Lorna Vanderhaeghe Collagen Plus

Lorna Vanderhaeghe Collagen Plus Details

What to expect from this product:

  • Smooth, beautiful, glowing skin
  • Thicker, stronger, healthier hair
  • Strong nails and bones
  • More flexible connective tissue
  • Stops receding gums
  • Use with Bone Booster for osteoporosis

Why You Need Collagen


Over one-quarter of all the protein in the body is made up of collagen. Collagen is the protein that makes your bones, nails, teeth and hair strong. Collagen connective tissues run throughout the body and provide structure for your skeleton, tendons, cartilage and muscles, all of which support your internal organs and protect your softer tissues.

Collagen and Skin

Collagen also plays a critical role in skin health. You have probably noticed how baby skin is so soft and smooth. Youthful skin is abundant in collagen and elastin fibers that lock in moisture and keep the skin firm. As we age, however, collagen production naturally declines by about 1 percent a year starting in our early 20s. Women in menopause are especially susceptible to collagen deficiency. Research shows that women lose as much as 30 percent of their skin collagen in the five years following menopause. And as if that is not bad enough, skin elasticity declines 0.55 percent per year after menopause. It is the loss of collagen that causes sagging skin and wrinkles.

Women spend billions of dollars on treatments such as skin fillers, laser and Botox. More so than any expensive treatment, however, it is possible to support beautiful skin and collagen production by choosing nutrients that provide the body with the necessary building blocks such as silicic acid and biotin.

The Silicon/Collagen Connection

Silicon is a trace mineral required by the body to make collagen. Specifically, silicon is converted into silicic acid that the body requires to manufacture collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, silicon from food, herbs and colloidal (gel) silica supplements is poorly absorbed, resulting in a lack of the building blocks required to make collagen. Collagen Plus contains silicic acid, which is directly used to make collagen. Within two to three months, you will notice an improvement in the smoothness of your skin and in the strength of your hair and nails.

Collagen Plus for Stronger Bones

Collagen is part of the matrix that ensures strong bones. One in four women has osteoporosis, and hip fractures are a leading cause of disability and sometimes death. Smart women choose Collagen Plus as part of their healthy bone program. Receding gums are an early indicator of osteoporosis, and dentists have reported that Collagen Plus stops receding gums. Weak, fragile nails are also symptoms of poor bone health. To prevent osteoporosis, take Collagen Plus and Multismart. Multismart contains all the bone-building nutrients, including the right forms of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, along with all of your vitamins and minerals. If you have osteoporosis, take Collagen Plus, Multismart and Bone Booster. Bone Booster contains vitamin K2 MK-7 and vitamin D3, superior forms of nutrients to enhance bone health.

The "Plus" in Collagen Plus Is Biotin

Like silicic acid, biotin is important for healthy hair, skin, nails and bones. Food sources of biotin include nuts, egg yolk, wheat bran, oat, barley, liver and brewer's yeast. However, the therapeutic amount of biotin required for healthy hair and nails exceeds that found in the typical diet. Topical biotin, often added to hair care products, is not as effective as biotin in capsule form. Supplemental biotin has been found to increase nail thickness and reduce splitting. Collagen Plus contains 50 micrograms of biotin per recommended daily dose.


Lorna Vanderhaeghe GLA Borage Oil Skin Oil, 237ml

 

Lorna Vanderhaeghe GLA Borage Oil Skin Oil Details

Lorna Vanderhaeghe GLA Borage Oil is unrefined virgin GLA from borage oil.

What to expect from this product:

  • Ensures beautiful, smooth, glowing skin
  • Improves calcium retention in bones
  • Treats eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
  • Stops breast and period pain
  • Stops cradle cap and dermatitis in infants
  • Can also be applied topically along with oral treatment

What is GLA and What are the Benefits

GLA is a " Very" Essential Fat

Essential fatty acids are good fats "essential" for optimal health. Unfortunately the North American diet is made up predominantly of bad fats from red meats and processed foods. To make matters worse when an enzyme in the body is impaired we can't make the good fats GLA, EPA or DHA. We can overcome this problem by eating fish or fish oils that contain EPA and DHA but when it comes to GLA the only way to get this important fatty acid is to take it in a nutritional supplement.

GLA (gamma linolenic acid) is found in borage oil (20 to 24%) and to a lesser extent evening primrose oil (8 to 10%). GLA is not found in food in high enough quantities to maintain our needs through diet alone.

GLA Eases Cramps and Breast Pain

GLA deficiency is a major cause of PMS. A healthy body creates GLA via an enzyme from fats such as sunflower oil into prostaglandins, which are hormone-like compounds that regulate blood clotting, inflammation and muscle contraction. Just before menstruation a cascade of prostaglandins are initiated in the uterus which causes the constriction of blood vessels and contractions that cause pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, bloating and headaches that coincide with PMS. There are good prostaglandins and bad prostaglandins. Painful menstruation and breast pain are caused by low levels of good anti-inflammatory prostaglandins which are made from GLA. In many women with breast pain and terrible PMS their ability to make GLA is often impaired. One trial done at the breast clinic at the University of Hong Kong used GLA for the treatment of cyclical breast pain. Of the 66 women in the study 97% responded to treatment with GLA after 6 months. Further studies have found unusually low concentrations of GLA in the women suffering with period cramps and breast pain. The recommended dose is 1000 - 2000mg of GLA per day.

