So often when individuals are looking for dietary supplements, they’re focused on finding products that increase their energy levels, enhance their athletic performance, or accelerate fat loss. While each of these products has their place, it’s rare that people ever consider using a supplement for the largest organ in their body — their skin.
Your skin isn’t just your outer covering, it also regulates body temperature, water, and lipid stores, and helps you navigate the host of environmental stresses you encounter on a daily basis including UV exposure, heat, injury, and infections.
Unfortunately, like everything else, the skin takes a beating and it doesn’t “bounce back” as well as it did in your youth. This reduced skin function is a combination of natural aging, UV exposure, declining collagen production, poor nutrition, and variations in hormone levels. Left untreated, this leaves your skin looking dull, wrinkling, and worn out.
Sure, you might be doing the “basics” to support skin health (bathing, hand cream, lip balm, etc.), but these measures really are temporary bandages. They don’t address the root of what it takes to sustain beautiful, vibrant skin through the years.
However, we have created the ultimate catch-all skin care supplement that restores vitality to your skin and ensures graceful aging in Steel Beauty.
What is Steel Beauty?
Steel Beauty is a complete skin, hair, and nail support aid that helps women and men maintain their youthful appearance. Containing clinical doses of research-validated ingredients, Steel Beauty provides the essential nutrients you need to enhance collagen production, improve skin hydration, and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Steel Beauty also helps strengthen hair, support cellular health and reduce oxidative stress, all of which contribute to graceful aging.
Why is Steel Beauty Better?
Steel Beauty takes a comprehensive approach to improving and supporting skin health. Unlike other skin care products, Steel Beauty doesn’t just treat superficial problems with your skin. It addresses the core of skin health — increasing collagen production and reducing the damaging effects of oxidative stress. On top of that, Steel Beauty also provides a range of essential vitamins including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Biotin which serves as powerful antioxidants and supports eye, hair, skin, and nail health.
What’s in Steel Beauty?
Collagen is a protein providing the primary structural component of your skin, tendons, and ligaments. Basically, collagen is the foundation for healthy looking skin; however, as you age, your body naturally starts to produce less collagen, leading to less supple looking skin and achy joints. for all of the connective tissues in the body, including skin, ligaments, and tendons.
Typically individuals will supplement with some form of collagen protein, but most of those generic collagen supplements have no clinical studies demonstrating benefits in humans.
That’s where BioCell comes in.
BioCell is a naturally-derived complex of Type 2 Hydrolyzed Collagen + Hyaluronic Acid + Chondroitin Sulfate proven in human studies to reduce connective and skeletal muscle tissue damage as well as decrease inflammation induced by exercise. 
Other research indicates that BioCell also is beneficial for resisting the signs of aging and it may also improve circulation , which delivers a greater supply of oxygen and nutrients to your skin, keeping you looking young and vibrant.
Linoleic acid is an essential omega-6 fatty acid that plays a critical role in skin health. Research has shown that individuals suffering from acne have low levels of the essential fat, but when those individuals suffering from acne, supplement with linoleic acid, they’re able to significantly reduce the appearance of acne by 25%! [3,4]
The reason linoleic acid is such a powerful skin beautifying agent has to do with compounds called eicosanoids, which play a major role in inflammatory and immune responses in our skin.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea is naturally rich in catechins, potent antioxidants shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anticancer effects. Research has also shown that the polyphenols naturally occurring in green tea exhibit significant antioxidant, chemopreventive, and immunomodulatory effects that protect the skin. [5,6] Steel Beauty includes a green tea extract standardized for 80% catechins and 50% EGCG, the most potent catechin in green tea.
Salmon nasal cartilage has been traditionally consumed in Japan as an all-natural remedy to support joint health and integrity due to its high proteoglycan content. Proteoglycans are a type of protein in connective tissues including your skin, bone, and cartilage, where they join with collagen, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid, and other glycoproteins.
Juvecol is a patented extract of salmon nasal cartilage, naturally high in these proteoglycans proven in human trials to improve skin condition, especially skin elasticity, as well as joint health due to its immunomodulatory effect. [7,8,9]
Resveratrol gained prominence several years ago when it was discovered that the red wine polyphenol could improve cholesterol levels. Concentrated in the skins and seeds of grapes and berries, resveratrol functions as a powerful antioxidant in the body and also offers anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial benefits. [10,11] Studies have shown that resveratrol can protect against UVB-mediated skin damage and offer some unique anti-aging benefits, too! [11,12]
