Anti-aging Benefits Beyond Wrinkle Reduction

Rather than anti-aging claims, these authors sought to quantify well-being as it relates to the effects of a new active: centcyamine. The authors confirmed a correlation between well-being scores, instrumental observations, self-assessment and, indirectly, in vitro mechanistic data.

Not a day goes by without encountering articles, interviews or advertisements that contain the term well-being, which often is connected with messaging that consumers are motivated to improve their well-being with one purchase, activity, regime, etc.1 Governments are called upon to assure the well-being of their country’s population; the term well-being even figures into the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) definition of health from 1948, although it was not further defined.2 Somewhat circular is the definition of well-being found in the Random House Dictionary: a good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness and prosperity.3
