When it comes to a youthful appearance and maintaining radiant, plump skin, collagen is no doubt a favourite go-to product for those seeking help to guard against the effects of ageing skin. A youthful complexion has long been hailed as the ultimate beauty goal, and demand for anti-ageing products has expanded beyond creams and serums to beauty supplements that help promote visible skin benefits from within. A collagen supplement is one such product that has grown in both popularity and form, with powders, gummies and ready-to-drink options winning the hearts of beauty enthusiasts in recent years.
While collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, like all good things, it doesn’t stay around forever, prompting our search to supplement the body’s natural production of this important protein. But how much do we know about collagen and what exactly does it do for us?
What Does Collagen Do and Who Needs It?
Collagen is an important structural protein found in our body and makes up the structure of cells and tissues. Collagen is found in connective tissue, tendons, bones and of course, our skin. Essential to overall wellness, collagen helps provide strength and structure to the body and is the major structural component of skin, providing the building blocks for skin and helping to boost skin elasticity.
However, natural collagen production in the body starts to decline as we age, and adults produce about 1.5% less collagen every year. This may lead to characteristic signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging and less radiant skin. But while collagen loss that comes with age is inevitable, our lifestyle choices and external factors can accelerate this process. Smoking, excessive drinking, pollution and oxidative stressors including UV rays can inhibit the production of collagen, and impede the skin’s repair mechanism, further accelerating visible signs of ageing.
Collagen is essential to our overall wellness as it provides strength and structure to the body and supports the skin and body to function ideally. As a result, more people have incorporated collagen supplements into their diet and with collagen production peaking and declining as early as in our 20s, it is suitable for anyone looking to boost availability of this important protein, support overall wellness and of course, promote youthful, healthy-looking skin.
What Makes Pharmanex Inner Focus Collagen Plus Stand Out From Other Collagen Supplements?
Pharmanex Inner Focus Collagen Plus is a clinically proven collagen supplement that helps support multiple important areas of skin health. It features a proprietary ingredient blend that improves the skin by helping to boost collagen and elastin production. It also supports skin hydration to help you achieve more youthful-looking skin and may reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This proprietary ingredient blend is further differentiated through the use of an elite class of bioactive collagen peptides. Collagen peptides have a lower molecular weight as compared to regular collagen, making it smaller in size, so unlike regular collagen it is more digestible, better absorbed and better distributed in the body. But not all collagen peptides are created equal. Inner Focus Collagen Plus takes it up a notch as it is powered by Bioactive Collagen Peptides. It features a very specific peptide profile or peptide “fingerprint” that makes it more bioactive and consistently more effective than other collagen peptides. This unique peptide fingerprint delivers dual-action benefits – functioning as building blocks to support collagen production and working as a signal to cells to produce more collagen and elastin.
Clinical studies showed that Bioactive Collagen Peptide scored the highest stimulatory effect of collagen synthesis in collagen-producing skin cells when compared with generic collagen peptides. Simply put, it offers real-world benefits of improved skin elasticity and visibly reduced wrinkles.
And just when you think it can’t get any better, it does! Apart from featuring Bioactive Collagen Peptides, the unique blend in Pharmanex Inner Focus Collagen Plus contains two other skin-loving ingredients – Lutein and Phytoceramides. Infused with Lutein extracted from marigold flowers, this carotenoid helps boost skin radiance and helps protect the skin from oxidative stressors. Phytoceramides derived from wheat lipid extract are plant-based ceramides similar to those found naturally in the skin and helps support the skin’s moisture barrier to keep it hydrated.
