Pop a pill to stop a wrinkle? Could it be? The British makers of a new capsule have taken extracts from collagen-boosting foods, like berries, nuts, tomatoes and others with omega-3 fatty acids, to create a new formula that seems to work deep in the skin to reduce surface lines by as much as 30 percent within 14 weeks. Other ingredients in the drug include vitamins C and E and isoflavones from soybeans, which are proven to promote healthy cell function, reduce inflammation and trigger the skin to make more natural collagen.
Unilever, the food and cosmetics company behind the capsule, performed four studies on 480 post-menopausal women. The results revealed 10 percent shallower crow’s-feet wrinkles on average, with some volunteers seeing as much as a 30 percent difference, according to NewScientist. Within the next month, Unilever plans to launch the pill in 44 of its spas in Europe, Canada and Spain, where approval isn’t required.
Peer-reviewed trials are the next step to clear up any doubts that a pill could literally erase the signs of aging. If a pill could truly boost collagen and smooth wrinkles, would you be willing to take it?
