ELIXIR Q -About Collagen


About Collagen

  • Collagen makes up 30% of the proteins in our bodies
  • It is the key structural protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of all our connective tissues, including skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bones.
  • It is strong and flexible and is the ‘glue’ that holds everything together.
  • There are many types of collagen in our body but 1, 2 and 3 are most frequent (80-90%).

Collagen in human skin

  • Collagen provides the skin firmness and structure. It also activates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and contributes to skin hydration.
  • After our 30s our bodies naturally begin to produce less collagen, and the first signs of aging start to occur.
  • As skin cells become less active, our skin becomes dehydrated and thinner, while lines, wrinkles and deep furrows start to appear. 

 

 

Hydrolized collagen

  • Collagen is a natural ingredient available in different grades. It can be found in foods, such as bone broth or gelatin-based desserts. Its solubility, absorption and digestibility levels vary from one grade to another.
  • While native collagen is not soluble, gelatine is obtained by partial hydrolysis of collagen and thus offers better solubility.
  • Collagen peptides are obtained by complete enzymatical hydrolysis of collagen (breaking down of the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands to peptides) which makes them highly bioactive.

 

ELIXIR Q - Peptan® and skin 

  • Peptan® is world’s leading collagen peptides brand
  • It contains type 1 collagen peptides, identical to the collagens found in human bones and skin.
  • High-purity, natural bioactive product, containing more than 97% protein (on a dry weight basis). 
  • Peptan collagen peptides are optimized for high bioavailability, and their hydrolyzed form makes them easily digestible by humans.
  • 18 amino acids; glycine and proline concentration in Peptan® is up to 20 times higher than in other proteins

ELIXIR Q and Peptan® clinical studies

 

  • Peptan® is leading collagen peptides brand in the “beauty nutrition” segment, with the most clinical studies among collagen brans
  • Randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial with 106 women (40-65), taking 10 grams of Peptan® (vs placebo) for 3 months

 

 

►significantly decreased fragmentation of collagen in the deep layer of the dermis – by 18% after 4 weeks and 31% after 12 weeks of Peptan intake

►significantly increased the density of collagen in the dermis by 9% after 4 weeks of Peptan intake

 

 

 

ELIXIR Q and Peptan®


Besides decreased fragmentation and increased density of collagen, regular daily 10 mg intake of Peptan also:

  • increases skin hydration by 28% after eight weeks of intake
  • Improves the skin's moisture by increasing the amount of water-binding hyaluronic acid in the epidermis
  • improves the quality of skin collagen by reversing structural damage that occurs during skin aging
  • provides an anti-aging effect by maintaining the structure and integrity of the skin's matrix

 

 

ELIXIR Q and Q10
About Coenzyme Q10

  • Coenzyme Q10 is fat soluble molecule, present in every cell of our bodies.
  • Crucial for energy metabolism and very powerful natural antioxidant
  • Besides providing our body with energy, Q10 has an important role in cardiovascular health, neurodegenerative health, male fertility, immune system, migraines and dental health.
  • After the age of 25 the endogenous production of Q10 in our bodies starts slowing down. The fall is especially significant in our hearts and other key organs (100% at the age of 20; 68% at the age of 40 and 43% at the 80’s).
  • The most noticeable consequences of CoQ10 deficiency is loss of energy and chronic fatigue.
  • Since the levels of Q10 in various tissues reduce with increasing age, supplementation is highly recommended to restore normal levels.


ELIXIR Q - Q10 and skin

Coenzyme Q10 and skin

  • The accumulation of damage caused by free radicals represents an important part of the ageing process. Q10 is present exactly where the majority of free radicals are generated therefore it has a fundamental influence on the ageing process.
  • Coenzyme has been used in cosmetics industry for ages, however none significant or effective studies have been made in that segment.
  • The reason is that human skin is a very thick and protective organ, therefore the active ingredients in creams cannot penetrate as deep as they would have to in order to reach the relevant layers of skin

BEAUTY COMES FROM WITHIN

ELIXIR Q – Quvital superiority

  • Quvital® is a patented water-soluble Q10 complex with clinically proven superior bioavailability. It is made from Q10 of natural source and enables water-based formulations like syrups, oral sprays, powdered drinks etc.
  • 2 different clinical studies have proven that the absorption of Q10Vital® is 4-times higher compared to crystalline (basic) Q10 and more than 2-times higher compared to soft-gel capsules.

 

ELIXIR Q - Q10 clinical studies

  • Quvital® has also been proven to decrease the signs of ageing.
  • Randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial with 33 women (40-65), taking 2 different doses of Q10Vital® (vs placebo) for 3 months, showed significant decrease of wrinkles:


  • HD (high dose group) = 150 mg Quvital® daily
  • LD (low dose group) = 50 mg Quvital® daily

 

 

 

 

ELIXIR Q - Q10 clinical studies

  • The study has also shown improved skin microrelieph, as well as skin smoothness and firmness.

Images show the periorbital area of 2 subjects (60 years old) from the LD group (1a, b) and HD group (2a, b) before and after 12 weeks of Q10Vital® supplementation.

 

Arrows mark the wrinkles that visibly improved.
