7. Healthy skin & hair
Laminine is not a beauty product but it does encourage better skin and hair by way of encouraging the production of collagen. While Laminine in itself is not a collagen supplement, the amino acids or protein in its formula OPT9 does the job in helping skin look and feel better.
Collagen fibers give skin its suppleness and lifting qualities. These fibers last about a year before being replaced with new ones. UV radiation from the sun reaches deep through the skin layers and is powerful enough to break the collagen fibers—this is called photo-aging. It can also damage the nucleus of skin cells, destroying their ability to make collagen and elastin.
Skin cells need essential amino acids in order to make collagen and elastin fibers, which are proteins. The unique fertilized avian egg extract in the Laminine formulation provides the necessary essential amino acids in a free and natural form that is easily absorbed and utilized by skin cells.
The unique fertilized avian egg extract in the Laminine formulation provides a concentrated supply of growth factors with one in particular called Fibroblast Growth Factor. This is actually a hormone, which interacts with the fibroblast cells, stimulating them to make collagen.
Fibroblast cells lie at the base of the skin matrix and produce collagen and elastin. If these cells are given a “boost” with this hormone, it may help stimulate the production of these anti-aging components of the skin.
The added potent dose of Glycine, from Laminine’s marine protein further enhances the anti-aging effect of glutathione in the body. Glycine from the marine protein also builds collagen, making the skin look healthier and less wrinkled.
Hair is composed of protein. L-Cysteine is an amino acid that is known to promote hair growth. It improves hair quality and texture, and it is known to double the length of hair. L-Cysteine also prevents hair from falling out, and it has a detoxifying effect in the body.
The PESE and marine vegetable proteins in Laminine also provide a very potent dose of Arginine. Arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide and this affects the modulation of the hair cycle.
As antioxidant, removes toxins from the skin and body
PESE contains Cysteine, which is a precursor to glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, receiving much attention nowadays for a healthier looking skin. Antioxidants fight free radicals, harmful compounds in the body that damage cell membranes and DNA. Free radicals occur naturally in the body, but environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoking, and air pollution) can increase the number of these damaging particles. Free radicals are believed to play a role in aging as well as the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer.
Cysteine or NAC is a powerful anti-oxidant and can help prevent side effects caused by drug reactions and toxic chemicals, and helps break down mucus in the body.
