Little did I know 30 years ago that collagen and elastin in my skin was already starting to deplete. In fact, I am not sure I was even aware of collagen so long ago.
Over the past decade research into collagen production and depletion has made us all aware of how important this protein is to our skin. Known as the scaffolding of the skin, this once abundant protein is what keeps young, healthy skin, looking plump and wrinkle free. If the loss of collagen was not enough, hyaluronic acid, nature’s internal moisturiser, also declines with age.
While years ago, we would have just treated our skin topically, we now have targeted supplements to boast collagen and hyaluronic acid production internally.
Higher Nature created the Aeterna Gold range to offer both topical and ingestible solutions to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 5 keys products with high grade ingredients to work alongside a healthy diet and lifestyle.
The pure hydrolysed marine collagen used in this beauty drink is sourced from sustainable fish. The easily digestible type I and type III hydrolysed marine collagen is a match for the skin which is 80% type I and 20% type III. The collagen in the Beauty Drink Powder is combined with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, giving you a triple hit of the most powerful ingredients to help fight the signs of visible ageing. The tasteless powder easily dissolves in water and can also be added to juice or smoothies. Best taken before bed when the skin is in repair mode.

Higher Nature have used hyaluronic acid of an exceptionally low molecular weight in their Aeterna Gold Hyaluronic Acid Capsules, this increases the chance of absorption. This clever ingredient that’s capable of retaining 1000 times its own weight in water, is what keeps our skin looking plump and well hydrated. Added to the hyaluronic acid is Vitamin C which helps aid collagen production as well as protecting cells against oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant which helps fight against free radical damage in the skin. It has the potential to slow the signs of ageing, improve skin condition and protect against UV damage. This powerful pink carotenoid is derived from freshwater algae and helps protect plants from sun damage. The same principle works within the skin and may be particularly beneficial during the summer months.
