TIENS Glow Collagen shot contains hydrolysed form of marine collagen – collagen peptides, which are the most natural form of collagen for our body to absorb and utilize. Both the skin, where collagen makes up about 75% of the dry weight and provides volume that keeps the skin looking supple, and the joints benefit from collagen supply to the body.
What is collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is a key constituent of all connective tissue, it provides the infrastructure of the musculoskeletal system and is the main structural element of the skin, providing an extracellular matrix, which gives the skin much of its overall constitution and look.
TIENS Glow Collagen Shot is additionally formulated with Fresh Ginseng extract, Manuka honey and purple carrot juice – natural ingredients that are known to have extraordinarily high contents of antioxidants and other, potent active compounds.
Fresh Ginseng extract
Ginseng contains abundance of alkaloids such as ginsenosides, active compounds found exclusively in the plant genus Panax (ginseng). Many studies of the biological effects of ginsenosides in cell cultures have shown their high antioxidant capacity. Ginseng is considered one of the most precious adaptogens that have been widely used in different cultures and human populations since ancient times.
Quality of Manuka honey used in TIENS Glow Collagen Shot has been certified with the UMF™ mark. Manuka honey UMF10+ has a high methylglyoxal content of over 263 mg/kg. Methylglyoxal (MGO) is a naturally occurring chemical, responsible for high biological activity and unique antibacterial properties of Manuka honey. This puts it in the elite group of superfoods.
Purple carrot is an ancestor of modern carrot. It contains more nutrients comparing to regular orange carrot. Purple carrot has an exclusive valuable anthocyanidin- cyanidin – a natural pigment found in some red berries and dark, purple vegetables. In plant skin, dark-coloured cyanidin pigment exhibits significant antioxidant properties and like other anthocyanidins, protects them against oxidative stress induced by UV-rays and other free radicals.
Double-NUTRI2™ technology successfully combines the water-soluble and oil-soluble nutrients together with natural plant extract and functional ingredients. This patented, micro-emulsification technology allows micronization of active ingredients to functional particle size of 1~3μm, which ensures superb, quick absorption without the need for physical digestion in the body.
