    COLLAGEN DESCRIPTION

    Collagen is a natural protein component of the skin that acts like a scaffold and the main building block for cells, tissues and organs. About a third of the protein content in your body is made up of collagen, which is found in the bones, muscles, and tissues of the organs. Collagen, keratin and elastin give the skin its strength, elasticity and structure. The body naturally produces the collagen that it needs, but this production is gradually disrupted as part of the natural aging process. Women produce less collagen than men, and this collagen is lost at a rate of about 1-percent per year. This means that a woman has naturally lost almost half of the collagen from her skin by the age of 50.

    Collagen is also greatly affected by environmental stresses such as sun exposure, nutrition, skin damage, and exposure to toxins such as pollutants, cigarette smoke and recreational drugs. With decreased collagen, the skin loses its natural elasticity and firmness, and fine lines, wrinkles and sagging appear. Poor collagen levels also affect the bones and bone structure. Collagen loss affects facial shape in extreme age degeneration.





    COLLAGEN USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    The benefits of collagen supplementation are vast, since collagen is a key component in the structure of the entire body. A list of common health and beauty benefits of collagen supplements are listed below:

    TYPE-I COLLAGEN & SKIN HEALTH

    The skin is the body's largest organ, and is responsible for sensation of temperature, pressure, and multiple other important functions. Collagen makes up the majority amount of the skin structure. As the skin undergoes natural chronological aging, and is attacked through photoaging, the natural skin structure begins to deteriorate. Fortunately, lost body collagen stores can be effectively replaced through the right supplements. Supplemental collagen can increase strength around high movement areas of the skin where wrinkles form. Fortifying the skin's structure by eating collagen also results in the strengthening of pore walls, slowing down sagging skin and enlarged pores. The result is more youthful looking skin during aging.
    • Most common benefit of Type-I collagen is Improved skin texture and firmness. Also an average 13-percent reduction in wrinkles.
    • Another benefit of Type-I Collagen is reduced appearance of cellulite.

    TYPE-I COLLAGEN & HAIR / NAIL HEALTH

    During aging, hair and nails gradually become more brittle, hair breakage occurs, nails are thinner. This is, in part, a result of the reduced collagen production in the body. Collagen is a key component to new hair growth and hair quality. Supplemental collagen can increase the hair shaft, improve hair and nail growth, and improve its quality to reduce breakage during the life of the hair.
    • Common benefit of Type-I Collagen is new hair and nail growth, improvement in quality and strength after approximately 3 months.
    • Another benefth of Type-I Collagen is improved circulations to hair and nails.

    TYPE-II COLLAGEN & JOINT HEALTH

    Type-II Collagen applies to joint cartilage and has been very effective with rebuilding joints.
    • Most commong benefit of Type-II Collagen is improved tendon and joint flexibility and strength.
    • Another benefit of Type-II Collagen is reduced joint pain.
    • Type-II Collagen has a benefit of improved recovery from sports injuries and muscle repair.

    Conventional medicine and science tend to be "negative nellies" about many natural therapies and alternative health approaches, They are extremely slow in supporting or utilizing any therapy that challenges any existing medical mindset, including nutrition support. This also includes using collagen supplements and collagen skin care products. They do not support anything that has not been researched repeatedly over and over again in randomized, blind, controlled studies in a laboratory over a long time span of several years using both animal and human study subjects. The problem with studies is someone has to fund them and then perform them without biases and flaws. The approval process is long, expensive, and mired with miles of red tape and governmental policies and the outcomes are not necessarily financially beneficial for manufacturers and distributors. Profit tends to be the bottom line, not necessarily whether a therapy works or not. Even with positive and supporting research, medical acceptance moves at a snail's pace.

    Regardless of the slow research about collagen supplements and benefits, there are still many products on the shelves that can be tried by the consumer to self-treat collagen-related health concerns. The final truth is in the outcome of product or therapy usage. If it works a consumer will continue to use it. If it doesn't, the consumer will stop using the product or therapy and try something else.


    CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL OPINION

    Collagen supplements claim to offer a range of benefits, including:
    • Reducing wrinkles.
    • Reversing age of skin.
    • Tighter skin.
    • Plumps up skin.
    • Improves skin elasticity.
    According to conventional scientific and medical authority, there is little to no evidence that beauty supplements, pills and drinks can do what they claim. Research is lacking or may be contradictory in whether supplemental collagen is beneficial. Collagen is a type of protein which when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system into individual amino acids to be recombined by cells according to their needs. The body uses and rebuilds nutrients it needs from individual amino acids to be utilized to maintain health. It is important to provide the right nutrients in the required amounts for proper use by the body.

    So many companies have jumped on the collagen bandwagon that it is very hard for consumers to realize that there is actually no scientific proof that collagen supplements have any effects on skin health and appearance at all. There is no guarantee that drinking collagen drinks would be any more effective than any source of protein such as meat, cheese, eggs or beans at restoring the collagen in your skin.

