Collagen: The Body's Anti-Ageing 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 is 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 ageing, such as loose, ﬂaccid 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™ 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 ﬁbroblast cells to produce and reorganize new collagen ﬁbers which, upon bundling, can build the mechanical strength 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.
The Diference Between Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2:
Scientiﬁc studies show that more than 90% of the collagen found in the body is Collagen Type 1&3. The protein composition consists of nineteen amino acids responsible for the growth and maintenance of the body with unusually high percentages of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which are all found in the skin and muscle. For maximum benefits Collagen Type 1&3 and Type 2 should not be combined at the same time. Each type has different amino acid profiles and is produced by different cells in the body - Types 1&3 by fibroblasts and osteoblasts, Type 2 by chondrocytes.
Research has shown that combining Type 1 and Type 2 collagens may reduce the stimulatory effects at the cellular level. While combining the types is not dangerous, for a supplement to be as bioactive and effective as possible we recommend taking the different types of collagen separately throughout the day, giving each type the opportunity to stimulate the correct cells without interference by the incorrect type of collagen. Type 1&3 in the morning and Type 2 at night is a good option.
