Overeating vs mindful eating \ Superoxide dismutase
OVEREATING – ADOPT MINDFUL EATING
Overeating goes beyond occasional indulgence or overeating during special occasions. It is considered an eating disorder known as Binge Eating Disorder (BED). BED is characterized by recurrent episodes of consuming large amounts of food in a short period, accompanied by a feeling of loss of control.
Consuming excessive amounts of calories regularly surpasses the body’s energy needs and leads to the accumulation of fat. Over time, this can result in obesity, which is associated with various health complications such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and joint problems.
Furthermore, overeating, especially foods high in refined carbohydrates and added sugars, can lead to insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels, but when resistance develops, the body has difficulty processing glucose effectively, hence increasing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
How to adopt mindful eating practices:
1) Be aware of hunger and satiety cues to control calorie consumption
2) Practice portion control to avoid overeating and health complications
3) Choose nutrient-dense foods to satisfy hunger without excessive calories

SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE: THE SUPER ANTIOXIDANT FOR SKIN
If you want to keep your skin looking young and healthy, you might want to consider adding superoxide dismutase (SOD) to your skincare routine. SOD is an enzyme that repairs cells and reduces the damage done by free radicals, the most common cause of oxidative stress and premature aging.
SOD is naturally found in both the dermis and the epidermis, and is essential to produce healthy fibroblasts, the skin-building cells. However, as we age, our SOD levels decline, leaving our skin more vulnerable to environmental aggressors and inflammation.
The benefits of topical SOD:
1) Offsetting oxidative stress and preventing collagen degradation
2) Supporting wound healing and reducing inflammation
3) Fighting hyperpigmentation and improving skin tone
SOD is more potent than other antioxidants, such as vitamin C or E, because it continues to work even after neutralizing the free radicals.
SOD from Universkin™ is a serum that delivers SOD from yeast to your skin. It is formulated with minimal ingredients and no preservatives, fragrances, or colorants. It is also compatible with any skin type and condition, thanks to the unique Universkin™ technology that allows you to customize your serum according to your skin needs.
