What is Collagen?

collagen structure

Collagen is a protein and is almost everywhere in the body.

Collagen is divided in many types from I to XII.

Collagen I is the most abundant in the human body. It is found in tendons, skin, artery walls, cartilage and in the organic part of bones and teeth.

Collagen II is a hyaline cartilage and makes up 50% of all cartilage protein.

Our “Collagen Complete” is made of hydrolyzed collagen. It means it is easier to digest and to absorb in the tissues. It also includes all types of collagen from one to twelve.

When I started experimenting with hydrolyzed collagen, before we put our formula together, the first comment I got from a friend whom I had not seen in a while was that my hair looked so thick and healthy.

We kept on working on our research and formulation. I insisted we put Hyaluronic Acid (HA) 25 mg in it. HA brings nutrients in areas of the body where there is naturally poor blood supply such as tendons, cartilage, discs and meniscus. But my thinking was not just for these areas. You see, as we grow older our blood supply to any organs diminishes, I wanted to see if the skin would benefit from it also and get more collagen from the presence of HA.blog-pic-4

I started noticing changes on my face within a month, then friends and family were asking for my secret to a beautiful skin over 50…

I hope you benefit from it too.
