In other words, it’s the main molecule that firms, plumps and hydrates the skin to maintain a youthful complexion.
Dr. David Sinclair, a Harvard Medical School genetic and anti-aging scientist, confirms that this is, “… what keeps water in the skin.”
When the body produces less of this molecule scientists say it results in, “…loss of skin moisture accounting for some of the most striking alterations of the skin including… wrinkling, altered elasticity and loss of face volumes [in] the cheekbones and lips…”
The “wrinkle accelerator” is a biological quirk that slows down the production of this natural beauty serum.
As less of it is produced, skin cells start dying of dehydration and break down causing creases, grooves and wrinkles to form.
Not to mention loose skin that discolors and even blotches.
Unfortunately, as the Dr. Oz blog says, “…the amount in skin diminishes most significantly after age 40.”
Better Nutrition Magazine reports, “… by the time you hit 50, you’re left with only half that you had in high school.”
And Columbia University Medical Center says that it, “…degrades over time, leading to the formation of folds and creases.”
The exciting news is the same study I told you about a minute ago also concluded that this molecule is, “… an established intervention for correcting facial volume deficiencies…”
In addition, the study said you can use a topical, non-invasive, cosmetic treatment as an effective way to “… replenish the skin” with lost amounts of the molecule.
Now, let’s stop for a second because I want to make sure you understand a few critical points.
First… the main reason your skin ages and wrinkles is because…
The “wrinkle accelerator” causes the body to slow down the daily production of this natural beauty molecule.
And your body needs to produce a certain amount every single day to keep your skin healthy.
In fact, (the average person has about 15 grams in the body at any one time and one-third of it is used up daily)…
And since 50% of this beauty molecule is found in the skin tissue…
And since the body starts slowing down how much it makes on a daily basis…
You start getting wrinkles and other signs of “aging.”
Second… this molecule is what stimulates collagen production.
You need this molecule in ample amounts in order for the body to make collagen in the first place. Without it skin cells break down, wither and lead to wrinkles.
Third… this is, as the study said, “…the principle molecule responsible for binding and retaining water…” in the skin.
It literally holds up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture…
