Anti-Aging supplements: A reality check

There has been a great demand for anti-aging supplements over the past years. From moisturizers to topical creams, these products offer one thing in common—the promise to reduce the effects of aging.

But are they really effective?

Citing antioxidants as an example, Dr. Karen E. Burke states that majority of all available anti-aging products contain varying concentrations of antioxidants that are not well-absorbed by the skin. However, she notes that there are some that have been proven to decrease the effect of sun exposure and skin damage: selenium, vitamin E, and vitamin C.

Meanwhile, a propose the effectiveness of anti-aging creams, Dr. Karin Patterson says the overall picture is complicated.

She explains: “Certain over-the-counter creams and anti-aging substances do work, but it’s not one size fits all. People have different levels of hormones, vitamins, exercise, stress, time spent in the sun – all play a role in healthy skin. So it’s usually a combination of things.”

This, according to Dr. Patterson, is one of the reasons anti-aging cream or supplement is unlikely to be effective for all users. She also stresses that the lack of concentration on some products may be a factor to its ineffectiveness.
