New Way To Young Skin

Ever since it was proven by the introduction of Retin A (Vitamin A) by Dr. Albert Kligman, at the University of Pennsylvania, that certain vitamins applied directly to the skin can treat wrinkles, sagging skin and age spots, Scientists have been experimenting with different formulations of vitamins A, C and E to determine which will have the most dramatic effect on aging skin.

 

 

Of these, vitamin C offered the best hope. "Vitamin-C is a natural antioxidant that neutralizes the free radicals produced by smoking, pollution and the sun," reports Dr. Diane Berson, Department of Dermatology, N. Y. U.

 

 

In 1992 at Duke University Medical Center, Professor of Dermatology Dr. Sheldon Pinnell, conclusively proved that L-ascorbic, at a 10% concentration, applied directly to skin, would stimulate the growth of collagen and produce astounding rejuvenating effects, and in time actually result in younger skin (not just younger "looking" skin).

 

 

The race was on by cosmetic firm Scientists to develop a serum containing a stable form of vitamin C that would be the most absorbent and produce the most dramatic effect in under a year.

The two things competing Scientists agree on is that to be effective, a topically applied vitamin C product would have to be a serum (creams can not do the job) and the concentration should be 10%. More is NOT better.

 

 

Virtually all of the vitamin C serum products that resulted combine a source of vitamin C (usually Ascorbic Acid) with other ingredients to produce what the manufacturers refer to as their new "ingredient" (such as CELLEX-C™ which is simply that company's name for their combination of L-Ascorbic Acid, Zinc Sulphate and L-tyrosine.)

 

 

Other ingredients, such as Bioflavonoids, and herbal extracts are then added to this new vitamin C ingredient. Each company feels their choice of "other ingredients" (which are necessary to stabilize and enhance absorption) make their vitamin C serum more effective then their competitor's. Life Extension, as usual, took the development of Vitamin-C serum to the next level. By waiting until the other products were on the market long enough to generate sufficient feedback with respect to results, stability, and sensitive skin reactions, we had sufficient data to adjust for what we saw as their shortcomings.

 

 

Cellu-C+ is the result. One of many things that make it better is the addition of Ascorbyl Glucoseamine™ to restrict the production of Collagenase.

The destructive enzyme Collagenase degrades the extra-cellular matrix protein collagen, thus weakening the primary support structure of the skin.

 

 

Ascorbyl Glucoseamine™ (Ascorbic acid and polyglucosamine) is 11% more potent a collagen synthesis stimulator than simple Ascorbic Acid. It's an advanced way to add the benefits of vitamin C. It increases collagen promoting activity and synthesis by 62% in human dermal fibroblasts.

The ascorbic acid portion of this complex is protected and the anti-oxidant and anti-collagenase properties in the C+ serum are greatly prolonged.


Cellu-C+ High Potency Serum

A high potency vitamin-C+ Serum designed to reverse the aging of facial and neck skin in about 8 months. Less effective serums sell for up to $135 an ounce.

Cellu-C+ Serum™ Instructions

1. The instructions for this serum are mostly common sense and applicable when applying just about any potent vitamin serum to facial skin. Be sure your face, AND hands, are clean and 'dry' before using. If your hands are still wet, after scrubbing your face, neck and upper chest clean, you will be diluting the Serum. This will result in a less effective treatment. It will take longer before you notice results and may diminish the serum's anti-oxidant properties, which help protect skin cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.

 

 

2. When and how often one uses Cellu-C+ Serum™ is a personal decision determined by economics as well as need. For most people once a day is sufficient. Those with severely damaged skin may consider two applications every other day. More than that would be wasteful and will not result in faster or better results. If you do have 'severely damaged' skin and want to attempt two applications daily (one in the morning and one at night) be very cautious. Test a small patch of skin on one cheek for one or two nights. If there is no irritation or adverse reactions, you may try a second application every other day. When applying at night, allow sufficient time for the serum to penetrate deep into the skin before going to bed or you will lose the serum that meets your bedding. If you use it in the morning, allow it to penetrate five minutes before applying ANYTHING else (sunscreen, moisturizers, etc.).

 

 

3. To Use: Place a few drops at a time on your finger tips and use your finger tips to massage the serum into your facial skin and, if needed, your neck and upper chest. If you apply the serum to the lower eyelids and 'squint' lines at the sides, you should not do so before going to bed. (To avoid even the possibility of it getting into your eyes while you sleep). Do not apply this, or any potent serum, to the upper eyelids! It makes no difference if it is day or night! Do not get it in your eyes! If any serum gets into the eyes, flush out with cool water immediately!

