`Space drink` helps reduce wrinkles

`Space drink` helps reduce wrinkles

New York: A “space drink” concocted by NASA to protect astronauts from radiation has been found to be effective against wrinkles, blemishes and other skin damage from the sun.

According to University of Utah researchers, the drink known as AS10 has shown miraculous results on the 180 skin-damaged participants in their human trials.

They found that after just four months of drinking two shots of the potion daily, UV spots were reduced by 30 percent and wrinkles by 17 percent, the New York Daily News reported.

The drink is a blend of exotic fruits, including acai, acerola, prickly pear, yumberry, grape, green tea, pomegranate and Brazil’s cupuacu.

The ingredients provide high amounts of vitamins and phytochemicals that block harmful effects of radiation, the researchers said.

It also has plenty of antioxidants that ward off oxidative stress, or “free radicals” that damage skin cells.

“The skin is the first body tissue to be exposed to UV rays and we know it is sensitive to oxidative stress,” explained Dr. Aaron Barson, a nutritional scientist at the University of Utah.

“Our study shows it greatly benefits from a reduction in this stress. The effects of oxidative stress on the skin can be quickly modified and the skin can heal itself by drinking AS10,” said Barson, who is planning a larger study this summer.
