Amaranth-based products are recommended for the most complex skin diseases. This is due to a number of substances that neutralize pathogens, work on cell repair, strengthen local and general immunity. In the process of practice, it has been proved that treatment using amaranth-based products becomes more effective, and the result lasts a very long time. You can quickly verify this.
Components of effective effects on the skin
The composition of amaranth contains almost all the substances necessary for healthy skin. It:
• unsaturated fatty acids;
• vitamin E;
These and other beneficial substances contained in amaranth have antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiviral effects on the skin, relieve inflammation, accelerate wound healing.
Thus, unsaturated fatty acids help to reduce inflammation, help restore the epidermis, and maintain an optimal water balance of the skin. Phytosterols support the plasticity of cell membranes and have a positive effect on tissue regeneration, and they are needed to restore the body in many other diseases: hepatitis, cardiac ischemia, and others. Carotenoids perform antioxidant and immunostimulating functions, and work in all layers of the skin. Vitamin E contributes to the elimination of toxins, improves the nutrition of cells, and not only the skin. By the way, it is believed that without this vitamin it is impossible to permanently get rid of acne, age spots, stretch marks and scars.
It makes sense to focus on the role of magnesium. It helps to improve the skin from the inside, positively affects all organs and systems of the body. So, magnesium increases the immune system and the body’s ability to resist infections, normalizes blood clotting, balances the work of nerve and muscle fibers, increases stress resistance. Without this element, the normal development of bone tissue and the healthy state of the cardiovascular system are impossible. In addition, magnesium increases the level of “good” cholesterol and reduces the amount of “harmful”. By its importance in the work of the whole organism, this element can be compared with oxygen. It should be remembered that magnesium is not produced by the body, and the reserves must be replenished all the time.
Active oxygen supply is impossible without squalene. In addition, squalene promotes oxygen saturation of the body, it is a powerful antioxidant, has a strong antibacterial and protective effect, reduces inflammation, promotes wound healing and skin repair. Thanks to squalene and other substances found in amaranth, products based on this plant are used not only to treat the skin, but also to prevent many diseases.