GLA, Menopause and Skin

In women who have gone through menopause, the enzyme that converts food into GLA becomes impaired. GLA is a major component of beautiful skin. GLA makes your skin luminescent, dewy and glowing. The main reason our skin becomes dull and thick after menopause is due to the inability to make GLA. After menopause it is essential that we take a daily dose of GLA to ensure beautiful skin. As we age GLA can reduce inflammation in the skin associated with wrinkled skin. Without sufficient GLA the skin becomes dry, rough and wrinkled. GLA is the beautiful skin oil.

GLA and Skin Health

GLA is a component of healthy skin. GLA helps to maintain the stability and fluidity of the natural water loss barrier in our skin. Skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, cradle cap, acne and dry skin occur. GLA is vital for keeping skin cells moist and strong improving the barrier function of the skin. 60 patients given 500mg of GLA per day for eczema had a 90% improvement over 12 weeks. Eczema is a common problem in infants and children. GLA is safe for all ages without the side effects seen with steroid creams.

Cradle cap and infant dermatitis or dry crusts on the skin occur on the scalp, face, armpits, chest and groin area and can be treated with topical GLA oil. 48 infants with dermatitis were given twice daily applications of GLA oil for 6 weeks with complete relief. One teaspoon containing 500mg of GLA should be applied twice a day.

GLA has also been found to inhibit male hormones in the skin that cause acne. GLA can be taken both internally and applied externally to acne prone areas with excellent results.

GLA and Breast Cancer

In a British study women with advanced metastatic breast cancer taking Tamoxifen (a cancer drug that blocks estrogen) who also took GLA had a much faster response than those on Tamoxifen alone. Participants received 300mg of GLA per day. The United Kingdom Cancer Research Campaign reports that GLA holds great potential in new cancer treatments.

GLA and Bone Density

Studies performed over 18 months found that when GLA was combined with calcium, GLA enhanced the absorption of calcium and improved bone density and prevented bone loss. Sixty five women with an average age of 79 years were given 600mg of calcium glycinate/ aspartate along with 1000mg of GLA and had up to a 2% increase in bone density whereas the group receiving calcium alone lost 2 to 3% of bone over the 18 month period. Borage oil is the highest source of GLA.  GLA Borage Oil contains 1,000mg of GLA per serving.


Lorna Vanderhaeghe Active Collagen, 120 Vegetarian Capsules

Lorna Vanderhaeghe Active Collagen Details

Marine Collagen and Elastin Polypeptides

What to expect from this product:

  • Reduces the depth of deep wrinkles
  • Lifts and tones sagging areas
  • Increases skin moisture
  • Protects against free radical sun damage to skin
  • Works fast with excellent clinical research
  • Improves hair thickness
  • Improves bone mineral density and joint disease
  • Stops brittle nails
  • Enhances collagen and elastin in 28 days
Over one-quarter of all the protein in the body is made up of collagen. Collagen is the protein that makes your bones, nails, teeth and hair strong. Collagen is also the main structural component of skin. Starting in our early 20s, however, collagen production declines by about one percent a year. Women in menopause are especially susceptible to collagen decline. Women lose as much as 30 percent of their skin collagen in the !ve years following menopause. And as if that is not bad enough, skin elasticity declines 0.55 percent per year after menopause. The effects of slowed collagen production are visibly obvious when skin loses its structure, sags and wrinkles. 
 
A second yet equally important component of skin is called elastin. Elastin fibers form a matrix with collagen; together they allow the skin to flex and move. When we are young, the skin naturally renews its collagen and elastin. But with age, and as exposure to sun and environmental toxins damages the skin, this renewal rate slows down. Fortunately, it is possible to support collagen and elastic production.
 
Sourced from European waters to meet the highest standards of purity, Active Collagen is a marine ingredient composed of collagen and elastin polypeptides present in the same ratio that is naturally found in skin. Active Collagen has a synergistic anti-wrinkle action: when taken orally, collagen and elastin stimulate the skin to lift and tone sagging areas and minimize lines and wrinkles. 
 
Active Collagen can also increase the moisture level of dry skin and fight aging related to free radical damage. Active Collagen polypeptides have a low molecular weight, making it water-soluble and easily absorbed by the body. 
 
In a study of 43 women between the ages of 40 and 55 with crow's feet wrinkles, consumption of Active Collagen was found to decrease lines and wrinkles as well as to increase skin moisture. Two grams per day of either Active Collagen or placebo were ingested with a glass of water for 84 days. Subjects' forearm and face skin conditions were measured at day 0, day 28 and day 84. Day 28 through 84 were during winter months to simulate harsh winter conditions. 
 
After 28 days, Active Collagen caused a significant decrease of 19 percent of the number of deep wrinkles in 71 percent of the subjects. Maximum benefit was achieved quickly. However, the placebo group experienced an increase in the number of deep wrinkles at both day 28 and day 84. Finally, Active Collagen caused a moisturizing effect on the skin. No side effects were reported. In conclusion, Active Collagen improved skin moisture and decreased the number of deep wrinkles. Active Collagen provided a protective effect against wrinkles compared to the placebo group (who actually experienced an increase in wrinkles).
 
 
After 28 days, Active Collagen significantly decreased the number of wrinkles. At day 84, Active Collagen protected against wrinkles when exposed to harsh winter conditions.
