Collagen 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. Collagen makes up about 75% of the skin and is responsible for keeping our skin firm and bouncy – the secret to youthful looking skin.
Unfortunately, as we get older, we start to lose collagen. The body’s ability to produce collagen slows down and even starts making lower-quality collagen. Collagen loss can start as early as age 18 and by the time we turn 40, we are losing as much as 1% of our collagen each year. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking and diet also play a big role in the destruction of collagen. (Not so fun fact - did you know that sugar interferes with collagen’s ability to repair itself?!?)
With all of these things working against our collagen, it’s never been more important to make sure we are supplementing our collagen every day. Glotriton’s Super Beauty Elixir is a great source of collagen. Its patented Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP) are "hydrolyzed" or broken down to a point that the collagen is bioavailable to our body and ready to get right to work on our skin. Glotrition’s BCPs have been clinically proven to work increasingly better over time. In one clinical study• results were measured after 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 12 weeks. In 4 weeks, subject saw a 25% reduction in wrinkles and a significant increase in skin moisture. After 8 weeks, subject's pro-collagen (the measurable precursor to collagen growth) levels increased by 65%!
Now, here's the catch: When subjects stopped taking the Bioactive Collagen Peptides daily, and measurements were taken at 12 weeks, the decline in improvement was noticeable...telling us that daily supplementation with Bioactive Collagen Peptides is necessary for consistent improvement.
The Super Beauty Elixir also contains a special blend of antioxidants that work synergistically with the Bioactive Collagen Peptides to help protect your existing collagen from breaking down further due to oxidative stress while helping protect your new collagen as it’s forming. So while the Super Beauty Elixir helps build new collagen daily, we take it a step further by supporting the existing and newly forming collagen from further breakdown.
By supplementing with collagen consistently (i.e. DAILY), we can build existing collagen back up and even stop the daily decline. With continued use, skin appears smoother, plumper and even has more elasticity all thanks to that daily dose of collagen. Get your Super Beauty Elixir here.
