How does it work?

Promotes healthy skin and a healthy immune system.

A combination of skin nutrients like zinc, vitamin A, lysine, selenium, and vitamin E make up our skin protect supplement. It also has pelargonium which has many health benefits and therapeutic properties. It is excellent for acne and skin breakouts as it stops the spread of infection. People today are under enormous pressure, it reduces stress, exhaustion, and apathy. It is a powerful immune modulator and helps with respiratory infections, sore throats, and common colds, and has been used as a substitute for antibiotics in some cases without the recurrent damage done. It acts upon the micro-organisms that have taken hold in the lungs and upper respiratory tract. Together with zinc, vitamin A and E, and lysine, pelargonium has a knock-on effect of protecting the external skin as well as the internal skin in the upper and lower respiratory tract. Selenium works with pelargonium to boost the immune system.

Key ingredients

Pelargonium-

Extracted from a South African plant called Pelargonium sidoides, it has natural antiviral and antibacterial properties, and may be the most effective of all herbal medicines in the treatment of:
– common colds
– sore throats
– headaches
– sinusitis
– laryngitis
– tonsillitis
– asthma

Selenium

Forms an integral part of at least 25 human proteins, including the selenoenzymes (powerful antioxidants), which protect tissues from metabolic damage. Selenium enhances the action of a liver enzyme (P450) involved in detoxifying cancer-causing chemicals; is involved in the repair of damaged genes and the interconversion and deactivation of thyroid hormones. It is needed for normal cell growth and immunity and it protects against a range of degenerative diseases such as hardening and furring of the arteries, emphysema, liver cirrhosis, cataracts, arthritis, stroke, and heart attack.

L-Lysine

Is known to help build collagen in the skin and banish acne, cold sores, and fights hair loss. It is also extremely beneficial for the heart and prevents atherosclerosis

Zinc

Plays a vital role throughout the body. It is an essential nutrient. From immune health and function, Zinc is a crucial mineral that we obtain through diet and/or supplementation. It is also a necessary component in the activity of over 300 enzymes, which aid in many processes such as metabolism, digestion, and nerve function.

Vitamin A and Vitamin E are both powerful immune stimulants and are intricately involved in the repair and maintenance of cells, including the skin and lips.
