The Wonder That is Vitamin C

Vitamin C can be called the elixir for a youthful and healthy skin, which is our first line of defense against any external threats like pollution, UV exposure, and diseases.

We need vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. It is truly the wonder nutrient that nourishes the body inside out.

It is accepted that nutritional intake with respect to both macronutrients and micronutrients is vital for skin health and appearance. Studies have given evidence that many vitamin deficiency diseases result in significant disorders of the skin.

Normal skin contains high concentrations of vitamin C, which supports important and well-known functions, stimulating collagen synthesis and assisting in antioxidant protection against UV-induced photodamage.

Let’s get to know how Vitamin C helps maintain the health of the largest organ in our body- the skin and how Wellbeing Nutrition’s (WBN) Skin Fuel works as a skin-care product.

Collagen Production

Collagen is the most common form of protein found in the body, it's present everywhere and provides strength to our bones, muscles, tendons, fat, and ligaments. The healthy elasticity of skin, which keeps it from sagging, is due to collagen. It is a key structural constituent in skin that fortifies hair and nails.
When collagen levels are healthy, cells that contain collagen take on a strong and youthful appearance.

As we age, we lose collagen at the rate of 1.5% a year from our early 20s. This loss results in wrinkles, fine lines, dry, blemished and thinning skin. Skin Fuel counteracts age-related collagen loss and gives you radiant, glowing, youthful-looking skin.

Research shows that humans are unable to synthesize vitamin C. It is obtained through the dietary intake of fruits and vegetables. Citrus fruits, berries, tomatoes, potatoes, and green leafy vegetables are excellent sources of vitamin C.

If you desire a plump healthy baby like skin then you must ensure regular intake of adequate Vitamin C daily. We recommend Skin Fuel Wellbeing Nutrition; it contains Japanese Collagen Peptides, a bioavailable source of Marine Collagen that provides building blocks for nourished, firmer and glowing skin from within.

SkinFuel™works from the inside out. It increases collagen in the bloodstream by adding 1000mg of hydrolysed marine collagen from each tablet (daily dose), but more importantly it triggers the body’s own collagen.

Reducing Oxidative Stress

Vitamin C is an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure. As an antioxidant, it protects the body from various deleterious effects of free radicals, pollutants and toxins.

Skin Fuel contains vitamin C along with l- glutathione, a naturally occurring antioxidant enzyme that quenches and neutralizes damaging free radicals in the skin. It is fortified with extracts of natural antioxidants like grapeseed, blueberry and goji berry that help give you even-toned and radiant skin and fight premature ageing.

Synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid

The key molecule involved in skin moisture is hyaluronan or hyaluronic acid as it has a unique capacity of retaining water. Vitamin C is critical for the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has been touted for speeding up recovery time and relieving painful joints. Without adequate levels of vitamin C, your body will not gain the full benefit of foods containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, but it decreases as we age. Eating foods rich in vitamin C and amino acids can increase the levels of hyaluronic acid and collagen in the body as both are important for skin. Foods such as oranges, red peppers, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and strawberries are all rich in vitamin C.

Studies show that ingestion of hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin and makes skin look supple and hydrated. Skin Fuel contains dermatologically approved hyaluronic acid and natural Vitamin C that is 100% bioavailable and together they effectively lock in moisture.

Lighten Dark Spots and Even Skin Tone

Vitamin C inhibits melanin production in the skin, which helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and brown spots, even-out skin tone, and enhance skin radiance.

Our skin needs nourishment to remain healthy and glowy from within. Skin Fuel is India’s First US-dermatologist formulated skin nourisher, which contains Japanese Marine Collagen, hyaluronic Acid, l-glutathione bioactive antioxidants from potent natural sources. This delicious blueberry mint skin elixir counteracts age-related collagen loss to help improve skin texture and complexion, control pigmentation and discolouration, reduce acne and wrinkles, and give your skin a natural glow.

The Wellbeing Nutrition Skin Fuel tablets are made using naturally derived, widely-researched ingredients to help you achieve skin radiance. It contains no artificial flavours, colouring and zero calories, and works wonders in repairing connective tissue, which helps give you stronger, healthier and faster-growing hair and nails too.

It has been designed to enable the active ingredients to penetrate cell membranes, fight free radicals, improve skin water content and reduce dark spots and acne. These Skin Fuel tablets increase skin luminosity by 36%, reduce skin imperfections, and restore skin radiance by protecting both elastin and collagen fibers for brighter, clearer and even skin tone.

Dermatologists have conducted and clinically studied the Wellbeing Nutrition Skin Fuel, measuring changes in wrinkles, pore size, age spots and skin texture. Using this unique 4-in 1 formula, researchers saw positive results in weeks, not months!

Final Takeaway

Healthy and beautiful skin is the first sign of good health. One has to consume a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to provide the body with adequate nutrients essential for youthful, blemish-free skin. Daily intake of scientifically-backed supplements like Skin Fuel can effectively provide potent nourishment to the skin and make you feel beautiful inside-out.
