How to Increase the Antioxidant Capacity of Our Cells and Improve Our Skin

  • The protection of telomeres
  • The reduction of pro-inflammatory toxins
  • Increasing the antioxidant capacity of our cells
  • The contribution of fatty acids necessary to keep our skin healthy.


Telomeres have been identified as the secret or key that scientists investigate and study to understand aging. They are, so to speak, the protective shields of the DNA of our cells.

In simple words, telomeres can tell us how healthy the cells that make up our body are. The longer the telomere, the healthier or younger the cell. Telomeres can also tell us about the genetic health of our cells. As people age, telomeres naturally break down and become shorter in the process.

It has been proven that factors such as stress, oxidative stress produced by free radicals, poor diet and environments full of bad energy and conflict shorten telomeres.

Inflammatory Toxins

A large number of diseases related to digestive problems and the immune system are mainly due to the accumulation of toxins, especially toxins in the intestine, which causes inflammatory responses throughout the body.

Most of our immune system resides in the intestine, which is why it is so important to reduce the amount of toxins, not only with what we ingest, but also the toxins to which we are exposed, both in environmental issues and through the use of products that we apply to our skin and that are saturated with chemicals. Everything we apply to our skin goes into our blood, so using products free of harsh chemicals is imperative. (Product link here)

Increasing the Antioxidant Capacity of Our Cells

Healthy antioxidants are mainly found in plant sources such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, etc. One way to increase the antioxidant capacity in our cells is through a healthy lifestyle. Antioxidants also help neutralize free radicals in our body, thus improving overall health.

A Good Supply of Fatty Acids

The body needs a daily supply of fats to work correctly and meet its needs. Unsaturated fats have an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin, improving its quality. These are the so-called healthy fats that are present in avocado, nuts, salmon, olive oil, etc.

Omega 3 fatty acids belong to this group of fats. The unhealthy ones are the so-called saturated fats and trans fats found in beef, pork, margarine, etc. Unsaturated fats or healthy fats are solid at room temperature like coconut oil.

Through a correct diet and an adequate lifestyle we can reduce the load of inflammatory toxins, maximize the antioxidant potential of our cells and provide the fatty acids necessary to keep our skin young and, above all, healthier.
