In the last batches of Apollo's Hegemony products, another glue was used for lids under the caps. The glue is weaker than previously used, this is why the lid often stays inside the cap when unscrewing the bottle. This does not affect the quality of products because during storage the lid adheres to the bottle and protects its contents.
Apollo's Hegemony Clear Skin is an effective anti-acne preparation of the latest generation. It is a combination of unique ingredients whose positive action has been confirmed by numerous clinical studies. The careful selection of synergistically-acting active substances allowed to maximize the effectiveness of the supplement
One dose of Clear Skin contains 750 mg of vitamin B5 and 250 mg of acetyl L-carnitine. This is the optimal combination of two substances which are necessary to maintain the proper skin condition. In order that vitamin B5 fulfils its therapeutic role, very high doses of it are needed. Such high doses could be potentially dangerous to your health or simply uneconomical. The reduction to a safe level, which is essential for the efficient action of vitamin B5, was possible thanks to the addition of acetyl L-carnitine
Acetyl L-carnitine has a wide range of positive effects which are not limited only to the intensification of the vitamin B5 action. That is why the benefits of Clear Skin will be appreciated not only by the people who care about the perfect appearance of their skin.
Vitamin B5 is essential for the proper conduction of life processes of each cell. It is a mixture of several chemical compounds: pantothenic acid, pantethine (a derivative of pantothenic acid), panthenol (a compound from the alcohols group; although it does not occur in nature, it is biologically active according to humans and animals) and coenzyme A (biologically active form of pantothenic acid). Almost all sources confirm the safety use of vitamin B5. It is water-soluble and its excess is excreted in urine, without causing any toxicity
The influence of vitamin B5 on skin
Vitamin B5 plays an important role in the regeneration of skin and mucous membranes. It accelerates the healing of wounds and intensifies the processes of repairing damaged tissues. It regulates the function of sebaceous glands and reduces the excessive secretion of sebum, which is the basic cause of the formation of pimples on the skin (mainly on face, but also on back, shoulders and neck). Thanks to the inhibition of excessive sebum secretion by the sebaceous glands and the unblocking of pores, it prevents lumps, pustules, blackheads, purulent cysts or unaesthetic oily residue, which causes skin shine
Acne can be also caused by the disorders of endocrine system. Especially people who take steroid drugs or anabolic agents (for example those which help to gain muscle mass) should pay attention to the risk of acne. The consequence may be, for example, steroid acne. Vitamin B5 is necessary for the synthesis of particular steroid hormones (including testosterone, cortisol, estradiol and progesterone). This means that in a suitable dose, it can effectively reduce the malfunctioning of the endocrine system, whose symptoms are undesirable skin lesions.
One of the many benefits of taking vitamin B5 is its strong anti-inflammatory effect, and in people who have the deficiency such symptoms as problems with wound healing and susceptibility to infections can be observed. The process of acne formation is greatly influenced by microorganisms, mainly by anaerobic bacteria responsible for inflammations which occur in large numbers in the estuaries of sebaceous glands; therefore, vitamin B5’s anti-inflammatory properties undoubtedly contribute to the disappearance of acne lesions. They are also helpful in fighting other epidermal dysfunctions, such as folliculitis.
Other benefits of taking vitamin B5
The vitamin’s role does not only come down to its positive effect on skin. As a vitamin essential for the functioning of all cells, it also affects the normal process of energy production, prevents fatigue, improves the functioning of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and nervous systems
Moreover, it determines normal protein, sugar and lipid metabolism and participates in the synthesis of neurotransmitters – dopamine and serotonin. Present in vitamin B5, pantothenic acid is necessary for the production of antibodies which protect the organism from viral and bacterial infections.
The right level of vitamin B5 in the organism is particularly important for people who are physically active. Its deficiency causes problems with coordination, joint pain and stiffness and muscle contractions, together with the feeling of fatigue
Academic studies have demonstrated that vitamin B5 significantly improves hair pigmentation and health. It greatly limits hair loss, inhibits premature greying, improves its appearance, volume and general condition.
Acetyl L-carnitine (ALCAR) – an acetylated form of carnitine, a vitamin-derivative, a nutrient necessary for the normal functioning of the nervous and muscular systems. However, acetyl L-carnitine is characterised by better chemical stability and definitely better bioavailability, particularly in the case of nerve tissue (it crosses the blood-brain barrier).
