While you all laugh, they chuckle their way to the bank.

I assume we are talking SOD as in superoxide dismutase, right? So, given that it is an enzyme, MW about 30kD, how does it get into cells? Remember all that lipid peroxidation stuff happens in cells, within membranes. Principally in mitochondria. The oxidative damage itself occurs within cells, not outside. Outside of cells SOD is worthless.

That would be the ingredient thanks for the answer Dr. J....we have a bad habit of laughing at the absurd claims, sadly many are suckered by all the celebrities endorsing, who I am sure are getting "special" procedures/treatments to maintain that youthful look!

Wonder kelp. Gotta love the name.

Adv Food Nutr Res. 2011;64:85-96.
Physical, chemical, and biological properties of wonder kelp-laminaria.
Kim SK, Bhatnagar I.
Source

Department of Chemistry, Pukyong National University, Busan, Republic of Korea; Marine Bioprocess Research Center, Pukyong National University, Busan, Republic of Korea.
Abstract

Laminaria is a kelp that finds its place in the brown algae family. It has been an area of study for past many years, and its wonderful biological properties have always attracted medical professionals and researchers to explore more and more from this wonder kelp. The constituents of Laminaria include iodine, potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron. Iodine compounds, TEA-hydroiodide in particular, are great lipolytic agents as they stimulate lipase activity. Laminarins on the other hand are used as a tumor angiogenic blocker. This genus of the kelps is also rich in algin, a high molecular weight polysaccharide that forms viscous colloidal solutions or gels in water leading to the use of kelp derivatives as bulk laxatives. It has great applications in cosmeceutical science, as well as some antibacterial properties have also been assigned to Laminaria. A deeper insight into the physical, biological, and chemical properties of this wonder kelp would lead to further exploitation of Laminaria for medicinal and cosmeceutical purpose.

LAMINARIA SIDE EFFECTS & SAFETY
Laminaria is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken by mouth. It contains iodine in amounts that are high enough to harm the thyroid, the gland that uses iodine to make hormones. The average laminaria-based supplement might contain as much as 1000 mcg of iodine. Taking in more than 150 mcg of iodine per day can cause a normal thyroid to become overactive or underactive, or make an overactive thyroid worse. Some laminaria products also contain significant amounts of arsenic, a chemical element that is poisonous.

OK - laminaria is out - gold is in.

If it doesn't reduce wrinkles it will at least gold plate them.

Anti-glycation effect of gold nanoparticles on collagen.
Kim JH, Hong CO, Koo YC, Choi HD, Lee KW.
Source

Department of Food Bioscience and Technology, College of Life Sciences and Biotechnology, Korea University, Seoul, Republic of Korea.
Abstract

Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) have been reported to exhibit a variety of biological effects including anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant activities. The extent of an in vitro glycation reaction mixture of collagen and glycolaldehyde was assayed to investigate the inhibition of glycolaldehye-derived advanced glycation end products (glycol-AGEs) formation with GNPs in collagen, which is a major protein component of the human dermis. GNP-treated collagen showed significantly less glycation (56.3 ± 4.2%) than an untreated glycation control. Moreover, GNP-treated glycation in a collagen lattice model significantly decreased the AGEs distribution in the model system. Taken together, these results suggest that GNPs have the potential for use in the prevention of glycation-induced skin aging.

Linking functional decline of telomeres, mitochondria and stem cells during ageing.
Sahin E, Depinho RA.
Source

Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Science, Department of Medical Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA.
Abstract

The study of human genetic disorders and mutant mouse models has provided evidence that genome maintenance mechanisms, DNA damage signalling and metabolic regulation cooperate to drive the ageing process. In particular, age-associated telomere damage, diminution of telomere 'capping' function and associated p53 activation have emerged as prime instigators of a functional decline of tissue stem cells and of mitochondrial dysfunction that adversely affect renewal and bioenergetic support in diverse tissues. Constructing a model of how telomeres, stem cells and mitochondria interact with key molecules governing genome integrity, 'stemness' and metabolism provides a framework for how diverse factors contribute to ageing and age-related disorders

I did ask in all sincerity. The infomercial is cheesy, but I did not know anything about the effectiveness of the active, SOD.

Thanks Dr J -- good to know about it's limitations.

SKIN DEEP
Gold Face Cream: A Costly Leap of Faith
By JENNIFER A. KINGSON
Published: May 24, 2010

CHRISTINE VALMY’S Golden Collagen facial mask is a visual and tactile delight: gelatinous, face-shaped and thoroughly golden, it arrives in a sheer plastic enclosure that invites you to squish it the way that bubble wrap begs you to pop it.

I couldn’t wait to put it on and lie down for the recommended time. Cool and slimy, it feels like Jell-O on the face.

The rash that erupted the next day did not.

They wanted research results, now they have them (note the older date of the NYT story).

Gold is remarkable inert, nontoxic. Unlike copper. I've got it - we will do gold peptides. GHK-Au. Dr.P will be so jealous!

