COLLAGEN FOR BEAUTIFUL SKIN
In a study of 43 women between the ages of 40 and 55 with deep crow’s feet wrinkles, consumption of Active Collagen containing hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides was found to decrease lines and wrinkles as well as increase skin moisture. Two grams per day of either Active Collagen or fake pills were consumed for 84 days. Subjects’ forearm and face skin conditions were measured at day 0, day 28 and day 84. Day 28 through 84 were during winter months to capture harsh winter conditions. After 28 days, the group taking the Active Collagen showed a significant 20 percent decrease in the depth and the number of deep wrinkles in 71 percent of the subjects. The placebo group experienced an increase in the number of deep wrinkles. Finally, Active Collagen was found to have a powerful moisturising effect on the skin and the longer you take it the more collagen rebuilding occurs. Active Collagen also reduces the crepey skin we get on our eyelids and upper arms. You only have to take 2000 mg of Active Collagen.
In our early 20s collagen production declines by about one percent a year. But women lose as much as 30 percent of their collagen in the five years following menopause and this drop in collagen is what causes wrinkling and sagging. When we are young, the skin naturally renews its collagen and elastin. But with age and damaging sunburns this renewal rate slows down.
GLA FOR PSORIASIS, ECZEMA, DERMATITIS, ROSACEA
Getting enough GLA can be challenging because the only human food to contain GLA is breast milk. After we are weaned, we must make GLA from the food we eat. People with skin disorders and women who have gone through menopause can not make GLA from the food they eat very effectively. And this inability to make GLA is the reason post menopausal women have dry, wrinkled skin lacking that youthful glow. GLA is not found in fish or flax seed oil and the highest source of GLA is found in borage oil. Look for GLA SKIN OIL a liquid borage oil supplement. If you want to change the look of your skin quickly take the GLA Skin Challenge and eat 2 tablespoons of GLA per day and apply a small amount to the wrinkles on your face at bedtime. Your friends will be asking if you've had “work done”!
