Collagen is one of the main proteins that makes up the tissues of our body. It is found not only in the skin, but also in bones, muscles, joints, etc. Therefore, it plays a very important role in the health of our skin and in the preservation of our youth. Different genes affect its formation, and we will evaluate the changes in these genes to tell what is recommended exactly for you.
UV radiation is the most harmful environmental factor to preserve youthful skin. The body has its own protective mechanism – the formation of melanin. MC1R and ASIP are the most important genes in melanin production, but their function may be incomplete due to frequent genetic variants. Our answer will be about your genetic protection – what is it? Is your body well protected against UV radiation or should you pay special attention to protection?
Every second the human body creates “waste” of metabolic reactions called free radicals. These compounds can cause tissue damage in the long term, and therefore the skin aging. When present in large quantities, they cause oxidative stress, which can damage cells. Tested genes encode important free radical converters and may result in oxidative stress. You will find out what your genetic defense against oxidative stress is and also about your Q10 recycling capacity.
There are special repeats at the ends of chromosomes called telomeres. Telomeres shorten after each cell division. If they become very short, the cell “falls asleep”, cannot perform its functions, and thus interferes with the surrounding cells. Some genes help us maintain the length of telomeres, but it is also important to see if there are any changes. In this case, recommendations for you will focus on the nutrients needed to restore telomere length, which is very important in preventing aging.
Stretch marks are a rupture of the subcutaneous, middle layer of the skin, connective tissues, which occurs when the skin is rapidly stretched. The formation of stretch marks depends on various factors, but the most important is genetics. The skin contains various proteins that provide its elasticity. If any of these proteins are not working properly, there is an increased risk of developing stretch marks.
What will you find out? What exactly your genetic protection is – and we will give you recommendations that are important for you in order to keep your skin elasticity as much as possible according to your level of protection.
Cellulite is abnormally increased adipose tissue cells and subcutaneous fat in different parts of the body. The influence of genetic factors on the development of cellulite has been proven, which may increase the risk. With an early awareness of these risks, timely detection and prevention of cellulite is possible.
You will find out exactly your genetic protection and receive advice on prevention, care preparations, procedures and food supplements.
