According to a group of researchers from the UC San Francisco, consuming sugar sweetened soda might lead to increased signs of aging. These researchers have completed a study which has linked sugary drinks with cell aging. The study was published in the American Journal of Public Health
on October 16, 2014. It has revealed that a group of protective units of DNA that cap chromosome ends in your cells known as telomeres were found to be shorter in the white blood cells of participants who consumed more soda.
The length of telomers within the white blood cells of the human body has also been linked with the human lifespan. Individuals with short sized telomers have commonly been associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer
and heart diseases.
Elissa Epel, a professor of psychiatry at the UCSF and one of the senior authors of this study, mentions that consuming sugar sweetened sodas on a regular basis can influence the development of diseases by straining the metabolic control of sugars and by accelerating cellular aging of your tissues.

Phytoceramides came into the limelight when Dr. Oz described them as one of his top three tips for anti-aging skin care. He also mentioned power cleansing with the help of brushes and Vitamin C serums, but Phytoceramides seemed to have received the maximum press because of the fact that they were one of his only three recommendations over other popular anti-aging solutions. So what is it that makes Phytoceramides so effective? OROGOLD
tries to examine the role played by ceramides in your skin care routine.
Phytoceramides and their role in skin care
Phytoceramides refer to ceramides which have been derived from plants. Although ceramides are found naturally in most food items, wheat flour is considered to be the best source of ceramides. Other food items that contain a decent amount of ceramides include soybeans, eggs and dairy products. Although there is no real research surrounding ceramides and their effectiveness in skin care, some studies have shown how important they can be for the skin. One particular study that deserves to be mentioned was the one conducted by a company known as Hitex. This study categorically showed how ceramide deficiencies can lead to dry skin.

The History of OROGOLD
OROGOLD was established to provide consumers with cutting edge skin care with an emphasis on anti-aging and a luxury experience. The anti-aging industry is growing by leaps and bounds whether it is in scientific technology being developed to extend life or skin care products to improve the appearance of aging skin. Seeing the consumer demand for products that help them retain a youthful appearance inspired the formation of the OROGOLD brand. Fusing the goal to provide the latest in skin care advances with a customer experience that goes above and beyond led to the use of gold as our signature ingredient. All OROGOLD products are infused with the finest gold imported from Italy.
Gold has been synonymous with beauty and luxury since its discovery. Although it is not known for certain when gold was first discovered, it is presumed to have been discovered by early hominids. There is mention of gold in the Bible which is believed to have been committed to paper beginning nearly 3500 years ago. Ancient Egyptian documents and inscriptions contain references to gold mining, geology and metallurgy dating back to at least to 3100 B.C. Ancient royalty was enamored with the metal; Cleopatra was rumored to have slept in a gold mask every night. This was just the beginning of a mystical journey to the present day when gold is still considered a valuable and revered metal. Infusing the products of a world renowned skin care company with this treasured metal is a suitable combination.
