Anti-Ageing Effects of Sheep Placenta

Anti-Ageing Effects of Sheep Placenta

Rejuvenate Naturally! Aging is a natural process and we cannot stop it or drink a magic potion that would help us look youthful forever. Different factors such as sun exposure and unhealthy lifestyle speed up the aging process and make fine lines and wrinkles develop faster. Signs of aging affect a person’s confidence, but you are not powerless. You don’t even need expensive treatments to look youthful. Healthy lifestyle coupled with regular skincare regimen and intake of New Zealand sourced sheep placenta is bound to make your skin healthy and radiant.


Sheep placenta is a wonderful source of peptides. Peptides are defined as shorter chains of amino acids and they are usually referred to as small proteins. In fact, the primary difference between peptides and proteins is their size. Peptides are molecules consisting of 2-50 amino acids, while proteins contain 50 or more. They have many functions and one of them is influencing the aging process in your body. It is a well-known fact that aging is an evolutionary determined biological process of changes in gene expression resulting in disrupted synthesis or regulatory tissue-specific peptides in all organs and tissues in your body. As a result, these organs experience functional and structural changes. Skin is your largest organ and these changes also affect its health and appearance. Stimulation of peptide production in the organism or their delivery promotes normalisation of these functions[1]. Studies also show that supplementation with peptides, collagen peptide for example, significantly increases skin hydration and improves hallmarks of aging[2].

HGH in Sheep Placenta stimulate the renewal of aged cells

What makes sheep placenta a trusted ally in the fight against aging is its ability to activate the release of HGH (Human Growth Hormones). HGH is a peptide which is naturally produced in the pituitary gland and plays a crucial role in cell regeneration and growth.  When secreted, the HGH becomes active in the bloodstream for a few moments until liver converts it to growth factors such as IGF-1.

It is not uncommon for people to be deficient in HGH. When that happens, a person experiences symptoms such as low energy and thin and dry skin[3]. This is particularly important if you bear in mind that dry skin is more prone to formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Plus, skin that is dry becomes rough to the touch.

HGH has an important role in development, maintenance, and repair of the skin. It acts on skin cells including melanocytes and keratinocytes in the epidermis thus modulating different functions including proliferation, differentiation, migration, and survival[4].

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most popular ingredients in anti-aging and skincare products. It is a naturally-occurring substance in humans and animals. In fact, sheep placenta is a wonderful source of hyaluronic acid. Essentially, hyaluronic acid is a lubricating, clear substance found in skin, joints, within the eye sockets. The substance has a huge impact on the appearance of your skin.

Benefits of hyaluronic acid for your skin are numerous including skin moisturizing effects to combat dryness. Lack of dryness makes your skin nourished, hydrated, eliminates dandruff (which occurs when the scalp is too dry) and it reduces the appearance of wrinkles[5].
