The Power Of Collagen


Collagen protein has been a hot topic lately, promoted by TV experts and lifestyle bloggers for its myriad benefits. 

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It is found in our muscles, bones, skin and tendons. It is the main structural protein component of the body that acts like the glue and the main building block for cells, tissues, and organs. It plays a vital role in the formation and maintenance of our bones, tendons, ligaments, hair, nails and skin.

Our bodies naturally produce collagen but as we age, that production slows down. By age 27, it is believed that collagen production begins to decrease by 1.5% per year, meaning that by the age of 45, we are actually producing 27% less collagen and by the time we reach the age of 60, collagen production is down by half. The reason is that as we age it becomes more difficult to convert the protein we obtain from chicken, fish and other foods into the collagen that benefits our skin, muscles and joints.

As a result, our stored-up collagen becomes depleted. This leads to the all-too-familiar common signs of aging: saggy and wrinkled skin, stiff bones and joints, and more brittle nails and hair. It is therefore time to feed the superstructure of your body with powdered collagen.

The most effectively absorbed collagen comes from fish, which is up to 1.5% more efficiently absorbed into the body than that from animal sources such as beef and pork. Fish collagen helps to maintain the strength and flexibility of skin, nails, hair, gums, blood vessels, tendons, muscles, ligaments, joints, and bones. 

I’m a huge advocate of collagen, and my favorite product are: 

The Peptide collagen repair cream, and the Deluxe Bio Complex cream which is loaded with Phyto-chemicals and 93 minerals and micro minerals and structured water and polysacharides.

Collagen production is boosted, and your skin is left clear, smooth and glowing, protecting the skin from daily and long-term sun damage and aging.

The benefits of peptides in this fabulous matte formulation cream are the stimulation of collagen 1, collagen 111, and elastin fibroblasts.  

  • Type I collagen forms striated fibers between 80 and 160 nm in diameter in blood vessel walls, tendon, bone, skin and meat. It may be synthesized by fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells.
  • Type III collagen forms reticular fibers in tissues with some degree of elasticity, such as spleen, aorta and muscle. It is synthesized by fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells, contributes substantially to the endomysial connective tissues around individual muscle fibers, provides a small fraction of the collagen found in skin and occurs in the large collagen fibers dominated by Type I collagen. It may have some function in regulating collagen fiber growth.
