The Beauty Elixir
Collagen, the beauty protein, is a fibrous protein that’s a key component in keeping your skin glowing and youthful, while also providing your whole body with the building blocks it needs to support your body’s connective tissues (ligaments, joints, bones).
Your skin is made of 75% collagen, but unfortunately, after the age of 25, collagen production beings to reduce at a rate of 1.5% a year. After the age of 45, your collagen levels may plummet as much as 30%! The result is wrinkles, fine lines and dry, saggy skin, if we only focus on what is visible.
What can you do about it?
Well, you could always go for collagen injections, but that’s invasive, expensive and temporary. Drinking collagen, rather than injecting it, provides the entire body with the building blocks it needs to create and repair your collagen supply. It even helps kick-start your own collagen production.
Let's get technical
Hydroxyproline is the amino acid that is most effective at creating collagen and type I marine collagen contains a higher concentration of this amino acid than any other type of collagen.
A study has found that supplementing with oral collagen significantly increased skin hydration and boosted collagen density. What does that mean? It means it actually works and the results - suppler, firmer, more youthful skin - are visible to the naked eye.
The elixir of youth
But you could drink all the collagen in the world and not get the full benefits if you’re missing the one component necessary for collagen formation: vitamin C.
Keeping in mind all of the above, we’ve put together Collagen Drink. It contains type I marine collagen and vitamin C, together with blueberry extract. It is, quite simply, a complete package designed to rejuvenate you from the inside out.
