why apocynin regenerates skin

Story at-a-glance -

  • A protein called COL17A1 has been noted by scientists as beneficial to keep skin “intact and unimpaired” through the process of cell competition
  • COL17A1 encourages cell competition by driving out weak cells and revitalizing stronger cells toward replication, and in the process, maintaining tissue fitness
  • Two compounds with the ability to “kick-start” the antiaging process, Y27632 and apocynin, produced positive results on skin cells via skin regeneration and reducing skin aging
  • Vanilla bean, Picrorhiza kurroa, a plant found in India and Tibet and with the faint odor of vanilla, and Jatropha multifida or coral plant have all been found to contain apocynin
  • Principal benefits from apocynin include powerful antioxidants that reduce inflammation, which together help fight a number of neurodegenerative diseases and arthritis, inhibit tumor migration and more