    So if you cannot get collagen through a drink or supplement, what about using skin care products containing collagen? Most collagen molecules applied to the skin in lotion, cream or gel forms are far too large to be absorbed into the dermis - they merely lie on the surface and get washed or rubbed off. There are some companies that are selling micronized collagen which are meant to be small enough to be absorbed into the skin, but it is unlikely these micro molecules would be in any form useable by skin cells. It is also highly likely that any collagen that actually manages to penetrate the skin would be challenged by the body's immune system as a foreign body. They would either cause an allergic reaction or simply be destroyed by the white blood cells before they manage to be of any benefit to the skin whatsoever.

    COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENT RESEARCH

    These are some collagen research studies and trials:


    COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENT ORAL PILL

    J Agric Food Chem. 2012. Effect of the novel low molecular weight hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract, BioCell Collagen, on improving osteoarthritis-related symptoms: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. The aim of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was to investigate the tolerability and efficacy of BioCell Collagen (BCC), a low molecular weight dietary supplement consisting of hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract, in the treatment of OA symptoms. 80 Patients in the study had physician-verified evidence of progressive OA in their hip and/or knee joint. Joint pain had been present for 3 months or longer at enrollment, and pain levels were 4 or higher at baseline as assessed by Physician Global Assessment scores. Subjects were divided into two groups and administered either 2 g of BCC or placebo for 70 days. BioCell Collagen was well tolerated and found to be effective in managing OA-associated symptoms over the study period, thereby improving patient's activities of daily living. BCC can be considered a potential complement to current OA therapies.



    Collagen cream concentrate is promoted for dry skin.

    COLLAGEN EFFECT ON SKIN

    Clin Interv Aging. 2012. Ingestion of BioCell Collagen, a novel hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract; enhanced blood microcirculation and reduced facial aging signs. Daily supplementation with 1 g of BCC for 12 weeks led to a significant reduction of skin dryness/scaling and global lines / wrinkles as measured by visual/tactile score. Additionally, a significant increase in the content of hemoglobin and collagenin the skin dermis was observed after 6 weeks of supplementation. This study provides preliminary data suggesting that dietary supplementation with BCC elicits several physiological events which can be harnessed to counteract natural photoaging processes to reduce visible aging signs in the human face. However, a controlled study is necessary to verify these observations.

    Clin Interv Aging. 2014. Daily consumption of the collagen supplement Pure Gold Collagen® reduces visible signs of aging. The nutritional supplement, Pure Gold Collagen(®), which consists of hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and minerals, was developed to counteract these signs. An open-label study was conducted to investigate the effects of this nutritional supplement on skin properties. Supplementation with 50 mL of Pure Gold Collagen on a daily basis for 60 days led to a noticeable reduction in skin dryness, wrinkles, and nasolabial fold depth. In addition, a significant increase in collagen density and skin firmness was observed after 12 weeks. The data from this study suggest that Pure Gold Collagen can counteract signs of natural aging.



    ARTHRITIS & OSTEOARTHRITIS

    J Agric Food Chem. 2012. Effect of the novel low molecular weight hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract, BioCell Collagen, on improving osteoarthritis-related symptoms: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Schauss AG, Stenehjem J, Park J, Endres JR, Clewell A. AIBMR Life Sciences, Inc., Puyallup, Washington, United States. The aim of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was to investigate the tolerability and efficacy of BioCell Collagen (BCC), a low molecular weight dietary supplement consisting of hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract, in the treatment of OA symptoms. Subjects were divided into two groups and administered either 2 g of BCC or placebo for 70 days. Other outcome measurements included visual analogue scale (VAS) for pain and Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC) scores taken on days 1, 35, and 70. The tolerability profile of the treatment group was comparable to that of the placebo. Intent-to-treat analysis showed that the treatment group, as compared to placebo, had a significant reduction of VAS pain on day 70 and of WOMAC scores on both days 35 and 70. The BCC group experienced a significant improvement in physical activities compared to the placebo group on days 35 and 70. BCC was well tolerated and found to be effective in managing OA-associated symptoms over the study period, thereby improving patient's activities of daily living.

    Safety and efficacy of undenatured type II collagen in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee: a clinical trial.
    Int J Med Sci. 2009; Crowley DC, Lau FC, Sharma P, Evans M, Guthrie N, Bagchi M, Bagchi D. KGK Synergize Incorporated, London, ON, Canada.
    Previous studies have shown that undenatured type II collagen (UC-II) is effective in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, and preliminary human and animal trials have shown it to be effective in treating osteoarthritis (OA). The present clinical trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of UC-II as compared to a combination of glucosamine and chondroitin (G+C) in the treatment of OA of the knee. The results indicate that UC-II treatment was more efficacious resulting in a significant reduction in all assessments from the baseline at 90 days; whereas, this effect was not observed in G+C treatment group. Specifically, although both treatments reduced the Western Ontario McMaster Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score, treatment with UC-II reduced the WOMAC score by 33% as compared to 14% in G+C treated group after 90 days. Similar results were obtained for visual analog scale (VAS) scores. Although both the treatments reduced the VAS score, UC-II treatment decreased VAS score by 40% after 90 days as compared to 15% in G+C treated group. UC-II treated subjects showed significant enhancement in daily activities suggesting an improvement in their quality of life.



    Anti-type II collagen autoantibodies are present in rheumatoid arthritis.

