How can COLLAGEN•NATIVE•TYPE 2 reduce wrinkle formation?
COLLAGEN•NATIVE•TYPE 2 is produced from bovine cartilage through a gentle extraction process that maintains the integrity of the protein. Once ingested, the collagen is broken down by enzymes in the stomach and pancreas, and the resulting protein fragments, or peptides, are absorbed in the small intestine. Absorbed peptides enter the bloodstream and are transported to other parts of the body, including the skin, where they are thought to both stimulate and serve as building blocks for collagen production. Statistically significant improvements in skin elasticity, wrinkle depth, and skin hydration have been observed in individuals consuming daily collagen supplements compared to those receiving a placebo. Additional evidence suggests that ingesting collagen stimulates the production of collagen as well as other biomolecules that are beneficial for the skin, such as hyaluronic acid, while decreasing the expression of enzymes that break down collagen. Collagen supplementation is therefore an easy way to combat our body’s decline in collagen production and help reduce visible signs of aging.
