What is Totally Derma Nutraceutical Collagen Drink Supplement?
Totally Derma is an Anti-Ageing Nutraceutical Drink Supplement that works from the INSIDE to stimulate the body’s optimum production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, addressing both the aesthetic (physical) signs of ageing and the underlying physiological processes. Totally Derma is a DAILY ingestible skin drink for a double pronged approach to anti-ageing. Internal AND Topical.
Totally Derma Skin Drink is hypoallergenic and is formulated with the manufacturing quality standards set by the pharmaceutical industry. Totally Derma Drink Supplement contains scientifically proven bio-available ingredients. Drink it once a day (preferably at night) for a lifelong anti-ageing skin health investment.
What does Totally Derma Collagen Drink Supplement contain?
Totally Derma Skin Drink contains 10,000 mg. of Arthred®, a Hydrolysed Collagen amino acid peptide and 210 mg. patented Hyaluronic Acid powder. Totally Derma Skin Drink is formulated with the highest quality and best absorbed nutritional components (including Vitamin C, grape seed extract, green tea extract and alpha lipoic acid) for the promotion of collagen synthesis and to repair, maintain and support skin volume, elasticity, density and hydration.
Hydrolysed means ‘pre-digested’, or in other words it is a molecular size that reaches the small intestine undamaged by digestive enzymes and is optimally absorbed there.
What is Arthred® hydrolysed collagen?
Totally Derma Drink Supplement contains Arthred® hydrolysed collagen peptides, which is produced by enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen from the hides of German cattle under controlled conditions. Arthred® contains a highly bioavailable form of collagen. Clinical studies show 95% absorption. It is the tiny molecular size which is key to this absorption. The collagen in Totally Derma Skin Beverage is 3 kdaltons, compared with around 70 kdaltons for most collagen supplements.
Because it is sourced from animal collagen, the amino-acid composition of the peptides resembles that of human collagen. This is different to collagen from marine and whey sources which have a different chemical structure.
Totally Derma Drink Supplement has a high content of the amino acids, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine as is characteristic of collagen. The predominant amino acids in Arthred® hydrolysed collagen – glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, lysine, and hydroxylysine – comprise approximately 50% of the substance, by weight. Clinical studies show that within an hour of consumption of Arthred, hydroxyproline, hydroxylysine, glycine, and proline all rise considerably. With Hydroxyproline (being the main component of collagen fibres) rising an impressive 550%. These amino acids are transported to collagen containing tissue such as skin, hair, cartilage and bone and stimulate collagen production.
Arthred®’s origin is a Pharma-grade, physiological product for joint health. This does not mean that Arthred only stimulates collagen type II for cartilage (which it does) it is also shown to promote collagens type I & IV which obviously benefit skin.
How do the active ingredients in Totally Derma Skin Drink address the ageing process?
Collagen is an essential component in skin, providing integrity, firmness and elasticity. Collagen production is essential for supple, healthy, youthful looking skin and plays a crucial role in retarding the aging process of skin. Approximately 80% of young and healthy skin is made up of collagen (type I). However, our skin gradually loses the ability to regenerate naturally and produces less collagen in our mid-30s. Around 35 and 55 years of age, the level of collagen drops to 40% resulting in the loss of firmness and the formation of wrinkles.
Does Totally Derma Skin Drink have any other benefits other than improving the skin on my face and body?
Yes! As Totally Derma Skin Drink is an ingested product that circulates in the blood stream the ingredients are supplied to ALL the skin in your body – not just the face. Also it is proven to stimulate and replace other collagens in the body such as cartilage in joints. People often notice their aches and pains improve in their joints and spine after a few weeks. It is also beneficial for hair, nails, bone density and general dryness of mucous membranes. Therefore, it is a good all round product for menopausal women especially.
Where is Totally Derma Skin Drink manufactured?
It is formulated by Boley Nutraceuticals Ltd. and manufactured by world class scientific quality and innovation leaders, Allergy Research Group®, based in California, US.
Does the powdered formula affect its absorbability?
Totally Derma does not need to be dissolved in a solution to be absorbed, it can be taken as a powder on its own or for taste reasons, mixed into a drink. Neither form of consumption affects its absorbability. It is still over 95% absorbed, no matter how it is taken. A single dose of Totally Derma contains the equivalent of 26 capsule alternatives.
When is the best time to take Totally Derma Skin Drink?
Drink it before bed as this is the best time to boost collagen levels. The majority of collagen synthesis takes place in your first couple of hours of sleep so it’s best to combine that with Totally Derma Skin Drink.
Can Totally Derma Skin Drink be mixed with other drinks?
It can be mixed with water, juice, milk, or even mixed into food such as yoghurt. Make sure you do not heat it – it is not to be mixed in hot drinks or food.
When will I see visible results?
You should see results in 2–3 weeks for improvements in skin hydration and texture, and up to 12 weeks for a visible increase in skin volume and density. However, the results will not be the same for everyone due to factors such as genetics, smoking, sun exposure, pollution, stress, nutrition, lifestyle and daily skin regimen all affecting the skin’s integrity.
How long do I need to take Totally Derma for?
A tub of Totally Derma Nutraceutical Skin Drink contains one month’s supply. We recommend using the product for a minimum of 3 months as it can take up to 90 days for new collagen to develop. Longer periods of Totally Derma consumption will increase its beneficial results. TOTALLY DERMA can be considered as a regular part of your daily routine, to repair and maintain skin’s volume, density, elasticity and hydration.
Can I consume Totally Derma daily alongside other aesthetic treatments and skincare?
Totally Derma is a stand-alone nutritional skin supplement which may also improve topical stimulatory treatments available at medical aesthetic clinics such as peels, micro-needling, laser resurfacing and non-surgical facelifts. Thus, ingesting this nutraceutical formulation alongside a topical treatment can be a two-pronged approach to promoting collagen synthesis and anti-ageing of the skin, by tackling skin rejuvenation both internally and externally.
How does Totally Derma differ from other skin drinks?
Totally Derma Skin Drink contains 200% and 40% more collagen than some other skin drinks (*in the form of 10,000 mg. of therapeutic dosage Arthred hydrolysed animal sourced collagen).
Totally Derma Skin Beverage contains a therapeutic dosage of 210 mg. Hyaluronic Acid.
