Coenzyme-A and the Skin Health Connection

By Nickolaos D. Skouras Ph.D.

Aside from the biological functions that coenzyme-A has in regard to addressing the proper detoxification of harmful substances, while correcting and alleviating specific >biochemical imbalances within the body, and enhancing skin regeneration by promoting the synthesis of spingolipids, and squalene, (fatty acids that form the protective moisture barrier.) Proteoglycans, and glucosaminoglycans, (the primary constituents of the top layer of the human epidermis,) while including the (cell's adhesion and glue-like proteins,) such as fibronectin, vitronectin, and finally the (structural components) collagen's and elastin. Consider the neurological connection of the skin as not only the biggest and heaviest organ in the human body, it's also one of the most complex, second only to the central nervous system (the brain, and spinal cord) in terms of it's complexity. Another very interesting thing is that it derives emryonically from the same cells as the central nervous system. It also has tremendous number of similarities to the nervous system biochemically, for example, certain neurotransmitters, and neuromodulators actually affect the human skin cells in a manner analogous to the way they affect brain cells. One of the things that current research has showed us, is that skin cells can be damaged by the same sort of processes that cause excitatory neurotoxic damage. An example would be that if someone were to take a dose of strychnine (poison) and then undergoes convulsions, not only would their muscles sustain damage, but also so would their nerve cells. The mechanisms by which this occurs are now well understood and the process can now be prevented. Now that we have this understanding of the skin's biochemistry, and neurological connection we can come right to the point of the matter.
Coenzyme-A fights stress! We all know that Stress (and especially adrenal exhaustion) is the underlining cause of all of the major disease conditions, especially here in the U.S. But consider how stress effects our human emotions, such as anxiety, anger, and sadness, or depression, and that these excitatory emotions are directly connected and have deleterious effects to your skin's health. The question now arises, how to prevent the neurotoxic effects that stress has on skin? The obvious answer is our Coenzyme-A product! Amongst the numerous biological, and biochemical functions that Coenzyme-A, has in the human body two of its primary functions that it automatically prioritizes in, are the synthesis of the adrenal hormones, and the acetylation functions of all the key neurotransmitters in the brain. Such neurotransmitters as (serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, and most importantly, acetylcholine.)
