Collagen: The Beauty Protein

Healthy Collagen Diagram

In the body, collagen is the primary ‘structural protein’ however due to its importance to skin we also refer to it as the ‘beauty protein’. In youthful skin collagen is abundant making up 75% of the dermis and is responsible for giving your skin structure, firmness, and elasticity.

Skin Aging:
Collagen decline and damage

Collagen Damage Diagram

Collagen production starts declining in your 20’s. By age 80 collagen production is reduced by 70%!

Age-related decline in collagen production is met with yet another problem. Collagen is constantly under attack by free radicals which damages and weakens the collagen matrix.

The decline in collagen production along with the increase in collagen damage results in significant changes in the skin: fine lines, furrows, roughness, and wrinkles.

Collagen Peptides

Anti-Aging skincare from the inside out.

New research has shown that collagen peptides can stimulate cells to increase collagen production. Topical applications of collagen would appear to be a logical approach however the barrier properties of the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, prevents collagen peptides from reaching the dermal layer, the site of the collagen matrix.

That’s why Bend pioneered anti-aging skin care from the inside out. When consumed orally, collagen peptides are absorbed into the blood stream and reach the dermis where they stimulate production of collagen as well as hyaluronic acid, another important component of the skin’s collagen matrix.

Top 5 benefits of oral collagen peptides

  1. Absorbed and reach the dermis
  2. Stimulate collegen production
  3. Increase hyaluronic acid production
  4. Enhance skin hydration
  5. Decrease visible fine lines and wrinkling

The importance of skin care from the inside out

The skin’s dermis is often referred to as your true skin. It is the site of the collagen and elastin matrix and source of skin firmness, elasticity and overall skin health and longevity.

The dermal layer contains tiny blood vessels which e iciently deliver Marine Collagen + Co-Factors’s active ingredients which help to build and protect the collagen matrix.

Stimulate production of collagen and hyaluronic acid with ingestible collagen peptides

When consumed orally, collagen peptides are absorbed into the blood stream and reach the dermis where they stimulate production of collagen as well as hyaluronic acid, another important component of the skin’s collagen matrix.

Specially formulated with collagen co-factors

Vitamin C and the mineral Silicon are essential co-factors in a process called collagen crosslinking. This process improves collagen strength, function, and makes it more resistant to damage. Additionally, Vitamin C is an important skin antioxidant and Silicon improves the health of hair and nails.

Fish-derived collagen peptides are significantly better absorbed.

Collagen peptides are typically derived from pig and cow hides, largely because they are abundant by-products and cheap to produce. Fish skin derived collagen peptides, although more costly, have been shown to be significantly better absorbed.
