In addition to Collagen, La Jeunesse features hyaluronic acid – as we age this vital, protective agent in our body declines and decreasing levels of hyaluronic acid are known to accompany the ageing process. By our mid 40’s the synthesis of hyaluronic acid is roughly half that required by our body. Half of the body’s hyaluronic acid is located in the collagen of the skin and it helps retain over 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of the skin, making this a fantastic moisturiser and resulting in plumped skin, increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is also a key component of synovial fluid and cartilage, tendons and ligaments and is essential for maintaining healthy joints.

Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation. Plus, vitamins B2, B3 and biotin, contribute to the maintenance of normal skin.

Antioxidant vitamins E, C and riboflavin (Vit. B2) contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Benefits of added Aloe Vera
Collagen cannot work its magic alone. To ensure the true efficiency of collagen the appropriate amino acids must also be present. Amino acids are the basic structural building units of proteins that bond with collagen and ensure optimum absorption. Many amino acids can be made by the body itself, however, 8 of them (called essential amino acids) must come from what you put into your body. Aloe Vera is an excellent source of all 8 amino essential acids and a further 14 'secondary' amino acids. Vitamins must be brought into the body through diet and must be continually sustained as many of them cannot be stored. Aloe Vera also contains important vitamins including A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and E.
