How drinking the right kind of collagen can help with wrinkles

How drinking the right kind of collagen can help with wrinkles
Being youthful is not about how you look, but having beautiful skin sure does help! Years of wear and tear take their toll on your skin, especially the delicate facial skin. Environmental damage from pollution and over-exposure to the sun penetrate deep into the skin, destroying collagen and weakening the skin's cellular structure. Wrinkles and sagging are the result, and these steadily increase as you age.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is one of the most important and abundant proteins in the human body, forming a kind of framework for the building of tissues throughout the body. The skin contains the highest concentrations of collagen, with the dermis layer of the skin comprised of nearly 70% collagen.
Types of Collagen´╗┐
Collagen is not only abundant in the body, it is diverse, with 28 different types working together throughout the body. In the dermis, the collagen is either Type I or Type III.

Type I collagen is the most common type of collagen in the body. It is also the strongest form of collagen, providing not only support for the skin but also for the joints. Type III collagen is often found alongside Type I and is the second most abundant form of collagen in the body. Type III is also present in the dermis layer, as well as in internal organs and blood vessels. Type III collagen is sometimes referred to as "baby collagen" because it is responsible for the plump skin so admired in young children. As we age, though, Type III begins to lose its elasticity, eventually converting into Type I, which is stiffer.
Collagen and Aging
When we are born, our bodies are filled with collagen. The characteristic smooth, rosy, plump skin of a baby is testament to the wealth of collagen in the dermis. Beginning in puberty, though, we gradually begin to lose the collagen in our bodies, with production of new collagen completely stopping by our late 20's.
Collagen levels begin to steadily decrease as early as our 20's, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin and dullness.

In our 30's, the levels of collagen present in our bodies begins a slow and steady decline, dropping up to 2% every year. Around this time is when those fine lines and wrinkles may begin to appear on the face. By age 40 the decrease has hit 10%-20%, and by 50 nearly half of all our collagen is gone.
Ingestible Collagen Supplementation
Collagen has been injected into aging skin for years, temporarily rejuvenating the skin around the injection site. However, injectable collagen does not prevent wrinkles. Recently, though, an ingestible liquid form of collagen has been making its way into Europe and the United States.

Liquid collagen supplements are taken in the same manner as other vitamin supplements. They boost your body's natural collagen production abilities and replenish the collagen that the body is losing as it ages. Taking liquid collagen supplements may erase fine lines and wrinkles; reduce the appearances of cellulite and stretch marks; and improve the health and appearance of your hair and nails. Collagen supplementation also can provide relief for stiff and painful joints by supporting and strengthening the connective tissues around the joints, as well as the joints themselves.

Ingestible collagen supplements are made out of either fish or animal extracts. Fish-based collagens are considered the best quality because their lower molecular weight appears to make them easier for the body to absorb. Absorption is the key to successful collagen supplementation, and a high quality liquid collagen supplement can improve the skin in as little as a few weeks.

Collagen taken on its own has some positive effects, but consuming liquid collagen in combination with vitamins and antioxidants maximizes its anti-aging benefits. LAC Taut collagen drink contains a potent mixture of hydrolyzed marine collagen, as well as vitamin C, coenzyme CoQ10, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid, ceramide and DNA that have been proven to restore the skin, preventing future wrinkles and restoring not only the look of youth, but the feeling as well.

A decline in the look and feel of our skin, and the rest of our bodies, comes with the process of aging. With external factors and free radicals wreaking havoc as well, our skin can become a poor reflection of how we actually feel inside. The pursuit of a means to preserve and restore our skin has led many to go under the needle or knife, but there is a better way. Liquid collagen supplements offer you the chance to replenish and restore the body's collagen levels in a more natural way.

Bye-bye Botox. The new beauty secret on everyone’s lips right now is collagen. There’s always been pressure to be ageless in Hollywood, but today’s celebrities are nixing the usual topical remedies and invasive treatments in favor of collagen of the consumable variety. Collagen drinks have been popular in Japan for years, but they have started generating more buzz among women in the rest of the world, including the rich and famous.

What does it take to achieve glamorous looks and a youthful complexion worthy of the red carpet? Celebrities often have access to a team of hair and makeup pros who can glam them up at a moment’s notice, but they also cling to their fair share of anti-aging beauty secrets – collagen drinks being one of them.

The likes of Drew Barrymore, Lady Gaga, and the Kardashian sisters swear by these nutrient-rich beauty drinks. Below are some of the reasons why more and more celebrities are incorporating collagen drinks into their routine.

1.   Repair, strengthen, and rejuvenate skin with collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is a major structural protein, making up about 75% of our skin. Skin with healthy collagen levels looks smooth, plump, and youthful. After the age of 25, however, collagen production slows and you start to lose approximately 1.5% of your collagen each year. The breakdown of collagen causes the skin to get thinner and leads to the formation of wrinkles.

