Chardon-marie et détox : une plante au cœur de la formule de MyCollagenRepair - MyPureSkin

Milk thistle and detox: a plant at the heart of the MyCollagenRepair formula

More than a simple nutricosmetic improving your physical recovery, MyCollagenRepair is a very clever combination of active ingredients that respect your health.
Combining ingredients of natural origin, this food supplement from MyPureSkin offers you broad-spectrum beauty and health benefits.
Contribution to sports performance, improvement of the homogeneity of the skin, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines... MyCollagenRepair allows you to benefit at any age from the benefits of plants with underestimated potential, such as milk thistle.
What properties does this herb, rarely used in industry, have? Why did we choose to integrate it into the MyCollagenRepair formula?
What benefits can you expect from a treatment based on milk thistle with a food supplement such as MyCollagenRepair?
MyPureSkin explains the surprising effects of a little-known plant and how to benefit from them.

Milk thistle: what’s the point?

Taking its name from a religious legend, milk thistle is easily recognized thanks to its spiny leaves with a satiny appearance and characteristic white veins.

Gastronomic and medicinal use for centuries

Used in cooking by Europeans who recognized its beneficial effects for maintaining liver function since the Middle Ages, milk thistle is already known in Egyptian antiquity.
The usefulness attributed to it in taking care of the liver is quite close to reality, as confirmed by more recent scientific discoveries.

Silymarin: a central active ingredient in the effectiveness of milk thistle

Isolated for the first time in 1968, silymarin is the main active ingredient in milk thistle. This molecule with multiple benefits is increasingly studied for the development of various treatments.
One of the most recent and most representative initiatives concerns a meta-analysis published in 2022 (1) by Seyyed Amir Emadi's team.
Focused on the vast therapeutic potential of milk thistle and its key constituent in cancer treatments, this study highlights the broad spectrum of action of silymarin.

The astonishing properties of silymarin, little known to the general public

Little publicized, milk thistle is rarely found in the composition of food supplements targeting physical recovery or even in anti-aging formulas.
This is explained by the avant-garde necessary in the mobilization of its properties, which only a few brands have currently been able to deploy, like MyPureSkin.
In the review by Emadi and his collaborators, we find some of its virtues, among others:

  • Anti-diabetic effects;
  • Anti-hypertensive effects;
  • Hepatoprotective effects;
  • Antioxidant effects.

Silymarin: an active ingredient with a broad spectrum of action

But the most surprising thing is certainly the role that this molecule plays in the activation circuits of certain metabolic processes in the cell.
As recalled by the conclusions of a study published in 2019 by David Schröter and Annika Höhn (2), the risk of the appearance of cancers during the aging process gradually increases.
Furthermore, the chances of developing chronic inflammations affecting the skin and the processes involved in physical recovery follow the same trend with age.
In this regard, silymarin proves to be very effective in synergy with other active ingredients in the prevention of oncology and that of various skin conditions.
But how to explain it?

Balanced diet and sport: what are the ways to fight against the AGE molecules attacking your body?

Beyond its benefits for preserving your muscle mass or the elasticity of your joints, physical activity is essential for the maintenance of your body.
In fact, a sport, even practiced moderately but regularly, has positive consequences on various aspects of your cellular metabolism.
To understand this, you need to look at the composition of your body's proteins, the basic elements of each of your organs, starting with your muscles and your skin.
Proteins such as collagen, which structure these, are made up of amino acids. Their recovery from your environment requires food because your body is incapable of producing them on its own.
So, when you cook in a pan, the heat diffused into the raw food allows you to destroy pathogens and begin the process of breaking down proteins into amino acids. However, this action also triggers a chemical reaction that has a well-known nickname: caramelization.
Falling into the category of “Maillard reactions”, this process is characterized, among other things, by the appearance of black marks on your meat when cooking is prolonged.

AGEs: carcinogenic molecules

On a molecular scale, this reflects the alteration of the molecules making up your food (notably amino acids) through an association with other molecules.
If this combination explains the brownish color of butter as well as the combinations of flavors and odors of a cuisine that many know how to appreciate, it is also harmful to the integrity of the body.
Indeed, following a Maillard reaction, the foods consumed contain carcinogenic molecules: advanced glycation end products (or “AGEs” for Advanced Glycation End products).

The omnipresence of AGEs molecules in the contemporary world

Schröter's study highlights the mechanisms responsible for the increased risk of cancer by explaining the role of AGEs molecules.
Research with similar conclusions, published in 2020 by the team of Omonefe O. Omofuma (3) and his collaborators, also broadens the responsibility of these molecules.
As this latest study points out, AGEs are consumed too frequently through an unbalanced diet, which leads to a disruption of cellular metabolism.
Omofuma explains in his report that cancer is not the only common consequence of this lifestyle choice.
Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular diseases, atopic dermatitis... From muscles to the skin, via the circuits of energy production by the cell (in the form of ATP), the products of glycation seem to be omnipresent.
It is, among other things, this observation which led to the conclusions of a study published in 2020 by Ji Yeon Hong's team (4): AGEs molecules would be a marker of comorbidities.

