At Pura Collagen, we only use ingredients that have been clinically tested through several scientific studies. Below we’ve collated the main points from two that best explain the science behind our revolutionary glow+ collagen powder
and how it affects nails and cellulite following both short and long-term use. These studies both focus on the effects on the body following the ingestion of VERISOL®, which is the collagen for hair skin and nails that we use in our glow+ collagen powder. For extra resources on how VERISOL® and our glow+ product affects anti-aging properties of the skin, have a look at this page of scientific studies explaining how specific collagen peptides benefit human skin physiology and reduce wrinkles.
Improving Nail Growth and Reducing Symptoms of Brittle Nails
The goal of this first study
was to investigate whether daily oral supplementation with VERISOL® collagen peptides alleviate the symptoms of brittle nails and improves nail growth rate. In this open-label, single-centre trial, 25 participants took VERISOL® Bioactive Collagen Peptides® once a day for 24 weeks, followed by a 4 week off-therapy period. Nail growth rate, frequency of cracked and/or chipped nails, an evaluation of symptoms and global clinical improvement score of brittle nails were assessed by a physician both during the treatment and 4 weeks after it ended. This study found that VERISOL® treatment promoted an increase of 12% nail growth rate and a decrease of 42% in the frequency of brittle nails. Additionally, 64% of participants achieved a global clinical improvement in brittle nails and 88% of participants experienced their improvements continuing 4 weeks post-treatment. This study concluded that the daily ingestion of VERISOL® increased nail growth and improved brittle nails in conjunction with a noticeable decrease in the frequency of brittle nails.
Reducing the Appearance of Cellulite with BMI Consideration
The second study
relevant to glow+ is a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, in which we investigated the efficacy of VERISOL® on the cellulite treatment of standard weight and overweight women. In total, 105 women aged 24-50 years with moderate cellulite were randomly assigned to orally receive either a daily dosage VERISOL® or a placebo over a 6-month period. In addition, skin waviness, dermal density and the length of subcutaneous borderline were assessed. VERISOL® treatment led to a statistically significant decrease in the degree of cellulite and a reduced skin waviness on thighs in standard weight women. Moreover, dermal density was significantly improved compared to the placebo. The efficacy of VERISOL® treatment was also confirmed in overweight women. The results of the study demonstrated that regular ingestion of VERISOL® over a period of 6 months led to a clear improvement of the skin appearance in women suffering from moderate cellulite. Based on the current data, it can be concluded that a long-term therapy with orally administered Bioactive Collagen Peptides® leads to an improvement of cellulite and has a positive impact on overall skin health.
