Plant-Based Antioxidants can Retard Wrinkles Successfully

A new study conducted at the Hebrew University Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Quality Sciences found that plant based antioxidants can impede wrinkles successfully.

The study was made by Dr. Orit Bossi. She succeeded in isolating a plant-based antioxidant that delays the aging process by countering the breakdown of collagen fibers in the skin.

Dr. Bossi said, “A problem with many of the commercial antioxidants found today in the market that are said to retard the aging process is that they oxidize quickly and therefore their efficiency declines with time.” Adding to it she said, “Vitamin C, for example, oxidizes rapidly and is sensitive to high temperatures. This is also true of the antioxidant EGCG which is found in green tea, and vitamin E. As opposed to these, the antioxidant which I used in my research is able to withstand high temperatures, is soluble in water, and does not oxidize easily and thus remains effective over time.”

However she did not reveal the plant or herb which she used for her study as the research is still not patented.
