Purslane fountain of youth
Why is the garden purslane a source of youth? We would like to tell you about the properties of garden purslane, which is the main component in all cosmetics and food supplements of Dr. Barbara Sturm.
Purslane has a great variety of useful properties. Garden purslane acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-aging agent. The purslane extract contains the following components: the amino acid glutathione, alkaloids, coumarins, glycosides, saponins, flavonoids, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B1, B2, C and E, niacinamide, nicotinic, glutamic, aspartic, malic and citric acids.
The main effect of purslane extract in cosmetics and food supplements is curative: it exhibits pronounced anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and soothing effects. In addition to them, it has antimicrobial, antifungal and analgesic effects. It has been proven that purslane extract reduces the synthesis of a long series of inflammatory mediators, stimulates interleukins (the immune system) and histamine (a regulator of many physiological processes). This makes it possible to classify it as an anti-allergic substance.
In addition, this component promotes improved skin hydration, exhibits antioxidant activity and protects cell DNA from damage. Also works as a natural preservative. Purslane is a natural source of the natural antioxidant glutathione, which stabilizes vitamin C: this doubles its antioxidant properties. Purslane has an anti-age effect, "smoothes" wrinkles and prevents the formation of new ones. Some studies have shown that purslane can have a botox-like effect.
Today, garden purslane is rarely found in cosmetics. If you manage to find cosmetics and vitamins containing purslane, do not miss the opportunity to be convinced of its many properties. To improve the condition of the skin, we advise you to use cosmetics together with food additives, following the course - 30 days.
