Superior collagen and CoQ10
The product contains high-quality hydrolyzed fish collagen Naticol® and water-soluble, highly efficient form of coenzyme Q10 – Q10Vital® – with clinically proven superior absorption. Naticol® collagen is a rich source of amino acids, the building blocks of our tissues and the primary components of proteins, which are naturally present in skin, bones and cartilage. Both, Naticol® and Q10Vital® are clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by contributing to skin firmness and smoothness.
Furthermore, Valens Premium Collagen Complex contains zinc, which contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and bones. Vitamin C contributes to collagen formation for normal function of bone and cartilage, which is an important part of joints. Vitamin C, zinc and selenium play an important role in protecting cells against oxidative stress. The product also contains vitamin A and biotin which contribute to the maintenance of normal skin, while selenium contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and nails.

Naticol® – quality collagen peptides
Valens Premium Collagen Complex contains Naticol®, marine (fish) collagen peptides of the highest quality. Naticol® is a natural source of type 1 collagen peptides and it contains more than 16% of essential amino acids (9/10) and around 50% of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. These are key aminoacids that constitute type I collagen. No other source of protein can provide this ratio of major skin components.
The main reason we choose this collagen peptides for our collagen liquid is that Naticol® has clinically demonstrated its role as an ingredient in well-aging applications. It is proven to statistically significantly improve skin appearance. It is also neutral in odour and taste.
Results of clinical studies
- The results of oral ingestion of 10g Naticol® on a daily basis, up to 12 weeks, clinically show that regular intake of Naticol® Fish collagen peptides should improve the basic skin moisture and elasticity, and reduces wrinkles.
- Oral intake of 5 g Naticol®/day, for 8 weeks, showed benefits on skin firmness and a reduction of wrinkle appearance.
- The results of oral ingestion of 2,5g Naticol® on a daily basis, up to 12 weeks, clinically showed that regular intake of Naticol® may improve skin elasticity and reduce facial wrinkle appearance. In this study, skin complexion homogeneity and radiance were also significantly improved after 8 weeks.
Q10Vital® – water soluble form of CoQ10 with proven superior absorption
Valens Premium Collagen Complex contains Q10Vital®, innovative form of CoQ10, that was developed in Slovenia. This form has clinically proven superior absorption – 4-times better compared to regular CoQ10. Q10Vital® represents by far the most effective form of CoQ10 with improved bioavailability.
In Valens, we believe the beauty comes from within, so we decided to prove the effects of regular consumption of CoQ10 on skin with a clinical study. The results were revolutionary – they confirmed the positive effects of CoQ10 consumption on skin structure, firmness and microrelief (wrinkles reduction).

What is collagen and how is it connected to skin beauty?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and an important building block of human skin, muscles, joint cartilage and connective tissues. The production of collagen starts to decline around the age of 25 by about 1-2% each year and is not replenished. First signs of ageing in the form of wrinkles, sagging skin, brittle fingernails and thinner hair thus appear. The decline of collagen can be partly substituted with food (mostly found in gelatin and bone marrow), however due to its large molecule structure the absorption is relatively poor. Valens Premium Collagen Complex contains hydrolyzed fish collagen Naticol® distinguished by its high purity and exceptional absorption. Several clinical studies demonstrated efficacy and multiple benefits on skin upon its regular use.
Why is CoQ10 also called youth elixir?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is body’s endogenous compound and crucial for cellular energy production. Due to its numerous beneficial effects and long-standing use in the cosmetics industry, we also call it “the elixir of youth”. Natural production of CoQ10, alike collagen, declines with age. Being a fat-soluble molecule, CoQ10 is also known for poor absorption, therefore experts recommend replacing its deficiency with highly bioavailable formulations. Valens Premium Collagen Complex contains Q10Vital®, a water-soluble form of CoQ10 with clinically proven 4-times better bioavailability compared to regular CoQ10. Furthermore, a clinical study has proven that regular use of Q10Vital® contributes to the reduction of wrinkles and improves skin evenness and firmness.
What is the difference between ubiquinone and ubiquinol?
CoQ10 is present in the human body in both, oxidized (ubiquinone) and reduced (ubiquinol) form. Ubiquinol shifts to Ubiquinone during or following the absorption in the intestine, consequently its function is not affected by the form in which it is consumed. The key challenge is the initial CoQ10 absorption, which is highly improved in Q10Vital®.
Continuous conversion between Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol (reduction –oxidation) takes place in vivo. Depending on whether CoQ10 is in the blood and lymph or inside the mitochondria of the cells, it shifts to the form that is needed in the particular situation.
What is the role of CoQ10 in beauty industry?
The effect CoQ10 has on skin has been long known in the beauty industry. That is why so many products like creams and lotions contain CoQ10. However, the absorption of CoQ10 through skin is by far inferior. In Valens, we believe the beauty comes from within, so we decided to prove the effects of CoQ10 on skin with a clinical study and it has been proven that regular consumption of CoQ10 in high-enough dosages has an important effect on beauty of skin.
Are products with CoQ10 safe to use?
CoQ10 is a safe, totally natural substance. It is naturally present in the human body and when taken in the form of supplements, the body will eliminate surplus of it. Clinical studies have been conducted on very high dosages and all available data confirmed safety of CoQ10. Therefore, the use of Valens Premium Collagen Complex is perfectly safe!
Can I consume enough CoQ10 with food only?
We can consume some CoQ10 with food, but the quantities in food are too insignificant to fully substitute endogenous synthesis of CoQ10. Even if we consumed food, rich with CoQ10 – cooking and drying destroys CoQ10. If we wanted to fully substitute deficit of CoQ10 with food, we would have to consume at least half a kilogram of anchovies, one kilogram of meat or 20 liters of whole milk, which is against healthy dietary recommendations.
