Clinical evidence of collagenâ€™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 earthâ€™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 Renewsâ€™ 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 â€œbeauty proteinsâ€� â€“ elastin and keratin. Silica deficiency may cause bone and joint deformities and disrupt mineral balance.
