Glowing skin with collagen

The skin is made up of several layers that need to be fed from inside out. Creams are great for the superficial layers, but they only can have a temporary effect because they work only on the skin surface.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the skin, making up 75-80% of it. The skin requires optimum levels of well-organized collagen fibers to ensure that skin retains its elasticity, firmness and moisture-binding capacity. Collagen is abundant when you are young, but unfortunately, its production starts to decline at about age 25, and continues. Every year our body’s own collagen diminishes by 1% and it decreases even more in postmenopausal women. The collagen cells in the dermis deteriorates from aging skin as well as skin exposure to the sun and environmental influences and smoking.

Fragmented collagen cells reduce collagen synthesis as well as the skin’s elasticity. This in turn leads to a reduction of collagen density in the dermis. A scientific study demonstrates that the daily consumption of collagen is able to induce a clinically measurable improvement in the depth of facial wrinkles, skin elasticity and hydration. The density in the dermis increased, so the skin became thicker and the deep lines in your face reduce. Your skin will be kept also flexible and elastic. Wrinkle reduction of up to 30% can be visible and the skin tone improves.

Another study in 2015 (Research group led by G. Schlippe) published a paper on the improvement of skin physiology in connection with the oral intake of collagen. In doing so, the clinical dermatological tests demonstrated that an intake over a longer period significantly improves the skin’s elasticity, moisture and roughness. There were also improvements in skin hydration.

In summary, the regular consumption of collagen is an easy way to boost your collagen stores in the body and it can reverse signs of aging and have beautifying effects.
