Loss of firmness of the skin, pain in the joints, you have been advised to take collagen, but you do not know how to do it? We explain what this protein that makes up our connective tissues can bring you and how to use it!
This formulation is tailored to include the Non-GMO collagen complex from Healblend to carry out everything mentioned above. Collagen supports your joints and bones, helping to strengthen them. With ageing, your risk of degenerative joint issues will be lower.
Why Take Collagen As A Supplement?
Healblend Collagen is a basic ingredient in various food supplements dedicated to skin beauty or joint health. It is also a key active ingredient in anti-aging creams, anti-wrinkle cosmetic treatments, masks for mature skin or anti-dark circles serums. If it is so appreciated in the field of natural health and aesthetic medicine, it is because it is a major constituent of the tissues of the human body.
Healblend Collagen is in fact present in the extracellular matrix of the dermis (largely responsible for the appearance of the epidermis), bones, bone cartilages, tendons, ligaments, muscles as well as certain organs of the digestive tract. Composed of a very long chain of amino acids organized in a triple helix, collagen is a fibrillar protein whose role is to promote tissue homogeneity and resistance to torsion and traction. It is also involved in the process of healing wounds or repairing bones following a fracture.
As we age, the cells responsible for its synthesis produce less and less natural collagen
This is what partly explains skin aging giving rise to fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin all over the body as well as joint pain resulting from degeneration of the bones and the cartilage that covers them. Collagen fibers can also be destroyed by oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
To slow down the degradation of tissues resulting from a collagen deficiency, it is therefore important to consume antioxidants in order to protect this protein from the harmful effects of free radicals. It is also possible to increase the collagen content of the tissues supposed to contain it by an external contribution in the form of a food supplement.
How to Take Collagen?
It is also useful for restoring joint comfort and preventing tendonitis and other complications due to intensive physical exercise.
Collagen-Based Food Supplements
While collagen is found in various foods of animal origin, the proteins consumed in this manner are too large to be properly absorbed through the intestinal lining. This is why dietary supplement manufacturers use hydrolysis to break down collagen protein into small sections made up of amino acids called peptides or collagen hydrolyzes. Today, hydrolyzed collagen extracted from different sources is commercially available: bovine collagen from beef, marine collagen from the scales and bones of fish or the shells of crustaceans, porcine collagen from pork, etc.
Concerned about offering you the best possible active principle, we have selected for you an innovative patented active ingredient from a natural and ethical source. Extracted without chemical solvent from the membrane of chicken eggs, it does not promote overfishing, unlike marine collagen and does not present the health risks associated with the extraction of collagen from beef bones and cartilages.
