How Do Peptides Work?
Amino Acids link together to form chains. The longer chains become proteins. Peptides are fragments of proteins and work as cell communications to perform specific cell functions. The skin's most important protein is COLLAGEN. By incorporating peptides that stimulate collagen production, such as the Hibiscus Peptides in Advanced Optimizer, you can see anti-aging benefits for firmer, more youthful appearance.
Skin is made up of structural proteins like collagen. Collagen is essential for keeping our skin strong and firm. In our younger years, we produce plenty of collagen to keep our skin plump and youthful. However, our body's production of collagen starts to slow down in our mid-to-late 20's. Then, collagen production drastically drops after age 30 and can drop 1 - 2 % every year after.
As our collagen decreases, we are left with thinner skin, less elasticity,
