MANILA, Philippines - Is it possible to arrest aging?  “Aging is a natural process, yet it is one of the least understood,” says aesthetic and rejuvenation expert Dr. Cecilia Catapang.

Some of the visible signs of aging are the appearance of gray hair, fine lines  and wrinkles, sagging muscles, and dull skin. “From age 20 onwards, the skin’s antioxidation defense and barrier functions begin to decline. By age 40 onwards, the skin loses its original functions at the cell level, resulting in visible signs of aging,” Dr. Catapang says. “But there  is a way to delay aging and slow it down.” 

Nutramedica recently launched Novuskin Lift, a naturally-derived food supplement  that contains a unique combination of 18 natural rejuvenating ingredients, mainly marine fish collagen, grape seed extract, and L-glutathione.

“We take great care in making sure that our ingredients are sourced naturally,”  says Nutramedica president and CEO Sheila Mae Velilla. “We believe that by combining the power of nature with sophisticated technology, we can create high-quality and innovative products that can enrich lives.” 

“Novuskin Lift provides multiple dermatological as well as health benefits, including skin protection and restoration,” Dr. Catapang notes. “It is more than just a beauty product.” 

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is most commonly found in the  skin, bones, muscles, and connective tissues. It gives the skin its strength and structural support, much like the foundation of a building. It keeps the skin firm and smooth. It also plays a role in the replacement of dead skin cells. However, collagen production declines with age. Sun exposure, poor diet, smoking, and a stressful lifestyle can accelerate the degradation of collagen, resulting in skin sagging and wrinkles.

There are at least 16 types of collagen. “Marine fish collagen is the most similar  to human collagen structure and has superior bioavailability over other types of collagens  so it is easily absorbed by the body,” Dr.  Catapang explains. “Clinical studies have shown that marine fish collagen efficiently postpones skin aging and improves photo-aged skin  due to sun exposure by increasing dermal density and skin moisture.”

Novuskin Lift, which has marine fish collagen as one of its main ingredients, has  been clinically-tested to stimulate collagen production, fight inflammation, and protect the  skin against ultraviolet radiation. Studies have shown that continuous use of Novuskin  Lift has resulted in the improvement of skin appearance, including better hydration;  smoothness; reduction of wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots; and overall radiance.

Grape seed extract, another ingredient in Novuskin Lift, is 20 times more potent than vitamin C. It contains a very concentrated dose of powerful antioxidants, which prevent the formation of free radicals that cause cell damage.  L-Glutathione also functions as a free radical neutralizer. “It is the most important antioxidant in the body  and is responsible for recycling other antioxidants, earning for it the title “master  antioxidant,” Dr. Catapang explains.

Other ingredients in Novuskin Lift include pine bark extract, which improves  the delivery of life-giving oxygen to cells by strengthening blood vessels and improving circulation. Antioxidants from green tea extract and coenzyme Q10 fight inflammation.  Korean ginseng extract refines and hydrates the skin by increasing oxygenation and  acts as a blood detoxifier, while oryza ceramide moisturizes the skin.

Lycopene in tomato extract has anti-aging properties and promotes skin health.  Yeast extract as well as zinc gluconate, ascorbic acid, manganese sulfate monohydrate,  copper gluconate, d-alpha tocopherol acetate, and selenium amino acid chelate provide essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Soy protein isolate provides high-quality  protein for the skin while horsetail extract provides silica and antioxidant agents to help  in collagen formation.

Collagen alone is not enough. Marine fish collagen, which promotes skin repair,  must be combined with antioxidants. Antioxidants have a crucial role in maintaining optimal cellular functions, but antioxidants alone are not enough. Vitamins and minerals alone are also not enough. Vitamins and minerals alone will not support the structural changes related to progressive degenerative processes.

“Our skin needs the combined effect of antioxidants, collagen, and vitamins  and minerals to restore it to its youthful suppleness,” Dr. Catapang remarks. Novuskin  Lift does this by eliminating free radicals from the body, cleansing it of toxins, and stimulating collagen production, which results in improved skin hydration  and   radiance, while giving a firming or “lifting” effect to the skin.

“Energize cells from within. Let nature do the makeover. Start looking and feeling young again,” Dr. Catapang concludes.
