    A STUDY TO ASSESS THE EFFECT ON WRINKLES OF A NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT CONTAINING HIGH DOSAGE OF HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN
    Maryam Borumand, Sara Sibilla

    Hydrolysed collagen consists of small peptides with low molecular weight, produced from native collagen found in bones, skin and connective tissue of animals, such as cattle, pigs and fish. Due to its low molecular weight, hydrolysed collagen is highly digestible, easily absorbed and distributed in the human body. If ingested, collagen peptides have been shown to be absorbed in the gut and delivered to the skin and joints. In-vitro and in-vivo studies have shown this may impact the skin ageing process. A double-blinded, randomised, placebo controlled study including 108 healthy volunteer subjects was performed to assess the efficacy of an anti-ageing food supplement containing high dosage of hydrolysed collagen, called Pure GOLD COLLAGEN®. Volunteers consumed the products daily for 12 weeks. Most subjects agreed Pure GOLD COLLAGEN® improved the condition of their skin, hair, nails and joints. The effect on the skin was investigated on a sub-group of the volunteers and significant improvements in the wrinkles were achieved, primarily in the surface area and length of wrinkles. Daily oral consumption of Pure GOLD COLLAGEN® for up to 12 weeks does lead to a detectable improvement in skin health. The observations noted in this preliminary study indicate that Pure GOLD COLLAGEN® is effective in improving the appearance of wrinkles of multiple depths and lengths.
