PravENAC™ is a proprietary food supplement specifically formulated to help improve skin. The active ingredients lactoferrin, aloe vera and zinc gluconate provide antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to achieve and maintain normal skin.
Lactoferrin is produced by a proprietary process that derives a bioactive complex from whey rich in the lactoferrin fraction. Milk’s many bioactive components have specific physiological effects to support a healthy complexion from the inside.
Lactoferrin is present naturally in exocrine secretions that are commonly exposed to normal flora: milk, tears, nasal exudate, bronchial mucus, gastrointestinal fluids and saliva. lactoferrin is expressed in polymorphonuclear leukocytes and is secreted by various circulating immune cells at infected sites. A primary function of lactoferrin is scavenging free iron in body fluids and inflamed sites to suppress free radical-mediated damage (much like an antioxidant) and diminish availability of the element to invading microbes.
Lactoferrin works in two ways. Firstly it inhibits the growth of propionibacterium which is present on most people’s skin and responsible for blemishes, thereby lessening the number of new skin irritants forming. Secondly its anti-inflammatory properties mean that the size of blemishes is reduced and the blemishes health quicker, resulting in a smoother complexion.
Yes –lactoferrin helps repair damaged cells caused by blemishes
No, unfortunately there is currently no natural ‘cure’ for acne. However, lactoferrin will help by reducing the bacteria associated with skin blemishes through its anti-microbial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
