Ag-Factor™ is very effective against signs of aging and great for anyone with a dull complexion, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and sensitive skin. It will help brighten your skin to a radiant glow and leave it smoother and firmer. Ag-Factor™ is not only good for your skin, it also helps detox your liver, blood and other major organs as well as help boost your immune system, hormone balance and a myriad of supporting functions.
Ag-Factor™ work naturally enable your body to work more intelligently to produce your own glutathione and collagen.
The secret to staying young is eating the right food. From ancient times, milk has been associated with beauty, an elixir for slowing the effects of aging. Ag-Factor™ cysteine peptides are derived from milk using sophisticated separation technology and patent-pending knowledge. The result is a lactose-free and highly nutritious milk component (whey protein) that the US FDA has approved with GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status.
Cysteine is a powerful food for youthful skin and for safeguarding our internal organs and brain from the devastating effects of free radicals. How young we stay relative to our age is determined by our body's most powerful antioxidant, glutathione. However, production of glutathione declines as we age, from age 20 onwards.
Cysteine is a precursor of glutathione, an antioxidant that is prevalent in every cell in the human body, especially in the liver where it is present in abundance. Glutathione not only defends our body from the effects of aging, it also neutralises toxic pollutants and is most effective at preventing diseases.
In recent years, collagen products have been actively linked to the topic of ANTI-AGING. Many beauty companies have introduced a wide range of collagen products for those wishing to stay young, have smooth skin etc. The response and feedback from most collagen users, however, is that collagen only gives short-term results. Once stopped, skin rapidly returns to its previous condition within a few weeks. The reason for this is collagen breaks down easily, especially under direct sunlight. This is why maintenance is necessary. Is it wise to spend money for such short-term results when a long-term investment is needed?
Ag-Factor's natural peptide-bonded form of Cysteine has been shown in animal studies carried out by DMM to boost levels of glutathione produced in the liver by as much as 3-10 in comparison to other naturally sourced amino acids such as porcine source collagen (the most absorbable collagen compare to fish and bovine). To get the same amount of Cysteine—if you are taking hydrolyzed source collagen, you will need to consume at least 16-24gm per day.
The amount of collagen normally found in most supplements is less than 5gms. Do the math. If collagen is three to ten times less effective than Cysteine peptide and you are only getting 30% per day—are you getting value for your money?
The full spectrum of amino acids in Ag-Factor™ is the trigger for the body to produce its own source of collagen.
Both zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu), once bound to a protein, have been shown to be very effective in regenerating new tissue and increasing the synthesis of structural proteins such as collagen.
Ag-Factor™ proteins have a significant, rapid and long-term effect on skin firmness through increased elasticity and moisture retention.
Have you wondered why early childhood photos of many celebrities show a much darker skin colour than they have now? Their secret is eating the right foods. Most of us may think this is due to whitening skincare products, but do people know most of these products cause breakouts and dryness to the skin because of the ingredients used?
For skincare, we always recommend any hydrating range of product. It’s always the wise choice. Water/hydration is the key to lovely smooth skin. For fairer and brighter skin, though, eating the right foods is always the best solution.
Ag-Factor™ cysteine peptides enable the body to produce sufficient amounts of glutathione. Glutathione is 100% clinically proven to be effective for skin whitening.
Ag-Factor™ promotes the body's own natural antioxidant activity as well as production of pheomelanine, a red-yellow form of melanin pigment found in abundance in fair-skinned people.
Oxidative stress from UV exposure and other environmental pollutants can cause melanogenesis, the production of brown-colour pigments associated with tanned skin. Use of Ag-Factor™ antioxidants can slow or even reverse this process creating a brightening effect for the skin.
This is not the first time we are asked why pay more for Ag-Factor?
Glutathione is not well absorbed into the body when taken by mouth as it has been proven clinically that the body is incapable of absorbing direct intake of Glutathione. One way to get around that is to take it by the vein (intravenous). Are you prepared to do that—inject yourself daily?
Synthetic Cysteine marketers want you to believe that there is no difference between naturally occurring Cysteine and synthetic because the synthetics are easier to produce and thus carry a much higher profit margin. It is that simple. It is the triumph of profits over health, and most consumers including doctors have unknowingly bought into that value system.
Your education of the supplement industry up until now
You have been told that the majority of supplements are nature's own ingredients; but the sad truth is that in the case of commercially mass produced L Cysteine, they are fermented in laboratories from a type of bacteria called Pseudomonas thiazolinophilum, a mutant form of e-coli.
Your supplement manufacturers maintain that this type of synthetic Cysteines is identical and just as effective as the naturally occurring Cysteine produced in milk by nature. They are not. Scientists have never successfully created an orange from scratch in a laboratory. Only nature can. Likewise, neither can science create synthetic nutrients that exactly duplicate or replace naturally occurring nutrients.
What is bio-availability?
As for the bio-availability (your body's natural absorption) of natural versus synthetic Cysteine, there is once again no contest. Although we might be fooled by slick marketing, our body knows the difference, even though synthetics are designed to try to trick it. Natural nutrients are absorbed readily because we are biologically programmed to recognize the naturally occurring compounds as genuine nutrients. Isolated chemicals or synthetics 'nutrients', on the other hand are immediately put on hold until it can determine the cofactors needed to enable their availability. It has been found that 50 percent of every synthetic supplement is rendered useless by the body, leaving only 50 percent for possible conversion. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that any, of this entire half will be converted.
In the old days…
In the past, synthetic sourced Cysteine was never sold as a food supplement. It was used in the food, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries. One of the largest applications is the production of flavors for baking and in personal care, for hair perms. Nowadays, it is being marketed as a food supplement.
Synthetic Cysteine is also one of the 599 additives in cigarettes. Like most cigarette additives, however, its use or purpose is unknown. Its inclusion in cigarettes could offer two benefits: Acting as an expectorant, since smoking increases mucus production in the lungs and increasing the beneficial antioxidant glutathione (which is diminished in smokers).

N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) is sold as a pharmaceutical in most countries, except the Philippines and the United States. In most cases, it is sold as a cough medicine because it breaks up the disulfide bonds in the mucus and thus liquefies it, making it easier to cough up. Therefore, when we say natural or whole-food supplement—we are referring to 'food elements' that contain the complete complex of micro-nutrients (both identified and unidentified) exactly as they exist in nature.
Understand what you are paying for…
You also have to understand, the benefits of using the naturally occurring Cysteine to boost the sulfur cycle to enhance the body's ability to activate strong glutathione doesn't stop there.
In nature, Cysteine is not found in isolation. It exists with a bunch of other amino acids.
Our Ag-Factor contains naturally occurring cofactors that also provide the body with ability to synthesize and activate taurine, cystine and methionine pathways. These sulfur amino acids are central to many core functions in the body effecting endurance, energy, alertness, joint health, immune function, and muscle loss following serious illness or medical treatments.
Natural nutrients are absorbed readily because we are biologically programmed to recognize the naturally occurring compounds as genuine nutrients.
Ag-Factor™ is an "intelligent" food consisting of cysteine peptides, found in minute quantities in hydrolyzed whey protein (cheese) that enables the body to self-produce glutathione & collagen. Ag-Factor™ is a bioactive food absorbed 99.99% by the body
Cysteine can be biosynthesized from food in our body. However, the amount of 'food' that can be converted into Cysteine is minimal.
