Wrinkle miracles won’t work if you eat this skin-sagging food

Hydrolyzed collagen is all the rage. And its age-defying capabilities appear to hold real benefits for your skin.

Collagen is a protein central to the elasticity and regeneration of our skin. It’s responsible for keeping skin firm, plump, smooth and young-looking.

Hydrolyzed collagen peptides are readily available in protein powders and supplements — and in this bioavailable form can give your skin what it needs to keep it’s elasticity and firmness, including glycine, proline and lysine — amino acids required by the body to build healthy tissue.

The cosmeceutical industry has seen a boon in start-up companies producing and selling these collagen products.  And for the first time, they may be peddling a product that really works as many studies back up their claims…

Peak Chelation+ Resveratrol

Your body is exposed to an onslaught of chemicals and pollutants daily. Once inside, they travel a superhighway – your circulatory system – reaching every inch of your body and interfering with vital functions. Peak Chelation+ Resveratrol is formulated with nutrients that help flush these harmful toxins out of your body! MORE⟩⟩


In one large study, women who took 50ml of a specific brand of hydrolyzed collagen peptide once a day for 12 weeks experienced a significant increase in collagen density and skin firmness. 1  After 60 days they experienced a noticeable reduction in skin dryness and wrinkle depth. Additionally, production levels of procollagen (the body’s precursor to collagen) in the women skyrocketed.

You can bet the products derived from hydrolyzed collagen will cost a pretty penny, but they very well may be worth it. However no matter how much you spend on them or use them, there’s one common food you’re likely eating that could turn all those skin-firming benefits into a complete waste of your money…

It’s sugar. And Americans consume more of it than anyone… in sodas, processed foods and our standard American diet that tends to be carbohydrate heavy. In addition to setting you up for obesity and diabetes — it’s aging you.

In the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Dr. Nina Radcliff explains, “Processed sugars trigger the release of inflammatory messengers called cytokines. These in turn break down collagen and elastin, and result in sagging skin and wrinkles. In addition to damaging collagen, a high-sugar diet also affects what type of collagen you have — another factor in how resistant skin is to wrinkling.

“Researchers have also found that sugar attaches to proteins in our body to form harmful new molecules called Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs for short). AGEs deactivate our body’s natural antioxidant enzymes, leaving us more vulnerable to sun damage — the main cause of skin aging and skin cancer.”

So if you really want an anti-aging — and health-boosting — miracle, you’ll need to cut as much sugar from your diet as you can. Give up the sodas, including the one’s sweetened with artificial sweeteners, and processed food. That will drop a literal ton of added sugars immediately.

Dr. Radcliff recommends limiting your sugar to no more than 10 percent of your total caloric intake. That’s less than 10 teaspoons — the amount you’ll find in one 12 ounce can of soda.
