Amount: 3 mg Daily Value: 20% Key Benefits: Healthy Skin, Hair, Nails, Immunity How it Works: · Zinc is an important nutrient to protect the body from free radical damage and is a critical detoxifier that helps to promote our ability to handle environmental chemicals and toxins. It is also thought to help the body utilize and maintain levels of vitamin A helping to maintain healthy skin cells and generate new skin after injury or surgery. By helping collagen formation, zinc aids in healing wounds and, by regulating the skin’s oil glands, may help improve acne. Zinc also improves immune resilience by regulating the function of white blood cells. It is involved in the production of T lymphocytes, important agents in cell-mediated immunity, which provokes the death (apoptosis) of virus-infected or cancer cells. Also Found in: · Spinach · Beef · Flax Seeds
Ingredient: Flaxseed Oil
Amount: 682 g (morning); 900 g (night) Key Benefits: Healthy Skin, Hair, Nails How it works: · Flaxseed oil is particularly rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are vital to the healthy functioning of the body and cannot be synthesised internally. Increasing dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids generally decreases inflammation. Dry skin, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, aging skin and other conditions have been shown to respond to flaxseed’s anti-inflammatory and overall skin-healing properties. Flaxseed oil supports skin protection and repair from the harmful effects of the sun that can contribute to skin wrinkling. In cases of acne, the essential fatty acids encourage thinning of the oily sebum that clogs pores. The abundant omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseed oil have also been shown to fortify hair and contribute to healthy hair growth. Similarly, the essential fatty acids in flaxseed oil nourish and strengthen dry or brittle nails, stopping them from cracking or splitting.
Ingredient: Turmeric Extract
Amount: 10 mg Key Benefits: Heart Health, Mental Health and Mood How it Works: · Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric, a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. It is a spice used in India for thousands of years in cooking and as a medicinal herb. It is also a very strong antioxidant and has been linked to improvements in heart disease and depression.
Ingredient: Coenzyme Q10
Amount: 15 mg Key Benefits: Energy, Endurance How it works: · Coenzyme q10 is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory produced within the body, however, levels of coenzyme q10 decline with age. Functioning in every cell of the body to produce energy, Coenzyme q10 helps produce energy in the mitochondria through the oxidation of fats and sugars, thereby supporting enhanced energy levels, greater endurance and a greater ability to lose body fat. Coenzyme q10 also works synergistically with other antioxidants to elevate cellular levels of vitamins C and E and glutathione helping to regulate blood sugar and enhance insulin sensitivity.
Amount: 100 mg Key Benefits: Brain Function, Muscle Health, Energy How it Works: · Carnitine is an amino acid that plays a key role in facilitating the delivery of fuel into the mitochondria of cells where it is converted into energy. Used together with the powerful antioxidants contained in Lumity, carnitine helps protect against and repair existing age-induced mitochondrial DNA damage, boosts mitochondrial function and supports improved energy turnover. Studies have also shown that carnitine helps prevent muscle loss associated with ageing and also helps to sustain brain function and mental sharpness by recycling cellular waste.
Amount: 180 mg (morning); 135 mg (night) Key Benefits: Healthy Skin, Hair, Nails How it works: · Cysteine is an amino acid with the ability to replenish the intracellular glutathione supply and protect the cells against DNA damage. Studies have shown that cysteine helps to prevent the glycation of collagen proteins working to help maintain healthy collagen and ensure youthful skin firmness and elasticity. As well as being a powerful antioxidant that protects against radiation, pollution, ultraviolet light and other causes of increased free radical production, cysteine is a key ingredient of hair and is essential for the growth, maintenance and repair of the skin.
Amount: 180 mg Key Benefits: Mental Alertness, Bone Health, Lean Body Mass How it works: A rginine is an amino acid that rejuvenates the body by stimulating the release of the healthy ageing human growth hormone known as HGH. HGH levels top out from ages 21 to 30, then slowly taper off while we enter a period called somatopause. It reduces by about 14% every 10 years from that point forward. As HGH levels decline, we can experience loss of lean body mass, an increase in body fat, a decline in bone density, disturbed sleep cycles and reduced immune function. Youthful levels of human growth hormone have been shown to slow down and often reverse the aging process. Taken before sleep, arginine maximizes the body’s ability to stimulate the release of HGH, and many studies have linked arginine to enhanced immunity, rapid healing from injury, as well as increased mental alertness, bone density and the ability to burn fat. Ingredient: L-Glutamine
Amount: 180 mg Key Benefits: Skin Health, Muscle Health, Immunity How it works: · Glutamine is involved in more metabolic processes of the body than any other amino acid. In conjunction with cysteine, glutamine supplementation has been shown to enhance the ability to store glutathione, the most powerful antioxidant in the body. It can also contribute to the production of other amino acids, glucose, nucleotides, protein and glutathione. It also supports the preservation of muscle tissue and a strong immune system.
Amount: 180 mg Key Benefits: Skin Health, Hormone Balance How it works: · Lysine, an essential amino acid, is a necessary building block for all body protein and it is crucial to the body’s production of hormones, enzymes and antibodies. Lysine plays a vital role in maintaining youthful appearance of the skin through the production of collagen, which minimizes wrinkles. Lysine is required to produce elastin, another essential component of firm skin. Taken together with arginine, lysine also stimulates and strengthens the healthy ageing human growth hormone, HGH, optimising the regenerative ability of this hormone in the body. Ingredient: Alanine
Amount: 180 mg Key Benefits: Skin Health, Immunity, Energy How it works: · Alanine, a non-essential amino acid, is a powerful antioxidant, a major part of connective tissue, an immune booster, an important energy source for muscle and the primary amino acid in sugar metabolism. Alanine also directly affects levels of carnosine, a unique dipeptide that helps to slow the glycation process which threatens healthy skin by breaking down collagen and reducing its regenerative ability. Levels of carnosine decline with age, and carnosine supplements are not readily absorbed. Alanine effectively upgrading the body’s stores of carnosine helping to prevent glycation from damaging the skin’s structure, thus keeping skin firm, elastic and youthful.
