Beauty sleep by Fine Nutrition's Night Collagen
Are You Getting Your Beauty Sleep?
You know how important good nutrition and exercise are for your health and beauty, but do you know sleep is crucial too? When you doze you're getting more than rest. Sleep researchers say your body is healing and repairing itself. For this reason, dermatologists often suggest using your most "active" skin regimens before bed.
Beauty Sleep - the science
Beauty sleep is not a myth. Early in the nightime sleep cycle, people typically have a surge in growth hormone. This period of deep sleep, stages 3 and 4 sleep, contributes to what people call "beauty sleep" as secretion of growth hormone helps repair and rebuild body tissues like skin, muscle and bone. Many of the body’s cells also show increased production and reduced breakdown of proteins during deep sleep. Since proteins are the building blocks needed for cell growth and for repair of damage from factors like stress and ultraviolet rays, deep sleep may truly be "beauty sleep."
Increased growth hormone release is believed to be linked to the fasting state which develops in human sleep. There is evidence that skin cells regenerate faster at night than during the day. Cell division happens throughout the day, but peaks around 2 am. This is literally renewal and rejuvenation during sleep. The peak in cell division happens even if you stay awake at night, while the surge in growth hormone doesn't.
What happens if you don't get your beauty sleep?
It is not just lack of sleep that negatively affects body fat percentage and the risk of chronic disease—poor sleep quality does as well. Deep sleep also helps to negate the bad effects of cortisol. Growth hormone naturally decreases with age and also with increased abdominal fat, leading to a viscious cycle of fatigue, excess stress hormone and increased abdominal fat.
Activity in parts of the brain that control emotions, decision-making processes, and social interactions is drastically reduced during deep sleep, suggesting that this type of sleep may help people maintain optimal emotional and social functioning while they are awake. This is another benefit of beauty sleep.
During sleep the whole body, including the face, perspires more. This moisture on the skin smooths out wrinkles. Some cosmetics make your face looks better by making the skin more moist. Sleep is a natural moisturizer - perspiration during sleep is a natural skin treatment.
Stress has detrimental effects on skin tone; it causes alopecia areata, psoriasis, and atopic dematitis. Chronic stress harms the body's ability to repair itself. Sleep deprivation applies stress to the body and leads to unhealthy appearance.
Job-related fatigue, stress, and diet are some causes of skin problems. A survey conducted by a beauty magazine found that a third of women are likely to have skin problems from lack of sleep. As women become more active in society, the number of women with less sleep is believed to be increasing. In this environment, we believe a good night sleep and proper intake of beauty dietary supplements are important to keep skin beautiful for busy women. That is why Fine Nutrition Japan developed Night Collagen specifically to address this problem.

Main Ingredients of Night Collagen
1. Fish Collagen (2,000 mg)
-Collagen is a type of protein. Fibrous in nature, it connects and supports other bodily tissues, such as skin, bone, tendons, muscles, and cartilage. Some people refer to collagen as the glue that holds the body together. Without it, the body would, quite literally, fall apart.
-Collagen production in our bodies diminishes with age resulting to wrinkles, taking Collagen supplements promotes skin firmness and gives skin a natural lift
2. Royal Jelly (1 mg)
-An excellent source of nutrients and a very rich source of proteins and contains eight essential amino acids, important fatty acids, sugars, sterols and phosphorous compounds as well as acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is needed to transmit nerve messages from cell to cell. Too little of this compound makes individuals prone to Alzheimer's disease. It contains gamma globulin, known to stimulate the immune system and fight off infections. It is particularly useful for its B-complex contents, including B1, B2, B6, B12, biotin, folic acid, and inositol. Royal jelly is high in the B vitamin pantothenic acid, recognized for its ability to reduce stress levels. It also supplies the minerals, calcium, copper, iron, phosphorous, potassium, silicon and sulfur.
-Although royal jelly has been traditionally known to prolong youthfulness and improve the skin beauty, evidence indicates that this substance increases energy, alleviates anxiety, sleeplessness, moodiness, memory loss, and bolsters the immune system.
-Royal jelly is also rich in nucleic acids, RNA and DNA. Gelatin, another significant component, is one of the precursors of collagen, which is another component of royal jelly. Collagen is an anti-aging element that keeps the skin looking smooth and youthful.
3. Glycine (300 mg)
-Glycine is assumed to control sleep rhythm. Quality sleep is considered to be more important than its length of time. As production of growth hormone which constructs protein in the skin is increased to the highest during sleep.
-It is further found to be useful in aiding the absorption of calcium in the body.
It helps in retarding degeneration of muscles since it helps to supply extra creatine in the body.
-The glycine amino acid is also used by the nervous system and its function as an inhibitory neurotransmitter makes it important to help prevent epileptic seizures and it is also used in the treatment of manic depression and hyperactivity.
4. GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) (10 mg)
-GABA improves sleep cycles leading to more restful sleeping. GABA has powerful stabilizing effects on blood pressure. GABA is a very effective analgesic, eliminating pain from chronic conditions such as arthritis and lower back pain. GABA supplements can help to relieve the intensity of pain. They may also lessen pain-related nerve impulses.
5. Hyaluronic Acid ( 1 mg)
- Hyaluronic acid is a well-known ingredient for beauty as well as Collagen. It gives your skin moisture lost from aging.
6. Yeast Extract ( 80 mg)
-Yeast Extract which contains Glutathione intimately related with hepatic function improvement, has an effect that changes spot-causing melamine pigment from black to normal skin color. It is used for detoxification and whitening.
7. Pearl Coix Extract (10 mg)
-Pearl coix is good for beautiful skin as it helps improve skin texture and gives skin a luminous glow like a pearl.
8. Resveratrol (0.5 mg)
-Resveratrol is a naturally occurring chemical substance that is usually found in grape skins. Japanese knotweed is also another major source of this bio-chemical. The buzz around this chemical is because scientists have experimented with it in many Resveratrol trials and have conclusive evidence that Resveratrol is very effective in preventing the occurrence of many life threatening diseases. Resveratrol extracts are said to be particularly useful preventing cancer, Alzheimer's and cardiovascular infractions. These are three of the most debilitating diseases that are prevalent today. Pure Resveratrol works very effectively to protect our bodies from diseases by eliminating harmful free radicals.
-Resveratrol is very effective in removing the cellular wastes from our body. One of the major causes of cardio vascular disease is the build up of plaque in the arteries present in our heart. The Resveratrol extract has the property of binding with this stubborn plaque and altering its cellular structure so that it becomes easily removable. This has a valuable effect in improving the vigor of our heart and helps us to maintain a healthy body.
-Resveratrol is a strong antioxidant and it aids in skin repair. As a natural defense mechanism found in plants, resveratrol has a number of health benefits including the lowering of blood sugar levels and improvements in the immune system.
-With its rich antioxidant structure, tests have shown that it helps the body protect cells, the nervous system and the cardiovascular system. As a result, many nutritionists strongly recommend consuming foods that contain the compound, especially for those who are recovering from illness or are at risk from compromised immune systems. Completely healthy individuals, however, can expect a wide range of benefits, including improved auto-immune response as well as potential improvements in metabolic rates that aid in weight regulation.
