Ceramides are complex neutral lipids (lipids), relating to a group of glycolipids -cerebrosides. Part of the membrane structures of cells, especially nerve and blood cells. It is believed that ceramides play an important role in maintaining the normal condition of the skin and hair.
Ceramides are natural lipids (fats) and a major component of skin structure. These fats allow skin to retain moisture. Ceramides in Beauty help replace those lost in the aging process.
- Lecithin — one of the important lipid components of membranes of all body cells
- It has a membrane stabilizing effect
- A particularly high content of lecithin is characteristic of cells of the nervous system and brain tissue, which makes it improves the function of neurons and the state of myelin sheaths of nerves. The result is a positive effect of lecithin on memory and cognitive brain function, mental performance
- Lecithin is a source of methyl groups, which play an important role in metabolic processes. Actively manifests itself in lipid metabolism: prevents fatty liver and cirrhosis
- Has a hepatoprotective effect, increasing the protective properties of liver cells in relation to infections and various kinds of poisoning
- Has anti atherosclerotic properties. Lowers cholesterol in the blood and prevents its deposition in the walls of blood vessels
- It favors the reduction of blood pressure
- Promotes the contractile ability of muscle fibers, and also increases the power and muscle endurance
- Normalizes the function of sexual glands, has a positive effect on sexual activity
- Methionine — an essential amino acid
- It is a powerful antioxidant and a good source of sulfur, which prevents disorders of the hair, skin, and nails
- Assists the breakdown of fats, thus helping to prevent a buildup of fat in the liver and arteries that might obstruct blood flow to the brain, heart, and kidneys

- Beta-carotene is a biological antioxidant. It protects cell membranes against the effects of free radicals.
- Beta-carotene is a predecessor of vitamin A («the growth vitamin»); it regulates the growth of bones and participates in the formation of optic pigments that are necessary for normal night and color vision.
- Vitamin A and its analogs have shown the ability to help inhibit cancer cell proliferation and help in returning to normal growth patterns. Individuals with highest levels of beta-carotene intake have lower risks of lung cancer, coronary artery heart disease, stroke and age-related eye disease than individuals with lowest lvels of beta-carotene intake. Its inhibitory effects are especially potent against leukemia and certain head and neck cancers.

- Like all other carotenoids, beta-carotene is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are substances that help prevent or reduce the formation of damaging chemicals in the body called free radicals.
- Consuming foods rich in beta-carotene appears to protect the body from damaging molecules called free radicals. Free radicals cause damage to cells through a process known as oxidation, and over time, such damage can lead to a variety of chronic illnesses. Beta-carotene’s antioxidant actions make it valuable in protecting against, and in some cases even reversing, precancerous conditions affecting the breast, mucous membranes, throat, mouth, stomach, prostate, colon, cervix, and bladder.

Biotin is also involved in making glucose, some amino acids and in energy production. Vitamin H plays a special role in enabling the body to use blood sugar (glucose), a major source of energy for body fluids
