WHAT IS COLLAGEN AND WHY DO WE NEED TO SUPPLEMENT?

Collagen is a key protein in the body that ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of skin, tendons, organs, fibrous cartilage, and bone. The process of its renewal can be disturbed due to disease, poor nutrition, stress, UV rays and contact with toxins and when synthesis starts to slow, which happens as we grow older. After the age of 25, we start to lose collagen from our bodies, at a rate of up to 1.5% per year.  Supplementation is therefore essential.

WHAT IS HYDROLYSED COLLAGEN PEPTIDES?

Collagen Peptides is Gelatine which has undergone hydrolysis – broken down to smaller particles, gelatine has bigger particles. Hydrolysed collagen does not show any gel strength at all. This is due to the much lower molecular weight of hydrolysed collagen. Hydrolysed collagen is composed of short amino acid chains called “Peptides”. This allows a very high degree of bioavailability enabling the peptides to pass the intestinal wall into the bloodstream.  O Nutricia hydrolysed collagen is a unique, bioactive protein which supports collagen replenishment. Our collagen contains high levels of the amino acids glycine, hydroxyproline, proline, and arginine. This very specific composition of amino-acids provides O Nutricia Collagen with nutri-functional properties that cannot be found in other protein sources. As peptides are of nano size, they can easily pass through the intestinal wall and accumulate in the blood after only 20 minutes, distributing to the connective tissue stimulating endogenous collagen synthesis. O Nutricia collagen peptides provide proline and glycine that balance out the tryptophan and Cysteine.

Maximise collagen absorption with O Nutricia Vitamin C capsules:

O Nutricia Collagen + Vit C is a premium nutricosmetic, formulated to rejuvenate and revitalize skin cells by increasing collagen levels, thereby rebuilding the skin matrix.

Vit C is an essential vitamin, needed by the human body for the growth and repair of tissue cells, and assists in the biosynthesis of collagen.  O Nutricia Collagen + Vit C can help plump the outer layer of your skin naturally,  thus reducing the appearance of fine lines and other flaws, ease joint and bone pain, strengthen nails and hair, heal the gut and detox the liver. Improved results may be seen when used in conjunction with O Nutricia collagen peptides powder. Whilst our body produces sufficient amounts of amino acids, during times of stress or sickness these levels drop and so supplementation is essential.
