Belo Nutraceuticals: Collagen Powder Drink Frequently Asked Questions

Belo Nutra Collagen Powder

1. What is collagen? Collagen is the most dominant protein in our bodies.  As a matter of fact, 30% of the protein found in our body is Collagen.  And more significantly, 70% of our skin is composed of Collagen. It provides strength and structure to different parts of the body, holding cells and tissues together in bones, tendons and ligaments.

2. How does collagen affect one’s skin? Collagen is naturally produced by our bodies and inhibits formation of wrinkles by keeping the skin elastic and supple. Unfortunately, the rate at which we produce collagen in our body decreases as we age; and exposure to the sun, free radicals and stress destroy the integrity of the collagen fibers in our skin.  It has been noted that there is a 20% decrease in collagen from age 20 to 40; and a 40-50% decrease from age 40-60.

3. What is Hyaluronic Acid? Hyaluronic acid is a powerful antioxidant, and is perhaps best known for its ability to bond water to tissue. It is found in the connective tissues of humans and animals. It plays a key role in cushioning and lubricating the body and is abundant in the eyes, joints and heart valves.

4. How does Hyaluronic Acid affect the skin? One of the most biologically relevant properties of hyaluronic acid is its ability to absorb water. Based on studies HA is able to absorb 1,000x its weight in water molecules. This unique ability has earned Hyaluronic Acid the title, Moisture Magnet. It is important to note that when skin is moisturized and hydrated, it exudes a youthful appearance.

5. Why has Belo come out with a collagen powder drink? Belo has come out with this product to complement the topical products of Belo Essentials that whiten from the surface of the skin.  Belo Nutraceuticals addresses whitening and anti-aging from within. This two-pronged strategy works best because not 100% of what you apply topically is absorbed into the skin.

6. How does Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink work in increasing the collagen in my skin? The collagen used in this formulation is hydrolyzed collagen. It is a process that breaks down big collagen molecules into smaller ones, making it easily absorbed by the body. Drinking collagen stimulates fibroblasts that help build collagen type 1, which is the collagen type found in the skin.

9. Will this product achieve similar results as the inexpensive collagen powder drink in health/food store? Collagen powder is a raw material and has different grades. Premium Collagen material is almost without the fishy odor and taste. Inexpensiveness of some collagen powder products can be attributed also to its low purity rating. Although no comparative test has been performed to confirm the efficacy of inexpensive collagen powder versus premium collagen powder, Belo Collagen drink only uses premium grade collagen. 10.

15. At what age should I start drinking collagen powder drink? It is recommended to start at 25 years of age. Although, taking the collagen powder under 25 years of age may further prevent the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles. Please note that this is a subjective experience.

16. Will drinking collagen powder drink make me gain weight? No. There are no ingredients that will cause an individual to gain weight.
