ADDED AMINO ACIDS
Your Skin and Connective Tissue
Your skin is the largest organ in the human body and because it is your barrier protecting you from the outside world, it is exposed to environmental stress and it is the giveaway indicator of our age and lifestyle.
Your skin can be divided into two layers:
The epidermis - an outer barrier layer
The dermis - an inner structural layer
Collagen in your skin (and other organs) is a simple protein made up of various amino acids, of which Proline, Hydroxyproline, and Glycine are the most abundant. The collagen matrix is responsible for organ and skin support, structural firmness, elasticity, hydration, and the constant production of new skin cells.
The more collagen you have, the more healthy, elastic and supple your skin is and the more youthful it appears. Alarmingly, we lose 1% of the collagen in our skin each year after the age of 20. This loss results in skin ageing, including wrinkles, fine lines, dry, blemished and thinning skin. It is also the reason for joint and connective tissue degeneration and dehydration.
The body's natural decline in its ability to regenerate new cells, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and loss of youthful plumpness, are all visible signs of ageing. Environmental stress factors like UV rays, cold and pollution are all causes of accelerated ageing resulting in dull, rough, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
Intensive research over the past decade into skin ageing has shown that the major factor between youthful and ageing skin and joints, is the health and integrity of the collagen matrix, the support structure below the skin’s surface and joint cartilage. Specifically, in ageing skin, the collagen matrix is weakened, broken and fragmented, impairing the structure of the dermis. As the collagen matrix degenerates it becomes brittle, fragile and loses its capacity to maintain hydration. Maintaining the health and structure of the collagen matrix is key to targeting these skin conditions and can dramatically improve the skin’s youthful, healthy appearance. Studies show that the most effective way to maintain the collagen matrix is to boost the body’s own production of collagen by ingesting collagen peptides.
The Key to Youthful Skin
Did you know that Collagen accounts for 75% of youthful skin, and it is the main structural element of the skin in the dermis. It provides the structure supporting the epidermis and gives your skin its youthful fullness. When the collagen matrix is damaged, skin loses its fullness, elasticity and begins to sag, wrinkle and age.
Science & Studies
Our formula utilises high-grade bio-available collagen peptides and essential micro-nutrients to help your body rebuild and strengthen the collagen matrix. The Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides have a low molecular weight. The collagen fibres formed, strengthen the collagen matrix in the dermis (skin) and connective tissue (in other parts of the body). Collagen improves skin elasticity by increasing the density of fibroblasts (the cells responsible for rebuilding connective tissue) and improves skin hydration, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and helps repair joints. Drinking Collagen also stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production. When the body senses collagen in the bloodstream, it stimulates the proliferation of fibroblasts reinforcing the collagen matrix and playing a critical role in wound healing.
The dual action makes Drinkable Collagen a highly effective skincare and general health solution. Consumed on a daily basis, it assists to return your body to a younger state of collagen production - resulting in a visibly more youthful and a more energetic you.
The Collagen used in Drinkable Collagen
In the nutri-aesthetics and nutri-cosmetics industries, supplementation with collagen peptides is growing in popularity due to their high quality and efficacy. However, in order to be beneficial to the skin, collagen peptides must be bio-available, they need to be easily and quickly absorbed by the body. The collagen used in our products are thus highly beneficial to the body.
Bio Active Drinkable Collagen Plus contains pure Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides (bovine), which are low in sodium and eliminate the potential for mercury contamination. Peptides are extracted using a gentle enzymatic hydrolysis process to achieve the lowest possible molecular weight. The lower the molecular weight, the easier it is for the body to absorb the collagen.
Once hydrolysed the peptides are stable and soluble. The Hydrolysed collagen proteins used in our products are known to be the most abundant in Type I and Type II collagen, the same type that is found in the skin and connective tissue. Studies have shown that fragmentation of collagen fibres leads to a decrease in total collagen, and accelerates the ageing process - especially above 60 years of age. Several studies have also demonstrated the bio-availability of hydrolysed collagen peptides - more than 90% of hydrolysed collagen peptides are absorbed by the body with 95% absorbed in the first 12 hours. Collagen peptides may also trigger the body’s own natural process of collagen production by stimulating the proliferation of fibroblasts - the cells responsible for new collagen generation. This is evident in the increase in fibroblast density and the diameter of collagen fibres in the skin, both of which improve the skin’s strength, suppleness and structure.
Taken daily for up to 12 weeks, the collagen peptides in combination with the other active ingredients aim to
Increase skin hydration levels
Increase skin smoothness by reducing the number of fine lines
Prevent the formation of deep wrinkles
Improve skin suppleness
Help repair damaged joints
Improve hair strength and stimulate regrowth
Improve daily energy levels

Taken orally, collagen peptides significantly improve basic skin condition and connective tissue structure. Taken on a daily basis, they help to increase skin hydration levels, improve skin tone, radiance and structure - and reduce fine lines as well as prevent the formation of deep wrinkles.

I love to mix my Probiotic Protein with my Collagen. It makes a delicious smoothie with all the nutrients I need for the day.. and the UV protection is an awesome benefit. I take it 1st thing in the morning
- it is such a hassle-free, easy and awesome way to start the day.
Thank you Bio Active Aesthetica!
