The wrinkles start turning. The body starts breaking down. Suddenly you look at yourself in the mirror realize that you can see the change; you no longer look the same. The feeling of loss and disappointment sets in, and in most cases, reflects onto daily life. If only there were a way to get it all back...
Baltic Collagen inc. is a rather new corporation, with an interesting value proposition towards anti aging. Baltic Collagen products work by an entirely different mechanism of action. They do not seek to hide the effects of aging at all. They work to correct the underlying cause--protein breakdown. Over time the proteins that combine to make up the skin, are produced less abundantly and become thinner and less voluminous.
Not only are there less of these proteins present, the protein is thinner and less bulky, causing skin to stretch and sag. And thinner skin, it is more prone to forming wrinkles. It's similar to the way a single of paper is easier to fold than a stack of 50 sheets.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, forming strong sheets and cables that support the structure of skin, internal organs, cartilage and bones, as well as all the connective tissue in between.
The makers of Baltic Collagen were confronted with a challenging problem for several reasons. First of all, collagen is a very unstable, which is why it breaks apart at room temperatures. Second, externally applied collagen must be biochemically active. It is not useful unless it is recognized by the biological processes that use it. Third, collagen is a large molecule composed of about 100,000 atoms which is not able to pass through the cellular matrix of the skin.
In order to affect stability, the collagen molecule is successfully stabilized (held together) by areinforcing mechanism using hydroxyproline (a major component of the collagen protein). Hydroxy proline is a hydroxylated form of the amino acid proline that hydrogen bonds at each end to.
"It's by far the most stable collagen ever made," says Ron Raines, a University of Wisconsin-Madison professor of chemistry and biochemistry who led the study, published in the Jan. 12 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In order to retain bio activity, the collagen is isolated by a specialized extraction process under patent license No. 144584. This preserves the structural integrity of the collagen molecule, making it recognizable to the bio-chemical processes that use it.
In terms of absorption, collagen doesn't have to absorb all the way through skin to be usefull. Because the barrier of skin (the cellular matrix) is made of collagen, there is a possibility to unifying with the collagen barrier, so long as the the applied collagen is recognized, Bio-active collagen unifies with the barrier that is designed to keep everything out.
A collagen preparation designed by a specialized method of collagen extraction and 15 years research study, Baltic Collagen comes forward with a new value proposition to the quest for eternal youth. Originally invented by a Polish Chemist in 2006, Baltic Collagen inc. was founded in June of 2009 in the United States.
