“While collagen is imperative to skin structure and elasticity, most collagen supplements are ineffective in improving the skin’s health because it is not bioavailable,” explained Essential Formulas Director of Science Ross Pelton RPh, Ph.D., CCN. “Dr. Ohhira’s exclusive formula combines premium collagen ingredients, a blend of fermented food probiotic extract, amino acids, hand-selected botanicals, and health-promoting nutrients to assist the body’s absorption of collagen.”
Reversing Skin Aging with Collagen Peptides
Numerous studies have reported that low molecular weight collagen peptides increase the body’s healthy new collagen production, stated Dr. Pelton. “This resulted in a noticeable improvement in skin conditions, such as increased moisture and elasticity and decreased roughness and wrinkles.” In human clinical trials, women who ingested collagen peptides for eight weeks were found to have a 20% reduction in the volume of eye wrinkles, a 65% increase in type 1 skin collagen, and an 18% increase in skin elastin content.
Dr. Ohhira’s Premium Collagen Plus contains a combination of low molecular weight marine collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid Japanese cherry blossom extract. These synergistic ingredients promote collagen synthesis, which helps reverse skin aging by increasing the skin’s strength, elasticity, and moisture content.
