Collagen is sometimes referred to as “the skin’s glue”, helping to give it strength, plumpness, smoothness and elasticity. There are many types of collagen but it is the loss of collagen type 1 that causes havoc with our skin. Once we hit 25, our natural collagen production declines meaning that we are less able to keep our skin young and strong. We get saggier skin and more lines and wrinkles.
Collagen drinks are a big thing right now – they claim to boost your body’s natural production of collagen. However, because of the health benefits associated with more collagen, there has been a boom of collagen drinks on the market. How can we decide what works and what doesn’t?
Most collagen drinks on the market do not have any clinical studies to back up their claims. At the Light Touch Clinic, we do a vast amount of research to ensure that we only offer the best products to our patients. We have specifically chosen Aneva Derma because of the clinical data.
Aneva Derma contains Arthred which is synthesised from animal collagen (bovine). The amino acid composition of the bovine peptides resembles that of the collagen found in human cartilage, resulting in faster absorption and maximised benefits. Its advanced nutritional properties deliver comprehensive anti-ageing benefits from within, stimulating the body’s own production of collagen and elastin which help to restore the look and feel of youthful skin.* It is also very effective for strengthening joints, increasing energy levels and adding vitality to our everyday lives.*
I have been trying Aneva Derma, not only for my skin, but because it was originally designed for athletes. Having always been active, I have picked up a few aches and pains along the way. Arthred has been scientifically proven to rebuild cartilage and collagen. For me, a drink that can improve my skin and my joints has got to be a winner!
If you would like to learn more about collagen drinks, please give me a call and I’d be happy to talk further on one of my favourite subjects!
