Gretchen Barretto' Secret to Young Skin: Collagen Drink

Just seen this on Rated K: Gretchen Barretto's secret fountain of youth is her collagen drink. I wasn't able to see what brand of collagen drink she takes, but for the uninitiated, here is what you need to know about collagen drinks:

Collagen is a very important component in our body that fortifies the skin's structure. It comes in five major types, but the most important of these five are the Type I and Type IV.

Studies show that drinking collagen supplements helps in the enhancement of collagen development in the body. There are few researches that back others' belief that these drinks have anti-aging benefits.

This enzyme is naturally generated by the body through some process. Our body has enough supply of collagen to keep our skin young and supple. However, as we grow old, the collagen deposits in our body diminish, thus the body's aging process.

Aside from supplements, you can boost the collagen supply in your body by eating foods rich in antioxidants. Foods such as green and leafy veggies, omega 3-rich fish, avocados, fruits and red pepper could boost your body's collagen production.

I'm sure Gretchen Barretto's statement will make ladies looking for this supplement drink. Here are some collagen drink products available online:

Dr. Venessa's Formulas - Anti-Aging 3 Collagen Berry, 600 g powder - pure source of type I, II and III collagen, used in research centers with significant results.

I thought laughter and exercise are the only key ingredients to looking young and that collagen can only be found in facial creams and soaps. Thanks for the info.
