We all know that collagen is an integral component for younger and healthier looking skin. Collagen provides structure and elasticity to keep skin looking plump and youthful. But with age, collagen breaks down and over time the body’s capacity to re-generate collagen reduces (just one of the many joys of growing old). In fact, here’s more bad news, according to studies, during the first five years of menopause, women can lose as much as 30% of their collagen!
But its not all doom and gloom. By taking the right collagen supplement, women can now replenish lost collagen from within and without. But with the market inundated with collagen products, from pills to powders, gummies to drinks, its hard to know which one to pick.
The rule of thumb when choosing the right collagen supplement would be to look for one that has invested their money on clinical trials to test its efficacy, over fancy packaging and marketing campaigns.
Collagen Lift™ Paris has run trials in South Africa and Europe (Germany and France) that have shown that within three weeks, the test subject’s skin was brighter and their faces smoother. After eight weeks an all-round, marked improvement in the skin on the face and neck was achieved, with reduced lines, plumped out eye area and lessened crow’s feet.
Collagen Lift™ Paris is a daily collagen drink that is easily absorbed by the body and has been clinically proven to increase collagen density, reduce wrinkles by up to 50% and increase skin elasticity and hydration. It is further enhanced with Mediterranean Seaweed extract and Vitamin C, making it a potent source of anti-ageing collagen, minerals and antioxidants.
A recently published clinical trial has shown that Verisol® collagen peptides are also able to promote an increase in nail growth and a decrease in the frequency in cracked/chipped nails. The clinical trial, done over six months and with a daily dose of 2.5g of collagen showed a 15% increase in nail growth and a 40% reduction in cracked/chipped nails.
Don’t be tempted like we were, to drink more than one vial to see more results, because each dose is perfectly measured to give you just the amount of collagen your body requires on a daily basis and anything extra will not be absorbed (think wasted). The handy little vials are easy to snap open and should be taken in the morning diluted in water or juice. Each box contains exactly one month’s supply and is handy when travelling.
