COLLAGEN: THE LATEST BUZZWORD

Collagen beauty products and supplements are all the rage! Everywhere you look there’s a new collagen product – with big promises on how it can improve your skin.

So, what is collagen?

Collagen is a key component of the basic structures of the human body and connective tissues. It accounts for about 30% of the body’s protein, and 75% of the protein that makes up skin. In addition to playing a big part of skin and hair condition, collagen also has a major role in the flexibility and mobility of the joints and cartilages, the smooth functioning of internal organs and the maintenance of blood vessels and bone density.

Why should I be taking collagen?

From the age of 25 (eeek!!) our body’s production of collagen starts to decline, by around 1.5% per year. As a result, over time, joints and cartilages become stiff and more rigid, hair volume decreases, skin elasticity lessens, and muscles weaken. The number and activity of skin cells (fibroblasts) that produce collagen decrease, which means that the collagen matrix that provides skin firmness and structure, begins to break down. This equates to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and deep furrows, as the skin becomes dehydrated and thinner.

Taking a collagen supplement helps the body to produce more collagen, from the amino acids in the supplement when digested.

There are a lot of collagen products out there – which one should I use?

At Professional Skin Care Lab, we stock Collagen ProActive – a fabulous liquid product with visible results.

What makes Collagen ProActive better than the rest?

The Collagen ProActive Liquid is a hydrolyzed supplement, with added vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6 and magnesium. It has a very high absorption rate (more than 90%) and is fat-free.

Hydrolyzed collagen, taken orally, is absorbed within 12 hours, and contains three times higher amounts of proline, glycine and hydroxyproline amino acids (essential for the synthesis of new collagen) than other collagen supplements. It is said that hydrolyzed collagen is 50 times more effective and efficient than a regular collagen pill!

What are the benefits of Collagen ProActive?

  • Improved skin elasticity and hydration, with a reduction in fine lines
  • Stimulated hair and nail growth
  • Joint pain relief
  • Keeps your bones strong
  • Good for muscles
  • Promotes heart health
  • Maintains a healthy gut balance
  • Weight loss support

How do I take it?

One 20ml dose per day with water or juice – couldn’t be simper! It comes in 2 delicious flavours: strawberry and lemon.

VERY IMPORTANT – When will I start seeing and feeling results?

Most people respond positively to ProActive before they have finished the first bottle! Obviously, results are affected by lifestyle, diet, exercise regime and sun exposure, so not everyone has the same outcome.

Testimonials from happy customers reveal that Collagen ProActive is well received as a wellness package:

Aging comes to us all, but my skin is now firmer and smoother – I feel younger! It’s such a great feeling!

Dawn

I had given up on losing my hair! I have tried everything. After a few months now on Collagen Pro-Active, my hair is growing so well, and looks healthy and strong!

James

It’s been the whole wellness package for me – I am a runner and I feel stronger, my joints don’t ache, and my injuries are so much less – I am hooked!

Joshua

I have been using CP for the last year and love the product immensely! I felt a difference in my energy levels and skin within the first 3 weeks of using it. The condition of my skin and hair has improved drastically over the last year, where people started to notice the difference.
I have gained lean muscle mass over the last few months as this product helps with muscle recovery, which increases the intensity level of my training sessions. CP became part of my beauty and health regime and I personally feel it’s more important to spend money on a product that works from the inside out than expensive external products.
