Collagen is the predominant form of protein throughout the body. It’s part of connective tissues, bones, cartilage, and supports red blood cells and tissue integrity. With aging, the body’s production of collagen decreases which results in many health issues.
Supplementing with collagen boosts the body’s metabolic processes and can help offset the decline in collagen due to aging. Collagen proteins are long chain amino acid structures, particularly rich in glycine, which supports metabolic functions and detoxification. Collagen plays a vital role in joint maintenance and the body’s normal joint health processes.
Collagen and Skin Health
It also is essential for skin elasticity (Collagen Type I) and thus has gained a reputation for skin, hair, and nail normal health and youthfulness. Collagen is particularly beneficial to the skin’s dermis (the deep layer) health, especially for people over age 50.
Collagen has the amazing ability to support muscle, bone, and connective tissue in balance with body fat, thus supporting a favorable muscle mass and body composition. Eggshell membranes are powerhouses of nutrients similar to Collagen types I and V. They are rich in glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycans and amino acids—all vital nutrients for joint health and strong connective tissues throughout the body. The availability of these supportive amino acid chains provides the body the specific molecules it requires to maintain overall integrity of his structure and functionality.
Hyaluronic Acid: Supports the body’s innate collagen synthesis processes, i.e. the body’s inherent youthful cell maintenance processes.
Numerous scientific studies attest to the value of supplementing collagen proteins to maintain body youthfulness and performance. The six most common types of collagen are included in Collagen ECM, making it the world’s most potent and complete formula containing:
Type I: Skin, tendons, vascular ligatures, bones, and organs
Type II: Cartilage
Type III: Reticulate fibers (forms crosslinks for connective tissue strength and durability)
Type IV: Basement membrane strength (the extra cellular matrix and skin support)
Type V: Supports hair health, placenta integrity, and cell structure strength
Type X: Supports articular cartilage
