Anti aging effects of acai oil

  1. 1. The Anti-Aging Effects of Acai Oil Written By: Margaret A. Willis - The latest and one of the most popular ingredients being used in beauty products is Acai Oil. It is nature’s most powerful anti-oxidant that is extracted from Acai Berries grown in the rich and biologically diverse Amazon Rainforest. To better understand the seemingly magical effects of Acai oil in the body, you should know what anti-oxidants are and their role in your body’s defense mechanisms. Antioxidants are substances that have the power to counteract the damage caused by oxidation in the tissues of the body. Although oxidation is a normal physiological process, antioxidants act by scavenging free radicals which are by- products of the process. It is these free radicals that can wreak damage on the body cells thus hastening the aging process and paving the way for the development of serious health problems including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants support and boost the body’s immune system thereby protecting the body from diseases and toxins that one can get from food and the environment. Antioxidants also help the body withstand stress factors that increases the body’s synthesis of free radicals and the oxidation of cells which is considered as one of the main culprits in skin aging. Acai Oil: Its Components and Beneficial Effects Acai Oil is a rich source of naturally powerful antioxidants. These anti-oxidants are potent anti-aging factors that help the body hold off and eliminate the tell-tale signs of the aging process. Numerous scientific studies have been done to determine what makes Acai Oil nature’s best gift for maintaining beautiful, young-looking skin. They were able to establish amazing amounts of essential fatty acids (Omega-6 and Omega-9), Vitamins B1, B2, B3, C, and E, Phytosterols, and minerals (Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Iron).

  2. 2. • Phytosterols strengthen the fragile superficial layers of the skin and protect it from wear and tear. These substances work at the cellular level by promoting cell membrane stability and skin regeneration. • Omega 9 and Omega 6 are both essential fatty acids that support the anti- aging process by increasing the skin’s ability to trap in moisture thus preserving the skin’s elasticity and appearance. • Vitamin C present in Acai Oil is present in a stable form. It is a rare form of Vitamin C that can hardly be found in nature. Aside from its important role in boosting the body’s immune system, it also possesses rejuvenating and revitalizing properties by enhancing cell regeneration. • Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that promotes regeneration of body tissues by counteracting the harmful effects of free radicals. • Anthocyanins are pigments found in plants that serve to protect the skin from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet rays can trigger the release of free radicals that hastens aging and appearance of wrinkles. Unlike other natural plant oils used in beauty products, Acai oil can be stored for longer periods of time even though it has undergone processing. Thus, you can be assured that its potency and antioxidant levels will not diminish with time. It is also an excellent ingredient for anti-aging products formulated for sensitive skin. The antioxidants present in Acai Oil are indeed powerful ingredients whose combined forces can wage a winning war against the dreaded signs of aging. Nobody said that the fight against the dreaded signs of aging is easy. However, with Acai oil, you get the vitamins and minerals that can counter free radicals which hasten aging, and at the same time get the much needed protection from certain diseases.
