Lorna Vanderhaeghe's Active Collagen uses marine collagen and elastin, vegetable cellulose, and purified water to supplement the body's collagen and elastin levels which can lead to improvement in deep wrinkles, lifting of saggy areas, skin moisture, hair thickness, bone mineral density, joint disease, and fingernails. It can also help protect against free radical and sun damage.
Lorna Vanderhaeghe's Smart Solutions Active Collagen is ideal for those looking to prevent signs of aging as well as seeking to reverse some of the visible effects of aging. It is available here either in vegetable capsules, or in a Raspberry Flavour Drink Mix, which each provide a 30 day supply.
Collagen and elastin are essential in keeping our skin firm and moisturized, and as early as our twenties, our production levels of collagen and elastin decreases by about 1% each year, then jumps to about 3% by around menopause.
Information from Lorna Vanderhaeghe - author and women's natural health expert.
Have you noticed lately that your skin is showing more wear and tear? Maybe you see tiny lines crossing the delicate skin around your eyes and mouth, or your skin may be sagging. Are you tired of spending a lot of money on creams that make big claims but deliver little? Did you know you can reverse wrinkles in as little as 28 days? Yes, and there's research to prove it.
Preventing and reversing skin aging begins with building collagen in the skin. Youthful skin is abundant in collagen and elastin fibers that lock in moisture and keep the skin smooth and firm. As we age, collagen production declines, and to make matters worse, women in menopause can lose up to 30% of their skin collagen in the first few years following menopause, and it is that loss of collagen that causes sagging skin and wrinkles.
Thankfully, we can enhance collagen production and prevent collagen loss by taking Active Collagen, a research-backed hydrolyzed fish collagen and elastin polypeptide product. Many collagen products are made from cow or pig parts and have no research to back up claims.
In a European study, 43 women with deep crow's feet wrinkles were given either two grams of Active Collagen or a fake pill for 84 days during the harsh winter months. At day 28, over 70% of the women taking Active Collagen had up to a 20% reduction of deep wrinkles. By day 84, a dramatic increase in skin moisture and elasticity was achieved, and the crepey skin on the eyelids and upper arms also improved.
You would not have wanted to be in the group receiving the fake pills, as they all showed further skin wrinkling and dryness. Active Collagen builds collagen from the inside and makes your skin toned, supple, and well-hydrated while reducing lines, wrinkles, and roughness, and the benefits continue the longer you take Active Collagen.
