Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body, and up to 70% of the protein in our skin is made from collagen- hence its reputation as an essential beauty supplement. Collagen is vital for healthy skin, hair, and nails, and we’ve combined it with our favourite beauty supporting nutrients in our Primal Goddess blend to help you get that glow.
Why is Collagen important for skin?
Collagen production declines as we age, so as we get into our 30’s and 40’s we begin to notice a difference in our hair, skin and nails. Brittle nails, thinning hair, and wrinkles are just a few of the signs that collagen production is slowing down.
Replenishing and supporting our natural collagen stores helps skin maintain its structural integrity, locking in moisture and protecting it from further damage resulting in loss of elasticity, as well as supporting healthy, strong, hair and nails.
Our Primal Goddess contains hydrolysed collagen peptides which are vital for the strength and structure of our skin, hair, and nails. Collagen peptides offer increased bio-availability, and are rich in the amino acid building blocks to stimulate the production of new collagen and other skin supporting compounds. This blend also contains lots of primal foods including antioxidant rich berries, and herbs like horsetail, as well as nutrients like biotin and hyaluronic acid which are excellent choices for glowing skin, healthy hair, and strong nails. These nutrients work synergistically with the collagen and each other to help us glow from the inside out.
Key Primal Goddess actives:
Hyaluronic Acid: A natural polysaccharide which is important in the network of fibres that support the surface layers of skin, it is a glycosaminoglycan which is one of the compounds in our skin that assists in binding water (1) , this helps the skin to stay hydrated and plump. As we age our hyaluronic acid levels begin to decrease causing a loss of skin moisture and increased signs of ageing of the skin. Hyaluronic acid supplementation has been shown to curb premature wrinkling, increase skin hydration and smoothness, boost skin elasticity, promote firm skin tone and enhance collagen synthesis.
Biotin: Biotin helps the cross linking of proteins in hair and nails and helps the maintenance of skin, hair, and sebaceous glands, as well as increasing the strength of nails. Deficiency symptoms include thinning hair and loss of hair colour.
Antioxidants: Antioxidants protect and defend the body from damage, they support our skin by countering unhealthy cell damage from free radials we face every day. Our Primal Goddess collagen powder is full of antioxidant nutrients like Vitamin C and Vitamin E and antioxidant rich herbs like Acai and Sea Buckthorn to protect the skin from cellular damage.
Vitamin C is essential for healthy skin due to its role in collagen production, wound healing, and protection from UV and free radical damage. Vitamin E also has many anti-aging properties and works synergistically with Vitamin C to support skin health.
Berries like Schisandra, Acai, Goji and Sea Buckthorn have traditionally been use to support beauty and revered for their anti-aging qualities, naturally rich in vitamin C and E as well as other powerful antioxidants, and essential fats which support the quality of hair, skin, and nails.
We combine these powerful nutrients and herbs, with silica rich Horsetail, traditional skin tonic Burdock, and Zinc which aids the production of collagen and keratin. Primal Goddess is our hero product and an essential for nourishing and supporting the skin, hair, and nails all year round.
