Collagen and the skin
Being a key structural protein that makes up about 80% of its dry weight, collagen plays a vital role in the health and maintenance of the skin. When the body is young, the naturally occurring levels of this essential protein are high and this is what makes young skin so soft, smooth and tight. As we age however, and also due to factors such as nutrition and sunlight, these natural levels can dramatically drop. This results in the appearance of ageing with all those telltale signs including wrinkles, crows feet and sagging skin. This means that supplementing the body with an external source of collagen can be a greatly beneficial way to help tackle those unwanted wrinkles and bring ageing skin back to life.
When it came to the Pure Collagen capsules, Proto-col wanted to make sure they were using the best. In order to achieve this, each and every capsule is formulated with scientifically studied Verisol®, a unique blend of pure hydrolysed type I and III collagen. This amazing ingredient works for the skin from the inside out to help with the appearance of ageing and has been shown to be successful in a number of clinical studies.
One study of 69 women aged 35-55 showed that taking Verisol® lead to a statistically significant higher skin elasticity - this was up to 15% more when compared to the placebo. This was shown after just 4 weeks of taking and was kept persistent after 8 weeks. Another study of 114 women aged 45-65 showed a statistically significant reduction in eye wrinkle volume when compared to the placebo. After only 4 weeks they reported a 7.2% reduction on wrinkle volume and then up to a massive 20.1% after 8 weeks.
