Boosting NAD+ levels for skin longevity

Mibelle Biochemistry investigates the potential of sunflower sprout active, a product derived from organically grown sunflower sprouts, for promoting skin rejuvenation. In vitro and ex vivo studies have shown that sunflower sprouts can combat ageing processes by elevating NAD+ levels, enhancing DNA repair, improving mitochondrial function, and increasing collagen density

ABSTRACT

The cosmetics industry is increasingly focusing on longevity, with a growing demand for maintaining a youthful appearance across all age groups. This article investigates the potential of sunflower sprout active, a product derived from organically grown sunflower sprouts, for promoting skin rejuvenation. In vitro and ex vivo studies have shown that sunflower sprouts can combat ageing processes by elevating NAD+ levels, enhancing DNA repair, improving mitochondrial function, and increasing collagen density. A subsequent clinical study revealed enhanced skin smoothness and facial lifting potential after application of 2% sunflower sprout active. Furthermore, the treatment noticeably reduced ageing signs, such as wrinkles and nasolabial folds, contributing to a youthful skin appearance. These findings suggest that sunflower sprout active can boost endogenous NAD+ levels, counteract fundamental ageing processes and optimize cellular processes. Overall, this research highlights the potential of sunflower sprout active in meeting the cosmetics industry’s demand for youthful-looking skin, offering a holistic solution for skin rejuvenation

The beauty industry is increasingly emphasizing the trending concept of longevity to meet the everlasting demand for vital, youthful skin and skin rejuvenation. This emphasis aligns with the historical pursuit for prolonged lifespan, which has driven advances in research related to ageing.
