The Power of Three - How it Works

The three key ingredients in ULTRA 3 work together to provide cellular level support. The powerful antioxidant properties of these naturally derived components reduce oxidative stress by combating the free radicals that can cause cell damage.

Astaxanthin

Skin Health and Protection

Immune System Support

Boosts Muscle/Joint Performance

Aides Healthy Brain Activity

Helps Heart Functionality

 

Astaxanthin is produced naturally in freshwater microalgae (Pluvialis algae). It is also found some types of seafood like

salmon, rainbow trout, shrimp and lobster and gives them their reddish hue.

 

Astaxanthin is often referred to as "the king of carotenoids" because of its reputation as one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. It is 6,000 times more potent than vitamin C.

Although astaxanthin has many health benefits listed above are the top five.

 

Astaxanthin exhibits both anti-fatigue and anti-inflammatory properties. As an antioxidant it helps mitigate oxidation, a natural process that is responsible for the majority of inflammatory responses in our bodies. Free radicals are a normal byproduct of cell metabolism, however untamed free radicals can destroy healthy cells. Oxidative stress caused by too many free radicals can have an adverse effect on the body and it's immune response.

Astaxanthin can naturally help reduce these negative impacts to your cells and plays an active role in reducing age spots, smoothing wrinkles and helping restore skin moisture.

Nicotinamide (B3)

Helps Protect Against Skin Cancer

Reduces Hyperpigmentation and Dark Spots

Strengthens Skin Protective Barrier Increasing Hydration

Improves Acne and Rosacea

Minimizes Pores, Fine Lines and Wrinkles

 

Nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide or nicotinic acid amide, is the water-soluble, active form of vitamin B3. Since our bodies do not produce this vitamin on its own it's important to add it to our daily routine.

 

Nicotinamide has a range of photoprotective effects, enhances DNA repair, reduces UV Radiation-induced suppression of skin immune response, modulates inflammatory response, restores cellular energy levels after UV exposure and Nicotinamide has been shown to reduce actinic keratosis and nonmelanoma skin cancer incidence in high risk individuals.

 

Supplementation of nicotinamide restores cellular NAD+ and mitochondrial energetics, attenuates oxidative stress and inflammatory response, enhances extracellular matrix and skin barrier, and inhibits the pigmentation process in the skin. Nicotinamide is photoimmuno-protective in humans when used orally.

 

Polypodium

Reduces Skin Damage from the Sun

Helps Prevent Sunburn and Skin Cancers

Improves Eczema and Other Inflammations

Protects Cells While Reducing Wrinkles and Discoloration

Aides in the Treatment of Vitiligo and Melasma

 

Polypodium leucotomos is a South American species of fern in the family Polypodiaceae. It has both powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

 

Polypodium leucotomos is a natural mixture of phytochemicals endowed with powerful antioxidant properties. The antioxidant activity of Polypodium leucotomos extract results in the control of skin responses to ultraviolet-induced reddening, in the interception of inflammatory mechanisms, and the promotion of other cytotoxic responses. In addition, these short-term effects translate into long-term prevention of photoaging and photocarcinogenesis.

 

The photoprotection and therapeutic action includes reduction in UV-induced cell damage and blocking UV radiation induced immune suppression.

 

Polypodium leucotomos extract taken daily is a safe and effective means for reducing the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation.
