Proper Nutrition can help reverse signs of aging. The most obvious sign of aging for most people shows up as sagging, drooping skin. Collagen is a group of naturally occurring proteins that is found in the flesh and connective tissue, and is the main component of connective tissue. It is mostly located in the tendons, ligaments and skin, in the cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut and the intervertebral disk.
When there are insufficient collagen levels in the body, the most obvious results can be physical pain or discomfort in the joints and structural weakness, and a lack of resilient skin. There are several other key proteins and substances which are present in our body when we are young and vibrant, but decrease as we age. As these substances decrease, our ability to feel young in our body also seems to decrease.
Three Important Ingredients to reverse signs of aging:
Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II
Hydrolyzed Collagen, Type II, provides the structural framework of your connective tissues to keep your skin firm and resilient and to help your joints maintain an optimum range of motion. Collagen is the structural glue that holds cells together, providing the tensile strength to connective tissue, skin and joints.
Chondroitin Sulfate is a naturally occurring element of joint cartilage that gives cartilage its shock absorbing properties. It also acts as a fill-in as the base substance of the skin dermis. Unlike Glucosamine, the effects of Chondroitin Sulfate do not taper off.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
Hyaluronic Acid helps provide hydration for your skin and joint lubrication for your joints. It is the gel-like substance that holds your cells together, and holds moisture, which also plumps up wrinkles. Low levels of Hyaluronic Acid are associated with skin wrinkling and sagging.
Just taking these important nutrients is not always enough. For example, many people take chondroitin, but the form they are taking is not effectively metabolized by their body. In contrast, “depolymerized chondroitin” can be effectively utilized by the body and more rapidly. Another example is with collagen: hydrolyzed collagen is the only form of collagen proven to stimulate chondrocytes, which stimulates cartilage regeneration. This is one reason we recommend a liquid supplement that is easily metabolized for effective and faster results.
