White truffle is one of the most exclusive
food on the market, it is not only delicious
but also extremely rare because it only
grows in some specific areas and only
Truffles have been known since the
beginning of time and were greatly
appreciated by the Romans, who believed
this precious fungus was generated by
lightning thrown by Jupiter near an oak.
White truffles have also always been
considered an aphrodisiac food and
apparently Casanova was using them to
seduce women. This feature seems to be
triggered by the chemicals creating the
truffle aroma, given that in nature truffles
attract mammals consuming the fruiting
bodies and contribute to spore dispersal
due to pheromone-like molecules.
W Tr-Active was tested to evaluate the
gene expression modulation of over
42,000 genes on two different cell lines.
W Tr-Active was able to successfully
modulate several groups of genes (MMPs,
extracellular matrix proteins, aquaporins,
and damaged protein degradation
processes and vitagenes) involved in
preventing skin from aging and promoting
skin health by delivering a broad spectrum
The in vivo test proved that W Tr-Active
was able to act as a powerful multiple
anti-aging active ingredient able to reduce
wrinkles and eye bags, increase skin tone
and thickness (filler effect) and significantly
improve skin moisture.
