Healthy Skin Starts from Within

Healthy Skin Starts from Within - Double Wood Supplements

Laura Walko |

Time to show some skin! Summer is here and so is bathing suit season. But before you buy your next lotion/serum, remember not to judge a book by its cover. Healthy skin starts on the inside, and we have the hottest new trends for achieving a complexion that’s fresh, clear, plump and dewy. Let’s dive in. 

Out with the old and in with the new! There are as many as 18-23 layers of dead skin on your body at any given time. The more dead layers, the duller and dryer your skin will appear. NOt with the help of Hyaluronic Acid! Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring compound found within the body, whose main role is to retain water and moisture. It is the water retention that gives skin a plump and youthful glow. Hyaluronic Acid can also keep joints lubricated and supports skin, hair, nail, and retinal health. 

Collagen Peptides are extremely popular, and are being used to support everything from joint pain and aging skin. But did you know there are different types of collagen? Our Collagen Peptide powder contains types 1-3, all working together to form a complete “fountain of youth” for skin as well as joints. It comes from hydrolyzed collagen for maximum absorption and is made here in the USA, sourced from grass fed bovine. Mix this tasteless Collagen Peptide powder with your coffee, tea or water daily for maximum results. 

We’ve all been trained to believe aging isn’t easy. But what if I told you that inside your body there are genes that when activated, can actually slow the aging process? Sounds too easy right? These genes are called Sirtuin genes and they are linked to cell renewal, metabolic control, longevity and healthy aging. So naturally the next question is, how do we increase these levels? NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) has been shown in studies to increase Sirtuin levels, promote DNA repair and increase energy levels. NMN may also support cardiovascular health and cognitive function, as well as supporting NAD+ production in liver and muscle activity.  

A stressful day calls for a nice glass of red wine. And what could pair better with a smooth red wine than smooth clear skin? Unfortunately, the dehydrating effects of wine may actually have an adverse effect. If only we could harness those properties into something to provide benefits of wine, without the unwanted hangover or negative dehydrating side effects. Great news! Resveratrol is believed to be the red wine ingredient responsible for all these outstanding benefits. The antioxidant properties of Resveratrol are believed to include cardiovascular health, cognitive function via cerebral blood flow, and support increased longevity. 

Spermidine is a natural compound that plays an important role in cell metabolism. It’s found in a diverse array of foods such as green peppers, broccoli, wheat, mushrooms and a variety of cheeses. Spermidine has been thought to improve cognitive function and support a healthy memory. This polyamine compound is a part of several metabolic functions including cell metabolism, which contributes to its important role in healthy aging and cell renewal. Spermidine also plays an important role in autophagy which is the process of breaking down and removing old and unwanted damaged cells. This results in reduced inflammation and balanced cell growth. 

Our Fisetin concentrate is a potent concentrate from the stems of the smoke tree, but trace amounts can also be found in various fruits and vegetables. Fisetin is a powerful antioxidant, meaning it can lower oxidative stress in tissues, by supporting free radical scavenging, aka breaking the free radical chain by giving up some of their own electrons. This supports not only healthy aging, but cognitive function and memory. 

Serrapeptase is an enzyme derived from the intestinal bacteria in the silkworm, used to disintegrate the silkworm’s cocoon. This ability to break down proteins strong as silk, make it a logical resolution for the build up caused by inflammation. Serrapeptase has been used to promote healthy respiratory function, proper joint function, as well as reduce phlegm build up and mucus production. 

N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a precursor to L- cysteine, the amino acid responsible for the production of the antioxidant glutathione. But NAC comes with the added benefit of liver, lung, and kidney function, in addition to promoting immune system function. As a key ingredient in a number of skin products, NAC boosts skin brightening and lightening due to its immune system support and antioxidant properties. Bonus? These same antioxidant properties support an anti aging effect as well.