 

 

4. When a potent Vitamin C serum is first applied, it may sting a bit. This is good as well as normal. It is a sign the serum is working. Once it completely dries and penetrates into the skin, Cellu-C+ Serum™ will not be effected by other skin-care products you may wish to apply ( sunscreen, moisturizers, make-up etc.).

 

 

5. As with most medications: Keep In A Cool Dark Place. Do Not Refrigerate !

 

 

6. More Is NOT Better! Because a little Cellu-C+ Serum™ works so well, many people believe more will work even better. It will not! Applying more to an 'area' may irritate the skin. At the very least, it would be a waste of your money.

 

 

Results? Within six weeks, you should notice improved skin tone. A few weeks later lines around the eyes will begin to diminish. Depending on their depth, laugh lines and deep creases can take up to several months to show improvement, but they will!

Tips On Cellu-C+ Serum™

Cellu-C+ Serum™ is a very high potency vitamin-C+ Serum designed to reverse the aging of facial, neck and upper chest skin, in about 8 months of uninterrupted daily use. Similar products are on the market. This formulation is different, and we believe much more effective. The Ascorbyl Glucoseamine™ in the formula is a different form of vitamin C serum than what is found in similar products on the market. It restricts the production of Collagenase. The ascorbic acid portion of this complex is better protected, and the anti-oxidant and anti-collagenase properties are greatly prolonged and improved.

 

 

All Life Extension Products are hypoallergenic. However, that is not a guarantee there could never be an allergic reaction. It is a good idea to test a small area of skin overnight for an allergic reaction. This is especially important if there is a family history of allergies to vitamin C.

 

 

Do not expect the overnight results one obtains with a face-lift. The changes in skin tone will be noticeable in a few weeks. Changes in skin texture will be subtler. How long before they are 'noticed' depends on how deep these wrinkles are. Between eight and ten months of continuous use, seem to afford the best and most noticeable results. By then the difficult crows feet and laugh lines, in addition to the easier to erase fine lines which often diminish altogether, should be noticeably smoother.

 

 

Among the first, and most noticeable, signs of aging are the hands and elbows. Many women obtain astounding result on their face and neck, only to complain that their hands gave their age away. Applying excess serum to these areas will prove very rewarding. It is very important to use this type of product continuously, without interruption. To obtain the maximum benefit, do not skip days.

 

 

The use of 'scrubs' and/or products designed to create light 'face peels' i.e. (Retinoic Acid, Image Recovery or other Alpha Hydroxy acid products) have proven beneficial to those applying vitamin C serums. The reason is that if used after dead skin has been removed by these products (or by rubbing hard with a face cloth or scrub pad) the vitamin C serum will be absorbed into the skin much faster and more thoroughly. If you use such products, and you are encouraged to do so, allow at least eight hours between their application and that of a vitamin C serum.

 

 

It goes without saying that you should always use a good sun block, even if you do not use 'anything' else! This good advice becomes critical when using a very potent vitamin-C+ Serum. It would be foolish to use these very expensive serums to diminish the visual signs of aging, which are due primarily to sun damage, and then fail to protect your skin from further sun damage and deterioration by not wearing a sun block.


Another Exclusive From Life Extension

A Cream With Vitamins That Revitalizes Aging  Skin

The obvious consequence of the damaging effects of the sun, free radicals and pollution, on aging skin, is that the collagen fibers, which keep the skin taut, break down. New vitamin treatments in the battle against aging skin, stimulate the growth of new collagen and enhance the skin's normal function by reversing the damage not only on the surface, but also on a cellular level, according to Dr. Steven Lamm, M.D., clinical Assistant professor of medicine at New York University School of Medicine, and author of Younger At  Last: The New World of Vitality  Medicine   To quote :  

 

 

" When we're young our skin has the ability to resist and repair most of the damage caused by sun exposure and free radicals that attack the skin cell's genetic material, "  "But this damage is cumulative, and by the time we're twenty-five, skin begins to lose the battle."

 

 

Vitamin Infused Help Vitamin  A—chemically  known  as retinal, is the oldest skincare vitamin, used to smooth and soften skin, before the FDA began monitoring cosmetics in 1938. Thanks to the pioneering work of Albert M. Kligman, M.D., Ph.D., and Sergio Nacht, Ph.D., who has done collaborative research with Dr. Kligman for over 30 years, it resurfaced in 1978 as the active ingredient in the acne drug Retin A.  Dr. Kligman, is Professor Emeritus of Dermatology at the University  of  Pennsylvania School of Medicine. His research, reported  in medical journals, proved that  Retin-A could be used to treat wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots.  Dr. Kligman  and Dr. Nacht are now helping  vitamin A stage another comeback, this time as a weapon against aging skin and collagen degeneration.

