ORAL COLLAGEN & PLACENTA
Collagen and hyaluronic acid are compounds in our skin and other connective tissues. Hyaluronic acid is needed to bind collagen with elastin, which are fibers that give our skin its stretch. Our body naturally breaks down and recycles collagen and hyaluronic acid on a continuous basis but excessive sun exposure, injury and nutritional deficiencies can create reduced availability of collagen and hyaluronic acid and result in connective tissue degradation, which shows as wrinkles, thinning cartilage, brittle hair and other common signs of aging. Some supplements may slow the breakdown of collagen and hyaluronic acid, whereas others may help stimulate their production.
Collagen is a protein found mostly in fibrous tissues such as skin, ligaments and tendons, but it’s also abundant in cartilage, bone and blood vessels. All connective tissue, but especially skin, is engaged in a constant cycle of repair and regeneration. The rate of collagen breakdown significantly increases after the age of 40. Taking measures to boost our collagen production and reduce its breakdown is important for maintaining healthy collagen balance in aging skin.

What is an IV Nutrient Therapy?
IV nutrient therapy is the process of giving vital nutrients to the body via the bloodstream by accessing a vein in the arm with a small needle. The nutrients are administered and dripped slowly taking between 30 to 45 minutes and as much as 3 hours, depending on the solution being given. Most IV drips take one to two hours. Some IV Clinics also offer booster drips, which are administered in half the usual time.
