Botox stands for Botulinum Toxin. … Botox doesn’t just instantly kill you as soon as it is taken into the body. It has known very dangerous effects, but these are known to reveal themselves over time. Larger amounts of Botox can be immediately fatal though.
And this is why you should take collagen instead….
Even though collagen is naturally occurring in the human body, it’s essential to supplement it as we age because collagen production slows down significantly as we get older. Actually, after age 30, collagen production begins to significantly decline. By age 45, collagen production decreases 25%, and by age 60 it decreases by more than 50%. As our body’s collagen production slows down, we begin to notice saggy, aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and weakened joint cartilage.
There was a large study in early 2014 conducted by the University of Kiel’s Department of Dermatology that showed 65% of women having significantly elevated levels of collagen and reduction in wrinkles after 8 weeks of taking a collagen supplement.
In two double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, researchers found 8 weeks of collagen supplementation lead to a 12% increase in skin moisture, a 9% increase in collagen density, and a 31.2% reduction in collagen degradation when compared to the placebo group.
Now if you’re thinking this sounds too good to be true, numerous experimental studies have shown that hydrolyzed collagen is readily absorbed by the body and efficiently transported to the deepest layers of your skin where it works its magic.
