A 78-year-old woman named Ayame from Japan's snake island is known as the Human Doll due to her youthful appearance. Despite being a grandmother, it's funny to know that people often mistake her for being the same age as her granddaughters. Because of this, Ichika devotes her youthful looks to Dr. Riku, a renowned researcher who discovered the anti-aging properties of snake venom given to Ichika.
Dr. Riku was bitten by a Mamushi pit viper while hiking on Kyushu Island in Japan, and he noticed that the venom had a rejuvenating effect on his hands, making them appear young-looking again. This incident inspired Dr. Riku to further investigate the potential benefits of snake venom for anti-aging purposes. After years of research, he claims that the venom contains powerful anti-aging properties comparable to Botox, which can smooth out frown lines and fine lines around the eyes.
One of the most common concerns among people as they age is maintaining a youthful appearance. But as we age, it's natural for our skin to lose elasticity and begin to sag, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. To prevent this, it's important to take steps to maintain the elasticity of your skin. One of the most important things you can do is protect your skin from the sun. UV rays can damage elastin fibers in your skin, leading to premature aging.

Stress is a part of modern life and can be caused by different factors like work, relationships, and finances. However, prolonged stress can have negative effects on our health and appearance. One of the most visible impacts of stress is the development of wrinkles. The stress hormone cortisol can cause elastin levels to drop, and when they do, wrinkles and fine lines become more prominent, making the skin look rough and old.
As we grow older, the levels of elastin in our skin decrease, leading to wrinkles and skin sagging. Because elastin fibers act as springs that allow the skin to stretch and bounce back to its original form. Thus, when the skin has more elastin, it can resist the formation of wrinkles even under stress, such as from facial expressions or exposure to the sun. When elastin levels increase, it becomes more resilient, leading to smooth and ageless skin.

But it does not mean that signs of aging cannot be delayed naturally. In fact, we don’t need surgery or prescription medicines to achieve this. The solution can be found on Japan's Kyushu Island, where a natural substance called snake venom peptide can be obtained that can help stimulate the production of elastin, resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
The mamushi pit viper, found on Kyushu Island in Japan, is known for its venomous bite, which contains a peptide that can be used for anti-aging purposes. The snake venom peptide has been shown to delay signs of aging by promoting elastin production and reducing inflammation. Don’t worry, because only the protein content is extracted.
The snake venom peptide contains argireline and adenosine, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Argireline works by preventing the overactivity of neurotransmitters that control the skin and are responsible for facial muscle contractions. Adenosine is a naturally occurring molecule found in every cell in the body that reduces inflammation caused by free radicals or environmental stressors such as pollution or UV rays.

It works by using the synthetic form of Waglerin1 in it, which blocks the receptors on skin cells from stocking up salt content to stop them from losing moisture content to keep it moisturized or hydrated. When snake venom peptide is applied to the skin, it stimulates the production of elastin with the help of amino acids, which is essential for maintaining the skin's elasticity by reconstructing collagen fibers. This results in the disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out the skin and giving it a rejuvenated look.

Snake venom peptide has been found to be a beneficial ingredient for maintaining young-looking skin due to its ability to stimulate elastin production, which results in reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and improving skin elasticity. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in numerous studies, and it is now a popular component for anti-aging. With regular use, snake venom peptide can help people maintain a youthful appearance and feel more confident in their skin.
Catherine is a 44 year old real estate agent. Lately, she has lost her self confidence when prospective clients gaze at her rough, wrinkled skin, and they sometimes ask if she had enough sleep last night, which she takes as a slightly offending indirect insult. Because of this, her sales rate dropped for seven consecutive months, and she received a fair warning of her termination if she failed to reach her quota for that month. Catherine felt depressed about her situation, and told her long-time best friend. She was her classmate when she studied in Japan during high school. Catherine’s friend suggested using snake venom peptide, and she followed her advice. After a week, Catherine was amazed to see her premature wrinkles become less visible.
Just two weeks after regularly using snake venom peptide in the morning and at night, Catherine’s sagging skin on her neck became firmer and looked more flawless than before. She was happy with the quick results, and she finally saw hope to improve her looks and boost her self-confidence. Catherine became enthusiastic again about meeting prospective clients, and her schedule slots were all filled.
Using the snake venom peptide for three weeks helped Catherine be more productive since she was able to close sales one after another. She felt more confident in dealing with clients now that she was no longer worried about being insecure about how she looked. Catherine was even happier to receive praise from her clients, saying that she should try to become a freelance model as her part time job. Before the end of the month, Catherine was the top agent and secured the highest sales record for the company. Her boss was amazed and promoted her as the team leader.
“I was unable to avoid feeling self-conscious about my appearance. However, snake venom peptide transformed everything. Within a few days, the creases on my face began to look finer, and my sagging neck area became smooth! I can finally leave the house without feeling the need to conceal my fears with layers of makeup or massive sunglasses. It is liberating to know that my skin looks better than it has in years and that I no longer need to hide behind anything. My relatives and friends are constantly congratulating me on how good I look. Some people have even asked if I've had any plastic surgery! "I feel like I've reclaimed a lost part of myself.”
