Approach
The outermost layer of our skin is known as the epider-mis, or more accurately, the stratum corneum. As we age, this layer can become thin and weakened from environ-mental factors. As the stratum corneum weakens, water loss can increase through evaporation. By protecting this layer of skin, we can help to retain more moisture to support skin hydration. 
Collagen supplements cannot be vegan, as collagen can only be derived from animal sources. However, through proper supplementation we can improve the body’s ability to synthesize new collagen and protect collagen from damage.

 

Astaxanthin
AstaReal® astaxanthin is extracted from freshwater, green microalgae (Haematococcus pluvialis). This microalgae is first handpicked by a  technician to prepare a fresh culture of quality cells. The algae grows in photobioreactors operating indoors, where the algae is supplied with filtered air, triple-filtered water, quality nutrients and consistent light to spur growth. Once growth reaches a predetermined stage, the algae cells are subjected to high-illumination light, which converts the green chlorophyll to red astaxanthin. At the peak of astaxanthin content, the algae cells are harvested and the cellular walls are physically broken to extract the astaxanthin using a 100% solvent-free method. 

 

AstaReal astaxanthin is the most clinically studied brand worldwide. Currently, they have six clinical studies using servings of 2 mg to 12 mg per day, demonstrating that it increases collagen protection and synthesis, supports skin hydration and smoothness, enhances skin elasticity and reduces fine lines. AIM BioVivify provides 6 mg of AstaReal astaxanthin in each daily serving. 
In a clinical study conducted in 2016, 20 healthy women (ages 30-49) were supplemented with 3 mg of AstaReal astaxanthin per day for 8 weeks. The subjects that consumed 3 mg of astaxanthin daily improved skin moisture by 3%, skin elasticity by 18%, and skin texture and erythema (redness) by 16% versus the control group.   
In 2002, a published double-blind, placebo-controlled study found that AstaReal astaxanthin improved skin hydration. Sixteen healthy women (mean age 40) with dry skin were examined in the study. Those that consumed 2 mg of AstaReal astaxanthin for 4 weeks experienced improvement in skin hydration that was 17 times greater than the placebo group.

 

Collagen
Our skin contains specialized cells called fibroblasts that synthesize collagen. Collagen half-life in our bodies is only a few months, so we are always breaking down and creating new collagen. Within each fibroblast, amino acids are assembled by translation to create collagen alpha chains. The alpha chains are rich in the amino acids proline and glycine. In fact, every third position is glycine. These alpha chains are hydroxylated in the presence of vitamin C, which is important in providing structure to the collagen monomer. Once the chains hydroxylate, three chains can be associated together to create procollagen, which has a helical structure similar to the double helix of DNA. Once this procollagen is prepped, it can exit the fibroblast, at which point it is called a collagen monomer. These monomers can now create cross-linkages that give collagen its tensile strength using the amino acid lysine. BioVivify contains the amino acids L-lysine, glycine and L-proline. There is an important connection between astaxan-thin and vitamin C as it relates to collagen. Vitamin C is required to hydroxylate the alpha chains to improve structure and strength. In 2009, a study explored the viability of human skin fibroblast cells upon exposure to reactive oxygen species (ROS), a subset of free radicals. When the fibroblast cell is exposed to ROS, the cell itself can die. In this study, when the cell was first inoculated with AstaReal astaxanthin, the survival rate improved. Other antioxidants, including vitamin C, did not improve survival rate. It is theorized that astaxanthin is able to access cell membranes, thereby providing better protec-tion. If the cell was exposed to ROS, the cell died and thus it produced no collagen. Vitamin C alone could not protect the cell, so again no collagen could be produced. Only cells pre-inoculated with astaxanthin could survive ROS and allow collagen production at 80% of normal. However, when the cell was inoculated with both astax-anthin and vitamin C, the cell survived and produced 108% of normal collagen.3 BioVivify contains 90 mg of vitamin C, which is 100% of the daily value.

 

Keratin
Biotin, also called vitamin B7, boosts keratin produc-tion. Hair consists of 90% keratin and can be damaged by free radicals. This damage can cause hair breakage, split ends, rough cuticles and color loss. Biotin can fortify the hair follicle by boosting keratin. BioVivify contains 90 mcg of biotin, which is 300% of the daily value.


FAQs
Is there anyone who should not take BioVivify?
AIM BioVivify is formulated for adults and not recom-mended for children. Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing.


What is a complementary AIM product to BioVivify?
