Skin aging is normal and gradual, but aging can be accelerated by hormones, stress from internal and external toxins, inflammation, thyroid conditions, diet, and lifestyle choices.

However, dermatologists estimate that approximately 90% of skin aging is due to sun damage (photoaging). Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) causes skin aging as it increases oxidative stress and the formation of free radicals, which results in inflammation that interferes with the signaling pathways in the skin.
Frustration and discouragement can happen around mid-life when skin aging becomes apparent in the mirror and photos. We all have our tightest fitting skin from birth until the age of 25 when elastin content is optimal. After age 25, elastin gradually declines, and by age 45, we have about one-half of our elastin content compared to age 25, and by age 65, we have less than one-half (4–6%) of the elastin content we had at age 25.

Structural Proteins: Elastin, Keratin, and Collagen

Our skin, connective tissue, and anchoring structures contain a secret weapon called elastin. These little-talked-about, but powerful fibers give strength, tone, stretch, and “snap back” to your skin, connective tissue, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Collagen works with elastin to help repair damaged tissues and restore structure, providing stretch and resilience that collagen alone can’t provide.

Keratin is a fibrous structural protein and is the majority of your skin’s protein. It is a protective protein that makes up hair, skin, and nails, playing an essential role in the outermost layer of human skin.

It may seem like wrinkles and other signs of photoaging suddenly appear overnight, but the cellular damage takes place for years beneath the skin’s surface. Don’t wait until outer signs of photoaging appear. Antioxidants and other nutritional supplements are essential to help counteract these degenerative skin changes.

Studies have shown that these antioxidants are decreased by 26–93% in all UV-exposed skin layers. Many studies have also shown that prior antioxidant treatment could prevent skin damage from UVR.

Grapeseed Extract

Contains several plant compounds with powerful antioxidants that protect cells from unstable molecules that damage healthy cells in the skin and body. Grapeseed has been shown to protect the skin from sun damage, bond with collagen, and promote youthful skin, healthy cells, elasticity, and flexibility.

Vitamin C

Supports collagen and elastin production and provides antioxidant protection against UV damage and skin aging. Normal skin contains high concentrations of vitamin C. Studies show that excessive exposure to environmental pollutants depletes vitamin C in the skin’s outer layer. Vitamin C is also a cofactor with lysine to promote collagen synthesis.

NEW Total Body Collagen™ combines hydrolyzed collagen with hyaluronic acid, biotin, vitamin C, L-glutamine, and L-tryptophan to support radiant skin, healthy hair, strong nails, and flexible connective tissue. One to two scoops per day will also promote joint comfort and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
