A supplement made from placental ingredients for powerful cellular regeneration and the development of strong and balanced systems.
The placenta connects between the mother’s body and the fetus via the uterus and it facilitates the exchange of gases and nutrients. The placenta is claimed to contain beneficial nutrients (iron, selenium, copper and zinc), amino acids, peptides, vitamins, nucleic acids, growth factors and abundant extracellular matrix (ECM). In plants, the placenta is a specialized region within an ovary to which the ovules are attached to. The placenta of the plant is produced in the heart of their young buds which functions in nourishing the fruit of the plant during its growing stage.

Cellular Mechanism of MF+ Placen
The extracellular matrix (ECM), present within all tissues and organs, is the largest component in the dermal layer which provides the biochemical network and structural integrity to all surrounding cells. They are comprised of collagens, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, elastin, fibronectin and glycoproteins. However, intrinsic (natural) and extrinsic ageing of the skin caused by lifestyle habits such as UV radiation, air pollution, unbalanced diet, smoking or alcoholic consumption will cause degradation of the ECM components leading to the development of wrinkles, sagging and non-elastic skin. Henceforth, MF+ Placen, extracted from vegetal placenta in its purest and native form containing anti-ageing ingredients are introduced to consumers to maintain youthfulness, radiance, whitening and elasticity of the skin.
MF+ Placen, rich in active Dermacenta™ (scientific code 511573), a proprietary ingredient extracted from the buds of a rare non-GMO (non-genetically modified) soybean plant, originated from France contained nutrients similar to human or animal placenta are available in 2 mL x 5 or 10 vials. They are naturally extracted via cold extraction Cryo-PRO™ proteolytic enzyme extraction technology, does not involve and heating thus maintaining its cellular structural walls and DNA cellular components. They contain many bioactive components, beneficial nutrients designed to modulate the ECM thus maintain skin youthfulness, radiance, elasticity, whitening and most prominently, to prevent anti-aging.

Activation of Growth Factors and Cytokines by MF+ Placen
The skin is divided into three layers: the epidermal, dermal and the hypodermal layer. Within the skin dermal layer, contains the extracellular matrix (ECM) which provide the structural and integrity network to all cells. Administered MF+ Placen will be absorbed from skin epithelial cells followed
by binding to specific receptors present on the surface of the targeted cells followed by activating various growth factors and cytokines thereby regulating the survival, growth, migration and dierentiation of the cells (Table 1). One example shown here is that MF+ Placen could convey messages to fibroblast cells to produce collagen which give elasticity to the skin to slower down the aging process (Figure 1).
