August Product Profile..... Tan-Aid with L-Tyrosine
Today, we use dietary supplements (Vitamins) to improve everything, from sports
performance, to better memory, to even sex drive. Yet when we want to get a
nice tan we do nothing but lay in the sun or tanning salon and expect our body
to do the rest! Tanning, like any other function, depends on a series of
bio-chemical processes: without the proper nutrients present, your body will
not be efficient in the production of Melanin, the dark pigment the body
produces in response to UVR (Ultraviolet Radiation) and as a result tans your
skin. But Melanin does not appear out of nowhere. Is is synthesized by the body
from an amino acid called Tyrosine, and the degree that you tan depends on your
body's supply of Tyrosine and your skin cell's ability to process it. This is
where TAN-AID comes in!
What Is Tan-Aid?
TAN-AID Tanning Supplements are all-natural VITAMINS formulated to boost the
body's natural tanning process. Formulated with 13 different vitamins,
minerals, and amino acids, TAN-AID addresses the specific dietary requirements
during the tanning process, by providing the necessary nutrients used during
Melanin production so your body can help itself. The result? A quicker, darker
How Does Tan-Aid Work?
TAN-AID works by addressing the specific dietary requirements during the tanning
process.The specialized formula in TAN-AID provides not only Tyrosine, for
Melanin synthesis, but also all of the crucial vitamin co-factors used during
the creation of the pigment Melanin. TAN-AID boosts your body's natural tanning
process, resulting in a quicker, darker, and deeper tan. TAN-AID contains NO
artificial dyes such as Canthaxanthin or Beta-Carotene! Each of the ingredients
in TAN-AID is all-natural, and used by the body during the tanning process.
How Do I Use Tan-Aid?
TAN-AID is used in conjunction with your normal tanning activities at the beach
or tanning salon (UVR exposure required). DIRECTIONS FOR USE: take two
capsules, twice a day, beginning the day before tanning, until the day after
tanning. That's it! TAN-AID does the rest, by providing the "raw" materials
your body needs to produce more Melanin. TAN-AID is not a "self" or "sunless
tanner"; TAN-AID is an all-natural dietary supplement which contains no dyes or
artificial colors whatsoever! Forget about other products that artificially
color your skin orange, which everyone can spot a mile away. Only through UVR
exposure will you be able to achieve a completely natural, attractive tan.
TAN-AID helps you by providing the "fuel" for a quicker, darker tan. And the
best part? The tan you get is your own!
How Does Our Body Tan?
Tanning occurs during Melanogenesis, the production of Melanin. This is the
body's natural sunblock, produced by specialized skin cells called Melanocytes
in response to exposure to UVR. Melanin is synthesized from the amino acid
Once Tyrosine is synthesized into Melanin, the resulting pigment rises to the
uppermost levels of the skin where it encapsulates individual skin cells,
resulting in what we know as a "tan". This process is the body's automatic
response to UVR; it is the body's way of protecting itself. In doing so it
imparts our skin with that golden, bronze color we all love! And the more
Melanin your body produces the better protected, and the better tan you will
Whether tanning indoors or outdoors in the Summer sun... you can give your tan a
boost and supplement natural nutrients to your skin and body at the same time.
Tan-Aid boosts the body's natural tanning process, resulting in a quicker,
darker tan upon exposure to UVR.
L-Tyrosine (400mg): Tyrosine is the amino-acid from which the pigment Melanin is
formed. This process, called Melanogenesis, is what is responsible for a "tan",
or darkening of the skin, upon exposure to UVR. Without Tyrosine there would be
B-Complex Vitamins: The B vitamins (B1,B2,B3, B5,B6,and B12) assist primarily in
the conversion and metabolism of amino-acids, regeneration of red blood cells,
and skin cell growth. All of these functions figure prominently in the process
Vitamin C: Assists in the maintenance of normal connective tissue, and promotes
regeneration of skin. And, more important, is an antioxidant agent which
quenches free radicals caused by UV light, thus slowing down the long term
effects of exposure to UVR.
Vitamin E: Absolutely essential for healthy skin. It helps the skin maintain its
suppleness, and is also an antioxidant and anti free-radical agent. It also
assists skin in repairing itself after exposure to UVR.
Copper: This mineral is critical for the synthesis of both Collagen (responsible
for skin strength and suppleness, as well as ability to retain moisture) and
Tyrosine (amino-acid which converts to Melanin).
Folic Acid: Utilized during the conversion of Tyrosine into Melanin and for the
formation of red blood cells.
Choline Bitartrate and Inositol: Both of these substances are integral in the
transportation and assimilation of substances within the body. Choline also
helps in the conversion of Tyrosine into Melanin. Inositol promotes the
formation of cell membranes.
