Collagen is one of the most plentiful and naturally occurring proteins present in the body, and over time our ability to make it sadly declines with age. This diminishing supply of collagen and HA causes the structure of the skin to weaken and lose volume, giving way to those visible signs of premature aging. However, if you are taking the right supplements you can absolutely boost your collagen and maintain that plump and youthful glow, and we have just the supplement for you – MedColl.
MedColl isn’t just any anti-aging supplement, it contains a formula like no other and combines innovative cosmetic knowledge with medical science. The scientifically unique formulae consists of a certified patent pending complex which combines collagen pre-cursors, hyaluronic acid, which are required by the body for the formation of collagen (collagen synthesis), and HA, along with a high load of anti-oxidants, which protect collagen and elastin fibres from degradation and other potent anti-aging natural compounds.
The mechanical properties of the skin, such as elasticity, suppleness and strength are supported by an underlying network of cells containing collagen fibres and elastin tissue permeated with hyaluronic acid, a sponge like jelly. This scaffolding of cells can become damaged and flattened by degradation giving rise to the loss of the skins’ contractile properties. The skin becomes thinner in thickness and looser, resulting in wrinkling, fine and deep wrinkling, static wrinkling and furrowing of the skin and skin roughness. The skin also sags, droops and suffers volume loss. The loss of skin structure and volume prevents the skin from being able to contract back to its initial position following expression.
The role of MedColl is to provide the body systemically with vital protein precursors and potent anti-oxidants supplementation. The compounds will provide the body with the precursors required for the formation of new collagen and therefore replenish the defective collagen throughout the body, whilst the high anti-oxidant load protects the collagen from being broken down and degrading due to oxidative stress by free radicals.
So, why take a supplement rather than using a cream straight onto the skin? Well, scientific researchers at the University College Dublin have shown that ingestible collagen is subjected to “enzymic degradation”, which means the collagen is simply broken down in the stomach by enzymes and excreted in the normal manner within 24hrs, thus proving it inefficacious, whilst collagen suspended within a cream or emulsion and intended for topical application will not and nor will it ever be able to penetrate the epidermis as the “Tropocollagen” molecule is far too large, so similarly an ineffective use of collagen.
By internally supplementing and enhancing the body’s underlying support network with collagen, this not only improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also delays the effects of further aging of the skin’s structure. MedColl assists in replenishing, maintaining and protecting collagen, HA and elastin fibres that improve the elasticity, flexibility and appearance of the skin.
