Lamberts Colladeen Derma Plus
Colladeen® Derma Plus contains one of the highest levels of anthocyanidins (plant flavonoids or PCOs) at 320mg per two tablets from extracts of grapeseed and bilberries, alongside green tea leaf and a full 6mg of pure free-form lutein.
Colladeen® Derma Plus is specially formulated to support the health of skin and increase the body’s natural defences against sun damage. The formula provides the same strength anthocyanidins as in our Maximum Strength Colladeen®. Anthocyanidins are a group of flavonoid compounds found in dark skinned fruits, berries and even pine bark.
Scientists studying these particular plant compounds have focused much of their work around the role they play in helping to support collagen, the tough protein that gives skin its elasticity. Both our Colladeen® products are the most potent anthocyanidin formulas available, providing a full 160mg of anthocyanadins per tablet. Many similar products provide less than 20mg per tablet!
Lamberts have also included two further ‘skin loving’ nutrients in Colladeen® Derma Plus, namely lutein and green tea extracts. These nutrients have been included because research indicates that lutein, a well known carotenoid, may play a protective role against the damaging effects of sunlight on skin. They also included a significant level of pure natural lutein in the formula to reflect the level used in a recent study. There’s also a relevant level of green tea extract because of its well known antioxidant properties and antioxidants are known to help neutralise the free radicals generated by sun damage to skin.
Research has shown all of these to be powerful antioxidants helping to block the action of the damaging effects of free radicals generated by sunlight. Additionally anthocyanidins have been identified as having an important role in maintaining the health of collagen, which is a protein responsible for the structure and firmness of skin.
