Collagen protein represents approximately 30% of total protein in the body and is present in all organs. There are 28 different types of collagens. Collagen protein can cause allergic reaction and not properly absorbed from the intestine. Therefore, collagen peptides are used, because they are easily converted to amino acids which are rapidly absorbed from the intestine. Cells use amino acids to make specific types of collagens according to their need.
During aging, loss of collagen and elastin occurs because they are gradually degraded by their enzymes collagenase and elastase. Some commercial collagen peptides have used Amla as a source of antioxidants showed improvement in skin texture, but the beneficial effects on the skin does not last long because the activities of the enzymes which degrades them are not inhibited. Collagen Daily has inhibitors of collagenase and elastase form Amla extract and white tea extract.
During aging, decreased activity of synthetic enzyme hyaluronic acid synthase causes reduced levels of hyaluronic acid. Therefore, supplementation with hyaluronic acid to Collagen Daily with enzyme inhibitors is essential.
The following external health benefits are expected from the supplementation with collagen daily:
- Increases the levels of collagen in the skin.
- Increases hydration and elasticity of the skin.
- Reduces skin sagging and wrinkles.
- Improves physical appearance.
- Recovers lost cartilage tissue.
- Strengthens tendon and ligament.
- Deceases activity-related joint pain.
- Improves bone mineral density in post-menopausal women.
The following internal health benefits are expected from the supplementation with collagen daily:
- Improves memory by protecting cholinergic neurons responsible for storing memory from the toxic effects of beta-amyloid.
- Improves memory and learning ability by upregulating BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor).
- Improves symptoms of sarcopenia (loss of muscle).
- Reduces osteoarthritis pain.
- Reduces symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis.
- Helps in wound healing.
- Improves insulin secretion.
