Creams, masks and serums are cosmetic products that we know well and that we gladly accumulate on our bedside tables and on top of bathroom counters, but in recent years, a new generation of cosmetics has emerged - nutricosmetics.
Nutricosmetics are nutritional supplements for oral use that contain targeted nutrients that have a preventative or therapeutic effect on the appearance of skin, hair, or nails. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is a major component of skin, bone and connective tissue. Collagen is a protein that gives skin structure, support and is key to maintaining firm and supple skin. Collagen slows down the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity and helps retain moisture. The good news is that we naturally produce collagen. The bad news is that the older we get, the less we produce it.
With aging, the body gradually loses its ability to synthesize collagen. The biggest negative effects on collagen production are exposure to UV radiation and environmental stress, such as smoking and pollution. Typically, the decline in collagen production starts in the twenties and drops by about one percent each year. The first signs of decreased collagen production and loss are evident on the skin, such as wrinkles and wrinkles, grayscale and reduced skin elasticity. The epidermis (outer and upper layers of the skin) is targeted by topical agents, but often a synergy of several different products is required to produce visible results.
That's why Asian beauty rituals have been based on nutrition for centuries and the most famous ingredient in nutrition is collagen. It was always important for the Japanese to look fresh, clean and well-groomed. It is their omotenashi (hospitality) - to appreciate the presence of others. So women across Asia cook beef and chicken tendons to make their own potion to strengthen the skin, because - unlike creams that act solely on the epidermis (outer layer of skin) - the ingredients internally affect the deeper layers of the skin. However, today there is no need to cook tendons anymore because collagen comes in the form of fillers or pills, but it is also consumed as a drink, making it much easier to consume.
Mikeda® Active Collagen 5000 delivers essential micronutrients in liquid form that help restore and increase the amount of collagen in your skin. The peptan® hydrolyzed collagen contained in Mikeda® Active Collagen 5000 is a rich source of peptides that stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen. As the amount of collagen in the skin increases, there is an increase in the thickness of the skin and thus a noticeable reduction in wrinkles and wrinkles. Unique collagen peptides also increase hyaluronic acid production resulting in increased skin moisture. This dual effect makes the Mikeda® Active Collagen 5000 a highly effective skin beauty formula.
In addition to hydrolyzed collagen, Mikeda® Active Collagen 5000 contains the Beauty Shield Complex with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B3 and is a source of vitamins and minerals for health, normal function and skin beauty. Vitamins B2 and B3 along with zinc contribute to maintaining healthy skin. The indispensable vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen in the skin, and with vitamins B2 and E, zinc contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. "Almighty" zinc, in addition to all the above roles, also contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and nails.
You can see the first results after a week of regular collagen use. Small doses of liquid collagen are drunk daily for at least a month to achieve the best results. Avoid combining caffeine and collagen as this reduces its effectiveness.
