CollagenXG+® contains a shiitake mushroom extract that thwarts collagen deterioration and improves the organization, quality, and structure of collagen, all of which are linked to a firmer and smoother complexion
The amount of collagen in our skin decreases, as we age, and enzymes such as matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) increase. This leads to signs of aging, such as reduction of firmness or roughness. Collagen acts as a strong anti-oxidant that lessens damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as lipid peroxidation. It assists with type I collagen synthesis and increases PLOD1 levels, which adds to protein quality while reducing carbamylation.
It also reduces degradation of collagen by MMPs and glycation, the bonding of sugar molecules to protein.
19 female volunteers (41-55 years old) applied CollagenXG+® twice daily for 56 days
Volunteers reported improvement of firmness and a reduction of neck folds, along with a smoother appearance of the décolleté, neck, and face, and a decrease in the appearance of roughness. Also noted was an improvement in skin recovery after distension, a quality associated with younger skin, which means the skin bounces back quickly
In vitro research has shown that synthesis of type I collagen increased by 36.5% with 1% Collagen+ An increase of 21.9% PLOD1 with 3% CollagenXG+®
2% CollagenXG+® reduced carbamylation by 75.9%, would could lead to less deterioration and improved organization of collagen
