The Collagen-Estrogen Connection
Estrogen is responsible for the glow of healthy, young looking skin as it promotes and preserves collagen. As we age, the influence of estrogen declines resulting in loss of collagen in our skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. VENeffect is formulated with a unique and powerful blend of 100% natural phytoestrogens to enhance collagen and improve elasticity in skin. The result: VENeffect reverses the signs of hormonal aging to preserve and restore the healthy glow of skin at peak hormonal vitality.
Science has long proven that estrogen plays a vital role in support of total body collagen. Collagen is the main connective tissue that holds us together. It is a vital component of most structures in the body and plays a role in the support of skin, muscle and bone. Estrogen supports collagen through its receptors, tiny "locks" that exist all over the body which are activated by "keys": the estrogen molecules. These receptors are known to exist in skin; in fact, there are more estrogen receptors in the skin of the face than the skin of many other parts of the body. This is evidenced by the glow in a woman's face during times of peak hormonal vitality.
As a woman experiences hormonal aging (the result of declining estrogen effect from its peak in her mid-twenties), collagen support plateaus, and then begins to decline at age 30, accelerating with peri-menopause and menopause. This is known to result in bone loss, as the density in bone decline when the collagen framework lessens. What is lesser known is that the same effect is demonstrated in skin, resulting in loss of collagen volume and elasticity beginning in the late twenties. This describes what is now referred to as hormonal aging, something that women experience uniquely as we have programmed hormonal decline.
The solution for skin is to offer another "key" with the phytoestrogens in the VENeffect Anti-Aging Skin Care line. The "VENeffect Advice" section of this site provides tools to help offset the effects of hormonal aging, not just on skin, but also on mood, metabolism, bone, and overall health.
