Air Pollution is Accelerating the Aging Process

Air Pollution is Accelerating the Aging Process

Air is essential for human life, but the increasing rate of pollution worldwide is also accelerating the aging process for billions of people, making them appear older than their chronological age, damaging them internally at the cellular level, and affecting the brain through oxidative stress.

The effects of vehicle exhaust fumes and miniscule particles in the air too small to see without magnification are being linked to accelerated aging in people living in major cities and many of those same metropolises have traffic-related pollution levels that exceed those established by the World Health Organization (WHO). The increased levels of pollution are resulting in the outward signs of aging, along with increased levels of lung and cardiac disease.

Signs of skin damage and aging due to the free radicals of pollution are being seen in younger populations and that doesn’t bode well for individuals in middle age and beyond. Those who receive repetitive or extended exposure to high levels of pollutants have also demonstrated a higher incidence of acne, inflammatory skin conditions, and skin cancer.*

The particles easily collect on exposed areas of the body and while human skin has a natural biological shield against free radicals, the type of air pollution being encountered can pass through the skin to cause damage to cells and overwhelm the body’s natural ability to neutralize free radicals.*

The very small particles found in air pollution result in darkening of the skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and are also inhaled where they find their way throughout the body. Compounding the problem is:

  • Stress
  • Poor diets
  • Coffee and caffeine drinks (depletes fluid levels)
  • Lack of sleep
  • Alcohol use
  • Some skin care products (that disrupt the skin’s protective barrier)

All of those elements contribute to oxidative stress, but when combined with increasing levels of air pollution it has a powerful and profound effect that leads to premature aging of the skin. To help combat the situation, dermatologists indicate one of the best ways to preserve the skin is through a diet that provides the nutrients needed to foster the body’s ability to manufacture glutathione, the body’s natural antioxidant.*

To provide the body with the essential elements required for optimal glutathione production, RxQ Antioxidant Complex by Schoenwetter, LLC has key nutrients that may aid in minimizing the signs of aging induced by air pollution. The propriety formula is the result of decades of research utilizing the best science available to aid in mitigating the signs of premature aging.*
