Collagen is used to support the health of Skin, nail, hair, bones, and tendons, and can be beneficial to athletes, the elderly or those with arthritis.
Collagen is an important building block of the body and it makes up around 30% of the proteins in humans. Collagen is the key structural protein that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of our connective tissues, including skin, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and bones.
As we age our collagen production reduces, and our body starts to fall apart, so we can benefit by consuming collagen supplements.
What is in your capsules?
Our Collagen C capsules contain 500mg of hydrolysed bovine collagen peptides (type 1) and 50mg of vitamin C.
What are peptides?
Collagen peptides is collagen that has been Hydrolyzed to form a soluble, easily digestible and highly bioactive form of collagen. The process of hydrolysis involves breaking down the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands using combinations of physical, chemical or biological means, which makes it more bioactive, meaning its easier for the body to adsorb it.
Why is bovine collagen the best?
There is some debates about which is the best source of collagen. We consider the collagen from mammals including bovine (cow) to be more superior in the use of human supplementation than other forms of collagen on the market such as fish, shark, and chicken, due to its the closest to human collagen, and therefore is used in the body better.
Why does it also contain Vitamin C?
Although Vitamin C its self has many benefits and is a powerful anti oxidant, we add it to our collagen formula because the vitamin activates the collagen, to ensure absorption and usefulness. Taking collagen without vitamin C would have little or no benefits.
Whats the dose?
Take 2 capsules, everyday with a glass of water at bed time. Sleeping is the time when the body repairs its self, so its most beneficial to take it before sleeping.
