There is growing interest in natural skin health and how best to naturally support healthy skin. What are emerging are novel nutrients that are providing exciting clinically studied benefits. In this interview Dr. Audrey Ross will discuss the benefits of several innovative products that are recent additions to Country Life’s Maxi Skin line of products.

Dr. Ross mentions the areas of improvement in skin health including hydration, elasticity and collagen formation.* The best way to explore skin nutrition is to identify what results you seek (be realistic) and look for the products that have been studied and shown to provide those types of benefits. Be consistent and take the supplements as recommended and for a reasonable length of time. To see long term improvement in skin you should consider 3 to 6 months

Skin Structure

This interview is largely about collagen and its role in skin health.  Collagen is the major supportive protein of skin, bones, cartilage, and connective tissue. Collagen is the main protein found in humans and makes up 70% to 80% of the skin (dry weight). Type 1 collagen is the most abundant form in the body.

The newest addition to the Maxi skin line is Maxi-Marine Collagen® + Astaxanthin. Dr. Ross describes why Country Life chose DNA verified marine collagen from wild caught deep sea salmon skin. With DNA verification you know what you are getting, pure and simple.  Marine collagen is Type 1.

This product also contains AstaReal® Astaxanthin (astaxanthin is considered one of nature’s most potent antioxidants).  AstaReal® Astaxanthin is USA grown and has an impressive portfolio of clinical science. I have an interview with Karen Hecht, Scientific Affairs Manage for AstaReal®. Learn more about the amazing benefits and listen to her interview here.  Using best in class raw materials is the best way to create quality supplements.

Dr. Ross explains the differences between marine, bovine and chicken collagen. Why might you want a particular type or perhaps all three types? It depends on each individual to explore the possibilities.

Another unique product is Maxi-Skin® Rescue. Maxi-Skin® Rescue is a vegan fruit-based beauty supplement using a clinically studied French melon concentrate along with French grape seed extract, zinc and vitamin C. 

Additionally, understanding the importance of biotin when it comes to skin health, Country Life has developed two delicious vegan biotin sprays.

Distinctions Matter

Distinctions Matter

This discussion is such a good example of the concept that distinctions matter. When I say distinctions matter it is to suggest that in all things you will have better outcomes when you make better choices. Making better choices comes from seeing the distinctions between one thing and another. When consumers make more informed choices the chances of success and satisfaction are greater.

When we look to build healthy skin from the inside out, it requires that we understand something about the nutrients we are taking and what the science has revealed. How do we know a product works? How do we know a product is safe? How do we know how much to take and for how long? How do we know that a product is what the company says it is? These are valid questions as consumers. These are valid questions for a manufacturer like Country Life to ask when seeking raw materials to put in their supplements. It takes a quality company to create quality products.
