Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein, Sugar Free, $29.95

Pic-Rasp-Collagen.jpgImportance of the Dermis & Where Protein Collagen is found beneath the epidermis lies a much thicker skin layer, the dermis. The dermis can be as much as 3000 micrometers thick. The dermis is composed largely of the protein collagen. Most of the collagen is organized in bundles running horizontally through the dermis, which are buried in a jelly-like material called the ground substance. Collagen accounts for up to 75% of the weight of the dermis, and is responsible for the resilience and elasticity of the skin.

The collagen bundles are held together by elastic fibres running through the dermis. These are made of a protein called, “elastin”, which makes up 4.2% of the weight of the dermis. Despite their name, they are not involved in the natural elasticity of the skin.

As skin gets older, it loses some of its elasticity and ability to retain water. Collagen production declines as does subcutaneous fat and the facial muscles start to atrophy (massed collagen and elastin fibres in the dermis). Both collagen and elastin fibres are made by cells called fibroblasts, which are scattered through the dermis.

Special substances in the ground substance, called glycoproteins, can hold large amounts of water, and is responsible for maintaining a mass of water in the dermis.

There exist 21 types of collagen in the human body from which 5 main groups constitute the following living tissues: bone, tendons, ligaments, skin, cartilages, eye structures (cornea, vitreous body), skeletal muscles, blood vessel walls, liver, lungs, kidneys, cells surface, hair, placenta and numerous internal organs. Collagen is like a rope made of three strands. These three strands are tightly bonded and the human digestive process is almost incapable of separating them, therefore cannot obtain the amino acids in their structure. Each strand is made of a combination of amino acids depending on the structure where it is located in the body and the firmness needed. But 3 specific amino acids are widely present in the sequences of each of these strands composing the collagen: a third glycine, a third proline, and hydroxyproline or hydroxylyine.

In conclusion, it is not the type of Collagen itself that is most important but the amino acid chain that constitutes collagen that allows it to be efficient once ingested. This is the advantage of a Collagen Hydrolysat supplement of bovine (beef-hides) source. Also, taking Hydrolyzed Collagen is best, because the process of hydrolyzing is separating and partitioning the strands so that digestion can finalize and maximize the process and obtain the amino acids so they may be absorbed through the intestinal wall into the blood stream.

Facts:

  • Collagen makes up 75% of the dermis; represents 90% of cutaneous volume; collagen is the largest and most abundant protein in the body, making up about 65% of a human’s total protein.
  • Skin starts to lose its elasticity, or collagen, at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. Translated – by the age of 65, 60% of your skin’s thickness will be gone.
  • Collagen is not found in non-meat food.
  • Collagen holds the skin together. It is the most abundant structural protein in the human body: 60% of the body is made of connective tissue and collagen makes up 80% of connective tissue.
  • Collagen acts as the skin’s support structure. Repeated facial movements and aging gradually weaken the collagen framework.
  • Collagen acts within the body.
  • Collagen is the connective tissue for almost all our structures, including heart, lungs, arteries, discs, blood cells, skin, muscles, bones, cartilage, liver, all other organs, hair, joints, nails and prostate.
  • As we age, collagen production drops way off, and any of these systems can be affected. Most common example of collagen decrease: the floor-ward tendency of our skin and muscles as we age, which doctors call “ptosis”.
  • Sucralose has no effect on glycemia, nor on insulin secretion, thus the liquid.
  • Collagen may be used by insulin dependent diabetics.

Characteristics:

  • Easy on the liver (because it’s pre-digested).
  • Protects cells and helps the body build new cellular structure after an injury.
  • Provides the necessary support for cells so they can reproduce and create new tissue. Fractured bones regenerate; wounds heal more quickly; new blood vessels are formed to nourish tissues being repaired.
  • Provides amino acids that maintain and boost energy and enhances a diet’s calorific value.
  • May reduce appetite if taken before meals.
  • Significantly reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and improves skin’s elasticity, and brightens skin tone.
  • Reduces and even eliminates Rosacea.
  • Skin texture becomes firmer if collagen is taken on a regular, daily basis for at least 90 days (time needed for cell renewal). The body rejuvenates itself more quickly when provided with the collage it needs to increase muscle mass, which is synonymous with youthfulness.
  • Skin looks healthy and radiant. Collagen nourishes the skin and has cumulative effects.
  • Helps to restore skin’s natural collagen and protects the skin against pollutants due to free radical activity. Connective tissue is regenerated.
  • Reduces pain from rheumatoid arthritis and reduces cellulite.

