Apollo's Hegemony Clear Skin is an innovative product for flawless complexion and guaranteeing perfect-looking skin of the whole body. It's an optimal combination of two synergistic substances with strong anti-acne properties: vitamin B5 and acetyl L-carnitine.
The main task of the preparation is to regulate the function of the sebaceous glands and reduce excessive sebum secretion, which is the main cause of the formation of pimples on the skin (not just face, but also back, arms and chest). In addition, it inhibits the excessive secretion of sebum by the sebaceous glands and pores, preventing the appearance of papules, pustules, cysts on the skin and reduces unaesthetic skin shine on the face.
It has been proven that the lack of vitamin B5 in the body is the main cause of acne. The supplementation of pantothenic acid contributes to quick resolution of pathological skin conditions. Acetyl L-carnitine, present in this preparation, not only enhances the effects of vitamin B5, but it is also able to reduce sebum excretion in a cell line of human sebaceous cells on its own.
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) is structurally the amide between pantoic acid and β-alanine essential for every living cell. After absorption, it undergoes various metabolic processes, including reactions resulting in the formation of coenzyme A.
Pantothenic acid determines the metabolism of proteins, sugars and fats, accelerates wound healing, reduces inflammations, participates in the production of adrenal hormones, prevents fatigue and supports the cardiovascular system. It's also involved in tissue regeneration, it improves pigmentation and condition of hair and speeds up its growth.
Apart from that, it participates in the processes of growth in the body, affects skin regeneration and nail growth. To some extent, it also exhibits anti-inflammatory and epithelium-sealing properties. It is believed to prevent premature ageing and the occurrence of wrinkles, although that has not been clinically proven yet.
Acetyl L-Carnitine - an acetylated form of carnitine which is a vitamin-like nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous and muscular systems . It’s recommended for athletes willing to improve the body's condition and boost the post-workout recovery.
Apart from its beneficial systemic effect, ALCAR is an ideal catalyst for many substances, supporting and intensifying their action. The combination of acetyl L-carnitine with vitamin B5 is one of the best mixtures of ingredients for healthy and flawless skin.
Dr Leung's hypothesis
In 1995, Dr Lit-Hung Leung put forward a hypothesis that the main cause of acne is vitamin B5 deficiency in the body. He demonstrated that acne is a result of impaired lipid metabolism and consequence of coenzyme A deficiency, which in turn is caused by the deficiency of pantothenic acid.
The researcher gave his patients high doses of pantothenic acid (about 10 grams per day). The effect was decreased sebum excretion and quick resolution of pathological skin conditions. About two-week treatment resulted in smoother and prettier skin. This research was continued by Jilian L. Capodice, who was the first to combine pantothenic acid with l-carnitine in 2012.
L-carnitine not only showed the ability to reduce sebum excretion in a cell line of human sebaceous cells, but it also helped to significantly minimise the therapeutic dose of pantothenic acid. The action of this compound stems mainly from its capacity to transport fatty acids through mitochondrial membranes, where they can be oxidised. The safety and efficacy of the combination of vitamin B with L-carnitine has been confirmed in studies by Dr Jeffrey Dach.
Apollo's Hegemony Clear Skin is the best solution for people suffering from persistent acne and dreaming of the perfect appearance of their skin. Active substances included in Clear Skin have no side effects, while showing an extremely broad spectrum of positive effects on the human body.
