In the fight to reduce the signs of aging, two new superheroes are rising to the occasion, but they're two you would never expect: apples and grapes. These fruits, which have a high concentration of cells that are skin-like, are whispering anti-aging secrets into the ears of researchers the world over.
Other plant sources, such as flowers, are being explored as well. But for now, apples and grapes are the lead plant contenders in the never-ending fight against wrinkles.
It is the fruit, rather than the vine or tree, which is lending a hand to our quest for never-ending youth. Researchers casually noticed that a certain species of apples had a very long shelf life and resisted wrinkles over time. Once explored, researchers realized this property could be applied to human skin.
The aging knockout comes in the form of the one-two punch combo of both the apple extract and the grape extract. Each source has unique properties that together, can result in younger, more healthy-looking skin.
After scientists stumbled upon the apple’s ability to keep its youthful appearance, they found that apple stem cells delay the aging process as well as decrease wrinkle depth in human skin; in fact, the anti-wrinkle effect was evaluated in human clinical trials to put this theory to the scientific test. The results were astonishing: those researchers found a 15% proven decrease in wrinkle depth over the span of 28 days.
On the other hand, grape stem cells have a regenerative effect on skin cells as well contain a very high amount of antioxidants. These antioxidants protect your skin from free radicals found in environmental pollutants, smoking, tanning and sun exposure.
Lately, red wine and grape juice have been touted as a great source of antioxidants, and these popular drinks were tested for the capacity to regenerate tissue; the result was an 80% improvement in cell regeneration and resulted in younger looking skin amongst test subjects.
As if we needed another reason to embrace a little red wine now and then!
