Want to slow the clock on ageing? Get to know the ‘three Cs’

Whoever said beauty begins from within was right. Fighting ageing from the inside out can help your defence against the march of time.

We might feel invincible in our teens and early 20s but as the years tick by, we start to notice subtle changes to our body and skin, hair and nails.

Yes, getting older is inevitable, but taking a whole-body approach to combat its effects, starting with a focus on the three Cs – collagen, cardiovascular health and circulation – can help you look and feel younger for longer.

Here’s why it’s important to look after these components as you get older.


Collagen is an essential scaffolding protein that gives skin its smoothness and elasticity, making it look plump and youthful.

It is used to make connective tissue and contributes to supporting the health of your tendons, skin, bone, muscles and cartilage (there’s a reason we love it).

While your natural levels of this superstar protein decrease as you age, supplementation can support collagen formation.

Cardiovascular system health

Cardiovascular changes as we get older can increase our risk of heart-related issues.

Taking steps to look after your heart, such as maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, following a healthy diet and not smoking, are key to good cardiovascular health.


While your heart does the pumping, your circulatory system is the network of blood vessels that snake around your body, carrying that oxygen from the heart and lungs to your organs, tissues and cells.

With ageing the main artery and capillary walls can become thicker – increasing blood pressure and the need for the heart to work harder – while receptors that monitor and adapt blood pressure become less sensitive.

This makes maintaining good circulation important for wellness as you age.

Reduced blood flow can cause weak or sore muscles, cold fingers and toes, chest pain, numbness or pale or blue skin.

You can boost circulation through exercise, a healthy diet and quitting smoking.

What else can you do to support the three Cs?

Anthogenol is a naturally derived supplement containing the powerful antioxidants Oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPCs, found in abundance in grape seed extracts.

Anthogenol contains exclusive and clinically proven OPCs, known as Masquelier’s Original OPCs (after Professor Jack Masquelier, who successfully isolated them and spent decades perfecting them).

Anthogenol capsules not only help to reduce free radicals formed in your body but provide support for cardiovascular and bone health, collagen formation and healthy blood circulation – all essential components of whole body anti-ageing goodness.

All to help you look and feel younger, from the inside out.
