Bio Active Collagen Plus gives you everything you need for stronger hair, skin and nails in ONE delicious fruity flavored drink.
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 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
