Answer: Collagen is a fiber protein that makes up a third of all protein in the human body. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the entire body, and is after water the most abundant substance in our bodies!
Answer: Collagen helps with structure to the body's tissues and cells. Below are some examples of the benefits of collagen:
It is simply that without collagen, you would more or less collapse!
Answer: To get hold of the amount of hydrolysed collagen that has an effect in the body and take advantage of the collagen's benefits, you would need about 10 grams of hydrolysed collagen a day. If you would take it in capsule or tablet form, it would be about 20 tablets a day!
When you take hydrolysed collagen in powder form, you do not need to add unnecessary substances contained in the capsule or tablets.
In the manufacture of capsules or tablets the substance magnesium stearate are used, as lubricant for the machines, and this ingredient do not add any benefit to your body.
The advantages of powder are also not to swallow large capsules or tablets, which can be difficult for some people!
Answer: We probably want to answer no to that question. Collagen is found mainly in supporting tissue (connective tissue) such as bone, skin, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, arteries, bone marrow, spleen, lymph nodes, the intervertebral discs and the eye, in mammals. These are parts of the animal that are not usually part of a normal traditional diet.
Answer: The body produces collagen itself, but the body's own production of collagen gradually decreases after the age of 25. Therefore, it may be good to add extra collagen to the body the older you get, to maintain a fresh, healthy and functional body.
Answer: Vitamin C is important for the activation of two key enzymes, which are needed for the collagen synthesis, which starts inside the cell. Without vitamin C (and also iron), the function of the enzymes is inactivated, and collagen cannot be formed.
Answer: Silicon is important for optimal collagen synthesis and activation of hydroxylating enzymes, which improves skin strength and elasticity (1).
Answer: Hydrolysed collagen peptides found in supplements, have an optimal uptake with high bioavailability in the blood and can be used by the body. Depending on the type of collagen it is, it contributes with various benefits to the body. There are many types of collagen in the human body, and the most common types of collagen are types 1, 2 and 3, where collagen type 1 is the most common type and constitutes about 90% of the body's collagen.
The collagen benefits are numerous and below are some of the benefits:
Answer: We recommend that you take hydrolysed collagen every day, without stopping, for optimal results.
Answer: No, collagen is always natural, and furthermore always has an animal origin.
Answer: Collagen used in supplements comes mainly from fish, cattle, pigs or chicken.
Answer: Collagen is hydrolysed (a molecule is split in two parts after the addition of a water molecule) enzymatically to low molecular weight peptides, to ensure optimal uptake in the body.
Answer: Hydrolysed fish collagen peptides have the highest absorption and bioavailability in the body, due to its smaller particle size, compared to hydrolysed collagen from cattle, pig and chicken. Bioavailability is very important as it largely determines the effect of the nutrient consumed. Hydrolysed fish collagen is absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently in the body than hydrolysed collagen from other animals. Because it is absorbed more efficiently and enters the bloodstream more quickly, hydrolysed fish collagen is considered to be the best source of collagen in dieatary supplements. Collagen from fish also contains collagen type 1, and this is the type of collagen that is most commonly found in the skin.
Answer: Collagen in dietary supplements comes mostly from fish, cattle, chicken or pig.
The collagen in COLLAGEN - SKIN & HAIR COMPLEX™ comes from fish, which contain type 1 collagen.
Answer: We recommend mixing a scoop of COLLAGEN - SKIN & HAIR COMPLEX™ into a smoothie, water, juice, or other optional cold beverage, or use it when baking cold pastries.
Hydrolysed collagen found in mixtures with ingredients that are heat sensitive, such as vitamin C, should not be mixed in boiling water or used in hot cooking as this can reduce the benefits of the ingredient.
