AFA + Beauty
Learn MoreYour skin completely renews itself every 27 days and is a visible reflection of your complex inner cellular heath. To create healthy functioning cells, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids (EFA) must work together. These nutrients are all in abundance, perfectly balanced and bioavailable in AFA.
The amino acids proline, serine and glutamine that are in AFA stimulate collagen production. Vitamin A and beta carotene reduce skin thickening. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is crucial for maintaining health and flexibility of cell membranes
Lecithin can assist in breaking down cholesterol bumps under the skin. Often enzyme deficiency causes skin lesions, red bumps or eczema. AFA filled with Omega 3’s or fish oils support this. Cysteine biosynthesized in the liver from methionine, which contains the mineral sulfur which is crucial for healthy glowing skin.
Biotin (Vitamin B7) is a water soluble vitamin that utilizes sulfur in the production of skin and hair cells. It is needed in very small amounts and is known as connected to skin and hair health.
AFA contains Mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs) which are water-soluble molecules that absorb UV-A and UV-B radiation and disperse the energy as heat. They are present as an evolutionary adaptation to intense sunlight acting as a sun screen protector.
