Oxidative stress is a condition in which the body experiences an imbalance between the production and elimination of oxidising substances. These radical molecules play an important role in defending against bacteria, transmitting biochemical signals between cells and other physiological processes. However, when there are too many of them they become dangerous and lead to endothelial dysfunction. Oxidative stress is also at the basis of ageing processes, especially of the skin. The composition of S1 makes it a product which is ideal for acting specifically on an epithelial tissue level. Evening Primrose oil is extracted from the seeds of a herbaceous plant local to the Mediterranean area and is an oil which is rich in fatty acids, particularly gamma-linolenic acid. This acid is responsible for its beneficial effect on the skin as it intervenes in prostaglandin synthesis by increasing the production of prostaglandin PGE1, which has anti-inflammatory and stabilising properties, increasing skin elasticity and inhibiting deterioration. Hyaluronic acid is added to this, providing the skin with moisturisation, elasticity and protection. Centella, with its triterpene components, including asiaticoside, enhances collagen synthesis and other factors involved in the vascular epithelial structure. This increases vessel strength and improves microcirculation. Green tea and vitamin E have antioxidant properties. The polyphenols contained in Camellia sinensis scavenge free radicals and inhibit cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenasae enzymes, at the same time stimulating the production of antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase. Alpha lipoic acid has been known for years as one of the most useful anti-ageing remedies as it preserves the correct functional and structural integrity of tissues and certain organs (the liver, for example), and optimises glucose metabolism in order to reduce the formation of advanced glycation end products, significant determinants of ageing. In summary, S1 is a powerful ally in the prevention of skin ageing.
Take one tablet in the evening after dinner with plenty of water. For better absorption and to increase the product’s effectiveness, we recommend taking the tablets with hydrogen-rich water obtained using the FRAME® D5 device.
