Dull skin needs energy to regain its health and vitality. The part of cells that convert the food we eat into this energy, the mitochondria, is not fail-proof. When mitochondria are not functioning properly, they can cause disease and accelerate aging. Scientists in the U.S. and Asia have discovered that polysaccharides (chains of linked sugar molecules) produce dramatic effects on the efficiency of mitochondria.
MD Perricone has worked closely with the these scientists to develop an optimal peptide blend to nourish skin and enhance health and vitality. The blend also maintains blood sugar and insulin levels and enhances absorption of food. All result in a more healthy body and a glowing complexion.
With a combination of nutrients specifically designed to support mental and physical energy, the Polysaccharide Peptide Blend (PEP) combines the power of Polysaccharides with:
- Flaxseed Lingans. Healthful fibers that help to control blood sugar and insulin, help improve gastrointestinal health, and enhance antixoxidant power and mitochondrial energy-generating capacity.
- Amino Acids and polypeptides. Necessary for making the proteins in connective tissues and have beneficial effects on the energy production of cells.
- The 8 essential vitamins and minerals. Provide particular benefits to the body’s antioxidant and tissue repair systems, such as improved intestinal health.
Benefits of the PEP supplement:
- Reduces inflammation throughout the body
- Increases cells’ uptake of glucose, thus reducing insulin spikes
- Improves physical and mental energy, circulation, and the production of fibroblasts (tissue-building cells)
Before your first meal, mix one packet a day with a lukewarm beverage to promote energy and metabolism in the body. Refrigerate after opening the package.
