Ascorbic Acid As an antioxidant, Vitamin C scavenges and destroys reactive oxidizing agents and other free radicals. Because of this ability, it provides important protection against damage induced by UV radiation. Vitamin C also improves skin elasticity, decreases wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis, reduces erythema, promotes wound healing and suppresses cutaneous pigmentation.
Zinc Sulfate Zinc boosts the immune system at the cellular level, increases T-cells, is antibacterial, accelerates healing of wounds and is essential for cell growth. Zinc is also partially responsible for collagenase, a process of removing old stiffened collagen fibers so new collagen can be created.
L-tyrosine is one of the 20 amino acids that are used by cells to synthesize proteins. When combined with L-ascorbic acid, it will encourage fibroblast activity to increase collagen production.
