Micronutrients built in to L2G for health and metabolism
The human diet requires both macronutrients (protein, fats & carbohydrates) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, etc,) to grow, develop and function. Of the micronutrients, there are ~40 essential vitamins, minerals and other bio-chemicals which are responsible for virtually all metabolic and developmental processes that take place in the body. This includes energy production, cell division, replication, the growth, maintenance and function of our brains, heart, immune system, lung, skin, bone, muscle, etc.
So obviously if you are even marginally short on your overall daily needs for extended periods, some part of the body will get less than it needs to function optimally. The body now must decide where the nutrients should go based on immediate rather than long-term needs. Human bodies have been programmed to favor short-term survival, including reproduction, over long-term health when there are shortages of essential nutrients.


In other words, when there are less than optimal amounts of vitamins or minerals entering our bodies, they will be routed to the areas that are needed to keep us alive, such as energy production, blood formation, etc., at the expense of other areas of metabolism whose lack of optimal nutrition has only long-term consequences such as the age-related diseases. Since vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) are involved in all functions, it’s not hard to understand that chronic insufficiencies are a primary cause of age-related diseases and may be preventable or certainly lessened with very good multivitamin and micronutrient mix.


Water based Nutrients in L2G
L2G 321 contains a very pure form of protein and amino acids. An 8-ounce cup gives you approx. 26 grams of pure protein and amino acids, only 2 grams of carbohydrates, NO fat and NO cholesterol. The protein and amino acids in L2G 321 is of a higher quality than the protein found in meat and fish.
L2G contains naturally up to 20 amino acids including all the essential amino acids   - Note L2G 321 PDCAAS (Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino acid Score) is 1 the highest possible for protein
They are 100% bio-available enabling Bio – Fast use which means NONE of the amino acids are wasted. No artificial protein powder can make that claim. Other high protein sourced foods and supplements need to be broken down before the body absorbs the protein. All natural products have always been the recommended way to get the nutrients your body needs.  Our aim is to focus that our ingredients are Bio-Fast and more natural.


Components of Super-Natural skin food
The main components are water based natural amino acids however as part of the mix and there is a natural vitamin complex containing Vitamins A, B1, B2, Nicotinamide, Pantothenic Acid, B6, Folic acid, B12 and Vitamin C.
There is also a natural mix of Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Copper, Zinc, Phosphorous, Chloride, Iodine and glucose. Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate,
Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum. All these combine with the amino acids to help long term.
We also had to take into consideration the oil/fat based vitamins and essential nutrients and in early 2012 we managed to be able to mix and include Omega-3, (EPA, DHA), plus Vitamins A, D3, E and K to complement the above giving a better balance.
This gave the serum dynamic synergy helping to make it more effective, efficient and cost effective by combining all of these essentials into one user friendly bottle.

  1. Water based Nutrients

How all the amino acids in L2G can help in the health of your skin!

Amino acids and their anti-aging significance

The right mix of amino acids acts as a complete regenerative treatment for the skin, hair and nails. It supplies vital active substances that are essential for improving hair quality, strengthening nails and increasing the skin's elasticity.Beautiful shiny hair, strong fingernails and smooth, firm skin are characteristics of health and natural beauty. They require an adequate supply of certain nutrients and vital substances that nourish the skin, hair and nails from within1.
They ensure regeneration of the connective tissues, e.g. collagen, elastin and keratin. This keeps the skin supple and elastic, the nails hard and resistant, and the hair strong and beautiful.
Skin and nails
Creatine is good for the skin. Cell functions gradually slow down as part of the ageing process. The skin synthesises less and less collagen and elastin, leading to the typical symptoms of ageing skin such as wrinkles, reduced elasticity and reduced thickness. In addition, highly reactive molecules damage the genetic material in the cells and fewer repair enzymes are produced. Scientists believe creatine stimulates energy metabolism, which slows down as we age. This stimulation has a positive effect on cell functions and thus supports the natural mechanisms of skin functions. Furthermore, creatine can protect cells against external influences by forming a water sheath around them that prevents the entry of harmful substances. The ability to form a water sheath also increases the moisture content of the skin.

