Read on to find out 5 different ways that Vitality X + Collagen gives you a youthful glow...All based on scientific research!

Reduces Wrinkles

This double-blind, placebo-controlled study examined the impact of a specific bioactive collagen peptide (VERISOL®) on eye wrinkle formation and stimulation of procollagen I, elastin and fibrillin biosynthesis in the skin. 

One hundred and fourteen women aged 45-65 years were randomised to receive 2.5 g of Bioactive Collagen Peptides or placebo, once daily for 8 weeks, with 57 subjects being allocated to each treatment group. Wrinkles were assessed in all volunteers prior to starting treatment. 

Results showed that the oral consumption of specific bioactive collagen peptides decreased the production of wrinkles and had a beneficial impact on the skin.

Improves Skin Elasticity 

In this double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, including 69 women ages 35-55 were randomised and received collagen peptides or a placebo once per day for 8 weeks. 

Results indicated that skin elasticity in both collagen groups improved more than the placebo group, while skin moisture also improved in both groups. This shows that collagen peptides can have a beneficial impact on skin physiology. 

Anti-Ageing Support

A reduction in total collagen production is a characteristic of ageing skin. Marine collagen hydrolysates are anti-ageing for human skin. 

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 69 women aged 35-55 years were randomized to receive 2.5 g or 5.0 g of Collagen Hydrolysate or placebo once daily for 8 weeks, with 23 subjects being allocated to each treatment group. Skin elasticity showed a statistically significant improvement in comparison to the placebo group.

Repairs Sun-Damaged Skin

The deposition of collagen reduces with ageing, and even more so with exposure to the sun. Research evaluated the influence of daily ingestion of collagen peptides on skin damage induced by repeated UV radiation from the sun. 

Collagen peptides suppressed UV induced decreases in skin hydration, hyperplasia and type 1 collagen. Results demonstrated that collagen peptides are beneficial in repairing UV-induced skin damage and ageing. 

Improves Skin Hydration

A study evaluated the impact of hydrolysed collagen on the skin hydration of 20 healthy Japanese women, comparing their results to a placebo group of 19. After 60 days, an improvement in skin hydration was seen in the group who ingested collagen peptides, compared to the placebo group. Another study showed an improvement in skin conditions of women after ingesting marine collagen peptides for 6 weeks.

Another study showed that fish collagen peptides increased hydration and skin moisture by 12% in 8 weeks.