 

 

Beauty companies are just now beginning to realize the value of putting low concentrations of not only vitamin A, but also vitamins  C and E (which clinical studies have shown to have great anti-aging properties) in their skincare products. However, not all vitamins are created equal.  There are now many vitamin derivatives that  are  more  stable when exposed to air or sunlight. 

 

 

There can be no doubt that vitamin infusion will help stimulate collagen growth and at least retard the aging process of skin. The only  question is Potency—what kind of vitamin and how  high (or low) the concentration. This is now the hot  debate among experts. Sheldon R. Pinnell, M.D., Professor of Dermatology at  Duke  University Medical Center in  Durham, NC, has spent much of his academic career researching L-ascorbic acid—the only form of vitamin C that , according to Dr. Pinnell, the body can effectively use.

 

 

Researchers at Life Extension have formulated a vitamin infused cream called Natural Radiance, that has the exact correct combination of vitamins and other ingredients in the correct potency, necessary to stimulate collagen and actually slow the aging process of skin.

 

Natural Radiance®

 

Natural Radiance Vitamin Revitalizing Cream contains Vitamin A,  Vitamin C,  Vitamin E,  Green Tea, Grape Seed Oil and ingredients necessary to penetrate an infusion of revitalizing vitamins to the skin at the cellular level. Natural Radiance Vitamin Revitalizing Cream works best if applied after the use of Image Recovery. The reason is to allow the Alpha Hydroxy Acids in  Image Recovery to first exfoliate dead dry and flaky skin, thus enabling the vitamins in Natural Radiance to work beneath the surface and penetrate deeper.

 

 

For the very best results, it is recommended to use Image Recovery at night, before retiring and use Natural Radiance in the morning, after thoroughly cleansing the face, and washing away the exfoliated skin.

TRANSLATION OF  FILATOV'S  EXPERIMENT 

Biostimulants Of Human Placenta  

(One day, one branch - Filatov's discovery)

Filatov, the eminent Russian Ophthalmologist, was a gardener in his spare time. Fascinated by the technique of grafting tree branches, and always interested in trying out new experiments, Filatov substituted a newly cut branch with a branch that had been cut several days earlier and had been left in a dark corner of his basement. This branch took to the grafting more easily than the other fresh cut branches.

 

Astonished by the results, Filatov continued research and began grafting human corneas successfully, using the same principal. He extended the principal to general medicine and confirmed that the process was just as valid for other human tissue.

 

 

"All living tissue, cut from its support and kept in conditions where it is difficult to survive, will create substances that will make it possible for the tissue to survive."

That is how the principal of therapeutic tissue was born.

 

 

THE SKIN EXPERIENCES A REBIRTH (The findings of Gerda Laboratories)

Development of Biostimulants found in human placenta (after childbirth) for the use of skin revival, where needed, i.e. wounds, burns, or scars. That was the Gerda researchers' objective, an idea crowned by many years of success. The numerous studies made after treatments have provided evidence of:

  • 1. A stimulating effect on cell renewal of the epidermis, thanks to the formation of new vessels and a greater oxygen consumption, thus better cellular respiration.

  • 2. Greater suppleness caused by maintaining a satisfactory degree of moisture in the skin, and good elasticity due to better quality of the supporting fibers.

  • EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF THE ACTIVITY OF PLACENTA EXTRACT ON HEALING OF WOUNDS.

     

    The study of a wound involves the specific inter-relation between two constants: The organism's ability to heal and inhibiting factors, i.e. infection.

    A healing product should counteract the inhibiting factors. The infection is the principle cause for aggravating a wound & retarding healing.

     

    The four successive phases in the healing process include

  • 1. function of the initial surface of the wound (dilation).

  • 2. Initial contraction=reduction of wound's surface.

  • 3. Slowed contraction due to inflammatory response.

  • 4. Terminal contraction associated with productive stage, i.e. Organization of tissue. End of this stage=closing of wound.

  • VASCULAR AND CELLULAR RESPONSE. Two stages

  • 1. Inflammatory response. The vascular process exudes liquid rich protein plasma, ions and leukocytes. This vascular reaction assures the elimination of dead tissue and rejects infection by drainage of the wound and biochemical action of lissome and leukocytes. This phase lasts as long as the infectious factors persist.

