Why You Need Collagen
Over one-quarter of all the protein in the body is made up of collagen. Collagen is the protein that makes your bones, nails, teeth and hair strong. Collagen connective tissues run throughout the body and provide structure for your skeleton, tendons, cartilage and muscles, all of which support your internal organs and protect your softer tissues.

Collagen and Skin
Collagen also plays a critical role in skin health. You have probably noticed how baby skin is so soft and smooth. Youthful skin is abundant in collagen and elastin fibers that lock in moisture and keep the skin firm. As we age, however, collagen production naturally declines by about 1 percent a year starting in our early 20s. Women in menopause are especially susceptible to collagen deficiency. Research shows that women lose as much as 30 percent of their skin collagen in the five years following menopause. And as if that is not bad enough, skin elasticity declines 0.55 percent per year after menopause. It is the loss of collagen that causes sagging skin and wrinkles.

Women spend billions of dollars on treatments such as skin fillers, laser and Botox. More so than any expensive treatment, however, it is possible to support beautiful skin and collagen production by choosing nutrients that provide the body with the necessary building blocks such as silicic acid and biotin.

The Silicon/Collagen Connection
Silicon is a trace mineral required by the body to make collagen. Specifically, silicon is converted into silicic acid that the body requires to manufacture collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, silicon from food, herbs and colloidal (gel) silica supplements is poorly absorbed, resulting in a lack of the building blocks required to make collagen. Collagen Plus contains silicic acid, which is directly used to make collagen. Within two to three months, you will notice an improvement in the smoothness of your skin and in the strength of your hair and nails.

Collagen Plus for Stronger Bones
Collagen is part of the matrix that ensures strong bones. One in four women has osteoporosis, and hip fractures are a leading cause of disability and sometimes death. Smart women choose Collagen Plus as part of their healthy bone program. Receding gums are an early indicator of osteoporosis, and dentists have reported that Collagen Plus stops receding gums. Weak, fragile nails are also symptoms of poor bone health. To prevent osteoporosis, take Collagen Plus and Multismart. Multismart contains all the bone-building nutrients, including the right forms of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, along with all of your vitamins and minerals. If you have osteoporosis, take Collagen Plus, Multismart and Bone Booster. Bone Booster contains vitamin K2 MK-7 and vitamin D3, superior forms of nutrients to enhance bone health.

The "Plus" in Collagen is Biotin
Like silicic acid, biotin is important for healthy hair, skin, nails and bones. Food sources of biotin include nuts, egg yolk, wheat bran, oat, barley, liver and brewer's yeast. However, the therapeutic amount of biotin required for healthy hair and nails exceeds that found in the typical diet. Topical biotin, often added to hair care products, is not as effective as biotin in capsule form. Supplemental biotin has been found to increase nail thickness and reduce splitting. Collagen Plus contains 50 micrograms of biotin in each drop.

About the vendor
Kerrisdale Pharmacy
Vancouver, BC
Kerrisdale Pharmacy was established in the early 1970's by pharmacist Romeo Goulet and was subsequently sold to pharmacist Odie McNeil.

In November 1981, Michael Holyk made the trip west from his home in Westlock, Alberta (where he owned Holyk Super Drug Mart) and purchased the pharmacy from McNeil.

At this time the pharmacy was located in its original site at 2142 West 41st Avenue in Kerrisdale and measured only 2000 square feet.

Michael’s son Colin graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy at UBC in 1990 and joined the team at the pharmacy. Seven years later, they undertook the move to their new (and current) location at 5591 West Boulevard. Shortly thereafter, Michael and Colin added a second pharmacy to the family when they purchased Hollyburn Pharmacy in West Vancouver, BC.

After 10 years in the new location they decided to renovate Kerrisdale Pharmacy, so they took over the next door site, expanded the pharmacy, added a medical clinic, and completed a floor to ceiling renovation - staying open the whole time through the construction dust and disruption in order to provide the top notch service that their clients had become accustomed to. A daunting task to say the least!

Shortly after moving the pharmacy in the 1990’s, pharmacist Eugene Mar joined the team and now shares the management duties of the pharmacy as Assistant Pharmacy Manager.

Since this time, Colin and Eugene have helped turn the pharmacy into a neighbourhood icon thanks to their diligent focus on comprehensive health care, a wide scope of services including compounding, and good, honest empathy for each person who walks through their door.
