Beauty from Within Supplement Market Growing, Healthy Aging Is Possible with Solarplast

The desire to look and feel beautiful only continues to grow amongst the population. Through the decades, many have turned to external treatments to help reverse the signs of age; today, however, the demand for ‘beauty from within’ is booming. As such, beauty supplements have risen rapidly in popularity, boasting a market value of over $144 million in the US, according to Euromonitor International.

Why are Healthy Aging and Beauty from Within Supplements on the Rise?

Much of the excitement around this category of supplements is due to an aging population. Per a census report, the percentage of the global population that is 65 or older is estimated to double by 2050. Combine this with a more educated and proactive approach to maturing, and it’s clear to see why these products are in such high demand.

How Do Supplements Impact the Rate of Aging?

Most healthy aging supplements focus on combatting free radicals with antioxidants. Free radicals damage the body’s cells via oxidative stress—a natural process occurring over time that’s influenced by environmental toxins, diet, exercise, and illnesses.

Antioxidants deliver detoxification, slowing the natural process of cell damage. There are many kinds of antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, and other related carotenoids. The antioxidant with the most potent regeneration capabilities, though, is glutathione.

Offering excellent benefits when paired with enzymes and energy molecules, glutathione is composed of three amino acids—cysteine, glycine, and glutamate. Possessing extremely high glutathione content levels, spinach is a prime dietary and derivation source for the antioxidant. However, while it neutralizes a wide range of oxidants, a glutathione supplement can be difficult for the gut to absorb.

Enter Solarplast®.

So, What is Solarplast?

Deerland—a supplier of science-backed solutions for microbiome health —has harnessed the power of protoplasts found in organic spinach to create Solarplast. Hindering the cell-damaging effects of free radicals, Solarplast is a spinach extract that’s enzymatically enhanced via a proprietary manufacturing process to deliver massive concentrations of detoxifying antioxidants.

The Difference is in the Manufacturing Process

Typical extraction processes destroy the spinach plant’s cell wall as well as the lipid membrane lining the protoplast, exposing the plant’s nutrients and antioxidants to the elements, rendering their benefits unusable. The innovative process to create Solarplast, on the other hand, enables the break-down of the plant’s tough cell wall without immolating the underlying lipid layer. By keeping the naturally occurring lipid coating intact, the spinach cell’s valuable contents are protected.

The Proof is in the Solarplast Pudding

In addition, facilitating the glutathione pathway of antioxidant regeneration, the additional presence of partnering enzymes improve the bioavailability, and thus, the antioxidant power of Solarplast, increasing the absorption of the antioxidants present in spinach by 33%. Demonstrating the ability to persist in cellular repair, in vitro tests with porcine liver exposed to free radical damage have shown that Solarplast yielded a 35% repair to the liver during the first 30 minutes while continuing to repair at more than 60% by 60 minutes. Other antioxidants tested a provided repair after 30 minutes with no further repair at 60 minutes.

Offering all the raw materials needed for the production and regeneration of glutathione, Solarplast ranks at 5 mg per GAE/gram in Total Antioxidant Capacity (TAC), containing more than double the TAC of regular spinach. Solarplast also offers a bounty of other healthy-aging components, including B12, which can improve mental clarity and reduce tiredness after eating, and molecular chaperones that boost the digestive system and provide protection from free radicals.