  • 2. Productive stage. Re-establishes dermo-epidermic structures thanks to the activity of endothermal and epithelia cells of fibroblastes. Restores a 'granulation' tissue.

  • Two- series of experiments were performed to study the effect of placenta extract on rats with slow healing wounds. It was found that placenta applied to rats with slow-healing wounds began to heal at a normal rate, or parallel to control rats that had wounds not aggravated by infection or inflammatory applications.

    The experiments provide evidence that placenta extract does restore a normal rate of healing time in cases where healing is retarded by inflammatory response.

    Human Cells And Placenta

    Placenta is a safe therapeutic agent with potent regenerating activities on all human tissue. When introduced into humans (internally), it can reinforce deteriorating cells and hence bring back or restore their youth. Professor Paul Weiss of the New York Rockefeller Institute has substantiated that cells do contain specific factors that can influence rejuvenation of other cells.

    Life Extension Placenta Extracts

    Treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcers: The parenteral administration of Placenta for the treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcers was particularly investigated in Japan, where 14 studies were achieved. These studies were carried out on about 270 subjects. The efficiency of the treatment was found in 80% of the treated patients. These results were objective by 3 double blind studies and by numerous X-rays and endoscopic observations. The authors conclude that Placenta has proved to be one of the most effective drugs for the treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcers.

     

     

    Healing of surgical wounds and varicose ulcers: Clinical studies were carried out, mainly in Switzerland and Italy, in order to show the healing activity of Placenta. These studies included more than 250 patients with surgical wounds, varicose ulcers, fistulae or abscess. All the investigators emphasize the good results obtained, particularly in these cases where, in addition to local application of placental extract, the product was administered parenterally.

     

     

    Treatment of odonto-stomatological diseases:Twenty-five clinical investigations were done in Japan; among them, 5 were double blind studies. 825 patients suffering of gingivitis, pyorrhea alveolaris, aphtous stomatitis, periodontitis or arthritis of the jaw joint had been administered intramuscularly with Placenta. In some cases of inflammatory diseases, the placental extract was successfully injected in the gum. The treatment was effective in more than 75% of the treated patients and it was concluded that Placenta is a valuable drug clinically applicable in the odonto-stomatological field.

     

     

    Pharmacological data: The wound healing effects of Placenta was proved in various experimentations including healing of experimental guinea pigs and rats, action on the healing, and epithelization and vascularization of the cornea (rabbit), protective and curative action on u.v. erethema (man), prophylactic and therapeutic activity on various experimental ulcers (rats). The healing activity was observed after both parenteral and/or suppository administration of the product. The anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic action of Placenta was objective in rats (Seyle), granuloma and freund arthritis. the anti-inflammatory effect of the product has been found more potent than that of Phenylbutazone.

     

     

    Toxicity: No general toxicity (six months), no carcinogenic or teratogenic activity was observed during long term studies in animals treated with doses ranged from 100-2,500 times the recommended therapeutic human dosage.

    Placenta Cream Of Youth™

     

    Human Placenta is a therapeutic agent with potent regenerating activities on skin. It rebuilds deteriorating cells and restores their youth.   NaPCA is the skins most important natural moisturizer. It pulls water out of dry desert air. This skin formula contains both, and ingredients to improve skin firmness and elasticity. It intensely moisturizes and revives skin and helps prevent the breakdown of Elastin, for firmer younger looking skin!

     

     

    Professor Paul Weiss at the Rockefeller Institute substantiated that cells contain specific factors that influence rejuvenation of other cells.  “The  Cell  restoring  qualities  of  Placenta  make  it  ideal  for treating aging skin. Cream of Youth with human Placenta, manufactured  according  to  the  Filatov   Method,  is such  a  product.”

     

    INGREDIENTS: Biologically active human placenta enzymes which  completely revitalize skin cells, Apricot Kernel Oil, Collagen, Elastin, Vitamin E, NaPCA, Aloe and  Emollients to build healthy young skin!

    REGENERATION  CREAM

    With RNA

    The latest developments in anti-aging skin medications and cell-regeneration has resulted in a new and improved version of Life Extension’s famous RNA CREAM.

     

    WHAT IT IS:  A  Treatment For Face And  Neck Skin

     

     

    PURPOSE: To Restore Aging  Skin  Cells  with RNA & DNA.

