Japanese women have long been admired for their beautiful skin. Smooth and healthy, their complexions seem to be ageless, remaining even-toned and wrinkle-free even as they age into their 40's and 50's, and beyond.
Japanese women credit a variety of factors for their ability to age so gracefully, including a well-balanced diet, exercise, keeping stress to a minimum, and protecting and caring for the skin. This last factor is especially important, since the majority of the damage that our skin suffers is due to external forces, including over-exposure to the sun and environmental pollution.
Fighting Nature with ... Nature?

Natural medicine is a very important part of culture in Japan and throughout Asia. Natural extracts, oils and creams are applied to the skin, hair and nails to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize and protect. Many natural substances are also ingested as foods or supplements. In many cases, ingesting certain nutrients and substances is better than simply applying them topical, since the entire body can benefit.
Natural supplements and botanical extracts are a hallmark of skin care throughout Japan and the East.

Japanese culture has embraced supplementation as a step in improving and maintaining their overall health and preserving their youth and beauty. Vitamins and botanicals have always been popular, as have more unusual substances such as powdered pearls. One of the more popular ingestible supplements that has been gaining in popularity in Japan and throughout Asia is liquid collagen.
Keeping it Together with Collagen

Skin, tendons, and ligaments all contain high concentrations of a protein called collagen. Collagen is a very abundant protein in the human body; the skin alone is made of almost 70% collagen. If you are familiar at all with anti-aging treatments, you've probably heard of collagen and perhaps even used topical products containing it. But why is collagen so important to keeping the skin youthful?

Collagen  functions throughout the body as a kind of structural framework for cell production and renewal. When we are children, our collagen levels are at their highest, which is why we are so flexible and have such smooth, plump skin. As we age, though, collagen production slows down and, by the time we reach our late 20's, production has completely stopped. As collagen slowly begins to decline, and as external factors chip away at the remaining collagen in our bodies, the effects of the loss begin to show. Our joints become stiffer, our injuries heal more slowly, and our skin begins to lose elasticity and smooth, youthful appearance.

Collagen is now an ingredient in many anti-aging creams, and it has also been used as an injection by dermatologists for decades. One of the newest forms of collagen supplementation is liquid collagen, a drinkable form of this important protein that may actually help boost any remaining collagen production in the body.
Liquid collagen replenishes the body's stores, improving the skin's tone and texture, and protecting it from future damage.

Introducing ... Liquid Collagen!

Liquid collagen, also known as   ingestible collagen   or hydrolyzed collagen, has been slowly making its way from Asia into Europe and the United States. This drinkable form of collagen protein is sourced from either animals or fish, with fish being considered the highest quality because it is easier for the body to absorb more completely. Collagen drinks, such as   LAC Taut collagen drink , contain a number of antioxidants and vitamins that work with the collagen to maximize its positive effects on the body.

Liquid collagen supplements help to improve the levels of collagen in the body that deplete as we age. Consuming liquid collagen supplements has been shown to improve the condition of the skin all over the body, improving the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face and neck. Liquid collagen also benefits the hair and nails.
Liquid collagen supplementation can also benefit your body's ability to function physically, strengthening connective tissues throughout the body and reducing joint pain and stiffness.

Wisdom from the East

Aging is a part of life, one that cannot be avoided. It can, however, be made decidedly more pleasant and enjoyable. The Japanese, like many in Asia, have taken this approach to aging, finding ways to maintaining their beauty and vitality that are universally beneficial to the body as a whole. Working with nature and embracing natural supplementation, Japanese women have embraced supplements in every form, including ingestible and liquid forms, to get the most benefit out of each. Though the quest for the "Fountain of Youth" took place in the West, it is from the East that the true secret weapon in fighting aging and preserving youth has emerged:   liquid collagen .

Are you concern with thinning hair or hair loss? You are not alone. 

Besides wrinkles and sagging skin, hair loss and thinning hair are  the biggest concern for women and men. 

What you should know is, everyone sheds hair to some degree, but if you feel like your hair is shedding at an abnormal rate, you might be suffering from hair loss.

