The skin is our largest organ measuring about 1.7 m2 and weighing about 3 kg. The skin has a protective barrier function protecting against harmful bacteria from ouside and preventing the water from evaporating from the body. That is why you need to take care of your skin - all life long.
The skin is divided into three microscopic layers: 1. epidermis, 2. dermis, and subcutis.
GREEN BOOST contains 70% fish collagen
Hydrolyzed collagen of cod (Gadus Morhua) 70%, organic kale (DK-ØKO-100) 29%, acerola 1% and seaweed (Ascophyllum Nodosum) 0.2%. May contain traces of crustaceans and molluscs.
The most common type of collagen in your body is Type 1. Type 1 makes up about 80% of the collagen in the skin1. But the body's natural production of type 1 collagen decreases from about the age of 25-30, which contributes to us developing wrinkles. In other words, it is type 1 collagen that keeps the skin firm and supple.
Bovine collagen contains both type 1 and type 3 collagen, while marine collagen contains only type 1 collagen. This means that marine collagen in its structure is more reminiscent of the skin's own collagen, and therefore it is ideal for meeting your skin's collagen needs.
Collagen from fish consists of smaller protein peptides than collagen from bovine sources. The smaller a protein peptide, the better its uptake into the body. In fact, marine collagen is 1.5x more absorbed into the body than bovine collagen2.
In other words, you get "more for your money" when you use collagen from fish, as the increased bioavailability means that the body can absorb more of the collagen that you ingest.
Collagen peptides that you find in GREEN BOOST have also been hydrolyzed, which means that the already small peptides have been partially broken down, making them even easier for the body to digest and absorb.
GREEN BOOST contains 29% Organic KAlohas® bioactive kale powder which adds ANTIOXIDANTS, beta carotene, Flavonoids, vitamin C and ceramides (a number of essential lipids, fatty acids and HDL cholesterol) whose task is to keep the skin barrier healthy and intact, so moisture and water in the skin does not evaporate, and harmful particles from, for example, pollution do not penetrate from the outside.
Therefore, it will be a good idea to make a GREEN BOOST every morning - this is how you keep your skin
- and yourself fresh and with glow - all your life.
