|Type I Marine Collagen Peptides
Our Collagen is a natural source of Type I collagen peptides. Type I collagen is a major protein that constitutes more than 75% of the protein found in our connective tissues and skin. This plays an essential role in maintaining skin tone, suppleness, and elasticity. Unfortunately after the age of 25, collagen sythesis in our body reduces at a rate of 1.5% per year. By the age of 45, collagen levels may have fallen by as much as 30%. The external effects of this process are the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dry skin.
Beau Relax collagen is a rejuvenating ingredient that provides a pure and concentrated level of Type I collagen. It replenishes the body, providing essential nutrients to rebuild the collagen network due to its small molecular weight and high bioavailability. Beau Relax collagen contains more than 16% of essential amino acids (9/10) and around 50% of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. These are key amino- acids that constitute Type I collagen. No other source of protein can provide this ratio of major skin components. The studies in this report show that regular use of our collagen may help to slow signs of aging by increasing collagen synthesis, skin elasticity and firmness, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
TYPE I COLLAGEN VS. TYPE II COLLAGEN
Type I collagen is composed of two (alpha 1) chains and one (alpha 2) chain. Type I collagen is a higher percentage of the body’s collagen protein than Type II collagen, and it is widely present in skin (75-80%), bones (30%), teeth, ligaments (80%), tendons (86%), and the placenta (>70%). While it may play a positive role in skin beauty, Type I collagen is also found in bones, tendons, and ligaments, which are key compounds in articular mechanisms.
Type II collagen is only composed of three (alpha 1) chains and is the basis for articular cartilage and hyaline cartilage alone. It may only help to rebuild cartilage, and its benefits are limited to articular comfort.
COLLAGEN PEPTIDES’ ROLE IN THE AGING PROCESS
Skin aging is a process that is both Intrinsic and Extrinsic. Intrinsic aging is due to genetic and hormonal processes. Extrinsic aging is caused by external factors like UV radiation, smoking, pollution. They stimulate the production of free radicals, the main enemies of the skin, inducing oxidative stress. Extrainsic and Intrinsic aging reduce the number and the quality of collagen fibers. They also reduce the skin’s elasticity and uniformity.
In young skin, the epidermis is thick and structured. The lipid barrier between cells works properly. In the dermis, the fibroblasts synthesize collagen and elastin. These fibers are numerous and dense and give the skin firmness and strength. In mature skin, the epidermis thins and cell renewal is slower. In the dermis, the fibroblasts synthesize is depleted and a decreased number of bers negatively impacts skin’s function.
HOW DOES COLLAGEN WORK WITH HYALURONIC ACID and other dietary supplement ingredients?
Hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed collagen have different functions in the epidermis, but are both moisturizing ingredients that retard water evaporation from the
skin and provide a large barrier to trans-epidermal water loss. In the epidermis, hyaluronic acid forms a gel with large amounts of water, which in effect plumps up the skin by resisting the pressure from the collagen fibrils forming skin’s matrix. Thus, the size and density of the collagen fibrils and hyaluronic acid in skin have a strong impact on skin’s health and function. Fish collagen peptides may also have synergies with other ingredients. Studies have shown synergistic value with antioxidants like Vitamin C, for instance. Marine hydrolyzed collagen has also been shown to accelerate absorption of dietary calcium by increasing calcium bioavailability. (Effect of calcium compounds from oyster shell bound sh skin gelatin peptide in calcium deficient rats. Journal of the Korean Fisheries. Kim, G. H., Jeon, Y. J., Byun, H. G., Lee, Y. S., & Kim, S. K. (1998). Society, 31, 149 -159).
Clinical studies show that after 2 weeks, oral ingestion of 10g fish collagen /day counteracts skin ageing and improves skin appearance (skin firmness, hydration, & brightness)
|Calming Herbs and Flowers
Chamomile : relaxes nerves and soothes the nervous system, therefore helping you sleep better. Chamomile tea is a powerhouse of antioxidants and protects the skin from free-radical damage
Lavender : works as an anxiolytic (an anxiety reliever) and as a sedative, to increase relaxation and calm, and help bring about sleep. Lavender interacts with the neurotransmitter GABA to help quiet the brain and nervous system activity, reducing agitation, anger, aggression, and restlessness.
Liquorice Root : can stimulate the adrenal gland, which promotes a healthy level of cortisol in the body.
Valerian Root : promotes better sleep and reduces anxiety. It contains a chemical compound called linarin which has sedative effects. Valerian root extract causes sedation because it increases the level of GABA in the brain.
GABA or Gamma-aminobutyric acid is essentially a neurotransmitter in the nervous system. In large doses, it can exert a strong sedative effect and calm the mind and body.
Tulsi Leaf : is an Ayurvedic herb, called tulasi, holy basil. Native to India and cultivated throughout Southeast Asia, it's considered a foundational herb that, combined with other adaptogenic herbs, can help the body withstand many forms of stress.