Creatine consists of glycine, arginine and methionine

Creatine is an amino acid derivative that occurs naturally in the body and plays an important role in the energy metabolism of the cell. It is biosynthesised from three amino acids – glycine, arginine and methionine (the latter is a component of carnitine). Carnitine is a quaternary ammonium compound biosynthesized from the amino acids lysine and methionine [1]In living cells A human body weighing 70kg contains about 120g creatine.

More creatine means more collagen

Creatine acts as a kind of energy store for times of higher energy demand. In experiments with tissue cultures, it was shown that energy metabolism can be increased by adding external creatine. It stimulates the cells to produce not only more proteins, such as collagen and elastin which are important for the skin, but also enzymes that repair damaged genetic material in the cell. 1 Collagen provides natural beauty from within
Collagen protein is synthesised by the body and bestows firmness and stability to the skin. It binds water and thus increases the skin's moisture content, allowing it to become smooth and supple. From the age of 25 onwards, our skin starts to age and the proportion of collagen in the skin is gradually reduced. By comparison, the remaining collagen is not as effective.
Collagen is an important moisturising factor in the skin and is particularly effective when it can act directly from within. In conventional treatments, collagen is regularly injected into the skin. But who wants to suffer in order to be beautiful? A much kinder and more natural way is to stimulate the body to produce its own collagen. This requires the amino acids glycine and arginine as well as carnitine.

The skin as a mirror of the metabolism

In general, amino acids are like skin care from within. The skin is a sensitive and extremely reliable early warning system. Its appearance reflects the state of the metabolism. Allergic reactions, inflammations and pale skin with poor blood circulation are all physical signs signalling imbalances in the body's metabolism.
Many American studies2, 3, 4 particularly those of recent years, have demonstrated the importance of amino acids for healthy hair and firm skin.

Glutamine for firm skin

Glutamine is the most frequently occurring amino acid and is biosynthesised by the body; however, the quantities become insufficient with age. Glutamine plays a highly important role in protein synthesis. If there is not enough available, the organism takes protein from the body's muscle mass and converts it into glutamine and energy. As a consequence, muscle proteins are lost, muscle strands become thinner and the skin becomes less firm.
Almost like a plant, people tend to dry out and “wither” as they age. In this respect, glutamine is an excellent anti-ageing supplement and some scientists refer to it as the “internal fountain of youth”, not without reason.5

Carnitine is important for firm skin as it plays a significant role in fat burning

Increasing the carnitine level accelerates fat transport so that more can be oxidised for energy. As a “fat burner”, carnitine can thus make an important contribution to weight control.
It is an important component of fitness and wellness programmes and helps to ensure long-term weight loss.6


2. Oil and Fat based nutrients
Healthier skin and a perfect Skin Food
L2G is a natural water based serum. Water and oil (or fat) do not mix so the challenge was to find a way to add the fat based vitamins and nutrients to the serum so that they mixed and further advanced the formulation.
At last! Our focused intensive research and new scientific advances have made this possible. This very advanced serum is now complete – tried and tested.
This formulation has now DHA and EPA (Omega 3), Vitamin A, D, E and K with all the added healthy advantages.


Vitamins and oils The L2G advantage –
More Natural + More Complete + More Readily Available
L2G serum and spray encapsulates non-polar (water insoluble) nutrient-compounds and makes them dissolve into water clear.  Non polar (water insoluble) compounds are associated with poor absorption across polar (water soluble) lipids.  Skin cells and mucosal tissues where nutrients absorb are composed of polar lipids.  As non-polar (water insoluble) nutrients come in contact with these surfaces, their ability to absorb and perform their biological function becomes minimized.  Encapsulating these nutrients to become water soluble increases their absorption across water soluble lipids.  L2G 321 utilises patented technologies that encapsulate these non polar compounds to a nanometer scale.  The nanotechnology used to create the encapsulated particles are naturally derived and GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) for food making the L2G 321 serum effective, safe and uncompromised.
Vitamins are classified as either fat soluble (vitamins A, D, E and K) or water soluble (vitamins B and C). This difference between the two groups is very important. It determines how each vitamin acts within the body.
The fat soluble vitamins are soluble in lipids (fats). These vitamins are usually absorbed in fat globules (called chylomicrons) that travel through the lymphatic system of the small intestines and into the general blood circulation within the body. These fat soluble vitamins, especially vitamins A and E, are then stored in body tissues. Water based vitamins are usually not stored.
Fat soluble vitamins, once they have been stored in tissues in the body, tend to remain there.

