collagen capsules have been designed to
stimulate collagen production and help
replace the loss that occurs after the
age of 25. Collagen is encapsulated in
its purest form, which increases its effectiveness
in the body. The results are progressive
and users should feel the skin become
smoother over the first few weeks and
gradually become firmer. The eye area
is the first place where they will notice
lines and wrinkles diminish and the lip
borderline should also start to fill out.
You will also notice your nails become

Collagen is one of the most important proteins
found in the human body and makes up 75% of
protein found in the skin. Collagen provides
the skin with resilience to withstand stretching
and punctures. As we grow older, collagen production
slows down and loses its flexibility and capacity
for absorption. The skin becomes thinner and
you will start noticing the appearance of wrinkles
and drier skin.
Natural science - the
BioCol range... contains soluble
marine collagen and is processed by using a
unique and patented method, which preserves
most of its moisture retaining properties. It
is obtained from the collagen tissue of tropical
warm-water fish. The fact that it is soluble,
enables it to penetrate into the deeper layers
of the skin and help replenish the body's own
collagen stores while at the same time stimulating
collagen production to enable tissue renewal.
Improvements are seen in the smoothness and
firmness of the skin and lines become less visible.
