The Anti-Aging Skin Care Secret Basic to Life Itself
Life on Earth is made possible by the miraculous and wondrous natural organic compounds known as amino acids. All living creatures and every plant that grows upon this planet share exactly the same amino acids. What makes us different from the grass on the ground or the birds in the air is how these life giving compounds get arranged.
Amino acids are the building blocks of every structure in your skin. Essential skin proteins like collagen, elastin, lipids and all cellular tissues are made from amino acids. In addition, amino acids perform enumerable other functions in your skin. Amino acids are the main component of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). The NMF performs the function of holding and regulating the water content in your skin.
Several years ago AminoGenesis' world class team of doctors, chemists and researchers set out to harness the power of amino acids. After over a decade of research and testing, the original AminoGenesis formula was created. From the very beginning the results people experienced astounded the research team. Now, stars like Kristian Alfonso and Renee Jones cannot go without the technologically advanced formula contained in AminoGenesis' products making their skin more youthful and fresh than ever before.
Facts About Amino Acids:
Hydrate: The First Step Towards More Healthy, Vibrant and Youthful Skin
The word hydration is probably the most often used word when speaking about skin care. While most experts agree that keeping the skin well hydrated is of paramount importance, exactly how to achieve proper hydration is not well understood even by the most seasoned skin care professionals.
The outer layer of the skin is called the stratum corneum. Until recently, this outer surface has been thought of as nothing more than a layer of dead surface skin cells. As a result, many skin care companies treat it as such. In reality, the surface of the skin is a very important bio-sensor. The stratum corneum is designed to protect us from the environment and attack from the bacteria world. It also controls the storage and balance of water within its tissues. On a cosmetic level it is what the world sees. The condition of your stratum corneum is what gives your age away.
Typical skin care moisturizers work by covering or sealing the skin to help prevent moisture loss. While these types of products may give the skin a temporary, nicer appearance, they do nothing to directly hydrate the skin. However, these oily products can clog pores, block the release of toxins and prevent the skin from breathing. In some, these cover and seal products may actually contribute to the aging process.The first part of the AminoGenesis formula is the ability to hydrate by directly moisturizing the skin. In order to achieve direct hydration these criteria must be met:
- All ingredients used must be capable of penetrating the stratum corneum, the protective barrier of the skin.
- The emulsion to be transported must be of correct molecular size and weight to dissipate into the skin.
- Electro-static properties must be correct.
Beautiful, radiant and youthful looking skin starts with maximum hydration.
Nourish: Supply Your Skin With What It Craves Most
Amino acids are the basis for all living tissue on Earth. The skin is a living, breathing organ and needs an abundant supply of amino acids to function properly. These "natural miracles" are the very building blocks needed for the creation of important skin proteins like collagen and elastin. Without amino acids the skin simply cannot function properly.
The 17 selected amino acids in AminoGenesis are essential to healthy skin. These are exactly the same amino acids found in collagen and elastin. Each amino acid in AminoGenesis is made from plant sources and is painstakingly purified. These amino acids are then carefully blended to match the optimum amino acid composition in collagen. By utilizing the unique delivery system in AminoGenesis, the skin now has available the amino acids necessary to beautify and repair itself on a daily basis. No other skin care formulation can approach this level of perfection!
Amino acids are the main moisture retention factors in human skin. Topical application of amino acids has shown to dramatically increase moisture content while decreasing visible lines. In addition, amino acids help in the production of collagen and elastin, regulate sebaceous gland activity and decrease discoloration.
There are lots of skin care products in the world. One could argue, pro or con, on the merits of different ingredients. However, no one can doubt the importance of amino acids to the health and beauty of your skin. Period. With that in mind, why wouldn't you have amino acids in your skin care products?
Defend: Protect Your Skin From Bacterial and Free Radical Attack
We are under constant attack by the bacterial world and our only protection is the surface barrier of the skin known as the stratum corneum. However, when this structure is depleted or dehydrated, bacteria can get a foothold. The mere act of washing the skin with water creates micro tears in the surface. These micro tears then provide a safe harbor for opportunistic bacteria to gain a foothold, propagate and potentially interfere with the function of the skin. AminoGenesis creators believe that bacterial attack plays a role in both the dysfunction and the aging of the skin.
Laboratory tests were performed on dozens of moisturizers. They were exposed to the common bacteria listed. After 36 hours bacterial colonies were growing at levels too high to count. The AminoGenesis base formula was exposed to the same bacteria. After 24 hours no bacterial colonies remain.
This special defense system ensures the highest level of germ free delivery of AminoGenesis to your skin and helps your skin defend against attack from the bacterial world.
Free Radical Defense:
Free radicals are unbalanced molecules caused by the sun, environment and pollution. These unbalanced molecules randomly bounce around inside skin cells and cause damage to important cellular tissues including DNA structures. Amino acids are natural free radical scavenges that seek and neutralize free radicals to help prevent the damage done by them
17 Amino Acid Based Formula Combats Aging
Amino acids are the heart of the AminoGenesis formula. There is no function which occurs in your body that does not involve amino acids. Below is a list of the 17 plant-derived amino acids in the AminoGenesis formula and some of their basic functions:
- L-Proline: Important in maintaining radiant and youthful skin.
- L-Histidine: Protects the body from radiation and sun damage. Antioxidant, which neutralizes free radicals helping to prevent skin cell damage.
- L-Arginine: Speeds the healing of skin cell damage and wounds.
- L-Lysine: Skin conditioning agent. Involved in cellular and tissue repair. Essential amino acid needed for collagen production.
- L-Glycine: Repairs damaged tissue and promotes healing.
- L-Isoleucine: Branched chain amino acid. Important in protein synthesis and tissue repair.
- L-Tyrosine: A building block of protein used to help the moisturizing product penetrate the skin. Converted by skin cells into melanin that protects against harmful effects of UV light.
- L-Leucine: Branched chain amino acid. Protects against muscle protein breakdown.
- L-Glutamine: Helps prevent muscle and tissue breakdown.
- L-Valine: Branched chain amino acid. Important for muscular and tissue strength.
- L-Threonine: Important for the formation of collagen and elastin.
- L-Methionine: Neutralizes free radicals and fights aging of the skin.
- L-Alanine: Important in protein synthesis.
- L-Acetyl Tyrosine: Highly bio-available form of L-Tyrosine, a building block of protein.
- L-Aspartic Acid: Involved in building skin cell DNA (genetic structure in the nucleolus).
- L-Serine: Important in formation of cell membranes.
- L-Phenylalanine: Building blocks for various proteins. It can be converted to L-Tyrosine.
