What is Collagen?
Collagen is a gemstone for health and is the most abundant protein in your body accounting for about one third of its protein composition. Although the human body is made up of protein, fat and carbohydrates, collagen is the major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including tendons, ligaments and muscles. Because it accounts for 30% of the total protein content in the body it has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones. . It is literally the “glue that holds everything together” in the body.
Because collagen is like the cellular scaffolding and lubrication that facilitates inter cellular exchange of diverse substances owing to its ability to fill inter cellular spaces, it is known as the “glue” that holds your body together. Collagen is a protein which is made up of amino-acids, which are in turn built of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen.
Why Ultima Collagen Joint?
Ultima Collagen Joint is sourced all the way from Japan, as Japan is the largest consumer of collagen in the world, and when collagen peptides are consumed they trigger the body to increase the production of collagen. When we reach our 20’s our body starts producing less collagen which leads to collagen degradation and this can result in cartilage damage and deterioration, which eventually leads to joint pain and loss of mobility. Bone health and bone density is also compromised and reduced when you age, making you more susceptible to fractures of the wrist, shoulder, spine and hips. Increasing your collagen intake will aid in physical health and enhances feelings of well-being by supporting healthy joint function and movement.
Each ingredient is formulated to target key areas to help:
- Rebuild cartilage
- Prevent cartilage degeneration
- Improve bone density
- Strengthen tendons
- Reduce joint pain
- Support athletic performance
Collagen adds stability and structure to bones and make up 30% of bone composition, while maintaining and increasing cartilage composition and strength, this in turn builds a healthy framework on the inside. Collagen also makes up articular cartilage, the tissue that covers the ends of the bones at the joints and allows them to move smoothly against one another. It’s rich in amino acids that play an important role in the building of joint cartilage and it may have anti-inflammatory effects.
Here are the key amino acids for skin health and what they do.
- Glutamine – helps with bone homeostasis at a cellular level, which helps with bone diseases
- Glycine and Hydroxyproline – provides strength for muscles, bones, ligaments and cartilage
- Prolin – helps to cushion joints and repair muscles
- Threonine – helps to build strong bones and tooth enamel and help speed recovery from injury
- Arginine, Carnitine – helps heal and repair and strengthen damaged tissue and treat arthritis
- Lysine – helps the body absorb calcium, playing an important role for bones and connective tissues