Persons can be also be deficient in the fat soluble vitamins if their fat intake is too low or if their fat absorption is compromised, for example, by certain drugs (that interfere with the absorption of fat from the intestine) or by certain diseases such as cystic fibrosis (in which there is a deficiency of enzymes from the pancreas which similarly interferes with the absorption of fat from the intestine).
Additional power to the L2G serum and drink helping to promote Healthy skin thanks to:-
DHA and EPA – Omega 3  
DHA and EPA are also excellent elements to keep your skin healthy and supple. They are known to prevent the skin from getting dry and flaky. DHA and EPA also help in mitigating the effects of UV rays or overexposure to the sun.
Fish oil contains two main types of omega-3 fatty acids: docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA keeps the brain functioning properly. And EPA greatly benefits skin by regulating oil production to boost hydration and prevent acne, and by delaying the skin’s aging process to stave off wrinkles.
A 2005 study in the Journal of Lipid Research discovered that EPA can help block the release of the UV-induced enzymes that eat away at our collagen, causing lines and sagging skin. Because EPA is both an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent, it can protect against sun damage and help repair it.

Most of us don’t get enough omega-3s in our diets—oily fish like herring, mackerel, salmon, anchovies, and tuna are the best sources—so it’s a good idea to take a supplement.
Hundreds of studies suggest that omega-3s may provide some benefits to a wide range of diseases: cancer, asthma, depression, cardiovascular disease, ADHD, and autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
How could fatty acids be so beneficial for so many different conditions
"All these diseases have a common genesis in inflammation," says Joseph C. Maroon, MD, professor and vice chairman of the department of neurological surgery at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine. Co-author of Fish Oil: The Natural Anti-Inflammatory, Maroon says that in large enough amounts omega-3's reduce the inflammatory process that leads to many chronic conditions these and other reasons, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Department of

