What is Collagen and why is it important to integrate it

Collagen is a protein , more precisely the most abundant protein in the organism. In humans the family of these proteins is made up of 28 different types of collagen, distinguished by Roman numerals (collagen I, collagen II, collagen depending on the area of ​​the body in which they are located they have different characteristics.

Bovine collagen has a prevalence of Type I collagen (present in: bones, skin, tendons, ligaments, cornea) and III (present in: skin, blood vessel walls, reticular fibers of the lungs, liver, spleen).

It should also be noted that collagen, regardless of its origin, contains 19 amino acids, including hydroxyproline which is not found in other proteins. The content of hydroxyproline, together with that of proline and glycine, probably represents the most important aspect from a nutritional point of view.

The main role of collagen is structural: it contributes to the mechanical properties, organization and shape of tissues, and is also a filling protein, which gives support, elasticity and protection to all connective tissues.

As we age, collagen production decreases and its degradation increases, consequently damaging our connective tissue.

Even incorrect lifestyles can damage collagen: cigarette smoking, a diet rich in simple sugars, excessive exposure to sunlight, excessive alcohol consumption and reduced intake of foods rich in vitamin C are factors capable of weaken our collagen. In fact, with age, cross-links (particular elements that bind collagen molecules) increase and this condition makes collagen less elastic and more fragile.

Furthermore, if in young people there is a balance between collagen production and its degradation, in the elderly this balance is shifted towards degradation. Therefore, starting from the age of 30, the body "destroys" more collagen than it produces: the result is a decrease in the general levels of this protein in the body.

Drinking collagen acts with two different modes of action: in the first, it directly provides the body with the building blocks to produce further collagen, and binds to the receptors of fibroblasts (connective tissue cells that produce collagen) further stimulating its production."

Several studies have confirmed the positive effects of collagen intake on the skin. The skin appears more hydrated, elastic and compact. On a functional level, it acts by stimulating the endogenous production of collagen.

Once ingested, drinking collagen enters the blood circulation . In general, with aging the production of collagen fibers decreases, collagen becomes unstable and the skin tends to sag. Wrinkles form as a result. However, the reduction of collagen molecules also exposes us to other risks: joints become more fragile, as do bones, teeth, hair and nails. Collagen, taken as a supplement, acts like "glue": it supports the body structure and tissue cohesion, and is not only conveyed to the skin, but to all connective tissues."

Pure CollagenX Peptides is an exceptional food supplement based on bioactive bovine collagen peptides specifically designed to promote the well-being of all tissues in which collagen is naturally present.

One of the fundamental characteristics of PureCollagenX is hydrolyzed collagen , which is enzymatically split into bioactive peptides, small molecules, which make the product highly bioavailable, assimilable by the body and easily digestible.

This collagen formulation helps promote the well-being of skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, and all other connective tissues.

Pure CollagenX Peptides is characterized by the purity and quality of the raw material, the cows are raised on grass pasture in Switzerland, the collagen powder is odorless and tasteless, therefore it can be easily added to any drink without altering the taste, furthermore it is easily soluble in both hot and cold drinks.

We recommend taking 10 g of Pure CollagenX Peptides per day for at least 3 months to have noticeable effects of reducing the depth of wrinkles, as well as preventing the formation of new wrinkles.
