Mikeda® Active Collagen 5000 removes signs of ageing by reducing oxidative stress markers, preventing collagen fibres from falling apart, increasing skin hydration and increasing the normal production of hyaluronic acid in the dermis of the skin. As a result, Mikeda® Active Collagen 5000 restores skin’s youthful look, improves the skin tone, texture, hydration and reduces wrinkles.

Can the collagen I drink get to my skin?

To be active in deeper layers of the skin, hydrolyzed collagen has to cross the intestinal barrier and reach the bloodstream. More than 90% of hydrolyzed collagen degrades in the digestive system into smaller tripeptides and dipeptides which are resistant to further degradation and free amino acids. These peptides are absorbed through the intestinal mucosa by the PEPT-1 transporter. Hydroxyproline containing di- and tripeptides appear in the blood within an hour of intake. Research has shown that absorbed peptides reach the skin and stay there for up to two weeks. This proves that collagen peptides are capable of getting into the dermis – the place of action.

In order to take the same collagen dose in a tablet, you would have to take at least 5 tablets. The liquid form is significantly more concentrated than the tablet or the capsule and it ensures quicker absorption and better efficiency.

What about creams that contain collagen?

Traditional skin care products (creams, serums…) which are applied locally to the skin work on the epidermis, but usually don’t go through to the dermis, regardless of their price or quality. However, it is the dermis layer of the skin which is vascularized and which brings oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin. This is why taking collagen in a drink is significantly more efficient in improving the quality of skin which is visible already after a few weeks of regular use.

What is the mechanism of action of the collagen in Mikeda® Active Collagen 5000?

Hydrolyzed collagen in the dermis works in two ways: free amino acids are used as a building element for producing collagen and elastic fibres, and collagen oligopeptides act as ligands connecting to the receptors on the fibroblast membrane and stimulate the production of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
