It is well known by all that, with the passage of time, the skin and, especially, that of the face, loses shine and freshness, and then the first wrinkles appear. It is not a problem of the elderly, but also of the not so young. After the age of 30, the loss of collagen can already begin to be seen in the form of fine wrinkles.
So how can we slow down the passage of time and have fewer of those dreaded wrinkles?
We cannot fight it without the factor less mentioned by the cosmetics industry, since it is a cheap and easily obtained component: vitamin K.
It is the essential factor for blood clotting and the healing process. If vitamin K is in deficit, the body’s repair processes will be compromised and areas that do not complete it will appear. There a future wrinkle or skin fold will appear, since we live in a continuous process of tissue replacement and repair.
More emphasis is placed on substances such as collagen, hyaluronic acid, fibrinogen or magnesium, but very little mention is made of the great heroin, vitamin K, which together with E and D form the anti-aging trident.
At the request of Internet users, I will start a series of talks on how we can curb the signs of old age. Thus, we will declassify some of the hidden tricks of the famous:
Signs of vitamin K deficiency: Bleeding gums, easy bruising and bruising, presence of spider veins and microvarices, premature aging, hair loss, muscle weakness, fatigue that does not resolve, loss of muscle mass, weak bones and ligaments, hardening cartilage, frequent colds or flu, headache, slow recovery from diseases, anemia and facial wrinkles and folds, among others.
It is true that the intestine can synthesize small amounts of vitamin K, but the passage of time and stress weaken the intestinal flora and its production decreases. The amount of vitamin K can be assessed by direct or indirect blood tests, hair analysis or by the patient’s clinic and the experience of the doctor or professional in anti-aging techniques.
How to get vitamin K?
In the diet we must eat green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, broccoli or cabbage. Take vegetables and fruits, especially those of the forest such as plums, blueberries and grapes. Fish and egg yolk have gentle amounts of vitamin K. Another contribution could be red meat, but you have to be consistent with its use.
To those who do not eat so many salads, I suggest supplementing with vitamin K, but with certified products prescribed by a health professional.
Vitamin K, together with E and D, form the anti-aging trident.
