HERB + FLORA has signed an exclusive partnership with Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, MD, Ph.D., Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine, CEO and CSO of Exerkine Corp, and Director of the Neuromuscular and Neurometabolic Clinic at McMaster University Medical Center in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This partnership has allowed HERB + FLORA to approach the development of ultra-clean products uniquely, benefiting from Dr. Tarnopolsky’s 30 years of ground-breaking research in the field of autophagy and mitochondria health and the benefits of exercise on muscles and skin.
Dr. Tarnopolsky and his team of researchers have demonstrated that not only does moderate exercise help maintain skin younger-looking longer, but it might even help reverse the effects of age on the skin. Specifically, exercise was associated with a thinning of the age-associated thickening of the outer stratum corneum layer and a thickening of the inner layers, which become thinner with time on older sedentary adults 65+ who picked up running and cycling twice a week for 30 minutes. Moreover, after three months of that regimen, the skin samples studied were very close to those of the 20 to 40 years old respondents.
Autophagy is Mother Nature’s way of removing aging-associated damaged proteins. But with time, skin aging damages the energy source of the cell, the mitochondria, which contributes to a slowing down of the autophagy mechanism and a build-up of these damaged proteins. It creates a vicious cycle whereby a more significant accumulation of damaged proteins further impairs mitochondrial function. This can also lead to greater production of damaging free radicals.
Exercise accelerates the natural autophagy mechanism, where cells recycle waste into fresh energy-boosting amino acids and natural sugars. These regenerated compounds can build new cellular components, including the mitochondria. This enhancement of turnover improves the overall health and function of the cell: Autophagy is the next beauty frontier.
With this understanding of exercise science and made of clean ingredients proven by in vivo testing, HERB + FLORA's proprietary blend, the Exercise Mimic Youth Complex, is a ground-breaking combination of conscious beauty actives that helps reproduce the anti-aging effects of exercise and unlocks the life energy of the skin. These pure clean products, formulated with a proprietary complex and other clinically proven naturally derived ingredients, are designed to help enhance the skin’s natural energy supply and support lower oxidative stress.
Because the health and beauty of skin depend on more than a topical regimen, HERB + FLORA created an optimal SkinFit Program from the outside in and from the inside out with a topical complex, an oral skin health supplement, and intelligent textiles. This holistic approach is the most efficient way to help enhance the skin’s health and energy supply.
