Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
A University of Florida research study published October 2 in the Natural Medicine Journal1 finds preliminary support that the dietary supplement, Collagen Booster™ by Reserveage™ Organics, which contains resveratrol and BioCell Collagen®, can reduce facial pore size and help improve a woman’s satisfaction with her appearance.*
This open-label pilot study by the university’s College of Health and Human Performance, Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology, examined the effect of Collagen Booster on 29 healthy women ages 35 – 70 who reported dissatisfaction with signs of aging such as facial lines and wrinkles. The study evaluated whether interventions to reduce the appearance of aging in one’s skin could help support self-esteem.*
Collagen Booster contains Reserveage Organics’ patent-pending Pro-Longevity Resveratrol Blend™ and BioCell Collagen®, a triad of collagen protein, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate that has been clinically shown in an open-label study to provide important components for the skin’s collagen. Each serving delivers 1,000 mg of BioCell Collagen® and 100 mg of trans-resveratrol.*
The study participants each took a two-capsule serving of this oral supplement daily for six months and completed facial scans and self-assessments of their skin and body satisfaction at baseline, three months and six months.*
The facial analysis on participants revealed significant improvements in the percentage of facial pores from baseline to six months. The participants reported feeling improved satisfaction with their bodies and skin from baseline to six months.*
Participants measured their results on a self-reported Skin Satisfaction Scale, which assesses satisfaction with the following 10 areas: firmness, complexion, glow, pores, youthful appearance, fine lines, elasticity, wrinkles, smoothness, crow’s feet, tone, and overall skin.*
Ninety-three percent of the participants reported positive effects on their skin, with 83 percent reporting positive changes such as softer skin and the diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Seventy-two percent reported an increase in their energy level and exercise.
A randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial is needed to verify the results of the open-label study, led by Heather Hausenblas, PhD, and Stephen Anton, PhD. Both serve as advisers to Reserveage Organics or an affiliated entity.
“Healthy skin is associated with a youthful appearance and attractiveness,” said Hausenblas. “We hypothesized that taking dietary supplements such as resveratrol and collagen could enhance skin and body satisfaction. Collagen has been shown to support the collagen matrix in the skin, protect against free radical attack on the skin and to reduce the appearance of skin aging,. We tested the effects of Collagen Booster by Reserveage Organics on facial aging because it’s a unique formula that combines clinically researched resveratrol and BioCell Collagen®. The preliminary results of our study are quite encouraging.”*
Nutricosmetics (also known as beauty from within) refer to nutritional supplements that are taken orally to improve beauty and health, in particular the skin’s structure.
There is growing interest in both hydrolyzed collagen and resveratrol as nutricosmetical products to help lessen the negative effects of skin aging. Production of collagen, one of the beauty proteins the body produces naturally, begins to slow down as early as age 30, and signs of aging begin to show. Topical treatments can provide temporary results, but supplements that support beauty from within can help replenish these proteins.*
An open-label study of BioCell Collagen® found that women who took a hydrolyzed collagen supplement for 12 weeks showed significant improvement in the content of collagen.2
The Collagen Booster study also supports evidence that dietary bioactive antioxidant compounds such as polyphenols may have the potential to support both skin appearance and general health. Resveratrol is a polyphenol that has been researched extensively for its powerful antioxidant capacity, which can help protect the skin from environmental aging factors.*3
