A stable derivative of glucosamine, N-acetyl glucosamine (NAG) is a precursor for the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, an integral part of the connective tissue that holds cells together and supports cell membrane structure. Through the stimulation of hyaluronic acid synthesis, NAG is known to improve skin hydration, promote wound healing, reduce hyperpigmentation, and decrease fine lines and wrinkles via topical use. It also has important anti-inflammatory functions, making this ingredient highly effective at improving skin health and function. Finally, glucosamine acts on the linkages that hold skin cells together directly without damaging them. This results is an improved ability for skin to naturally shed dead skin cells.
Intrinsic aging, also known as chronological or natural aging, refers to changes in the structure and function of skin that occur as we age naturally. Beginning around out mid-20s, physiological changes cause collagen production to slow and skin to loose its elasticity. Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly, and the turnover of new cells begins to slow. Intrinsic aging results in skin that is thinner, less elastic, and finely lined. Additionally, changes in hormone levels may reduce the amount of oil produced, resulting in dry, flaky skin. Also see Extrinsic Aging.

The NutrientReservoir is Apriori Beautyâ€™s patent-pending combination of ingredients designed to protect and nourish skin by addressing 4 core influences of skin aging â€” oxidative stress, cell longevity, hormonal fluctuation, and cellular energy production. These ingredients, which include super antioxidants, longevity gene modifiers, endocrine system modulators, and mitochondrial core energy activators, are delivered to the skin internally through LifeoxylinÂ® Cellular Defense Elixir, and externally through CelloxylinÂ® anti-aging skin care. Because healthy skin is beautiful skin, the NutrientReservoir helps improve skinâ€™s appearance by working at the cellular level to improve skin structure and function. Also see Antioxidants, Longevity Gene Modifiers, Endocrine System Modulators, and Mitochondrial Core Energy Activators.
Nutrigenomics is an emerging field of study that seeks to understand the molecular relationship between nutrition and gene expression, with the goal of improving overall health through nutrition. By understanding how specific nutrients influence gene expression and cellular function, it is possible to make dietary that help optimize cellular structure and function and contribute to homeostasis. Apriori Beauty has utilized this approach to develop the Cellular Age Advantage, the first ever internal + external preventative approach to anti-aging skincare. CelloxylinÂ® and LifeoxylinÂ® deliver ingredients that address aging on a cellular level, resulting in improved skin health and appearance.
