Are you using moisturisers, serums and skin boosters and not getting any results, or at least the results you would hope?
Does your skin still look tired and lack lustre?
Have you heard of the saying ‘beauty starts from with in’?
Currently ALL of my clients are raving about my favourite clinically trialled Collagen product, Designs for Health Collagen.
This results in skin improvement, enhanced skin elasticity and reduced wrinkles in as little as 4 weeks.
Hold up, what is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body, particularly in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. Essentially, it is the substance that holds the body together! It forms a ‘scaffold’ to provide strength and structure within.
With age, collagen weakens, leading to wrinkles and cartilage problems. Hence why a supplement of collagen, either ingested internally or topically applied can strengthen the skin as we get older.
Designs for Health Collagen, contains the patented blends of Fortigel, Verisol, and Fortibone collagen peptides. Verisol, in particular, has been shown to upregulate the synthesis of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans in the dermal layer of facial skin (all fancy names for the proteins which make up our skin!).
What does the research say?
A study with 69 women aged between 35 and 55 years revealed that Versisol leads to significantly higher skin elasticity –up to 15 % – compared to placebo treatment.
A second study with more than 100 women aged between 45 and 65 years shows that the oral administration of Verisol (2.5 g/day) significantly reduces wrinkles after 4 weeks and leads to a significantly higher skin collagen concentration.
Verisol also showed improvements in skin surface structure, reducing cellulite due to the fact that it increased dermal thickness and elasticity.
A double blind, randomised, placebo controlled study with 105 women aged between 25 and 50 years shows that the daily oral intake of 2.5g Verisol significantly decreases the cellulite score. The effect was measured after 3 and 6 months supplementation.
These benefits may also be used in counteracting age-related skin thinning, manifested as ‘crepe’ like appearance.
PLUS it was shown to improve nail growth with reportedly less chipping of fingernails! wow.
Not all collagens are the same though!
Designs for Health Collagen is sourced both ethically and sustainably from a bovine source in either New Zealand, South America, Australia or Germany.
In one serve, you receive the clinically trialled dose of Collagen for skin, plus the other clinically trialled collagen’s Fortigel (for joints) and Fortibone (beneficial for bone).