     

     

    PROTOCOL:  Dr.  Benjamin  Frank showed RNA improved cellular energy and the ability of the skins cells to use oxygen. The metabolism enhances the movement of young cells to the surface of the skin where they replace old cells. He proved topically-applied RNA repairs early skin cell damage. Clinical trials by Dr. S.J. Jellinek demonstrated in double blind tests, how creams containing RNA/DNA cause a lifting & tightening of the skin. Wrinkles appeared less visible in three weeks.

     

     

    These developments in anti-aging skin medications and cell-regeneration resulted in REGENERATION With RNA/DNA. The purpose is to Restore Aging Skin Cells. Replacing moisture lost to aging is a primary function. The skin's ability to hold moisture depends on its content of NaPCA, which pulls water out of dry desert air. Life Extension Chemists and Dermatologists, have improved on this ability to do so.

     

     

    It prevents lipid crystallization inhibiting trans epidermal H2O loss, resulting in moist skin. The topically applied formula, transports skin-penetrating vitamin antioxidants A, B5, C and E into the deepest skin layers, dramatically enhancing collagen synthesis & production, epidermal turnover and providing broad-spectrum protection against skin aging.

     

     

    Augmenting this reservoir of antioxidants in your skin on a daily basis assures continuous protection against the damaging effects of oxygen, UV Light, environmental pollutants, and skin aging.

     

     

    It does more than quench skin-damaging free radicals. Diminished skin micro capillary circulation from aging, deprives skin cells of vitamins needed for youthful collagen. A study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology shows direct application of these vitamins significantly protects skin cells & tissue from UVB damage and topical application of them elevates the synthesis & production of collagen.

     

     

    DIRECTIONS: Massage into face & neck skin. Allow to absorb before applying anything, or touching. Use daily. Protects against UV damage, but it is wise to add a Sun Block after, “If” you are going into sunlight!

     

    Never apply sun block first or at night. Ingredients in them (Titanium Dioxide, Octyl Salicylate & Methoxycinnamate) should not be allowed to penetrate into unprotected skin, which is why they are not “in” good face creams or treatments. But, when needed, they are good if applied after such treatments completely absorb!

    Skin  Cell  Medication.  Not  A Cosmetic

    Those ordering or renewing, MEMBERSHIPS will now receive the new improved Regeneration Cream With RNA/DNA as one of their free gifts. And, of course, those who simply order the old RNA Cream will now receive the improved version (Regeneration Cream With RNA/DNA).

    The Face  Beneath

    Image  Recovery™

    To safely  shed  older  dead  skin   allowing   the   healthier,   younger,   even-looking   skin   beneath   to   emerge.

     

    PROTOCOL: Research   at   U.C.L.A.,  Temple   and The  Universities  of   Pennsylvania  and  Ohio  confirms  AHAs  loosen  the   "cement"   binding   skin  cells,  causing  the  top  layer  of  older  dead  skin  to "shed"  allowing   the   healthier,  younger  skin   beneath   to   emerge.

     

    Eugene Van Scott, M.D. Clinical Professor of Dermatology at  Hahnemann University, working  with Ruey J. Yu, Ph.D.,  conducted  the  first  studies  on  Alpha Hydroxy Acids  and  found    that    they:   speed-up   exfoliation,   improve   skin   texture  and tone,   and   reduce   skin  discoloration   and   age   spots."

     

    Not  all  Alpha Hydroxy  Acids  are  equal; and   not   all  products  have    a  sufficient  amount  to  noticeably   reduce    the   signs   of   aging.   Most   are   "cosmetics"  with   AHAs  added  to  the ingredients  so  advertisers  can  state  how  AHAs  peel  away   old   skin,  revealing  the   new  fresh   younger   skin   beneath.

     

    The   ads   fail   to   mention  the  amount   of   AHA  is  hardly   enough   to  produce   noticeable   "Peeling"   (but  it’s  good    for    advertising).

     

    A   true   AHA  product  should  actually  shed  the  old  dead  skin  and  recover  the  image  of   youth   that   lies  beneath.

     

    Until  now   there  was   "Dead  Skin"  care.  It  was  like  treating  old  dry  leaves that  do  not  hold  moisture.  Now  we  uncover  a "New Leaf".

     

    DIRECTIONS: Wash face and neck thoroughly. Pat and allow your skin to completely dry. Only apply at night, or if staying indoors! Thoroughly, massage Image Recovery into facial and neck skin. Allow to completely absorb before applying anything, or touching. If you must to go out into direct sunlight, always add a Sun Block after Image Recovery completely absorbs and dries.

    Never apply sun block first or at night. Ingredients in them (like Titanium Dioxide, Octyl Salicylate & Methoxycinnamate) should never be allowed to penetrate into unprotected skin, which is why such ingredients are not “in” any good face cream or treatment. But, when needed, Sun Blocks and/or sunscreens are very valuable. They should always be applied after other creams and treatments completely absorb!

