PEPTAN® BOVINE COLLAGEN POWDER
As one of the key structural proteins, collagen helps to maintain the regeneration, cohesion, and elasticity of the connective tissue. Collagen is a fundamental building block which exists throughout the body to provide structural tissue support. It can be found in the bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, skin, muscle tissue, blood vessels, hair, and nails. The most prevalent collagen is type 1 collagen. It is most helpful in maintaining bones, joints, skin, and the muscle’s regeneration. As a beauty supplement, collagen may help stimulate hyaluronic acid production to maintain the skin’s hydration. Collagens helps lubricate and the joints while maintaining bone mineral density. To aid healthy ageing, collagen helps to maintain lean body mass. As a sport supplement, collagen helps replenish the body’s protein after strenuous workouts.
The Sfera Bio Nutrition Bovine Collagen supplement is a type 1 collagen which contains Peptan® . Peptan® Collagen peptides are identical to those found in human skin and bones. Peptan® is a good quality collagen produced by Rousselot, developed specifically to offer a high purity, natural product which contains over 97 % protein. Of this protein, Peptan® contains 18 amino acids, with proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline making up 50 % of the amino acid composition. Due to its high bioactivity and bioavailability; 90 % of Peptan® Collagen peptides are absorbed into the body’s connective tissue within only a few hours of ingestion. The recommended daily dose of Peptan® Collagen is 10 g, which can be blended into soups, smoothies, juice, hot chocolate or even baked in food.
One scoop provides Hydrolised Collagen Peptides 10 mg
Take up to one (1) scoop per day after a meal.
Peptan® Collagen is highly soluble in cold water and can be blended with any types of drinks such as smoothies or juice. Collagen is heat resistant and can be added to soup, hot chocolate, or baked goods.
How it works:
Human cartilage contains cellular building blocks (chondrocytes). These produce our extracellular matrix, which consists of collagen and proteoglycans (mainly aggrecan).
Collagen fibres make up 70-95% of cartilage and are responsible for its structure and strength, while proteoglycans lubricate and cushion our joints.
Healthy cartilage relies on a balanced process that breaks down collagen and aggrecan and replace them both with a newly formed matrix. If the process is disturbed, increased matrix breakdown leads to loss of cartilage and joint function.
Collagen may assist in keeping joints healthy by:
- Reducing joint discomfort and stiffness
- Acting as a cellular trigger to increase collagen and aggrecan production
- Helping to prevent cartilage degeneration and support healthy joints
- Uniquely helping to reduce joint inflammation, a leading cause of joint discomfort.
Age brings on a reduction of muscle mass, which affects strength, tone, flexibility, and balance. The benefit of taking collagen is effective support of joint, bone and muscle health all at once.
The skin aging process is complex. It is a result of a combination of environmental and physiological factors. Being exposed to the elements takes its toll on our skin, causing a breakdown of collagen. The body produces less collagen as we age, which means the body is less able to repair the environmental damage.
Part of the aging process is due to dehydration. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin well-hydrated. Collagen appears to assist stimulate hyaluronic acid production leading to better hydration of the dermis.
Hair consists of 65-95% protein. With age, hair fibres can be weakened making them more breakable and appear less shiny.
