An article featuring the clinical study comparing the efficacy of three test products by Tosla Nutricosmetics was just published by Journal of Functional Foods.
The study was conducted with 109 healthy female participants, all of whom were recruited from Slovenia. Participants were divided evenly, with 27-28 subjects per group, through a computerized randomization process, per the company.
The study led by Professor Katja Žmitek investigated three different formulations, one containing 10 g hydrolyzed fish collagen and the other two a combination of either 5g or 10g of fish collagen with 1.5g of MSM (methylsulphonylmethane). The results showed that participants using the supplements experienced improved dermis density, better skin texture and fewer wrinkles, per the company.
Uroš Gotar, chief innovation officer at Tosla, commented “[An a]rticle in Journal of Functional Foods is a huge milestone for us and a testament of our commitment to validation of the efficacy of our formulations. The study also isn’t purely academical, I see this as actionable data, that we can use in our further product development as well as brands being able to have objective claims they can use in their communications."