    CHICKEN COLLAGEN & RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS

    Dr. Wei Wei at Anhui Medical University in Hefei and colleagues conducted a randomized 24-week trial comparing chicken collagen (0.1 milligrams daily in pill form) and methotrexate (10 milligrams per week) in 236 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Other "second-line" drugs for rheumatoid arthritis had been discontinued, but patients were allowed to continue use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs. Patients in both groups saw a decrease in pain, morning stiffness, number of tender and swollen joints, and improvement in their health-related quality of life. At the end of the trial, 41 percent of patients treated with chicken collagen and 58 percent of those treated with methotrexate had improved. Arthritis & Rheumatism, 2008.

    A randomized, double-blind, multicenter, controlled clinical trial of chicken type II collagen in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis Rheum. 2008. Anhui Medical University, Key Laboratory of Antiinflammatory and Immunopharmacology in Anhui Province, Hefei, China. To assess the efficacy and safety of chicken type II collagen in rheumatoid arthritis compared with methotrexate. We conducted a prospective, 24-week, followup, multicenter, double-blind, controlled study of chicken type II collagen (0.1 mg/day) versus methotrexate (10 mg/week) in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis. In both groups there was a decrease in pain, morning stiffness, tender joint count, swollen joint count. In the methotrexate group, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein level decreased. Rheumatoid factor did not change in either group. At 24 weeks, 68% of patients in the chicken type II collagen group and 83% in the methotrexate group met the American College of Rheumatology 20% improvement criteria. chicken type II collagen is effective in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. chicken type II collagen is well tolerated, and the incidence of adverse events of chicken type II collagen is lower than that of methotrexate.



    Other collagen uses in the body.

    WOUND HEALING

    Collagen plays a major role in wound healing. Its presence is important in all stages of the healing process. However, this does not mean that ingesting a collagen supplement leads to better wound healing.

    Catrix is a new collagen wound-healing powder that has been shown to be effective in the treatment of wounds healing by secondary intent such as pressure ulcers, venous stasis ulcers and diabetic ulcers as well as second-degree burns and post-radiation dermatitis. Catrix has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of wounds unresponsive to conventional treatments. It promotes the growth of fibroblasts and keratinocytes in the wound, prevents loss of fluid from the wound and protects the wound from bacterial infections and other agents. Catrix is biodegradable and therefore does not require removal from the wound bed before re-application.

    COLLAGEN & THE HEART

    Collagen fibers are the most abundant components of the extracellular matrix in arteries and myocardium. Disturbances in the collagen turnover (synthesis and degradation) have been linked to inflammatory diseases including cardiovascular pathological syndromes. In the myocardium, changes in collagen turnover may result in ventricle dilatation and subsequent contractile dysfunction. In arteries, collagen synthesis and degradation are associated with the progression of atherosclerotic disease and intimal hyperplasia following injury. Collagen synthesis is tightly regulated at several levels: synthesis of procollagens, suitable folding of polypeptides, secretion and cross-linking of mature fibers. On the other hand, degradation of newly synthesised procollagen and mature collagen fibers depends on the action of Matrix-Metalloproteinases (MMPs).

    COLLAGEN & CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASE

    Glucocorticoids are irreplaceable for the treatment of connective tissue diseases due to their strong and rapid anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulatory effects. Its use and their dosage depend on the activity of the disease and organ manifestations. There is no alternative to high doses, often even as intravenous pulse therapy, in life-threatening situations with imminent organ failure. Despite an additional immuno- suppressive medication, glucocorticosteroids are mandatory for long-term treatment in most cases. In special situations like high age, gravity or comorbidities like renal failure or hepatosis, glucocorticosteroids are the option with the least possible potential for complications. In the future, new corticosteroids and steroid sparing immuno-suppressants like biologics will be able to reduce the spectrum and the severity of corticoid-induced side effects. Modern state-of-the-art therapeutic regimens for patients with connective tissue diseases should not only be able to sufficiently control the disease activity but also include the prophylaxis of associated comorbidities like arteriosclerosis, osteoporosis or infections.

    BONE DENSITY & SHARK SKIN COLLAGEN

    Research review: Increase in bone mineral density through oral administration of shark gelatin to ovariectomized rats. Nutrition. 2005. The incidence of bovine spongiform encephalopathy has resulted in marine collagen hydrolysate (low-molecular-weight gelatin) being sold as supplements and cosmetics in Japan. Shark skin collagen is one of the important sources of marine collagen. We examined the effect of shark skin gelatin in an osteoporosis model animal. Shark skin gelatin was orally administered to ovariectomized rats with a low-protein diet. Bone mineral density of the right femur was measured. Collagen and glycosaminoglycan in the tibial end were extracted and analyzed by western blotting and cellulose acetate membrane electrophoresis, respectively. Administering collagen to the ovariectomized rats resulted in the bone mineral density of the femur epiphysis being higher than that in the sham-operated rats. The contents of type I collagen and glycosaminoglycan in the epiphysis were increased by administering shark skin gelatin. These results indicated that shark skin gelatin would be useful as a dietary supplement for treating osteoporosis.

