Collagen: The Body's Anti-Aging Protein
Collagen supplementation is one of the most fundamental things a person can do to prevent premature aging and promote youthful vitality. Understanding Collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together; it is the building block for all our body's major systems.
Although abundant in our youth, the body's natural Collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. As this collagen production slows, the collagen fibers in the body become brittle and begin to break down resulting in many of the telltale signs of aging, such as loose, flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis. Super Collagen+C utilizes Collagen Types 1&3, which is 90% of the body’s total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.*
Persons taking this supplement often see visible improvements within a couple weeks.
The Science of Collagen
Super Collagen 1&3 is composed of nineteen amino acids and is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine, and hydroxyproline.
Once taken orally, it can produce peptides that stimulate fibroblast cells to produce and reorganize new collagen fibers which, upon bundling, can build the mechanical strength of the connective tissues and strengthen the extracellular matrix.*
Super Collagen's Advanced Bioavailability
Super Collagen+C uses an advanced enzymatic hydrolyzation process to break the large collagen molecules into low molecular-weight peptides that are both bioavailable and bioactive in the body. Super Collagen+C contains hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, two amino acids specific to Collagen. These are not regularly found in amino acid supplements and are especially important to collagen production. Collagen +C genetically parallels the amino acid structure of the body's collagen and its been shown that persons taking hydrolyzed Collagen Type 1&3 will experience 90% absorption into the blood stream where cellular changes occur.*
The Difference Between Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2
Scientific studies show that more than 90% of the collagen found in the body is Collagen Type 1&3. The protein composition consists of nineteen amino acids responsible for the growth and maintenance of the body with unusually high percentages of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which are all found in the skin and muscle. Collagen Type 2 protein consists of eighteen amino acids, which amino acid profiles parallel the profile of the joint cartilage.
Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2 should not be combined due the types having different amino acid profiles. If taken together, the two proteins will bind and form a complete protein and the body will not recognize it as collagen. It is recommended that if you want to take both sources of collagen protein, it should be done at least an hour apart.*
Available in Three Different, Bioavailable Delivery Systems: Powder, Tablets, and Liquid
Super Collagen+C tablets and Super Collagen+C Pomegranate Liquid are formulated with Vitamin C, which is absolutely essential to collagen formation. Super Collagen powder is water-soluble, neutral tasting, and mixes easily with water or juice - juice containing Vitamin C, or other Vitamin C supplements, are highly recommended.
