Collagen: The Body's Anti-aging Protein
Collagen supplementation is one of the most fundamental things a person can do to prevent premature aging and promote youthful vitality. Understanding collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together; it's the building block for all our body's major systems.
Although abundant in our youth, the body's natural collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. As this collagen production slows, the collagen fibers in the body become brittle and begin to break down resulting in many of the tell-tale signs of aging, such as loose, flacid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis.
Super Collagen+C™ utilizes collagen types 1&3, which is 90% of the body's total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.
The Science of Collagen
Super Collagen+C™ 1&3 is composed of nineteen amino acids and is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline.
Once taken orally, it can produce peptides that stimulate fibroplast cells to produce and reorganize new collagen fibers which, upon bundling, can build the mechanical strenght of the connective tissues and strengthen the extracellular matrix.
Super Collagen's™ Advanced Bioavailability
Super Collagen+C™ uses an advanced enzymatic hydrolyzation process to break the large collagen molecules into low molecular-weight peptides that are both bioavailable and bioactive in the body. Super Collagen+C™ contains hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, two amino acids speciﬁc to Collagen. These are not regularly found in amino acid supplements and are especially important to collagen production. Collagen+C™ genetically parallels the amino acid structure of the body's collagen and it's been shown that persons taking hydrolyzed Collagen Type 1&3 will experience 90% absorption into the blood stream where cellular changes occur. *
Available in 3 different, bioavailable delivery systems: powder, tablets and liquid. Super Collagen+C™ tablets and Super Collagen+C™ Pomegranate Liquid are formulated with Vitamin C, which is absolutely essential to collagen formation. Super Collagen™ powder is water-soluble, neutral tasting, and mixes easily with water or juice containing Vitamin C, or other Vitamin C supplements are highly recommended.
