Ageing in an unavoidable process. It can’t be stopped but it can be postponed.
Skin is the largest organ in human body, which is responsible for:
It is made up of two layers. The outer one – the epidermis and the inner one – the dermis. Epidermis is responsible for protecting you from environmental exposure, such as bacteria, sunlight, chemicals and of giving skin its colour and also it is making new skin cells. Dermis is the deeper part of the skin, also called living skin. It gives the skin physical strength.
Collagen is the major protein in the human body and a major component of the skin. There are different types of collagen in the body, where majority is type 1 collagen. One gram of collagen type 1 is actually stronger and more resistant to rapture than 1 gram of steel and is mainly found in skin, ligaments and tendons. Because collagen type 1 is the main element of our skin structure, that’s the reason why is it so beneficial and important for our skin. Collagen gives our skin youthful look, firmness, radiance and elasticity and supports production of new cells. As it is being produced by the body it is a natural ingredient.
Major functions of collagen:
Regular gelatine is difficult to digest so contemporary Hi-Technology allows to obtain highly hydrolysed collagen peptides via physical or enzymatic hydrolysis. Small molecular way improves bioavailability. Our diet is nowadays deficient in gelatine-rich particles because we eat mainly muscle tissue instead of skin, cartilage, blood vessels, animal organs and bone broth. Extra collagen is needed for bio-corection of the endogenous insufficiency of connective tissue (degenerative joints disease, spine degeneration, hernia, varicose veins, wrinkles, aneurysm, diverticulitis).
Oral collagen peptides supplementation causes the improvement of cellulite, stretch marks (bodybuilding, pregnancy), wrinkles, UV-damaged skin and facial skin conditions like: facial skin moisture, elasticity, wrinkles and roughness. Oral collagen supplementation improves skin barrier function and its mechanical properties.
Ageing is an unavoidable process. For centuries people, especially females, were trying to find the “magic bullet”, “the youth fountain” or the miracle formula that would let them be forever young. Unfortunately, the ageing process is a natural process, the evolution process. It can’t be stopped but it can be postponed. As we age, collagen production, begins to slow down. After, an average, the age of 25, body slowly starts to age. The changes are very slow and can’t be seen or felt than, but the changes slowly start to happen inside the body. Additional factors which contribute to skin ageing are: smoking, bad diet (nutrition), sugar high diet, pollution and ultraviolet radiation (photo ageing) and hormones.
There is no magic potion which would let you stop ageing however there are foods and supplements available which will allow you to slow down and postpone the ageing process together with healthy lifestyle and diet. When you age, the skin becomes dry, thin and becomes to sag. It loses its elasticity and firmness and the process of new cell production is being slowed down so skin does not look so good anymore. Free radicals damage cells, leading to, among other things, premature wrinkles. To postpone the effects of ageing it is very important to have a healthy balanced, diet, exercise, avoid stress and take supplements. Taking supplements, which enhance collagen production is the best way to maintain healthy, youthful skin and body.
The best solution for optimal dietary supplementation is to:
