Let’s find out what role each ingredient plays in the partnership.
The Natural Skin Benefits of Collagen
As we age, cells start slowly losing their ability to repair DNA. But the attacks on cells from pollution in the environment, toxins, and sunlight are unrelenting as always. A combination of eating healthy foods, exercising, and drinking a lot of water, plus using sunscreen, can help us keep our skin healthy and glowing. It can slow down the aging of cells to an extent.
Using USANA Incelligence Technology as part of your health regime will help support aging cells. InCelligence is a breakthrough nutritional technology designed to counter free radical damage and improve overall cell health. USANA’s InCelligence Technology has been integrated into some of their Celavive Skincare Products and USANA Nutritional Products. Read more below
Back to Collagen – recent research also shows that collagen peptides can help prevent aging that is otherwise caused by UV rays.
Here’s how the sun harms your skin. When the sun’s rays hit your skin, the UV component reacts with oxygen in the air and sets off a free radical reaction on your skin’s surface. These free radicals are damaging to cells.
When there’s too much exposure, such as when you get a nice tan or hang out at the beach for a while without sunscreen, as we do when we’re young, the sun which produces free-radical damage continues to cause cell death. The impact of these toxins is called oxidative stress. Antioxidants work to protect against oxidative stress.
Research has found that something called antioxidant collagen peptides (ACP) can shield against the sun. There has been some talk of the antioxidant benefits of the polyphenols in tea and casein peptides. It seems that ACPs are even better at shielding against UV than these.
What Is The Best Collagen Drink?
There are many ways to take collagen but not all collagen is created equal. Collagen is already present in the body and it’s a type of protein that forms the structure of your skin and other connective tissues.
You’ll find collagen on the skin, in muscles, in tendons and ligaments, and in bones. It’s fibrous and gives the parts of the body their strength and their shape. Given that Collagen is present in almost all parts of the connective tissue and body – scientifically, it makes sense to consume USANA Advanced Collagen Drink.
It is absorbed and used by the body at the same absorbent rate as water.
It’s misleading to think of collagen as one type of organic protein. There are various types present in the human body too. However:
- 90% is Type I Collagen.
- Wherever you find cartilage, it’s the work of Type II Collagen.
Similarly, there are other types too.
The type of collagen in the Advanced Collagen beverage is bovine, a safe and traditional source of hair, teeth, and skin-boosting supplements. Biotin, a vitamin B7, helps metabolize amino acids from food that the body needs to build keratin. Keratin protects your skin cells from damage too.
It’s well-known in the beauty industry that collagen has anti-wrinkle benefits when applied topically. But in general, oral supplements against skin aging have a history of not working well. This is because the enzymes and acids in the gut break down the beneficial ingredients in oral compounds.
But studies have found that the same can’t be said of collagen. Collagen supplement drinks with hydrolyzed collagen and other anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid and essential vitamins and minerals can reduce wrinkle depth.
In other words, it can tighten your skin. Let’s take a look at the other ingredients that partner with collagen in USANA Advanced Collagen.
How Vitamin C Supports the Work of Collagen
Recent studies show Vitamin C helps the body to generate collagen. This is why it’s often recommended to athletes recovering from injuries, though that’s not the only reason Vitamin C is good for athletes. It has antioxidant properties and can help to reverse some of the oxidative stress that happens during exercise.
Vitamin C also acts as a barrier against UV-induced skin damage. You probably get your daily recommended dose of vitamin C from your food. But in case you don’t, the makers of USANA Advanced Collagen have added a dose of it to the drink mix.
How Hyaluronic Acid Works
Another essential helper ingredient you’ve probably heard of before in anti-aging products is hyaluronic acid. This is a polysaccharide molecule, a necessary component of connective tissue. If you were to look through a microscope, you’d see a protective gelatinous cloud around each cell. That’s hyaluronic acid, responsible for making baby skin plump and springy.
This ingredient has the effect of moisturizing your skin on application. It makes dry skin look healthier. It helps to speed up wound healing and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Taking hyaluronic acid orally can be quite effective in getting the most out of its skin benefits.
