Vitamins, Minerals, and Hormones in Skin Rejuvenation

Vitamin B12 Offers Hope for Alzheimer's PreventionIf you’ve ever heard about one of those “miracle” supplements that claim they can make your skin look younger just by taking a pill a few times a day, you’re probably right in suspecting the pill is a fraud.  However, there is some truth to the idea that certain vitamins, minerals, and hormones can have a positive effect on your skin.  Dr. Roxana Kerns of the Orchid Aesthetics skincare clinic has extensive training and experience in this area and often recommends her patients take certain supplements following their cosmetic procedures to help keep their skin looking great for years without any follow-up treatments.  While these supplements are not going to make a person stop aging, they will certainly help.

 

Vitamin B

Its a water soluble vitamin important in metabolism of red blood cells and nervous system. Non animal sources of Vitamin B12 are not as reliable and not considered adequate for day to day activities. Sources of B12 are meat fish and dairy products. Vitamin B12 injections are readily absorbed into the system and will boost up your metabolism and give you increased energy.

Vitamin D3

One popular vitamin that has not always received the attention it should is vitamin D2,3.  While many health professionals do check their patient’s vitamin D levels and have them take supplements to increase their overall health, few really understand just how necessary this vitamin is for the skin.  One problem with vitamin D is that the body creates it from sunlight, yet being in the sun can directly cause the skin to wrinkle and become discolored.  Another issue is that the body uses much of this vitamin D before the skin can actually use it.

Because of the many factors that affect how well the body makes vitamin D – the time of year, the location, the age of the person, etc. – not to mention the widespread use of sunblock, it’s actually fairly difficult for the body to make enough vitamin D.  This is why many people take supplements.  When taken in the form of calcitriol, vitamin D can quickly and easily be absorbed by the skin.  Here, it helps replace dead skin cells. Vitamin D3 is necessary as support for the thyroid function and therefore medical grade vitamin D3, 5000 or 10000units are more likely to support your immune function and balance your body.

Vitamin K2

Another vitamin that may greatly help the health of our skin is vitamin K2.  Some research has uncovered a link between excessive wrinkles and a lack of vitamin K2.  This is especially true in postmenopausal women.  While more study needs to be done in this area, many do believe that if people were to increase their levels of vitamin K2, they may see fewer wrinkles.  There may also be less of a risk for osteoporosis, diabetes, and kidney disease.

Estrogen

Many older menopausal women find that their skin begins to show signs of aging more quickly.  That is because studies have shown that estrogen actually helps prevent skin from showing signs of aging.  Many women, then, begin using topical estrogen once their body stops producing it naturally to keep their skin looking younger and healthier.  This actually helps make the skin stronger and increases the amount of collagen in it.

Usually, this topical estrogen is such a low dose that it does not interfere with the body’s natural rhythm, but it is enough to increase how the skin looks.  Most doctors prescribe estriol, a very weak estrogen that is actually created from plants and has no negative side effects.
