Why Anti-Oxidant?

OK.. this is a super mega major late entry!! I promised to you I’ll write about the extra skin care regime I’m consuming orally.. it’s this one!!

Manja tak? Hahahha…

I’ve been taking this supplement for almost 6 month now.. and I like it. I was just a consumer until the supplier find out about it and put my face on the advertisement!! Hahah..

First of all, what is anti-oxidant?

Anti-oxidant is a natural compound in our food that helps neutralises free-radicals in our body.

*nerd mode on*

Free radicals are the “bad guy” and anti-oxidants are the “good guy”. A free radical is an atom with at least one unpaired electron in our body cell. Since it has lost an electron, it needs to stabilise itself by ‘stealing’ an electron from a nearby molecule.

Where does free-radicals come from?

Easy.. I found this from the internet..

Basicly, it’s all around us, in our environment!!

Now is the part where you should ask me.. “Is that my problem?”

My answer is “Yes, it is our problem!!” Haha.. This is because whatever the free radical touches and ‘steal’ the electron (please refer to the paragraph above!!), it will damage it!! (because one of the electron is stolen, remember?)

As an example, if the free radical touches the DNA, it can cause mutation that can lead to many diseases like cancer…

Do you get me?? It’s like a chain reaction, the more things free radical touches (and steal the electron!), the more cells will get damage.. until, it binds to… ANTIOXIDANT!!!

Taddaaaaaa…. Get it?!!

Thats why antioxidant is important!!

So basically, anti-oxidant is important as an anti-aging, anti-inflammatories, and it helps to boost the immune system.

To all the vain pots (and that includes me..) you must be wondering.. how does it helps with the skin, right? Easy, if you have healthy skin cells, you will have much less problems with pigmentations (hence the whitening effect and indirectly anti-oxidant will function as a sunblock!), fine lines and acne.

Get it??

Haaaaa.. that’s why we, mere mortals need anti-oxidant!

So, why I choose this oral anti-oxidant supplement?

It’s mainly because of the quality. It’s pre-packed into small sachets. If your anti-oxidant is in a jar, it will get destroys over time every time you open the jar. (Remember the free radicals in our environment?) So, pre-packed is to ensure the quality of the anti-oxidant is maintained!

Besides, it claims that it has so much anti-oxidant with super fruits and what not.. They just sounds good to me!! Haha…

and this one whole box will last me for 2 months :)

After 6 months of using it, I noticed my energy level is better.. and that means I needed less coffee everyday to keep me energised all day. Less frequent attack with flu symptoms, I believe it does help to build up the immune system as well, even if I fall sick, I recovered quite fast without antibiotics and my skin is less dry in general.

There’s a long list of the benefits of this product that comes with it if you bought this, and you will see, basically what it does is it helps to regulate the cells (whatever cells in our body) to function better.

Bear in mind, all anti-oxidant supplements must be taken continuously.. that is because the free radicals are also continuously produced in our body!! *duhh..*

OK, enough of this long lecture. Thank you for attending my science class today!!

  1. Doctor, please share with us readers your skincare regime too!
    I want a glowing flawless skin like you but idk which products are recommended.
    Thank you doc! May Allah bless you and your family!

    Xoxo

  2. Dr halina,saya juga minum Secret skin white,and it helps me a lot,my period pain is gone..sgt gembira Dan bahagia,thanks to you because u write it in the blog about this anti oxidant. I luv u doc..

  3. Tq doc. It’s like a physics + bio lecture. But u make it sounds easy to understand. Aha. If pregnant is it safe to consume?

    • from my professional opinion, i strongly suggest you defer any supplement / medications during first trimester of pregnancy unless indication / ordered by your gynae..

  4. Sy start minum SSW masa dr mula2 tulis pasal ni di blog even x detail. Reason nk try sebb dia bg energy bukan semata2 untuk kecantikan kulit saja. Now dh kotak ke 3. Preggy woman bole consume. Satu lg sebb reasonable price RM170 ada 60 sachet n last fr 2 months so per month x sampi 100. Mampu milik!!!!

  5. Doc… i confuse la…Takut la nk minum benda2 mcm ni..Takut affect buah pinggang or ade side effect lain…is it really safe? Kenapa doc x consume je natural food yg contain antioxidants? Kenapa doc sgt konfiden utk mkn supplements mcm ni? I teringin jugak nk consume supplements mcm ni tp dlu my doc ade ckp.semua supplements ni xberguna sbb byk akn hilang dlm urine and byk side effect. Dia ckp lg bagus mcm natural food. Tp lg prefer amik supplements je sebnanye. So nk tahu la pendapat doc…why doc konfiden utk amik supplements ni semua???

