Last month I launched a new High Vibeology product that I'm very proud of: The I am glowing. It's a powerful anti-aging beauty & longevity nutricosmetics blend made from 7 adaptogenic mushrooms: Tremella, Reishi, Shiitake, Chaga, Cordyceps, Maitake and Lion's Mane.
Nutricosmetics are supplements that nourish and protect your skin from within.
These mushrooms are known for their powerful effect on the skin and the immune system.
They have deeply moisturizing, protective, anti-aging, cell renewing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The blend is rich in beta-glucans, antioxidants, minerals and vitamin D: an important vitamin that many people are deficient in, especially in our climate.
All mushrooms are of 100% fruit body and from organic agriculture. What you get is pure and natural, without any additives, fillers, preservatives and other chemicals. And you notice that.
I am glowing: adaptogens for your skin
Tremella is deeply hydrating and contains strong moisture-binding properties of 500 times her own weight.
Cosmetics with 0.05% of Tremella Polysaccharides have better moisture retention capacity than with 0.02% hyaluronic acid added. She helps improve elasticity and is a rich source of collagen and antioxidants.
Reishi contains beta-glucans which help to draw moisture to the skin, restore moisture loss and keep the skin hydrated. This helps to refine wrinkles and lines.
Reishi is rich in antioxidants which support the skin's renewal process, help prevent premature aging and protect against UV damage.
In addition, it helps to restore and strengthen the ceramides in the skin's moisture barrier.
Reishi also inhibits the melanin-producing enzyme tyrosinase, which causes skin pigmentation.
Shiitake protects the elastin in the skin, keeping it supple and elastic for longer.
It is rich in L-ergothioneine, a longevity vitamin that protects the DNA.
In addition, Shiitake contains the antibacterial kojic acid that helps to smooth skintone and protects against hyperpigmentation.
Maitake moisturizes and restores moisture loss.
It contains the most effective source of beta-glucans of all mushrooms. In addition, it strengthens the protective layer of the skin and protects the skin against external stress.
Chaga is rich in antioxidants that help protect against free radicals. They help reduce wrinkles, discoloration and acne. Chaga contains 3 times more antioxidants than Açaí berries. This in combination with melanin and zinc protects the skin against damage caused by UV radiation.
The Betulinic acid in Chaga helps in the repair and renewal of skin cells.
Chaga contains some of the highest amounts of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). Deficiencies that arise as we age, cause wrinkles and skin discoloration.
Lion's Mane mushroom
Lion's Mane contains the nerve growth factor (NGF) that helps accelerate the healing of wounds.
It has an anti-aging effect thanks to the antioxidants and polysaccharides that enhance the antioxidant enzyme activities and increase the collagen content.
Cordyceps has anti-aging, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to stimulate skin cells to repair themselves.
It contains Mannitol, a sugar alcohol that helps moisturize and condition the skin and Polysaccharides that are essential for the skin's renewal process.
These help strengthen the skin's protective barrier that keeps the skin hydrated, among other things.
The peptides, essential amino acids and proteins help keep the skin firm, supple and hydrated.
Due to their special adaptogenic properties, the mushrooms help to keep your body and mind in balance. They do this by increasing the resistance to various stressors, helping you relax, sleep better and improve mental clarity.
In doing so, they have a direct effect on our hormone and nervous system.
It is known that long-term stress is very unhealthy, but it also speeds up the aging process considerably.
A balanced lifestyle with as little stress as possible is essential for healthy, beautiful skin.
Besides being fantastic for your skin, these adaptogens have a lot more to offer.
The mushrooms in this blend have been used for centuries to increase the immune system in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda and Japanese herbal medicine, among others.
Tremella is used as a longevity tonic and to support the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain and stomach.
Reishi is considered an elixir of immortality and is used to promote restful sleep and keep the body in homeostasis.
Shiitake is used to support the liver, strengthen vitality, prevent premature aging and promote blood circulation.
Chaga is known for its powerful effect on the immune system and is also used to aid digestion and relieve stress.
Cordyceps increases energy levels and stamina. It helps reduce fatigue and stress and accelerates recovery after physical activity.
Maitake is used to boost the immune system, helps the body detox and accelerates the repair of tissue damage.
Lion’s Mane supports brain health, stimulates memory and concentration and promotes the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF).
