The increasing popularity of astaxanthin as an anti-aging dietary supplement has found confirmation by renowned researchers and health specialists around the world. Astaxanthin is the strongest (presently known) antioxidant in the world! The water-soluble astaxanthin used by us is enclosed in micelles and has a further approx. 8 times stronger result than conventional astaxanthin. According to the study, this antioxidant makes it more efficient, more resistant to stress, prevents cardiovascular problems, relieves chronic inflammatory processes and naturally protects the skin against rapid aging and wrinkles.

Top quality collagen hydrolysate is a powerful weapon in the fight against signs of aging.
Several clinical studies consistently showed a strong effect on skin regeneration, skin hydration and skin elasticity of collagen hydrolysate with short chain collagen oligopeptides. The depth of wrinkles could be significantly and sustainably reduced. The skin was improved visibly and sustainably. The age-related decline in the synthesis of collagen and other components of the extracellular matrix of the skin could be positively influenced. These mechanisms are also discussed as the basis for the positive effects of collagen hydrolysate on individuals with cellulitis. For example, a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study in 105 women showed that daily intake of collagen hydrolysate over a 6-month period significantly improves skin density and skin texture and reduces cellulite-typical dents.

The cluster activator contains a specially activated water. The cluster structures the cell water and has a positive and activating effect on the metabolism of the skin and the excretion of toxins.
Zinc is the most important trace element for a beautiful skin. We are forced to absorb zinc in sufficient quantities with our food. For rapid bioavailability, we use an organic zinc gluconate. Delaying remodelling processes in the body are therefore not necessary.
Zinc contributes to the maintenance of the normal skin.
Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal hair.
Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal nails.
Zinc helps protect cells from oxidation stress.
Zinc contributes to a normal acid-base metabolism.
The importance of biotin for skin and hair was recognised since long. Biotin is water-soluble and can only be stored in the body to a limited extent. Continuous intake is therefore absolutely recommended, especially for blunt, brittle hair or nails.
Biotin and zinc complement each other synergistically, as both drugs are involved in the metabolism of the skin and promote cell growth.
Biotin contributes to the maintenance of a normal skin.
Biotin contributes to the maintenance of normal hair.
Biotin contributes to a normal energy metabolism.
Biotin contributes to a normal metabolism of macronutrients.
Acerola - the vitamin C power fruit
In addition to the known effects of vitamin C as an antioxidant / free radical scavenger, acerola has a positive effect on the skin and is therefore considered a good remedy in the anti-aging field. The immunity system is strengthened and stimulates the digestion, which is directly visible on the skin.
Natural vitamin C plays a big part in the collagen production in the dermis! Acerola strengthens the venous and arterial walls and helps break down plaques in the vessels.
Vitamin C helps protect cells from oxidation stress.
Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for normal skin function, blood vessels, bone and cartilage functions
Vitamin C contributes to a normal function of the immunity system.
Vitamin C contributes to a normal energy metabolism.
Vitamin C helps reduce fatigue and tiredness.
Coenzyme Q 10 - the super fuel for the skin
This substance is of great importance to the beauty of the skin. The body's own production of Coenzyme Q 10 decreases with increasing age, which also increases the production of free radicals in the skin. Free radicals cause the skin cells to age faster. Therefore, skin care to preserve a youthful skin is hardly conceivable without coenzyme Q 10.
Silica, the water-soluble form of silicon
Most of the silicon is present in the connective tissue and in the bones as well as in the cartilage tissue and plays an important role in the building of the structure. Of particular importance is the involvement of silicon in the formation of collagen and elastin. Silica supports a firm and elastic skin and a firm connective tissue. If silicon or silica is missing in your daily diet, this can lead to cellulitis and age-related damage to the skin.
Vitamin B3 Nicotinamide
This vitamin produces a positive influence on the skin*. Both skin renewal and the resistance of the skin are significantly improved and the protection against environmental influences increased.
In addition, Vitamin B3 stimulates the formation of skin fats and collagen fibres, refines the skin's appearance and thus makes the skin radiant.
Niacin contributes to the maintenance of normal skin.
Niacin contributes to a normal energy metabolism.
Vitamin B5 - Ca- pantothenate (pantothenic acid)
We are interested in its effect on the skin. Vitamin B5 is needed to build up all connective tissue, hair, nails and mucous membranes. It promotes the regenerative ability and any wound healing of the skin. It is also used as acne therapy because it reduces the sebum production of the skin.
Vitamin B6 pyridoxine
We use a plant-derived pyridoxine. It ensures firm nails, healthy hair and a beautiful complexion.
