They say life is one thing after another, but sometimes it feels like it's all the things at once. This past year for me has been full of challenges, and I was starting to see it show on my face.
The greys were coming in at a much faster rate and the fine lines around my eyes and mouth were looking more pronounced than ever. I'd need more than just a good night's sleep to see any improvements.
I'd heard about collagen supplements, but I highly doubted that just ingesting powder could help me. I asked a friend and she recommended Stop Aging Now's collagen. I was still skeptical, but since it was such an easy addition to my routine, I thought I might try it.
Here are the 5 things I was surprised to learn about my new collagen supplement:
Stop Aging Now uses Verisol® - an advanced peptide complex of Types I and III collagen designed to stimulate new collagen production at the deepest level of the skin.
All you have to do is dissolve one scoop of powder daily into your favorite drink.
It starts at less than a $1 a day and if you subscribe, it gets cheaper.
The collagen comes from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine.
Stop Aging Now adds hyaluronic acid to their collagen for an added hydration boost.
In a study of women aged 45-65, Verisol® was taken every day for 8 weeks, leading to a 32% decrease in wrinkles around the eyes after only 4 weeks. Those are the numbers that really gave me hope, but the collagen itself worked like a charm.
After 4 weeks, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, but after two months, I noticed a difference around my eyes and mouth. It's so easy to remember to add a scoop of collagen to my morning drink, I never forget it.
With consistent use, I'm shocked! This product is incredible, and I like how transparent Stop Aging Now is about their sources and research.
If you're on the fence, give it a go. I went from full skeptic to subscriber.
