    Brown 'age' or 'sun' spots

    Shop Now
    Has anyone noticed their flat, brown spots (not sure, but think called sun spots, age spots or liver spots) disappear on paleo?

    I know a lot of people notice an improvement in skin condition, but was just wondering with reference to these, stubborn 'ugly' spots in particular.

    I started this journey by going sugar free, not paleo, but have noticed since paleo (August) that my 'old lady's' right hand is almost as young looking as my left. Not quite, but nearly. I did have some 'age spots' on that hand (we drive on the left in Australia, hence the reason for my old lady hand on that side)

    Liver, or age spots are a subcutaneous accumulation of oxidized cholesterols that are damaged by trans fats intake. Ingestion of trans fats in liquid grocery store vegetable, soy, corn & other industrially processed oils & "foods" causes a body wide free radical cascade and among many negative actions they also damage the body’s cholesterol structure & impair the skins ability to synthesize vitamin D.

    “Lipofucsin, the “fatty brown stuff” that makes up liver or age spots is largely comprised of oxidized fats, and by the time lipofucsin shows up on the skin there’s sure to already be more of it in the brain, liver, and other organs, doing massive damage to our health. It is clear that oxidized fats damage our health on a very fundamental cellular level.” Integrated Supplements Blog: Why You Should Avoid Oxidized Cholesterol in the Foods (and Whey Proteins!) You Eat

    Your body can only use the oils & fats that you eat in your diet for cholesterol production & cellular membrane structure, repair & rebuilding, so regular consumption of good high quality saturated fats is imperative.

    Sun spots are different to liver spots. I've had the smaller sun spots on the backs of my hands for at least a decade, and I have believed they are becoming diminished to the point I think they might be a quarter of what they were. Just didnt want to be the first to say so, hehe. Also, my skins ability to cope with the Queensland sun is improved.
