In fact, the acai berry is known to contain ten times as many antioxidant vitamins as grapes and twice as many as blueberries.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid is an anti-oxidant. It is vital for energy production in cells. It helps prevent wrinkling of skin and is an anti-inflammatory. Alpha Lipoic acid is a potent and versatile antioxidant. It inhibits cross-linking which is the formation of chemical bridges between proteins or other large molecules. Cross-linking contributes to the aging process by causing hardening of arteries, wrinkling of the skin and stiffening of joints. This amazing substance helps to combat fine lines and wrinkles. It also treats scars and can help to enhance the effect of other antioxidants to protect the skin against free radicals and give the skin a healthy glow.
Beta Carotene (Vitamin A)
Beta Carotene aids in improving skin health and vision. It is also known to enhance immunity and ward off cancer. When it comes to nutritional supplementation, and antioxidants in particular, beta carotene is an anti-aging micronutrient of the highest order, standing firmly alongside Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and the mineral Selenium in its ability to reduce illness, improve overall skin-health, and increase longevity.
Biotin (B-7)
Biotin promotes health of bone marrow, nerve tissue, skin and hair. Biotin has an essential role in helping the body metabolize proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. These roles in metabolism help the body produce energy more efficiently, which may help reduce feelings of fatigue that are caused by metabolism problems. Furthermore, Biotin is also very beneficial to the health of the hair, skin, and nails; as a result, many people see a noticeable improvement in hair, skin, and nails when they begin taking a biotin supplement.

Coenzyme Q10
CoQ10 is not just good for the heart, it is also a powerful antioxidant, and protects the body from excess free radical damage. In most people over 30 CoQ10 levels begin to drop. Studies have shown that CoQ10 supplements may help increase collagen and elastin in the skin, and help repair damaged skin cells. CoQ10 is an ingredient in many skincare creams that claim to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and protect the skin from aging. CoQ10 may be more effective than other topical vitamin treatments because it is a small molecule that can relatively easily penetrate into skin cells.
Copper
Copper plays a key role in the development and maintenance of healthy skin; in fact, the body needs copper to produce the skin pigment melanin, which colors the skin, hair, and eyes. When hair turns gray due to copper deficiency, taking copper supplements reverses the process. Copper also helps regulate the function of lysyl oxidase, an enzyme needed for the creation of collagen. Many topical creams designed to firm and restore the skin's elasticity now contain copper peptides as an active ingredient.
DMAE
DMAE is best known for brain activity enhancement, but by stopping arachidonic acid from being manufactured in the body, it can also help to prevent wrinkles from being formed. High concentrations of DMAE are found in fish such as salmon and sardines. The human brain also has a small amount of DMAE inside it which helps the brain to perform several crucial functions.
Folic Acid
Folic Acid is partially responsible for production of hemoglobin in red blood cells. It decreases risk of heart disease and stroke as well as decreases cancer risk. It is responsible for cellular function and repair, and it is also needed for energy production and a strong immune system.

In addition, as an inhibitor of tyrosinase activation, it inhibits melanin production and is useful in treatment of disorders of hyper pigmentation.
Grape seed extract
This is an anti-oxidant and an anti-inflammation nutrient. Besides being a powerhouse antioxidant, it has the ability to strengthen blood vessels and enhance circulation. When it comes to youthful skin, grape seed can help strengthen collagen. Grape seed extract is added to some skin creams to make the skin more supple and reduce fine lines and winkles. Another benefit of grape seed extract is that it acts as an anti-inflammatory. It blocks the release of some prostaglandins, which are chemicals that produce inflammation and pain.
Hyaluronic Acid
This amazing nutrient is responsible for tissue repair, and it hydrates the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG), which is a substance that attaches to collagen and elastin to form cartilage. HA not only helps keep the cartilage that cushions joints strong and flexible, but also helps increase supplies of joint-lubricating synovial fluid. Cosmetic products containing hyaluronic acid hydrate the skin, allowing it to appear smoother and more radiant. Clinical studies have shown that it also helps wounds heal more quickly, and it can reduce the appearance of both old and new scars.
Iron
Iron makes hemoglobin and helps copper metabolize so that copper can be effective in making skin glow radiantly. Iron prevents fatigue and promotes good skin tone. Iron also increases resistance to stress and disease.

It has been shown to have caloric restriction properties which help aid in weight loss. Resveratrol applications prevented the skin cancer development in mice treated with a carcinogen. The strongest evidence of anti-cancer action of resveratrol exists for tumors it can come into direct contact with, such as skin and gastrointestinal tract tumors. Resveratrol given to aging mice reduced their cataracts, strengthened their bones, improved coordination and enhanced their health in several other ways.
Selenium
The "super-protector", selenium fights cancer and specifically, skin cancer. This nutrient fosters healing of the skin and helps protect the heart, blood vessels, skin, joints, and other parts of the body that are prone to inflammation. It has also been found that people living in parts of the United States with low soil levels of selenium experience a higher occurrence of non-melanoma skin cancer.
