As we age, our skin becomes a reflection of our overall health. But the signs of aging are not simply a result of time passing. There are various factors at play, many of which we can actually influence.
One such factor is the presence of senescent cells, which contribute to both intrinsic and extrinsic aging. These damaged cells stop dividing and cannot repair themselves, but they don't die either. Instead, they release harmful aging factors that affect the health of your skin and tissues.
Over time, the accumulation of senescent cells not only leads to aging but also increases the risk of age-related diseases. Senescence can be induced prematurely as a consequence of direct and persistent DNA damage, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction and chemotherapy.
Senescent cells can wreak havoc on your skin, causing wrinkles, age spots, reduced collagen production, and even the growth of cancer cells. That's where GHK-Cu can make a difference.
GHK-Cu, also known as Copper Peptides, has been scientifically proven to fight aging skin and prevent the formation of senescent cells. This powerful peptide combines small amino chains with blue copper to promote the skin's natural ability to restore itself. This powerful peptide combines small amino chains with blue copper to promote the skin's natural ability to restore itself.
Here’s how GHK-Cu accomplishes this:
Unleashing Powerful Antioxidant Activity: The skin is constantly exposed to damaging UV radiation, which produces harmful free radicals known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). While the skin contains antioxidants to neutralize these free radicals, excessive sun exposure can overwhelm its defense system, leading to oxidative stress and senescence. GHK-Cu steps in by blocking reactive carbon species, detoxifying toxic lipid peroxidation products, and protecting keratinocytes from lethal UVB radiation.
Excessive sun exposure can overwhelm our skin’s defense system, leading to oxidative stress and senescence. UVA rays are more penetrating and affect cells deeper indirectly damaging DNA and causing wrinkles. UVB rays damage the outermost layer of the skin directly damaging DNA and they cause the most skin cancers. GHK-Cu not only protects keratinocytes from lethal UVB radiation, GHK-Cu can activate genes for DNA repair.
Restoring Vitality to Skin Fibroblasts: Fibroblasts play a crucial role in skin regeneration, but their activity and function decline with age, resulting in the loss of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. GHK-Cu has been proven to rejuvenate fibroblasts, restoring their normal function even after exposure to radioactive treatment.
Activating Genes for DNA Repair: Recent research has shown that changes in gene activity can be reversed with the help of natural molecules. GHK-Cu has the incredible ability to modulate gene expression, stimulating the activity of DNA repair genes and resetting them to a healthier state. This ensures that the skin can effectively repair itself from the damages caused by metabolic activities and environmental factors.
Removing Damaged Proteins: GHK-Cu activates and strengthens the protective Ubiquitin/Proteasome System, which is responsible for eliminating damaged proteins from cells. This crucial system ensures that cells function properly and aids in repairing DNA damage caused by exposure to harmful Ultraviolet radiation. Research has demonstrated that activation of Proteasome slows down aging.
Preserving Stem Cells and Proliferation Capacity: GHK-Cu maintains the survival and proliferation of stem cells in the basal epidermis by regulating integrins and p63 proteins. These proteins connect skin cells to the underlying structures, promoting the longevity and vitality of the skin.
With GHK-Cu, you can fight aging skin and prevent the detrimental effects of senescent cells. This revolutionary peptide has been thoroughly researched and established as a powerful solution for rejuvenating your skin. By incorporating Vitali's high-quality formulas with GHK-Cu (Copper Peptides) into your skincare routine, you can combat the detrimental effects of senescent cells and rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.