Contrary to popular belief, hair loss is not a disease that only affects the guys. Women actually make up 40% of hair loss sufferers, according to the American Hair Loss Association . Hair loss can be absolutely devastating for women. Losing your crowning glory may make you feel unattractive and hurt your self-esteem.

Collagen drinks are a boon for hair loss sufferers who are looking for ways to combat shedding and grow thicker, fuller hair. 

Collagen production in your body starts to decline as you age, and this makes your hair more vulnerable to breakage and loss. Taking a collagen supplement can help to replace lost collagen and increase your body’s hair-building proteins.


The Difference Between Hair Shedding and Hair Loss

 It’s normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs per day. If you’ve been noticing more hairs on your hairbrush or pillow than usual, you might be suffering from telogen effluvium, which is characterized by excessive hair shedding. There are various factors that can cause telogen effluvium , including the following:

  • High stress levels
  • Giving birth
  • Losing 20 or more pounds
  • Undergoing surgery
  • Recovering from an illness, particularly one accompanied by a high fever

In most cases, your hair starts to grow back a few months after the stressful event has passed. Within six to nine months, the hair regains its usual thickness. This type of hair shedding is different from hair loss, which occurs when your hair stops growing altogether. The most common causes of hair loss include the following:

Some medications and treatments

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Harsh hair care products
  • Hairstyles that pull on the hair
  • Poor nutrition

If you’re suffering from hair loss, your hair will not grow back until you address the underlying cause. 

The good news is, you can  help prevent and treat hair loss by making a collagen supplement a part of your daily regimen.


The Connection Between Collagen and Hair Loss

 In February of 2016, a team of researchers in Japan discovered that decreasing collagen levels near hair follicle stem cells is linked to hair loss. The lack of this particular type of collagen, type XVII collagen, leads to the damage of hair follicle DNA. Scientists observed this phenomenon in mice that were 18 months old, which is the age at which mice start to lose their hair. Older mice have fewer, thinner hair follicles than younger mice. The study showed that hair loss was less common in aging mice that continued to produce collagen.

In mice that lack type XVII collagen, the damaged stem cells turn into skin cells and are sloughed off like dandruff. This leads to hair follicle shrinkage and hair loss. Scientists believe that the same mechanism applies to humans.

In a separate study of the human scalp, the Japanese researchers found that the hair follicles of women in their 50s and older were smaller than the hair follicles of women in their 30s and 40s. Scientists are excited about these findings because it could help them find the cure for baldness.


Collagen: The Secret Ingredient Offering Hope for Hair Loss

Collagen is well known for helping to restore a youthful complexion , but its benefits are more than skin deep. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the body that is essential to healthy skin, hair, and nails. Collagen is the building block of the hair and surrounds each strand, so it is key to your hair’s quality and structurally reinforces it. 

Hair is primarily made up of keratin protein , which your body produces most effectively when the blood supplies amino acids. To increase the supply of amino acids in your blood, you can take collagen supplements, which are absorbed into your small intestine. Hair follicle cells use these amino acids to produce keratin protein.

Collagen also increases blood circulation in your body. An increase in blood flow to your scalp is a great way to promote scalp and hair health. It ensures that your hair follicles get the nutrients they need and helps your hair grow faster.

As you age, your hair may become dry and coarse. Collagen can be used to treat dry, brittle hair by increasing the hair’s moisture levels and repairing split ends. Collagen can also reduce the appearance of gray hairs.

Anyone who’s interested in maintaining a youthful complexion and reducing wrinkles has likely heard of collagen supplements. Collagen is a protein that serves as a key building block in connective animal tissue. It is the most abundant protein in the human body.

The dermis, or inner layer of the skin, is made up of mostly collagen, which gives the skin its resilience, strength, and texture. Aging leads to the breakdown of collagen, causing wrinkles, sagging skin, and rough texture. By the time we reach 30 years of age, we stop producing collagen and our body loses collagen at a rate of 1-2% each year.

There are two types of supplements that stimulate collagen growth for skin: collagen builders consisting of key essential amino acids and ingestible hydrolyzed collagen.