     

     

    It is wise to avoid the Sun as much as possible, but if you must go into direct sunlight, use a 30 to 45 SPF UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum protection.

    Nourishing Skin From Within

    For years people dreamed about a pill they would take and get younger skin. Actually, such dreams were based on Scientific fact, due to the skins unique nutritional requirements. Scientists have known for years that the skin must be nourished from within, but our diets do not contain the nutrients necessary for youthful skin, the most important being a compound "Marine Polysaccharide Fractions; which British Surgeon, Dr. Brian Newman states: "seems to have a specific action in the gut, preventing the breakdown of essential proteins in the diet and allowing their absorption in a state more easily used by the skin".

     

    Life Extension Scientists have developed a "Skin Formula" based on scientific research that confirms the hypothesis that certain nutrients, unique to rejuvenation of the skin, taken internally, improve the appearance, texture, and elasticity; as well as reduce wrinkling and sagging of skin. And do so dramatically.

     

    Scientists became interested in such a formula after examining the wound healing capabilities of the ingredients, because the same properties foster smooth healthy younger skin. The formula works by stimulating RNA and building elastin and collagen, which give skin its shape and form and keep it from wrinkling and sagging. Dr. Newman became convinced of the effectiveness of such a formula after reviewing extensive photographic analysis of women using similar formulations.

     

    Dr. Allen Lassus (Department of Dermatology, University of Helsinki) reports on subjects age 50 plus using a similar formula where 50% of the women tested had no signs of winkles after daily use. He states: "Skin thickness and skin elasticity increased to a level that corresponded to age groups of 30 to 40 years."

     

    The "Skin Formula" was tested for two years before we agreed to offer it to our members. Reports on its effectiveness have been so dramatic, that we named it B4, because it restores skin to the condition it was before it was deprived of nutrition and abused. Additionally, reports of skin blotches vanishing, eye lashes and brows darkening, bags under the eyes rescinding, and stronger more flexible nails, abound.

    About Balding

    In Finland Dr. Illona Schreck-Purola, who had been searching for a skin cancer cure came upon a curious discovery. In testing polysorbate on mice for her research, she saw hair grow back on bald mice. The Professor of Medicine and Surgery, has since been interviewed worldwide about her accidental discovery of the formula that may prove to be an answer to millions of bald and balding men and women.

     

    The University of Helsinki Department of Pathology has since tested hundreds of bald subjects in three countries. It reported that loss of hair is reduced and new hair growth is visible within the first 90 days of treatment. Following are Dr. Schreck-Purola's answers to questions about her success rate in the re-growth of new hair:

     

    Q. What makes the Formula work?

    A. Mostly it's the polysorbate and some other ingredients.

     

    Q. Polysorbate you accidentally stumbled onto when you were doing cancer research?

    A. Yes, it causes cell division, removes cholesterol from cells so they divide.

     

    Q. Cholesterol buildup on the scalp causes baldness?

    A. Cholesterol is the grounds for androgen male hormones. Its needed in cell membranes, but when there is too much, it blocks and stops the cells from dividing. The formula cleans and loosens the tissue from around the follicles, so the cells divide.

     

    Q. Is polysorbate safe to use ?

    A. Absolutely safe.

     

    Of the many studies conducted in various parts of Europe the most impressive was Dr. Purola`s six year study which involved 273 men and 47 women. In about three weeks after beginning treatment, hair loss was stopped and new growth appeared in 80% of those participating in the hair treatment program. In some cases, it took ten months for new growth to appear. Needless to say Schreck-Purola has published these findings in major medical journals so that the worldwide medical community can inform the general public.

     

    "This therapy represents a stunning advance in our ability to treat and reverse baldness," says Dr. Illona Schreck-Purola. "We have found far and away the best compound for treating male-pattern baldness and we have proven it scientifically."

     

    When asked about specific directions for use, Dr. Schreck advised those concerned about hair growth "to begin treatments as early as possible, especially if there is a history of hair loss". The Formula should be applied directly to the scalp where it flushes cholesterol from hair follicles and cells allowing them to divide properly, which leads to hair growth."

     

    The FDA position is: "There is a lack of adequate data to establish general recognition of the safety and effectiveness of these or any other ingredients intended for OTC external use as a hair grower or for hair loss prevention."

