A. Collagen accounts for up to 30% of the protein in the human body. Beneath the skin’s surface fibroblasts produce collagen, the triple helix structural protein which is responsible for binding the cells together. It makes up 75 – 80% of the skin, and it’s one of the skin’s primary components.
A. The appearance of your skin is directly related to the way your skin is supported. Wrinkles form when the natural collagen and hyaluronic acid in your skin diminish during the natural ageing process. Ageing is caused by both internal and external ageing factors. After the age of 25, the body starts to deplete collagen at a rate of 1.5% every year. This process continues to speed up into your 30’s and 40’s with a rapid depletion of collagen from 50+ years; this can result in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity. External ageing factors such as sun exposure account for up to 90% of skin damage. The sun causes DNA damage and breaks down the collagen. Other external factors that cause ageing are environment, temperature, gravity, repetitive facial movements and lifestyle.
A. A collagen supplement can help counteract the effects of collagen depletion by stimulating fibroblast activity to produce new collagen.
A. Purelogicol’s Collagen Peptide Skin Supplement has been subjected to rigorous clinical testing. A double-blind placebo controlled 6 weeks study demonstrated an improvement in skin wrinkle scores and skin moisture content as well as skin porosity compared to the placebo group. The clinical trials were carried out by Dr Riekie Smit; University of Pretoria, Department of Pharmacology Promoter: Prof JR Snyman. (Published SADR VOLUME 9 No.3 2009). Read the report of the clinical trial.
A. Collagen Peptides are low-molecular, bioavailable collagen which are broken down by the body into small collagen peptides. Around 15% absorb in their intact form; the rest are broken down into amino acids which also assist in the production of collagen. The absorbable short-chained collagen peptides stimulate fibroblast activity to produce collagen and proteoglycans which are major components of the skin.
A. Purelogicol's supplement contains a pure, high quality collagen. It has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, decrease pores and increase skin moisture. The product’s unique enzymatic process breaks down the collagen molecules which are bioavalable (meaning they are readily absorbed by the body). Purelogicol is blister packed to pharmaceutical standards to ensure safety and product freshness.
A. There are no known side effects or contraindications.
A. Yes, you can increase the dosage to 6 capsules per day. Increasing the dosage further may not offer added benefits.
A. Purelogicol is a progressive program and results will vary from person to person. Users have reported beneficial results within the first 4 weeks. This depends on the individual’s age, weight and metabolic rate. For optimum results, use for three months. To maintain on-going benefits, continue at the same dosage.
A. You can break open the capsules and pour into water or orange juice, stir until dissolved.
