Collagen Type 1 & 3 benefits:
Collagen supplementation is one of the most fundamental things a person can do to prevent premature aging and promote youthful vitality. Understanding collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together; it is the building block for all our body's major systems.
Although abundant in our youth, the body's natural collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. As this collagen production slows, the collagen fibers in the body become brittle and begin to break down resulting in many of the telltale signs of aging, such as loose, flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis. Super Collagen + C utilizes collagen types 1 & 3, which is 90% of the body's total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.*
Super Collagen 1 & 3 is composed of nineteen amino acids and is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine, and hydroxyproline. Once taken orally, it can produce peptides that stimulate fibroblast cells to produce and reorganize new collagen fibers which, upon bundling, can build the mechanical strength of the connective tissues and strengthen the extracellular matrix.
