You’re How Old? Keep Them All Guessing… With Nature’s Secret for Younger Looking Skin
Nobody wants to look their age. But time has a habit of forcing the issue. Except for a “lucky” few…
Who wouldn’t want to be one of the lucky ones who looks years younger than the calendar indicates? Someone who causes jaws to drop when they reveal the truth. (If they choose to.) Someone who time seems to have passed by.
Most of us know somebody who fits this description. A former classmate who’s taken for an offspring. A friend who’s always seen as the youngest of the group. A co-worker who fits in with a young crowd… even though they’re a generation older.
At last, we’ve figured out how this happens. In the next few moments, I’ll reveal what’s behind this anti-aging trend. And how you can take advantage of it, too.
So, hang on through a little bit of science. Because, at the end, I’ll show you secrets you can use to promote a more youthful appearance. And a surprising way to support longer, thicker, healthier hair.
You could spend thousands on spa treatments and not get the same results. It’s that good.
Flax: The Forgotten Food
Flax was an important crop in much of the ancient world. The Syrians farmed it some 9,000 years ago. It was a staple food in ancient Egypt. Flax spread to India, China, and through much of Europe.
Fibers from the flax plant were woven into a fabric we know today as linen. Oil from the plant – often called linseed oil – is a traditional furniture polish. Fresh, pure flax oil is also a traditional food in parts of Europe and beyond.
But flax has fallen out of fashion in most of the world. As a fabric, cotton is cheaper to produce. Other grains cost less to farm and harvest. And flax oil oxidizes quickly, so it has a short shelf life. As a crop, it’s been nearly forgotten.
But food-grade flax oil has an important trait. It’s high in Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). And this is why it’s a key ingredient in Best Life Herbals’ Ti-Hair Skin and Nails.
Because ALA is vital to skin health.
The Best Source of an Essential Fatty Acid
ALA is called an essential fatty acid. In nutrition, “essential” means you have to get it in your diet. Because your body can’t make it.
There are some nutrients your body can make on its own. Like vitamin D. When you expose your skin to strong enough sunlight, it triggers vitamin D production. Your body can also make some amino acids it needs to build proteins from other amino acids. And so on.
But you have to get essential nutrients from your diet. ALA happens to be one of those essential nutrients.
For one thing, your body needs ALA to build cell membranes. In other words, every cell of your body needs a little ALA to stay healthy.
ALA is also an Omega-3 fatty acid. Omega-3s are best known as healthy fats found in fish like salmon and mackerel. But ALA is different. It’s a “parent” fatty acid.
You see, your body can convert some of the ALA you eat into other Omega-3 fats. Like EPA and DHA. These are the Omega-3s found in fish oil that are so good for your heart, joints, and more.
Flax seed happens to be the food richest in ALA. In fact, up to about 70% of the fat in flax seed is in the form of ALA.
And here’s where supporting a more youthful look comes in.
Defending Your Skin Against the Effects of Age
According to researchers at the University of Connecticut, Omega-3s – including ALA – have many beneficial effects on skin…
- Help smooth dry, scaly skin
- Soothe red “angry” patches
- Promote a clear complexion
- Discourage abnormal growths
- Ease irritation – including irritation triggered by too much sun
- Promote faster healing of skin damage.1
Doctors in Korea showed just how potent Omega-3s can be. In a 2010 experiment, they rubbed EPA onto volunteers’ skin. Even in their oldest volunteers, the Omega-3s helped lower the irritation caused by too much sun.
This may help explain why Omega-3s like ALA promote smoother-looking skin. They not only defend skin cells’ outer membranes from damage, but help preserve your skin’s structure itself.
As great as this is, there are two challenges to getting enough ALA.
Why “Enough” ALA May Not Be Enough
Two factors stand in the way of getting enough ALA.
First, this fatty acid goes rancid very quickly. That’s because it readily combines with oxygen. Expose ALA to oxygen and it starts “rusting” quickly. Heat speeds the process even more.
You can grind fresh flax daily. But you still should keep the seeds away from oxygen as best you can… and use whatever you grind that day. But that’s a hassle.
Your second challenge is competition. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids compete inside your body. Your body uses the same enzyme – Delta-6 desaturase – to metabolize both Omega-3s and Omega-6s. And here’s the problem…
The typical Western diet is far higher in Omega-6s than Omega-3s. So our ratio of Omega-6s to Omega-3s is way out of whack. And Omega-3s just aren’t that common in our diets any more.
The richest sources of Omega-6s are vegetable oils – including safflower, soybean, and cottonseed oils – shortenings, margarine, and processed products made with these ingredients.
Salad dressings, sunflower and sesame seeds, and tree nuts are other sources rich in Omega-6 fatty acids. They’re also found in many vegetables and other foods.
You almost have to take an Omega-3 supplement to get enough. Cutting back on processed foods can also help swing your body back to a healthier balance.
When you do swing that balance back in the right direction, you should start to see a real difference in your skin. And here’s where you ladies seem to have an advantage over men.
Your body only coverts a limited amount of ALA to the more active EPA and DHA Omega-3s. But women’s bodies do it more efficiently than men’s.3 And every little bit helps.
Results Worth the Effort
Of course, the important issue is how well something works. In the case of ALA, it works very well. And not just for structural integrity.
In 2011, European scientists tested flax seed oil on healthy volunteers with sensitive skin.
In the flax group, skin sensitivity was less. Their skin held on to moisture better. Their skin was also smoother and less scaly. The control group didn’t experience the same effects.4
In this case, flax seed oil promoted a smoother, more youthful look in just a matter of weeks. But the results of a more recent study may excite you even more.
In this 2014 study, doctors added ground flax seeds to rabbits’ diet. A second group of rabbits ate their regular diet as a control. After 3 months, the flax group…
- Had lower blood sugar levels
- Saw an average drop in cholesterol of more than 20%
- Their hair had grown 26% longer, with 7% thicker shafts.
The control group didn’t experience any of these benefits.5
