What is Collagen?

Collagen is a key component of the basic structures of the human body and the connective tissue. It is an abundant protein of the body, accounting for about 30% of total body protein and 75% of the protein that makes up skin. As a result, collagen is the main constituent of our skin.

Collagen plays a leading role in all body functions since it is responsible for:

    • The outer body (skin and hair)
    • The flexibility & mobility of the body’s structural components (cartilages & joints)
    • The smooth functioning of internal organs
    • The maintenance of good form for blood vessels and bone density

Collagen’s role in the skin’s structure

Common structural property of collagen is the presence of three polypeptide chains, that form a helix. A single collagen fibre comprises of multiple triple helices. There are several types of collagen in the human body. The most common are Types I, II & III, which are found in skin, tendons, joints, cartilages & blood vessels.

As we age, our organism tends to produce less collagen at a declining rate of about 1,5% per year from the age of 25 onwards. As a result, bones lose density, joints become more rigid, hair volume decreases, skin elasticity lessens and muscles weaken. The number and activity of skin cells (fibroblasts), that produce collagen, decreases. As fibroblasts become less active, the collagen matrix which provides skin firmness and structure, starts to break down. Skin then becomes dehydrated and thinner, plus, fine lines, wrinkles and deep furrows start to appear.

So, what can we do to replace collagen in our organism? Since sufficient quantity of Collagen cannot be provided through the consumption of different kind of food, therefore the intake of Collagen is essential.

What is Hydrolysed Collagen?

Hydrolysed collagen, which is the leading form of collagen, is produced through the process of enzymatic hydrolysis of collagen protein. The process of hydrolysis involves breaking down the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands using combinations of enzymes. This process doesn’t use heat, chemicals or acids, but rather collagen is dissolved in water. The hydrolysis process results in reducing the collagen proteins of about 300,000 Da into small peptides having an average molecular weight between 2000 and 5000 Da.

Clinical studies have shown that the percentage of bioavailability is more than 90%¹, ². Oral administration of hydrolysed collagen is absorbed within the first 12 hours from the intake.

Hydrolysed collagen contains 20 amino acids, which together represent around 50% of the total amino acid content.

 

Hydrolysed Collagen’s peptides contain three times higher amount of proline, glycine and hydroxyproline amino acids. These amino acids are essential for the synthesis of new collagen and they strengthen the stability of collagen’s structure in the body.

Competitive Advantages of Hydrolysed Collagen: Because of its low molecular weight, hydrolysed collagen presents some advantages when used compared to the natural / normal collagen:

  • Dissolves in cold water
  • Highly digestible (more than 90%¹, ² bioavailability)
  • Easily absorbable and can be distributed throughout the human body.

Stimulation of collagen in the body has a positive impact on our wellness by revealing a youthful,
vibrant, fresh and vital inner beauty!!!

Pro-active’s benefits in Beauty:

For Hair

Pro-active provides benefits for the hair as well. It is clinically proven that the hydrolysed collagen in Pro-active enhances hair strength and appearance.

For Skin

Pro-Active increases the density of the fibres and fibroblasts, which are the principal cells of the skin and are responsible for the production of collagen. Pro-Active once absorbed by the small intestine is distributed from the arteries to the deepest layer of the skin, leading to fibroblast proliferation and increased collagen production. With daily use of Pro-Active, the skin becomes more hydrated.

  • Enhances skin beauty
  • Contributes to the maintenance of normal skin tonicity
  • Contributes to the maintenance of skin elasticity & hydration (6)
  • May help to fight against the visible signs of skin aging
  • Contribute to the stimulatory effect of the Collagen biosynthesis in the body tissue (13)
  • May function as stimuli for fibroblasts to effect repair of damaged tissue (8)
  • Improves skin’s dryness (5)
  • Enhances hair strength and appearance from 5% to 45% (7)

Pro-active’s benefits in Sport:

For Sport

Collagen is an excellent form of protein as it contains 8 out of the 9 basic amino acids. Intense exercise destroys protein in the body making their replacement very important. Pro-Active also contains glycine and arginine that play an important role during exercise, providing energy to the body and thus improving athletic performance. In addition, hydrolysed collagen contributes significantly to the rapid restoration of tissue, ligaments and cartilage, and muscle post injury.

  • Contributes to the normal muscle function through maintenance and growth through Collagen Protein Magnesium
  • Promotes much easier sport and recreational activity (3)
  • Reduces the risk of joint & cartilage injury and supports recovery time after physical activity (4)
  • Assists in the normal metabolism of fat and protein in the organism, while supporting active nutrition through Magnesium and Vitamins B5, B2, B6 & B1
  • Maintains a healthy digestive tract (14) (15) (16)