Agriculture (USDA), the American Heart Association, and the American Dietetic Association recommend eating two 8-ounce servings of fish each week
Vitamin A
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin found in animal and plant sources. The retinol form of vitamin A comes from animal sources. The carotenoid form, beta-carotene, comes from plant sources. Vitamin A plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin.
Skin Benefits of Vitamin A
Vitamin A has numerous health benefits on the skin. It helps the skin to maintain its moisture, thereby preventing it from troubles related to dryness. Retinol, an active form of Vitamin A, is extremely beneficial to the skin. Vitamin A derivatives are used to treat skin disorders. Following are some of the benefits of vitamin A on the skin.
Benefits of Vitamin A on the Skin #1: Reduce wrinkles Vitamin A can help prevent appearance of wrinkles and other signs of skin aging. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that is usable by the body. Retinol plays a role both as an antioxidant and as a wrinkle reducer in many anti aging skin care products and wrinkle creams. It is a powerful antioxidant to wash out free radicals and waste products from your body, removing wrinkles.
Benefits of Vitamin A on the Skin #2: Cure acne Vitamin A applied to the skin may help those who suffer with acne. It helps strengthen the protective tissues of the skin making it firm. People who suffer from acne have seen positive results when the condition is treated with vitamin A. It is beneficial in reducing
the production of sebum, an oily substance produced by the skin glands that leads to acne. Once sebum is controlled, acne is reduced.
Benefits of Vitamin A on the Skin #3: Reduce stretch marks
It is equally effective in reducing stretch marks. Those who have stretch marks also use it. It is believed to help smooth the skin. Vitamin A can bring about the regeneration of skin cells. When our skin cells are encouraged to regenerate, new and healthier skin will take the place of our unsightly stretch marks. Thus, the severity of the stretch marks will be reduced. It may even lead to a total elimination of the unwanted scars.
Health Benefits of Vitamin A Vitamin A is believed to help with many other skin ailments that will benefit both the young and old. It has several potential preventive and therapeutic uses. Following are some of the important health benefits of vitamin A.
Health Benefits of Vitamin A #1: Treat psoriasis
Vitamin A may be beneficial in treating eczema and psoriasis. It is often recommended as an alternative and natural remedy for these skin conditions. Vitamin A, often in the form of retinoids, is an effective psoriasis treatment. Several systemic retinoids (derivatives of vitamin A) have been developed for the treatment of psoriasis. Retinoids help normalize cellular growth function, which in turn aid treat psoriasis.
Health Benefits of Vitamin A #2: Enhance immune system
This vitamin has been called the "miracle vitamin" for years because of the positive impact it has on enhancing our immunity and growth. This is the vitamin, which acts as the defense to our immune system. It helps to avoid or ward off infections by making white blood cells that destroy harmful viruses and bacteria.
Health Benefits of Vitamin A #3: Fights cancer
It acts as antioxidant, guard cells from damaging free radicals, and helps promote strong teeth, healthy tissue, and strong skeletal muscles. It helps to protect our cells against cancer and other diseases. Vitamin A fights cancer by inhibiting the production of DNA in cancerous cells.
Health Benefits of Vitamin A #4: Promote healing
Bruises, minor wounds, burns, and scrapes may find relief from Vitamin A. Ointments and creams rich in Vitamin A are natural abrasion healers.
Health Benefits of Vitamin A #5: Improve eye health Vitamin A encourages good vision and prevents night blindness. Because it helps protect the surface of the eye (cornea), it is essential for good vision. It also produces the pigments in the retina of the eye.
This helps in promoting good vision, especially in low light. Night blindness caused by vitamin A deficiency can be treated with therapeutic dosages of the vitamin.
In a 2007 article published by ScienceDaily.com, researchers found that using a 0.4% retinol on participants' skin reduced overall aging, roughness and wrinkles over a 24-week period of time. The use of retinol
increased the production of glycosaminoglycan and procollagen, which are structural components of the skin.
Vitamin D "Skin is an organ, and like all our other organs, it needs all vital vitamins in order for it to function properly. Vitamin D replenishes hydration and boosts elasticity, helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles, enhances the skin’s radiance, and helps correct sun damage and dark spots."
Recent research indicates that Vitamin D helps lengthen telomeres – which affect cell life, and aging. Although Vitamin D is mostly known as the Sunshine Vitamin – it might soon be named the Anti-Aging Vitamin.


Your body can’t create vitamin D on its own. Instead, it’s designed to make it through exposure of the sun on your skin. In theory, you can make an ample supply of vitamin D with as little as a couple of hours per week in the sun — provided the UVB rays are strong enough.
Like solar cells – some people have a higher efficiency in producing vitamin D (for more information about producing vitamin D from the sun – click here), and others are less efficient, and consequently more likely to be vitamin D deficient and consequently at a greater health risk.
Vitamin E
It's common knowledge that vitamin E is good for your skin, but not many people could tell you exactly what this nutrient does -- vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin.
Antioxidant
First of all, because of its antioxidant activity, vitamin e is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. It is believed that vitamin e is most effective in its natural alcohol form rather than its acetate form where it is a less effective antioxidant. Watch for this in the labeling of skin care products.
Regulator for Vitamin A
The vitamin e benefits for healthy skin care also include its ability to regulate vitamin a in the body, which itself is important for healthy skin.
Anti-Aging Benefits of Vitamin E
Vitamin e added to lotions, creams, and other skin care products, as well as taken orally, plays a role in the anti-aging of skin. It helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Also, free radicals are believed to play an
important role in skin aging and therefore the antioxidant activity is quite valuable for this skin problem.
Sun Protection and Sun Burn Treatment
Vitamin E lotions provide some benefit in preventing and treating sunburns. These lotions protect the epidermis layer of the skin from early stages of ultra violet light damage. Vitamin e preparations also increase the effectiveness of sunscreens. Such lotions do not work immediately. They must be applied about 20 minutes before sun exposure in order to allow the vitamin e to be absorbed deep into the epidermis layer.

