Take Care of Your Skin This Summer
A quick glance through the scientific literature unearthed some very interesting studies on how NRF2 activation benefits skin properties. Nrf2 being the substance in our bodies that Protandim helps to stimulate.
Consider how much time you spend out in the sun. When the weather warms up in the spring, the dangers of UV radiation and sunburn become more and more of a reality. Weather channels highlight the UV index on the nightly news. Some occupations are higher risk than others such as farming, construction, professional sports or lifeguards and more prone to the damaging effects of the sun. Children too are in danger during their summer break considering how much time is spent outdoors. Incidences of Skin Cancer are increasing worldwide, and so these studies offer new light on the possible protecting influence of Protandim.
The article, “Nrf2-mediated protection against UVA radiation in human skin keratinocytes” revealed that a decrease in NRF2 activation provided the skin less protection against Ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation. UVA is an oxidizing agent “that causes significant damage to cellular components and that leads to photo-aging and cancer”. This means that Nrf2 may play a role in protecting human skin keratinocytes from UVA radiation-induced damage.
In a separate study, “Nrf2 links epidermal barrier function with antioxidant defense”, NRF2 activation was found to not only protect the skin from harmful UV rays, but also detoxify the skin too. The skin is the largest organ in the body and provides the first line of defense for the body from damage due to environmental factors. This study also shows that when the skin is damaged by means of a wound, Nrf2 activation is increased in the area of the wound, helping the skin to protect itself and aid recovery.
Ok, what does that mean?
