    The basics

    The skin booster is a potent blend of Fish Type I hydrolysed marine collagen, which provides the necessary amino acids for skin health. This is further bolstered by the inclusion of Vitamin C, critical for collagen synthesis, and Vitamin E, the skin's primary antioxidant. Additional ingredients like hyaluronic acid ensure optimal skin hydration.

    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.

    Vitamin E acts as the skin's primary defense against free radicals. These radicals, caused by UV radiation, pollution, and other environmental factors, can accelerate the ageing process by inducing MMPs. Vitamin E neutralizes these free radicals, indirectly supporting the anti-MMP action of collagen peptides.

    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?

    Add 1 level scoop (included) of powder to 250ml of water or juice, or add to a smoothie or sprinkle on your breakfast. Shaken not stirred will help it dissolve more easily.

    TOP TIP: If you are adding to water add a small amount of water to the powder, stir and turn into a paste before adding more liquid.
