers particularly focused on TyrRS, an enzyme that binds itself to Tyrosine, an amino acid, before linking with the genetic material. The group basically wanted to examine whether TyrRS was a target for Resveratrol because the compound had already shown to have properties that were similar to Tyrosine. The group also believed that the compound produces stress-response pathway in plant cells and it actually triggers a similar response in human cells. The experts used X-ray crystallography, amongst other tests, to compare the compound with TyrRS and determined that the compound actually mimics Tyrosine, to get TyrRS to bind with it. The researchers explained that it was this particular attachment that led the TyrRS away from the protein translation activity and pushed it closer to the cell nucleus. Once in the nucleus, this combination of Resveratrol and TryRS switched on the PARP-1 gene, a gene that is known to play a major role on aging, stress response and DNA repair. What’s more, the study also discovered that the PARP-1 gene switched on a number of other protective genes such as the SIRT6, p53 and FOXO3A. Vine Vera believes that these findings are actually very important for future Resveratrol studies because they offer a fundamental mechanism that showcases the beneficial effects of Resveratrol. Based on the results of this study, it can safely be assumed that taking moderate amounts of Resveratrol can actually offer a person with all sorts of health and skin related benefits.
Beauty is, and always will be, more than just how we look. However, how we look will always impact how we feel about our own beauty and shape how others see us. Why do we owe it to ourselves to look as beautiful on the outside as we feel on the inside? Because in many ways, external beauty is a reflection of our overall health and well being. Damaged skin, especially on the face, neck, and upper chest, is more than just unsightly; it may be the indicator of ill health.
When dealing with the health of your skin, much like the beauty we seek, it is something that must be dealt with at a level that is more than skin deep. Eating right and exercising, creating muscle tone beneath the skin, removing dangerous body fat deposits and nourishing our cells with the vitamins and nutrients they need are all parts of not just a healthy life, but a beautiful one as well. But which products are the ones to use to enhance all these things?
Companies like Vine Vera know that products we treat our skin with must be both safe and gentle, while at the same time effective and penetrating. Vine Vera products utilize a powerful compound known as Resveratrol, a derivative from a number of natural sources including Japanese Knotweed and the skin of red grapes. It is most commonly found in red wine, which can have amazing effects on the skin and the body beneath. To learn more our luxury skin care line, connect with Vine Vera on LinkedIn.
High in antioxidants, Resveratrol fights the signs of aging by eliminating free radicals that cause cellular degeneration and protect and repair UV damage to the skin. In addition, it has been shown to help reduce the risk for skin cancer, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This antioxidant which science is only beginning to understand, has also been linked to fighting Alzheimer’s disease, herpes outbreaks and cardiovascular conditions. By protecting the skin and rejuvenating it at the same time, Resveratrol can make a healthier, more beautiful you.
Feeling old is, unfortunately, the first step to getting old. Many studies have found that the younger a person feels, the more active of a life they lead. A powerful element of this can be appearing young. Even for those in their 40s and 50s who look decades older than they are, the toll of feeling old can have negative effects on their mental well being. Doctors have connected these feelings with rises in stress, blood pressure, depression and other adverse conditions that can harm the body as well as the mind.
Thanks to products containing antioxidants like Resveratrol, the appearance of aging can be halted and possibly reversed, resulting in a younger-looking, happier you. With a positive outlook on one’s own physical beauty, people are shown to live longer and be generally happier, resulting in not just a lengthier life, but a fuller one as well.
The human body is a vibrant ecosystem, and the whole doesn’t function right if any part of it is damaged. While most people are concerned with their cardiovascular, brain and gastrointestinal health (as we all should be), not enough people care for the largest organ in the human body; the skin. Not often thought of as an organ, it is one of the most important parts of our bodies, handling many important functions other than just keeping our insides inside and intact. These include maintaining body temperature, showing indications of overall health and maintaining a barrier against infections.
Proper skin care is necessary for good health, and a big part of skin care rests on the shoulders of the products we use on it. Health and beauty companies like Vine Vera have understood for a long time that keeping skin moist, clean, and invigorated is one of the best things you can do for your body. We do this in part by using our main ingredient Resveratrol, which is known for its anti-aging properties.
Moisturizers with Resveratrol keep the skin smooth and soft, allowing it to breathe. Our skin is covered with pores, small holes that extend down into the lower layers of skin. These pores have a number of functions, including temperature regulation and the removal of toxins from our bodies.
When it is cold, the pores close up, trapping natural body heat under the skin and keeping a person’s core body heat from dropping. When it’s hot, the pores open up to let out heat as well as secrete sweat, which cools the body down. Sweat is also a primary way that the human body removes natural toxins in our bodies. If the surface skin is dry and cracked, it becomes difficult for the body to do these functions.
2. Reducing Skin Cancer
Melanoma, or small cancerous growths on the skin, can not only be unsightly and discomforting; they can be incredibly deadly if not treated. Resveratrol has been shown to help reduce the occurrence of these growths and keep the skin doing the jobs it does best.
Harvard medical school researchers have shown that Resveratrol increases the cell’s energy production centers. This is something that is so powerful that isn’t even found in common pharmaceuticals.
One way to add Resveratrol into your skin care routine is through a skin peel, such as the Resveratrol Merlot Refining Peeling from Vine Vera. It provides a process by which the top layer of epidermis, along with dirt and oils that pile on the skin, are removed. This takes off the damaged layer on the surface and allows the lower layers to better do the job of allowing the skin to breathe. It also helps the skin absorb necessary vitamins and minerals from external sources such as the sun, but it cannot perform this task if there is too much damage to the skin. Resveratrol, when combined with the peel, infuses the lower layers of skin with antioxidants that remove free radicals, strengthening skin as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Take care of your skin, and it will take care of you. Vine Vera Skin Care Resveratrol is one of the secrets to endless beauty.
