Nutrients to help with aging

The body is made out of cells, and these cells divide or die.  If a cell doesn’t die or divide the cell will be called a senescent cell.  The more senescent cells you have the faster you will age.   These cells produce harmful, pro-inflammatory chemicals that also increase the ageing process.  Aging cells cause chronic inflammation which can cause age-related disease.

Researchers have discovered that 2 natural compounds can help to remove these senescent cells: 

  • Quercetin is a flavanol that is found in many fruit and vegetables (onions, green tea, apples and berries)
  • Tocotrienols which is a compound in vitamin E and can be find in Rice Bran oil.

Future anti-aging products from Buttercup Skincare Products will contain Rice Bran oil and herbs that contains Quercetin. 

These nutrients can promote cell death in senescence cells and rejuvenate older cells. These nutrients also reduce inflammation and therefore slow down the ageing process. 

Rice Bran oil contains high percentage of omega 6 fatty acids, Vitamin B and Vitamin E.   These nutrients are great to hydrate and protect the skin and provide a natural glow while all helping to decrease the aging process.
