Collagen

Collagen is a key component in our hair, skin, nails and connective tissue, providing them with firmness and strength.  From early adulthood onwards our body produces less and less collagen resulting in a net loss of 1% or more a year.  As a result bones lose density, skin loses firmness and muscles lose strength.

The Revitalise range of collagen aims to help combat this problem.  Made with types I and II collagen (in the form of collagen hydrolysate for easy absorption), this nutritional supplement should be taken in conjunction with a balanced diet.  The range includes both pure collagen formulations as well as supplements, which combine additional ingredients to target specific needs.

10 Reasons to Use Xenca Collagen

Fibrous in nature, it connects and supports the tissues of the body: skin, bone, tendons, muscles, and cartilage. It also supports the internal organs and is present in eyes and teeth. In fact collagen makes up some 50% of the entire protein content of the human body.

2. Collagen can be thought of as the glue that holds the body together. Without it, the body would, quite literally fall apart. From our mid-twenties onwards we lose collagen at an average rate of 1.5% annually, resulting eventually in lines, wrinkles, aches and pains and many other symptoms attributed to the ageing process.

3. Collagen Hydrolysate (i.e. collagen protein that has been enzymatically or chemically processed to make it more digestible) taken orally has been scientifically proven to safely accumulate in bone joints and cartilage, thus offering a way of combatting the natural depletion process.

4. Clinical research in Germany, UK and the USA into Collagen Hydrolysate has shown that taking a daily supplement of collagen can significantly help sufferers of arthritis and ease joint pain.

5. Athletes susceptible to joint impact injuries have been successfully treated in the USA with larger doses of 10g of Collagen Hydrolysate a day over a period of three months.

6. Following treatment with Collagen Hydrolysate, study results have specifically determine the following benefits: reduced joint pain at rest, reduced joint pain when walking and standing, reduced joint pain when carrying objects and reduced joint pain when lifting weights.

7. Japanese clinical research monitored the hydration status of female skin following Collagen Hydrolysate supplementation and noted an improvement of water absorption capacity. Anecdotal evidence from large numbers of users of collagen supplements supports their findings that taking collagen daily helps smooth the appearance of skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

8. Increased collagen intake may also improve your eyes, strengthen nails and improve the condition of your hair.

9. Top quality collagen is available relatively inexpensively (from an RRP of less than £0.60/day) as non-invasive capsules and powders to be taken daily with a drink.

10.In monitored clinical trials of over 2000 patients given Collagen Hydrolysate no undesirable side effects were reported.

Some Stats and Facts about Collagen

Collagen is……

a group of naturally occurring proteins found in animals, especially in the flesh and connective tissue of mammals.  It is the main component of connective tissue and is the most abundant protein in mammals, making it around 25 to 35% of the whole body protein content.   Collagen in the form of elongated fibrils, is mostly found in  tissues such as tendon, ligament and skin, and is also abundant in cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut, and intervertebral disc.  Collagen constitutes 1 to 2% of muscle tissue, and accounts for 6% of the weight of strong, tendinous muscle.  Possessing great tensile strength, collagen functions in a manner that is very different from many other types of proteins.  For example, it can be found both inside and outside of cells.  Collage fibers are important to contributing to the external structure of the cells.  However, the are present on the inside of some cells as well.  Some people refer to collagen as the glue that holds the body together.  Without it, the body would quite literally fall apart.

 I should take it because……

As a key component in out hair, skin, nails and connective tissue, providing them with firmness and strength, sufficient collagen levels in the body are essentials to looking and feeling good.  Our bodies produce collagen daily but they also break it down too.  As we get older, our bodies loose the ability to produce sufficient amounts of collagen and our reserves start to deplete.  From our mid 20’s onwards the average person loses 1.5% of their collagen reserves annually, a process that accounts for many of the symptoms of the aging process: skin loses elasticity causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear, aches and pains may develop, hair and nails may start to lose their shine.  Taking a collagen supplement on a regular basis has been found to help reduce the effects of aging.
