Skin Antioxidant

Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Antioxidant is

Normal
Low
Normal
High

What does this mean?

Likely to have normal antioxidant capacity. Your genotypes indicate that you have typical antioxidant capacity. See recommendations below on how to improve antioxidant capacity and prevent oxidative damage.

What is Antioxidant?

Our body produces antioxidants, enzymes that protect it from free radical damage. Free radicals are responsible for premature signs of skin aging. Increased amounts of free radicals start a dangerous chain reaction of damage to cellular DNA, skin proteins and lipids. The key antioxidant enzymes our body produces are catalase and superoxide dismutase. These enzymes protect cells in the skin (as well as other tissues) from free radical damage, and are responsible for converting them into less harmful products. Those with genetic variations in the above enzymes have reduced protection from the harmful effects of superoxide radicals and hydrogen peroxide. This variation makes their skin cells more vulnerable to free radical damage.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Food sources with vitamins A, C, D and E, essential omega-3-fatty acids, some proteins (e.g. collagen) and lactobacilli, have been referred to as anti-oxidative agents capable of promoting skin health and beauty.
  2. Flavonoids food sources (e.g. cranberries, blueberries, grapes) work well with vitamin C food, as it may reduce the rate of ageing and improve skin conditions.

Lifestyle Recommendations:

  1. Avoid tobacco smoking as the study found that smoking may reduce blood resistance against free radicals.
  2. Smoking has found to show adverse effects and interfere with the absorption of antioxidants and vitamins, which affect the antioxidant defence system.

Exercise Recommendations:

  1. Regular exercise and physical activity can increase antioxidant capacity, thereby enhancing blood resistance to free radical.
  2. For older people, regular physical activity demonstration shows to strengthen the antioxidant defence system.
