Glutathione Thioesters (Bioavailable Glutathione)
Why is it important?
Glutathione is a vital molecule for survival:
- Mother of all antioxidants
- Main detoxifier
- Master of the immune system
The body produces glutathione, but several situations including noncommunicable diseases, poor nutrition, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation decrease the levels of glutathione in the body.
This makes us subject to:
- Cellular degeneration (oxidative stress and metabolic alterations )
- Infections and cancer
The liver is overstressed and damaged and therefore unable to perform its detoxifying action.
- is the combination of three amino acids: glutamate, cysteine and glycine.
- Glutathione has a strong purifying action due to the presence of sulphur in its molecule. This allows it to capture harmful substances present in the body such as free radicals, toxins, mercury and other heavy metals.
What is its activity?
- Normally, glutathione can not be absorbed by the body because it is not able to cross the cell membrane.
- The peculiarity of the InnBioTec patented molecule, is its ability to cross cell membranes because glutathione is linked to fatty acids.
- When our molecule meets a cell, it behaves like a Trojan horse. It diffuses in phospholipids with fatty acids of the membrane, allowing the glutathione to go through the membrane and reach the inner side of the cell.
- Once inside the cell, the molecule splits into its components, providing two antioxidants and one anti-inflammatory moieties to the body.
When science embraces nature: from the encounter between linseed and yeast the most effective antioxidant available today for cosmetics is born.
Composition and benefits
Renovase® Promotes the renewal of skin cells.
Multifactorial process that combines intrinsic factors (decrease in cellular function genetically programmed during aging) with extrinsic factors (for example, exposure to ultraviolet rays and environmental pollution).
Many scientific studies have shown that in advancing age, a significant reduction in intracellular glutathione (GSH) levels correlated with an increased oxidative stress, occurs in the tissues. The most visible effect is skin aging.
The GSH supplied as such is not able to penetrate into the tissues, due to its hydrophilic nature.
Renovase®, thanks to its lipophilic nature is able to cross cell membranes. Inside the cells, enzymes split the molecule releasing GSH and AGE, which restore the correct antioxidant defenses.
Renovase® has been incorporated into a liposomal structure to ensure the complete skin bioavailability. In this way, therefore, it exerts the most of his activities.
Renovase® enhances and increases the positive effects of both and contains a mixture of three bioactive molecules.
Benefits of Renovase®
Anti Aging Effects
Protects cells from aging caused by the ultraviolet element of the solar radiation:
- attenuation of expression and aging wrinkles
- uniformity of skin color
- a more elastic skin
- increased hydration and brightness
It provides a whitening action on the skin, with a visible reduction of senile skin blemishes. Following the application of the product for at least one week 2 times a day, the effects are immediate:
Glutathione (GSH) is the main antioxidant defense of cells and performs fundamental physiological activitie :
Equilibrio ossido-reduttivo cellulare: il residuo di cisteina del glutatione reagisce con i radicali liberi e li inattiva.
Detoxification: GSH at liver level participates in the detoxification mechanisms of xenobiotics. Reacts with endogenous and exogenous toxins (e.g. drugs), producing water soluble conjugates that are excreted with urine.
Modulation of the immunological system: The immune system is very sensitive to levels of GSH and its functionality is compromised in conditions of low levels of glutathione, which are found in conditions of stress, aging and all diseases of degenerative character.
Cellular Regulation: Glutathione participates in the regulation of the pro-oxidant/anti-oxidant balance, upon which many vital functions of the cell depend such as DNA synthesis and repair, protein biosynthesis, and the activation and regulation of enzymes.
Essential fatty acids (AGE, PUFA).
AGEs belong to the category of polyunsaturated fatty acids, as they have more double connections along the carbon chain. Liquids at room temperature are indispensable for the human organism. These acids carry out a wide range of extremely important functions, including the regulation of cholesterol metabolism, the maintenance of cell membranes, moisture and elasticity of the skin, the production of substances with hormonal activity .
