This is in comparison to Zupafood for SKIN, which includes a range of other beneficial ingredients along with Collactive™ Marine Collagen. Zupafood also contains Green Tea Extract to deliver a natural boost to energy levels and an antioxidant-rich fruit extract blend. These added ingredients may offer support to other body systems, in addition to the skin.
We have formulated Skin-Support for customers who prefer taking collagen in capsule form, rather than in a powder form, as it is in Zupafood for SKIN. It also contains a lower dose of Collactive™ and is therefore a more economical option.
Yes absolutely. You can double or even triple the dose of Skin-Support safely without any side effects. This is great for individuals who really need that extra boost.
Yes, all Xtendlife products have been formulated to be taken in combination with each other and there are no issues with doing so. In fact, in many cases, taking them in combination can enhance benefits. We have put together some supplement protocols on our main product page which you can refer to.
The word collagen is derived from the Greek word "kola" which means glue. Collagen gives skin its natural strength, elasticity and resilience. Marine collagen contains the amino acid proline which is a critical building block for the body's synthesis of collagen.
Scientific studies show that more than 90% of the collagen found in the body is Collagen Type 1 & 3. The protein composition consists of nineteen amino acids responsible for the growth and maintenance of the body with unusually high percentages of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which are all found in the skin and muscle. Collagen Type 2 protein consists of eighteen amino acids, which amino acid profiles parallel the profile of the joint cartilage.
Collagen Type 1 & 3 and Collagen Type 2 should not be combined due the types having different amino acid profiles. If taken together, the two proteins will bind and form a complete protein and the body will not recognize it as collagen. It is recommended that if you want to take both sources of collagen protein, take them at least an hour apart from one another.
Skin-Support is free from gluten, dairy, soy and peanuts. However, it does contain ingredients sourced from fish.
No, we do not recommend this. The only product we recommend during this time is our Omega 3/DHA fish oil, which has valuable properties to support both the health of the mother and baby.
Fish oil is highly recommended by many medical professionals during pregnancy and breastfeeding to help support infant brain development, as well as systemic organ growth. It can also play a valuable role in supporting the post-natal mood and brain function of the mother. As the baby draws from the mother's precious stores of DHA, they can easily become depleted, therefore supporting levels with a supplement such as Omega 3/DHA fish oil is very wise.