Treatment of Skin Diseases
Vitamin e can aid in the treatment of various skin diseases or skin conditions. Topical applications such as those used to treat psoriasis is one of the benefits of vitamin e. Orally ingested vitamin e can help treat erythema (a skin inflammation that results in reddish, painful, and tender lumps).
Treatment of Scars
This is one of the more controversial benefits of vitamin e. Initially, it was thought that vitamin e was very beneficial in the prevention and treatment of scarring (acne scars or surgical scars) and healing of skin from various forms of damage such as burns. Some recent research has questioned this benefit of vitamin e. In fact some studies have indicated that vitamin e creams do not help prevent surgical scarring and may actually make the scar look worse. This is in opposition to the experience of a number of individuals that claim vitamin e creams help soften the appearance of scars.
Skin Cancer Benefits of Vitamin E
One of the most important benefits of vitamin e is the prevention of skin cancer. This occurs because of its sun protection quality and of course its powerful antioxidant properties, which help reduce or prevent sun damage.
Vitamin K and Vitamin E
Research has shown that Vitamin K helps in protecting skin elasticity, skin aging and wrinkle forming
The K in vitamin K is an abbreviation for the German word "Koagulation." Vitamin K enables a protein containing the above-mentioned gamma-carboxyglutamic acid to "grab" calcium out of the bloodstream and link proteins together so they can form a floating net in the bloodstream. This floating net forms the clot that keeps blood in its proper channels and prevents excessive bleeding.
What you need to keep in mind is, just as skin conditions (except as a complication of surgery) don't happen after night, they aren't healed overnight. Use vitamin K on a consistent basis, optimally twice a day, for at least 90 days to see results.
And for even better results, consider a vitamin K cream that included added vitamin E. Experts agree that the main cause of wrinkled skin is exposure to the sun. The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate the skin and activate molecules of oxygen.


UV radiation makes the oxygen molecule "spin." The radiation splits a molecule of O2 into two free radicals of O. The newly created toxic free radicals of oxygen attack proteins, lipids, and DNA. They link proteins together to make "leathery" skin, and the attack the collagen that keeps skin supple and wrinkle-free. UV exposure causes not just wrinkling but also age spots and cancer.
Vitamin E stops the action of UV rays on skin. Vitamin E provides a chemical called alpha-tocopherol. This chemical in turn recharges other antioxidants that keep skin healthy.
Vitamin E helps the fatty acids themselves to stay free-radical free, both in the body and even in the bottle sitting on the shelf. Vitamin E in the vitamin K cream protects the antioxidant potency of the vitamin K.
With the help of vitamin E, K creams are able to "dry up" excessive bleeding. Excessive flow of blood is behind all the conditions that cause purple marks on the skin, including the spider veins, bruises, stretch marks, rosacea, burns, and skin disorders mentioned above. Use E and K to keep skin clear and naturally beautiful.
How much does your skin absorb?
This will depend on the ingredients and delivery system!
Dependent Upon Blend of Ingredients
No cosmetic formula is created exactly the same. Even products with similar ingredients are absorbed in to the body differently. The amount of water in the formula, the viscosity, presence of penetration enhancers like glycols, the presence of nanoparticles, pH, and the particular chemical makeup--all of these factors will affect how a product is absorbed.

Dependent Upon Usage
Typically, leave-on products like lotions will usually have higher absorption rate than a wash-off product like a shampoo, just for the sheer amount of time and surface area that you're exposed to.

Dependent Upon Age
As we age, our skin becomes thinner and it is theorised that absorption can increase. Also infant skin is thought to be thinner and/or more absorbent as well

Dependent Upon the Area of the Body
Obviously, the skin on the soles of our feet is much thicker than the skin on our faces, so where the product is applied has a big effect on absorption. Additionally, an area of skin that is not touched much by clothing has the potential to absorb more than an area where clothing would rub a product off the skin.

Absorption Not As Important as We Thought
While the actual absorption of cosmetics is not totally known, and varies wildly from person-to-person and from formula-to-formula bear in mind …..
The skin IS the body. It's not a disconnected external shell. It's an organ that interacts with the rest of the body.

So, while absorption rates are still largely unknown and varied, absorption is almost secondary to reactions that actually occur in the skin and that can affect the function of the rest of your body. The better, the more natural and the more complete – the more beneficial they may be>
