Premium HyC150 promotes health and wellness – even for men

While most men may not be conscious of their looks, they do strive for good health and wellness, especially as they get older. Aside from keeping a regular fitness routine and following a healthy diet, the use of supplements keeps their energy and stamina at an optimum as they go through the demands of the day.

The number of health supplements available in the market might make choosing the right one difficult. While most multivitamins offer all-in-one coverage, there are some that focus specifically on the specific demands of men.

Dr. Rodolfo Apostol, an expert on aesthetics science and skin medicine, says men should take advantage of Premium HyC150, which has been described as the modern-day “fountain of youth,” and is considered to be a woman’s secret weapon to looking young, staying physically fit, and feeling good about herself.

“Premium HyC150 is not solely for women and vanity,” says Dr. Apostol, who is the vice president for business affairs of the International Academy for Aesthetic Sciences and a specialist at the Manila Eye Surgical Center.

“Actually Premium HyC150 is a very good supplement for mature people 30 years old and above for it prevents and slows down the aging process, which ultimately makes one look young and healthy. It contains ingredients that are continuously depleted as we age, and there is no way for our body to replenish them but from external sources,” he says.

Premium HyC150 combines three youth-inducing ingredients in one supplement drink: collagen, hyaluronic acid and ubiquinol. Other active ingredients, like vitamin C, biotin, and pearl coix, complement these elements.

“The reason why it is called Premium HyC150 is because it contains 150 milligrams of hyaluronic acid, which is considered to be a natural moisturizer, especially for the skin. It is the reason why the skin looks full and supple, because it eliminates the formation of fine lines, giving younger looking skin,” he explains. “It also gives benefits to those patients who are suffering from arthritis for it replenishes the hyaluronic acid inside the joints, giving more flexibility in movement.”

On the other hand, collagen is major component of the body’s connective tissues, providing structural support where it is found, such as in the skin, muscle, ligaments, tendon, cartilage and bone.

“Premium HyC150 comes with 6,000 milligrams of collagen. Collagen is a very important component in our body, and its depletion from one’s body manifest in the form of early aging. A desirable therapeutic effect of collagen is its blood thinning effect, thereby improving blood circulation that eventually leads to a better and healthier look. Patients who have undergone a coronary bypass, as well as post-stroke and hypertensive patients, would benefit much from this key component,” explains the health expert.

The other components of Premium HyC150 work in tandem to bring about good health and improved well-being to its users.

Ubiquinol is an enzyme co-factor that helps strengthen a patient’s skeletal system and cardiac muscles, which are weakened by excessive amounts of anti-lipedemic drugs to counter bad cholesterol. This substance also helps deliver more energy at the intracellular level of the muscle, so as not to weaken it.

Pearl coix has a very popular whitening and anti-cancer effect, especially in China, Korea and Japan. It is a breakfast staple for centuries, and is one of the main secrets for attaining beautiful complexion. Biotin is the only vitamin that maintains the integrity of hair and nails. Lastly, vitamin C contributes potent antioxidant effect, plus extra whitening property.

HyCproducts

Based on clinical studies done in Japan, North America, and Europe, about 93 percent of Premium HyC150 users reported improved hair, nails, and skin with continued use. Although results can vary per individual, it only takes one to two weeks to see the positive changes.

Premium HyC150 is manufactured by Fine Japan Co. Ltd, one of the finest and multi-awarded companies in Japan. “It is the only company in the world that produces products in nano form that render their products readily absorbed by the body and showing its effect in a short period of time after its intake,” adds Dr. Apostol. “With all the components mentioned above, it’s just like forming a dream team of health and beauty secret regimen.”
