Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant that is found naturally in the skin and seeds of grapes. It’s the reason why doctors actually recommend a glass or two of red wine with dinner (oh yes!), as it has been shown to provide great benefits for heart health when ingested. But, it has also been proven to provide benefits topically as well, which is why it can be found in many of Apriori Beauty’s fabulous products!
Resveratrol functions as part of the defense system in plants. It protects plant cells from damage, disease, stress, infection and UV radiation. When applied topically, resveratrol has also been shown to provide similar protective functions for skin cells. As an antioxidant, it provides protection for skin in two ways: 1) by fighting and extinguishing free radicals, and 2) by preventing their formation. Free radicals (unbonded electrons) can impact and damage skin, causing irritation and inflammation, which are the key causes of skin stress and premature aging. It has even been shown to boost anti-aging enzyme in the skin called sirtuins, which are universal regulators of aging in virtually all living organisms. Similar to resveratrol, sirtuins serve as guardians of the cell, allowing cells to survive damage and delay death. Not only is resveratrol highly protective, studies have also shown it to boost skin collagen production and cell production by protecting against reproductive-slowing enzymes. It truly is a power ingredient for skin health and beauty!
Recent studies have also suggested that resveratrol may be a potent regulator of sleep-wake rhythms and could be of major interest in the study of sleep as it is associated with aging and brain functions. Thus, it can also be found as an active ingredient in LifeoxyDream Sleep Mist.
