COLLAGEN FOR PURISTS
Collagen is one of the most important proteins in our body. It accounts for about 30% of total body protein and is located in muscles, bones, skin, tendons, ligaments, hair, as well as circulatory and digestive systems.
Collagen plays an important role in maintaining the veins and arteries of a healthy cardio-vascular and circulatory system. It is the principal building block in most of our body’s structure, organs and systems, inside and out.
After the age of 25, collagen production in our bodies begins to decrease as we age. This natural process is responsible for some of our most obvious signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin and joint pains. Many ailments are caused by a combination of genetics, low intake of collagen-rich foods, nutritional deficiencies and digestive problems which can affect the body’s ability to synthesize collagen. Other modern lifestyle influences also contribute to rapid depletion of collagen levels and leave us feeling and looking quite a bit older than we should. Early intervention is crucial to prevent premature signs and effects of ageing.
This is where PeptiPlus Pure comes in. The short chains of amino acids in PeptiPlus Pure are much more bio-available than native collagen material, meaning your body can absorb them faster and more completely. Regular supplementation with collagen peptides stimulates the bodies collagen metabolism helping it to stay mobile, strong, flexible, and youthful. After absorption into the bloodstream the collagen peptides are transported throughout the body to tissues where they are needed the most. Cells build up the peptides into new full-length collagen helices to repair skin, bones and joints.
Published research supports demonstrable benefits associated with regular dietary supplementation with collagen hydrolysate.*