     

    The Helsinki Hair Follicle Treatment With Minoxidil

     

    Although approved by the FDA for other uses, the intended use for the active ingredient in what Life Extension has offered since 1975 as the Helsinki Combination Formula Consisting of The Helsinki Cleanser and the Helsinki Treatment  was not to grow hair no such claims had been made.

     

    All that was said at first was that the Helsinki Cleanser and Treatment, working together, cleaned out the hair follicles and got rid of the harmful deposits that prevent hair growth. All that has changed. New we can and no report that it does indeed stop the balding process and re-grow hair.

     

    Life Extension Researchers have found that the Formula is even more effective when used with Minoxidil. They then ran human trials with male volunteers who tested the Helsinki Treatment with the addition of Minoxidil. It was found that Minoxidil, when added to the Helsinki Treatment enhanced its performance by over 60%.

     

    Next they tested several different formulations of the Helsinki Treatment. The result was that the formulation  with added Minoxidil, Niacin, and Biotin produced the best results. Thus, the New Enhanced Helsinki Hair Follicle Treatment with Minoxidil.

     

    Successful and permanent growth of hair must be internally sustained! After one is successful in unclogging the hair follicles it is strongly recommended (and over 90% of the "success" stories confirm) that the probability of recouping a full head of healthy hair is greatly enhanced with continuous use of the Helsinki Hair Follicle Treatment With Minoxidil and the use of Protein with Cysteine that is taken internally in conjunction with the Helsinki Hair Follicle Treatment With Minoxidil.

     

    AND, now there is a new addition to the arsenal of weapons one can use to help ensure the Successful and permanent growth. Those interested in hair growth should also consider Life Extension’s New Testosterone Builder and/or Life Extension’s New Advanced Prostate Formula, because both of these contain Beta-Sistosterol. The reason for this is as follows:

     

    The newest research attributes almost all hair loss to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) buildup on the scalp and hair follicles. Once DHT has destroyed a hair follicle, and the hair follicle falls out, that hair can never re-grow.

    Beta-Sistosterol - Blocks the formation of DHT - Blocks DHT from the androgen receptors sites found on the hair follicles – and also promotes healthy prostrate function.

     

    RESEARCH: 5-Alpha-Reductase (5AR) is an enzyme in the body which converts the hormone testosterone into Di Hydro Testosterone  or (DHT) . DHT is important developmentally early in a man's life. However, it is widely believed to precipitate the most common variety of hair loss. In pattern hair loss, DHT triggers a chain of events that result in a negative growth cycle of hairs within susceptible hair follicles. The affected hair follicles continue in this negative progression until they no longer produce visible hair.

    DHT binds (or locks into) to specific points on the hair follicle known as androgen receptor sites. The DHT then causes the follicles to shrink.

    It is this (locking) of DHT inside the hair follicles and roots that is one of the primary causes of male and female pattern hair loss. It results in smaller, thinner, weaker, virtually invisible hairs (lighter in color). Eventually the hair follicles and roots may die and the hair falls out!

    Research has also shown that DHT is found at the base of the hair shaft, or at its roots.  There it creates a wax-like substance around the roots and thus constricts the blood supply to them.

    Proper nutrition is critical in order to maintain strong, healthy hairs. A restricted blood supply to the hair roots (dermal papilla) prevents necessary proteins, vitamins and minerals from bringing nourishment needed to sustain life in those hairs.

     

    Research has shown that in susceptible individuals, DHT contributes to the miniaturization of the hair follicles, weakening of the hairs themselves in those follicles, a shortening of the hair growth phase and a lengthening of the hair resting phase. As the growing phase becomes shorter, the quality of the hair degenerates, so the hairs becomes thinner, weaker and lighter in color. At the same time, there is more frequent fall out of those smaller and weaker hairs. This results in a gradual thinning of the hair on the affected areas of the scalp - hence, baldness may set in at those places.

    Replacing the Hair's Pigment

    We all know that melanin pigment is the natural coloring factor in hair; and that it is identical in all colors of hair. The only difference between chestnut brown and platinum blond hair is the amount of melanin. With aging this amount of melanin decreases. Complete absence of it results in no color or "white" hair.

     

    Until recently, the only alternative for people who didn't like the gray look was artificial coloring which has many drawbacks and never really gives you back your own natural color; which is not one color but different shades and tones. However, it is now possible to naturally reverse the graying process by actually replacing lost melanin with a similar acting pigment. This is accomplished by a product called PG 168, formulated by Richard Dykast, Ph.D., which works with the hair's natural chemistry combining with protein inside the hair shaft to gradually replace lost pigment. The result is one's original natural color back.

