New Research Shows Collagen Peptides Improves Cellulite

New research published in the Journal of Medicinal Food suggests Versiol, a collagen peptide developed by Gelita, improved the skin appearance of women suffering from moderate cellulite.

In the double-blind study, a daily oral dose of 2.5 g of the collagen peptide or a placebo was given to 105 women between the ages of 24 and 50.

After three months, cellulite score was reduced in the collagen group.  At the end of the six-month study, a 9% mean reduction over placebo was found in women with a normal body mass index (BMI). A 4% mean reduction was also recorded in participants with a BMI higher than 25.

Researchers also observed, on average, a reduction of 8% in terms of skin waviness after six months of supplementation. Those in the normal BMI study group had an even more pronounced decrease of 11.1%.

After treatment, the borderline length between dermis and the subcutis was noticeably shorter and a strengthening of the connective tissues, indicated the skin tissues became more compact.
