We are all looking for the elixir of "eternal youth", and always have the desire to look attractive and youthful on our minds. However, time passes and the alterations of our endocrine-metabolic state change, as the structure of our skin undergoes changes related to the ageing process as well as to the influences of the external environment. As we age, the synthesis of collagen by the body is reduced, so that hair and nails begin to thin, the joints and cartilages deteriorate, but as the most "visible" consequences are to be seen on the skin and tissues, suffice it to say that collagen is the main protein of connective tissue (80%), the tissue that makes up our skin, muscles, hair, nails and cartilage. "Only" 40% of the collagen is contained in the skin where it allows its elasticity. When the concentration of collagen decreases, the skin gradually loses elasticity and its tone, as the tissue loosens and causes "sagging" with the formation of wrinkles or an increase in their depth. The skin becomes much less hydrated, less luminous and more flaccid, opaque - therefore maintaining a certain level of collagen in our organism is extremely important both for health and in purely aesthetic terms.
Hydrolysed collagen of Yamamoto® Research contains the peptide collagen VERISOL®, a hydrolysate based on type 1 bio-active collagen, with very high bioavailability, able to stimulate the biosynthesis of new collagen and increase the percentage of elastin in the skin. The result of this is a significant increase in the production of collagen in the dermis in the extracellular matrix, recovering what was lost due to the ageing process and external factors.
Numerous scientific studies have confirmed the effectiveness of being able to improve the functional condition of the joints and bones and reduce skin ageing, markedly improving the depth of wrinkles, making a significant improvement in the brightness, firmness and elasticity of the skin. As a true skin reinvigorating nutraceutical, its intake stimulates the production of collagen by nourishing "from the inside" where no topical collagen treatment can take effect, intervening at the level of the "derma", the innermost layer of the skin, giving new strength to the nails and strengthening the hair. The addition of vitamin C will act to prevent the signs of ageing and support the action of external agents fighting free radicals.
