NEW! Strong natural antioxidant bomb!

This year is rich in many new products being introduced by Colway. Only this summer the company has launched 4 new products and a new beauty set so watch this space as I’ll do my best to keep you posted about those newbies.

Today I wanted to introduce you to a brand new dietary supplement: ORACol

ORACol is a natural dietary supplement dry extracts of fruit, vegetable and herbs which have the highest ORAC index (oxygen radical absorbance capacity – is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples in vitro. READ MORE on Wiki).

Top 20 ORAC Value Foods

The first two: cloves and sumac are not allowed to be added to any dietary supplements. However all of the other foods listed above are part of ORACol dietary supplement and they are raw extracts of the highest quality (see list of ingredients at the bottom of this article).

Colway also took care of supporting the body with ingredients that activate our natural antioxidant mechanism. Such a product is the first COMPLEX antioxidant supplement, giving the human body so much support in the fight against free radicals.

Free radicals and antioxidants (also called antioxidants or antioxidants) are constantly circulating in our body. If there is balance between them, we feel good. Excess free radicals not only harm our beauty but cause a number of diseases. Antioxidants are as vital to our lives as essential vitamins, minerals or amino acids that regulate the processes of collagenogenesis.

ORACol includes glutathione and l-cysteine.

Glutathione is often called “the mother of all antioxidants”. It is present in every single cell in our organism and has many health benefits. To mention but a few it significantly reduces stress, decreases fatigue, improves mood and is a good immune system booster. It has been used to treat many different diseases, about which you can read in more detail HERE. It is vital for our organism to maintain a proper level of glutathione in our body cells. You can do that by eating food rich in this peptide, however you should know that cooking reduces its content in vegetables by 30-60%, and canned products don’t contain glutathione at all.

Food rich in glutathione:

  • raw eggs, raw milk
  • red meat
  • beef liver
  • unprocessed, undenatured whey protein
  • high quality lean protein
  • sulfur foods (cabbage, kale, radish, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, broccoli, watercress, greens…)
  • folate foods (avocado, lentils, asparagus, garlic, squash, citrus fruit…)
  • turmeric

L-cysteine is one of three precursors that your body needs in order to produce glutathione. The other two are Glycine and Glutamic Acid. Cysteine is being produced by your body mainly from methionine. Other precursors (building blocks) for cysteine are the minerals: selenium and folate and the B vitamins: B1, B2, B6, B12. So if you are deficient in any of those your organism is not able to produce l-cysteine and glutathione.

Food rich in l-cysteine:

  • raw eggs, raw milk
  • meet (beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, pork)
  • fish and shellfish
  • soya foods
  • seeds and nuts
  • oats and oat bran
  • wholegrains
  • beans, lentils

Apart from that, this product contains only anti-caking agent (magnesium salts of fatty acids), and the capsules are made of is fish gelatin.

Face cream with natural antioxidants

As promised before, here’s a post about Natural Face Cream with antioxidants from Colway International.

 

The first impression:

The cream comes in a dark brown glass jar of 60ml capacity packed in a recyclable brown box. It has a spatula for hygienic application. The cream has a light pinky colour and a pleasant very delicate smell. It is recommended for both women and men.

What the Producer says:

Beauty Care Day and Night Cream for both him and her. The perfect condition for the human body is the balance between oxidants and antioxidants. The reduction or increase of free radicals’ activity is referred to as oxidative stress. Free radicals first attack the cell membranes of the skin, including structural proteins such as collagen. The effect visible on your face is the loss of firmness, wrinkles and lack of suppleness.

Antioxidant face cream is a genuine bomb that will protect your skin against free radicals and their harmful effects! A concentrated dose of 7 natural antioxidants will effectively smooth your skin, strengthen its structure and protective layer, and soothe any irritation. Your skin will respond with good condition and it will enchant you with its vitality and young glow.

What’s it made of:

Coenzyme Q10 – supports cell metabolism and regeneration and has antioxidative effects; it prevents cell damage, reduces wrinkles, makes the skin firm and young, improves the increase of moisturisation and suppleness.

Vitamin E – strong antioxidant; it stops the skin ageing processes, rebuilds the lipid layers of the epidermis and increases its protection against harmful external factors.

Chinese tea extract – thanks to the polyphenols, it has strong antioxidative effects, it eliminates the effects of free radicals, supports regeneration, has anti-wrinkle effects as it prevents the decomposition of proteins responsible for firmness and suppleness. It stimulates cell division, which is why it has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces skin irritation, flaking and redness. It shrinks blood vessels, has antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

Wild Andean rose extract – rich in vitamin A and C, it strengthens capillaries, has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and shrinking properties, supports the prevention of skin ageing and is perfect for sensitive skin care.

Rosemary leaves extract – recommended for the care of mature skin due to its firming and antioxidative properties. It combats free radicals and acts as a natural sunscreen. It disinfects and has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Sunflower oil – it strengthens the natural barrier of the skin, softens it and boosts the regeneration process. It has antioxidative properties, regulates the secretion of sebum and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Macadamia oil – supplies the skin with vitamin A, B and E as well as mineral compounds; it makes flabby skin firm and supple, stimulates microcirculation in the skin, moisturises and nourishes skin that is prone to dryness and flaking, helps protect the skin against harmful effects of the sun.

 

My impressions:

  • this is by far the most efficient face cream I’ve ever had! I’ve been using it regularly every day since August and there’s still about 2/3 left!!! Can’t believe it. Definitely great value for money.
  • application is very pleasant; the cream is very light, spreads smoothly on the skin and gets absorbed very fast, doesn’t leave that sticky feeling, instead makes it a perfect base for your makeup.
  • skin feels fresh and smooth after application, looks healthy and radiant. I didn’t get any unpleasant reaction and heard no complaints about this cream neither from my friends nor customers.
  • the cream regulates the secretion of sebum; skin looks fresh all day even with makeup on, it doesn’t become oily.
  • the only very little thing I would recommend for improvement is to replace the spatula with an airless jar with a pump, but to me it’s not a big issue anyway.
  • the cost €80.95 for 60ml might seem a lot to some, however taking into consideration how long-lasting this product is and what ingredients it contains, this price is not too high. Besides as a registered Customer you get a 10% discount, and as a Partner you get even 40% so in the end this cream might cost you only €48.57.