     

    In the same manner that natural hair color is determined by the amount of melanin in the hair shaft, one can now restore his or her natural hair color by simply controlling the amount of PG 168. At first it is applied daily as with any good hair grooming product (which, incidentally it also doubles as). Within two or three weeks (depending on the darkness of one's natural color) most people will have restored their specific degree of pigment. Thereafter they use the product just once or twice a week for natural grooming and to maintain the pigment level.

     

    We asked some questions:

     

    Q. How soon until you see results?

     

    A. Depending on the amount of gray, and its "location" in about 1 week you'll start to notice a change. Thereafter the hair will not only start looking but also feeling healthier and more vital.

     

     

    Q. What amount of PG 168 is used daily ?

     

    A. It depends on the length and thickness of the hair. About 1/8 oz. for short hair and 1/4 oz. for very long hair. Simply dampen the hair as if using any good hair grooming product.

     

     

    Q. Should one change their grooming habits?

     

    A. No. However, frequent shampooing during the initial daily application period will lengthen the time it takes to notice a significant pigment increase. It is recommended not to use other products during this period because they may leave a film and slow the process.

     

     

    Q. Any difference in results or method of application between men and women?

     

    A. No, except longer hair will require more product.

    Life Extension ™ PG-168

    Thousands of individuals are already using PG 168 which has been tested extensively for extended periods without any side effects. It is in no way harmful to the skin and is not a dye or artificial coloring so it has the added advantage of not requiring gloves or other items. It absolutely works; 100% of the time.

    PG-168 INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Always shake well before using.

     

    2. Always apply to dry clean hair. When the instructions on the bottle say: "dampen hair" it means that you are to dampen your clean dry hair with PG-168.

     

    3. On the first day. Shampoo your hair well, let it dry completely; then apply PG-168. During this period (the first 4 to 5 weeks) you should use the product every day, and only shampoo once or twice a week.

     

    4. Coarse hairs will not absorb PG-168 as fast as fine hair. These coarse hairs will take longer to reach their natural color. You can apply more PG-168 to these areas. Men have coarse hair around the temples.

    PG-168 is not a dye or coloring, so it is not thick. It works with the hairs natural chemistry combining with protein inside the hair shaft to gradually replace lost pigment. It works best if used as any good hair grooming product; and works faster when hair is exposed to natural sunlight.

     

    The amount of times per week you should apply PG-168 (after you have obtained back your natural hair pigmentation) depends on how dark your natural hair is. People with black hair would probably find it best to apply it as a hair grooming product every day. Those of us with lighter hair may find ourselves applying it only a couple of times a week, to maintain our natural hair pigmentation.

    Protein with Cysteine For Hair & Nails

    Protein with Cysteine (as L-Cysteine) is designed and formulated by Life Extension to internally enhance the body’s ability to grow and sustain very strong hair and extraordinarily strong nails.

    Its purpose is to produce healthy hair and strong nails and do nothing else! And it does this exceedingly well!

    It replaces the L-Cysteine and protein the body looses with age, thereby enabling it to once again, grow thick, healthy hair and very strong nails.

    It includes every nutrient the body needs specifically for hair and nails. Some of these nutrients are often hyped and sold alone as “hair growing nutrients”. But individually, the actual benefit they can provide to hair is very limited.

    RESEARCH: Hair and nails, which are basically protein, require  protein for growth and body. Cysteine gives hair its structure, growth and thickness. It is a controlling factor in hair growth!

    In some cases the amount of hair has doubled with daily use of Protein with Cysteine. And Some Researchers reported finger and toenails grew strong enough to break nail clippers!

    Besides its role in the structure of hair and nails, the potent antioxidant properties of Cysteine protect hair follicles from free radical damage and cross-linking, which severely curtail hair growth.

    Except for eggs, which contain about ¼ gram each, L-Cysteine is gravely lacking in most diets.  

    Other Benefits: Besides a controlling factor in hair growth, L-Cysteine dramatically reduces the harm caused by smoking and alcohol  (which is why it’s in the Detoxification Formula). It increases the life span of animals, blocks hypoglycemia & stimulates the immune system.

     

    Protein with Cysteine should be taken with extra Vitamin C. If you are not taking a well balanced multi-vitamin formula, take one 50 Mg. tablet of vitamin C with each two tablets of Protein with Cysteine. If you are taking a complete well-balanced multi-vitamin formula like “The Life Extension Formula” there is no need to take extra vitamin C.

    Most people report dramatic improvement in growth and thickness of hair and nails by taking 2 tablets daily, with meals.
