Out of all the important factors for healthy, glowing skin, there is one very important element that often goes unnoticed, minerals.
It seems that when it comes to skin health, vitamins and a “good diet” as a generality gets most of the attention.
However, minerals are some of the most important nutrients responsible for the health of our skin.
One of the main sources of essential minerals for skin comes from the ocean, specifically algae.
Algae otherwise known as seaweed, exists in many different forms and types.
Among all the hundreds of different types of Algae, there are mainly 7 types:
• Euglenophyta (Euglenoids)
• Chrysophyta (Golden-brown algae and Diatoms)
• Pyrrophyta (Fire algae)
• Chlorophyta (Blue-Green algae)
• Rhodophyta (Red algae)
• Paeophyta (Brown algae)
• Xanthophyta (Yellow-green algae)
Out of all of these, Cellnoc included a Chlorophyta algae type called Spirulina together with 7 other algae substances.
Let’s look at some important minerals included in Cellnoc:
Magnesium is an essential mineral for skin health, bones, teeth, hair and the muscles, and it helps keep the nervous system running smoothly. A magnesium deficiency can accelerate aging of the skin. Added to skincare products, it benefits skin by helping to retain skin elasticity. Eating fast foods and drinking soft drinks and too much alcohol can rapidly deplete and leach the body of magnesium, so avoid them. If you have had a tipple or exercise daily then pop a couple of good quality health supplements before bed. Make sure the formula is primarily magnesium citrate and use practitioner only products to ensure minimum fillers.
We all know the importance of ample calcium intake for healthy teeth and bones, but it’s also an essential mineral that benefits skin health. The human body contains more calcium than any other mineral -about 90% of our bone structure is made up of it. It plays a major role in providing firmness and elasticity for the skin as well as all tissues and cells of the body. Calcium rich foods can also deter acne. A calcium deficiency will result in fragile and thin skin, loss of hair, weak bones and brittle nails. Pregnant and lactating women require more as the mother's calcium reserves are drawn on at these times. If you want to improve your overall skin health, then calcium is a must.
Potassium, along with sodium, helps regulate the amount of water in your body’s cells, so a lack of potassium in the diet can lead to dry skin and other skin disorders. Potassium is an electrolyte, which means it holds an electric charge, which is needed for cells to function normally. Most people get enough potassium through their daily diet, but if you’ve been sick with diarrhea or lost a lot of fluid through perspiration, you may need to take an electrolyte powder to top up your stores. The health benefits of potassium are vital for skin care, along with maintaining overall good health, but try to avoid going over the recommended daily amounts.
These minerals have many functions in your skin such as:
• attribute to many physiological functions via enzyme function
• transfer nutrients across the cell membranes
• make up most of our skin tissue, hair, teeth, and bones
• generate energy
• facilitate enzyme function
• promote proper nerve and muscle function
• responsible for immune activity
• support digestive function
• aid cell renewal
• regulate tissue growth
• encourage wound healing
• protect the body from infection
• produce hormones
As mentioned in the previous posting, Cellnoc’s main ingredient Spirulina contains significant amounts of calcium, niacin, potassium, magnesium, B vitamins and iron.
