Why Bill and I said ‘yes’ to this fabulous new product? We absolutely want to age as strong and healthy and vibrant as we can. WE LOVE LIFE! We love Our Dance, we love Our Journey. We love each other, our family, our friends. We want to live full out until our last breath!
What we have been learning about collagen:
Aside from water, collagen is the most plentiful substance in our bodies and is considered the primary building block for joints, muscles, bones, skin, hair, and nails.
Over time, the ideal levels of collagen our bodies naturally produce begin to wane each year starting in our 20’s.
Within our joints and connective tissues, this collagen decline causes the strength of our ligaments and muscles to weaken – often leading to stiffness, soreness, and chronic pain.
Collagen fibers break down or no longer regenerate, and lead to a “deflation” effect on the surface of the skin. That also causes hair follicles to become brittle and fall out. Therefore, it can be concluded that the older one is, the larger their collagen deficit will be.
Collagen plays a role in strengthening skin, plus it may benefit elasticity and hydration. With age, the body produces less collagen, leading to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles.
We are hoping that taking our Isagenix Marine Collagen Elixir may help slow the aging of our skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness.
Collagen helps maintain the integrity of our connective tissues such as our joints, muscles, and cartilage, which is the rubber-like tissue that protects our joints. As the body’s collagen levels decrease with age, the risk of developing degenerative joint disorders increases.
We are hoping that taking our Isagenix Marine Collagen Elixir will help improve symptoms of joint disorders and reduce joint pain overall.
Our bones are made mostly of collagen, which gives them structure and helps them stay strong. As collagen levels deteriorate with age, bone mass does too, leading to crippling mobility concerns including severely low bone density and higher risks of bone fractures.
Between 1–10% of muscle tissue is composed of collagen. This means that collagen protein is vital for keeping our muscles strong and functioning properly as we age.
Collagen provides structure to our arteries, the blood vessels that carry blood from our heart to the rest of our body. Without enough collagen, arteries may become weak and fragile.
To put it simply, collagen is the “glue” that holds our body together.
Found in skin, hair, nails, bones, joints, muscles, tendons, blood vessels and vital organs, it’s the most abundant protein produced naturally in the human body, and a critical component of connective tissue.
Why are we all GLOWING?
As 30-day photos come rolling in, I find myself asking this same question. How can we really have results this significant in such a short time?
Answer: Type 1 Marine Collagen Elixir
It’s that simple. It’s that effective.
Here’s what I noticed in my first 30 days:
The fine lines and bags under my eyes feel smoother and more hydrated
Overall my skin feels more structured and less saggy
And perhaps the most subtle difference, but the one that will keep me taking this product is that I’m glowing from the inside out. Our skin is simply a reflection of how well we take care of our inner health. All the treatments and creams in the world cannot make up for lacking nutrients in the body. Treating my health (including that of my skin) naturally and holistically is my way to glow.
It takes up to 120 days to see true results and as everyone’s skin varies, everyone’s results will vary as well. In a preliminary study, participants experienced a 9.5% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in 30 days.
I’m excited to see where I am on Day #120, and hopefully, many of you will join me on the journey to healthy, naturally radiant skin in the meantime.
YOU deserve this GLOW too!