    JOINT MOBILITY & FLEXIBILITY

    Results from a new study with adult athletes at the German Olympic Center in Essen, Germany find that during a 12-week study period, 79 percent of the study's participants had statistically significant improvement in joint mobility and flexibility after a course of CH-Alpha. The postmarketing surveillance study was conducted to determine whether CH-Alpha, a nutritional supplement containing collagen hydrolysate, could ease restricted mobility and pain in athletes' knees or hips when walking or climbing stairs, or pain in the shoulder when lifting and manipulating objects above the head. The objective of this postmarketing surveillance study was to determine whether oral use of Collagen Hydrolysate CH-Alpha in athletically active individuals suffering from arthralgia induced by high-intensity athletic activity confers benefit in terms of improvement in pain, functional limitations, or inflammatory activity. This study aimed to determine whether participating athletes' subjective well-being and objective findings, as assessed by the treating physician, change when taking collagen hydrolysate and, if so, whether these changes can be quantified by selected outcome measures. Subjects took 10g of Collagen Hydrolysate CH-Alpha per day for 12 weeks. Subjects were interviewed and assessed before starting to take collagen hydrolysate (baseline visit), during treatment (interim visit at 4 to 6 weeks after the start of therapy), and at the end of therapy (final visit at 12 weeks). The results showed that during the 12-week study, most participants had marked improvement in most of the metrics employed, with significant improvements in mobility, hip or knee pain related to exertion and when walking up stairs, and in shoulder pain when lifting and manipulating objects above the head. Pain on movement was eased in 78 percent of the 86 subjects whose study results were fully evaluated. In athletes with hip or knee pain and those with shoulder pain, 79 percent had reduced pain when climbing stairs or lifting heavy objects respectively. CH-Alpha is a liquid in a vial providing 10 grams of collagen hydrolysate, a collection of proteins and amino acids (the building blocks necessary for joint health). CH-Alpha is a natural product with an amino acid composition nearly identical to the collagen found in the extracellular matrix in joints. CH-Alpha(TM) may increase the concentration of type II collagen and proteoglycans through the stimulation of chondrocytes. The CH-Alpha used in the Olympic Center study was developed and is marketed by GELITA Health Products, which has supported scientific research on collagen hydrolysate since the late 1970s.

    COLLAGEN-RELATED SKIN CARE MEDICAL ADVICE

    The abundance of collagen supplements on the market tells us that many people are genuinely concerned about their skin health. Based on the best dermatological and anti-aging expert advice, what can be done to ensure we are able to look our best as we age?

  • Reduce Collagen Degradation: To ensure sufficient collagen in the skin, first prevent loss of the collagen that you already have. If you are not already on a proper sun-care regimen, that should be your first priority. Studies have shown that sun protection is one of the most important ways in which you can combat aging. Cigarette smoke, like sun exposure, has also been shown to greatly degenerate collagen, and there is also evidence that improper and insufficient sleep has a negative effect on skin health. See Skin Care Information for more skin care tips and recommendations.

  • Nutritious Diet: Eating the right foods and getting good sources of antioxidants from fruits and vegetables is very important for collagen production. Brightly colored fruit produce such as tomatoes, grapefruit and watermelon contain the powerful antioxidant Lycopene, which helps prevent collagen degeneration. Fruits such as oranges, strawberries and red peppers (hot and mild) also contain Vitamin C, something that is key for the optimum condition of the skin. Vegetables such as broccoli, leafy greens and cauliflower provide our skin with glucosinolates, which fight the free radicals that attack our collagen. Also key to skin health is the Omega-3 Fatty Acid known as eicosapentanoic acid or EPA, which has anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects to help protect and heal the skin. Omega-3 is readily available from food sources such as oily fish and spirulina. Avoid starchy foods and sugary substances; this helps reduce inflammation which interferes with the body's natural collagen production processes.

  • Proper Skin Care: The right skin care helps regulate the optimum skin condition so that it is protected from extreme stresses. Regular exfoliation with a gentle exfoliator scrub, or with alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) can help to 'exercise' the skin, and ensure healthy cell renewal. Skin care products that have been proven to help combat aging include products that have antioxidant properties, examples of which include green tea extracts, coffeeberry and DHEA. Try products with retinol, a Vitamin A derivative, sometimes known as Retin-A, which works to both stop collagen degradation from the effects of UV exposure while boosting collagen production.

  • Collagen Stimulating Dermal Fillers: Hyaluronic Acid, a natural water-binding component of the skin, helps to stimulate collagen production by surrounding fibroblasts - the skin cells that produce collagen - with plenty of water. As the skin ages, this important component of the skin also suffers a decline.

  • Researchers at the University of Michigan medical school found that Restylane injections (Restylane's key component is hyaluronic acid) not only stimulated the fibroblasts around them to increase collagen output, but also seemed to be protective of the existing collagen in the area as well. The two top hyaluronic acid dermal filler brands are Restylane and Juvederm, and they work by immediately filling the area to plump out lines and wrinkles. The effects of the filler are enhanced by the collagen stimulation, so patients tend to need repeat sessions less frequently.

    Just like hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA, has been shown to stimulate collagen growth. PLLA is a major component in Sculptra dermal fillers, which are injected deep into the dermal layer in a three-session treatment program which lasts up to two years. Sculptra has been proven to correct both collagen loss and fat atrophy, and is also FDA approved for AIDS patients who have severe cheek lipoatrophy (fat loss).

