Food supplements against wrinkles, what they are

Supplements, simple foods for the skin

Beyond the fantastic qualities of chocolate , which would be an excellent natural supplement, at least as reported by NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), regarding recent research on skin health , there are also other products capable of decelerating the process. of the formation of the dreaded wrinkles .

Natural supplements against wrinkles

The natural “over the counter” supplements that are generally used against wrinkles, are a counterpoint to what fresh foods offer. Generally, among the best known, there are those based on vitamin C, blueberry or turmeric , coenzyme Q-10 , selenium , but not only.

In some cases these are products based on antioxidants , which act by slowing down the action of free radicals. Among the main antioxidants are carotenoids and polyphenols – for example, you will find resveratrol -based supplements on the market .  

In other cases, these are products that deeply nourish the skin, rich in precious minerals and vitamins, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D or vitamin E, or even selenium . 

Amino acids, building blocks of proteins, contribute to maintaining skin elasticity and tissue tone. Enzymes and hormones – such as DHEA – also help to aid in the body’s maintenance process. 

But beware: if foods and supplements are important, other conditions also determine the wrinkle factor. For example, as indicated by MedlinePlus , heredity, excessive exposure to sunlight and smoking are among the factors that most affect the formation of wrinkles.
