About The Supplement
The overall appearance of our skin, hair & our nails reflects our general health in so many ways and is very much linked to our daily nutrition, which is responsible for their continual nourishment and growth. We also know factually that the vast majority of over 50s are failing to reach the recommended intake for many nutrients which are responsible for healthy skin, hair & nails.
Beautiful skin on the outside requires a healthy foundation within and much of this internal structure is dependent on collagen, which is the most abundant protein found in the body. These collagen fibres also provide further structure and firmness in combination with another skin protein called elastin which helps maintains skin elasticity.
As we age, however, both our collagen and elastin levels within the dermis layer of the skin decrease, giving rise to a less supple and plump skin which in turn promotes wrinkling.
Collagen itself is poorly absorbed due to its large molecule size, so a special bio-available grade of ‘hydrolysed’ collagen is used to significantly enhance absorption and therefore utilisation in the body. These are called ‘peptides’. Hydrolysed collagen peptides have been researched over many years with a large number of studies demonstrating significant skin appearance benefits such as wrinkle reduction and generally enhanced skin plumpness.
Our skin in particular is also under daily attack from sunlight and UV damage, both within the epidermis and deeper down within the dermis itself, promoting harmful oxidation via free radicals which are well known to damage the integrity and mechanical nature of the skin cells. Anti-oxidant nutrients including vitamin C and E, working in combination, are known to play a protective role in skin and other tissues by inhibiting this damaging free radical oxidative attack. Many high calibre scientific studies continue to show clearly that nutrition plays a fundamental role in the overall health and appearance of skin. A number of essential micronutrients, including the well known ‘Retinol’, have been clearly identified in research, as playing a major role in the maintenance of healthy looking skin as explained overleaf. Hair and nails being a part of an overall beauty care regime, will also benefit from a healthy diet, rich in certain micronutrients. Many studies show the benefits of some essential micronutrients such as zinc and selenium and further studies on sulphur containing nutrients, such as MSM and cysteine continue to show promise in trials, due to their high sulphur content. Read over to see how Prime Fifty’s Beauty from Inner Health can contribute to and maintain healthy good looking skin, hair and nails as part of a daily beauty regime.
Behind the formula
The benefits of Beauty From Inner Health with Collagen
The Prime Fifty formula has been formulated to nourish and protect your skin, hair & nails from within, using its advanced age-specific multi-nutrient formulation, comprising high strength collagen peptides, the most essential vitamins, minerals, natural extracts and other scientifically researched ingredients.
A highly absorbable, high strength, bio-available form of hydrolysed collagen peptides, researched over decades as a front line skin health nutrient. Collagen is known to be a key structural protein, together with elastin, which maintains dermal structure and firmness.
Natural sources of -Linolenic and Linoleic polyunsaturated fatty acids, protecting the skin against excess trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). Fatty acids like these play a key role in inhibiting water loss and also metabolising into anti-inflammatory mediators.
Supporting skin health, by contributing to normal collagen formation for the healthy function of skin. Vitamin C also protects skin cells against ‘oxidative stress’ which includes oxidative attack by sunlight.
Contributing to the maintenance of connective tissues, such as collagen/elastin in the skin. These connective tissues are known to promote structure and firmness to the skin.
Supporting the maintenance of healthy hair and also healthy skin.
Both these essential vitamins support cell division, while folic acid itself contributes to amino acid synthesis. Collagen contains 19 such amino acids as bio-building blocks.
Supporting the regulation of hormonal activity.
Supporting a number of additional age relevant health areas such as fighting fatigue and general immunity.
Each box contains 14 sachets of citrus flavoured high collagen gel with micronutrient blend.
Tear of the tip of the sachet and squeeze directly into your mouth.
