Collagen is the most common protein in the body. It is an essential structural element of the human body found mostly in the extracellular matrix of most connective tissues. Collagen comprises 80% of our dry skin weight – it is the major structural component of our skin and is what gives our skin elasticity and strength.
Natural collagen production in the body, declines as we age. Factors like UV radiation, hormonal changes, nutrient deficiencies and dehydration contribute to decreased collagen production – this results in wrinkles, loose skin, muscle atrophy and joint pain.
How can I stimulate collagen production?
At a cellular level, collagen building is a fascinating and highly complex process! Simplified greatly, when we consume protein via food, our digestive system breaks these protein molecules down into small peptides that act as building blocks for more collagen production in the body.
Each area of the body – the skin, muscles, bones and joints – has different receptors that can be activated to stimulate collagen production. Receptors in the skin’s fibroblast cells are only activated by specific sequencing of peptides.
CanPrev Collagen Beauty peptides are the precise sequencing of amino acid chains needed in the skin’s fibroblast cells to unlock collagen production. This is highly unique and important for skin repair because fibroblast cells are the most common cells responsible for stimulating collagen building in the skin.
Also, many sources of collagen tend to consist of longer amino acid chains that need to be chopped up before our body can utilize the peptides. Collagen Beauty consists of smaller than the average peptides. They weigh about 0.5 kilodaltons which equals about 3 amino acids in length. Just the right size for superior absorption!
Collagen Beauty featuring Verisol Bioactive collagen peptides have been internationally studied and recognized. Three published research trials support the ability of these peptides to reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve nail growth, and decrease cracked or chipped nails, all while increasing the smoothness and firmness of the skin in 28 days!
Better Together – Collagen and Silicon
Why? Both decline as we age, and silicon deficiency affects healthy collagen production. Together, CanPrev Collagen and Silicon Beauty formulas supply the raw building blocks needed for smoother and firmer looking skin.
CanPrev’s Silicon Beauty is 100% soluble silicon that is quarried and derived from the quartz of Nova Scotia. It features MMST silicon, proven to be one of the best sources of silicon in the world. MMST is better absorbed than most other supplement sources. It is over 3.5 times more absorbable than ch-OSA, 21 times more than horsetail and bamboo forms, and 64 times more than colloidal ionic silica. Combined with a therapeutic 2.5mg of biotin, this is the only blend of silicon you need to help your body build up depleting stores of collagen.
