*Clinical evidence of collagen’s reduction of age-related fine lines by 19%
*Collagen is essential in the growth, development, and regeneration of connective tissue and helps support skin, bones, and cartilage
*Collagen helps thicken hair and strengthen nails
Silica exists in a variety of forms in nature and its component, silicon is the second most prevalent element after oxygen. Orthosilicic acid, a water-soluble form of silicic acid found in very dilute concentration in the earth’s waters, is the form humans predominantly absorb and is found in the serum fraction of blood. In its non-polymerized form, silicon is very unstable; thus making it available for supplementation has been difficult. However, Collagen Renews’ patented processing prohibits silica from turning into a polymer as silica does in other supplements (i.e. gels, horsetail herb), rendering superior absorption. Choline, a nutrient especially important to membrane health, is combined with elemental silicon to yield the stabilized form of silica in Collagen Renew. Includes Biotin.
A study demonstrated a 12.5% increase in collagen in the dermis with ch-OSA supplementation. Silica supplementation stimulates collage type-1 synthesis in osteoblasts, enhances osteoblast differentiation, increases calcium uptake and is a major determinant in bone mineral density in men and pre-menopausal women. In addition to collagen, silica has a role in the synthesis of two other beauty proteins – elastin and keratin. Silica deficiency may cause bone and joint deformities and disrupt mineral balance.
