Our skin needs COLLAGEN to be supple and resilient. “Kolla” is Greek for “Glue”! And that’s just the way it is – collagen is the protein that holds, or “glues”, our body’s connective tissue together.
Collagen is found in skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, organs, muscles, blood vessels, mucous membranes, nails and even hair. The dermis, the middle layer of skin that supports the surface of our skin, is made up of about 80% collagen.
As long as we have enough collagen, our skin is dense, smooth and elastic. After the age of 30, when the body’s natural ageing process starts to slow things down, skin cells inevitably slow down collagen synthesis, skin gradually loosens, loses elasticity and the first wrinkles start to appear. This process is accelerated by intense physical activity, especially if the metabolism uses more protein than we eat.
Collagen fibres are also severely damaged by excessive sun exposure, environmental pollution, smoking, stress and free radicals. All of this leads to a disruption in collagen synthesis, making the skin thinner and wrinkles more visible. A collagen deficiency in the body can be indicated not only by deep wrinkles, but also by stiffness and pain in the joints.
The good news – collagen reserves CAN be replenished!
SKIN MAXfiller – a dietary supplement with maximum levels of COLLAGEN and HYALURONIC ACID for skin, hair and nails! It also contains vitamin C, magnesium, green tea extract, zinc, brown seaweed extract and iodine. NO sweeteners, which means no extra calories. Hyaluronic acid is also essential for skin health and beauty, as hyaluronic acid promotes the production of collagen in the skin and is important for skin hydration! Hyaluronic acid acts like a magnet, helping skin cells retain as much water as possible, thus keeping skin supple, firm and looking good.
This is especially important in summer, when the sun and higher temperatures cause our skin to lose even more moisture.
