Collagen (from Greek κόλλα - "glue") is a natural protein that is most often mentioned when talking about beautiful skin, but in reality its role in the body is much more important: it is responsible for the proper functioning of the whole body, as it is found in bones, muscles, joints and other vital organs.
Collagen acts as a carrier that connects the various tissues in the body and ensures that they are flexible and firm.
Safe and free movement and also recovery from various injuries depend on the functions of this protein.
Collagen is actively formed in the body until the age of 25, but then it begins to live from reserves. The body's requirements for its functions, in turn, do not change, so when the reserves are depleted, connective tissue, ligaments, joints begin to suffer, and it begins to become visible - skin ages, loses elasticity and wrinkles, hair and nails become weak and break, joint , bone and dental health.
Decreased joint mobility can lead to pain and inflammation, arthritis, osteoporosis - a decrease in bone density and other diseases that may be associated with depletion of collagen reserves in the body.
Especially dramatically, the amount of collagen starts to run out by women after 40+.
Natural collagen is a protein of animal origin, it is not present in
plants. It is most commonly obtained from cattle, molluscs and fish.
It has been scientifically proven that the complex molecule of collagen does not break down or be absorbed when it enters the intestinal tract and thus does not give any benefit to the body, but in a crushed form with special carriers, collagen is already absorbed more easily in the intestinal tract.
Therefore, collagen is hydrolyzed in the production process with special technologies - the complex protein molecule is further divided into hydrolysates or peptides (tripeptides, dipeptides) and amino acids. It has already been studied that these low-molecular-weight collagen preparations are well absorbed in our gastrointestinal tract, enter the bloodstream and affect the whole organism.
Oral collagen supplies the whole body evenly. It improves the condition of the skin, bones, joints, as well as nails and hair. There are studies on the effects of drinking collagen not only on the skin but also on the joints affected by degenerative changes.
Collagen use is not a one-time event, but a long-term concern for yourself.
What do we get as a result? :
skin dryness gradually decreases, because the skin significantly improves hydration - the skin's supply of moisture. It is also important in cases of dermatological diseases, for example, if the skin has barrier problems, i.e. i.e., atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, red face syndrome, etc. c.
as the amount of collagen in the skin improves, the amount of elastic tissue increases, which improves the elasticity of the skin and reduces the depth and outline of wrinkles
Collagen stimulates tissue regeneration and increases not only collagen
synthesis, but also the synthesis of substances essential for joints, cartilage
and bone, such as glycosaminoglycans and hyaluronic acid.
Collagen saturates the whole body and goes exactly where it is most lacking, namely: joints, ligaments, other tissues and skin.
the ingested collagen does not accumulate anywhere and does not stand still like a filler. It does its job, collapses, and is replaced by our own synthesized collagen.
The small intestine and its health are important in the process of collagen absorption. A healthy stomach and pancreas also play a role in the breakdown of collagen. Its absorption can be reduced by taking various medicines that slow down the digestive process. For example, proton pump inhibitors (omeprazole medicines) reduce the amount of stomach acid and can also make it harder to break down collagen.
