What Else You Need to Know: This supplement contains a unique skin-repair and -protection blend with collagen types I and III—essential for healthy-, young-looking skin. The restorative blend also has chondroitin sulfate and moisturizing hyaluronic acid to support visible firmness and elasticity in all the right places*.
Collagen is a blend of amino acids (the smaller building blocks of larger proteins throughout the body) and a component of connective tissues such as cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bones, and skin. Collagen types I and III are the most abundant forms found in the skin and are important for its structure, elasticity, and firmness. As we age, we lose collagen due to slower production of the protein and also due to collagenase, the enzyme in skin that breaks it down. These two factors are natural bodily processes that contribute to aging and the breakdown of healthy tissue, so it can be helpful to add in a high-quality collagen supplement. The addition of hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate the skin by increasing water retention. Vitamin C, red wine extract, and grapeseed extract are powerful antioxidants that scavenge free radicals to reduce oxidative stress (a major contributor to aging). Studies have shown a significant reduction of facial lines, wrinkles, and dryness with an increase in collagen content.
Clinical Results: In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of women receiving 2.5 or 5.0 g of collagen or placebo once daily for 8 weeks:
- Skin elasticity in both collagen-dosage groups showed a statistically significant improvement in comparison to placebo
