Participants who took NOVOS Core for 6 months all showed improvements in skin firmness as measured by a medical device known as an indentometer.
An indentometer is a device that measures skin suppleness and firmness. Besides these objective measurements, participants also mentioned noticeable improvements in their skin, such as improved elasticity, smoothness, and firmness.
The results of our skin health study
The study was a small pilot study, done in 4 patients. The device used to test is a state-of-the-art device used for scientific studies.
Grey bars show skin firmness before taking NOVOS (the higher the bar, the less firm the skin is). Orange bars show skin firmness after taking NOVOS 6 months (the lower the bar, the firmer the skin).)
NOVOS users saw a minimum improvement of 12%, max of 40% and an average of 22%. NOVOS is planning to conduct additional, larger studies with more participants.
The ingredients that make a difference
These results do not come as a surprise, given NOVOS Core contains various longevity ingredients that are also known to improve skin health, such hyaluronic acid, alpha ketoglutarate, glycine, vitamin C, and glucosamine.
Oral hyaluronic acid improves skin health and reduces wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a component of the extracellular matrix, the “glue” that keeps skin cells sticking together.
Alpha ketoglutarate improves skin stem cell health, and plays a role in collagen production. Alpha ketoglutarate also works together with vitamin C, given vitamin C also improves collagen production. Additionally, alpha ketoglutarate and vitamin C both work synergistically to improve the epigenome, including that of skin cells. Alpha ketoglutarate can also extend lifespan.
These are some examples of how ingredients in NOVOS improve skin health.
Not just signs of aging, but the underlying causes
However, what is even more important is that all these ingredients inhibit fundamental aging mechanisms and have shown to extend lifespan in various species.
In other words, NOVOS Core is the only skin supplement that actually addresses the root causes of aging, including skin aging.
