New York: Here comes a refreshing news for those who want to keep their skin stay younger for longer.
Researchers at Newcastle University have identified an antioxidant Tiron that offers total protection against some types of sun damage and may ultimately help our skin stay looking younger for longer. "To discover that Tiron offers complete protection against ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation damage is exciting and promising. This finding provides us with a platform to study an antioxidant - preferably a naturally occurring compound with a similar structure which could then be safely added to food or cosmetics," said Mark Birch-Machin, professor of molecular dermatology at Newcastle University.
The team found that the most potent anti-oxidants were those that targeted the batteries of the skin cells - known as the mitochondria. They found that the most potent mitochondrial targeted anti-oxidant was Tiron - providing 100 percent protection of the skin cell against UVA sun damage and stress-induced damage, said a new study published in the FASEB Journal.
The researchers treated skin cells exposed to a physiological dose of UVA radiation with a panel of antioxidants. They used four antioxidants - resveratrol found in red wine, NAC, a frequently used laboratory-based anti-oxidant, curcumin found in turmeric and chemically composed antioxidant Tiron