Collagen gives the skin its strength and smooth appearance, so it’s crucial to protect and promote collagen growth. The active collagen fragments in collagen drinks are absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body and to the skin. Skin cells called fibroblasts produce collagen. 

Collagen drinks containing hydrolyzed collagen promote collagen synthesis by stimulating these fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Clinical studies shows ingesting 10,000mg a day for a period of 8 weeks help to increase skin thickness and collagen density, reduce wrinkles. See Clinical studies.


2.   Hydrolyzed collagen can be absorbed into the bloodstream, and stay in the dermis of our skin

In their natural state, collagen molecules are too big to penetrate the skin’s surface, so the effectiveness of many topical collagen products is limited. Collagen molecules are also too large for your body to absorb when ingested. The process of hydrolysis breaks collagen down into fragments that are small enough for your digestive enzymes to break down completely. Hydrolyzed collagen consists of small peptides with low molecular weight that are easily digested, absorbed, and distributed throughout the body.

 While traditional collagen serums only penetrate the top layer of the skin, hydrolyzed collagen is more easily absorbed by the body and can thus boost collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. A 1999 study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Arthritis & Rheumatology showed that orally administered hydrolyzed collagen was digested and more than 90% of it was absorbed within 6 hours, with measurable accumulation in the skin and cartilage.


3.   Collagen drinks are better than powder or pills

Collagen supplements come in all forms, including tablets, capsules, chewables, softgels, powders, and even marshmallows. The problem with collagen pills and powders is that they could pass through your digestive system without being broken down. Pills are also hard for some people to swallow. Moreover, they typically contain fillers, binders, stabilizers, and chelating agents, making them less potent than liquid supplements.

The secret to success with collagen supplementation is taking collagen in liquid form. Collagen drinks are absorbed into your bloodstream faster than other supplements because the collagen is already dissolved in the liquid. Collagen drinks are also a lot more convenient than pills and powders. They come ready-made in small bottles that you can easily carry in your purse, so you can drink them on the go. No messes or mixing necessary.  Additionally, collagen drinks are a lot more potent than other collagen supplements, so you can get a higher dose of collagen.


4.   The higher the potency, the better

While there is no recommended daily allowance for collagen, high-end supplements typically contain more than 5,000mg of collagen. For maximum results, drinking a collagen supplement with at least 7,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen is recommended. Anything less than that simply isn’t potent enough. LAC Taut® Premium Collagen drink contains 13,000mg of hydrolyzed collagen per 1.7oz bottle,  which is two to six times the concentration of other collagen drink brands.


5.   There’s more to collagen drink benefits than meets the eye

In the first few weeks of taking a liquid collagen supplement, you might not notice any physical differences in your skin, but skin readings would suggest otherwise. Skin graphs showing the facial images of a 60 year old woman who drank one bottle of LAC Taut® Premium Collagen every night for the first 8 nights and then every other night after that showed a noticeable increase in skin thickness and hydration levels after just four weeks.

Drinking high-potency marine hydrolyzed collagen is also shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Several controlled clinical studies have been performed that prove the efficacy and benefits of collagen peptides in the reduction of wrinkles. A study conducted by Rousselot SAS France showed a 30% decrease in the formation of deep wrinkles after supplementation with 10g of hydrolyzed collagen. In another study published in the journal Clinical Interventions in Aging, daily supplementation with 1g of hydrolyzed collagen for 12 weeks led to a significant reduction in skin dryness and wrinkles. The authors of the study suggested that dietary supplementation with hydrolyzed collagen can physiologically counteract natural and photo-aging processes. Hydrolyzed collagen is an important weapon in the fight against wrinkles and aging skin.


So the question is "Can we drink our wrinkles away?"

Yes we can!

Collagen supplements and skincare products derive collagen from four main sources: bovine (cows), porcine (pigs), chicken collagen and fish (marine) collagen. Bovine, porcine and chicken collagen are cheaper and more common than fish (marine) collagen.

Collagen from cows, pigs and chickens are extracted from their skin, tendons and cartilage. They are mainly Type II collagen (for joints and tendons) and very little Type I.

Fish collagen, also known as ‘ marine collagen ’, is extracted from either the meat or scales of cold sea fish and is primarily Type I and Type III collagen. 

Fish collagen has been shown to have superior “ bioavailability ”: the rate at which it is absorbed into the blood stream through our intestinal wall.  This means that fish (marine) collagen enters the bloodstream more quickly than other types of collagen, so it is the best source of collagen for your skin. 

In fact, fish (marine) collagen is up to 1.5 times more absorbent than bovine, porcine or chicken collagen, because of its optimum (low) molecular weight. Fish (marine) collagen is also the right type of collagen (Type I&III) needed for the building blocks of our skin. 

Because Marine Collagen is extracted from fish, it is free from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) (“ Mad Cow Disease ”), Hoof-and-Mouth disease and Bird Viruses.
