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.
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!!
