What is collagen?
Collagen is the fibrous structural protein that makes up the white fibers (collagenous fibers) of skin, tendon, bone, cartilage, and all other connective tissues. It is also found dispersed in gels of the body to provide stiffening, such as in the vitreous humour of the eye. In other words, collagen is the natural protein that composes most of the body’s structural support and is the primary substance of connective tissue. It is the fibrous connective tissue that holds our body together. Collagen is present in all multi-cellular organisms.
Collagen gives the different organs and tissues their strength and elastic properties. Twenty-five percent of the dry protein weight of the human body is collagen. Seventy-five percent of our skin is made of it, and in total – some thirty percent of our entire body is collagen. Collagen is part of the natural make-up of tendons, ligaments, joints, muscles, hair, skin, and vital organs.
Collagen powder contains a blend of amino acids specifically formulated to help replenish the body’s collagen stores to reduce the visible signs of aging, support strong & healthy bones, and nourish healthy skin, hair & nails. Collagen powder helps to maintain the body’s natural collagen levels that typically slow at a rate of about 1.5% every year, after the age of 25.
Composed of 18 amino acids, Collagen powder is a good source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline, which help to produce peptides that stimulate fibroblast cells, aiding in the production and reorganisation of new collagen fibres to strengthen connective tissues and the extra cellular matrix.
Anti-aging: Collagen powder contains a combination of essential and non-essential amino acids needed to restore collagen in the body, and minimize the appearance of the visible signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles and elasticity of the skin.
Skin, hair and nail health: Collagen powder offers high percentages of amino acids found in soft tissues, to support the profiles parallel to those found in soft tissues including skin, muscle and connective tissues. This blend of amino acids may be especially helpful to repair broken, split and damaged nail beds, to thicken fine hair and add body, while also slowing down hair loss.
Strong bones: Collagen is a main constituent in bones, joints and teeth. Collagen powder supplies this important part of the bone and cartilage matrix for strong and healthy teeth, bones & joints.
