Collagen is the most abundant protein in human body and major component of the skin. It is what keeps our body together. It is found in skin, muscles, bones and tendons.
There are different types of collagen in the body, where majority is type 1 collagen.
One gram of collagen type 1 is actually stronger than 1 gram of steel! and is mainly found in skin, ligaments and tendons.
Because collagen type 1 is the main element of our skin structure, and the most important building block of connective tissue that’s the reason why is it so beneficial and important for our skin.
Collagen gives our skin youthful look, firmness, radiance and elasticity and supports production of new cells.
As it is being produced by the body it is a natural ingredient.
Collagen influences the skin’s collagen metabolism directly from the inside. It supports radiant, firm and youthful skin and improves skin hydration. It also reduces the number of fine lines and wrinkles.
This protein supports healthy bones, muscles and strong ligaments as well. It is known to reduce joint pains and boost muscle mass.
It can promote healthy hair in variety of ways. It can support hair growth, promote shine and nourish them from the inside.
Collagen helps improve skin surface structure and may help decrease cellulite and stretch marks.
Because collagen contains the amino acid glycine, and it is known to form muscle tissue, collagen helps improve muscle mass, which in turn helps boost metabolism.
Strengthen teeth and nails
Helps with wound healing
Promotes growth and health of nails
Our skin is being affected every day by external factors (internal and environmental), such as: ultraviolet radiation, hormones, stress, nutrition, smog, pollution, alcohol, smoking.
Body’s production of collagen decreases with age. After the age of 25 collagen production decreases by 1–1.5% each year!
That’s the reason why it is important to eat foods which increase collagen production in the body and to take collagen supplements.
Collagen molecules in their natural form are too large to penetrate the layers of the skin and get to bloodstream.
That is why it is the hydrolysed collagen peptides, which is the tiny collagen pieces which are the finished product of hydrolysis, which is the process of breaking up the molecules of collagen to tiny pieces which are able to penetrate the skin and be efficiently absorbed into bloodstream and activate the production of collagen in the skin.
Hydrolysed marine collagen when taken systematically orally helps collagen metabolism in the inner layer of the skin (dermis) supporting healthy skin while increasing skin moisture and delaying wrinkle formation.
Collagen supplements can stimulate skin metabolism and counteract the loss of collagenous extracellular matrix from the inside.
There are different types of collagen, but the one which we like most is the specific peptides of Verisol® (hydrolysed marine collagen) which stimulates collagen metabolism so as a result there is much higher production of collagen and extracellular matrix replacing what is lost though ageing and environmental factors. This is the type of collagen we use in our anti-ageing supplement COLLAGEM, as it works best with our other 11 ingredients to postpone effects of ageing.
