Collagen

Collagen is a body protein that forms a fibrous network and provides structural support to the body tissues. It gives the skin its strength, flexibility and resilience.

Collagen is a large molecule that does not allow it to be readily absorbed through the body. For maximum absorbability and efficacy, the collagen used in Collagen Anti-Age Beauty Drink is  hydrolyzed marine collagen. The collagen has been cut up into smaller fragments through an enzymatic process, resulting in the formation of peptides with limited molecular weight that are extremely well absorbed.

The collagen peptides in the Collagen Anti-Age Beauty Drink are of marine origin. Their efficacy, absorption and bioavailability have been proven in clinical studies. Marine collagen offers many advantages over collagen of bovine or porcine origin:

  • It is suitable for pescatarians (people who do not eat meat but do eat fish)
  • It contains a higher concentration of type 1 collagen (the collagen type that is important for beautiful skin)
  • It is Kosher- and Halal-certified
  • It poses no risk of problems with animal diseases such as mad cow disease, foot-and-mouth disease, etc.
 

Study results

Consistent use of Collagen Anti-Age Beauty Drink will result in visibly younger and firmer skin from within. The efficacy of Collagen Anti-Age Beauty Drink has been confirmed by studies.
