Collagen is the most abundant protein found naturally in the body. Along with supporting many important functions for overall health, it also gives the skin strength and structure. In other words, it’s what keeps our complexion plump and bouncy. From our 20s onwards, our supply of collagen begins to rapidly decline. This results in dehydration, skin laxity and sagging, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
Edible collagen has been clinically proven to top up the collagen levels we’ve lost and even promote the body to produce additional collagen. The result: smooth skin, increased hydration and a dewy, glowy look. We recently conducted a survey of 100 By Beth consumers who took our collagen daily for 8 weeks. In just this short period of time, they noticed an array of positive changes to their skin, especially when it came to anti-ageing. For instance, 88% said their skin felt much more hydrated and 70% noted that their skin’s elasticity had improved.
These anecdotal results reflect the clinical evidence. Numerous studies prove that edible collagen reduces eye wrinkles, reduces overall wrinkle depth and appearance, and reduces nalsobial fold depth while simultaneously improving skin hydration and moisture, improving skin roughness and improving skin texture.
So how, exactly, does edible collagen work? When you ingest edible collagen, it is absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body, in particular to the dermis (the layer of skin below the epidermis) where it can remain for up to 2 weeks. Edible collagen is so effective in filling out lines and smoothing wrinkles because it stimulates the production of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid – the building blocks of beauty and the hallmarks of a youthful appearance.
Taking it couldn’t be easier. All of our formulations come in powder form, so all you have to do is add 1 teaspoon to your drink of choice, stir to dissolve and sip. Our 100% bovine collagen is ethically sourced from grass-fed and pasture-raised Australian cattle, making it the most premium and pure collagen available. To further boost the beautifying properties of bovine collagen, By Beth formulations also harness native botanicals. Superpowered plants characterised by their incredibly high antioxidant levels, native botanicals work in conjunction with bovine collagen to fight free radical damage and defend against oxidative stress.