O.K., Gold in moderation isn't harmful, but it is at an all time high (or close) so is it all that beneficial to our skin considering the price?
BTW Watch out you may be the next with a troll page on Dr. P's site. Bad Grin

Quote:
Human Consumption of Gold

Metallic gold is used by the alchemists to prepare a liquid that they affirm will restore youth when drunk." -Agricola, De natura fossillium, 1546.

In what ways is gold consumed? About 75% of the gold produced in the world's mines goes to jewelry production. This is one meaning of the term "consumption". More surprising are the many ways in which gold actually finds its way into the human body.

Gold crowns are still the best. Although rapidly being replaced with less-expensive alternatives, dental amalgams containing high percentages of gold are still desirable as crowns. Gold is a soft metal, and its use in a crown lessens the stress put on the opposing tooth in the act of chewing. Modern porcelain crowns are much more brittle than gold, and are not likely to last the decades that gold crowns can.

Gold also has medical uses. An isotope of gold, 198-Au, which has a half-life of 2.7 days, is used in treating some cancers and other diseases, and also as a tracer within the human body. A compound containing gold known as disodium aurothiomalate, is used in an injection as a treatment for arthritis. Auranofin, a complex organic molecule, is used in the treatment of some cases of rheumatoid arthritis.

Serve gold at your next party. Gold in the form of extremely fine leaf (a few atoms in thickness) has been added to certain liqueurs from Eastern Europe, such as Goldwasser. This gives the liquid a sparkle in the glass, as the fine bits of gold catch the light as they float suspended. Pure gold leaf has a long tradition in cuisine both in Europe and the Far East. Exotic dishes are given the ultimate exotic presentation, wrapped in 99.9% pure gold leaf so unbelievably thin, that the gold itself is edible.

Although consumption of gold is essentially harmless in small amounts, there is a gold toxicity that is known from its use in treating arthritis. Skin rash is the most common result of excessive consumption of gold for medicinal purposes. Gastrointestinal distress can from time to time result from excessive ingestion of gold compounds.

A commonly used antidote is Dimercaprol, HSCH2CHSHCH2OH, also called BAL (British Anti-Lewisite). BAL forms a stable complex with gold, rendering it physiologically ineffective and easy to eliminate from the body. Certain people develop a mild rash from wearing gold jewelry, although this phenomenon is not entirely understood today. This dermatitis may be caused by residual radioactivity in the minor alloys in the jewelry.

Gold can be harmful in other ways. Of course, the most harmful aspects of gold to humans have nothing to do with actual gold consumption. More dangerous is that wide range of disorders, known collectively as "gold fever" (see Bogart, Humphrey, "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.").

In what ways is gold consumed? About 75% of the gold produced in the world's mines goes to jewelry production. This is one meaning of the term "consumption". More surprising are the many ways in which gold actually finds its way into the human body.

Gold crowns are still the best. Although rapidly being replaced with less-expensive alternatives, dental amalgams containing high percentages of gold are still desirable as crowns. Gold is a soft metal, and its use in a crown lessens the stress put on the opposing tooth in the act of chewing. Modern porcelain crowns are much more brittle than gold, and are not likely to last the decades that gold crowns can.

Gold also has medical uses. An isotope of gold, 198-Au, which has a half-life of 2.7 days, is used in treating some cancers and other diseases, and also as a tracer within the human body. A compound containing gold known as disodium aurothiomalate, is used in an injection as a treatment for arthritis. Auranofin, a complex organic molecule, is used in the treatment of some cases of rheumatoid arthritis.

Serve gold at your next party. Gold in the form of extremely fine leaf (a few atoms in thickness) has been added to certain liqueurs from Eastern Europe, such as Goldwasser. This gives the liquid a sparkle in the glass, as the fine bits of gold catch the light as they float suspended. Pure gold leaf has a long tradition in cuisine both in Europe and the Far East. Exotic dishes are given the ultimate exotic presentation, wrapped in 99.9% pure gold leaf so unbelievably thin, that the gold itself is edible.

Although consumption of gold is essentially harmless in small amounts, there is a gold toxicity that is known from its use in treating arthritis. Skin rash is the most common result of excessive consumption of gold for medicinal purposes. Gastrointestinal distress can from time to time result from excessive ingestion of gold compounds.

A commonly used antidote is Dimercaprol, HSCH2CHSHCH2OH, also called BAL (British Anti-Lewisite). BAL forms a stable complex with gold, rendering it physiologically ineffective and easy to eliminate from the body. Certain people develop a mild rash from wearing gold jewelry, although this phenomenon is not entirely understood today. This dermatitis may be caused by residual radioactivity in the minor alloys in the jewelry.

Gold can be harmful in other ways. Of course, the most harmful aspects of gold to humans have nothing to do with actual gold consumption. More dangerous is that wide range of disorders, known collectively as "gold fever" (see Bogart, Humphrey, "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.").

Remember, its nanogold. How much can a few molecules cost? Lets say 1/1,000,000th of an ounce = one dose. Gold is at 1160 per oz. So lets say 12 cents per dose for the gold. Dollar a week.

O.K., Gold in moderation isn't harmful, but it is at an all time high (or close) so is it all that beneficial to our skin considering the price?
BTW Watch out you may be the next with a troll page on Dr. P's site. Bad Grin

Chantecaille charges a pretty penny for their nano gold products
