Leaf Bud Extract Of Poplar Tree Can Fight Aging!
A recent study by a group of researchers led by Xavier Vitrac has revealed that leaf buds of poplar trees have antioxidant properties that can act against aging.
Antioxidants are the major ingredients of several anti-aging creams. They fight against the free radicals in the body that are responsible for cell damage and aging.
Earlier studies have demonstrated the positive effects of poplar buds in treating health conditions such as sinusitis, cold, arthritis and sunburn.
The study was aimed at testing the efficacy of antioxidants in poplar bud extract as an ingredient in anti-aging creams.
It was found that the extract not only demonstrated moderate antioxidant activity but also anti-aging properties against the cells tested in the laboratory.
The team members opine that with these results very soon the extract can find a place in the nutraceutical and cosmetic formulations as a potential antioxidant.
