Collagen Shots, developed by UK company Rejeauvenated, contain 10, 000 mgs of marine extract collagen per serving. In addition super fruit Acai berry has been added along with B and C vitamins to create a synergistic blend for maximum benefits to the skin. Collagen type I is the major protein found in connective tissues and skin, it plays an essential role in maintaining skin tone, suppleness and elasticity.
After the age of 25 collagen synthesis reduces at a rate of 1.5% a year and the age of 45 collagen levels can have fallen by as much as 30%
Many trials have shown that taking collagen supplements will replace that lost from the skin to make it younger, firmer and more hydrated. A 2008 study inTokyoof 33 women ages 40-60 who took 10 g of Hydrolyzed Collagen daily for two months showed 91% aw an increase in skin hydration and resilience.
In addition a Dermiscan study in LyonFrancein 2008 showed similar findings in an age group of 35-55: an increase in skin smoothness and hydration, using the Corneometer and Skin Image Analyzer technologies. After 12 weeks of 10g Hydrolyzed Collagen daily, 41% less furrowing, less wrinkles, more resilient, more hydrated.
Skin resilience was measured by the C&Z Cutometer, Hydrolyzed Collagen also increases the diameter of collagen fibrils in the dermis by the same mechanism: fibroblast stimulation. This in turn increases cohesion of the dermal collagen fibres themselves, which is a true anti-ageing step. In the skin, this action means increased thickness, suppleness and resilience, as well as hydration. Hydration, or water content of skin tissue, is proven directly related to overall smoothness and decreased furrowing and wrinkling.
