Collagen – nature’s best defense for anti-aging. 

Collagen plays a critical role in skin health. As we age collagen production naturally declines by about 1 percent a year starting in our early 20s and women in menopause are especially susceptible to collagen deficiency. Research shows that women lose as much as 30 percent of their skin collagen in the five years following menopause and that skin elasticity declines 0.55 percent per year after menopause. It’s the loss of collagen that causes sagging skin and wrinkles.

Women spend billions of dollars on treatments such as skin fillers, laser and Botox. More so than any expensive treatment, however, it is possible to support beautiful skin and collagen production by choosing nutrients that provide the body with the necessary building blocks such as silicic acid and biotin. 

What to expect from this product:

  • Reduces the depth of deep wrinkles
  • Lifts and tones sagging areas
  • Increases skin moisture
  • Protects against free radical sun damage to skin
  • Works fast with excellent clinical research
  • Improves hair thickness
  • Improves bone mineral density and joint disease
  • Stops brittle nails
  • Enhances collagen and elastin in 28 days

    The Silicon/Collagen Connection:

    Silicon is a trace mineral required by the body to make collagen. Specifically, silicon is converted into silicic acid that the body requires to manufacture collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, silicon from food, herbs and colloidal (gel) silica supplements is poorly absorbed, resulting in a lack of the building blocks required to make collagen. Collagen Plus contains silicic acid, which is directly used to make collagen. Within two to three months, you will notice an improvement in the smoothness of your skin and in the strength of your hair and nails.

    The "Plus" in Collagen Plus Is Biotin:

    Like silicic acid, biotin is important for healthy hair, skin, nails and bones. Food sources of biotin include nuts, egg yolk, wheat bran, oat, barley, liver and brewer's yeast. However, the therapeutic amount of biotin required for healthy hair and nails exceeds that found in the typical diet. Topical biotin, often added to hair care products, is not as effective as biotin in capsule form. Supplemental biotin has been found to increase nail thickness and reduce splitting. Collagen Plus contains 50 micrograms of biotin per recommended daily dose. 

    Each capsule contains:

    Marine collagen and elastin (as Collactive); standardized to 85% collagen and 5% elastin - 500 mg
