In an ideal world, you’d get all the supplements you need from the food you eat. Unfortunately, many factors including the increase in processed foods and a decline in nutrient content in our fruits, vegetables and grains mean we need an even better - and often extra supply of vitamins and minerals to help the body process food and stay healthy and nourished.
Let’s have a look at the vitamins that are essential for keeping us feeling young and vibrant.
Everyone shouts about vitamin C for its ability to protect against colds and flu, but this potent antioxidant can also improve the skin's texture and appearance. Researchers have found that vitamin C can stimulate collagen production which can, in turn, help reduce fine lines and help the skin look plump and firm. It’s also a potent antioxidant that neutralises free radical damage and prevents the production of pigmentation.
The problem with vitamin D is, is that it doesn’t occur naturally in a lot of foods. We also get Vitamin D from the sun but what with the British weather, we don’t get as much of this sunshine vitamin as we think. It’s no wonder we’re lacking - and this vitamin is essential to support many body processes, including helping to repair skin damage and maintaining a healthy immune system . Vitamin D also supports heart health and bone health, which is vital for ageing and women going through menopause and post-menopause who tend to be more prone to osteoporosis.
Omega-3 is a polyunsaturated fatty acid renowned for its anti-inflammatory effects. It’s essential for cardiovascular, joint and brain health. Omega-3 is also important for healthy hormone production and can help to lower blood sugar levels, which results in better stability of hormones. Studies also show Omega-3 can reduce the number of stress hormones circulating in the body, which can accelerate ageing and inflammation. It is also an essential omega to help improve the health and hydration of hair, skin and nails.
Vitamin B complex is composed of eight B vitamins; B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid) and B12 (cobalamin). Each of these essential vitamins contributes to good health - but the problem here is that B vitamins are water-soluble which means that your body cannot store them. Therefore you need a continuous supply in the form of food or supplements. If you don’t have enough especially B12 you may suffer from rashes and dry skin, redness, and inflammation. Most vitamin B also plays a huge role in cell reproduction, which can heal skin damage and improve the skin’s elasticity, texture, and tone.
There are two amino acids in the protein collagen — proline and glycine — both are essential for healthy joints, bones, muscles, and tendons. They will also help your skin to retain its firm appearance. A study published in Skin Pharmacology and Physiology investigated the effects of collagen peptides on the skin and found that those who consumed collagen showed a huge improvement in skin elasticity compared to those who took a placebo. Collagen makes up approximately 70% of skin and is a vital component of skin elasticity and that youthful look in the skin, so we recommend taking 4 Correxiko collagen capsules in the morning, followed by 2 rounded tablespoons of Correxiko collagen powder in food or drink throughout the day.
Vitamin E is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant that helps protect our skin from free radical damage. Researchers also believe that this vitamin can also help with reducing the appearance of scars and can help with immune function and overall cell function too.Inside each capsule you’ll find double-hydrolysed Correxiko Marine Collagen, boosted with moisture-boosting Hyaluronic Acid, antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, anti-inflammatory Zinc, healing enhancing Manganese and skin firming Selenium for maximum effectiveness, better absorption and a complete all-round anti-ageing effect. Every ingredient in this advanced formula is chosen for its skin health properties and its ability to work in complete synergy with collagen for optimal revitalisation.