    Radiesse, which has calcium hydroxylapatite as its collagen stimulating active ingredient, is another dermal filler that works very effectively in restoring volume in patients with deep lines or sagging skin. The effects of the collagen stimulation allows the volumising effect of Radiesse to last for about 12 months or more.

  • Laser & RF Collagen Stimulation: Collagen production slows with the aging process, but where the skin is injured, collagen production is increased as part of the skin healing process. Aesthetic equipment such as carbon dioxide and Fraxel lasers, and radiofrequency modalities such as Thermage and Ultherapy all work by subjecting the skin to controlled damage, so that collagen renewal can be stimulated. All of these methods work very well to tighten the skin and improve its appearance, although lasers are designed to stimulate regrowth on the surface and epidermal (top layer) areas, and radiofrequency skin tightening works in the deeper dermal areas for greater wrinkle and line rejuvenation.


  • HOLISTIC SKIN CARE TIPS

    Good skin care includes sun protection, gentle cleansing, moisturizing, healthy diet, sleep, and stress reduction. You can try to keep you skin healthy and glowing for years to come. Even if you do not have much time for intensive skin care, you can still pamper yourself by using some basic skin care choices and follow healthy lifestyle choices. These can help delay the natural aging process and prevent various skin problems.

    SUN PROTECTION

    One of the first and most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. For the most complete sun protection use Sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. A SPF of 30 or higher is better. Apply sunscreen generously by filling the hollow of your palm (about 1/2 teaspoon) with sunscreen to coat the face, neck, and ears. Apply two coats from the amount squeezed out to make sure you are well covered. Then reapply every two hours, or more often if you are swimming or perspiring. Sunscreen stops working in less than 3 hours, so reapplication is key. For easy touchups, a powder sunscreen can be useful and has a light touch. Using a sunscreen with a light tint of color in it can help to smooth out skin blotchiness and color while providing protection. It also helps to reduce the amount of makeup used on the skin. Some sunscreens have a low level of self-tanning tint to them.

    Stay in the shade as much as possible. Avoid sunlight between 10 am and 2 pm, when the sun's rays are strongest. Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats. Also consider laundry additives, which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet protection for a certain number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing, which is specifically designed to block ultraviolet rays.

    Avoid sunbathing and tanning beds. They damage the skin, causing skin discolorations and spots while intensely raising the risk of skin cancer.

    Sunscreen is not just for summertime. Winter sun, combined with snow glare, can still damage your skin. Try applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and your hands if they are exposed about 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply frequently if you stay outside a long time.

    DO NOT SMOKE TOBACCO (OR ANYTHING ELSE)

    Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health. Smoking also damages Collagen and Elastin, the fibers that give your skin strength and elasticity. In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when smoking, such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke, can contribute to wrinkles. If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. Ask your health care provider for tips or treatments to help you stop smoking.

    TREAT YOU SKIN GENTLY

    Daily cleansing and shaving can take a toll on your skin. To keep it gentle:
    • Limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Use warm rather than hot water to bathe.
    • Avoid strong soaps. Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers.
    • Shave carefully. To protect and lubricate your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. For the closest shave, use a clean, sharp razor. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it.
    • Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin.
    • Moisturize dry skin. If your skin is dry, use a moisturizer that fits your skin type. For daily use, consider a moisturizer that contains SPF.

    Banning superhot baths is necessary if you have problems with dry skin. Soaking in a burning-hot bath feels great after frolicking out in the winter cold. But the intense heat of a hot shower or bath actually breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin, which can lead to a loss of moisture. You are better off with just warm water and staying in the water a shorter amount of time. A lukewarm bath with Oatmeal or Baking Soda, can help relieve skin that is so dry it has become itchy. So, too, can periodically reapplying your moisturizer. If those techniques do not work, go see a dermatologist. You may need a prescription lotion to combat the dry skin or you may have a condition that is not simply dry skin and that requires different treatment.

    Avoid using harsh skin cleansers that can be drying and counterproductive. Find a good mild hydrating cleanser, more organic the better without drying chemicals (like alcohol) added to it. Follow with a good herbal toner and then a deep moisturizer to replace lost skin surface oils.

    If your facial skin is uncomfortably dry, avoid using harsh peels, masks, and alcohol-based toners or astringents, all of which can strip vital oil from your skin. Instead, find a cleansing milk or mild foaming cleanser, a toner with no alcohol, and masks that are "deeply hydrating," rather than clay-based, which tends to draw moisture out of the face. And use them a little less often.

    For irritated eyes and puffiness or skin irritation, a bag of frozen peas work well. This is refreshing when you get home from a long day at work. Remove your makeup and skin care fromyour face and put a bag of frozen peas on your eyelids for about 5 minutes. The cold helps reduce swelling and pigmentation, a side effect of repeated irritation from skin problems like eczema and allergies. Unlike inflexable ice packs, a bag of peas easily conforms to the shape of the eyes for a faster effect.

    If you do have a skin breakout, and we all do from time to time, no matter how old we get. Do not squeeze your pimples unless there is actually a white top to it (a white head). Then carefully, gently press on both sides of the pimple until it releases its contents, Once the contents are out, clean off the area and dab a little salicylic acid treatment on top to help to dry it out and heal. I actually preferred using a qauze pad with Witch Hazel as a cleanser to dry up and reduce swelling of breakouts. Using pore strips or a peeling facial mask once a week to remove pore grime can be beneficial.

    MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE & MOISTURIZE

    Moisturizing your skin to keep it from drying out is one of the top recommendations for health, supple, and beautiful skin. Start moisturizing at an early age while still a young teen. As we age we lose our natural moisture in our skin with reduced oil production and lower homeone levels. Dehydration is a major factor in dry skin. Older folks are often dehydrated and do not even realize it.

    You will need to change your moisturized, depending upon the season and weather. Your moisturizer you may use in the spring and summer may work fine, but as weather conditions change, so too, should your skin care routine. Find an "Ointment" moisturizer that is oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion. Many lotions labeled as "Night Creams" are oil-based.

    Choose your skin oils with care because not all oils are appropriate for the face. Instead, look for non-clogging oils, like Avocado Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, or Almond Oil. Others, like Shea Nut Oil or Shea Butter may clog facial pores. They are fine for the body, but may not be appropriate for facial skin as they would sit on the skin and be greasy feeling. You can also look for lotions containing "humectants," a class of substances (including Glyserin, sorbitol, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids, that attract moisture to your skin.

    Age will play a factor in choosing a moisturizer. What works for a 20-something will not work as well for a 60-something skin. Regularly try new products and alternate them, changing them as your skin requires. Men as well as women need to pay attention to their skin and regularly moisturize and follow a skin care regime. Keep a bottle or tube of intensive care moisturizer by the sink to use everytime you have your hands in soapy water or handling harsh chemical products. Certain jobs, such as laborer, mechanic, or health care worker, need to pay special attention to their skin and hand care. You want to avoid dry, cracking and bleeding skin which opens up the skin to infections and more problems.

    Massage in your moisturizer. When you massage (as compared to rubbing or dabbing) your face cream onto your skin, use gentle pressure massage stroks in a circular motion. Do the same thing when you are washing your face. This will increase blood circulation to your skin, providing oxygen and toxin removal. Besides, it feels really good. Do not just limit it to your face. A body massage with a great moisturizer with help your dry skin all over to feel better.

    Give your hands special attention. The skin on your hands is thinner than on most parts of the body and has fewer oil glands. That means it's harder to keep your hands moist, especially in cold, dry weather. This can lead to itchiness and cracking. Wear gloves when you go outside; if you need to wear wool to keep your hands warm, slip on a thin cotton glove first, to avoid any irritation the wool might cause. Apply a good amount of moisturizer before donning your gloves to add to the protection of your skin. Lanolin products can help prevent exposed skin from drying out and cracking (we used Bag Balm, a lanolin-based ointment used for milking cow teats). Wet socks and gloves can irritate your skin and cause itching, cracking, sores, or even a flare-up of eczema.

    The minty foot lotions are nice in the hot summer months but during the winter, your feet needs stronger moisturizers. Try finding creams or lotions with oil-bases or glycerin instead to prevent scaling and cracking of skin. Use exfoliants to get the dead skin off periodically. This helps any moisturizers you use to sink in faster and deeper. Exfoliate after bathing or showering when the dead skin is softened and more pliable and easier to remove.

    REVIEW YOUR EXERCISE ROUTINE

    Use support when exercising. Anything that dangles should have support, men (genitalia) and women (breasts). The repeated jarring of high-impact cardio-exercise like running can weaken collagen and lead to sagging, including your face. For your face, until a face bra is invented, it is wise to stick to cycling and the elliptcal machine. Minimize bouncing and jarring. Yoga moves like "Child's Pose, Downward-Facing Dog, and Sun Salutations" improve circulation. The boost of oxygen is what gives skin that lovely yoga glow. Research finds regular yoga exercise may reduce the inflammation and stress that speeds skin aging.

    Become religious about strength training as you age. The payoff is firmer skin from the neck down and having better, more supportive muscle tone.

    Another feel-good exercise is sexual activity. Having sex releases endorphins that give you that special glow, besides providing physical activity.

    EAT A HEALTHY DIET

    Skin care starts from the inside out. A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne is not clear, but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. The first meal of the day may include almonds. Almonds contain essential fatty acids, which help put the brakes on inflammation that accelerates fine lines, sagging, and blotchiness. Salmon, Tuna and Halibut are good lunch and dinner choices for essential fatty acids needed by the skin. A cross-training regimen is key to rapid rejuvenation. Some ingredients like sunscreen and antioxidants in the morning and retinoids and peptides at night work better as a team.

    Carbonated sodas and diet sodas contain a lot of sodium in the soda, anywhere from 25 to 50 mg per can. This can make your eyes and jawline puffy. If you must drink a soda (not recommended in a health diet) switch to a brand that is sodium-free, such as Diet Rite soda. This way it will not punish the skin, but will still satisfy a soda craving while you skin looks better.

    The breakdown of sugars, called glycation, damages the collagen that keeps skin smooth and trim. To prevent this natural process from spinning out of control, stick to low-glycemic carbohydrates like whole grains. Whole grains are naturally low in sugar and the body processes them slowly to limit the loss of collagen.

