Verisol® and Tendoforte® Collagen – double benefits for the body

VERISOL® – collagen that cares for your beauty

The impact of collagen on overall appearance is invaluable. Known as the “youth protein,” it is the primary structural component of the skin, constituting approximately 80% of its dry mass. As we age, collagen production slows down, leading to loss of firmness, sagging skin, and the formation of wrinkles. External factors such as environmental pollutants, ultraviolet radiation, as well as chronic conditions or daily habits like diet and skincare, also affect skin condition. While skincare products containing collagen are a good way to improve skin appearance, internal supplementation with bioactive collagen peptides VERISOL® – unlike topical products that only reach the external layers of the skin – influences collagen metabolism in the dermis, thereby reducing signs of ageing [1].

VERISOL® contributes not only to improving skin condition (reducing wrinkles and increasing elasticity) but also plays a role in improving the condition of nails and hair and reducing cellulite [1]. Here are the main benefits that supplementation with bioactive collagen peptides can bring:Increased skin elasticity

A study involving 69 women aged 35 to 55 showed that VERISOL® increases skin elasticity by up to 15% compared to the placebo group. This effect was noticeable after 4 weeks of supplementation with 2.5g of collagen daily. Interestingly, the improvement in skin condition persisted after 8 weeks of taking VERISOL® [2].

Reduction of wrinkles

A study involving over 100 women aged 45 to 65 indicated a significant reduction in wrinkles after just 4 weeks of supplementation with 2.5g of collagen per day. It was also shown that VERISOL® increased the concentration of pro-collagen in the skin by 60% [3].

Improvement of skin surface structure and reduction of cellulite

A study involving 105 women aged 25 to 50 showed that daily oral intake of 2.5g of VERISOL® significantly reduces cellulite. The first effects were visible after 3 months of supplementation, and after 6 months, a decrease in skin waviness of 8% was observed. It is worth noting that VERISOL® directly stimulates the formation of the extracellular matrix in the skin, which affects its effectiveness in improving the surface structure of the skin. Collagen is recognised by fibroblast cells in the dermal layer of the skin as collagen fragments, such as those formed as a result of its degradation. Therefore, cells are stimulated to increase collagen metabolism to balance its degradation [4].

Improvement of nail condition

It has been demonstrated that taking VERISOL® (2.5g/day) for 2 months resulted in a reduction in nail cracks and/or splitting. A decrease in the number of cracks (improvement in nail plate condition) of over 40% was observed after 6 months of supplementation. Moreover, nail growth significantly improved by 12% after just 3 months. 88% of participants noticed an improvement in the appearance of their nails after only 4 weeks of taking VERISOL® [5].

Increase in hair density

A study involving women aged 39 to 75 showed that taking VERISOL® contributed to a significant increase in hair thickness compared to placebo. It is believed that this is due to the influence of BPC collagen peptides on hair metabolism and their impact on improving microcirculation and blood flow (which may affect the metabolism of eyelash cells, leading to increased hair thickness). It is also speculated that collagen supplementation may contribute to increasing hair resistance to breakage – this results from the increase in hair strand thickness, leading to improvement in the textural and physical properties of the hair [6].

TENDOFORTE®, collagen for tendons and ligaments for athletes

Good musculoskeletal health is crucial for physical performance – not only in a sporting context but also in ensuring overall life comfort. Strong tendons and ligaments provide safety during exercise and are essential for recovery and quick return to training after injuries. TENDOFORTE® is a bioactive collagen peptide that supports the stimulation of biosynthesis of new extracellular matrix molecules, thereby contributing to maintaining optimal functionality of tendons and ligaments [7].

What benefits for the musculoskeletal system have been confirmed by collagen studies? Here are a few examples:

Improvement in ankle joint functionality

A study involving 50 physically active women and men with diagnosed ankle instability showed that taking 5 grams of TENDOFORTE® collagen peptides daily for 6 months significantly improved ankle stability and reduced the risk of sprains. A decrease in the frequency of recurrent ankle injuries was also observed with continued supplementation for another 3 months. Such action improves the quality of sports-related activities such as running, jumping, landing, or changing directions [9].

Acceleration of performance and return to running after Achilles tendon injury

Another study found that supplementation with bioactive collagen peptides combined with calf-strengthening exercises improved ankle joint condition and faster recovery time. The study involved 18 runners unable to train due to Achilles tendon pain. The first beneficial effects were observed after 3 months of collagen intake. After 6 months of supplementation (5g/day), almost 80% of participants regained their performance and returned to running [10].

Preventive and supportive action in tendon injury rehabilitation

Another study demonstrated that supplementation with specific collagen peptides (5g/day for 14 weeks) by physically active young men, combined with resistance training resulted in greater hypertrophy in tendon and muscle structures than when using training alone. An increase in the cross-sectional area (CSA) of the Achilles tendon and muscle thickness was observed. These results suggest that the use of bioactive collagen peptides can bring many benefits both in the prevention and rehabilitation of tendon injuries [11].

Collagen Beauty & Sport – take care of beauty and musculoskeletal system using one product

OSAVI’s newest food supplement contains patented and clinically tested bioactive collagen peptides: VERISOL® – improving the appearance of hair, skin, and nails – and TENDOFORTE® – supporting an active lifestyle. Collagen in powder form – thanks to excellent solubility and lack of taste and odour – is perfect as an addition to drinks, smoothies, and meals. The recommended daily serving is one scoop of the product (7.5g, including: 2.5g VERISOL® and 5g TENDOFORTE®). The supplement has a clean label, meaning it contains no additives. Highly purified bioactive collagen peptides will take care of both the condition of your tendons and ligaments and your radiant appearance.

It is also worth noting that Collagen Beauty & Sport complies with the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and does not contain any substances prohibited by this organisation. The studies were conducted at the Center for Preventive Doping Research at the German Sport University in Cologne, a laboratory accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA to conduct anti-doping control sample analysis in humans. The results clearly indicate that our collagens are DOPING FREE, therefore safe for athletes.
