The beverage, referred to as AS10, was originally created to combat the damaging effects of solar rays on astronauts who travel outside the protective layer of the Earth’s atmosphere. AS10 was tested on 180 skin-damaged adults and showed promising results.After four months of drinking two servings daily, dark spots were decreased by 30% and wrinkles by 17%. Digital skin analyses were utilized to confirm the outcomes.
Radiation particles alter oxygen molecules in the physique to generate “free of charge radicals,” unstable electrons that attack cells and may accelerate the aging process. “Consider of them as tiny Pac-guys taking bites out of molecules that are vital for cells to function,” Dr. Aaron Barson, who worked on the study, told the Daily Mail. AS10 consists of high levels of free-radical fighting anti-oxidants derived from fruits such as acai, acerola, prickly pear, green tea, pomegranate, and cupuacu (a member of the cacao household).
The active compounds in AS10 were originally tested on mice in a study published the journal Radiation Research in 2011. Scientists identified that animals exposed to high levels of radiation who received supplements had an 80% survival rate at 250 days and reduced signs and symptoms compared to a 30% survival rate for the control group.
The massive drawback to the new space drink? The expense. A monthly supply of AS10 costs over $100. Not specifically a jar of Tang.