    Drinking Green Tea and Black Tea three to five times daily can help safeguard the skin. Research suggests that both types of tea contain protective compounds, like EGCG and theafavins, that help preven skin cancers and the breakdown of collagen, the cause of wrinkles. If you have a problem with sleeping, do not drink them too close to bedtime. They may keep you awake. I often blend a green tea with a herbal tea to make the best of both worlds, besides adding extra flavor to the green tea.

    A good skin care tip is to snack on citrus. If you are feeling sluggish and feel in the need for a little detox, Lemons support your liver and kidneys, and there is a clear connection between healthy organs and healthy skin. Vitamin C and Bioflavonoid rich foods such as Oranges, Lemons, Limes, and Grapefruits along with some herbs like Acerola and Rosehips are good to add to the diet.

    Although it has been said that Chocolate causes acne, scientific proof has shown otherwise. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidats that help to protect the skin and eating a small piece will also give you that satisfied happy feeling in your brain. A good stress reliever.

    KEEP HYDRATED, DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

    Hydration is essential to the body and to the skin. The body and the skin requires moisture to stay healthy. Starting from the inside out, drink at least 8 glasses of water daily, preferably spring or filtered water. If the weather is hot, drink more to replace water lost through sweating. If you exercise, be sure to replace lost fluids. Seniors need to take special care in getting enough fluids daily.

    Using a humidifier helps to keep moisture in the air, especially during the winter months when central heating systems as well as space hearters blast hot dry air throughout our homes and offices. Our indoors air gets really dried out from this indoor heating. The moisture from the humidifier helps prevent skin from drying out. Consider placing several small humidifers throughout your home so they will help disperse the moisture more evenly. Change their water frequently and clean any filters often to keep mold from growing.

    Keeping a spray bottle handy can give you a refreshing water spritz on your face, neck when feeling dried out and hot. If you use a water packed with minerals like selenium that protects against UV damage in your spray bottle, this will be an added bonus for your skin.

    MANAGE STRESS

    Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and act as a trigger for acne and other skin problems. High levels of tension can spike hormone production that leads to breakouts or aggravates conditions like psoriasis. To encourage healthy skin and a healthy state of mind, take steps to manage your stress. Controlling stress keeps your skin calm. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do lists and make time to do the things you enjoy. Taking a ten minute timeout to apply a facial mask and relaxing on the bed is one suggestion. Turn off the cell phones after 8 pm at night. Every little bit helps. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.

    GET PLENTY OF QUALITY SLEEP

    If you want your skin to look its best, make sleep a top priority. How much sleep you get (and the quality of said sleep) has a direct impact of your overall health and your complexion, including those pesky undereye bags. Getting plenty of quality sleep offers the kind of results that no face cream can mimic. With that in mind, it is time to review your good and bad bedtime habits and make some healthy changes to your bedtime routine.
    • Sleeping Too Little: Did you know that a lack of slumber ages your skin? Your body releases too little of the hormones you need and too much of the ones you do not want, like cortisol, which wreaks havoc on skin elasticity.
    • Failing To Remove Your Makeup: Dirt, oil and makeup can build up on the skin and cause blocked pores. That could mean a nasty zit come morning. Too tired for a trip to the bathroom to wash? Tuck a package of pre-moistened cleansing cloths by your bedside to wipe away grime quickly.
    • Keeping An Erratic Nighttime Schedule: Researchers now say irregular sleep patterns are just as bad as a lack of sleep. When you do not have deep, restorative sleep, your body does not have the opportunity to repair itself. Your body repairs itself while you sleep, and a full (and regular) sleep cycle makes that process easier. Stick to a regular bedtime and try to get at least six to eight hours of undisrupted sleep.
    • Sleeping On Your Stomach: It is time to break the habit if you are someone who prefers to sleep with your face buried in the pillow. The combination of body heat and gravity is bad for your skin. Switch to sleeping on your side or back, or risk a boost in wrinkles.
    • Skip The Nightcap: While a bit of alcoholic beverage might help you take the edge off a stress-filled day and get you asleep faster, it is not a wise tactic. It is actually a stimulant that will disturb your sleep part way through and can lead to dehydration, leading to skin dryness. Sip caffeine-free herbal tea instead.

    If you find it difficult to stick to your skin care regimen at bedtime, to avoid missing the evening routine, store your products in a pretty skincare case and keep it on the nightstand. This way, they are readily available to use even if you are too tired to use them in the bathroom before bed. They can be applied while in bed and just before sleep. Some suggestions may be a retinoid skin care product, a ultrahydrating moisturizer, a lip balm, cracked skin care product, nail oil to soften cuticles and teeth white strips. Also, adopt these skin boosting sleep habits:
    • Sleep On A Silk or Satin Pillowcase: These smooth fabrics lessen the amount of friction between skin and pillowcase. You will get fewer wrinkles in the long run, and, as a bonus, you will wake up with less knots and tangles in your hair.
    • Apply Night Cream Before Bed: Nighttime is when your skin works hardest on skin repair. A good cream, one that contains moisture-attracting hyaluronic acid, works even better when applied for the evening restoration cycle.
    • Keep Skin Clean & Bacteria Free: It is important to wash up with a gentle cleanser before bedtime to remove all traces of makeup and dirt, banishing bacteria buildup from the day' sweat and pollution. It is not good then to head to bed and put your face on a bacteria-laden pillowcase. Change your pillowcase at least once a week.
    • Get Good Quality Sleep - Turn Off Your Electronics: The latest research has been focusing on the negative effects of light on the quality of sleep. Alarm clocks, smart phones and tablets all emit light that fools your brain into thinking it is time to wake up. Turn off all electronics and keep your bedroom dark.
    • Sleep With A Humidifier In Your Bedroom: Drinking plenty of water is essential for you to maintain your skin's moisture levels. Using a humidifier helps to keep dryness at bay. You will also want to stay away from eating salt laden foods around bedtime to stave off dehydration.

