Collagen Is Extremely Important to Having a Healthy Body

collagen

You can think of it as the “glue” that holds the body's molecules together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.

  • Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body, accounting for more than one-third of its protein composition.
  • It’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth.
    Collagen Strands
  • Here’s a closer look at the four main types of collagen and their roles in your body
    • Type I. This type provides structure to skin, bones, tendons, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue, and teeth.
    • Type II. This type is made of more loosely packed fibers and found in elastic cartilage, which cushions your joints.
    • Type III. This type supports the structure of muscles, organs, and arteries.
    • Type IV. This type helps with filtration and is found in the layers of your skin.

How to Maintain High Levels of Collagen So That Your Body Stays More Tight, Wrinkle-Free and Youthful

  • As you age, your body produces less and lower quality collagen from the food we eat. One of the visible signs of this is in your skin, which becomes less firm and supple. Cartilage, also made from collagen, weakens with age.
  • Supplement with Collagen or the amino acids: Proline, Glycine and Copper. These are the raw ingredients from which Collagen is made.
  • Supplement with Vitamin C. Collagen cannot incorporate into any of your tissues in the absence of Vitamin C.
  • Supplement with Sulfur. Collagen synthesis is much greater in the presence of sulfur.
  • Avoid excessive amounts of sugar, sunshine and smoking. Excessive amounts of any of these three things reduces the production of Collagen.
  • Again, Collagen enables collagen stabilization. Studies have shown that Collagen deficiency results in poor collagen cross-linkage and weaker connective tissue

What Are Optimal Doses of Collagen?

Two Tablespoons of Collagen Twice Per Day

And 1,000 Mg of Vitamin C Twice Per Day
And One Tablespoon of Sulfur Twice Per Day

All of the above are required for Collagen synthesis. The result of taking all three of the above ingredients will be great skin and connective tissue health.

What are the Natural Sources of Collagen

  • Collagen is found in the connective tissues of animal foods. For example, it’s found in large amounts in chicken and pork skin.
  • A current great fad is making and consuming bone broth, which is made by boiling the bones of chicken and other animals.
  • Gelatin is basically cooked collagen, so it’s very high in the amino acids needed to produce it.

What Are the Ingredients in Our Soluble Organic Collagen?

  • Collagen from 100% Organic pastured raised Argentinian and Brazilian cows, raised with the most stringent care that even Japanese Kobe beef cannot compare.
  • No hooves are used ever!
  • Even the cows themselves are not permitted to eat pasture that has had acid rain fall on it.
  • Never have they been fed grains or given hormone injections!
  • It digests so easily that its like drinking water. It dissolves in water completely in just a few seconds.

Our collagen product is rich in the nitrogen amino acids: argninine, glycine, proline and hydroxyproline.

Frequently Asked Questions About Collagen

What Is Unique About Our Soluble Organic Collagen?

Our Soluble Organic Collagen formulation is extremely well absorbed and is organic. It is grown in Brazil or Argentina under stringent organic regulations.

What Age Should You Start Taking Collagen Supplements?

There’s no right or wrong time to start taking collagen supplements, but around the age of 25-30, is when most peoples collagen stores begin to reduce.

Collagen production slows by 1-2% per year. For cosmetic reasons, some people begin collagen supplements in their early 20s while others may not start until they notice visible signs of poor skin elasticity later in life. Here's a graph of what the Collage loss looks like through life without supplementing:

 

Why is It Important to Take Vitamin C and Sulfur With Collagen for Maximum Effectiveness?

  • Vitamin C - Vitamin C has an essential role in connective tissue healing, being a cofactor for prolyl hydroxy-lase and lysyl hydroxy-lase. These enzymes catalyze the hydroxylation of proline and lysine residues of pro-collagen, promoting the proper folding of the stable collagen triple-helix conformation.
  • Sulfur - Sulfur is necessary for collagen synthesis, which gives the skin its structure and strength. The breakdown of collagen or insufficient production of collagen as we age is one of the major contributors to the development of wrinkles, and dietary sulfur significantly affects the production of collagen in our skin. Animals fed a sulfur deficient diet produce less collagen than normal, demonstrating how a diet with inadequate sulfur can contribute to a reduction in collagen and subsequently cause an increase in skin wrinkling. Getting enough sulfur in your diet can help maintain collagen production and keep your skin looking firm
