PURECOL – SKINCARE AND ANTI-AGEING BENEFITS

Ageing of the skin occurs due to a number of factors. As we get older our skin starts to produce less collagen and elastin, which leads to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. This effect is exacerbated by a loss of hydration and exposure to environmental factors such as air pollution and UV radiation from the sun.

The presence of free radicals also compound this damage to our cellular DNA. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells, cause illness and accelerate ageing. As the body gets older, it loses the ability to fight the effects of free radicals. Lifestyle factors, such as exposure to toxic chemicals (pesticides and air pollution), smoking, alcohol and fried foods, can lead to accumulation of free radicals in the body.

Anti-oxidants can prevent the harmful effects of free radicals. Whilst anti-oxidants are present in many edible fruits and vegetables, Colostrum is known as a very powerful anti-oxidant, which is why many refer to this Superfood as “Liquid Gold.”

PureCol Colostrum can be taken as an internal skincare supplement that offers the following benefits to the skin:

  • Colostrum is the only known source of the enzyme Telomerase which prevents and repairs damage of cellular DNA, contributing to the slowing and reversal of the ageing process.
  • Increased elasticity and improved viability of collagen restores the firmness of the skin.
  • Elevated growth factors restores youthful radiance and repairs cells.
  • Repairs sun damage, prevents sunspot growth and reduced scarring.
  • Reduces appearance of acne, eczema and psoriasis.
  • Powerful immune-boosting compounds (Immunoglobulins, Lactoferrin, and MSM) in Colostrum fight infection.
  • Proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) prevent an overactive immune response, countering auto-immune disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.

COLOSTRUM PROTECTS AGAINST VIRAL AND BACTERIAL INFECTIONS

In the modern world our immune systems are constantly under attack from the stress of our fast-paced lifestyles and the impacts of pollution. When the body senses foreign substances (antigens), the immune system’s job is to recognize these antigens and to eliminate them. B lymphocytes (types of white blood cells) are triggered to make immunoglobulins (antibodies), that are specialized proteins that lock onto specific antigens to destroy them. Antibodies therefore neutralize toxins and kill bacteria and viruses.

Chronic stress harms us by suppressing our immune systems, making us more vulnerable to infectious bacterial and viral diseases. When we experience stress our bodies go into survival mode – the “fight or flight” response. This directs our energy away from maintaining good health, using it instead to fuel our survival responses. Our bodies can produce excessive amounts of cortisol which weakens our immune systems by decreasing the production of white blood cells that are meant to help fight against germs and illnesses.

The PureCol Colostrum Immune Booster is packed with Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Immunoglobulins (antibodies), and Lactoferrin. MSM is a sulphur compound that is linked to fighting infection. Immunoglobulins are the protein molecules produced by white blood cells. They form a critical part of the immune system by killing bacterial cells, destroying viruses, and protecting us from becoming ill.

Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein present in large quantities in Colostrum. It is the perfect protein because it interferes with the cell walls of bacteria, viruses and parasites, and destroying them. New research has also discovered anticancer activity as well as anti-inflammatory effects. Furthermore, Lactoferrin are also used for treating stomach and intestinal ulcers, diarrhea, and hepatitis – C, and used as an anti-oxidant to prevent tissue damage related to ageing. I also promotes healthy intestinal bacteria.
