DracoBelle™ Nu is a natural beauty-from-within ingredient with a new approach to skin rejuvenation. It is made from the Moldavian Dragonhead and contains high amounts of antioxidants, especially the flavonoid glucuronides. DracoBelle™ Nu activates the intrinsic anti-aging and longevity pathways AMPK (activated protein kinase) and FOXO (Forkhead box protein O). This triggers collagen and DNA repair, as well as supports cellular defense and cell detoxification.
AMPK is an energy sensor, which can be activated by caloric restriction or exercising. Its level declines naturally during aging or with nutrient overload. AMPK mediates FOXO activity, a key regulator of various anti-aging mechanisms. In vitro results show that DracoBelle™ Nu boost FOXO and AMPK by three- respectively fourfold, showing its ability to impact the longevity pathway.
In a clinical study, parameters such as skin moisture, elasticity and density were measured. They improved significantly when analyzed after taking 200 mg of DracoBelle™ Nu daily over a period of 8 weeks. Volunteers in this study clearly noticed a higher skin hydration level when compared to the initial condition. DracoBelle™ Nu also demonstrates the ability to boost collagen gene expression, resulting in a significant increase of collagen in skin tissues.
DracoBelle™ Nu has been specifically developed for nutraceuticals and functional food. This vegan powder product is highly water soluble and has a weak lemon-balm taste. Many different applications, such as capsules, gummies, powder mixes and beverage shots within the anti-aging and beauty from within space are possible.
