Role of collagen in the skin
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and an important building block of human skin, muscles, joint cartilage and connective tissues. It is produced naturally by our body and it takes part in the vital functions of almost every tissue system and organ of our body. Collagen is the key compound of our skin, where it contributes to its firmness and smoothness. Both intrinsic and extrinsic factors cause changes in collagen network and formation, mostly due to declining endogenous production and generation of reactive oxygen species, that damage skin cells and cause oxidative stress. Aging of the skin therefore occurs, as the epidermis thins, cell renewal slows and collagen is lost or damaged, leading to less moisture, less elasticity and firmness.
CoQ10 and skin beauty
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an endogenous substance, naturally produced by the human body. In the skin, CoQ10 is found in both cells and skin surface lipids, a constituent of the epidermis. Its skin levels, as well as in other organs, drop progressively with age, and supplementation is therefore recommended.
Clinically proven efficacy
A recent ground breaking clinical study proved beneficial effects of CoQ10 and collagen complex supplementation on skin. Regular intake of Valens Premium Collagen Complex for 12 weeks resulted in:
- Less wrinkles
- Skin evenness
- Firm and smooth skin
- Improved dermis density
The study submitted evidence of synergistic effect between CoQ10 and collagen peptides, indicating the effect of both ingredients is more powerful when ingested together.
