We have all heard of collagen, mainly in cosmetic procedures, but what exactly is collagen and why is it important?
Well, collagen along with elastin and hyaluronic acid are essential ingredients for acheiving youthful, radiant looking skin.
Collagen gives our skin its firmness, hyaluronic acid provides moisture retention and elastin gives skin its flexibility (spring back when stretched).
Unfortunately, as we become older our body's ability to reproduce collagen and elastin slows down, causing the structure of the skin to weaken. This results in wrinkles, sagging and all the other signs of ageing.
Regular Vitamin C intake is a vital building block for the development of collagen, giving the body the kick it needs to re-stimulate collagen and build-up for he skin's structure.
Humans, along with our pink friends the pigs are the only animals that do not naturally produce Vitamin C and therefore rely on Vitamin C intake solely from our diets.
So what are our options when it comes to getting good does of Vitamin C into our body?
Well, one options is our Skin Vit-C capsules. We can make it really easy to get high-quality Vitamin C absorbed and put to good use by accelerating the production of collagen.
A single Skin Vit-C capsule provides the Vitamin C equivalent to these other alternatives:
