The structure of commercial collagen differs from the collagens found naturally in human skin. The huge size of the molecules in this form of collagen prevents the body from absorbing them, so they remain on the surface. After use, allergic or inflammatory reactions may happen in more severe situations.
In fact, collagen cannot be increased by drinking or eating foods produced from animals. Similar to proteins, these collagens will be broken down after ingestion and won’t be as helpful as they may be.
Consuming plant foods high in antioxidants that the skin can completely absorb can help to increase the body’s production of collagen, reinforce the collagen matrix and preserve the skin’s suppleness.
Collagen is a type of structural protein which makes up 30% of the total protein in the entire body. It is the building block of the skin, tendons, bones, connective tissues, cartilage and their main role is to provide support, structure and strength. As you age, collagen breakdown increases and your body doesn’t produce enough collagen to compensate for that. Other factors such as stress, pressure and environmental factors accelerate the breakdown of collagen too.
There several kinds of collagens and where they’re found in the body:
Type 1 – makes up 90% of the body and found in skin & bones
Type 2 – elastic cartilage (joint support)
Type 3 – muscles, arteries & organs
Type 4 – between layers of your skin (basal layer, stratum spinosum, stratum granulosum, stratum lucidum and stratum corneum)
Type 5 – cornea of eyes, hair & tissue of placenta
It is recommended to consume plant-based foods rich in antioxidants so that they can be absorbed into the skin. This will in turn help the body to stimulate enough collagen to maintain the support and strength needed by us. Consider consuming Rosytime which contains several antioxidants (rose, cactus fruit, acerola cherry, cranberry) that can stimulate Type 1 collagen production, reduce damage by the harmful rays to reduce the chances of dark spots on your beautiful face and protect against free radicals.
RosyTime is rich of Antioxidants that may encourage Collagen production, reduce damage by harmful UV Rays and protect against Free Radical damage.
The main ingredients in Rosytime include:
