Best Anti Wrinkle Antioxidants for Skin Regeneration

Updated on October 12, 2012

This is an article about antioxidants, and I chose to put a photo of fruit here because I don't want anyone to lose sight of the fact that fruits and vegetables are a great way to take in a variety of antioxidants inexpensively.


Alpha Lipoic Acid

One of the best anti aging antioxidants is Alpha Lipoic Acid. If assists in energy production of the cell, helps regenerate vitamin C and E, Protects the cells genetic structure, and inhibits activation of cellular inflammation. It is also known to protect the skin from free radical damage from inflammation and sun exposure, and is believed to regenerate collagen.

If Alpha Lipoic Acid is taken as a supplement in capsule form, or applied topically, it performs as an antioxidant, and also boosts energy production in the cells. The belief is that the more energy your cells have, the more youthful you will be.

Over the past 10 years Alpha Lipoic Acid has gained popularity with volumes of books, notably, The Wrinkle Cure, and The Zone, touting its benefits, and most recently, products such as skin cream and tea, containing this miracle antioxidant.

DMAE

This is a very powerful antioxidant that is found in fish flesh, particularly salmon. If you hate salmon, as I do, you must take this supplement in order to get DMAE. The results are that the facial muscles will tighten, because DMAE affects the nerves. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine is released from the bulb of the nerve and locks onto receptors of the muscle, resulting in contraction. Your face will look tighter, and younger, with a sculpted, and chiseled cheekbones.

In short, this is one of the only things outside of surgery that is known to improve sagging skin.

Vitamin C History

Scurvy is a disease that is a direct result of lack of vitamin C. The symptoms are bleeding and spongy gums, combined with extreme fatigue.

The British sailors (Pirates) of centuries past were not getting enough food, and fruit was not included in their diets at all, and they were all developing Scurvy. The condition completely disappeared when they began bringing limes on ship with them, as limes contain high amounts of vitamin C. This is how the nickname "limey" was coined.

Vitamin C

this is a versatile antioxidant that is water-soluble,meaning that it is fragile, and unstable, meaning that you can take large doses without overdoing it.

Vitamin C also stimulates collagen production, and defends against free radical damage from too much sun exposure, and harsh elements.

Vitamin C is also now gaining a lot of attention not only as a supplement, but as a skin cream, to be used topically.

A good dose of vitamin C is 1,000 mg per day.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This is a product that my whole family has used for over 100 years.

It can be used externally as a moisturizer/topical antioxidant that produces a radiant and smooth look to the skin, while providing nourishment to the tissue, and may be ingested as an oral antioxidant in numerous, delicious recipes. This great tasting and extraordinary oil contains polyphenols, which are an excellent, and powerful antioxidant, not easily found in many other things on the market.

      It's amazing that something as simple as olive oil will help to eliminate those wrinkles. It, along with Vitamin C, is such a good natural remedy.
