Replenish to Beat Ageing
Thursday, October 5th 2006
What happens when we age? Read any magazine or watch any news or medical show and they'll say the usual, wrinkles, joint problems, arthritis, etc. Are these really synonymous with aging or can we avoid them? These signs of aging are largely a result of a slowing down of collagen production.
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body. It is necessary for the successful maintenance of healthy cartilage, tendons, ligament and skin. As we age, we lose this necessary protein. This loss can lead to joint degeneration, synovial (joint) fluid loss and dramatic skin changes. To maintain the vitality of these tissues the body needs the correct nutritional "raw materials" to keep it going.
Nature's Way Hydraplenish provides 500mg of the patented highly bioavailable Biocell Collegen Type II which provides hyaluronic acid, a constituent that is important for the retention of moisture in the body. (For best results take on an empty stomach)
Hyaluronic Acid helps the skin retain moisture and functions as a lubricant between the connective tissue of the skin. Take, for example, a drying fruit. A plum starts out plump and moist. When you remove the water, you get? A prune. The same thing happens with loss of Hyaluronic Acid. It leads to skin, eye and joint problems associated mostly with advanced age.
Nature's Way Hydraplenish can deliver this necessary protein to the body's resource center. It is guaranteed to contain standardized levels of Hydrolyzed Collagen Type II proteins, chondroitin sulphate, (important for maintaining healthy joint cartilage), Hyaluronic Acid, and MSM (a natural sulphur compound known for its beauty benefits).
Nature's Way Hydraplenish will help re-hydrate and quench the skins thirst, promoting a more radiant looking complexion.
