You probably know as your body ages it decreases it’s collagen production. And since collagen makes up 30% of the body’s protein it’s pretty important. What does collagen do? It provides a cushion between your bone structure and your epidermis to keep your skin from sinking into the bones and give it some shape. One of the other important proteins is elastin which works with collagen to let your skin regain it’s shape when rubbed or pinched.
There are ways to increasing collagen in your body. It just takes a little research.
I was amazed to find out about all the different collagen “remedies” out there. From creams to pills to injections. Wow, there’s a lot of things advertising collagen. Unfortunately, most of them don’t work. Well, the injections work temporarily but I consider that a whole other level of beauty care than I’m prepared for. Doctor’s visits? Pain? So, if you’re like me those creams, powders and pills sound much better. But you know what? Forget them. They don’t work. Best Collagen Protein Powder GNC
Unfortunately, the particles of collagen are too large to penetrate your skin. So in the case of the collagen creams, the collagen basically sits on your skin only to be washed off later. Pointless.
The pills and powders aren’t any better, the collagen in them can’t be assimilated into your existing protein structures so they’re ahem, expelled.
There are ingredients out there though that will help your body to create more collagen from the inside where it can be used. Ingredients like Cynergy TK. This cutting edge ingredient contain Functional Keratin, an important protein that can be put to use in your body and zinc and copper which helps your skin generate more cells renewal. Studies have proven Cynergy TK helps your skin retain moisture and greater elasticity after only 18 days of use. Studies have also proven Cynergy TK stimulates collagen and elastin production too.
Another ingredient I use daily is Phytessence wakame. This Japanese sea kelp has been called the “Fountain of Youth” by the media because of its powerful ability to slow down the loss of hyaluronic acid which strengthens your existing collagen and elastin fibers. Plus, it’s a potent antioxidant which protects against cancers and premature aging.
