Ergothioneine: Mushroom Magic for Skin

November 7, 2010

Ergothioneine protects the skin from oxidative and DNA damage.   It is an antioxidant, protecting the mitochondrial membrane against oxidation.   It will transfer fatty acids into the mitochondria to help use oxygen efficiently and to produce more energy.  It also protects DNA from the oxidation of guanine.  Ergothioneine reduces TNF-Alpha (Tumor Necrosis Factor), a stress signal cytokine.

It is also one of five primary anti-aging ingredients found in Peels To The People’s Cell Youth Actif.  After a decade of research and multiple patents, CYA is now available from PTTP.  This exciting gel-like serum in an pump container fully compliments my other Peels products intended to correct cellular damage:  Vitamin C Intensive Serum and Retinol Resurfacing Complex.
