Collagen C - For hair, skin and joint health
One of the most abundant proteins in our bodies is collagen. It plays a vital role in the body and makes up about 30% of the protein in humans. This protein is found in most parts of the body like bones, skin, muscles, blood vessels, digestive system, and tendons. Collagen helps strengthen the skin and make it more elastic, and it also assists in replacing the body’s dead skin cells. It holds the body together by functioning as “glue” for our joints and tendons. In fact, the word collagen comes from the Greek word kolla meaning “glue” and –gen meaning “giving birth to”.
As we age, the production of collagen in our body naturally begins to slow down. The result of this degenerative process shows some signs of aging that manifests in our body like wrinkles, saggy skin, and pain in the joints, caused by a decrease in cartilage. Of course, some lifestyle factors also contribute to the depletion of collagen levels. This includes having a high sugar diet, smoking, and prolonged exposure to the sun. By consuming collagen supplements such as Collagen C, it would help improve the following:• Healthier skin and hair – Having a higher amount of collagen would help with firmer-looking and smoother skin. Additionally, collagen would maintain the skin cells’ ability to renew and repair normally.• Reduces joint pain – Collagen allows us to move with ease because of its smooth and gel-like structure that covers and holds our bones together.
With the abundant source of collagen, there have been a lot of debates as to the best source of collagen. Bovine collagen is a type of collagen that comes from beef. The protein occurs naturally in the cartilage, bones, and hides of cows. This is the type of collagen that is very similar to the collagen that exists in a human body. This makes bovine collagen a better source of collagen since it would be easier for our bodies to use it.
Collagen C contains vitamin C since it helps activate the collagen, making it more useful to the body and helping the body absorb the collagen better. Consumption of collagen not containing vitamin C would have little or no benefits.
