Collagen is a buzzword that’s often heard yet seldom understood. Leafing through beauty magazines, we see ads for ‘anti-wrinkle’ creams and ‘serums’ implying that all we need to do to increase the youth-preserving collagen in our skin is rub it on topically. Not so. Improvements to health and beauty come from the inside out – not the outside in as with topical collagen treatments that deliver little improvement.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It makes up about 25 to 35% of the body’s protein content and is often considered the ‘glue’ that holds the whole body together. In Collagen Myths and Misconceptions, I explain how collagen not only effects our hair, skin and nails, but also how collagen production is the best strategy for reducing the risk of heart disease, how chronic stress depletes collagen production, and the connection between estrogen and collagen during Menopause.
Regenerate Collagen: Collagen is your beauty protein – it prevents wrinkles from forming, gives skin elasticity, provides strong nails and helps create thick and strong hair. When we’re young, we have an abundance of collagen, but starting at age 21 collagen diminishes by 1% per year. By age 30, signs of reduced collagen on skin, hair, and nails become visible.
Now, genuine collagen regeneration is possible with clinically proven BioSil™. BioSil is the only product clinically proven to promote collagen regeneration, with patented ch-OSA®, for fewer lines and wrinkles, thicker hair, stronger nails, and denser bones.
BioSil is now available at your local Health Food Store. Visit: PNO.CA
