Q: What are some key causes of aging and what you can tell us about YOUTH Skin Care and how it helps?
What comes to mind is the science behind YOUTH; one of the key aspects is that it’s formulated to address the key causes of aging. Our skin is constantly under assault from the environment, and free radical damage accelerates aging of our skin. So to be effective you have to have a technology that protects the skin against those assaults. But in addition, a lot of the latest anti-aging science revolves around the skin’s regenerative processes. When you look deeper, our skin produces collagen and elastin; these are proteins in the skin that keep our skin supple, keep it firm, and prevent wrinkles from forming. But after the age of 20 our skin produces less collagen and elastin every year, and over the course of a lifetime that has a dramatic impact on our skin. Up to 80 percent of the thickness of our skin is lost as we age. So if there is a way to intervene in that loss as we age, we have a really effective scientific approach—and we did just that.
The YOUTH System
A first-to-market aspect of our YOUTH science is that it targets the key youth proteins in the skin, only recently discovered in the world of anti-aging research, that help signal cells to keep producing more collagen and elastin. The Lotus Japonicus extract, a key botanical ingredient in our Youth Complex, is a first-to-market technology from the standpoint that it targets those key proteins. That helps signal the cells to keep producing more collagen and elastin, and that’s a key first with our science.
Another breakthrough aspect of YOUTH is on the protection side. People who are familiar with Vivix® know that one of the key ingredients is the muscadine grape, which works at the cellular level in our body to help prevent cellular aging. So we adapted the muscadine grape extract for its use in skin care applications. What our testing showed was that it also works in our skin cells to protect cells at the DNA level which is so critical because the DNA is like the control center of the cell. If your DNA is damaged it doesn’t function properly, and you start to see signs of aging. If you can protect that DNA from damage from the environment, that’s the best protection you can give your skin, and our muscadine grape polyphenol blend helps do just that in skin cells.

Have you ever wondered how safe the products are that you put on your skin? Do all of those “anti-aging” products actually work? Is purity and science behind the products you use important?
YOUTH Skin Care was researched for 8 years in order to bring us products that not only work but also don’t have over 2500 of those ingredients that are shown not to be safe.
Here is some Q&A that helps us understand the “Why?” we might want to change brands and have fabulous results! I will be doing several blogs with answers to different questions we all have. First let’s start with:
Q: How is this YOUTH skin care line different from others in the market?
Are you part of a growing trend to seek more natural beauty products? The challenge to meet that consumer need is that a product claim to be all natural may be valid but they often don’t really deliver products that truly work. The flip side of that is many companies deliver products that work but they are nowhere near natural and they rely on many questionable chemicals to deliver on that efficacy.
So you have this mutually exclusive space in the market today where you’re either free of potentially harmful chemicals or you deliver high performance.
We’ve found that sweet spot where we’ve bridged the gap. With YOUTH, we have products that we’ve clinically demonstrated deliver amazing results without 2500 ingredients that are potentially harmful.
When you look at our claims versus other companies’ out there today, YOUTH truly delivers benefits above and beyond what the competitors are even claiming. But we didn’t have to rely on potentially harmful chemicals to deliver on that efficacy.

Years ago my former husband John had surgery because of a bleeding ulcer. Afterwards the gastroenterologist told him he would be on Protonics for the rest of his life. The internist agreed.
Just yesterday, speaking with 4 other women, Acid Reflux issues came up with 3 of them!!! I thought this blog was a perfect subject, as a result.
John was off the medicine in 2 weeks!! We did our research and also spoke with Dr. Richard Brouse. Here is a current article by him on Acid Reflux. May it help anyone suffering. Call me for more information
What would it look like if you could feel fit and fabulous whether you are 40, 50, 60, 70 or beyond?
How many people begin their decline into fear of aging, attributing every ache and pain to getting older, even at age 40? Have you seen the “Over the Hill” birthday decorations and favors? People use these for those having birthdays over 40!! People – get REAL!!!!
Much of the aches and pains are what I like to call “accelerated aging” because we haven’t taken the best of care of our attitudes and our bodies. Does that mean you have done something wrong to be where you are today? No, for most it is not knowing the options, unfortunate circumstances or not taking responsibility for our health.

Which of the following could be an early warning sign of a heart attack? A. Anxiety___
C. Jaw pain___
Answer: All of them, again (are you onto us?). “It’s hard to parse some of these symptoms because women tend to be juggling so much as a matter of course,” says Arnett. Three questions to ask : is this a new symptom? Did it appear suddenly? Does it resolve if I rest for a few minutes? “When in doubt, call an ambulance,” she says “If the worst case scenario is wasting time at the hospital, that’s far than than the alternative.”

Attention workaholics: How many hours can you clock each week before your heart pays a price? A. 45___
Answer: A. When researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Centers and the University of St Thomas in Houston analyzed data on more than 1,900 people, they found that among people who worked 45 hours per week for a decade or more, each additional hour meant greater risk of heart disease. Risk climbed 16 percent when people put in 55 hours and 35 percent for 60 hours.
WOW! This should be a wakeup call! Americans are hardworking and often put in way more than the 45 hours noted here. One tip to help on those longer days – get up every hour and take 3 deep breaths and walk around your office, in the corridor or outside for at least a couple of minutes. You will feel refreshed and able to concentrate better for the next hour.
Give you heart a rest – it deserves it!!

Which is the best choice here? Your friend just betrayed you big time! What’s the heart healthiest way to manage your anger? A. Tell her off___
B. Run it off____
C. Walk it off___
D. Find consolation in Ben and Jerry’s___
Answer: C Taking a walk calms the fight or flight response, as do cool down activities like stretching and deep breathing. Intense physical activity, on the other hand, can push your heart into the danger zone. “Anger triggers an adrenaline response that reduces blood flow to the arteries,” says Donna Arnett, PhD, dean of the University of Kentucky College of Public Health. “Strenuous exercise in this state is incredibly taxing on the heart.” An Australian study found that the risk of a heart attack was more than eight times higher when patients had been very angry in two hours before the onset of symptoms, while another recent study showed that the risk tripled in those who experienced anger and heavy exertion in the hour before.
“Women need to start worrying about heart disease after they hit menopause”.
It’s believed that the drop in estrogen that accompanies menopause may make your blood vessels less elastic, increasing the strain on your heart. However, when researchers followed nearly 1,500 women over nine years, they found that in the years leading up to menopause, there was an increase in the severity of metabolic syndrome…a group of risk factors, including high fasting blood sugar and high blood pressure, associated with heart disease. This effect was even more pronounced in black women.
