Collagen replenishment and your well-being

When it comes to skincare, most people are familiar with collagen and its cosmetic benefits.  It’s the most integral part of our skin’s fabric, providing it with strength, firmness and the glow of youth.  But as we age the body’s natural supply of collagen decreases, and the skin’s connective tissue, composed mostly of collagen, degenerates, leaving us with fine lines, wrinkles, saggy skin and droopy eyelids.  Thinner, duller, less vibrant skin is what we can expect as collagen declines.
However, studies support a role for collagen supplements in maintaining a youthful appearance as well as healthy joints, healthier and shinier hair, stronger nails and a better sleep pattern.  Moreover, a leading collagen supplement formulated here in New Zealand has been proven to help turn back the clock on collagen decline and improve overall wellbeing.
How does it work?  First let’s look at the aging process. Science confirms that as we age, skin effectively loses its flexibility due to the loss of collagen and elastin.  Young skin stretches and bounces back, but older, thinner skin loses this ability. That results in sagging. Gravity takes over and pulls the skin down, and the sagging contributes to wrinkles.
Other factors also determine the rate at which we lose collagen, in particular, exposure to the environment. Collagen is broken down daily by the sun and free-radical damage. UV radiation weakens collagen fibres and alters the cellular renewal cycle. It also causes free radicals to damage the DNA, which can lead to cancer. Pigment changes may also occur, with the development of age spots and uneven skin tone. Smoking and stress contribute to the breakdown of collagen too and impair the body’s healing capacity.
Boosting your body’s natural levels of collagen can contribute to a more youthful appearance by plumping fine lines. In addition, it can improve the strength and texture of hair, contribute to stronger nails and boost energy levels.
Robin Hall from the Hibiscus Coast is testament to that. She recently noticed a decline in her skin’s health and decided to take action. As a hairdresser she wanted to put her best face forward and find a solution to her dull, dry skin.  After seeing Puraz 100% Collagen capsules on TV she decided to try the locally formulated product.
Puraz Health, a New Zealand company, offers an advanced formulation that targets the skin’s inner layer, providing the optimum dose of collagen our bodies need for restoration.  The capsules are absorbed whole in the small intestine so the collagen is not broken down and lost before it has a chance to be of benefit.
The results of the Puraz capsules are backed by good science but more importantly have been proven by the results of women around New Zealand, including a number of high resolution photographic before and after studies on their impact on facial lines and wrinkles.
After taking the collagen supplements, Robin is delighted with the results and emphatically recommends it to others.
“Before taking Puraz my skin was dry and scaly, and it seemed to have rough bits all over the place. I didn’t like it at all.  Now my skin seems to have a lot more moisture and the rough bits seem to have disappeared.  My skin’s a lot smoother than it was before.”
Robin also noticed other benefits.
“Being a hairdresser, I use my hands a lot. My nails are so much stronger and much more pliable.  And I’m noticing a great difference in my hair. It’s a lot more pliable and not so dry.”
Her overall wellbeing has greatly improved too, with a noticeably positive effect on her health.
“Puraz has made me feel younger, it has made me feel fitter, and I’ve been getting a lot of compliments just lately.”
As confirmed by Robin and thousands of other Kiwi women, research shows that when it comes to good skin, what you put in your body is as important as what you put on it.  Puraz capsules are proven to add collagen to skin fibroblast cells, help activate and rejuvenate those cells and encourage the replacement of lost or damaged elastin.  That means a glowing, radiant complexion, a firmer younger looking skin, softer, glossier hair, stronger nails, increased energy and a feeling of wellbeing.
Imagine all that from a tiny capsule.
