Glissandrin: 卓越超凡之抗氧化

在InStyle的二零一一年十月號中,我們認識了皮膚科專家對一些常見肌膚疾病的處方。其在首部份就向我們分享了如何阻止大自然侵害我們皮膚的重要貼士。來自邁亞密的皮膚科醫生Leslie Baumann推薦我們使用抗氧化物來保護皮膚。而事實上,抗氧化物的內涵遠比最精明的專家和消費者所知道的還要深刻。

絕大部分的抗氧化物都能清除自由基,但是有些抗氧化物分子的體積太大,無法快速滲透肌膚內層。這絕對是抗氧化護膚品所面對的一大難題,因爲,皮膚問題的根源往往出現在細胞底層。

值得慶幸的是,我們找到一些不僅能穿透皮膚細胞,還能增強皮膚自身抗氧化防禦系統的抗氧化物。簡單來說,這些抗氧化物能提高身體自身的防禦能力來擊退自由基。

我們皮膚自身具備抗氧化防禦系統,使其能從容面對來自體內、體外有害刺激所産生的自由基。太陽光輻射就是其中一種重要的外來刺激。長時間或過度的曝曬會擊垮皮膚自身的抗氧化防禦系統,導致皮膚細胞受損,並使組成皮膚的重要成分,如膠原蛋白和彈力蛋白等流失。

這些嚴重的後果被稱爲‘光老化’,它所引起皮膚結構的長期改變最終會在皮膚表面逐漸顯現。其實,我們對‘光老化’的迹象一點也不陌生,皺紋、褐斑、失去彈性、皮膚粗糙和色素不勻都是光老化引起的後果。

Glissandrin™ 是以五味子乙素爲主要成分的護膚品牌。它增強皮膚自身抗氧化防禦系統的作用已經被證實。除此以外,Glissandrin所具有的消除自由基能力和被皮膚快速吸收的特點,使其成爲卓越超凡的抗氧化物

Glissandrin是從五味子果實中粹取的純天然成分。香港科技大學高錦明教授帶領的研究團隊針對五味子乙素做了一系列研究。最近,其研究團隊在備受尊敬的醫學雜誌Fitoterapia(2011)上發表了一篇有關五味子乙素能預防並恢復太陽光輻射所引起皮膚損傷的文章。

Glissandrin: A superior antioxidant

In the October 2011 issue of InStyle, we learned what skin experts are prescribing to combat a number of common ailments. The first in the series shares tips on protecting skin from the elements. And while Miami dermatologist Leslie Baumann recommends using antioxidants, there’s more to the story than what’s known by even the savviest experts and consumers.

Most antioxidants are free radical scavengers, but some are so large that they cannot penetrate skin cells. This presents a problem since the source of the issue lies within the cell walls.

Fortunately, some antioxidants are not only able to penetrate skin cells but also to up-regulate the antioxidant defense systems inherent in our body. In simpler terms, that means they actually enhance the body’s natural ability to combat free radicals.

Our skin is equipped with antioxidant defense systems to fight free radicals caused by harmful stimuli. One such stimulus is solar light radiation. Long-term exposure or over-exposure to the sun can overwhelm these antioxidant systems, resulting in damage to the skin cells and the depletion of essential components such as collagen and elastin.

The consequence is photoaging, chronic alterations in the skin’s structure that become visible on the surface. Many of us are all too familiar with the signs of photoaging, which include wrinkles, brown spots, inelasticity, coarse skin texture, and uneven pigmentation.

Glissandrin™, with Schisandrin B as its key compound, has been proven to enhance the antioxidant defense systems naturally found in our skin. This is in addition to its ability to scavenge free radicals. Readily absorbed by the skin, Glissandrin is a superior antioxidant.

Glissandrin is a natural ingredient derived from Schisandra berry. Researchers at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, led by Dr. Robert Ko, recently published a paper in the respected medical journal, Fitoterapia (2011), on the protective properties of Schisandrin B in preventing and restoring skin damage from solar radiation.
