Today's Sunday Supp comes from the Salt Lake Keto Conference (and really it's been asked a number of times), but it has to do with improving your skin! What can you do to get younger looking skin?
What can bioStak do for your skin health?
How do free radicals affect your skin?

Chad: 00:04 So we're getting a lot of questions regarding the proper way to live life in ketosis. We have you covered in our midweek mini series called Sunday supps. Every Sunday we have a quick supplemental episode or went to your questions on all things Keto. So our question today comes from actually um, anonymous, Eh, uh, Keto Salt Lake conference attendee. Not even at anonymous, we just don't know their name but it was a great question. We wanted to make sure we explored that on um, on our Sunday supp. So basically what happened was we were talking to a lot of people about bioStak of course. And one of the, one of the cool benefits of bioStak is skin health and, um, you know, possible effects of anti aging and smoother skin and that kind of stuff. And we got a lot of questions around that. What does keto and bioStak and all that kind of stuff have to do with healthy anti aging anti wrinkle skin health. So, um, Eric, I thought it would be really cool to cover that in our Sunday supps so that people could be more aware of what, uh, what Keto and cellular health has to do with our skin.
Eric: 01:17 You Bet. Yeah, I was, yeah, I was, you know, I was asked the question cause I was talking about skin and wrinkles and aging and that leathery look and, and I even pointed to my face, I got this big liver spot on the right side of my face shape, like a triangle, which is oxidation. Okay. And basically they from free radical damage. And um, so they asked the question, well what is the bioStak or what is it, you know, free radicals have to do with, um, with my skin. And so basically, you know, what's exciting about, you know, besides, you know, bone broth and Collagen and things like that that really helped is bottom line is on our skin issue. We do have the outer layers of epidermis. Okay. And then underneath that are protector, you know, it's, it's, it keeps the water out and the pathogens out and everything else.
Eric: 02:07 Then underneath that we have the dermis that gives this support. Okay. And within that Dermis, we've, we've got some nerves. We got, we got some essential now types of proteins and some fatty acids, but we also have in that dermis what we call Collagen and Elastin. Okay. So that's the support right there. That's, you know, it gives you that network of Nice skin. But what happens, especially in me, you know, I'm aging, so basically the Mitochondria will basically is, is not functioning as well. And for that Mitochondria to be effective, you need energy. And what you're going to need energy for is the fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are what's going to give you that useful skin. But with mitochondrial dysfunction, the fiberglass or less capable of producing the ATP, that energy, all right, two obviously manufacturer, Elastin and Collagen. And so without proper good mitochondria working, which basically is free, radicals are causing the dysfunction, you're not going to have that nice, really young looking skin.
Eric: 03:17 And so basically the stack is, is, is designed to obviously scavenge free radicals and make the mitochondrial stronger and more functional. So if you want that a, a more lasting and more Collagen, we need our fiber blasts really healthy. And, and you know, real quick, you know that co Q 10 that people are always talking about right now because that's in the electric transport chain that carries, you know, the electrons from one and two to three and we'll go into detail, but you'll see cocuten enhances your mitochondria, your production of ATP. That's why your alarms are throwing them in the creams and different things like that. Or people take coke, you, Tim. So between the three that and free radical scavenging, which cocuten can do that too, along with a bioStak, a, you're going to enhance your blasts to enhance your elastin and Collagen to enhance good looking skin.
Eric: 04:12 Okay? So you won't have skin like me. Basically I improving. Okay. But I did have people comment, I do have a pretty good spot on the right side of my face and it, but ever since I've been keto the last four years, I'm really concentrates. Uh, it's it, you're actually getting better. My skin is actually improving. I'm not just saying that, I'm actually getting that. And I did a keto tip on it this morning actually on an elasticity. So that's dealing with the last that's in mixing with the college and that Dermis. So, so it's their mitochondria is everywhere. The we need good functioning energy producing mitochondria for everything.
Chad: 04:56 Yeah. Wait, so I think I might be unclear. So is is, yeah, Mitochondria does, does Mitochondria help everything? No, absolutely. Everywhere. And it's everywhere. It is. Yeah, it is. I love it.
Eric: 05:13 I'm on the mitochondrial theory of aging and it's, it's real. Anyway, don't get me on that topic,
Chad: 05:21 but anyway, I got to talk about it. I got to talk about it. You've never been off of it. That's true. That's true. Uh, uh, well that's great. Thanks so much for biohacking with us today, Eric. All right. Thank you. And I want to thank you for joining us on this quest for optimal fitness.
