Supplements that Promote Anti-aging from the Inside Out

Aging is inevitable. It is a natural process that our bodies go through whether we like it or not. Aging begins the day we are born and is celebrated each year on our birthday. As we get older, birthday celebrations may continue, but the excitement of getting older tends to wane. In fact, we begin to reach for products and solutions that promise to reverse aging. We believe that aging is actually not so bad, even in our later years. However, we are also convinced that aging gracefully and beautifully is even better!

Genetics play an important role in the way that you age, but it also depends on how you take care of yourself. Our bodies sometimes need a little extra support the older we get. It comes down to staying active, dieting, and including additional anti-aging and dietary supplements to maintain healthy organs. Sure, adding a bit of makeup here and there can cover fine lines and wrinkles, but it does not get to the root of the issue. Furthermore, signs of aging are not limited to the skin's appearance. Achy joints, mild memory loss, and brittle bones are also common symptoms of aging.

Age positivity has taken over, and for good reason. Challenging ageism and traditional agist ideas are on the rise, encouraging everyone to embrace aging and getting older. Amandean is a part of this amazing movement: we believe that aging should be celebrated with confidence!

Amandean has you covered with anti-aging supplements that can help reduce signs of aging and enhance your beauty from the inside out. Who says aging has to be dreadful? We encourage that you continue to celebrate, get excited, and feel fantastic about your age. Today, let's discuss which of our products contain anti-aging properties and how best to incorporate them into your daily routine. Think of this as a one-stop-shop to address your aging concerns.

Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body. The difference between collagen peptides and marine collagen is how it is sourced. Collagen is essential for building and renewing cells throughout our bodies. This is especially important because as we age we experience a decline in collagen production. As a result, our skin begins to sag and produce fine lines and wrinkles. The reason for this is collagen’s role in maintaining the skin's structure.

Hydroxyproline is one of the most prominent amino acids in the skin. Hydroxyproline tightens the skin, repairs connective tissue that thickens the skin, promoting more elasticity. It also refines texture and helps with cell turnover.

Research has shown that incorporating collagen anti-aging supplements into your daily vitamin routine can reduce physical signs of aging, which is why many people refer to collagen as ‘the fountain of youth’. It keeps the skin feeling moisturized, toned, and vibrant!

But the anti-aging effects of collagen don't stop there. Collagen anti-aging supplements are a useful tool for reducing pain and joint inflammation and have been used for treating conditions such as arthritis. Reducing the chances of developing brittle bones, which can be an unfortunate byproduct of aging, is also a beneficial result of incorporating collagen peptides into your dietary routine.

Liposomal Vitamin C

Combining Collagen with Liposomal Vitamin C is a match made in heaven. Liposomal Vitamin C has been shown to increase collagen production in the body by up to 8 times, and we all know how imperative maintaining optimal collagen production is for not just your skin but your entire body! Vitamin C not only helps to boost the immune system but also stimulates collagen production for healthy skin, hair, and nails. It is essential for cross-linking collagen molecules. Vitamin C is also known to reduce signs of fine lines and wrinkles, and for restoring the skin's youthful radiance. Our skin is susceptible to free radical damage and harmful UV light, and all it takes are a few hours of exposure to experience the effects of oxidative stress. Liposomal vitamin C actively works to protect our skin by minimizing hyperpigmentation and sun damage. Vitamin C is a key component of Korean Beauty (K-beauty) skincare routines. The liposomal formulas are the most bioavailable form to take, meaning Liposomal Vitamin C absorbs into the body most effectively as opposed to traditional powders, tablets or capsules.

Liposomal Glutathione

Liposomal Glutathione is a perfect match for Vitamin C and E. Glutathione is the body’s most powerful antioxidant that works to improve damaged skin and reverse signs of aging. Like vitamin C, glutathione helps remove free radicals from the cells. Free radicals cause much of the damage that our skin endures as we age. Many people have also found glutathione to be helpful with hyperpigmentation and improving overall complexion.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 Fatty Acids are rich in DHA, the structural component of the skin. DHA's job is to maintain a healthy cell membrane. DHA promotes soft and supple skin that’s free of wrinkles. As we age, our DHA levels decrease. This is why giving your body a quick boost with Vegan Omega-3 Fatty Acids will help prevent signs of aging in the skin.

Additionally, Vegan Omega-3 promotes optimal brain function. As we age, we become susceptible to cognitive impairment and memory loss. Vegan Omega-3 works to help sharpen the mind and boost concentration.

Incorporating vegan omega-3 can help manage chronic joint pain because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring antioxidant found in the body that helps generate energy to the cells. It also can reduce oxidative stress and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Levels of this, as well as collagen, begin to wane as we get older.

Turmeric

Turmeric is not just a kitchen spice for taste and color. It has many benefits when it comes to aging. Turmeric has antibacterial and exfoliation properties that reduce acne breakouts. Turmeric contains curcumin, which fights free radicals in the skin, slowing the aging process and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

For Those Who Care: The Impact of Plastic Neutrality
For Those Who Care: The Impact of Plastic Neutrality

July 21, 2021

We are literally drowning in plastic - especially those in vulnerable communities. It's easy to assume your contribution to plastic waste is minimal; you bring your own reusable shopping bags to the grocery store, say no to plastic cutlery with your takeaway food, and choose glass jars of almond butter over plastic ones. Undoubtedly, these small changes add up for the good! But if you take an audit of the products you use every day, you'd probably be astonished to see all the single-use plastic that's hidden in plain sight. But what if we went “plastic-neutral''? What if both brands and individuals made a vow to offset the amount of plastic they produce or use, and help to divert it from our waterways and landfills? And is plastic neutrality just for the large corporations or can we make an impact as individuals by offsetting our own plastic consumption?
