The benefits of Antioxidants For Your Skin

Antioxidants are vital to your skin health. They are responsible for limiting the production of free radicals, which damage skin cells as well as collagen supplies and reduce the signs of ageing. Antioxidants repair and protect skin against the elements like sun, wind and cold, which is also known as environmental damage.

In particular, there are a few core antioxidant ingredients that can make a significant difference to your skin's health. These include:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin B3 Nicotinamide

VITAMIN C - Is a potent anti-oxidant which encourages the production of collagen. Skin brightening, increased elasticity and reduction of pigmentation are other significant advantages this vitamin offers. Firmer skin tissue can result from the use of Vitamins A and C. Tip There are many forms of Vitamin C and some are more effective than others. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (VC-IP for short) is an oil soluble form of Vitamin C which enters skin cells very easily and can be up to 7 times more effective than water soluble forms of Vitamin C. This is the most efficient, stable and non-irritating form of Vitamin C.

VITAMIN A as Retinyl Palmitate. This form of Vitamin A is effective, gentle and non-irritating. Skin damage caused by environmental damage like UV rays and pollution can be improved by using Retinyl Palmitate. Vitamin A is a fantastic skin rejuvenating ingredient, it can help to thicken skin tissue which is very advantageous for mature skins. Any problem skins, like Rosacea and Acne will also benefit greatly from the healing and rejuvenating benefits of Vitamin A.

VITAMIN E In addition to helping increase the efficacy of Vitamins C & A, Vitamin E also removes free radicals which cause skin ageing. It also acts as a preservative to ensure freshness and stability of the oils. Greater penetration and effectiveness is achieved by combining Vitamins A C & E.

VITAMIN B3 (Nicotinamide) Is excellent for fighting the signs of ageing, evens skin tone and strengthens skin barrier. More specifically, Vitamin B3 has been found to stimulate collagen which helps to increase moisture levels in the skin which in turn reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

MISMO's ACE Vitamin C Serum contains 3 out of 4 of these core antioxidants. Vitamins A, C & E are used in the correct proportions to deliver strong antioxidant benefits for skin health.

During the cooler months especially, skin can do with a little extra help. ACE Vitamin C Serum can offer skin with additional hydration and antioxidants to help protect and moisturise skin while also providing powerful anti-aging benefits too.

In particular, MISMO's ACE Vitamin C Serum will help to;

  • Increase moisture in all layers of the skin
  • Protect from UV rays, wind and cold (a saviour in Winter)
  • Increase firmness, elasticity and tone of skin
  • Ensure brighter and more radiant looking skin

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. 

Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    A word of caution ... some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

    WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.
