COLLAGEN IN OUR BODIES
Collagen is one of the most important structural elements of our bodies, accounting for 25%-30% of its total protein. 75% of the skin is collagen.
Proteins are the “building blocks of life”. They bond together molecularly to form your bones, hair, skin, eyes, blood vessel wall and even your digestive enzymes, protective enzymes, neuro-transmitters and your hormones. The most important thing that a protein does, however, is hold information. Proteins can signal or direct certain processes in the human body which give us the ability to regeneration cell to cell, system to system and organ to organ.
At age 19, the body loses its ability to produce collagen. Depletion of the collagen supply leads to inefcient protein synthesis and cellular regeneration. The loss of collagen is most evident on the collapse of the dermal layer and contributes to the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. Another effect of insufcient collagen in the body is the loss of cartilage. Such condition leaves the bones exposed and painfully rubbing together. Thus, causing excruciating pain, inammation and stiffness. Hydrolyzed collagen is a bio-active ingredient that promotes cell regeneration in this case in terms of joint health; through the repair of the degenerated joint matrix by stimulating chondrocytes cells for the biosynthesis of collagen peptides.
HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN and CELLULAR REGENERATION
Effects of cellular regeneration can be seen in a variety ways such as muscle building, joint repair, bone mineral restoration, hair growth, youthful skin, breast lift and even clearer eye sight. Food application of collagen can benet individuals who wants to loss fat and shape their bodies. Specially when ample amounts of collagen is ingested/eaten. Collagen being a protein does not spike the blood sugar level, promoting catabolism, by naturally prompting the body to draw the required energy from stored fat.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONs:
What is Functional Food?
A functional food is a food given an addition function, often one that is related to the promotion of health or the prevention of disease, by adding new ingredients or more of existing ingredients. Some examples of functional food includes yogurt with probiotic, and Elan’s Fountain of Youth line of foods containing collagen.
How many grams of pure collagen protein should I eat?
The average man needs to ingest 56 grams of protein daily and the average woman, around 46 grams. The body, however, can only fully absorb about 10 grams of protein per hours. It is recommended that 5g-15g of collagen protein be taken daily.
What are the effects of ingesting collagen?
Our collagen peptides are manufactured following ISO (9001 – 2000) standards. Collagen is a hypo-allergenic food that is tasteless and odorless. The effects through ingestion include hair regrowth, youthful skin, relief from joint pain, lifting of the breasts and improved eyesight.
Is it safe to take collagen?
Yes. It is a natural supplement derived from carefully selected natural ingredients. Collagen has long been used all over the world in food and medicine. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified gelatin, from which collagen peptide is prepared, as a substance that is “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS). Furthermore, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) have reported that there is no need to specify a limit for the daily intake of collagen.