    Ultimately, take care of your skin. It is the barrier between you and countless invading microbes. You want to keep it clean and healthy so it can take good care of you.





    COLLAGEN SAFETY, SIDE EFFECTS, & INTERACTIONS

    COLLAGEN SIDE EFFECTS

  • Most common side effect of collagen is a lingering taste in the mouth. A small percentage of users report that they get a slight lingering taste in their mouth. It usually subsides within 30 to 60 minutes.
  • An allergic reaction may occur in individuals allergic to collagen sources (bovine, porcine, fish, shellfish, chicken).
  • Decreased appetite. Depending on your particular situation, this could be a side effect or a benefit.


  • Collagen side effects are reported by approximately 0.1-percent of collagen supplement users (that is about one in one thousand). Other than in the case of allergies, the drawbacks, or side effects, of eating collagen appear to be negligible.

    AGELESS BEAUTY PRODUCTS

    AGELESS BEAUTY - Offers a nutritional approach to beautiful skin by providing the body with 'Live' whole food support. This increased raw food supply produces antioxidant enzymes in the body which cleanses toxins and free radicals and helps the skin return to its natural beautiful state. When most people think about caring for their skin, they generally think of things to do on the outside. They buy cleansers, lotions, oils and emollients to put on their skin. What most people do not realize is that much of the skin damage that concerns them really occurs from the inside out.

    RESEARCH DATA - WHERE IS THE ENEMY? Biochemists have isolated a type of molecule in our bodies which is related to the skin damage associated with both aging and disease. These agents of destruction are called 'Free Radicals', unstable molecules which steal electrons from healthy cells and set off` chain reactions of cell damage.

    HOW IS THE SKIN DAMAGE CAUSED? Free radicals cause widespread damage throughout the body. Their effects on the skin are particularly visible. All the cells of the skin are sealed in protective membranes containing lipids (fats) that protect the inner cell and allow for proper formation of elastin and collagen, the tissues that give skin its softness, flexibility and resiliency. Free radicals, especially lipid peroxides, damage this protective cell membrane and destroy the skin's elastin and collagen resulting in sagging, wrinkling and age spots. Overproduction of free radicals occurs when the body is subjected to stress from sources such as environmental pollutants, processed food, radiation. trauma, disease and the pressures of life in the modern world. These factors soon translate to damage skin and premature aging.

    DOES NATURE PROVIDE A DEFENSE? Nature equips the healthy young body to defend itself against free radicals. This natural defense is in the form of antioxidant enzymes, particularly Glutathione Peroxidase, which effectively stops the attack of 'lipid peroxides'. If the body's supply of Glutathione Peroxidase never faded, its protective function theoretically could last indefinitely, and youthful skin would be ours for a lifetime. The problem is that our body's natural supply of antioxidant enzymes including Glutathione Peroxidase declines as we age. These vital protectors of healthy skin cannot keep pace with the free radicals that result from the stresses of living in a 20th century environment. The solution can be found in some very beneficial developments by Biotec Foods. Here we have developed IsoSproutPlex. A highly concentrated blend of 'Live' whole food sprouts which are enzyme rich and have been shown to enhance the body's own production of Glutathione Peroxidase and other beneficial antioxidant enzymes.

    SUGGESTED USAGE - We recommend starting with 6 to 8 tablets per day upon arising. Take with water on an empty stomach at least onne halve hour before breakfast. After a favorable response is achieved, you can maintain the same results with 2 to 4 tablets per day. Water is important; drink at least 8 glasses per day.

    Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. It is necessary for the successful maintenance of healthy cartilage, tendons, ligament and skin. As we age, we lose this necessary protein. This loss can lead to joint degeneration, synovial (joint) fluid loss and dramatic skin changes. To maintain the vitality of these tissues the body needs the correct nutritional "raw materials" to keep it going.

Scientists reveal that after 30 years of age the body starts reducing collagen production at the rate of 1.5 percent per annum. When you are 40 years old, your body has lost 15 percent of collagen, and when you are 50 your body has already lost 30 percent of collagen, and so on. As you get older, age sets in and your skin becomes older and wrinkled, tissue becomes weak and the aging process is accelerated. The good news is that now we can prevent, repair, and renew body damages, by supplying the body with collagen on a daily basis. Boosts natural collagen. Promotes cell renewal, for firmer, younger looking skin. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Improves skin elasticity to restore a youthful appearance.

Increases energy, stamina and strength. Promotes healthy joints, cartilage, and bone density. Burns fat faster, reduces body weight to reshape body profile.