Indications:

Obesity, Cellulite, Overweight, Rosacea, Convalescence, Arthritis, Skin revitalization.

KCalories 38/30 ml (116/100g); Kilojoules: 158/30 ml (484/100 g); 30 ml is the equivalent of 2 tablespoons; 1 Bottle 500 ml = 16.5 days @ 2 Tbsp.(30ml)/Day; and 60 ml equals 18 g Protein;

Another reason for skin aging is that collagen and elastin production declines as the years go by, particularly after the menopause, so that some of the skin’s natural properties are lost.

Medicinal Ingredients: Each tablespoon (15 ml) contains Hydrolyzed collagen (bovine source – beef hides) 4.5 g. Hydrolyzed collagen protein, a pre-digested protein, comprised of connective tissue that contains most of the amino acids that make up natural proteins.

Directions: How to use for collagen metabolism:

For skin revitalization it works best if taken at bedtime provided you do not have a sensitive stomach, take 2 tablespoons (30 ml) for a maintenance dose with 8 oz. (250 ml) of water or milk.

If you are going into surgery and your skin will be cut, it is recommended that you continue taking the 4 tablespoons a day (2 in the morning and 2 at bedtime) leading up to the hospital check-in date and upon being discharged from the hospital increase the dosage to 6 tablespoons per day (two – one ounce shot glasses or 90 ml) for 2 weeks or until the scabbing falls off and then return to a maintenance dose of 2 tablespoon per day at bedtime. Feel free to dilute into cold or room temperature water/milk or taken directly from the bottle. Ensure the bottle is kept refrigerated upon opening. This is a non-sugar added formulation, safe for both dieters and diabetics or other individuals looking to increase their Collagen intake.

In comparison 254-325 calories of chicken meat would contain approximately 18 g of protein which is the equivalent of 4 tablespoons (60 ml) of Hydrolyzed Collagen. Can also be used as a food substitute. Consult with a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you have liver or kidney disease or if you have been instructed to follow a low protein diet. May cause mild gastrointestinal disturbances. Do not use as a single source of protein.

Skin Rebuilding – Clinical Studies

As we age, collagen production drops off and skin sags because it gets thinner, weaker, drier, and less resilient, or pliable. This deterioration is directly linked to amino acid content. Specific amino acids in the skin’s structure, like glycine, proline, hydro-proline, and alanine – decrease with age and bad diet.

Since Hydrolyzed Collagen contains most essential amino acids, it is not surprising then that third party clinical studies have clearly demonstrated significant skin improvement by taking it daily.

A 2008 study in Tokyo of 33 women ages 40-60 who took 10 g of Hydrolyzed Collagen daily for 2 months showed a 91% increase in skin hydration and resilience.

A Dermiscan study in Lyon France in 2008, showed similar findings in an age group of 35-55: an increase in skin smoothness and hydration, using the new Corneometer and Skin Image Analyzer technologies. After 12 weeks of 10g Hydrolyzed Collagen daily, 41% less furrowing, less wrinkles, more resilient, more hydrated. Skin resilience was measured by the C&Z Cutometer, which is objective and state of the art.

Other scientists have shown exactly how the new collagen is rebuilt, not only in the skin, but in bones and ligaments. Metabolites of Hydrolyzed Collagen build bone, skin and ligaments by attracting fibroblasts. This is how they trigger the synthesis of new collagen. (Posstlethwaite)

Hydrolyzed Collagen also increases the diameter of collagen fibrils in the dermis by the same mechanism: fibroblast stimulation. This in turn increases cohesion of the dermal collagen fibers themselves, which is a true anti-aging step. In the skin, this action means increased thickness, suppleness and resilience, as well as hydration.

Hydration, or water content of skin tissue, is proven directly related to overall smoothness and decreased furrowing and wrinkling. (Sumida)

AWARENESS OF COLLAGEN

Global awareness of the value of hydrolyzed collagen is skyrocketing across the world today at more than 10% per year, in several applications. In Japan and China the most popular area of increased awareness of hydrolyzed collagen is in anti-aging cosmetics, specifically for skin rebuilding, and for hair and nails. Japan is already a huge market for hydrolyzed collagen, and their demand is increasing about 3% per year.

