The acronym ACE is generally associated today with the well-known multivitamin juice that contains 3 different vitamins: A, C and E. This vitamin cocktail includes three nourishing juices: orange juice- rich in vitamin C and folic acid-, carrot juice- source of α-carotene, β-carotene, vitamin A, and important antioxidants-, and lemon juice – highly rich in vitamins A, C and E. The citruses combined with carrots contain vital substances for cellular metabolism.
Excellent for your skin
There are plenty of benefits in vitamins: they are in fact essential for living and growing. Since the human body cannot produce vitamins, with a few exceptions, a daily intake of vitamins through a dietary source is recommended. Let’s analyse the potentials of the A+C+E multivitamin complex in the field of cosmetics. Vitamin A, also called retinol, improves skin hydration, regulating cell growth and regenerating tissues. Therefore, skin becomes more resistant and toned, and it also looks younger. Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is one of the vitamins that help to keep skin healthy and glowy: it is a cofactor in the synthesis of collagen, one of the proteins needed to form the ‘skeleton’ that support tissues. Vitamin C makes skin more flexible and toned, prevents the formation of age spots and softens existing ones. Like vitamin C, vitamin E or tocopherol is an important antioxidant. It improves skin hydration and keeps skin supple. It protects against the harmful effect of free radicals when you are exposed to ultraviolet rays and prevents the formation of wrinkles and sun spots.
Where on Earth does it come from?
Before 1934 there were not many known multivitamins or multimineral supplements. People found it hard to know if their daily diets contain enough nutrients or not. It was Carl Rehnborg, a pioneer in the history of nutrition, who while living in China during the 1920s observed widespread undernourishment and diseases and made a correlation between what people ate and their overall health. In the countryside, where fresh fruits and vegetables were plentiful, people were much healthier overall. In the cities, where people ate far more sugar, fat and salt, Carl met people who suffered from important diseases such as scurvy. In 1934 and to respond to this need, Carl decided to create the first multivitamin/ multimineral supplement for sale in North America. Rehnborg was sure that the key to health was the conservation and freshness of all plant nutrients, including nutrients other than vitamins and minerals (known today as phytonutrients), and the use of sustainable farming practices combined with careful production methods. Carl Rehnborg’s innovative work was the cornerstone for the emergence of a multibillionaire company very well-known around the world today.
