What is it that makes some people look naturally young for their age?
The answer lies in a study*, conducted by Nu Skin® and third party scientists, which has revealed that we all have an internal source of ageing, an enzyme presented on the surface of our cells. This invisible enzyme, called arNOX, increases very quickly and accelerates the ageing process. Moreover, it keeps increasing as we age and vary from individual to individual. Consequently, unlike exposure to the sun and pollutants, there is no way to hide from the damages caused by arNOX.
Another study** carried out by Stanford University (USA) has shown that individuals who have low levels of arNOX are clinically graded to look an average of seven years younger than their actual age. While those who have high levels look an average of seven years older. This implies that low activity levels of this enzyme may result in looking visibly younger.
Nu Skin® found the solution to fight against this enzyme by introducing ageLOC™, a product designed to slow visible signs of ageing at the source.
