The body’s natural ability to repair supporting connective tissue (bone, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, skin, hair and nails) starts to diminish after the age of 25.
Collagen provides the source of supplying additional amounts of amino acids like glycine, lysine and proline, which are specifically needed by the body to build connective tissue structures and to regulate the functions of the cells. Hydrolyzed collagen helps regulate the body’s metabolism by providing pure protein of low molecular weight that is quickly absorbed in the digestive tract.
Gelatin is one of the few protein sources containing good amounts of amino acid glycine. Glycine’s role in skin health is derived from its important role as a component of collagen, which is what gives our skin (and hair, nails, bones, tendons, ligaments) its structure, tone, elasticity and resiliency – in other words, glycine is essential for youthful-looking skin. In addition, glycine has many other incredibly beneficial roles in the body. It is highly anti-inflammatory, helps to soothe and rebuild the mucous membranes of the digestive tract and aids in wound healing, making it highly recommended for anyone with conditions such as gastric ulcers or increased intestinal permeability. Glycine increases the absorption of calcium in the gut, promotes optimum bone density and joint health, may effectively support optimal blood pressure, and hyperpolarises nerve cells, causing a calming sensation shortly after ingestion.
Hydrolyzed collagen is the same collagen found naturally in bones, skin and cartilage. It is a bioactive product containing 90% protein and is easily assimilated by the human body. It promotes rapid cell growth by producing synovial fluids to first lubricate joints and then can help to build tissue.
This product has a low molecular weight so it will dissolve in cold, warm, or hot liquids. Collagen Hydrolysate as a pure protein taken before meals may help curb appetite. Enjoy when added to your favourite drink such as coffee, smoothies, non-carbonated beverages or juice.
This gelatin does not solidify.
Take two rounded tablespoons (12 g) twice a day.