In China it’s a newer discovery, and that demand is increasing at a rate close to 100% per year. The effective cosmetic uses of hydrolyzed collagen as employed in Asia are now well documented by many clinical studies.

In Europe, where hydrolyzed collagen is certainly very important for cosmetics, the #1 application is in the area of bone health. Elderly folks, especially women, are acutely aware of the epidemic levels of osteoporosis in their demographic. The unfortunate truth is that most of the standard osteoporosis information, furnished by the pharmaceutical industry to promote drugs and calcium supplements, is incorrect. Many of the drugs, like Fosamax, are not only dangerous, but they actually harm the bones in the long run, making them weaker and more brittle.

But Europeans have known for years that hydrolyzed collagen, as a natural product, can deliver the promised improvement to bone health with none of the documented side effects of drugs. That’s one reason demand for hydrolyzed collagen is increasing at about 5% per year in Europe. In the US and in South America, the demand for hydrolyzed collagen is increasing by about 20% per year, for these same effects: improvements in skin, hair and nails as well as bone re-mineralization.

The increased global demand for hydrolyzed collagen has brought with it some new dangers, of course. Newcomers to the collagen industry, with little experience in processing traditions, seeing the glittering new market, take many production shortcuts, and then focus on making extravagant claims.

Taken long-term, it is practically impossible not to benefit from such a supplement, even if there is some serious underlying pathology. Once the body is provided with usable building blocks for new collagen, often for the first time in years, so many systems can show improvement including: lean muscle gain; muscle tone; skin toning and thickening; joint rebuilding; arterial strengthening; thickening hair and nails; increased energy from musculoskeletal surcharge; organ rebuilding: heart, prostate, lungs, liver, kidneys, blood vessels, etc. Chronic problems that can improve include: osteoporosis; high blood pressure; arthritis in joints; bladder weakness; obesity; chronic fatigue; shallow breathing; autoimmune; situations; skin problems (disappearance of fine lines and spider veins); and splitting nails.

Foods that contain Sulfur:

Sulfur is a mineral found in the ground around volcanic craters and hot springs and occurs naturally in some plants, including grains, fruits and vegetables. Protein foods also contain sulfur, which may put vegetarians at risk for developing a sulfur deficiency. The mineral helps form muscles, hair and skin cells.

Eggs
The yolk portion of an egg is high in sulfur. Separating the white portion of the egg from the yolk before cooking will help reduce the sulfur content in the egg. Cooking the eggs may also help reduce the sulfur levels.

Meat, Legumes and Nuts
Meats including beef, chicken and fish contain sulfur. Legumes, such as beans and jicama also contain protein and sulfur. Nuts such as walnuts, almonds, cashews, as well as certain seeds, such as sesame seeds and sunflower seeds, contain sulfur.

Dairy
Dairy foods contain high amounts of sulfur. The high sulfur foods include milk, cheese and sour cream.

Fruits
Sulfur containing fruits include coconut, bananas, pineapple, tomatoes, avocados and watermelon.

Vegetables
Broccoli and additional vegetables in the same family, including mustard greens, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and watercress contain sulfur. Additional vegetables include kale, asparagus, sweet potatoes, leeks, peas, chives, and cauliflower.

Garlic and Onions
Garlic contains sulfur and may help boost antibiotic and antiviral capabilities of the body. Mincing the garlic and adding it to a variety of foods is an easy way to consume the essential amino acids. Cooking onions may help reduce the sulfur content.

Beverages
Some beverages, such as coffee, tea and cocoa, contain sulfur.

As ADVERTISED! *

Leading up to having three facial moles and two moles on my upper chest removed at Beauty-Full Spa I took 30 ml of the Hydrolyzed Collagen juice in the morning and the same just before bed. I consumed one glass of orange juice and got sulfur from dairy every day. A week later once my moles were removed I increased it to 45 ml in the morning and the same again at bedtime. Wow, wow, totally remarkable. Withing five days ALL my scabs had fallen off. I have continued taking it at only 30 ml each night before bed and my face feels softer and the pain I once had in my knees is gone. I guess it is basically youth in a bottle. Very happy with the mole removal results and seriously if you didn't have before pictures you would have never known that I once had a facial mole. Truly remarkable. They do great work at Beauty-Full Spa. * Results may vary person to person.

Stuff burried my Spider VEINS!

