Review on AGEL GLOGLO Facts
GLO was conceptualized to offer a specifically formulated product that will give your body the nutritional needs to reflect your health and beauty from the inside out. In conjunction with the Agel Body line, your body will obtain ingredients carefully researched and studied to bring the beauty care and nutrition to a full circle. With revolutionary ingredients like Turmeric and Acerola Cherry, GLO is all natural and provides protection from harsh chemicals, long term effects from the sun, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots and also evens out skin complexion.
What are free radicals, how do they work?
Free-radical damage occurs on an atomic level. Molecules are made of atoms, and a single atom is made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Electrons are always found in pairs. However, when oxygen molecules are involved in a chemical reaction, they can lose one of their electrons. This oxygen molecule that now only has one electron is called a free radical. With only one electron the oxygen molecule must quickly find another electron, and it does this by taking the electron from another molecule. When that molecule in turn loses one of its electrons, it too must seek out another, in a continuing reaction. Molecules attempting to repair themselves in this way trigger a cascading event called free-radical damage.
What causes a molecule to let go of one of its electrons, generating free-radical damage? The answer is oxygen or any compound that contains an oxygen molecule, such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen peroxide, and superoxide) plus sunlight, and pollution.
Antioxidants prevent unstable oxygen molecules (made unstable by loss of one electron) from interacting with other molecules (taking one of their electrons) and consequently causing them to become unstable, a process that starts the free-radical chain reaction. Fortunately, a vast assortment of antioxidants can be found in both the human body and in the plant world.
So what does that have to do with wrinkles? No one is exactly sure, but theoretically wrinkles appear when the free-radical damage originates from natural environmental factors and fails to be cancelled out by some amount of antioxidant protection. If we dont get enough antioxidant protection, either from our own bodys production, from dietary sources, or from antioxidants, including those we put on our skin, free-radical damage continues unrestrained, causing cells to break down and impairing or destroying their ability to function normally.
Antioxidants (anti- meaning against) reduce these harmful effects by repairing the damage done to these molecules and decreasing their destructive power.
