- 4 Collagen Elixir – Wild Berry – 10 bottles
Since the time Cleopatra ruled over her Egyptian dynasty 2000 years ago, women have been consuming or applying concoctions to stave off the aging process and beautify their appearance. Fast forward to the current day and skin-conscious women now have a myriad of skin-supportive ingredients – few as “hot” as collagen and collagen peptides.
Collagen makes up approximately one-third of the total protein in the human body and is among the popular “cosmeceuticals” (orally consumed ingredients with skin health benefits) in the marketplace. Indeed, there are hundreds of collagen products available. Now, with Isagenix’s Collagen Elixir, Isagenix has created a highly unique, great-tasting beauty shot providing 5 grams of collagen and collagen peptides derived from wild-caught, deep-sea fishes. This elixir is the perfect way to incorporate the skin-glowing benefits of collagen into your diet while choosing collagen that is scientifically based, manufactured in a carbon-neutral facility, and transported in oxidation-resistant, 100% recyclable glass bottles. And, it’s perfect on a Shake Day or Cleanse Day.
The elixir also contains additional complementary skin-supportive nutrients such as vitamin C, zinc, biotin, and an herbal blend including goji, acerola berry, and aloe vera. These nutrients complement the skin benefits of collagen while providing antioxidant support and an herbal, berry taste.
Collagen for Skin
The benefits of collagen for skin health are well known. The most abundant type of collagen in the skin is Type 1 collagen, which makes up about 80% of the collagen in the skin’s dermal layer (deep layer of skin just below the outermost layer known as the epidermis). While studies in males have been fewer, some studies – including men as subjects – have noted clinical and biochemical improvements to their skin. For example, one study reported a dietary supplement containing 5 grams of collagen peptides consumed daily for 60 days and up to 12 weeks resulted in a reduction in skin dryness and the appearance of wrinkles while significantly increasing collagen density and skin firmness. The authors did not report the precise number of males in the study, and the supplement also contained additional skin-supportive nutrients. Similarly, a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled 2017 study by Genovese et al. reported that 90 days of daily consumption of a two-ounce shot containing 5 grams of collagen peptides, combined with other skin supportive nutrients significantly increased skin elasticity and improved texture. While the overall benefits were observed with the collagen product, only three men were among the subjects.
Collagen for Joint Support
The Type 1 marine collagen found in Collagen Elixir has also been investigated in joint health. Using MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) techniques, McAlidon et al. observed improved cartilage in six males who consumed 10 grams of marine collagen for 6-12 months.