Acetyl L-carnitine and the nervous system
The main benefits of using ALC are connected with its influence on cholinergic activity in the brain. The acetyl group of ALC affects the increase of acetylcholine concentration – a neurotransmitter responsible for transmitting nerve cell impulses, activating cognitive processes, enabling the processes of learning and memorising. Thus, acetyl L-carnitine supports memory processes, contributes to the improvement of concentration and fact association. It significantly improves general cognitive functions.
It improves the organism’s physical capacity and fat tissue reduction – perfect for athletes
ALC is often used in sports, mainly in order to improve the organism’s condition and boost regeneration after training. It also plays a significant role in fat tissue reduction, above all by improving and accelerating the processes of fat metabolism in the organism.
Acetyl L-carnitine is necessary for the transport of fatty acids to mitochondria where they are oxidised, thanks to which energy necessary for the maintenance of all vital functions in the organism is produced. The efficiency of the process is particularly relevant in the case of long physical effort, when the organism and energy production are dependent on high-energy fatty substances.
Acetyl L-carnitine contributes to the optimisation of energy processes in your muscles and the improvement of oxygen efficiency and muscle strength. It inhibits also the catabolism (breakdown) of muscles.
Acetyl L-carnitine vs toxins
Acetyl L-carnitine is one of the strongest antioxidants. The essential process in detoxification of the body is the removal of free radicals, which cause many medical conditions. Acetyl L-carnitine has also valuable chelating properties concerning this mechanism. The process of chelation (binding) consists thus in the deactivation of metallic elements. As a result, toxic substances are excreted harmlessly from the body system
The combination of acetyl-L carnitine and vitamin B5 – Dr Leung's hypothesis
Apart from the proven influence on the human body, acetyl L-carnitine is also an ideal catalyst for many different substances, supporting and intensifying their action. One of the most successful combinations is the combination of acetyl L-carnitine with vitamin B5 for healthy and flawless skin.
In 1995, Dr Lit-Hung Leung puts forward a hypothesis that the main cause of acne is vitamin B deficiency. He demonstrated that acne is a result of impaired lipid metabolism and is a consequence of coenzyme A deficiency, which in turn is caused by the deficiency of pantothenic acid
The researcher gave their patients high doses of pantothenic acid (about 10 g per day). The effect was decreased sebum excretion and quick resolution of pathological skin conditions. About two-week treatment resulted in smoother and more beautiful skin. This research was continued by Jilian L. Capodice who was the first to combine pantothenic acid with L-carnitine in 2012.
Not only did L-carnitine show the ability to reduce sebum excretion in a cell line of human sebaceous cells, but also helped to significantly minimise the therapeutic dose of pantothenic acid. Action of this compound arises mainly from its capacity to transport fatty acids through mitochondrial membranes, where they can be oxidised. Safety and efficacy of the combination of vitamin B with L-carnitine has been confirmed in studies by dr Jeffrey Dach
Clear Skin is an effective product for people who care about the appearance of their skin, suffer from persistent acne or other unwanted skin conditions (folliculitis, inflammations and infections associated with redness and roughness of the skin, but also papules, pustules, blackheads and cysts). Thanks to the combination of two active ingredients with a proven therapeutic effect, a safe and effective preparation has been designed, working from the inside out and hence reaching the source of the problem.
Active substances included in Clear Skin have no side effects, while showing an extremely broad spectrum of positive action on the human body. Clear Skin will also be appreciated by athletes and people who want to maintain a proper body weight. Apart from flawless skin, supplement users can additionally benefit from improved physical capacity and recovery as well as better reduction of fat tissue.
The product is intended for people that have skin problems, especially acne related. It contains substances that regulate the sebaceous glands and help the healing process of wounds. Together with a well balanced diet and suitable care, it can significantly improve the condition of the skin and reduce the symptoms.

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
L-carnitine is a vitamin-like substance, synthesized in the body from amino acids (lysine and methionine) and available in foods of animal origin. It is a component of muscle (including cardiac muscle) and nerve tissue. Involved in the metabolism of fats affecting the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of the cell, facilitating their burning and energy production. It is a potent antioxidant, contributing to the improvement of the aerobic condition and accelerating the recovery after intense exercise. Recommended for use for representatives of endurance sports. In the sports supplementation there are available mono-preparation of carnitine (in liquid form, acetylated [ALC], esterified [see. Propionyl-L-carnitine]) and multicomponent (e.g. in a complex with organic acids - see. L-carnitine tartrate) energetic, weight loss and improving the exercise capacity supplements, to be purchased at www.muscle-zone.pl
