DID YOU KNOW? Collagen comes from the Greek word “colla” (glue) and it holds the body together. It's the most abundant protein in the body. It’s found in our connective tissue, bones, tendons, ligaments, hair, skin, and even nails. Collagen is literally found everywhere in our body and is known as a “triple-helix” molecule with the tensile strength of steel. There are many different types of collagen, but our body is made up of primarily types I, II and III. The strongest and firmest, Collagen type I, is the most abundant collagen in our body and can be found in almost every tissue. Collagen II is found in our cartilage and it's the one responsible for presenting joint discomfort. 50% of people in North America over the age of 55 have joint problems, or 1 in 3 Americans. Type III is found in the reticular fiber, which provides structure to the liver, marrow, and spleen. Thus, organ and gut health is a lesser-known benefit of supplementation but very important nonetheless. Only our patented and clinically-proven liquid collagen/Ha (hyaluronic acid) matrix replaces all three types of collagen that your body loses with age. This begins to happen typically in your mid-20’s to mid 30’s. By the age of 40 there is a daily statistical percentage loss of collagen. Therefore, daily supplementation with the ONLY highest bioavailable hydrolyzed and LME (low-molecular weight) form will yield many health benefits and anti-aging effects. Most other “cheap” powder collagens are unrecognizable by the body and/or have extra barriers to absorption such as coatings and capsules. They are from inferior sources like marine/shellfish or cows and pigs with high molecular weight and are unhydrolyzed. They do not come in a naturally-occurring matrix along with an antioxidant-rich delivery system. It is important to understand why cheaper is not better when it comes to collagen. #knowyourfacts *This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
