Patented Extraction

Maysama’s skincare is formulated with Aspalathin-enriched green rooibos tea extract, an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient [API]. Sourced from South Africa with sustainable farming methods, Maysama’s green rooibos undergoes patented extraction, which concentrates the main flavonoid, Aspalathin, responsible for its antioxidant properties, making it 70 times more potent than standard rooibos tea.

How it works

Leading photobiomodulation scientist, Dr Michael Hamblin, attributes Maysama’s results to a biochemical reaction, which enhances mitochondrial metabolism.

Mitochondrial respiration relies on glucose as a food source. As we age, mitochondria can become dysfunctional and the rate of mitochondrial respiration decreases. Aspalathin-enriched green rooibos helps mitochondria with the uptake of glucose, increasing the rate of mitochondrial respiration and increasing ATP output.

Red and near infrared light also increases ATP output by increasing the rate at which the enzyme ATP synthase operates. Free radicals are produced as a by-product of this process.

Aspalathin-enriched green rooibos corrects substrate metabolism for mitochondrial respiration, which accelerates and amplifies the action of red-NIR LED light. So, aside from its antioxidant function, which helps buffer free radicals produced by LED light, Maysama’s green rooibos extract works synergistically with red light to help improve mitochondria bioenergetics. This unique property of green rooibos sets it aside from other antioxidants, like green tea, when used in conjunction with red light therapy treatments.

Formulated with Green Rooibos Extract for potent antioxidant protection and loaded with humectants, which aid light penetration, Maysama’s Green Rooibos Pressed Serum is the perfect co-treatment with your Red LED Light Therapy Treatment.
