Clinical abstract from Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, US National Library of Medicine: Effects of a nutritional supplement containing collagen peptides on skin elasticity, hydration and wrinkles
“… Many people around the world strive to achieve younger-looking skin. This is often promised by topical treatments. Oral treatments for skin ageing have been unsuccessful due to their constituents being broken down by acid and enzymes in the gut; however several studies have shown that hydrolyzed collagen is absorbed in the gut and then delivered to skin and joints through the blood stream. The aim of this study was to determine whether an oral nutritional supplement containing hydrolyzed collagen and other specific ingredients reported to have antiageing properties, would have a positive effect on skin wrinkling, elasticity and hydration…”
Conclusion: This study shows that the oral nutritional supplement consisting of collagen and other minerals, leads to a significant improvement in wrinkle depth. It is also able to induce noticeable improvement in elasticity and hydration of the skin.