Until recently I was only aware of 2 ways to get rid of facial spider veins. One was IPL and the other injection of a saline solution. Now the easiest and healthiest alternative - back fill with Hydrolyzed Collagen. By replacing my declining collagen, I have basically back-filled over the spider veins and they have disappeared. I know when I stop taking the collagen they will reappear. But this stuff is also food so I am now eating for my body and face. Can you beat that! Paul here at Beauty-Full Spa introduced me to the fountain of youth product six months ago, and now as he does I take a one oz. shot glass every night before bed. Really talk to Paul who looks amazing at 56! *Results may vary person to person.

Great Combo

What can one say when introduced to two products that complment each other. I took the combo of the Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein and Emergen-C to recover faster from a mole removal I received at Beauty-Full Spa. I had purhased 3 bottles, afterall we all want to look younger. Well I have continued to take a maintenance dose and I am actually looking younger. The puffiness has returned and my skin is much softer. My wife has recently become a convert and she has started taking the Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein as it is a true anti-aging product. *Results may vary person to person.

Who would have thought - it really really works!

Read all the information and even spoke to the guy in the pictures at Beauty-Full Spa. I even asked to see his driver's license as I could believe he was 54 and had been a power smoker for more than 15 years. Well I have been consuming the Raspberry flavour for 6 months (2 bottles per month) and can confirm that this is the best product I have ever purchased for long term benefit for my skin. No more acne! This is the only thing that has ever worked for me. Thanks. *Results may vary person to person.

I ship a case every three months to my daughter overseas!

My daughter is white and in Africa so her skin is cooking everyday. She commented one day while we were on line that I was looking much younger and asked what I was doing. I told her, sent her three bottles of Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein and now I ship her 12 bottles every three months. She has noticed that the sun is no longer causing her any significant damage. Thanks Beauty-Full Spa for giving me the education and adding years of beauty to my daughter's lovely face and skin features! *Results may vary person to person.

Almost 80 with the face of a 30 year old.

Of all the facial cosmetics I have purchased in the past they do not hold a candle to what Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein did for me in just 90 days. Beauty-Full Spa did inform me that my skin layers were collagen starved and not to expect anything over night, but I am amazed of the difference in just 90 days. In my late 70's and my facial skin feels to the touch as it did in my late 20's, fantastic. I am a believer and a regular user. *Results may vary person to person.

The most positive thing I have done for my face

Beauty-Full Spa introduced me to the Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein when I was recovering from surgery. They said it would speed up the healing process and reduce the size of my incisions to really fine lines or so they didn't even appear. Well that was 4-yrs ago and I now take two tblsp as day. My face has volume and people have no idea that I am a youthful 66. Wonderful product and it is FOOD! You cannot go wrong with this product. *Results may vary person to person.

The doctors were amazed how fast my wife healed!

My daughter suggested that before my wife went in for some serious chest related surgery that she start taking the liquid collagen that was available at Beauty-Full Spa. As directed she took 2 TBLS per day leading up to her surgery and upon being release from the hospital she upped her intake to 6 TBLS per day. We went in to have the stapples removed 10 days after the surgery and the doctor could not believe how fast the incisions had healed. His comment was that he only saw such healing 5 wks after such serious surgery and suggested that my wife be tested to see why she was so different. Well it will be our little secret. The way in which she is healing she most likely will not have any serious visible lines which is wonderful - thanks goes to my daughter and Beauty-Full Spa for making both this product and knowledge available. My wife will once again be a beautiful as she was when we got married 38 years ago! A thankful husband! *Results may vary person to person.

Tremendous Healing Powers

Finally, a natural food substitute that assist me in repairing my body. I am an outdoor guy and on the weekend max. my body to its fullest potential. Beauty-Full Spa introduced me to the Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein in 2005. At that time it contained natural sugars and since then my brother who is a Diabetic 2 has started to take it as it was reintroduced as sugar free. I cannot say enough about this product and it is an excellent replacement for meat. Check it out. *Results may vary person to person.

Highly recommended

Beauty-Full Spa recommended hydrolyzed collagen protein approximately 2 years ago before I had my breast surgery. Three weeks prior to my surgery I consumed 2 tablespoons of the hydrolyzed collagen protein per day. Upon leaving the hospital I increase the dosage to 3 tablespoons per day for approximately 30 days. The healing was remarkable my incision lines look like thread marks. I told my doctor that I for taking hydrolyzed collagen protein he remarked that he was going to start recommending it to his other other patients. Thank you Beauty-Full Spa for making me feel pretty again. *Results may vary person to person.
