Beautifully Nourished's Anti Age (Selenium ACE)
Nourishing Selenium ACE blend.
This protective blend of antioxidants has been synergistically dosed to maintain skin health and has the ability to reduce the visible signs of ageing by protecting the body’s cells against the damaging effects of free radicals.
Powerful Selenium protects the skin, alongside Vitamin A, which contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, Vitamin C, which encourages collagen formation and Vitamin E, which protects the cells against oxidative stress.
Here at Beautifully Nourished, we believe that Selenium is one of the most unsung hero's in the world of vitamins. Providing a host of benefits to both the mind, the body and the skin, our 'Anti-Ageing' formula provides 400% of the water soluble compound selenium.
The essential trace mineral, Selenium, is of fundamental importance to human health with many trials indicating Selenium may be beneficial in preventing mental decline*.
How it Works
Selenium: Selenium is an essential trace mineral, meaning it must be obtained through the diet or through selenium supplementation. Selenium is only needed in small amounts but plays a major role in important processes within the body, inclusive of metabolism and thyroid function.
Selenium uses in the body: Selenium is important for reproduction, thyroid gland function, DNA production, and protecting the body from damage caused by free radicals, infection and oxidative stress.
Selenium benefits for skin: The mineral ensures that skin remains firm and protected. Selenium stops free radical damage before premature wrinkles have a chance to form. It also helps to protect cell membranes against UV damage, inflammation and hyper-pigmentation.
Selenium benefits for hair: Selenium is essential for the production of the thyroid hormones that help to regulate hair growth. Selenium's anti-inflammatory properties may also promote a healthy scalp, hence it's appearance within many shampoos.
Selenium benefits, other: Selenoproteins (of which selenium is a component) help prevent the oxidative modification of lipids (fats), reducing inflammation and preventing platelets from aggregating. For these reasons, studies have suggested that selenium supplements could reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
What is selenium used for? Selenium supplements and food sources are used to treat or prevent selenium deficiency. Selenium is nutritionally essential for humans and acts as a constituent of more than two dozen selenoproteins that play critical roles in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection of cells from oxidative damage, stress and infection.
Selenium and Vitamin E: Selenium works with Vitamin E to safeguard cell membranes, the protective coating around cells, preventing cell damage.
Selenium vitamin benefits: We have explored Selenium as a powerful antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and helps defend the body against free radicals. It is this protection that can offset the visible signs of ageing including fine lines and wrinkles.
Selenium has been found to counteract the signs, both physical and mental, associated with ageing. Research demonstrates selenium's abilities relating to cognitive performance and it's possible prevention of mental decline.
*One small study found that supplementing with one selenium-rich Brazil nut per day improved verbal fluency and other mental functions in patients with mild cognitive impairment.
*The selenium rich, mediterranean diet inclusive of foods such as seafood and nuts, has been associated with a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Additional studies have found that antioxidants from both selenium food sources and supplements may improve memory in patients with Alzheimer’s.
Vitamin A: Vitamin A contributes to the maintenance of normal mucous membranes and contributes to the maintenance of normal skin.
Vitamin A has also been shown to support vision and contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage and to the formation of normal skin function.
Vitamin C is truly a hero ingredient with claims proving the vitamin to contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism, to normal psychological function and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress - all of which counterpose the signs relating to the ageing process.
Vitamin E: This anti-ageing vitamin formula concludes with hydrating Vitamin E. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
