Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C

Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C

Growth factors: We have known since the 70s that retinoids and retinols are great collagen stimulators (which equals wrinkle fighters). In this century, we developed collagen growth factors which are derived from actual human skin and are necessary for collagen to thrive, thus reducing and eliminating wrinkles. Note i did not say "appearance of wrinkles". Skinmedica is my favorite product to contain these. ...Read more

For 57+ F with stage-2 osteoarthritis of knee joints, which one is better - Uniflexin tablets or Collagen Peptide along with calcium & vitD medicines?

Osteoarthritis: The best medicine would be vitamin D 1000 units a day along with calcium. I am more concerned with your osteoarthritis of knee joints. There are many ways to control this and you should see a leg specialist as soon as possible - no urgency but no delay. Please let me know how things go. ...Read more

What are the benefits of taking collagen capsules? 4 capsules daily. Hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides.

Not much evidence: There aren't a lot of studies out that have tested the health effects of all these collegen supplements.One study found that it does not really help with bone health,and another showed some preservation of lean body mass in older women but no skin improvement.It seems that elastin skin products have not shown clinically to improve elasticity of the skin but do help the skin hold moisture. ...Read more

Is hydrolyzed collagen beneficial in healing frozen shoulder?

Joint arthritis, prolonged shoulder immobility, bursitis (inflammation of the fluid-filled sac around the shoulder joint) and strained tendons and ligaments can contribute to frozen shoulder.

DERMATOLOGISTS: Will taking collagen capsules help with fine lines over time? Ingredients:hydrolyzed marine collagen, elastin polypeptides

I really doubt it.: Protein is digested and absorbed. It's doubtful that a small amount of a particular protein is going to be 'special' compared to a burger. Less collagen, degraded protein loss of subcutaneous fat are aging features that promote crow's feet and specific dietary proteins just aren't going to change any of that. ...Read more

For 57+ F is consumption of Zedfit (collagen peptide) safe for long term ? How much real benefit does it have for osteoarthritis treatment ?

No proven benefit: Here in the States, we're allowed to sell dietary supplements w/o 1st proving either safety or benefit, which is different from medications (both prescription & over-the-counter) where we have to prove both before marketing. With that in mind, there's no proof of safety in consuming collagen peptide nor of benefit for osteoarthritis. It doesn't mean it's not safe or doesn't work. Just no proof. ...Read more

Is the ingredients mention below suitable for pregnant woman 1) Collagen peptide 2) perilla seed extract 3) silk protein 4) soy isolfavone?

Is the ingredients mention below suitable for pregnant woman 1) Collagen peptide 2) perilla seed extract 3) silk protein 4) soy isolfavone?

Forget this stuff.: Take your prenatal vitamins, folic acid, calcium and Vit. D and nothing else. All of those products are poorly studied and there is very little responsible, independent testing to determine if they actually work or if they may have side effects, or harm fetuses. Also the companies have different ways of making up these pills. Save your money and spend it on plenty of fruits and veggies instead. ...Read more

Can hydrolized collagen supplement cause acne?

Can hydrolized collagen supplement cause acne?

No, it doesn't: Collagen, either in supplements or in food like chicken, beef, turkey, etc does not cause acne. There are lots of claims about the benefits of hydrolyzed collagen. Even though it sounds good to take collagen supplements, tt's not certain that they actually do anything good for a person. It's best to get protein from food sources. ...Read more

Why would I need an insulin c-peptide measurement?

Why would  I  need an insulin c-peptide measurement?

Insulin production: C-peptide is usually measured to see how much Insulin a patient is producing, specially when he is already on insulin. Proinsulin is broken off into c-peptide and Insulin in our body, therefore if you have detectable amounts of c-peptide despite receiving Insulin you are still making some insulin, if your c-peptide is low you will need Insulin to metabolize your sugar. ...Read more
