Our active ingredients

Hydrolyzed collagen


Collagen is the protein that forms fibers, collagen fibers. Collagen is found in all animals, it is the most abundant component of skin and bone. Collagen is the protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bones and constitutes about 30% of the proteins in our body. In essence, it is the "glue" that holds everything together.


With age, the body produces less collagen and the first signs of aging begin to occur after 30 years. It is therefore appropriate intake of collagen from this age.


Nutrikosm includes in its marine hydrolyzed collagen formulations Peptan®. Peptan® is a product of high purity (more than 95% protein) and natural. Their peptide (type 1) are identical to those found in human bones and skin.


Peptan® reverses the effects of skin aging, increases the density of collagen in the skin, stimulates the synthesis of collagen and hyaluronic acid.


Phaseolamin


Phaseolamin is the generic name given to a series of proteins found in the seed of white bean. Phaseolamin is an inhibitor of the enzyme alpha-amylase. This enzyme is responsible to "break" the starch into smaller fragments, assimilable by the human body. Inhibiting the enzyme, the absorption of calories from starch is reduced, thereby reducing the caloric intake of the diet.


Vitamin A


Beta-carotene is the most abundant in nature and the most important carotenoid in the human diet. Beta-carotene is the precursor of vitamin A. Vitamin A or retinol, is a fat-soluble vitamin that is involved in the formation and maintenance of epithelial cells in bone growth, development, protection and regulation of skin and mucous. Prevents premature aging.

Vitamin C


LVitamin C, also called tocopherol is an essential nutrient because humans cannot synthesize it. It is the most important antioxidant and acts both outside and inside the cell. We must take daily in our diet since it is water-soluble so the body is not able to store it. The presence of vitamin C is required for many metabolic reactions in all animals and plants. Vitamin C plays a fundamental role in the formation of collagen so it is essential to have a skin in a perfect condition.

Coenzyme Q10


The Coenzyme Q10, CoQ10 or ubiquinone, is a liposoluble molecule, similar to vitamins, which is present in most eukaryotic cells, primarily in the mitochondria and participates in cellular respiration generating energy in the form of ATP.

 

During our youth the body generates the amount of coenzyme Q10 but this ability decreases with the age or when we are not in an optimal state of health.

 

Coenzyme Q10 in addition protects against oxidative stress and helps to reduce the "bad" cholesterol (LDL).
