Imedeen Anti-Aging Supplements: Frequently Asked Questions

How It Works?

Can Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets be taken over a longer period of time? Can I take them permanently?
As Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets are a food supplement with natural ingredients, there are no indications that one should not take them as long as desired. Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets are developed to be a permanent part of your daily skincare routine. Clinical studies have shown that Imedeen's tablets are safe for long-term use. An efficacy and safety study carried out over 12 months clearly demonstrated this. Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets have also been through rigorous toxicological tests, confirming that they are safe product.

What happens if I stop taking Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets?
The condition your skin was in before you started taking Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets was the result of many years of skin deterioration. Similarly, should you stop using Imedeen's tablets, the results you have obtained will not disappear overnight, but will recede gradually. While we have not examined the pace at which this happens, we know from consumer experiences that it varies from person to person; some say after as little as one month and others have reported from four to six months.

Do Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets show an effect on other parts of the body?
Yes. During the studies, the effects of Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets in the face have been shown by ultrasound measurements and clinical grading. Furthermore, in the Imedeen Prime Renewal� study, the skin on the hands and on the décolletage (upper part of the chest) were investigated with equally good results. In the Imedeen Time Perfection� study, 67% of the women taking the product noticed improved texture and decreased dryness on the skin all over their bodies.

Can Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets help oily skin?
We have not evaluated the beneficial effects of Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets on oily skin, so we do not have any documented benefits for this skin type.

Do Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets protect the skin against sunburns?
Imedeen's tablets do not work as a sun protector � always use a sunscreen with an appropriate SPF when outside.

Do Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets have effect on hair and nails?
We have not performed clinical studies covering hair and nails.

My day cream contains antioxidants (Vitamins C and E).
Do Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets and creams work together or against each other?
Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets and creams, lotions, etc., work in different ways and affect different layers of the skin. Being tablets, Imedeen works from within the body. The ingredients are transported to the dermis (the supportive layer of the skin) via the blood, where they effectively assist in defending the skin structure against the harmful effects of free radicals. Creams and lotions work in the epidermis, so Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets and creams or lotions containing antioxidants complement each other.

Formula and Ingredients

What is Biomarine Complex?
The Biomarine Complex, exclusive to Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets, is a fish extract rich in proteins and polysaccharides similar to those naturally found in the skin's supportive tissue. These proteins are similar to the proteins found in the dermal layer of the skin � collagen, elastin and fibrillin. It has been conclusively shown to improve skin density. Polysaccharides are the sugar molecules that create the moisture binding gel-like substance in the skin. These molecules can bind up to 1,000 times their weight in moisture and are responsible for the skin's hydration. Biomarine Complex has in several scientific studies shown to improve skin's density and moisture content.

What is the difference between fish protein in Imedeen and the fish oils seen in the news?
Fish oils are an energy source and building blocks for cell membranes while fish proteins are building blocks for various proteins including collagen, fibrillin, and elastin, which are important to the structure and density of the skin.

What is an antioxidant?
An antioxidant helps defend the skin against the signs of aging by neutralizing free radicals. Found naturally in the body and skin, antioxidants are stable molecules from which free radicals can "steal" an extra electron. Once they have acquired an extra electron, free radicals are neutralized. In this way, antioxidants help defend the skin against free radicals, thus aging.

What is lycopene?
Lycopene is the pigment that gives ripe tomatoes and watermelons their bright red color. Its molecular configuration makes it one of the best natural free radical scavengers. It plays an important role in defending lipophilic (fat-based) environments, such as the cell membranes, against damage by free radicals.

Where does the lycopene in Imedeen come from?
The lycopene is extracted from red, ripe, specially grown, non-genetically modified tomatoes.

What does grape seed extract do to the skin?
Grape seed extract effectively decreases the amount of free radicals in water-based environments such as cell plasma. Furthermore, it accumulates in connective tissue that is rich in proteins and polysaccharides, such as the skin.

Are there any additives in Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets?
While Imedeen's tablets do not contain lactose, preservatives or artificial flavoring, they do contain additives such as binding agents. For a complete list of ingredients, please see the box.

Do Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets contain fat? Will the use of Imedeen' tablets cause weight increase?
Imedeen's skin rejuvenating tablets do not contain fat. Furthermore, six month's intake of Imedeen's tablets showed no change in weight on average.
