COLAGEN PLUS - 30 sachets
What is Collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body. It is a chain made up by more than 1500 amino acids. Proteins are essential elements for life. The body has millions on amino acids and peptides (amino acid links) available, which are involved in valuable and crucial tasks to regulate cell functions. Thus, collagen is made up by glycine, proline, lysine, arginine or hydroxyproline, which will be necessary to perform functions and tasks related to the tasks of building connective tissue and regulating cell growth.
Collagen supports the connective tissue, including many structures such as: the heart, lungs, arteries, skin, muscles, bones, cartilage, liver, hair, joints, nails, prostate...
Properties of Collagen
Together, all the amino acids are beneficial for cell replication, but the specific amino acid spectrum from hydrolyzed collagen will keep the tissues healthy.
Why is Collagen important?
With the passing of time, the collagen production drops, triggering some problems. For example, our skin loses elasticity and wrinkles will start to appear. Collagen can keep the skin firm. Regarding organs, a lack of collagen can cause instability and weakness.
Low collagen levels will affect the bone system, and the bones will lose density progressively; the joints and ligaments will become weaker, losing elasticity. Collagen provides support to buffer the impacts between joints and bones.
Hydrolyzed collagen can improve the replacement of synovial fluid between the joints. It also repairs, renerates and keeps the cartilage lubricated, which is weak and worn due to physical activity.
Collagen can be found in almost any structure of our body, this is the case of arteries too. So a lack of this element can become a risk for cardiovascular health. This is due to the fact that the areteries and all the circulatory system will become more unstable and weak against the platelets that obstruct the normal flow.
Causes of a Collagen Loss
Some of the factors that can trigger a lack of collagen, along with age, are: hormone changes, eating habits (processed food, sugar, hydrogenated oils, overcooking...), nutrient deficiencies, drugs and alcohol, exposure to external agents (sun, radiation...), stressful situations...
Benefits of Collagen
If we want to preserve our health, we need to follow a proper collagen intake. In this case, it is always better to prevent. Thus, taking Collagen regularly will support the:
- Elasticity and firmness for the skin
- Strengthening of the arteries
- Strengthening of the hair and nails
- Support for the tissues that make up the organs for its proper functioning
On the other hand, collagen supplementation can help with other problems such as:
- Prostate problems
- Chronic fatigue
- Skin problems
Who can benefit from Colagen Plus?
Hydrolyzed collagen is easier to digest due to its low molecular weight, it is absorbed 30 minutes after its intake.
- Those who have joint problems and who want to get all the necessary nutrients for their joints.
- People who want an effective support to protect and improve the health and aspect of the skin, nails or connective tissue.
- To prevent possible pathologies that can affect our health.
