Benefits by ingredients
Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and prevents cellular damage. It also functions to restore the levels of vitamin C and E. Alpha-lipoic acid is used for the treatment of diabetes, chronic fatigue, HIV, cancer, neurodegeneration, Lyme disease, and glaucoma (10).
Dimethylaminoethanol is an organic compound with anti-ageing benefits. Dimethylaminoethanol helps to firm and tighten the skin, which can give skin a more defined and youthful appearance.
Polyphenols are natural phytochemical compounds with beneficial antioxidant effects. The most common phenol found in olive oil is oleocanthal that helps to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease (7), and control metastatic breast and prostate cancers (11). Furthermore, oleocanthal has strong anti-inflammatory activity that is similar to ibuprofen (12).
Phytosterols are plant sterols that are similar to cholesterol. A diet rich in phytosterols reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, since it reduces the absorption of cholesterol.
Vitamin E has a high content of antioxidants and is beneficial in treating and preventing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, respiratory infections, chronic fatigue, memory loss, and premenstrual discomfort. In addition, vitamin E is very powerful in improving the condition of your skin by lightening stretch marks, boosting collagen production, and preventing wrinkles.
Vitamin K plays a major role in blood clotting and is used to prevent blood thinning. It can also be applied to the skin to remove scars, stretch marks, and spider veins.
