ALFALFA EXTRACT - ANTIOXIDANTS ROCK!
ALFALFA EXTRACT: (Medicago Sativa) Known as Mu-Su in Traditional Chinese medicine, Alfalfa made its way to China during the late Han Dynasty (around 2000 A.D.) from Persia. One of its most common uses in Chinese medicine is in the treatment of ulcers. Alfalfa Extract contains a broad spectrum of nutrients, including minerals and vitamins vitamins A, D, E, and K as well as saponins and chlorophyll.
Here at PuraVeda Organics, we use Alfalfa extract as one of our many potent Antioxidants. Our Alfalfa source is USDA Certified Organic, and we steam distill the plant material in our lab for purity and standardized concentration of this powerhouse extract.
ANTIOXIDANT DEFINITION: Antioxidants are just what the name implies, ie; they help reverse, slow down or prevent cellular oxidation. We call this cellular "rust," as oxidation is what causes even something as impervious as iron to degrade and break down over time. Imagine what it can do to your skin and hair. Actually you don't have to imagine, as the evidence for the aging process is all around us.
When it comes to your skin, free-radicals damage, weaken and thin your collagen net, which is your skins major source of support and firmness, and drastically slow down cell turnover time, which is critical to younger looking skin. This cellular oxidation also causes the skin to lose elasticity and sag, as well as the ability to retain moisture. Age spots, depigmentation, wrinkles..the list goes on.
Our philosophy is based in a belief that all serious skin care products should contain an arsenal of stable antioxidants to combat free radical proliferation and damage to your skin, help support your collagen net, elasticity and moisture levels.. In short, to bring you the most effective Anti-Aging Skincare possible in a topical format.
