Collagen is increasing in popularity as an anti-aging supplement, but does it actually work? Let's take a look at the latest news on Collagen Supplementation.
Both liquid and tablet forms of collagen have been used for years in the beauty and cosmetic industry, promising to plump and reduce fine lines. Unfortunately most forms of collagen supplements have shows little benefit to the skin due to poor absorption. In short, collagen supplements often contain molecules that are too large to absorb, couple that with degradation from gastric juices during digestion and oral supplementation has been a bit of a waste of time until now.
Lucky for us, recent research and improved technology means that new collagen supplement powders such as NutriOrganics Collagen Beauty now use hydrolyzed collagen. The usually long chain collagen proteins are broken down into short individual peptides that make up the hydrolyzed collagen supplement - these smaller collagen peptides are absorbed quickly by the body, therefore not having time to be damaged during digestion. Once absorbed the peptides stimulate the body's own natural collagen production. Hydrolyzed collagen has been found to be 90% bio-available, add Vitamin C to the supplement for collagen synthesis and you have a potent formula that will deliver results.
As a Skin Treatment Clinic we recommend NutriOrganics Collagen Beauty powder, which is available from our online store.
