Is Collagen really more
important than Vitamins?

What kind of material is Collagen, what is its role of our body's functioning, is this substance really more important then the vitamins?

Role of Collagen in the structure of the joints When young, we really don't pay much attention to what we eat, because we are nice and healthy. Older people may say: “It's easy to be healthy and beautiful when you are young!” However, if we don't pay attention to the right way of living, after the age of 25, we may experience some deterioration of the body's health condition later on. About two years ago, I noticed in my own body, that I might need something in addition to the regular vitamin intake. I still had the freshness, but my skin tone had lost a bit of shine and sometimes my lower back felt “the end of the day.” I had already heard a lot about Collagen previously. So I carefully studied the international scientific research, related to Collagen, and found what was needed. Vitamins are a very major, quality food source for the cells. From this point of view, they are very important. However, the intention to achieve the right consistency and structure in the cells we are feeding, is one step beyond that of mere nutrition. So based on scientific research and my own personal experience, I must say, that the body has a greater need for Collagen than for vitamins.

What is Collagen?

It's a protein that binds together the parts of cells, promotes the growth and healing of tissue and provides strength and flexibility to various tissues and cells of the body. Collagen can be found in all organs and forms the internal and external membranes of these organs. Therefore, if you can see changes on the outside of the body, you can be sure, deficiencies definitely existed not only on the outside but also on the inside.

What is the function of the Collagen in the body?

Structure of the normal and aging skin, and its contents of collagen Collagen contributes to the regeneration of tissues and the reconstruction and healing of sores or injuries. It can also contribute to maintaining healthy joint function. Collagen is a natural component of the skin and helps it to retain its elasticity and beauty. It strengthens the immune system. It helps the removal of existing wrinkles and slows down the formation of new ones. It gives you nicer hair and nails. It protects the bones from damage. It is suitable as a treatment for cellulitis. It helps the regeneration of any tissue problem. So we can say, Collagen is an inside-out spectacular “cure”, which creates its effects by building from the inside.

Amino-acids are the building blocks of proteins and, to grow the body's tissues, 20 amino-acids are needed. Amino-acids have a very important role in hydration and they are constituent elements of the epithelium. High quality Collagen preparations contain 15-17 types of amino-acids.

How can our system access for Collagen?

Collagen is produced by the body but this ability is reduced more and more after the age of 25 and almost completely stops at the age of 50-60. A number of studies have shown that a person, who has reached the age of 40, has lost 30% of his or her Collagen. By the age of 50 this loss can increase to 60%. So it is advisable to start Collagen supplementation at age 25.

When the amount of Collagen in the body decreases, all the body's resources are becoming less. The resistance of the body reduces and the aging process speeds up.

Is there any difference between Collagens from different sources?

Yes the quality of fish collagen highly stands out. The fish collagen is considered as the premium collagen, it can be said that among the other collagens, it is the "Queen of Collagen". It is important to know that fishes are living in extreme temperature, depth and pressure conditions, so the collagen which is derived from fish skin is characterized by an unique chemical and physical resistance. Structural integrity of the fish collagen is significantly smaller, what results an easier absorption in the body, compared to collagens derived from other sources.

How many collagen should we consume daily?

The international scientific researches proposing a linearly increased amount with the processes of the age, as after the age of 25, the body produces less and less collagen, and at the age of 50-60 completely stops the production of Collagen. Our body may utilize most easily the collagen in powder form, dissolved in water. In addition when you consider that a collagen formulation available, which are capsule fom can contain only up to 400mg, easy to see that it is not easy to take 5000 mg per day, as it needs to consume more than 12 capsules. It is a very important data, that the consumption of the adequate quantities actually achieve the desired effect. Where results are not achieved, usually the amount is not sufficient and the problem is that, and not that the collagen does not work. Collagen is a great nutrition to help stay healthy and beautiful even if you are over 25 years old.
