Today I would like to answer a great question I was recently asked. The question was if both the Bestow Collagen Boost and the Bestow Beauty from Beneath are designed to provide the building blocks for our skin to produce collagen, do we need to take both?
The answer is yes. This is because each product provides a different piece of the puzzle.
Collagen is a very complex fibre made up of approximately 400 amino acids all joined together in a chain. Accompanying those amino acids are numerous vitamins and minerals. Altogether these nutrients make up a flexible, elastic fibre that gives our skin its youthful appearance. Unfortunately a deficiency in any one of these nutrients can restrict how much collagen we can produce. This is why it is very important that we ensure our skin is well nourished.
The Bestow Collagen Boost provides the amino acids that form the backbone of our collagen fibres. These amino acids are proline and glycine. It used to be thought that our bodies could make all of the proline and glycine it needed from other protein sources. We now realise that our body can’t produce these amino acids as efficiently as we would like. Without these important nutrients there are restrictions in how much collagen we can actually form. This is why a dietary source of proline and glycine, like Bestow Collagen Boost, is an important piece of the collagen puzzle.
The Bestow Beauty from Beneath on the other hand provides all the other nutrients our collagen-producing cells require. Not many people realise just how many vitamins and minerals are needed to turn those amino acid into healthy collagen in their skin. Calcium, magnesium, potassium, B vitamins, iron, silica, vitamin K, E, C, A, copper, selenium and bioflavonoids are all needed. That’s a lot of nutrients!
So that is why you need to take both the Bestow Collagen Boost and the Bestow Beauty from Beneath every day. Each of these products provides a different piece of the collagen puzzle! One plus one equals collagen!
