The Power of Antioxidants

Assorted healthy foods on a table

It’s hard to keep up with the latest health trends. Something could be good for you one week and harmful the next, depending on which study you read. Fads and trends come and go, but every once in awhile, one of these health trends makes a big impact and has a lasting impression. These are the ones you should incorporate into your lifestyle.

Antioxidants are an example of a healthy buzz word which stood the test of time and research.  Antioxidants are helpful on so many levels because they help the body defend itself against harmful free radicals.  Because of this, antioxidants help your body both inside and out.  With so much pollution, carcinogens, viruses, and bacteria to stand up against, your body could really use the additional help obtained from antioxidants.  Vine Vera has taken advantage of the useful properties of antioxidants.

Simple Science Lesson

Once you understand the science behind antioxidants and free radicals, it is easy to understand why foods and products with antioxidants have become so popular.  Antioxidants work on a molecular level, so that is where to begin. Channel your seventh grade science class. Remember that atoms have neutrons, protons, and electrons.  Electrons surround the nucleus, playing a large part in determining how an atom behaves and bonds to other molecules.

Free radicals occur when these bonds split. Usually when bonds split, both molecules come away with the correct amount of electrons to keep it stable.  But sometimes when weaker bonds break, free radicals are born. The unstable entities immediately attack the surrounding molecules, trying to capture one of their electrons.  Once a free radical has stolen an electron, the victim molecule becomes a free radical and so on and so on.  If left unchecked, this chain reaction can eventually damage a living cell.

Antioxidants: The Body’s Super Hero

Although the body should be able to manage and offset a moderate amount of free radicals, sometimes the the free radical is too great and more antioxidants would help.  Antioxidants can give a free radical one of its own electrons without the risk of becoming a free radical themselves.  This puts a stop to the whole electron stealing chain reaction.

Increase Your Antioxidant Intake

We have been waiting for someone to tell us what we knew all along: that dark chocolate and red wine are good for you.  In fact, with the amount of antioxidants they contain, they absolutely are. Vitamin E and Vitamin C are important antioxidants and are found in plenty of fruits and vegetables.  The reason why red wine contains antioxidants is because Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in red grape skins.  This is the key ingredient in Vine Vera skin care products.  This means that the helpful antioxidants will be delivered straight to your skin, where sun and pollution can produce many harmful free radicals.

Chemical-Free Ways to Protect Skin This Summer

Getting badly burnt by the sun is never fun, and what’s even worse is what it does to your skin in the long-term. In the long-term, sun exposure (even if you don’t burn!) increases your risk of melanoma (the main type of skin cancer) and causes you to age and wrinkle earlier in life. This is why using a broad-spectrum, SPF 30 or higher sunscreen is so important.

But what if your skin can’t stand the chemicals used in most sunscreens? Some people are actually allergic to common sunscreen compounds, and can get irritated, red skin or even rashes from applying it, which is, of course, not desirable even if it doesprotect you from sun damage. When you’re trying to avoid getting burnt, it kind of defeats the purpose if the thing you’re using to prevent that burn makes you red all by itself.

So what’s a girl to do? Well, if you have a negative reaction to chemical sunscreens, or just want to avoid using them in general for other reasons, Vine Vera is here to show you how you can prevent sun damage without relying on irritating chemicals.

Use Physical Blocker Sunscreens

Probably the most important thing to understand if you want to avoid irritation with sunscreen is the difference between chemical sunscreens and physical-blocker sunblocks. The most common, easily available, and well-known sunscreens use specific chemical compounds that—when hit with ultraviolet rays—absorb the UV ray, react chemically, and give off the energy from the radiation in harmless ways that doesn’t hurt your skin. Physical sunblocks, on the other hand, are non-reactive, and are usually made up of a combination of finely ground minerals, generally titanium and/or zinc-based, which—when hit with those very same UV rays—simply reflect them away. No chemical reaction, just an ability to completely block the UV rays from even touching your skin at all.

Because they’re made with non-reactive minerals, physical sunblocks are extremely unlikely to irritate your skin, and allergies to them are practically unheard of. So, with a physical sunblock, you can protect yourself just as well (or perhaps even a little better, since physical sunblocks don’t degrade overtime and are better at protecting you all day long) without the need for harsh chemicals.

Install UV-blocking Windowpanes

If you spend most of your day indoors, you might believe you’re safe from the sun’s vicious onslaught, but unless you’ve thought ahead and gotten the right kind of windows, you’d be wrong. One of the reasons that dermatologists recommend using sun protection every day, as long as the sun’s out, is that, even indoors, you can get enough exposure to UV rays to contribute to long-term damage, even if you don’t burn.

To help with this, special windowpanes exist that do, in fact, filter out all damaging UV radiation, so call up your local glass or home improvement store and ask about having some installed.

Stay Inside During Peak Hours

Even with Sunscreen, there are certain hours of the day where it’s recommended to—if at all possible—stay out of the sun. These hours are whenever the sun’s highest in the sky, generally between 10 AM and 4 PM (adjust for daylight savings time accordingly, as necessary). During these times, if you can help it, stay inside, preferably in a home where you’ve installed the aforementioned UV filtering windowpanes!

New Ingredient in Wine Hailed as the Fountain of Youth

Pouring red wine into two wine glasses

A new miracle ingredient found in wine which actually allows people to live longer has many lifting up their glasses to celebrate. It’s not as if some people needed a real reason to drink. However, with this new discovery made by scientist from France, some will now look to drink more wine with justification. The miracle ingredient called resveratrol actually increased the lifespan of the worms it was studied on by an astounding by 60%. The French scientists from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne believe Resveratrol infuses energy and thus extended the longevity of the worms.

Resveratrol is found in plants and is produced naturally by several of them such as the root of the Japanese knotweed. The real exciting part of the study is that the ingredient not only extended the lifespan of the worms, but made them more energetic and gave them healthier muscles and greater endurance. By way of this research and that of their own, one company named Vine Vera,  has already begun to use this secret and miracle ingredient on some of its beauty products. Vine Vera knows that Resveratrol works to rejuvenate and cleanse the body of impurities and other harmful and aging detriments.

This is largely due to the study which has found that resveratrol not only proved to be beneficial for worms, but also had surprising positive results on rats and mouse experiments. In those cases the ingredient had many optimistic cardiovascular effects as well as helping lower blood sugar and anti-inflammatory, anticancer effectuations.

Professor Auwerx, of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, said that “The research and study gives them great hope in lengthening and increasing both the adult healthiness and lifespan with simple drugs such as antibiotics”
Still, scientists and experts warn against drinking too heavily or taking long-term antibiotics to execute the results. Instead, they say the task would be to try and discover a safe drug that would be just as, or if possible, even more effective.
The professor also went on to add that with everyone always searching for the ‘Fountain of youth’ or secret to staying young forever, you can be sure that if such a drug with these results were to ever hit the market there would be many people willing and tempted to take it.

There are more and more drugs like resveratrol being studied these days. Some of these have shown promise in diminishing and preventing the ill effects of people getting old and frail. For those who are not getting younger each day, these miracle ingredients or drugs couldn’t come at a better time. Luckily, for those looking to take advantage of this miracle ingredient, they do not have to wait any more. That’s because Vine Vera has began to exclusively take advantage of this discovery in its anti-aging secret cosmetics and skin care collection which contain resveratrol.
