GNA's Red-Orange Complex - Skin Protection from Within

Red Orange Complex is a standardized extract derived from Red or Blood Oranges (Citrus sinensis). The pigmented oranges have crimson and blood-coloured flesh, growing in the particular area surrounding Mount Etna volcano in Italy.

Derived from Red or Blood Oranges (Citrus sinensis), this product helps with:

  • Reduce Skin Sensitivity to UV Radiation
  • Supports healthy skin before, during, and after you spend time outdoors
  • Prevention of cutaneous damage generated by UV sun exposure
  • Improves the homogeneity of skin tanning
  • Decrease oxidative stress in subjects with compromised anti-oxidative defenses such as smokers, sportsmen, diabetics, and people exposed to pollution.

GNA Naturals Red Orange Complex (ROC) is the perfect ingredient for ‘skin protection from within’ dietary supplements. Skin is the interface between the body and the environment. It acts as a barrier to the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation and exogenous chemicals.

ROC supports healthy skin before, during, and after you spend time outdoors. It enables skin to be evenly tanned and protects it against sun damage and photo-aging. As we age everyday, even low ultraviolet exposure takes its toll on our skin health. ROC’s strong anti-oxidative properties have a positive impact on the whole body, helping to keep it healthy and slow down the aging process.

A recent clinical study has demonstrated the benefits of red orange intake and its protective effects on skin from UV-induced skin damage. 

  • Addition of ROC in keratinocyte cell culture confirms usefulness in prevention of cutaneous damage generated by UV sun exposure.
  • Oral ROC supplementation counteracts skin hyperpigmentation of solar lentigo induced by repeated UV exposure and improves the homogeneity of skin tanning.
  • Strong antioxidant activity confirmed in several clinical studies.
  • ROC is able to decrease oxidative stress in subjects with compromised anti-oxidative defenses such as smokers, sportsmen, diabetics, and people exposed to pollution.

Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity’ Review Article: Red Orange: Experimental Models and Epidemiological Evidence of Its Benefits on Human Health

This article, Protective effect of red orange extract supplementation against UV-induced skin damages: photoaging and solar lentigines,” it discusses the effects of ROC supplements and the exposure of the skin to solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes oxidative damages that result in clinical and pathological changes, contributing to premature skin aging. Hyperpigmented, also known as age spots, are one of the most visible alterations in skin photoaging.

In another article, “Oxidative stress in handball players: effect of supplementation with a red orange extract,” it talks about how athletes undergo intense physical exercise and this represents a condition that is often associated with increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and free radicals in various tissues. Therefore, supplementation of antioxidants such as the Red-Orange Complex (ROC) may be desirable to reduce oxidative stress and provide a larger protective margin against its possible consequences.

 

CONCLUSIONS:

In conclusion, although preliminary, our results clearly demonstrate that dietary supplementation with the ROC (which is endowed with strong antioxidant capacity) is able to decrease oxidative stress and thus might protect against its short- and long-term health consequences in athletes engaged in regular training programs. Interestingly, besides being inexpensive, treatment with the ROC should have the additional advantage of being free of side effects.

GNA Naturals Red-Orange Complex is truly a great “skin protection from within” dietary supplement. As discussed in numerous articles, specifically the two mentioned in this post, it is clinically proven that ROC helps significantly with:

  • Reduce skin sensitivity to UV radiation
  • Prevention of cutaneous damage generated by UV sun exposure like hyper-pigmentation in the skin.
  • Decrease oxidative stress in subjects with compromised anti-oxidative defenses such as smokers, sportsmen, diabetics, and people exposed to pollution.
