I’ve tried two or three different brands of oral Glutathione before for the sole purpose of lightening my skin tone. Three years ago, I stopped using them and I was surprised when Dr. Mikki emailed me recently regarding their products. I was excited, to say the least! Most of us know Glutathione for its skin whitening benefits but besides that, it also has other properties that are proven to be beneficial to our body. And that’s Power and Beauty’s goal is – to really educate people about its benefits.
Power and Beauty distributes beauty products/supplement like glutathione and other whitening & anti-aging products like placenta, collagen, collagen creams, among others. Currently, they’re supplying glutathione injectables and oral forms for some well-known beauty/cosmetic clinics.
I’m currently using 3 (Natural Resveratrol, Acetyl L-Carnitine and Source Naturals Sublingual Glutathione) out of the 5 products sent to me. Please me give 2-3 months time to post a decent, in-dept review on the 3. 🙂 But for the meantime, here’s an overview provided by Power and Beauty for each product.
Life Extension L-Cysteine:
L-Cysteine is an amino acid whose primary function is to help the body build protein. It is also converted in the body to N-acetyl cysteine, a potent antioxidant. Cysteine is also a precursor to glutathione, itself a powerful antioxidant that plays an important role in the liver’s detoxification pathways. Additionally, cysteine aids in the formation of skin, and in hair and nail tissue repair. It helps protect the brain and liver from damage due to drugs, alcohol, and toxic compounds from cigarette smoke. N-acetyl-cysteine, for instance, which comes from cysteine, is used to counteract acetaminophen (paracetamol) overdose.
What are its benefits?
– Anti-aging effects on the body, reducing the accumulation of age spots
– Promotes healing after surgery and severe burns
– Promotes the burning of fat and the building of muscle
– Ability to breakdown mucus found in the respiratory tract causing it to be beneficial to the treatment of tuberculosis, bronchitis and emphysema
– Promotes the activity of white blood cells.
Another important function of cysteine is in the formation of glutathione, which is composed of three amino acids, cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid. Since cysteine may not be readily available in most Western diets, the lack of cysteine can hinder the formation of glutathione, which is why supplementation can be especially helpful.
Resveratrol belongs to a group of plant compounds known as polyphenols, which are naturally found in the skin of red grapes, certain berries, and other plants, albeit in low quantities. These compounds have antioxidant properties which protect the body against damage from cancer and heart disease.
Scientific studies have shown that Resveratrol supports healthy cardiovascular function through various mechanisms. Resveratrol, especially when combined with other polyphenols, is known for its’ anti-aging effects, as well as for its ability to support a healthy inflammatory response. NOW® Natural Resveratrol contains a comprehensive blend of polyphenols, including natural resveratrol and proanthocyanins (OPC’s from grape seed), plus catechins (green tea extract) for powerful cardiovascular protection.
What is Acetyl-L-Carnitine?
Acetyl-L-carnitine, also known as ALCAR, is an acetylated form of L-carnitine, synthesized to provide a more bioavailable form of L-carnitine. It is a modified amino acid (the building blocks of proteins) that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria (the “power plants” of cells), where it is broken down and converted into energy for the cell. Thus, it can help to boost physical and mental energy.
Carnitine is especially effective as treatment for people with heart disease, vascular disease, memory impairment, or neuropathy, as they do not have sufficient amounts of carnitine in the body.
What are its benefits?
– Powerful antioxidant
– Prevents brain deterioration
– Increases energy levels
– Helps improve memory
– Protects the heart
– Weight loss supplement
Source Naturals Sublingual Glutathione:
Glutathione is composed of the amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine. It is a potent antioxidant and works in the liver to protect the body from harmful substances. It is also a precursor to glutathione peroxidase, a key antioxidant enzyme, which protects against lipid peroxidation (fats turning rancid). Along with these health benefits, glutathione also has a noticeable whitening effect, which is why it has been widely used and recommended by dermatologists as a beauty product for the improvements in complexion that result from its use.
In sublingual form, glutathione is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract and making for 100% bioavailability or absorption of the glutathione. None is wasted, so the results are more immediate.
To get the most out of the product, we recommend taking 2-3 tablets daily under the tongue.
With a high percentage of soluble collagen to hydrate skin, our serum not only helps increase skin’s moisture level, it helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. This easily absorbed serum features Collagen Concentrate that permeates deeper than cream to bind moisture and help improve the contours of facial skin. Regular usage alone or under supplementary creams (such as antioxidant, elastin or peptide creams) can help smooth severe as well as fine dry lines or help improve skin texture.
