Aging prematurely? Reclaim your youth with this collagen trick

For all the searching we’ve done for a “fountain of youth”… we haven’t had A CLUE about what actually causes the visible signs of aging.

That is, until now.

According to just-published research, your skin cells are engaged in a kind of “survival of the fittest” competition with each other.

Their level of “fitness”… and their chances for survival… are determined by a special type of collagen.

Unfortunately, we lose this necessary protein over time.

But there’s a way to stimulate its production… even AFTER it’s become depleted… with one simple, anti-aging compound.

It not only FORCES your collagen levels to REBOUND… but it also makes sure they STAY perfect!

Set the clock to run in REVERSE

Now, you already know that collagen keeps your skin soft and supple, with enough elasticity to spring back into shape.

Without it, your skin can dry out… sag… and wrinkle.

But there’s more than one type of collagen…

And the latest research shows that maintaining a youthful look requires collagen XVII (a.k.a. collagen 17).

When there’s plenty of it, a reaction is triggered… and “old” and “weak” cells are OVERPOWERED.

Your damaged or otherwise “unfit” cells are dumped and replaced… and your young, strong cells thrive and reproduce!

That type of cell “turnover” is also how your skin heals itself from wounds.
But as you get older, your supply of collagen 17 becomes depleted…

And that triggered reaction is NOWHERE to be found.

Your WEAKER cells replicate, despite the fact they’re more likely to get damaged… and less likely to heal properly.

When your healthy cells are OUTNUMBERED, it’s IMPOSSIBLE to put your best face forward.

Fortunately, there’s a natural compound that ZEROES in on collagen 17 and puts it to work… even when it’s been TRYING to quit on you.

It’s called apocynin – and it was first identified all the way back in 1883.

It wasn’t until 1908 that it was isolated from the roots of Canadian hemp (Apocynum cannabinum)

Of course, the cultivation, harvesting, and use of hemp has been SUPPRESSED for so long in this country, it’s been IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to get until recently.

Fortunately, apocynin has since been found in other plants… though not without other challenges.

In 1971, it was discovered in “kukti” (Picrorhiza kurroa) – a GROSSLY under-researched herb that’s been used so widely in Ayurvedic treatments, it’s now nearly EXTINCT.

You can find apocynin in coral plant (Jatropha multifida)… but ALL parts of it are considered POISONOUS.

Thank goodness apocynin can ALSO be found in vanilla beans (Vanilla planifolia)!

This aromatic compound can make your skin aging do an about-face… but that’s not all.

It’s also known as a SAVIOR for weakened cartilage, making it a natural way to beat back arthritis.

Since it’s also a powerful antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and reduces inflammation, it also exhibits neuroprotective properties, too.
