Long Term Bennies of Bioactive Collagen
We talk about collagen...a lot! But that’s only because it is so important in the war on aging. For centuries, Chinese women have viewed collagen as a “Fountain of Youth,” consuming foods high in collagen, like shark fin and pig’s feet, in hopes of smoothing skin and preserving aging joints. Luckily for us, there are easier and far more delicious ways to add collagen to our wellness routine!
First, a little background on collagen. It is the most abundant protein in our body and one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Often referred to as the body’s scaffolding, collagen binds tissues and is the glue that holds the body together. (It actually comes from the Greek word "kolla" which means glue!) Collagen makes up about 75% of the skin and is responsible for keeping our skin firm and bouncy – the keys to youthful looking skin.
As we age, we start to lose collagen. The body’s ability to product collagen slows down and even produces lower-quality collagen. We start losing about a percent of collagen per year in our mid-20s and lose as much as 30% during the first 5 years of menopause. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking and diet also play a big role in the destruction of collagen. (Sugar and refined carbs are really bad for collagen - did you know that sugar interferes with collagen’s ability to repair itself?!?)
So, we’re losing collagen on the reg, what can we do? Collagen is found in some of the foods we eat but it may be beneficial to add a collagen supplement to your daily beauty wellness routine. But, beware, not all collagen is created equal. Look for a Bioactive Collagen Peptide, like the one found in Glotrition’s Super Beauty Elixir. This assures that the collagen you're taking is "hydrolyzed" or broken down to a point that it is bioavailable to your body...ready to get right to work on your skin. Increasing levels of collagen can help brighten and tighten the skin to give you a beautiful glow.
If you are looking for the long-term benefits of collagen, you’re going to want to make a supplement a permanent addition to your wellness routine. Our bodies are constantly producing collagenase, an enzyme that breaks the peptide bonds in collagen, essentially eating away at our natural collagen. So, if collagen supplements improve your skin, bones and joints, you are going to want to keep taking them, right?
And, when you add Glotrition’s Super Beauty Elixir to your beauty wellness routine, the effects on your skin are cumulative. You will notice more results the longer you use it! That’s because with the Elixir, you are not only adding Bioactive Collagen Peptides that help stimulate new collagen growth, you are protecting your new and existing collagen with the Elixir’s antioxidants. By supporting the ongoing regeneration process of the skin, each new layer appears healthier. With continued use, skin appears smoother, plumper and even has more elasticity – all keys to healthier, youthful looking skin.
So now you know why Collagen is SO important and why it is the number one vital ingredient in Glotrition’s Super Beauty Duo. In the Elixir, it is stimulating new collagen growth from the inside, but it also has positive effects on the skin when used topically. The Super Beauty Serum contains a Pro Collagen Complex that helps protect and optimize collagen on the outside. These two products form the perfect team – working together to grow and protect your collagen.
