About 30% of proteins in our body are composed of collagen, which is one ofthe main structural proteins found in the connective tissue. Collagen is critical for joints, in the stability of bones, support of muscles health, ligaments and tendons,in the maintenance of a skin without wrinkles, bright hair and beauty nails. During the natural process of skin ageing, the dermis suffers with loss of moisture, looking drier and thinner, that leads to a loss of firmness and elasticity of the bonds in the connective tissue causing wrinkles.

Collagen type i is the main structural component of Extracellular Matrix (EM) in the skin, responsible of the maintenance of the structure of the dermis. It is firstly synthesized by fibroblasts as a precursor named pro-collagen type i, that after being secreted suffers proteolytic action to form collagen fibers.

The elastic fibers, made of elastin and microfiber proteins are also important components of Extracellular Matrix (EM) in the skin, conferee resistance to the dermis, balancing biomechanical properties of skin (elasticity, firmness)

Bioactive peptides of collagen VERISOL® are made up of specific peptides and optimized according each need, derived from a production process controlled and determined by hydrolysis conditions.

Consequently, the bioactive peptides of collagen VERISOL® differ in their physiological functioning, being optimized in order to maximize the stimulation to human cells involved in the biosynthesis of collagen. Once ingested, bioactive peptides of collagen VERISOL® are absorbed and distributed to the skin. In the skin tissue, the peptides produce a stimulation effect of anabolic metabolism, stimulating fibroblasts to produce proteins of the extracellular matrix of the skin, mainly collagen type I.

The effect of collagen peptides in the increase of the synthesis of the extracellular is based in two mechanisms:

    • Usual collagen amino acids supply as valuable components;
    • Stimulating celular synthesis.

Therefore, VERISOL® has the ability of increasing collagen typo i and proteoglycans involved in the formation and supporting of elastic dermal fibers, resulting in a decrease of flaccidity and improving skin moisture and softness.
