Calcium speeds up the process of cellular turnover, which helps keep the skin looking radiant. Without the calcium to speed up the process the skin may start to look aged, fragile and appear thin. Potassium also helps the growth of new cells and aids in hydrating the skin, which keeps the skin moisturized and healthy. Magnesium is known to prevent the onset of wrinkles while phosphorous contributes to the repair and maintenance processes of skin cells from daily exposure to environmental pollutants. Zinc is known to work as an antioxidant, reducing the damage of free radicals, minimizing damage from UV rays and environmental pollutants while protecting the skin cells that produce collagen. Zinc is also known as an anti-inflammatory that can help fight acne and other skin irritations. Copper is known to aid in the synthesis of collagen and increase cell reproduction. It also aids in the production of melanin, which prevents pigmentation of the skin. Magnesium is known to prevent the onset of wrinkles and damage caused by free radicals, while phosphorous contributes to the repair and maintenance processes of skin cells from daily wear and tear.
