    The Science

    Collagen peptides are renowned for their rich amino acid profile, vital for maintaining the integrity of the skin. The central mechanism by which these peptides benefit the skin involves their interaction with the MMP1 enzyme, or matrix metalloproteinase-1.

    Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a group of enzymes responsible for the degradation of extracellular matrix components, including collagen. As we age, the balance between the production of collagen and its breakdown by MMPs can be disrupted. Increased MMP activity, particularly MMP1, leads to enhanced collagen degradation, a process that manifests visibly as wrinkles, reduced elasticity, and other signs of skin ageing.

    Collagen peptides appear to inhibit MMP1 activity through a two-fold mechanism. Firstly, these peptides, once ingested, can act as messengers, signaling skin cells (fibroblasts) to boost their collagen synthesis. This increased production can counterbalance the collagen breakdown occurring due to MMPs.

    Secondly, there's evidence suggesting that certain collagen peptides might directly inhibit MMP1 activity, thereby preventing excessive collagen degradation. By curbing the excessive action of MMPs, collagen peptides ensure that the skin retains its firmness and structure, delaying the visible signs of ageing.

    How will I know its working?

    Upon regular and consistent use, one might notice improved skin elasticity, enhanced hydration, a reduction in fine lines, and better joint flexibility and comfort.

    When to take it?
