BEAUTY SHOT Benefits : SO HOW DOES IT WORK ?
HOW DOES BEAUTY SHOT protect your skin from free radical damage ?
Our skin is regularly exposed to a variety of environmental, chemical, and toxic agents that cause oxidative stress and inflammation in skin cells and lead to degeneration of our collagen matrix, thinning of the epidermis, reduced skin immunity and all the signs of premature aging.
The most common causes of oxidative stress to our skin are pollution, tiredness, sugar, junk food, smoking, alcohol and excessive UV exposure, and if the inflammation resulting from oxidative stress is allowed to continue unchecked, it can cause a cascade of cellular degeneration and accelerated skin aging.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Mother Nature’s natural antidotes to cellular oxidation are antioxidants : diverse molecules, usually in the form of pigments found in fruits and vegetables such as polyphenols and carotenoids that have the ability to neutralize free radicals in our skin and body and protect us from oxidative stress.
More and more, plant polyphenols are being identified as the best, most effective solution to increasing our skin’s defenses against oxidative stress and premature aging. In numerous research studies, plant polyphenols have been shown to shield our cells from oxidative stress, protect from sun damage, speed up cellular repair, boost cell immunity and protect skin against all types of disease and attack. Polyphenols have been shown to extend the active lifespan of skin cells and provide significant antioxidant, chemopreventive and immunosupportive effects to our skin cells.Polyphenols are key contributors to the process of cellular regeneration and collagen production. The concentrated, 100% natural fruit and plant extracts in BEAUTY SHOT provide a very high dose of broad-spectrum polyphenols to the skin, giving powerful protection against oxidative stress to all skin layers.

HOW DOES BEAUTY SHOT stimulate collagen synthesis and smooth your skin.. ?
Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the body. It is the ‘glue’ that holds our bodies together and represents about 70% of our skin and connective tissue when we are young. Natural collagen levels decrease with age and as a function of lifestyle choices (smoking, alcohol, fast-food & lack of sleep etc all accelerate collagen loss).
As we lose collagen – due to age or lifestyle choices, our body's natural ability to replace what has been lost also decreases. It is estimated that beyond the age of 25 the body's natural collagen levels typically reduce at a rate of 1.5% per year, leading to a 20% - 25% loss of collagen by the time we are 40 - or more if our skin is regularly exposed to free radicals and oxidative stress due to lifestyle choices.
As collagen production slows, we also lose elastin and hyaluronic acid and the structure of our connective tissue begins to break down; The less collagen we have, the thinner skin our skin becomes and the lesss it is able to maintain elasticity, retain moisture and protect itself against external attack. This leads to a thinner, drier complexion, wrinkles and the signs of aging.
Fortunately, numerous studies have demonstrated that combining flavonoids and natural Vitamin C with collagen supplementation leads to higher levels of collagen synthesis, as the antioxidants protect collagen-forming fibroblasts in our skin from oxidation and therefore allow them to focus their energy on regeneration – and better do their job.
BEAUTY SHOT contains pure, highly bioavailable Marine Collagen Type 1 combined with concentrated polyphenol antioxidants and natural Vitamin C. This combination helps to increase collagen synthesis and leads to an improvement in skin hydration, density, elasiticty and youthfulness1.
