Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is the principal building block for the vascular and digestive systems, skin, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, dentin in teeth and connective tissue and is a critical component of muscle and bone structure.
The process of hydrolysis involves introduction of hydrogen and oxygen to break the complex structure down into shorter chains of aminos, called Collagen Peptides. This makes the collagen more bioavailable – meaning that it is easier for the body to process.
Absorption of these collagen peptides provides both the trigger and the raw material to stimulate our body’s own production of new collagen.
The benefits of increased collagen production extend to the healing of damaged tissue, strengthening the body and a myriad of other improvements such as Digestion, Circulation, Metabolism, Skin, Hair, Nails, energy levels, mobility, and weight maintenance.
After our mid-twenties, our bodies are pre-programmed to progressively slow down, meaning that more and more collagen is lost each year and less and less replaced.
This manifests most obviously in areas of highest collagen concentration – our skin sags and becomes wrinkled as the underlying dermis loses its structure, our joints get creaky and cause discomfort as the cartilage deteriorates, our bones and muscles weaken, and our vascular and digestive systems become more and more problematic. Collagen supplementation is thus ideal for the maintenance of general health and youthfulness as we progress in years.