    • natural fruits makan jugak.. tp tak larat lar nak makan 4kg of blueberries hari2 to get enough anti-oxidant supply..

  6. Salam Dr, may I ask if it is safe for G6PD Deficient to consume this? I know, I tried to ask suppliers but they all seem clueless. I really want to make myself healthy but like you said, tak larat jugak nak consume natural products banyak2 kan…thanks in advance…

  7. Salam Doc. I have been a loyal follower to your informative blog. I found out about the kawai collagen and another product called Zofea beauty, which is supplied by the same company (if I’m not mistaken). Zofea beauty is a so-called natural breast enhancement product. I have been in dilemma in so many years since I was a late bloomer and I still am, I am a flat chested lady, haha, and I am getting married in few months’ time. So, is it safe if I consume this product, containing rich in pueraria mirifica…? I am worried about the adverse effects, concerning if the herbs may mimic estrogen which is one of the risk factors for breast cancer…. I highly appreciate if u can answer since u are in medical line, who else would people like us (the community) depend on if it’s not the doctors. If u can’t answer, can u suggest me any website or blogs for reliable reference…?

    • I read about that product too but I’m a bit worried abt the oestrogen content. There’s no study about the level of oestrogen content in that supplement. I chose not to take it..

  8. Salam Dr Halina.thanks so much for writing this.honestly i’ve been waiting for this entry for quite sometime.hihi.as u said, super mega late entry? :P btw, i started consume Secret Skin White Kawaii Collagen in March..decided to consume it because of u! :) n because of the great results, I decided to become an agent..long story short, for those who are interested to get thia superb supplement, feel free to sms/whatsapp me at 0134742456..also visit my blog http://nadia-liyana.blogspot.com for testimonials..TQ!!

  9. Hahahahaha so many questions that they boggle my mind. Jenuh nak jwb tu doc. Still, this is a great post and I am tempted to try. It is true the free radical are as bad as cancer. They gonna drag our skin down. Better do something before da haggard.hehehe. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Yup yup, very well said and well explained tentang anti-oxidant and free radical. Terima kasik Dr! :-) Selain collagen SSW ni, Antara natural source yang mengandungi natural anti-oxidant ialah extract biji anggur. dan kalau tak larat nak makan anggur banyak2 sekali dengan biji2 dia, and also kalau tak larat nak bancuh powder mcm SSW ni, boleh try Vita-E Complex dari Shaklee… Mudah sangat, telan je sebab ia berbentuk kapsul.. bonus for anti-penuaan dan good skincare supplements.. ini sekadar cadangan dan pilihan… terima kasih! :-)

  15. thanks for sharing doc =) Just wanna share 3 Antioksidan Terbaek dari Shaklee :
    Vitamin A, Vitamin E dan Vitamin C yang tidak boleh dihasilkan oleh badan dan perlu diambil daripada diet harian

  16. Mohon follow. That’s was a very good explanation in a very simple way. I’ve been consuming the same supplement for 2 months now. New scars are gradually fading. Even if I did not really follow the ‘pantang’. Which is we have to give up caffeine to make it work at its best. I’ve tried to give up caffeine cold-turkey, seriously not even a single bar of chocolate however it only last for one month. I just realize it was a bad way to stop caffeine. Haha. Caffeine is bad. Really. Owh, how much I regret to be a fan of nescafe during my teenlife…

  17. May I add.. TQ. Scars fade bcoz the body is in constant renewal. The scars that does not go away, that’s bcoz that renewal process is disrupted. & correct me if I’m wrong but I think youthfulness has something to do with the protein turn-over in our body, which regenerates & replaces our body cells (high renewal = youth, slow renewal = aging). Eventually as we grow older, the regeneration slows down – I don’t know if we can stop that. But maybe we can take care of our body so that it maintains in good shape, so the body won’t have so much to repair.

    The field is called “regenerative medicine”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vFQJpxabQ4#t=340
    Hope I get it right!

  18. Also, many people praise doctors for curing them. But really, I think it’s mostly that regeneration – which repairs damaged cells to good healthy cells – that heals your body. So thank Allah SWT first! Doctors can only treat, but Allah SWT cures. I LOVE regenerative medicine, I think it’s almost magical.

  19. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It will always be interesting to read through content
    from other authors and practice something from their websites.
