Amino Acids are like little super heroes that go above and beyond when it comes to our beauty. Here are a few of the benefits they provide.
Collagen Production. Did you know that collagen is a protein? It’s the most abundant protein found in the body. It gives the skin its strength & elasticity. And, without it we would have an abundance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
Hydration & Moisture. Specific Aminos are responsible for skin hydration by helping to keep a thin layer of water cushion around the skin cells.
Slows Aging Process. The skin is the 1st place we usually notice the signs of aging. Little fine lines around the eyes or forehead are usually the most common. Thankfully, Amino’s can help. When included in the diet they promote skin elasticity and help prevent wrinkles, skin sagging, uneven skin tone, and discoloration.
Promotes good pH. You never want the skin to be too acidic. Glutamine, an important Amino, helps keep the skin pH in balance. Without pH balance skin would have a slower repair process and more dying skin cells.
Promotes healthy hair & nails. The Essential Amino, Methionine, helps with the building of strong hair and nails while helping to reduce hair loss. It can also promote keratin production, which is important for both hair and nails.
Your entire body including your skin can benefit from taking an amino acid supplement to fill in those nutritional gaps found in any normal diet. Amino Acids are affected by many things including smoking, drinking alcohol, pollution, and more. These factors alone can prevent you from getting enough Aminos needed to not only look good but feel good.
So, in the name of healthy-looking skin, `Inner Health & Outer Beauty, make sure you are getting enough Amino Acids in your diet. Do it for your overall health, your skin, hair, and nails!