The role of diet and sport and their limits in the regulation of glycation

Unfortunately, diet isn't the only culprit. It is the joint action of a modern diet that is too rich but also of a lifestyle that is too poorly adapted which leads to the presence of too many AGEs.
Stress, lack of sleep, sports practiced incorrectly, air pollution are all factors that contribute to their production within the body.
This is explained by the gap between the speed at which our lifestyles have evolved over the last two millennia and the speed at which we evolve biologically.
Taking, in particular, fast sugars and the lack of consideration for your recovery windows during physical exercise contribute to the glycation process.
Furthermore, if the regular practice of a sport is useful for burning sugars (involved in glycation reactions within the body), its positive effect remains limited with regard to the palliation of glycation reactions in the body. body.
This was highlighted by the results of a study published in 2019 (5) by Joachim Nymann Hjerrild and his team, focusing on the case of skin glycation.
Even more problematic, this study raises an important point: the regulation of the diet, in terms of balance, would not have a significant effect on the attenuation of the glycation process either.

Consume milk thistle to build a “detox” diet

This is why using ingredients that are not part of traditional diets makes sense.
Alongside studies with similar conclusions, the research of Chi-Hao Wu (6) highlighted the direct benefit of consuming silymarin (extracted from milk thistle).
We learn, among other things, that the presence of silymarin reduces the concentration of AGEs molecules in tissues but that this also makes it possible to reduce the concentration of glycated albumin in the blood.
Unfortunately, deploying Chi-Hao Wu's solution is not necessarily within everyone's reach.
Indeed, the bioavailability of silymarin in a food bolus occurs through the cooking of milk thistle. As a result, the bioavailability of this active ingredient decreases both during the preparation of dishes and during the digestion process.
In other words: truly benefiting from the benefits of silymarin requires the implementation of targeted nutrition, going beyond simple consumption of milk thistle.
It is by understanding the potential of this active ingredient to improve your daily well-being that a few rare nutricosmetic brands, like MyPureSkin, have decided to create formulas based on silymarin.

Physical recovery and protection against glycation: a food supplement as a solution

Perfectly illustrating the MyPureSkin maxim “Science and nature at the heart of its formulas”, MyCollagenRepair is an innovative food supplement.
By combining piperine (active ingredient in black pepper), this nutricosmetic solves the problem of bioavailability of silymarin.
This initiative is not based on speculation but on an intimate understanding of the properties of these ingredients, based on studies such as the very recent one (2023), published by Tanya Ralli and her team (7).
This research has indeed made it possible to highlight both:

  • Increased availability to the body of consumed silymarin when combined with piperine;
  • The synergistic (joint) effect of these active ingredients, providing a significantly more notable physiological response.

In addition, the extent of MyPureSkin's expertise offers you another important guarantee: that of knowing what results to expect from its food supplements.

How does MyCollagenRepair increase physical recovery?

To understand some of the benefits of MyCollagenRepair, particularly with regard to physical recovery, it is enough to refer to the results of studies such as those of Nancy Vargas-Mendoza and her team, published in 2020 (8).
As the researcher points out, silymarin helps improve the reconstruction process following physical effort (particularly the quadriceps and the heart muscle).
Supplementing with silymarin alongside regular sports practice allows, among other things, to improve body remodeling over a fairly short period of time (8 weeks).
This process covers both the change in composition of tissues subjected to exercise (muscle/fat ratio in particular) and the improvement in the quality and size of the fibers after reconstruction (thus increasing the muscle strength available after recovery).
In view of the studies mentioned above, MyCollagenRepair also makes it possible to reduce AGEs molecules, which contributes to:

  • Reduce the risks of premature cellular disruption (which would lead to greater exposure to the risk of cancer);
  • Homogenize skin tissues (helping to improve skin quality);
  • Support the maintenance mechanisms of the mitochondria within cells (contributing to preserving the efficiency of the energy production process, leading to better vitality).

However, MyCollagenRepair is much more.

MyCollagenRepair: a premium detox food supplement

Focused on sports recovery and protection against glycation and oxidation, MyCollagenRepair also contributes to protecting the body against premature aging factors.
This becomes obvious when reading the composition of its formula which includes:

  • Marine collagen peptides whose high bioavailability helps rebuild your muscles and maintain youthful skin for longer (by reducing fine lines and wrinkles);
  • Hyaluronic acid whose capacity to carry nearly 1000 times its weight in water helps improve the hydration level of your body (especially your skin);
  • Vitamins C and E whose antioxidant properties make them valuable allies against free radicals (creating oxidative stress, itself a source of premature aging);
  • SOD (SuperOxide Dismutase) whose presence completes the antioxidant umbrella of MyCollagenRepair ingredients;
  • Bioperine, acting in synergy with silymarin;
  • Silymarin extracted from milk thistle;
  • Rosmarinic acid, whose deglycant properties work downstream of the antiglycant benefits of silymarin (which is placed upstream of the glycation process);
  • Coenzyme Q10 helping to preserve cellular energy production circuits to improve your vitality before, during and after exercise.

Based on ingredients of 100% natural origin, the MyCollagenRepair formula finds its ideal place in a daily well-being routine incorporating regular physical exercise.

Are you looking for an ally to support you in this regard? Make a choice that makes sense: start your MyCollagenRepair treatment.
