There has been much talk about the benefits of bio-active peptides or bio-peptides and how they might help reverse the aging process, combat wrinkles and generally boost healthy living. Many commentators are pointing to the use of bio-peptides as the largest single contributor to healthy looking skin, and stronger, youthful hair.
Bio-Peptides are now available in many different forms of anti-ageing tonics, serums, day and night creams and also as nutritional supplements in the form of natural peptide complexes, allowing you to experience the benefits of these youth-retaining natural beauty complexes externally and internally. But what actually are bio-active peptides and collagen peptides, and how do they affect your skin, tissue and overall health?
Peptides are compounds of two or more amino acid molecules which are connected via peptide bonds. They have the same basic structure as proteins but tend to be shorter in length and so can be used to make different parts of cells and the body’s essential parts. Usually seen in advanced skin creams as dipeptides or tripeptides, these are essential for maintaining the glow of your skin and keeping wrinkles at bay, and the key lies in proteins. To fully understand the value of proteins to the skin, it’s important to know what they are capable of achieving.
After water - the basis of life – proteins are the most abundant substance in the body, and have the most effect on how the body works and its ability to heal. Approximately a third of protein is stored in muscle, a fifth within cartilage and bone, a tenth of it in skin with the remaining protein distributed throughout the other parts of the body. Along with water, we are creatures of protein, and that in turn impacts on our health and how we age.
But proteins themselves are constructed from amino acids, each of the twenty-two kinds having individual characteristics that join in different ways to form longer chain proteins of different forms and abilities; proteins are not one substance, but thousands of different substances, and essential amino acids are a necessary part of healthy living and radiant skin. However, there are certain amino acids that must be eaten or applied, as the body is not capable of making them directly. Therefore, in order to ensure that we have a plentiful stock of the right proteins and peptides, we need to ensure that we are eating the right things and applying the right creams and supplements to pour skin.
Protein itself is one of the best nutrients that you can include in your diet as it metabolises over an extended period of time and ensures an even blood-sugar level, rather than spiking, and that in turn means an even level of peptides which help protect your body against the ravages of the world and time itself. The importance of proteins as the building blocks of peptides is obvious, but what peptides in particular should you be looking out for and how do you get them? Certainly, from a skincare and antiaging point of view, among the most important of the peptides are:
Peptides exist in many sources of food, but they may only be in low concentrations, so it becomes essential to bolster your system with supplements that can not only give you radiant skin, but can slow the mental aging process too. for the Ageless specializes in natural and highly-concentrated topical bio-peptides or collagen peptides, with the addition of powerful anti-aging ingredients like the bio-antioxidant complex Neovitin, made from Ginseng biomass and with the addition of argan oil and sodium hyaluronate to give a firmer and healthier look. Whether it is alpha-hydroxy acids, retinol, resveratrol, or any of the anti-oxidant compounds, getting a daily dose of peptide proteins can have enormously beneficial effects.
If you’re looking for deep skin or tissue regeneration without invasive surgery or dangerous chemical compounds, Russian bio-peptides are an ideal and relatively inexpensive solution. As natural supplements, oral bioactive peptides have been tried and studied for over 40 years with no reported side effects. There are 21 key peptide complexes that cover the main bodily functions.
Dr Khavinson and the gerontology team who developed this advanced anti-aging supplements, recommend using a combination of two or three at the time for tackling concerns. If you’re new to bio-peptides or are looking for a mild enhancement, you may want to start with one course, see the effect and then repeat as needed. The best thing about them is you don’t need to take them continuously and most people only do a one-course boost once or twice a year to maintain full benefits.
Vladonix targets the regeneration of the thymus gland and serves as the top immune system booster of the peptide family. This peptide is fundamental because by the age of 50, only about 15 per cent of the thymus remains active in the healthy adult.
Visoluten supports vision health and enhances the quality of the retina, cornea and eye blood vessels, promoting the restoration of visual function and acuity. It has a synergetic effect with Ventfort (vascular peptide complex) and Cerluten (nervous system and brain peptide complex) and the three of them are available as an effective eye-health supplement combo.
Endoluten stands out as the most precious of all peptide complexes for its ability to restore the pineal gland function. It not only supports the health of the endocrine system, but also boosts libido and has been proven to be an effective tumor inhibitor.
Bioactive peptides can re-activate the body’s main tissues, because they act like tiny gene switches that turn only needed processes for the body’s self-healing and regeneration. This is why they are also called bioregulators. There are peptide complexes for each of the key organs, like Svetinorm for liver regeneration.
The 21 peptide complexes can be combined in groups of 3 or 5 for a synergetic effect. Check out the Bundle Sale offer for BioPeptides to discover Dr Khavinson’s recommended peptide combos, which for the Ageless is running now as a special offer.
Derived from the very building blocks of life, enriched collagen peptides (with bio-peptide complexes) are an obvious easy win when looking to stem the effects of the natural aging process. However, making sure that you get the maximum benefit externally from them usually means using a highly recommended skin supplement along with a healthy diet that promotes quality organic peptides and proteins.
The new anti-ageing range of bioactive peptides are designed to ensure that your whole body benefits from this innocuous, fully natural and powerful compounds. By using products such as these, you can not only make the most of your skin and body now, but give it a boost for the future too.
